What Attracts Men to Women?

Men are moved by what they see, and women are moved by what they hear. Well, for the first time, I’m in support of the above saying. However, when it comes to what attracts men to women, there will never be a straight forward way to answer this question.


The taste of every man differs, just as that of every woman. Which means that what you find attractive and sexy about one woman may be what another man finds disgusting and repulsive.

But then we all will agree that there are certain universal traits that men find attractive in women. I will begin by discussing the common characteristics that every man will find inviting, before going further to address some Unique features that draw men to people of the opposite sex.

People say things like I’m “sapiosexual” or “I’m attracted to slim women” or something else, but the fact remains that all forms of Attraction begin from the same place – Physical Attraction.

Before you get to know a person intimately, that is getting to know about the character or charisma, the first thing you notice is how they look, which is why it is easier for a man to be drawn to slim curvy women than to a chubby one.

Not because the chubby woman isn’t beautiful or doesn’t have a great personality, but because naturally, people consider slim and shapely women to be more attractive than their big, bold, and beautiful counterparts.

Depending on how the fat lady looks, the first thing that comes to a person’s mind is that she doesn’t care about her appearance and doesn’t take good care of her body.

But the Slim lady, on the other hand, is considered to have all that it takes to have a man’s head-turning. And also, the Slim lady might be pretty flexible in bed and can try out different sex positions ( But Wait, that might not even come to your mind in the first place, but it’s one of those things).

The takeaway from this first part is personal care. It is essential to pay attention to how you look even if you do not have the shape of a model. As long as you try to be beautiful not only on the inside but on the outside, you definitely will get the kind of attention that you deserve or desire.

This is not to shoot darts at anyone’s self-confidence. I understand that several factors contribute to the shaping of a woman’s body and looks.


Factors such as diet, childbirth, aging, and even medical conditions may affect a person’s looks. But then, there are certain little things you can do to make yourself physically attractive without trying too hard.

Now while being physically attractive is one thing, being physically approachable is another. I am a firm Believer in the vibe people give and what it attracts.

Just the way children know not to approach their parents with requests or demands when the parents do not look friendly or are in a bad mood, so also men read the facial expressions of women and do not approach them when they do not look like they want to be approached.

For women who continuously look upset or who never wear a smile, no matter how nicely shaped they are or how beautifully they wear their makeup or dresses, no man would want to walk up to them and get turned down.

So even though they’re physically attractive, the expression on their face is not inviting; thus, they will be considered less attractive than women who are not as hot as they are but put on a smiling face.

The lesson in this part is to be approachable, make sure that no matter where you are, no matter how you are dressed, you have a smile on your face. They say that you are never fully dressed without a smile is very useful here.

When a woman or even a man wears a frown, he or she becomes repulsive to other humans, and nobody wants to be around an angry or unhappy person. The world is filled with enough bitterness and sadness already; every simple smile is enough to magnet as many people as possible.

So, how about when a person is physically attractive and also approachable, but does not give any sign of interest? This, too, is a crucial factor. Sometimes, a person may look good and not wear a frown, but will not provide any indication that they are interested in getting to know you, let alone getting intimate with you.

As we have earlier mention, men are moved by what they see, so when a woman gives body language or signals that indicate sexual or other interests in a man, it is easier for that man also to pick an interest in her.

Do not get me wrong; this is not to say that to become attractive to a man, you have to be sexually provocative – not at all. What I’m trying to say here is that if you want a certain kind of attention, you need to act like it, but at the same time, do not act desperate.


Imagine a woman seated at a bar, looking right back at a man who is looking at her, and gently sipping on a glass of wine while wearing a smile. Most definitely, this kind of woman will get the man to walk right up to her without even trying too hard.

Then imagine another woman seated at the same bar, with the same glass of wine, not smiling, not frowning, and looking away.

Now, some men may go out of their way to still approach this lady, but other men will easily let go of whatever Physical Attraction they already have towards her because her body language does not tell them that she’s interested in having a conversation later is she open for anything they might have to offer.

The lesson here is to make sure that you give off signs that speak what you want. These are the three basic things that universally attract men to women.

However, there are certain unique traits that men may also find quite attractive. These unique traits include how a woman walks, talks, a woman’s level of intelligence, charisma, and things like how she smiles, smells, and also her character.
