Good answer, Cosmopolitan.

Q: My girlfriends and I all love to watch sports and hang out with the guys, but we've been starting to wonder if men aren't really into tomboys. We have to be more fun than the chicks who just like shopping and gossip, right?

A: (purportedly from 'guy guru', Jonathan Small) Some guys dig a chick who can kick back and watch the game without needing someone to explain every play to her. Others prefer the girlie girls who wear heels, smell nice, and do that sexy twirly thing with their hair. (I guess girls who watch sports don't "smell nice".) I think most guys just want to be with someone who's balanced and well-rounded...
For this reason, you might want to consider throwing a few tricks from the girlie playbook into your game plan. For example, next time you're at the sports bar, do something flirty, like feeding a guy a peanut or laughing and putting a hand on his thigh when he tells a joke. You may even want to trade in your jeans occasionally for something more sultry, like a short skirt...

Nope. Cosmopolitan.

I have no regrets, but I admit, back in the seventies, my spouse and I went to this place with shag carpeting, and I watched her feed peanuts to other men, and other women fed me peanuts. It was only once.
