I love Bondiana. Beautiful ladies, luxurious life, strange dialogues, cars and cruel murders. And above all of this is him. He is always elegant, silent, handsome... Barbie's Ken.

 


But why do we, women, love him so much? After all, if you look at this spy, you will see he is indiscriminate in sexual relations, unreliable, looking for trouble, puts women's lives at risk, ignores their feelings at all! 

WHY, why do we melt every time when hear: "Bond. James Bond"?

Quoting Dakota35:

You wrote: "It´s not difficult to create a mysterious atmosphere and to be a good man." Is Bond mysterious? I'd say yes, kinda. Is he a good man? Have you watched the movies? He's not faithful to any woman, sleeps with them all. If it comes down to him or her getting killed...it's going to be her. Not my idea of a good man but maybe you women have a different idea of a good man? :) Just perhaps it's the fact that he lives a exciting life, traveling the world, exotic places, danger, every woman wants him but cannot have him, he is a challenge? Maybe this is what is exciting to you ladies? Now if in reality there was a guy like James Bond...would you really want him? Really? Should all the guys in the world try hard to be like Bond...shouldn't we if that's what women find sexy and attractive? :) Okay, I realize it's just fantasy. Okay, I realize it's just fantasy.


Dakota 35, I said : "James Bond is the stereotype of the man who knows very well how to manage the silence and how to create a mysterious atmosphere around him." That´s all. ;) I have done a comparison between him and Amélie Poulain in certain points because she wanted to save the world and she was mysterious also and Bond was criminal.. I never said that if James Bond was real that I would like to meet him.. He is a criminal.. If you have a look in my blog you can figure that I am scary of psychopath and people with mental disorders.. So I am definitely not the right woman to meet a criminal. I just appreciate in James Bond his mystery that´s all..

Well, thank you for your comments, y'all :-)

 

to DAKOTA: well, the trick is that we KNOW that he's a fictional character... and this makes him so charming. I said he's perfect as Ken. It means every woman could love this image in her own way. No need to put up with the flaws. They simply don't excist :-)

And this image shows the strength of a male. Which is so attractive to us, women. 

And BF4YAB9 mentioned that.

And here we are dividing the image and the actor.

And CURIOUS wrote about actors. What they brought to make this very boring image alive. They put a lot of their contemporary social content. Connery was agressive, Brosnan added some glamour, Daniel Craig made Bond a hero of a computer bloody game.

Speaking of actors I've noticed that only one actor made Bond sensitive but he played this role only twice. It was Timoty Dalton. He showed to us the bloody nature of this irresponsible lady-killer.

To VOYAGER: I'm sorry but I didn't get your logic.  We all know Bond is an ideal to men as well, because of his 'strength'. But it doesn't mean you should do the same.Nobody needs it, I guess in reality.

And I'm pretty sure that before the new date we should 'clean the house' from the previous, maybe, painful, relationship. And believe that with the next person we would get that luck. But to lock yourself just because of fear that neighbours will say on you or because you decide that girls are bad.... It's not about reality. IT's about the inner fears, I guess. IMHO

Quoting Voyager54:

~LC~...If I was getting laid as often as Bond does in a two hour stretch, even my most callous of friends would accuse me of being a womanizer. Why is it, that it's ok for Bond to get laid 12 times in a two hour stretch with a strange girl every time...but if I even make such a move, I'm accused of being a DOG!? This is another reason I stopped dating. I'd have better luck pumpin' the neighbors cat than getting lucky with any girl these days.


Sweetie, it's NOT okay for Bond to get laid so often. That's why most of us women really don't actually like him very much. We might find him attractive--chalk that up to hormones. But as for intelligent, thoughtful LIKE? Not much.

Another note, LaughingCloud. I never thought of Bond as a real person. I thought of him as Sean Connery, period. All Bond's later incarnations--I was neutral on. Bond, as far as I was concerned was Sean Connery. And I never liked the character much. Not on topic for this blog, but on topic for me--when Sean Connery got "older," no longer able to portray that young, 100 AND 73 PERCENT virile character, I started to like HIM. Connery was still, in a way, Bond, but he became human--through Connery. I hope that makes some sense. It's just that I can't fully separate Connery and Bond. On a further note: The best thing FOR ME about the early Bond movies--and all that came later: JUDI DENCH. What an amazing actress that woman was and still is. I love the way the Brits can go from stage to screen and back again, and off to tv for a time, and then back again to stage or screen. They seem to have the best of it acting-wise. One actor comes to mind--although his name escapes me. Youngish man who played the stuffy love interest of the Keira Knightley character in the original "Pirates of the Caribbean." In the second POTC" he was a down and out character--very well done. And, somewhere during the same time those movies were being filmed, he was doing Brit tv sitcoms that I've seen on hulu. A marvelous actor with a great range. Seriousness to the extreme, satire, to down and out hilariously funny basic comedy. Well...I've rambled/hijaked. Sorry. Just a note I felt compelled to make. How the heck it relates to Bond--it doesn't, I think now. But there you have it.

