The dark looks. The narrowed eyes. The closed off posture. The half-commental grunt. The stalking.
WAIT…KEIONDA.. LIKE WHAT THE WHAT ARE YOU GOING ON AND ON ABOUT??JEESH.
*gives you THE coyest of coy smiles*
Read on bumblebees. Read on and all your glorious questions shall be answered.
Gosh. Okay my sweet and delectable bumblebees, I’m STUMPED. I need help with how guys show jealousy for a current novel I’m writing. I’ve been reading about some body language but it’s just not happening.
Now…now don’t we all just love it when our hero has his jealous moments? They’re so deliciously cute and I always feel so wicked whenever that half, coy smile forms on my face when it happens or that tense anticipation when I KNOW it’s about to happen. I’ve highlighted some jealous things in guys but it’s not a very good list. (Eh, well I needs more ideas. LOTS MORE. So that’s where you guys come in.)
♥SOME JEALOUS SIGNS:
♥Follow love interest around without being obvious. STALKER. This trait, I don’t mind so much because I find it cute that he goes out of his way to see what his ‘girl’ is doing, be it with another dude or just curious about her.
♥Those sideways glares and dark scowls. (For some reason this just RAMPS UP the sexiness appeal for me so if it’s in a book, hands down I ship this dude. Hard. Yo.)
♥Tried to get the upper hand and make guy look bad by means of DOING ANYTHING. I find it wickedly cute if the hero attempts to try to look better than the “competition” and the fact that he will go to any extreme to accomplish this is extremely sexy.
♥He’ll act differently or withdrawn around heroine. (This particular trait, I DON’T find very attractive to me but whatevs. We’re all human here.) But it’s only because it makes me feel his maturity meter doesn’t go very high if this makes any sense?
♥He’ll act like he doesn’t care and is unaffected but PFFT. Come on. He’s not kidding ANYONE around here. If he’s a bold one, he’ll just come out and question the heroine about how close she and the guy are while at the same time trying but failing at maintaining cool, calm, and collected facade but that anger is slipping through the cracks. But if he isn’t, he’ll act like it doesn’t bother him.
Like I said, I think is the nitty gritty, the bare bones of his a guy shows jealously but I know there has to be more out there.
Over to you:
I’m curious to know what YOU GUYS have to say about this? I’ve seen jealousy played out in all kinds of ways but I need something new and fresh to the table. what is your favorite ‘jealous’ signs you’ve seen in a guy or you can pick one from the list. How about your favorite jealous moments from other books? And tell me do YOU get that wicked smile on your face when the hero your totally crushing on is jealous? I know you do. Don’t lie to me. I know all. And I also NEED HELP. READY. SET. GO!!
