For me, it's an attitude - he must be arrogant (I know, weird, huh), he must be dangerous, he must be tormented, he must be quick witted and at times, sarcastic.

Mark Darcy from Bridgette Jones's Diary is a brilliant example.

Anyone else?

you just about got it all covered I always go for the 'bad boy' or the moody one in any group

I want all that, but I also like a little sensitivity mingled in as well. I don't want a total weeper, but I want someone that can show it when needed.

Oh, he should be tall too :D (Is it too late to add that to the list?)

Thought of another good example - Logan/Wolverine

Yep, all of what you said, Lexx...and just that little hint of obsession in regards to the heroine... ;)

It's definitely the attitude that makes the difference. Someone who's walked the edge of hell and made it back again. Seen the edge of what could be, perhaps went a little over the line once or twice, but has come out of the fire tempered. He doesn't have to be alpha to get what he needs...

Definitely need sarcasm and sparks of humor that throw me off guard.

When he doesn't want to do anything heroic, but has to anyway...

I wouldn't know *anyone* that fits that description... :)

I've met one or two but they were usually really tortured and hated anyone mentioning what they'd done.

Oh yeah, he's good! I like Gerard Butler in Timeline. That's one of my ideas of a hot hero. :biggrin:
