These Are The Traits Men Find Most Attractive In Women

By Nick Hadji 1 year ago

1. Caring Nature - looking after him!

Image source Helpguide.orgMen and women are instinctively attracted to people who would potentially look out for them if something were to happen further into the future. Most women are born with the nurturing instinct already but not many show it.  This obvious trait will keep a guy interested.Original content sourced from

2. Calmness - not being over-impulsive or dramatic

Image source Alpha Beta PieWhilst females tend to be drama queens at some time or other and guys are prepared for this, having a calm nature and being able to talk through decisions in a relaxed manner is a sure sign to keep that member of the opposite sex interested. It's also good in the art of communication.

3. Loyalty - he wants to gather those points!

Image source InspireNo one on this planet wants to be betrayed and when a man meets a woman, he will look at the way she acts and treats those close to her.  If she speaks badly about her friends to him, behind their backs, then loyalty is not high on her agenda an she won't be high on his!

4. Genuine - the real deal

Image source Business InsiderBecause of the way of the world as it is, it's easy to stick up a picture of ourselves on social media and write whatever we think is attractive to others.  A real man is looking for a genuine woman which is one of the most attractive qualities he could find to make his perfect match.

5. Intelligence - you don't have to have a degree

Image source Daily ExpressThere is a saying that beauty is only skin deep.  If there's not much going on behind that pretty girl's face, the guy may well lose interest.  He doesn't want to necessarily speak about politics but a conversation about the showbiz section of 'Mail Online' might not cut it for him.  Placing a value on education bodes well for a future, maybe with kids.

6. Maturity - nothing to do with age

Image source HealthlineMaturity has nothing to do with the age of a person.  Don't be puzzled by this statement. Mental and emotional maturity is a quality many man  are looking for because no one has time to date a childish woman if they are seriously looking to settle down with her.

7. Cleanliness - it's what's under the make-up

Image source: MetroBeauty is much more than make-up and the latest hairstyle.  Men find women much more attractive when they are well groomed and smell nice.  The scent of clean hair and fresh moisturiser on the skin goes far beyond a painted face and think it looks even sexier.

8. Friendliness - being comfortable around others

Image source FreepikIf you ask a man to list the reasons why he loves his wife or partner, one of his responses may be about how she makes friends easily and how she treats everyone with kindness and respect.  Humility is a very attractive quality and goes far in a man's quest for the perfect woman.

9. Romantic - being spontaneous

Image source Daily MailIt makes complete sense that both men and woman are looking for a partner who is at least a little bit romantic.  It's so nice to feel like that spark is always there, even with small gestures such as booking a table at a favourite restaurant or buying your guy the rum truffles he adores!

10. Punctuality - give or take a second!

Image source RedditOnly joking about being so precise but nobody likes to be kept waiting and if you're standing by the door with your shoes on while your lady is still in the shower, it's annoying.   While it's no big deal, it goes back to respecting the other person and their feelings.

11. Compassionate - thinking about others

Image source ATDIt's easy to fall into the habit of wanting more or being demanding.  When a woman concentrates on her own needs, she can forget to understand her partner.  He may be quiet for a reason and if she doesn't pick up on it, he isn't going to feel supported, especially if he is always there for her.

12. His Mother's Traits - makes him feel secure

Image source River 105A research study looked at how likely men (and women) are to be attracted to certain eye and hair colours in their chosen partners and they found that the men preferred the colour that was the same as their mothers.  Guys were shown to be attracted to a woman who reminded them of their mums.

13. Sense Of Humour - appreciating HIS jokes!

Image source Better HelpThe men surveyed didn't rate funny women as being any more desirable than a less humorous one but what they did find very attractive in a female was if the woman laughed at their jokes.  It made them feel appreciated and special and showed the woman cared.

14. Head Tilt - but only if it's the right way!

Image source QuoraAccording to two Australian researchers, one thing that a man surprisingly found attractive in a female was the way in which she tilted her head.  It showed she was concentrating on him and listening to every word.  Men said it looked 'sexy without trying'.

15. Adventurous - open to risks

Image source StylistThis one goes both ways, and it turns out that both men and women find certain risk-taking behaviours very attractive when searching for a potential match made in heaven. A male seems to love a girl who is open to doing something out of her comfort zone.  It makes her interesting and wanting to please.

16. High Pitched Voice - but don't break a window!

Image source RedditYou would think that a husky voice would be a sexy one but studies have shown that what men are really attracted to is actually a higher-pitched voice. According to one study by University College London, high-pitched voices were found to be almost universally more attractive to men as they thought this might relate to a good looking woman with a small frame.

