Over the past year, while reading the most incredible Aussie YA, I've built up this ideal of the Aussie male. I'm sad to say that while babysitting my 3-year-old niece, that myth was shattered after two minutes of something called The Wiggles.

Kat Kennedy In my experience, yes, we do have some über hawt and lovely guys. But most of the Australian men are bogans, bums, heavily misogynistic or care more about their tan lines than I do. In my experience, trying to find a working brain in a good body with a nice personality can be a little difficult.

I suppose that's the story in a lot of places - but I should warn you. This is no manadise for romanticism.

Maree Kat that is so true! Also, they usually spend longer doing their hair than I do...that is a definite turn off!

Maggie Nooooo! Don't tell me that Lleyton Hewitt is the norm and not the exception! I believe in Mackee!

message 12: by Kat Kennedy (new)

Kat Kennedy Sorry, Maggie. He's a CUB (Cashed Up Bogan) but he is not at all the exception.

message 13: by Maree (new)

Maree Especially not if you visit my hometown...we have cowboy bogans!
