As we all know, many fictional men nowadays are written by women. We have so many books and new literature with similar themes. That theme is the brooding bad boy, with dark hair. Do we think that this causes people (women or men) to raise the bar of what a man "should be" when looking for love?
Good topic. It may be useful to provide some brief background as to where those ideas that make it into novels and entertainment come from, such as idealized men from religion, history, or mythology. You could even use that as a jumping-off point to show how certain ideas have changed or even disappeared over time. – CulturallyOpinionated5 months ago
