25 Things That Make a Man Attractive to Women

things that make a man attractive

What do women find most attractive about men? Well, this list of 25 things will tell you everything you need to know about a woman’s likes and dislikes!

Men are sexy beings, especially those model-football player types with chiseled bodies and flawless hair pushed back into a man-bun.

However, sometimes men like those only look good on the outside, and end up being rather crummy on the inside.

Trust me, I’ve experienced my fair share of well-groomed idiots!

Case in point, the Rolex wearing marketing executive that asked me to take off my shoes before entering his Audi, or the sexy-tattooed artist that was completely self-absorbed and literally checked his Facebook while we were having sex!

I could go on, but you get the point – sexy doesn’t always amount to a truly attractive man.

25 things that make a man attractive to women

A lot of what really makes a man attractive to women is what we discover after we get over the perfectly cut jawlines, and broad shoulders.

Sometimes, it may take a while to see the things that really matter.

But no matter what, eventually these 25 things are what women find completely and utterly attractive about men!

#1 A man that has purpose. Whether it is his devotion to a career, or how he volunteers his time after hours, when a man has purpose and dedication, it is unbelievably attractive.

#2 A man that can fix things. It’s not that we don’t want to be self-reliant because most woman value independence, it’s just that when a man can fix things it is incredibly sexy, and not to mention, economical. [Read: 20 things you need to have to be a real man]

#3 A man that cares about his family. A man that takes responsibility and cares for his family – whether it be elderly parents, a sibling, or a misguided relative – it shows maturity and love, and both of those are definitely attractive.

#4 A man’s hands. Maybe it’s because they can fix, create, and provide great pleasure.

#5 A man that has dreams, and follows them. Goals in life are crucial if a person wants to amount to something, and make a difference. There is nothing sexier than a man that knows what he wants, and pursues it with a fiery passion.

#6 A man with class. Chivalry is not dead. A man that has class – not “swag” – is completely gorgeous. Open doors, wear pants at the waist, and tell a woman how lovely she looks. [Read: Chivalry is dead only because men are getting lazy]

#7 A man that isn’t afraid to communicate how he truly feels. Women don’t really want the strong, silent type; it’s too damn difficult. What women find attractive is a man that can tell us exactly what he needs and wants, and how he is feeling. [Read: Pillow talk – 8 conversations in bed that’ll make her love you more!]

#8 A man that takes care of us in bed. A woman finds it very pleasing when a man cares about her needs in bed. A real man doesn’t just pump, shoot and roll over, but instead works on making a woman very satisfied before calling it a night. [Read: 12 things guys do that makes a girl want to fake it in bed]

#9 A man with manners. Knowing how to address a senior, behave properly around a mother, and eat without resembling a troll is always appealing for a woman.

#10 A man that is confident, but not cocky. Confidence is so hot, but a man with a Kanye-sized ego is not. A man that knows he is good at something, but doesn’t always feel the need to preach is what a woman really wants.

#11 A man that likes to laugh, and make us laugh. Laughing has been proven to make people live longer, happier lives. If a man can make a woman laugh and laugh along with her, that is a double win. [Read: A guy’s guide to make any girl smile, laugh and like you instantly]

#12 A man that can admit to his mistakes. I’m talking about small mistakes like getting us lost, and big mistakes like forgetting birthdays. If a man can admit to his wrongdoing and acknowledge that he is in fact, only human, that is very appealing.

#13 A man that is intelligent. A PhD isn’t necessary, but a man that can hold his own in whatever topic he is passionate about, is so attractive. Also, books are always sexy.

#14 A man that isn’t afraid of commitment. Women are tired of hearing that the reason we can’t find an amazing relationship is because men are afraid of commitment. That’s bull. A man that isn’t afraid of saying “yes, I will be yours, and I promise to stay yours until we agreed otherwise” is the most attractive. [Read: 10 subtle signs you’ve got the fear of commitment]

#15 A man that can surprise us. This isn’t just pulling surprise birthday parties or coming home with flowers. This is being able to pull out amazing maneuvers that leave us feeling like you are capable of anything and everything.

#16 A man that can cook. Feeding a woman can be the gateway to her heart. If you can provide a woman with a delicious meal, she will undoubtedly find you irresistible.

#17 A man that is an amazing dad. Being a parent takes an absurd amount of time and energy, and if a man is willing to change disgusting diapers, endure sleepless nights and play dress up, that is totally alluring to a woman *who wants kids*.

#18 A man that can motivate us. Maintaining inspiration is often tough at times when life has got you feeling down and out. When a man can motivate you to continue to pursue your dreams, it is definitely an obvious plus.

