What makes for a "Good Looking Couple"?

    I hear that phrase fairly often, meant as a compliment about a gay couple, and I use it myself. But what exactly does it mean? And should we use it at all?

    I've always meant it to be a couple of guys who just look "right" together, who seem to compliment each other. But I'm really not sure what my thought processes are that leads me to make that judgment. Is it similar appearance in age, type, height, attitude, attractiveness... just what is it?

    A few times I've been told it about myself and a guy, and it makes me blush, and rather happy. Except for a few awkward times when I wasn't really with the guy, just talking together or something with my BF nearby, and the complimenter didn't know us. "OK, hun, time to leave!" LOL!

    So whadda ya think?

    LOL. We get that all the time.

    Love your posts, Red Vespa, but the bold print always makes
    it look like you're yelling. heh.

    We both agree with you, that it's more to do with demonstrated interactiveness than physical looks. We've seen the most attractive examples of men look terrible together based on their behaviour in the presence of each other.

    Thanks. Yeah, I like your term "demonstrated interactiveness." You just feel the level of comfort & attraction between them.

    Sorry about the font bolding. My vision isn't good, and recently I developed "floaters" due to some kind of retinal detachment, from too many motorcycle crashes and other clonks to my head. That's why I use lots of paragraph breaks, too.

    I'd increase the font size, but isn't that shouting, too? I really only use it for proof-reading in Preview, so maybe I can delete the extra formatting before I post a message.

    Hey Mr Red,

    Floaters are nasty. I have some interesting ones from using a weed-wacker without eye-goggles. The doc had a fit.

    A larger font would be fine, as it's not CAPS - only thing is, will a larger font in lower case work in posts? Never tried.

    (Light salute) Keep on, keep on - love your posts!

    Thanks again. I can understand about the weed wacker where you live. I was in the Everett-Lynnwood area north of Seattle for a number of years, and recognize the lush northern rain forest growth around your house.

    Rode up into Vancouver on occasion, there was a gay biker club called "Border Riders" that included Canadians. And then there was a motorcycle rally at Lynden each year, that I'd do while camped over at Larrabee State Park south of Bellingham.

    Sorry, getting off my own topic. Just always amazes me when the Internet finds people of similar experiences across thousands of miles.

    Agreed. A really good looking couple sometimes is greater than the sum of its parts. It's in the interaction, the chemistry, and all that good stuff.

    When I say a couple looks good together, I am commenting on the way the energy flows back and forth between them......complimenting each other and indicating a common ground.

    Often, physical looks compliment the energy, which makes it more noticable. It is possible though, for a good looking couple to physically look good together, but they don't have the good energy to go along with it.

    I think it means mathematical reciprocity. Numbers like 69, that sort of thing.

    Couples that are comfortable in each other's presence are attractive. I have seen "good-looking couples" in the physical sense who were not pleasant to be around.

    And a desire for an "open relationship" is a must.

    And couples who 'complement each other', 'are each other's soulmates', 'hates each other's guts', 'fight all the time', 'virtually married', 'peas in a pod', 'look cute together', 'look hot together', 'are so adorable I want to adopt both of them' and...

    the icon_eek.gif couples as in... 'WHA?! Is he really going out with him? Is he really gonna take him home tonight? Cuz if my eyes don't deceive me there's something going wrong around here...'

    For me it's a couple that doesn't make one think, "how did HE snag THAT?"

    And it's surface looks mostly. I'm too superficial and self-centered to notice how others interact very much.

    We get it a lot. But, it's more about how we interact together that most people comment on.
