15 things women are attracted to in men

by | Meeting People, Moving On

May 11, 2024

Ever wonder what women really love about men? Every man wonders sometimes. And though it seems like a very difficult question to answer, we’ve been able to put up a list of 15 things that women are very attracted to in men.

1. Facial looks and features

We are also quite attracted to a person’s facial features.  

During the first contact or interaction with a man, women do pay a lot of attention to how his face looks. 

They judge his face based on symmetry and neatness. 

Facial symmetry is big thing to some women. They tend to look at how aligned his face is, and how his features come together to make him look very masculine and presentable. 

Bear in mind that facial features also include his beard. Neatly trimmed beard are very attractive to women.  

Women tend to like a nearly trimmed beard over a full, tattered beard and tend to prefer a tattered beard over a smooth facial area. 

2. Body physique and height

Women are also very attracted to a person’s body physique and height. 

On average, women like very tall men—and tall begins from at least 5’11. 

They also tend to like men who have an athletic build. 

Bear in mind that an athletic build doesn’t necessarily have to be a muscular build—although a muscular build can be more attractive. 

An athletic build is just a build that isn’t fat or morbidly obese. 

If perhaps you’re a tall guy who has an athletic build, you’re definitely going to attract a lot of women. 

3. Voice texture

A person’s voice is such a strong indicator of their masculinity. 

And so women are very attracted to men who have deeper voices. 

On average, men who have deeper voices are able to get more women than men whose voices are rather light. 

Women describe a very deep voice as either mesmerizing or just very arousing.

Elena told us that she loves it when a man has a deep voice—and that it’s such a pleasure to hear him speak because the depth of his voice kind of triggers her feminine side.

4. Dress and style

Women also pay a lot of attention to dress and style. 

Dress, style, and fashion sense play a huge part in attraction. 

The kind of clothes that attract a woman depends on the area she is in and the kind of men she meets.  

In an official setting, women are very attracted to men who dress in a rather official way. 

This includes a good trouser, a good shirt, and maybe a tie. 

If it’s in the casual setting, women it when men are able to put out some casual wears that can also command a form of respect. 

The man may just put on a pair of jeans and a shirt, and maybe some sneakers. But if his dressing is able to command respect and desire, then women are going to be very attracted to him. 

5. Charisma

I like to say that it is charisma that makes a man. 

Women are very particular about charisma. They tend to either praise it or greatly condemn it. 

If a woman meets a man whose charisma is not good enough, she’s going to be mostly displeased by the mere fact that she’s around that man. 

Nothing the man does around her is going to make sense. 

On the other hand, if a woman meets a man whose charisma is worth it, she’s going to be greatly attracted to him in a way that makes it impossible for the man to ever go wrong.

Men who have cocky charisma are usually able to pull in more women than men whose charisma is quite innocent. 

6. Humor

Women like very cocky and very funny men. 

The man who is able to pull off humor is going to attract so many women. 

This is because humor is a social device that is very helpful during social interactions and can point toward the degree of a person‘s intellect. 

Most people who are great with humor are often very intelligent people. 

Intelligence is attractive, even to women. And so humor becomes just as attractive.

7. Stoicism

Stoicism is the ability to remain unbothered by what is happening in the outside world. 

The way to put it is that stoicism is the ability to remain calm and firm even in the face of adversity.

It points towards great emotional strength, and as we already know, women are very attracted to strength. 

A man who is stoic is going to be very attractive to almost every woman he meets, especially if he’s able to interact with her on an emotional basis. 

Because he is stoic and largely unbothered, he’s going to effortlessly pass all her tests on his masculinity. 

8. Ability to express oneself

The ability to express oneself is a commonly overvalued ability, but the truth remains that being able to express yourself is a very important marker in the social hierarchy. 

As you should know, women judge men based on three variables, one of which is their social hierarchy. 

If the man has talent or skills that point towards the fact that he is higher up on the social hierarchy, women are going to be very attractive to him.  

9. Storytelling

Yes, storytelling as well. Women like a good time, and they love it so much when the man is able to give them that good time. 

Men who are able to tell stories are the best people to be around, and women know this. So, they are attracted to men who are able to tell good stories.  

10. Leadership

Women are very attracted to leadership qualities as well. 

If a man proves himself able to lead, whether he’s leading the woman or the people around him, then he becomes very attractive to most women. 

A man who leads is a man who is able to make a woman comfortable. 

Women don’t like being the ones who take initiative, especially in a relationship setting. 

Women don’t like to be controlled. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m just saying they like to lovingly follow their man’s directives. 

For example, a woman would not want to pick the venue for a date. She would rather her man lead her

She would rather he tells her: “I think we should go out tomorrow, and I want us to go out to this venue. I’ll come and pick you up by this time.” 

That is more attractive to her, and that tells her that the man will make her life more comfortable.

11. Family love

Traditional women really love it when a man is family oriented. 

A man who is family-oriented is a man who thinks and acts in a way that makes a woman believe that he loves to be in a family and he loves to raise his family of his own. 

A family oriented is, by just looking at him, going to be a safer place for the traditional woman. 

She’s going to feel like she has a purpose around him because the purpose driven nature of his life is also going to keep her life running. 

12. Independence

Women don’t like a man who depends on other people, and you should bear in mind that other people include even her. 

Women want a man who can make his own choices and do what he wants because he has the ability to sustain his own lifestyle. 

It is this inability to be independent that drives a lot of women away from nice guys because nice guys often depend a lot on a woman, especially for their own emotional security. 

They have to seek the woman’s approval to feel a certain way, and this is very unattractive. It can make a woman who had even decided to go ahead with a relationship with you pull back. 

13. Money and comfort

Money is also very attractive to women. That’s just the truth. A lot of people tend to ignore this or try to suppress its importance because they don’t want to make women look like gold diggers. 

But the truth remains that wanting or loving money doesn’t make one a gold digger

Wanting money and comfort is a natural thing, especially for women. 

Women are driven towards comfort and would mostly go where comfort is promised. 

Luckily, guys who have a lot of money are often able to make women feel very comfortable. 

14. Fame

Women are very attracted to fame as well. This is because, like I said earlier, fame is a pointer to a man’s social hierarchy. 

A man who is famous is very high up there in the social hierarchy. 

An ability to be socially aware and socially known is a currency on its own. 

A person social status can often point the financial status.  

15. Genuineness

The truth remains that being genuine is also very attractive. Women don’t like men who are likely to fake a lifestyle. 

They love and are attracted to men who are able to be themselves, whether or not they fit into a presumed category of men.

Women are very attracted to pointers of social class.
