Beers & Skittles: A Crash Course in Heart-throbs 


In a world where love knows no limits and romantic notions flood the air more often than flu season, it’s easy to believe that there’s a Blake Lively out there for every Ryan Reynolds, or vice versa. But let’s face it, sometimes it feels like Romeo’s struggling to find his way to Juliet’s window, clueless about what she really wants and making one mistake after another. Soon enough, he’s left alone in his apartment, drowning his sorrows in a family-sized bag of chips while someone else sweeps Juliet off her feet. Well, that ends now! It’s time for the main guy to step up and take charge. Trust us when we say, it’s not rocket science—it’s more like a game of chess, where strategic moves lead to winning with the queen. So without further ado, welcome to Heartthrobs 101—a cheat sheet for the Bridgerton male lead glow-up.

  1. Sorry Charlie Puth, but over here we ARE talking more 

Isn’t it funny how we can chat up a storm about the most mundane subjects, but when it comes to opening up to our partners, suddenly we’re tongue-tied like toddlers learning to speak? It’s not really anyone’s fault, but the generational stigma in Asian families that labels confabulating about feelings as a sign of weakness. As a result, when we mature and start looking for that special someone, we find ourselves suppressing emotions until they inevitably erupt in destructive ways. 

So gentlemen, if there is something weighing on your mind or warrants a serious discussion, learn to recognise it, and address it accordingly with your partner. Don’t beat around the bush or pretend to ignore the elephant in the room—in fact flip that elephant over and dissect it (metaphorically speaking). 

  1. ‘Dream Big’

Ever pondered why people are so infatuated with some fictional male characters such as Captain America, Mr. Darcy, Flynn Rider and Finnick Oddair, despite their two-dimensional existence and inability to reciprocate affection? Beyond their obvious good looks, these characters are depicted as individuals who pursue their ambitions relentlessly, whether it’s sweeping the girl of their dreams off her feet with grand gestures or battling  enemies to reclaim what’s rightfully theirs. They epitomise resilience and grit when it comes to manifesting their dreams into realities, a trait that not only swoons women but also assures them of a partner who remains steadfastly committed to their goals.

So, the next time a woman asks about your life goals or what you envision for the future, don’t shrug it off with an “I don’t know.” Take the opportunity to share your dreams and aspirations down to the tiniest detail. If possible, even whip out a Pinterest board to illustrate your vision! Show her that you are a Romeo with drive. 

  1. The Pedro Pascal persona 

You are thinking of  that edit from tiktok aren’t you, and honestly i don’t blame you, the man is the ideal package wrapped in a big ol’ blanket of female gaze. Sure, some might argue he’s just an average Joe or maybe a bit overrated, but what really sets him apart is his unshakeable sense of security in his masculinity and the complete lack of male ego — which makes you not just want marry him, but also become a couple of besties going for pedicures together. With grooming habits that nurture his perfectly tousled curly locks to frame his face just right, a voice that could rival a prince’s, and a physique that’s both tender and strong, he’s practically a dream come true. Besides, he’s also been a vocal advocate for the advancement of women, LGBTQ+ individuals, immigrants, and various other marginalised groups, cementing himself as a strong ally and a voice for the underrepresented. It’s this aura of gentle masculinity (plus insane good looks of course) that’s earned him the title of “internet daddy” among countless women. 


So fellas, when you see your crush or significant other blushing over his edit or interview clips again, don’t get defensive or jealous. Instead, observe the man like he is your handbook to soft masculinity and channel the energy back out. As women, we don’t expect you to charge into battle at the frontline, but rather to be comfortable enough of yourself, that you don’t feel threatened or compelled to assert dominance. 

