What Men Find Attractive in Women


As a woman, I know what attracts me to a man, but I didn’t know what men found attractive in women until I did some research. Now, I’m not totally clueless to some of the reasons, as I was once single myself, and now my husband shows me some of the reasons he is attracted to me. What I did know is that there was much more than I knew. Some of the traits I found were not surprising to me while others came as a bit of a shock, but in a good way.


  • She is playful. She can let loose and enjoy herself.
  • She is beautiful in her own way. Beauty is defined differently from man to man and standards are all over the map.So beauty has no definite definition, but what they find is beautiful is neither right or wrong.
  • She understands sports. Men love to talk sports, so if a woman understands and can converse with them about it, men are in Heaven.
  • She’s affectionate. She likes to cuddle and get close to her man.
  • She knows how to apologize. When she knows she is in the wrong, she puts pride aside and apologizes.
  • She’s willing to bend the rules. She’ll play hooky to spend some quality time with him or put those chores aside so that they can catch up on their favorite TV show.
  • She’s confident. There is nothing sexier to men than a confident woman.
  • She’s willing to set aside her fear. Instead of letting her fear of something hold her  back, she is willing to set it aside and go forward anyway.
  • She laughs and has a sense of humor.
  • She’s passionate about something. It doesn’t matter so much what she is passionate about, just as long as it’s something.
  • She’s driven. She has goals and is taking the appropriate steps to get there.
  • She’s decisive. She knows what she wants, and she goes for it without much thought.
  • She’s cool around your friends. She can fit in and hold her own around your friends.
  • She has class. She respects herself and presents herself well.
  • She is original. She has an original style and is very much a leader in her own way.
  • She’s loyal. She is with you and you only. Her actions says it all.
  • She’s witty. She is intelligent and educated and can have strike up conversation at the drop of a hat.
  • She’s honest. She can be open with you and tell you things in confidence.
  • She’s adventurous. She likes to try new things and think outside the box.
  • She loves you. She isn’t afraid to own her feelings and tells you exactly how she feels about you.

As a woman, researching and then writing this list was informative and refreshing. To me, it’s great knowing that some men choose not to focus entirely on a woman’s beauty, but a huge array of traits.
