Men certainly have interesting expectations of women. Each guy finds different traits attractive. And even though you should never have that urge to change yourself for a guy (or anyone), there’s always small things you can do to attract the guy that you’ve been eyeing at school or the office for a while now. You might already be doing some of these things and never even knew how attractive guys find it.
I discussed this topic with a few of my guy friends and male colleagues and they provided me with 10 things they find attractive. I specifically encouraged them to point out aspects that is not circled around physical appearances.
1. Be Independent
The ability to be independent is something that not everyone possesses. It can mean even the smallest thing such as getting a coffee by yourself. Not relying on other people to bring you happiness is extremely attractive — living your own life.
2. Hang Out With Friends
All of the guys I spoke to said a girl or a group of girls having fun always catches their attention no matter where he is.
3. Intelligence Is Key
No man wants a woman that cannot flex her mental muscles. Never be just a a one subject gal. If you’re smart, show it off. Somewhere along the road girls got this idea that they need to dumb themselves down to impress a guy, or that guys feel intimidated to date a girl who’s a know it all. This is not true! Your intelligence will always be a turn on for guys.
4. Put Down The Phone
Not being glued to a piece of technology could do you wonders girls. Perhaps it will make you realize that there is a living breathing person in close proximity trying to interact with you. Even though he finds your puppy filter Snapchat adorable, he will probably find it more attractive if you actually pay attention to him.
5. Adventurous & Open-Minded
Guys love a girl who likes having fun. Let your hair down and have fun now and then. Also, don’t be opposed to trying new things — go to that dive bar he loves, learn to surf, try the weird food on the menu.
6. Less Makeup
It might have taken them a while, but guys have caught on with the art of makeup, and they know when you overdo it. This is going to sound crazy, but it really scares guys knowing that you could look completely different when all that makeup comes off.
7. Have A Sense Of Humor
You don’t need to be a stand up comedian to have a sense of humor. Just enjoy the little things in life and don’t take yourself too seriously. A sense of humor is a highly desirable trait in a potential romantic partner.
8. Smile More
Smile, and you can easily light up a guy’s mind with it! Guys are suckers for girly laughter and sweet smiles.
9. Groom Yourself
Grooming is defined as brushing or cleaning. So when I say groom yourself this doesn’t mean you need the nicest french manicure and perfectly done ponytail. It just means taking care of yourself — things like good grooming, clean hair, nice fitting and quality clothing, good posture, and healthy weight.
10. Be Outspoken
Don’t be afraid to say what you’re thinking. Guys find a girl’s confidence an extremely sexy trait. The way you carry yourself around a guy or the way you talk to him confidently plays a big part in how much you awe him.
