Fire & Ice: Guys

I'd like to talk about Fire & Ice in the sense of what's hot and what's cool when it comes to guys. And keep in mind it's all subjective of course! Personally, I think a guy who cooks is uber-hot... and don't get me started on one who can diagram a sentence, too...

Anyway there are some hybrid models of Fire & Ice. As a visual example, I give you my post-Heath celeb crush Luke Wilson, who is both hot and cool...

Hot Guys:

Like to read (smart is the hottest thing ever!)
Listen to what you say and remember
Are hot even in jeans and a t-shirt
Are great kissers
Are nice to your Mom
Don't necessarily know they are hot
Are secure enough to let you know they like you

Cool Guys:

Like to read (smart is the coolest thing ever!)
Listen to what you say and bring it up later
Always seem to have things under control
Are quick with a witty line
Are great kissers
Are nice to your best friends
Have some kind of unique intersts
Know how to dress
Sense they are at least semi-cool but aren't jerky about it
Aren't as forth-coming about how they feel even if they like you.

The ideal is to find a combo of both Fire & Ice (hello, Luke Wilson!) in one guy, but I think it's pretty hard to find.

So what do you guys think? What makes a guy hot and what makes a guy cool?

Oh, yes, great descriptions here, Heather!

One trait I'd like to add that is definitely hot (on a cool guy) is when you find him staring at you...and he doesn't turn away, rather, adds a hint of a smile...

Okay, let me try this again. Yummy.. I like this topic. Derek Jeter - so hot (look at him - enough said) and so cool (lives in NYC, that mischievous grin).

I LOVE Luke Wilson. I wish he were in more movies. Great characteristics for hot/cold guys, Heather~

Luke has serious charm. but then again, so does his brother. Must run in the family.

Love, love, love Luke Wilson. My favorite of his movie roles are LEGALLY BLONDE and ALEX & EMMA.

I have to say that CONFIDENCE is a super-hot trait of cool guys.