  1. Brains over Brawns

It’s rather odd how in movies, intellectual people or “nerds”, are often regarded as the bottom of the social hierarchy and become targets to many insults, despite possessing knowledge that is capable of filling an entire library. If there’s one trait that can instantly transform someone from a 4 to a perfect 10, it’s the depth of their wits. Whether it’s fun facts, an encyclopaedic knowledge of obscure subjects, or the ability to crunch numbers effortlessly without a calculator – nothing exudes attractiveness quite like intelligence. Knowledge isn’t just a symbol of education; it reflects a lifelong commitment to learning and personal growth in you. It justifies the confidence and curiosity for the never-ending exploration of the world.

Hence, being smart doesn’t make you uncool, it makes you appear as the future billionaire and owner of a multimillion company! (cough Tony Stark cough). So, the next time you’re looking to impress a girl, make sure you’ve got a few fascinating facts up your sleeve, and are well-prepared to discuss a range of subjects that might pique her interest. Take a page from Sherlock Holmes‘ playbook and have a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips, from chemistry to literature, but of course, don’t inherit his inability to ever be romantic.

  1. “I am NOT an idiot sandwich”

Alright, let’s sprinkle some flavour into this! Picture this: a guy who’s not just handy with a toolbox, but also wields a mean spatula in the kitchen. It’s like wearing a chef’s hat and a superhero cape (apron, I mean) all rolled into one! When a guy can rock it in the kitchen, it’s like he’s showing off his A-game. I mean, have you ever seen someone whisk eggs with that much gusto? It’s a sight to behold! Skill and confidence? Yep, he’s got that in spades. And it’s not just about flipping pancakes; it’s about showcasing his independence and capability to take care of himself and maybe even whip up a meal for two. I mean, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a home cooked meal every now and then. And if that special someone can make a neat grilled cheese toast, we have a clear winner. 

Okay, if you have ever seen a guy cook in action, it’s like watching a maestro at work! And when you take a bite of the food, oh man, your wildest cravings are completely fulfilled. Think of it like ‘A Wonka Wonderland for Food’—a ticket to pure bliss, revealing life’s essence in every bite. It’s nourishing, surprising, and full of stories. And these guys, who can cook? They’re like storytellers, decoding flavors and creating something entirely new. When you sit down to enjoy their creation, it’s like it has a whole story to tell, filling you up with pure joy. So yeah, any food lover worth their salt is totally down for this culinary adventure with a man who can whip up food! I mean you don’t have to be perfect like Gordon Ramsay or Nick DiGiovanni, as long as you make something edible, it should be good enough.

Nick DiGiovanni

But wait, there’s more! It’s not only about unleashing that inner Picasso, getting creative with ingredients, and turning them into edible masterpieces, especially for the special someone. It’s also about the journey! Cooking together? It’s like a culinary road trip, with plenty of laughs and maybe a minor mishap or two (Whoops, dropped the flour! Guess it’s time for a flour fight). Plus, let’s not forget the romance factor. Candlelit dinner, soft music playing in the background, and your guy whipping up a gourmet feast. It’s like a scene straight out of a rom-com! And hey, who can resist a man who knows his way around the kitchen? It’s like saying, “Hey, I got this. Let me take care of you. Just sit still and wait for the food to arrive.” I mean, whoever cooks for me, I’m kidnapping them as my personal chef forever. So yeah, skills in the kitchen? Major plus point in making a guy look attractive. It’s not just about the food; it’s about stirring up some serious attraction!

Oh, let me tell you, confidence and a goofy sense of humour in a guy? It’s like a magnetic combo that just draws you in! The ultimate double whammy of attraction! So, picture this: you’re at a party, and there’s this guy who’s just oozing confidence. He walks in like he owns the place, but not in a cocky way, oh no. It’s more like this quiet assurance that just draws everyone’s attention. It’s like this irresistible aura that screams, “I’m sexy and I know it!” Sometimes, it’s even better when they don’t know that they ARE attractive, it just makes things more interesting. He’s not afraid to strike up a conversation, make eye contact, and hold his own in any discussion. And let me tell you, there’s something undeniably magnetic about that kind of self-assuredness. He knows who he is, what he wants, and he’s not afraid to go after it. And that? Well, that makes people go crazy.

