I'm writing from the point of view of a male character. As a female, I find this hard, but ultimately achievable. What I am finding very tough is how I go about describing the other (generally male) characters my MC meets without him coming off as romantically interested in them. It's fine when he meets a hot lady; she's tall, boobs, got it. That I can work with. I've always described every important person my characters meet for a roughly two or three lines. Here's an example: "[He] was a large man with a slab of skin for a stomach that toed the line between muscle and fat. White, though his face was a leathery red from the boiling sun and hardened into permanent wrinkles. A thick golden chain hung around his neck, hidden under his bulky suit. An oily slick of hair was combed across his skull, brown and thin. His eyes were small, wet and watery like two spots of lechery awfulness." This is fine. I'm happy with this. It's when the character is good looking that I struggle. I feel like I'm coming across like some sort of 1990's erotic romance novel. "His eyes were so green, blah blah, piercing into my soul, etc. etc." Help!
