Regarding Peter Capaldi ....

This is for Research.  I promise.

Poll #1928827 Peter Capaldi:


It's not that simple, as I will explain in the comments.

(Actually, it *is* for research.  My friend S., who writes a column about comic books, asked my opinion.  I thought I'd expand the size of the sample.)

"Dreamy" isn't quite the right word -- I find him handsome and sexy, but I think I'd reserve "dreamy" for more conventionally attractive people, like George Clooney.

The question as put to me was: "Peter Capaldi: is he 'dreamy'?" I answered in the affirmative, but I've had a crush on Capaldi since LOCAL HERO.

I wasn't sure if the intent of the question was to solicit opinions on whether Capaldi is attractive (yes) or whether he's a particular kind of attractive. "Dreamy" isn't a word I really use.

I don't normally, either, but for some reason S. likes to use it, with implied air quotes. The question he phrased to me included the word "dreamy" but what he really wanted to know was whether we found Capaldi attractive.

Silver fox.

I'm going to go with "dreamy" though maybe I'd describe him as simply "pretttty hot" or "silver fox" or just plain "yum." Dreamy kind of implies teen idol qualities which doesn't describe Peter Capaldi, obvs, but he's not unattractive to me in the least. I'd hit that.

Yeah, although the question as put to me had the specific word "dreamy", "Yum? Y/N?" might have been a better phrasing.

I'd dare call him more attractive (to me) than Matt Smith, who isn't unattractive, per se, but isn't my cuppa. Dreamy isn't the word I'd use (agreed with the Silver Fox thoughts here), but he's more dreamy than not.

Smith was just *too young* for me to feel more than ... materteral towards him. Capaldi is just about at the upper limit of my age range: older than me, but not an "old man" by any means.

I would relax my "I'm not ready yet to be 'Grandpa's lady friend'" rule about dating if the grandfather in question looked and moved like Peter Capaldi.