But here’s the thing: he’s not just all serious business. Oh no, this guy’s got a goofy side too. He’s the one cracking jokes, doing silly impressions, and finding humour in the most unexpected places. It’s like he’s got a secret stash of jokes that he just can’t wait to share with the world. His laughter is infectious, and before you know it, you’re laughing along with him, feeling lighter and happier than you did before. And let’s not forget, a guy who can laugh at himself? That’s like the cherry on top of the cake! It shows that he doesn’t take himself too seriously, that he’s not afraid to be vulnerable, and that he’s just downright fun to be around. So when you combine that confidence with that goofy sense of humour, well, it’s like a winning combination that’s impossible to resist. It’s like he’s saying, “Hey, I’m confident in who I am, and I’m not afraid to let loose and have a good time.” And let me tell you, there’s nothing more attractive than a guy who’s comfortable in his own skin and knows how to bring a smile to your face. 

Jim Carrey

Take Detective Jake Peralta from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or Jim Halpert from The Office, or even Phil Dunphy from Modern Family. What do they all have in common? What makes them one of the favourite characters from the shows? Well, obviously the way they make us laugh. But think about the time when they get dead serious. WOAHHHH. It brings out a whole new person. It’s highly magnetising. I don’t know about others, but a guy who can control his emotions like a switch is just undeniably attractive (Fellas, take note). So yes, confidence and humour in a man? It’s the perfect recipe for charm, charisma, and a whole lot of fun!

  1. Runway Rendezvous

Ah, let’s talk about the power of clothing to make a guy seriously attractive! A guy who knows how to rock his threads like it’s nobody’s business, is downright *chef’s kiss*. It’s not just about putting on clothes; it’s about crafting a whole vibe, a persona that’s uniquely his own. First off, there’s the wow factor. When a guy steps out in an outfit that he feels good in, it’s like he’s radiating “coolness”.” And let me tell you, confidence? It’s like catnip for attraction! But it’s not just about looking good; it’s about making a statement. Whether he’s rocking a sharp suit, a laid-back denim jacket, or a classic white tee and jeans combo, his clothing choices speak volumes about who he is and what he’s all about. It’s like a glimpse into his personality, his tastes, and his interests. And let’s not forget about the details! The way he accessorises himself, the way he plays with colours and patterns – it’s all part of the package. It shows that he’s got style, that he pays attention to the little things, and that he’s not afraid to take risks. From black tie guys like Tom Ellis from Lucifer, to schlub styles like Adam Sandler, everyone has a style they adorn to feel attractive.

(Let me fangirl more)

Any Bridgerton fans in the house? If yes, then we all know that we only watched it for the plot, and boy, was that plot steamy! We all know it’s not about what we watch, it’s about who we watch (don’t lie to yourself). But let’s be real, another thing that had us glued to the screen was the jaw-dropping fashion sense of those leading men. I mean, talk about regal old money aesthetics done right! Every outfit they rocked was  a work of art, meticulously tailored to perfection and oozing with sophistication. From those impeccably fitted coats to the intricate detailing on their waistcoats, every piece of clothing seemed to tell a story of wealth, power, and undeniable charm. And let’s not forget about the accessories—those pocket watches, cravats, and top hats added an extra layer of refinement that had us swooning. Whether they were strolling through the ballroom or engaging in some scandalous rendezvous, those guys knew how to make a statement with their fashion choices. So yeah, while the plot may have been the main draw, there’s no denying that the eye-catching wardrobe of those Bridgerton men was definitely a close second!


If you weren’t a fan of Bridgerton, then maybe another show, movie, or even a book, must have impressed you with their fashion sense. No worries! Take the inspiration and have a whole wardrobe change to be a new man (if you want to, that is). But here’s the thing: clothing isn’t just about impressing others; it’s about feeling good about yourself. When a guy puts on an outfit that he loves, that makes him feel confident and comfortable in his own skin, he’s unstoppable. He’s walking a little taller, smiling a little brighter, and attracting attention left and right. So yeah, clothing? It’s  the ultimate confidence booster, the secret weapon in the game of attraction. And when a guy knows how to wield that power? Well, let’s just say, it’s a game-changer.

