Brooks Laich Reveals What's Most 'Attractive' to Him 1 Month After Split“I think kindness is so attractive,” the hockey player, 37, explained during the Monday, June 29, episode of his “How Men Think” podcast. “I think somebody with an open heart is so attractive. And conversely, I think somebody with a close heart that is really fighting hard — that, to me, is so off-putting. It’s very off-putting. I’m like, ‘What is the struggle? What are you fighting against? I’m here to open my heart to you and to be on your team and to be together in this and you’re fighting to keep me out.
Though Laich said that he thinks going up to a month without sex in a relationship is perfectly healthy, he did acknowledge that sometimes an effort has to be made to reignite a spark.
"I think at some point you just have to realize, 'OK, our connection has dissipated a little bit. Let’s intentionally move back into this space and even if we aren’t feeling it... even if it’s not just naturally a pull, like, oh my god, we’re all over each other, let’s create an atmosphere or environment or something where we are making time to be intentional about this,'" he said. "That can spark the natural pull too."
Laich's comments come two months after he andannounced following three years of marriage.
"We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate," the pair toldat the time. "We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward."
