Guys Dig Other Guys? Surprise, Surprise.

That's the gist of this new survey:

Women Who Use 'Guy Humor' Get All the Guys.

"What do guys want? Themselves, apparently.

Or at least someone who has an identical sense of humor. According to a study of 331,138 eHarmony male users, the style of humor that men most appreciate from a woman is "sarcastic," followed by "juvenile", "geeky" or "raw." (eHarmony defines those last three as "guy humor.") While all of these terms are frustratingly vague, we can't help but feel that they are describing our little brother. And somehow that's sexy?

Come to think of it, we're not that surprised that men are attracted to women whom they feel can riff off of their "That's What She Said" quips and Judd Apatow-inspired jokes. We're just surprised that these women exist..." (source)

Of course, being a girl that loved Howard Stern, hockey, Harleys and muscle cars, I guess I totally qualify here. That being said, I don't know that I agree. I think many men find girls like me intimidating as a partner. I don't squeal at the sight of a spider or mouse. I do my own yard work, pump my own gas, and carry my own packages. I could eat lunch during an autopsy and can real in a 13 lb fighting Bluefish with the best of them. And yes, I've been known to throw out a 'That's what she said' when it can't be avoided...

I think guys do love girls like me...as a buddy. I think they want the spider-squealers as a love interest. It makes them feel more needed...