Alright, let’s see what makes them irresistible as a golden retriever and as captivating as a Doberman!

With a heart as golden as his fur, he’s always ready to shower you with unconditional love and affection, sticking by your side through thick and thin with unwavering devotion. Just like his canine counterpart, he’s friendly, approachable, and oh-so-easy to love. And much like a wagging tail, his infectious enthusiasm for life is downright contagious and oh-so-easy to love.

But then there’s the Doberman guy

Let me introduce you to the Doberman guy AKA the John Wick dude. Much like the powerful and regal Doberman breed, he carries himself with an unmistakable air of strength that naturally draws attention from those around him. He’s a protector and a loyal companion to those lucky enough to earn his trust. He’s not afraid to speak his mind and stand up for what he believes in, unapologetically asserting his opinions and values.

But there’s more to him than just his outward strength and confidence. Beneath that tough exterior lies a heart of gold, fiercely loyal and deeply caring towards those he holds dear. He’s a natural protector, always ready to defend his loved ones with unwavering determination and courage. Loyalty runs deep in his veins, and once you earn his trust, you can count on him to stand by your side through thick and thin. He’s the epitome of reliability, a steadfast companion who will go to great lengths to ensure the safety and happiness of those he cares about.

In a world where strength and loyalty are highly valued, the brooding, serious, Doberman guy stands out as a beacon of reliability and protection. He exudes a quiet confidence and strength that is both reassuring and awe-inspiring. So if you ever find yourself in need of a steadfast companion and protector, look no further than the Doberman guy – with his unwavering loyalty and fierce determination, he’s sure to have your back through whatever challenges life throws your way.

Now, combine the best traits of both the golden retriever guy and the Doberman guy, and you’ve got a winning combination that’s seriously attractive. Picture a guy who’s as loyal and warm as a golden retriever, always there with a comforting presence and a listening ear. But at the same time, he’s got the strength and confidence of a Doberman, unafraid to take charge and stand up for what’s right. He’s the kind of guy who’s not afraid to show his softer side, but who’s also a force to be reckoned with when it comes to protecting those he cares about.

In the end, whether he’s as gentle and loyal as a golden retriever or as strong and confident as a Doberman, what truly makes a guy attractive is his character. It’s not just about looks or charm; it’s about who he is as a person, deep down to his core. Character is what sets a guy apart. Whether he’s a modern-day knight in shining armour, a beacon of kindness in a cynical world, or a passionate dreamer with his eyes on the stars, one thing’s for sure: when a guy’s got character, he’s got it all. And that, my friends, is the true essence of attractiveness – a combination of inner strength, kindness, passion, and authenticity that lights up the world around him. So here’s to the golden retriever guys, the Doberman guys, and every guy in between – may your character shine as brightly as your smile, and may you always be surrounded by those who appreciate you for who you are.

  1. When Quirks Meets Charisma

Let’s sprinkle some fun into this! Imagine a guy who’s not just charming but has a knack for treating people right – it’s like he’s got a secret superpower that makes him irresistibly adorable! Picture this: he’s the kind of guy who knows how to rock a room with his charisma, but more than that, he’s got this way of picking up on every little thing about you. He might be quiet but boy is he attentive. It’s like he’s got this secret radar or something, always observing, always paying attention. And he knows exactly what to get when you need something without you having to lift a finger.

He’s making people feel valued, appreciated, and loved, and that’s the kind of magic that’s impossible to resist.

And let’s not forget about passion. When he has his own dreams and ambitions and he’s not afraid to chase after them, he naturally radiates this infectious energy that you just can’t help but be drawn to. Whether he’s passionate about his career, his hobbies, or making the world a better place, that kind of drive and determination? PERFECTION!