#19 A man that isn’t afraid to grow. A person shouldn’t stop trying to improve themselves and the world they live in. Life is a continual learning process and a man that can celebrate that is more appealing than one that is set in his age-old ways.

#20 A man that owns his nerdiness. Memorizing an entire series like Star Wars, or being obsessed with video games is completely fine, as long as a man can own it. And of course, as long as it doesn’t consume too much of his time and energy to an unhealthy point.

#21 A man that can cuddle. Being embraced by a protective, loving, real-life teddy bear is one of the most comforting things in the world. If a man can provide that, he is instantly attractive to a woman *keep in mind time and place, of course*.

#22 A man that doesn’t mind taking out the garbage. The little stuff seems small but truly counts. If a man can help out with minute tasks such as dishes and share life’s load of responsibilities, they are more attractive than any super model.

#23 A man that we can have fun with. Life should be lived to the fullest, and that means having as much fun as possible. We are here for a good time, so if a man can have fun with us, we find them completely charming. [Read: 50 cute and sexy things guys do that girls adore!]

#24 A man that loves the environment. We are part of our environment, and a man that acknowledges this and cares for the world around him is almost too sexy to handle.

#25 A man that will love us the way we are. Women have to deal with enough self-doubt from the world around them, and the last thing they need is a man telling them they should change X,Y or Z. A man that loves a woman for who she is, and not what she looks like, or what job she holds is a beautiful thing. [Read: 12 Prince Charming traits that make a girl swoon!]

A sexy body isn’t the only thing, or the most important thing, that women find attractive about men. It’s really more about what’s going on in a man’s head and heart that makes a man irresistible *or not* to a woman.

  • Dunsen

    Many of the tips in this list are way too subjective…#24 borders funny.

  • Laura

    I’m a woman, guys, and believe me, this list is it! The earlier poster may say that the qualities are too subjective, but really, even if you have a few of these qualities, you’re already great. And if you’ve got most of these qualities, you’re definitely drool-worthy!

    I mean, really, why is it so hard for men to just make these small changes?

    On the other hand, they expect women to go through heaven and earth just to look pretty in their hands, like we’re their f*cking accessory!

  • Mike

    This is wish list, rather. This is what women want in men more than what women find attractive in men. This will take “Custom Creation” of men to keep up with ladies demand I guess.

  • Flub

    #25 lol I done that for 8 years looking after a wife with bi polar when I got ill I got kicked to the curb yeah go figure

  • Brian

    Huh ,
    Well I think I have at leat 23 of those characteristics and out of 4 major relationships I’ve been cheated on by three women and dumped by the other because something was missing between us !!! The only conclusion I come to must be the two characteristics that I don’t match up with. That or this piece is wrong !!!!!

  • Finite Guy

    Been doing these things for years and all it has done is land me in the friend zone. Seems like the Ezines send out bogus bunk to throw good guys off the path while the kevin federlines of the world get the girl,,

  • Philip

    Girls generally really look into your social life. If you have a lot of friends and interests that you meet and do all the time, you will leave a much better impression than if you literally have 1 friend that you occasionally go out with. A big social circle is very important not just with girls, but with life in general, connections are everything.

    You will appear much more successful if you’re not free every time a girl hits you up. At least that’s what works for me. You need to remember that different girls have different goals and expectations. So what some girls might find attractive and awesome, some girls might find disgusting and unappealing. You really need to get to know a personal before trying to make an impact on their opinion of you. In todays day and age it’s pretty simple because you can find a lot about people through social media.

  • Adored

    I just think I attract women everywhere I go. It’s like my curse or something. I’m just that handsome. You would say that I’m a douche for saying it but if you see me in person maybe you would turn gay. I had a lot of guy friends question their sexuality because they liked me so much. I’m so likeable and all the girls’ mothers I met adore me. It’s just in my nature. If you see a guy who looks like they have everything in the world, you’re probably looking at me. I am that guy. I have the world in my hands.

  • Honey bee

    I really find my man attractive and it’s because he is very neat. He’s a neat guy and he’s also nice, he has the face that matches his attitude and I love him for that. Honey, you make me feel like I don’t need no ring and I don’t need anything but you and me because in your company I feel happy, oh so happy and complete. It’s a good excuse that I love to use, baby, I now what to do all the time I will love you and you will be my honey bee giving me sweet kisses all the time and yo’re always going to be my valentine every valentine’s day. I will never miss a valentine’s day because you will always be mine. You may not be the most handsome guy to the world but you are to me. I love you.

  • Tyler

    This is complete bull shit. I fit everyone of these, and I don’t get a second look from hardly anyone. You say all of these things, but how many women actually go for that. (I’m 21)
