At any rate, I was thinking. Yes, I do it occasionally. What is it about a man that defines him as your "hero"? I bring that up because we all are romance readers and we all have our own preferences when it comes to our heroes in fiction. Personally, I tend to go for those overbearing, protective borderline-obsessive/possessive types. Not entirely sure why, but to each their own right?
That being said, many real men in our lives might not carry many of the qualities that we find in our fictional men.
So, what exactly defines a real man as the hero to your heroine (you)? Is it his body, sense of honor, perhaps sense of humor, or even his protective instincts?
Are the heroes in your real life anything remotely like your fictional heroes you favor in novels?
Just curious. Your thoughts are always welcome.
