Men 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.

Whilst 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!

No 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

Because 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

There 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

Maturity 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

Beauty 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

If 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

It 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 Reddit

Only 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 ATD

It’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

The 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!

According 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

This 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 Reddit

You 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 Quora

The 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!

20. Bust Line – bigger isn’t always better

It’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 Flare

A 2013 survey conducted by dating website Zoosk.com 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 Freepik

When 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 Cosmopolitan

Taller 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.

On 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

One 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 Quora

It’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 Freepik

Small 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 Freepik

Men 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

One 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.
