Why Jim Halpert may be the perfect man...

...and why he deserves his own adjective.

Tom Cruise? No thanks. Brad Pitt? Old news. David Beckham? Nah… I want to marry a Jim.

A few days ago, I decided to watch The Office on the new “watch instantly” feature on Nextflix. I quickly became hooked and emotionally involved with the characters, namely Jim. With each episode, I find Jim more attractive and loveable. But I can’t really figure out why. I mean, he’s a talented salesman, he loves kids, he has a great sense of humor, he’s sensitive, he has the ability to make friends quickly, he’s a clever prankster, and he has the best facial expressions. All great qualities, but there is something irresistible about him that I can’t put my finger on. Some intangible quality that just can’t be put into words… a “Jimness.” A new adjective should really be created for whatever it is that he possesses. But until then, we'll settle for "jimness"... and revel in it.