17. Ovulation - got that certain glow

Image source QuoraThe science behind this one is quite fascinating.  Ovulation might not be a specific trait but it is linked to some traits that men find attractive. According to a study in the journal Hormones and Behaviour, men were more likely to rate women as being the most attractive during the most fertile point in their menstrual cycle.

18. Waist To Hip Ratio - yes, it really is a thing!

Image source BellatoryWhen it comes to overall body shapes, we always hear that it's the hourglass figure that's most attractive like Marilyn Monroe.  It is the personal taste of the man what type of woman he finds most sexy but research showed this was a definite tick for lots of guys.

19. Average features - means more than average woman

Image source FStoppersRegarding facial features, there are certain characteristics that seems to hold universal appeal. According to the book 'Falling in Love: Why We Choose the Lovers We Choose',  studies revealed a preference for women with big eyes, small noses.  Another study showed high cheekbones and a big smile did it for them.

20. Bust Line - bigger isn't always better

Image source ModernMomIt's often thought that bigger is better when it comes to breasts but that isn't necessarily the case.  Men are like Goldilocks when it comes to busts and don't like them too big or too small!  Instead, women with the most attractive bodies are found to be those who have medium sized breasts.

21. Good Hair - soft and silky does it

Image source Wallpaper FlareA 2013 survey conducted by dating website showed that men notice a woman's hair, even before her face!  A whopping 80% agreed with this and it was a surprising result for the woman who never expected this to be the case.  The guys preferred long locks, worn loosely over the shoulders, so there you go!

23. Long Legs - even with a short body!

Image source FreepikWhen it comes to legs, it's all about the length.  Some men prefer a short girl in high heels, giving the impression of long legs whilst a fewer number of guys went for very tall girls with legs that went on for ever!  A pair of stockings on them got the thumbs up from 97%!

24. Shorter than him - makes him feel protective

Image source CosmopolitanTaller people tend to be viewed as more authoritative and successful.  This dates back to ancient times where prehistoric tombs found skeletons of taller people were placed in crypts while the shorter people were buried in mass graves.  Many men prefer a shorter female so they can feel protective over her.

25. Right Kind Of Walk - a swinging gait is good!

Image source Wisdom PhysioOn the list of what a man finds attractive in a woman is the way she walks.  Every female walks differently but a slight 'swing' is preferable as the guy can spot the girl from a distance and looks forward to meeting her nose to nose!  With her long, loose hair (as previously mentioned) she's a walking angel!

26. The Colour Red - passion sizzler

Image source Today ShowOne of the stranger things that attracts men to the opposite sex is the colour red!  The colour has long been associated with passion and love and it is considered an alluring hue.  It is thought that men subconsciously think of a woman's lady parts when they see red.

27. Perfect Smile - even if teeth aren't perfect

Image source QuoraIt's no big news to learn that a smile can make a man go weak at the knees - not just a small grin but a big, open smile is a very attractive trait.  Apparently, it gives the impression that the woman is comfortable and confident in her own skin as well as being open to commit to a relationship.

28. Small Feet - associated with femininity

Image source FreepikSmall feet have been associated with beauty and femininity for centuries. The Chinese practice of foot binding goes back to the 10th century and young girls would have their feet broken and bound to keep their feet tiny.  Guys are attracted to petite women with small feet but, obviously, it wouldn't be a make or break if she's a size 7.

29. Being A Dog Owner - ability to commit

Image source FreepikMen who have pets of their own want their date to love animals as much as they do. If they both have dogs, then it's all going in the right direction.  If both are cat owners, this also works well but doesn't have the same impact, probably because cats are more independent.

30. Having A Certain Smell - hormone related

Image source Discover MagazineOne trait that men are attracted to is one that they aren't even aware of.  They can be drawn to the scent of a female who has high oestrogen and low progesterone levels. Besides this smell, a light perfume, nothing too strong, will keep him wanting to be close to the woman.

31. Self-Confidence

Image Source / DR. TC NORTHConfidence is a huge turn on for anyone, really, and especially for men looking for a woman. A woman who is confident in herself - but not arrogant - shows that she knows who she is and what she likes. A woman who isn't afraid to be herself and also reveal what makes her unique.

32. Independent Woman

Image Source / GSP - BandcampIndependence is just as attractive as confidence. It shows that you don't need a man to depend on and that you can take care of yourself, which means a man can be secure in the knowledge you won't rely on them for everything. A successful relationship can be more likely if you're both self-sufficient, too.

