#8 A guy who knows how to cook. Women think a man who has command of his kitchen is sexy.

#9 Being passionate about something no matter what it is. Be it a simple hobby such as stamp collecting or an important social advocacy, women get turned on by the determined look of a man who found his passion. They see such men as geared towards success and bound to accomplish something very important in the future.

#11 Intelligence. Hearing a guy discuss his fascination with the mysteries of the universe or debate his buddies on political theory is a refreshing sight from the usual guy who only talks about his past conquests or last night’s football game. Women are the type who finds a guy who initiates enlightening and insightful conversation attractive.

#12 A good housekeeper. One of those overlooked things that turn girls on? A guy capable of running a household on his own. Someone who does the laundry, cooks, buys groceries, grooms the pets, and pays the bills on time.

Of course, she would want to be with someone who’s reliable in managing the household and wouldn’t just laze in front of the game console all day.

#13 Opening doors for her. It’s such a simple gesture, but this small act of chivalry can get a guy in far places. Women always lament the fact that genuinely chivalrous men are a dying breed.

#15 A guy who pays attention to details. Girls will fondly recall a guy who will surprise her with her favorite carrot cake just because she mentioned it in passing. Or maybe that boyfriend who gave her a purple cell phone cover after taking a hint from the dominant color of her bedroom décor. Girls want you to be that kind of guy.

#16 A guy who’s friendly to her pets. When a girl introduces her pet to a guy, expect that she’s paying close attention to your reaction. If you’re the type who will extend the same affection to her furry friends, then you’ll be getting a good mark on her scoreboard.

#17 When he gets along with her parents and siblings. Of course, it goes the same with her family. It is hard and intimidating at first, but a sure way to a girl’s heart is to get along with her parents and siblings. There’s a chance they might become your future family after all.
