Lol she told me that English guys had "rough" looks too, just not the cowboy thing. She told me if I showed up in an English pub looking like I do I might not get out alive. I miss her, she went back to the UK.
Good description from a man's point of view. I think you described it perfectly.

That's funny, I love the ruggedly handsome look! But don't worry about if you're ruggedly handsome or not-just look like yourself. My husband is actually not that rugged, but I still find him very handsome. If you're not rugged on your own, don't worry about it. I think ruggedly handsome men are born, not made. I agree, think Robert Redford, Marlboro man, Paul Hogan (Crocodile Dundee). Hollywood has attempted to make Harrison Ford, Brat Pitt, and Matt Dillon ruggedly handsome in some films but because their faces are more pretty, they just looked like handsome men trying to be rugged. All in all though, if you're easy on the eyes, it doesn't matter!

By the way, who was the Marlboro Man and is he still alive. He has to be the sexiest, hottest, most ruggedly handsome man I can think of!!!

Yeah he is!!!

Personally, my favorites are Mike Rowe, Gary Oldman and Hugh Laurie.
I can only think of Gary Oldman as Dracula and Sirius Black . Mike Rowe and Hugh Laurie Mmmhmmm!!!

Yummy, I love a rugged man much better than a handsome soft man.
Exactly!!!

To me, men should smell like Old Spice lol... or something along that spicy/woodsy/earthy/musky scent. Good lord! Nothing better than a rugged good smelling man! MELT!

Hmmm, I think Redford is as pretty as Pitt....I think they looked a LOT alike when they were young.

In celebrities, I like the gorgeous men with masculine style, but in person I can like men who aren't "pretty" in the face.
