Psychology: What men find attractive in women

When you first met someone, what is the first thing you notice? We bet your answer will be different from your sister, or mother or friend. It may be you notice some physical trait or the sound of his voice or the way he handles a conversation. The answer will vary depending on the person making the acquaintance. When it comes to attraction between men and women, things are not different.
What attracts men to women psychologically, physically, emotionally will depend on what that specific man is searching for, or what after some consideration, makes a "click". Physical attraction is important (sometimes that's all it takes), but there are other traits or characteristics that play a very big roll on what men find attractive in women. 

There are some universal traits that are very attractive to men like happiness or kindness or a sense of humor. It's hard to pinpoint just one characteristic, sometimes it's the whole package (all good and bad) that makes you attractive to men.

Psychological characteristics play an important role when it comes to attraction between men and women. So if you're wondering what will attract men to women, psychologically, stick around, we'll give you a couple of clues, Maybe one of them could help you make a click with that guy that you have your eye on.

1. Self-confidence

Men like women that are comfortable with who they are (physically, emotionally, intellectually), some found that very sexy. They feel attracted to women who own everything they are, who are Ok with their imperfections and their curves.

Self- confidence can be display in your every day with all you do. For example, when you're having a conversation with him, don't just nod and laugh at what he says, challenge him, make bold statements that can help drive the conversation, make him think. Men are attracted to confident women, next time you enter a room, walk with your head high and own it.

2. A positive attitude

It's easy to go to your dark places if you focus solely on the bad things that happen near you and around the world, but this won't help you with him. Men like women that can maintain a positive attitude towards life, we don't mean that you have to be all laughs and giggles all the time, just try to be positive about the outcomes. Debbie Downers are not attractive, men are attracted to women who are uplifting and kind.

3. Attentiveness

Men are attracted to women who are good listeners and show empathy. For example, you're having a conversation with a guy and he gets excited when he starts talking about a project he's going to start, if you share his excitement and encourage him to keep talking about it, he's going to be very attracted to you. 

You're showing him you know how to listen, that you're attentive and that you empathize with his life.

4. Modesty

We know you're awesome, but for that awesomeness to show you need to leave something to mystery, that will intrigue him and he'll find you more attractive. Don't "blow your own trumpet", that's going to get you the opposite of attraction, you'll send him away.

What men find attractive in a woman physically

Men are visual creatures, this is a fact of life. It always has been this way and we're pretty sure that's not going to change. Any time you enter a room where there's a guy, he's going to check you out, but have you wonder what physical characteristics they find most attractive in women? While most guys are pretty easy to please, there are certain physical traits that get their attention. 

Science has been able to provide some answers to this question. It turns out that every time a guy gives you a once-over, he's performing a reproductive assessment. He's not conscious about this assessment, he does it subconsciously, he instinctively recognizes some features that make you more attractive to him because he's thinking... "she can have my babies".

What are the physical traits that will make you more attractive to men then? Keep reading and find out.

5. Your waist and hip ratio

As Shakira sings, "hips don't lie". Wide hips are a physical attribute that men find very attractive. This is backed by science too, waist and hips are associated or related to childbirth, so it makes men think (subconsciously), that wide hips are better for delivering babies (especially with a ratio of 7:10). 

A wide hip usually means a wide behind, and men have been staring a women's behinds for centuries, so there's no news there. What you may find interesting is that a larger behind is also a sign of good health.

6.Your breasts

Shocker, right? Men like breasts, they like looking at them, but the good news is that you don't need to have large breasts to get their attention. Men find big breasts attractive but in combination with a narrow waist. Not all women are well endowed in that area and most men like average to slightly smaller breasts, so as long as yours are pretty and still perky, you're good. smiley

7. Your hair

Men are attracted to thick and healthy hair because it's associated with health, youth, and vitality.  You add long to the list and you've got some very powerful sex stimulant A well-styled hair can have a man on his knees too. So ladies, start taking good care of your hair (eat well, treat it right and visit the salon on a regular basis), it can be your kryptonite to his Superman. wink

8. Your legs

The longer the better, with legs it's all about the length, besides long legs are a sign of good health. That is why high heels are so popular, men are attracted to women who have a longer leg-to-body ratio (short women with long legs), some women like Scarlett Johanson falls into that category, but if you don't have that leg-body ratio, high heels are your best friend.
