It is often said that beauty is skin deep, but we can’t deny the fact that the first impression does play a significant role. It is also truth that between men and women, it is not always about beauty and looks – it is much more than that. But what exactly do men find attractive in women?

Fortunately, there have been a lot of studies conducted on this topic and they have given us plenty of insights on what men find attractive in women! Surprisingly, sometimes it is not even intentional – there are some unexpected things that attract men towards women. But no guessing anymore, let’s see what it’s all about!


What Do Men Find Attractive In Women


PART 1: What Do Men Find Attractive In Women Behaviour


Just the Perfect Sense of Humor


In about everyone’s opinion, the sense of humor is among the most common things that men find attractive in women. But, according to studies, men and women have different choices and preferences when it comes to humor. For women, those men who are funny AND appreciative at the same are considered perfect. Whereas for men, the woman doesn’t need to be funny – instead she should just be able to respond to their jokes and thus make them feel good (hmm…).


Risk-Taking Behaviors


This goes both ways – both men and women like risk-taking behaviors. Men find it attractive when a woman is ready to accompany them and enjoy adventures and trips together. These activities can include mountain climbing, whitewater rafting, skiing, and any other outdoor stuff. Even if you don’t know how to do any of these, men would love to teach their woman these things, but you must be confident enough to take the risk!




While men do like women to depend on them for certain things, studies have shown that men find attractive when women are independent and not needy. They might like you to ask them for their help, but being needy turns them off. They like it when women can make their own decisions, and manage their fears or insecurities.




Personality does matter after all. Men won’t like you if you are rude and straightforward for no reason… Instead, men do find attractive women who are kind and intelligent. A woman who knows how to deal with a situation smoothly and not act rude is always appreciated by men. Kindness gives them the heads up about a good relationship.


PART 2: What Do Men Find Attractive In Women Looks


Mature Appearance


It is annoying and worrying when you see those grey hair popping out of your head, and you suddenly think that you look old… But, surprise surprise! According to some studies, men do actually like the mature look of a woman. The study showed that men who were born with older mothers (above 30) were more likely to choose a mature and a bit older woman for a long-term relationship. However, that might not be the case in short-term relationships.


Pretty Hair


There is no denying that hair is one of those things that men do find attractive. Sometimes, hair is the first thing that men notice in a woman. However, a survey was conducted on women where 71% of them said that they don’t expect their potential love interest to notice their hair. But men say that they do like hair (especially when they are down, whereas some prefer messy buns). Also, men are easily turned off by the hair that has too many products in it, is greasy, or died in a very unnatural color.


Red Color


It is their weakness! It might be strange, but men really do like red. This color associate with passion, love, desire, and heat. It was thought that maybe men like this color because it arouses them, but studies have proven otherwise. It is not about the sexual arousal, men just like the color and they can’t just ignore a woman wearing red – it’s so attention-grabbing!

So, ladies, the mystery has unfolded. Now you know what do men find attractive in women, so if you are taking your chances, adopt some of these tips, and see the magic you can bring on this world.