Curious, I agree, she was more involved in their relationship than him :-)

LADIES, I'm just thinking that his tactic to change his GFs as gloves is much alike to a tactic of some men. Those guys avoid the serious relationship because they're ... scared. They full of fears, and the main one is that they are not so strong in bed. It's easy to change a woman than to prove your strengh, to be REAL. 

Those guys create a world where they're smart, brave, charm the ladies, save the world. And they feel very uncomfortable when the bell of responsibilities starts to ring. 

As for me, I prefer to leave them in their world with peace. And find someone who is not perfect but alive :-) AND can hold the clear talk and make clear actions :-)

Dakota, why do you watch movies about him? I'm interesting in 'what men love about Bond' stuff?

Quoting MissMonteCarlo:

I actually wanted to be Miss Moneypenny just so I could tease him as she was the woman he could never get. The other girls were far too easy! Sarah :-)


Smart thought, Sarah. But I'm not sure Bond ever wanted Miss Moneypenny. I always thought she wanted him, but was far too moral/ethical to stoop to his primoridial, irresponsible, needs.

Diana! Danny is sweet and smart... But I don't like the way of his living... personally... Neither Bond's. :)

Hmmmm.....to tell you the truth....James Bond never did that much for me. The films seemed pretty weak, and he....therefore not that sexy. Yikes!!! :))) I go more for the Danny Ocean type character in Ocean's 11. Clever, confident and strong....but with a bit of that little boy charm that loves openly and bravely. The kind that sticks his hand out and demands that you hold it any time you are walking together. I don't want a man that slobbers all over me....but I do want to KNOW...that I'm the one he wants! *wink*

Quoting laughing_cloud:

Claire ( if I guess your name right)! That's amazing! I've never thought about Amelie as a female variant of Bond! But you're quite right about their intentions. AND the results... Also I think, she is alive person, she is a dreamer but she was made from flesh and blood, and he... he is an artificial bunny from the hat. But his image is so powerful... Maybe, it's about our instincts... Inner animal instincts of desire the strong male beside. Even for a couple of hours! :)



Good afternoon laughing_cloud , Yes Claire is my name :-). You are absolutely right when you say that we would like to have a stronge man beside us. And James Bond is this man. Confident (I´m Bond..James Bond, I´m the man with a big "M," charismatic, brave and he has class. We, the women, are brave and close to us we need a strong man. I wish you a wonderful day, Claire

Quoting Dakota35:

I have a friend that his dad told him to not say anything. His words were "Son don't say anything and people will not know you are dumb". So be careful with men that are silent.


There are many ways to express emotions and feelings without opening the mouth.. The eyes speak... a message on a card with flowers can say a lot... It´s not difficult to create a mysterious atmosphere and to be a good man.. A man must know how to manage the silence. James Bond is the stereotype of the man who knows very well how to manage the silence and how to create a mysterious atmosphere around him.

test


Sorry, may I ask why do you do your test here? Is it a sort of checking or what?

That's true, and that's a pity! Personally, I like men who don't make promises, they just fulfil them. But they are in a short supply :) OR high demand, as one of my exbf liked to repeat.

Quoting onedayinparis:

Good evening laughing_cloud , I was thinking about the difference between us and James Bond.. About the differences and the resemblances between Amélie Poulain and James Bond.. Like him she uses codes to be understood, she does not speak too much , she has a lot of charm.. But the differences are importants : she wants to save the world .. She appreciates the small pleasures of the life. She loves only one man and she is not ashamed to cry.. And in the end she is happy... And James Bond is still alone.. I wish you a very good night,

Quoting onedayinparis:

Good evening , You made an excellent profile of James Bond. Yes we love him ;).. He seems intelligent.. We spend hours to try to understand his strange dialogues, to interpret his silences...Instead of understanding why he is a criminal.. He knows how to manipulate our curiosity and he never says to us everything to maintain us in this mysterious atmosphere which makes him charming and confuses us... And we love mysterious men .. I wish you a good night


Thank you, onedayinparis! We DO love 'mysterious' men... Those who have nothing to say. :)
