Attraction 101: Men Dish on the Traits that Make Girls Attractive

When it comes to attraction, for many people, physical appearance is often the first thing that we look for. However, it’s important to recognize that there are many other traits that can make a girl attractive or impressive, beyond just her looks. Other attractive qualities like intelligence, confidence, sense of humor, kindness, empathy, and ambition are also important things to look for in a potential mate. In fact, many people find that these non-physical traits are more important than physical appearance in forming a deep and meaningful connection with someone.

A Redditor shared, “Accountability. If she can openly admit when she’s wrong or that she messed up that’s attractive as it shows maturity and ability to judge yourself impartially and it means you are less likely to repeat the mistake. This also means what you feel for her is not only love, it’s respect, which is just as important.”

This user had this to say, “For me, the sexiest thing a woman can do is be calm – not calm as in quiet, as in calm when things goes sideways or something unexpected happens. Having someone who is reliable and stable as a partner is so crucial in life.”

A top liked comment said, “Having a hobby/interest that they are very knowledgeable/passionate about. Even if it’s something super benign like painting nails or baseball, I just love people who can ramble on about their interest- especially if I’m not into it, it’s like peaking into another world.”

Thought Process

A user commented, “A bit of a simple one here, but I love when a girl can sing. My wife claims she can’t can’t carry a tune in a bucket, but when she sings it’s beautiful to my ears. When we have a couple drinks I’ll get my guitar out and can occasionally convince her to sing a few songs with me. It’s one of my favorite things we do.”

Bring Something To The Table
