“You can be pretty or not, but the moment I discover that you are thoughtful? BOOM… you’re a knockout! I married my smart knockout too.”

“Finally, someone mentions intelligence. That first-sight attraction; it’s going to be physical characteristics, but beyond that their intelligence, ability to have an interesting conversation, and knowledge of the world, will keep me interested.”

Kindness

“I genuinely like being friendly and kind; making people feel comfortable. I don’t know why more people aren’t like that. Noone’s attractive when they’re being a jerk.”

“A cute woman complimented my boots a couple of weeks ago and I instantly imagined a future with her! So, yes to kindness and niceness I guess.!”

Sweet-smelling

“Many girls I found attractive visually; but when I hugged and smelt them, it was always an immediate realization that the chemistry wasn’t there.”

“I would never be attracted to someone if their natural scent turned me off. I have also felt attracted to people I didn’t think were good-looking based on their scent.”

Shyness

“I’m attracted to shy people because I’m shy, like introverts who rarely talk to boys.”

“I’m also attracted to more quiet, introverted people because I’m the same. There’s also something about most people who are quiet; they seem like good listeners, they’re calm, smart, down to earth, and they give off this comforting vibe.”

Confidence

“Drive and confidence are always sexy.”

“I knew this one girl on my bus route, she had terrible teeth, but she had so much confidence; so much so that I didn’t even notice her teeth for 3 years.”

“Confidence trumps all of it for me. Some women just have a presence when they enter a room that demands attention and it’s so attractive. You pick up on it before their looks.”

Nice Smile

“People are much more attractive when they smile, regardless of how crooked their teeth are. Seeing a girl smile, gets me smiling too!”

“It’s amazing how a totally average physique can quickly become much more attractive when the woman in question has a nice-looking smile.”

Beautiful Eyes

“I tell my girlfriend that everything ages, yet beautiful eyes will remain beautiful.”

“I’ve seen old women with gorgeous green eyes and thought “if I were an old man, I’d be into you. So, when I look at women, I immediately check out their eyes and wonder if their eyes will still captivate me as she ages.”

Eye Contact

“Absolutely! I had a gorgeous red head make eye contact with me on the street in San Francisco in 1990. We were walking past each other, and she held my gaze the whole time and I felt like lightning was shooting through me. I swear I passed my soul mate.”

“I am old now, but many years ago; in the 80s and 90s, I perfected the “intense eye contact” thing. 100% agree – men get really into intense eye contact.”

“I like a girl with a smooth liquidation. I want a girl with good dividends. At Citibank we will meet accidentally; we start to talk as she borrows my pen.”

“I played this song at work once and the next day one of my co-workers showed up wearing that. And yes, she was suddenly much more attractive!”

Being Funny

“An article said men who want someone with a ‘good sense of humor’ usually mean that they want the woman to find their jokes funny. I don’t think that’s true; we prefer to find someone who makes us laugh, and who also finds our jokes funny.”

“If a girl has a good sense of humour and can make you laugh, and can take a joke, it makes her more approachable and attractive for sure!”

Vulnerability

“People are so guarded and closed off; being able to have a genuine interaction with someone who is willing to share who they truly are is wildly attractive.”

“That’s what made me fall for my wife so quickly, she was so vulnerable and authentic from the start I couldn’t help but fall for her.”

Listening

“Whenever they listen to the conversation and contribute; no one should just be waiting to talk. Listening and understanding another person’s point is attractive to me.”

“Completely agree with you. Active listening is a rare quality and, often, people are just waiting for their turn to speak. It’s super sexy to be listenedf to.”

Boyish

“Being a tomboy to the point where I’m not sure if she’s straight or not is so hot; unfortunately, this has meant that I’ve fallen for more than one lesbian.”

“I love tomboys too. Met my wife playing hockey.”

“Tomboys are fantastic! It’s easy to fall for someone you can connect with so well.”

Enthusiasm

“Like please tell me excitedly about how colour theory is the reason behind marketing success; I’ll be drooling in a second.”

“As someone who also gets excited when talking about something I’m passionate about, I would say YES.”

Good Posture

“Great posture can make up for a lot of other physical shortcomings.”

“One young woman in my dance class was rather average looking, but when she struck her first pose, every single male eye in the room was riveted to her.”

“As a tango dancer, I totally understand this; posture is everything!”

Freckles

“This always boggles my mind when people say this, including my partner! I have gotten so much stick about having red hair & freckles. Now, it’s apparently in style.”

“It makes any girl instantly cuter and raises their attractiveness by 2 on a scale of 10.”

“Freckles are BEAUTIFUL! I’ve fallen in love just because of freckles.”

Pretty Face

“Even if I notice other physical attributes first, the face is what makes or breaks it. If she has a pretty face, I can overlook a lot.”

“At it can’t look unnatural, or like plastic. I like laughter lines around the eyes too.”

“She has to HAVE an actual face? You wouldn’t date a woman with just a fleshless skull? You, my friend, are shallow!”

Being Attracted To Me

“The most brutally honest male answer yet!”

“Yes, but I first have to find out that she’s attracted to me because, apparently, I can’t tell.”

“So, a 380 lb girl with a moustache would be attractive to you if she finds you attractive?”

Goofiness

“Most women though are so scared of being seen as an idiot or being humiliated they stop just short of actually capitalizing on this.”

My fiancée can change my day with this; she knows I want to be cranky, but her energy is so joyous and silly; it’s hard not to smile. I find silliness super attractive.”

A Love Of Memes

“The thing that all men crave, desire and lust for; a big fat meme folder on her phone.”

“I qualify! But without the folder; just a ton of random screenshots on my phone that I look over and laugh at frequently. For sure; meme appreciation is attractive.”

Nice Hair

“I scrolled through 300 comments, and no one said hair? Nicely styled hair of any variety immediately attracts me to anyone regardless of gender. It shows me that you take your appearance seriously and have a sense of personal style.”

“Hair can really make it or break it, but people don’t think about it.”
