17 things women find irresistible about men

Posted March 24

What is it that makes a woman go crazy for a man? There’s a certain “je ne sais quoi” irresistible men have - an elusive, indefinable quality that draws women in. All women want a man with these 17 attractive traits:

1. Thoughtful

Sacrifices and sweet gestures scream how much a man loves a woman. A man shows his woman how much he cares about her when he sacrifices his time to serve others and notices small details about her. Thoughtful messages such as these make her heart flutter.

2. Humor

A rare commodity these days, wit reflects the intellectual and lighthearted sides of a man. Needless to say, a man who can make a woman laugh will be the one who stands by her side through good times and bad.

3. Romance

Every woman wants to be swept off her feet. Romantic flowers, weekend getaways or hand-written notes keep the sparks alive in the relationship.

4. Confidence

Confidence shows you are comfortable in your own skin. Confidence and positive energy is infectious, and affects those around you. There is nothing sexier than a man who effortlessly uplifts others.

5. Humble

Arrogance is a big turn-off. Women appreciate men with soft, sensitive sides. It’s alright to be proud of your accomplishments, but keep your pride in check. A humble man is one who isn't afraid to fail because his hard work and persistence is success enough.

6. Smile

Your smile is probably the first trait she noticed about you. Toothy grins show off how happy you are and essentially, how happy you make her.

7. Style

You don’t have to be up to date on the latest fashions to show you have style. A clean, well-kept appearance is striking to women because it shows you know how to take care of yourself.

8. Prepared

Every woman is different, but overall, they want to be taken care of. A man's ability to provide for his family and invest himself in a relationship is reflected by his preparation for any situation.

9. Fatherly

Being good with children and protective of the ones you love is definitely eye-catching to women who want a family one day.

10. Talented

Talents like playing an instrument, singing, cooking or handy-man skills are desireable. Hobbies and talents showcase their ability to endure and excel at something they are passionate about. (Talents also make a man well-rounded.)

11. Motivated

Going after what you want takes courage and initiative. Motivation proves you are driven to find success in your marriage, work, dreams and goals. What woman doesn’t want to dream and achieve goals with the one she loves?

12. Passionate

Caring deeply about a talent or hobby often carries over into other areas of life. The passion a man has for something gives others a glimpse into the adventurous and interesting life he has. Women seek that passion and thrive from it.

13. Honesty

Plain and simple - a woman wants a man she can trust with her life.

14. Depth

Intelligence, effective communication, a desire for self-improvement and development and awareness makes a long-term relationship with a “deep” person more interesting and exciting.

15. Good listener

Women love to talk and they need to be listened to. When a man masters the art of listening by making eye contact, paying attention and responding, he masters the heart of his woman.

16. Kind

"Manliness" is often depicted as being strong, fearless and bold. Although those qualities might be present, kindness, chivalry and caring for others are what truly turns a boy into a desirable man.

17. Playful

Playful relationships change you from lovers to best friends. Being able to laugh with your love makes your life worth living. Women want to grow old and make memories with their best friend.