33. A Good Heart - Kindness

Image Source / BBCKind and caring people are more attractive, and a woman who is kind to those around her - including her partner - and also generous with her time will be more appreciated by a man. It's a very endearing quality to care for others and do what you can for them.

34. A Little Bit Mysterious

Image Source / TV TropesThis is a little different than playing hard to get - it can just be about leaving things open to be learned about you. If you still have mystery about you and a man is interested, he will enjoy cracking the mystery and delving deeper into who you are, and what there is to learn about you.

35. A Passion For Life

Image Source / Small RevolutionBeing excited about life, grateful for every day and eager to explore what life has to offer are all attractive qualities, especially for a partner, because it means something exciting for your potential life together. Being eager about every day and open to exploring new things is a great quality.

36. An Optimistic Attitude

Image Source / Verywell MindNegativity is a part of life, and of course you can't be positive all the time. But if you're negative about every single thing, 24/7, it's going to be a bummer for your partner, which is why men can be attracted to more positive and optimistic women. Trying to look on the bright side is a plus.

37. A Good Listener

Image Source / Education ExecutiveIt's not only about listening, but it's about being interested in what you're hearing, wanting to learn more and giving your undivided attention. Attentiveness and concern with what he has to say will be an attractive quality and will make it more likely he wants to be around you!

38. Sex Appeal

Image Source / eHarmonyThere isn't one accepted way to be sexy, because every man will have a different idea of what 'sexy' is. It's not necessarily curves and tight clothes - sexy can also be being flirty, having a way with words, or something that's unique to you like the particular way you push your hair from your face.

39. Being In Good Health

Image Source / Wealth of GeeksThis isn't just about your body shape and your looks - being in shape and being healthy is attractive to men because it means you take care of yourself. It doesn't depend on being a plus size, it's more about actually being dangerously overweight or in bad health where you have to worry.

40. Having A Strong Personality

Image Source / Scary MommyA woman speaking her mind and knowing her own opinions and what she stands for is a very attractive quality. It means she's comfortable in who she is and not afraid to let her own personality shine through. Men can be drawn to women with strong personalities.

41. Having A Good Sense Of Style

Image Source / FashionisersObviously what you wear is going to have a huge effect on how attractive you are to others, but also a good sense of style gives off the impression that you put thought into how you look and that you care about looking good, which can be an attractive quality.

42. Traditional Feminine Qualities

Image Source / GoopThis doesn't mean that you have to behave like a shy Victorian maiden, but those traditional feminine qualities like being ladylike, treating people with respect and being kind and gracious can all be a plus in the eyes of a man with traditional values.

43. Being Supportive

Image Source / AskMenBeing a very supportive partner is always a plus, because it means they can depend on you, trust in you and feel like it's a true partnership. If you're a supportive person who's always going to have your man's back, that's a huge plus.

44. A Woman Who Is Loving

Image Source / BetterHelpMaking someone feel loved and appreciated is always important, in any relationship, whether friends, family or romantic. A woman who can make a man feel like he's truly loved is going to make him appreciate every second he's with her.

45. Commitment To Family And Friends

Image Source / families, LoveToKnowThe traits a man can find attractive don't have to be directly to him. The commitment and loyalty a woman also shows to other loved ones, like family and friends, can also be attractive because it shows the man that she cares about those she loves and will always stick by them.

46. A Woman Who Can Cook

Image Source / Eat Smart, Move More, Weigh LessFirst off - no, this definitely isn't about the horrid stereotype of a woman belonging in the kitchen because no thanks. This is more just the bonus of a woman who is a great cook and enjoys cooking, because a man knows he'll be able to enjoy a good homecooked meal or two.

47. Red Lips

Image Source / AllureWe've already mentioned about the colour red being a huge plus for a guy, but red lips in particular can offer something specifically appealing. All because of the lips being where a man would focus for someone he likes, combining that with the alluring colour of red is a double whammy!

48. Putting That Feminine Touch Into Everything

Image Source / HomeditWomen are skilled at making anything and everything look beauty, especially when it comes to decorating the home or making a space cosy - and men love that, because they know they can't do it to that level themselves.

49. Good Posture

Image Source / Performance TherapiesPeople with good posture just look more appealing, literally because they're body is looking in better physical condition! Good posture can give out more confidence, make a woman look taller and also reflect that she looks after herself, too.

50. An Equal Partnership

Image Source / Rush University Medical CenterThere's something very attractive of knowing that you're going to be in equal partnership with someone. That this woman is someone you could consider an equal, and would do so for you in return. That you can depend on each other and always be a team!
