When I think of Mad Men, one word comes to mind: Don Draper, or rather a figure. I have been addicted to MM lately and the sole reason has to be that I’m so in love with Don Draper. How coincidental that Don Draper can also be abbreviated to DD, just like MM (lol, who cares christina?!)!
There is just something about the way he walks, the way he talks and how his rare laugh feels so rewarding and makes you feel like Life is still good (too much?). DD is my idea of a masculinity and I love men that looks capable and strong. It’s not that I like to be dominated, it just that I like to feel like my man can take control of things when I get too wild, or crazy. But thats not to say that I love DD character, because I don’t. John Hamm described DD as being a really unhappy, and a flawed character and obviously he’s a cheater and is responsible for many deaths. But I like his charming persona and his powerful presence. Also how he doesn’t talk much but when he does he shuts everyone else up lol. I def. need a Don Draper in my life (personality wise). Nowadays guys aren’t like that at all (or at least the guys in my life :/). I really miss watching this show. I’m sad that I have popped my MM virginity :(, but I guess I’ll just have to wait for the new seasons.
I know I said that DD was the sole reason that I love MM but I was just exaggerating. I love a lot of things about this show such as the elegance of Betty Draper, the fashion, the decor………everything. Oh oh oh how can I forget Roger Sterling. Love this man. He’s so funny and kinda sexy (even with that white hair).
Favorite Roger moment: “kiss ass” hahah. too cute
