What's his appeal???


Women were supposedly drooling all over him back in the day. Why the hell? He literally looks like a dog!

His music is also really boring and his voice nothing special.

reply

He looked like Kevin Costner with long hair!

People like drippy ballads, same reason Celine Dion sold a bucket load.

reply

Yeah, they liked his drippy songs so that made him attractive to them.

They really took the P out of him on 2 1/2 Men.

reply

Kevin Costner, another supposed "hunk" I don't get!

At least Céline had a couple of decent songs and nobody's swooning over her.

reply

At least Costner never sung ballads! He just appeared in videos of them. 🤔

reply

Ah man, be careful of what you write on the internet! What if he reads this and he's up for a challenge!?!

reply

Costner covers Bolton! That's an entire album right there.

reply

You better watch out, buddy.😑

reply

To me he always sounded like he was in a lot of pain. All of that anguished screeching.

reply

He has a great voice and some really good songs.

reply

GREAT voice? REALLY good songs? Yikes, I've really got to greatly disagree with you there.

reply

He is one of my top 5 favourite male vocalists.

reply

It's nice that he has at least one fan.👍

reply

HE HAS MILLIONS OF FANS...YOU JST ARENT ONE THEM...THATS COOL...YOUR INSISTANCE THAT NOBODY DOES/SHOULD LIKE HIM IS VERY ONE SIDED AND KIND OF PETTY.

reply

Lol, apparently you're looking for a fight again. Which is curious after the thread you posted on GD.

I didn't insist on anything, I clearly presented my opinion as merely an opinion.

reply

ALLABY NAILED IT...DUDE IS A TALENTED SINGER WHO RELEASED MANY GREAT SONGS...HIS STYLE ISNT FOR EVERYONE,BUT ANYONE WHO REFUSES TO RECOGNIZE THAT HE IS TALENTED ISNT BEING 100% TRUTHFUL.

reply

100% truthful here. I find his songs absolutely boring. And his voice is nothing special, it's too raspy and dramatic for my taste.

But as you can read, I mostly focused on his supposed attractiveness to women.

reply

IM NOT INTO DONGS,SO I CANT SPEAK ON HIS ATTRACTVENESS...HE IS VERY TALENTED THOUGH.GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR TOO.

reply

"IM NOT INTO DONGS"

Why, that's not very openminded, Kowalski!

reply

MY BAD...ALLOW ME TO ALTER THAT FOR YOU....

"IM NOT INTO DONGS,ANYMORE"

I MADE MY CHOICE AND I HAVE NO REGRETS.

reply

Dongs have millions of fans...you just aren't one of them...

reply

OH...IM A FAN...I JUST DONT WANT TO PLAY WITH THEM ANYMORE.

reply

At what age do women stop wanting to play with dongs? (And why?)

reply

ACCORDING TO MY WIFE?...A MONTH AFTER WE MET.🙂

reply

Are you male or female?

reply

MALE.

reply

That is dumb as shit. So you can't tell at all what a woman would find attractive? If I put Brad Pitt 20 years ago and Donald Trump next to each other you'd be entirely clueless on who is better looking?
When you look at yourself in the mirror, how can you know if you look good or not?
It's not completely arbitrary. That attitude comes from some immature homophobia or something.
Bolton has very masculine chiseled features, strong chin, powerful neck, squinty eyes, clearly in shape.
And a fantastic voice.

reply

YOU SEEM TO THINK ALL WOMEN HAVE A SINGLE SET OF LIKES IN MEN....THATS VERY CHILDISH.


JUST SO AS WE ARE CLEAR...IVE HAD A PENIS IN MY MOUTH...IM NOT GAY,BECAUSE I KNOW IM NOT...YOUR POST SAYS A LOT ABOUT WHAT YOU DONT UNDERSTAND THOUGH.

reply

Looks are subjective yes. But only to an extent. Even if you're personally not attracted to, say Rihanna, you can probably still tell she's considered attractive by a majority.

reply

SURE...BUT MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ARE BASELINE ATTRACTIVE...WHAT TAKES IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL FOR PEOPLE IS INDEFINABLE AND DIFFERS EXTREMELY FROM ONE PERSON TO THE NEXT.

reply

I'm a woman and I find none of those feateres in Bolton attractive. And I'm just not a fan of his voice, perhaps if he'd choose to sing in a different genre.

reply

He's like having Fabio come to life off your romance cover and serenade you with his dulcet tones. I don't understand not wanting that.

reply

Good lord, I definitely don't want Fabio!!!🤣🤣🤣

reply

more for me I guess.

reply

Have fun! But try not to go on any rollercoaster on your first date!👍

reply

You owe me a new keyboard, it's full of barf!

reply

MB has a strong and soulful voice. And he sings with passion. I’m not sure when or why he became a punchline, and it’s a shame. He’s clearly talented...he doesn’t seem to be arrogant...he has a good sense of humor about himself...and you never read any bad press about him. I can see how all of that can be pretty attractive. There’s certainly nothing negative in there.

reply

His silky flowing long blonde fabulous hair.

He's Thor before Thor was cool.

reply

"His silky flowing long blonde fabulous hair."

Maybe Fabio had hair like that, but Bolton's hair looked like that of a scarecrow.

reply

Who's Fabio?

reply

Some dude with silky flowing long blonde fabulous hair.

reply

That's Michael Bolton right there.

reply

No man, like I said, he looks like a dog or a scarecrow.

This is the guy who looks like an uncool Thor:

reply

Lol.

Seriously tho'. It's the hair, I say. When Bolton cut his hair short, his popularity diminished. Kinda like Samson.

reply

The Felicity effect.

reply

I dun geddit. From wikipedia:

The Felicity effect is an effect observed during acoustic emission in a structure undergoing repeated mechanical loading.

It negates the effect of emission silence in the structure that is often observed from the related Kaiser effect at high loads. A material demonstrating the Felicity effect gives off acoustic emission at a lower load than one previously reached in an increasing load cycle regime.

reply

Yeah, I'm also too stupid to get science. I'm talking about the tv show from the 90s.

reply

His appeal was zero. Too many women want to pursue an unattainable fantasy because it’s SAFE. No chance of real EMOTIONAL intimacy and subsequent heartache.
