Contrary to popular opinion, women are not solely attracted to wavy hair, dimples, a muscular build and a square jawline. As is often said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some women prefer men with musical talent while others are drawn toward men with a particularly beautiful smile, a strong moral compass or hobbies similar to her own. Let’s take a look at the characteristics and features women are secretly attracted to yet will probably never admit unless surrounded their closest, most trusted friends.
Women Secretly Enjoy a Little Awkwardness
If you go out of your way to avoid awkwardness in the presence of a potential flame, she will see right through the act. Do not be afraid to be a bit awkward around women. In short, women want men to be their true self instead of putting on a show. Exhibit a little bit of awkwardness now and then and you will endear the women in your vicinity. After all, awkwardness is a latent indication of attraction. Women who are aware of a men’s attraction – by way of a display of awkwardness – are that much more likely to find him flattering.
Women Want Men who are Passionate About Something Other Than Sex
If your only hobby is making sweet love to your woman, she will likely find you to be quite the bore. So don’t believe the hype about geeks never getting with women. The truth is women want men to be passionate about something other than love.
In short, it is in your interest to develop your hobbies. A man with hobbies is a signal that he uses his time in a productive manner. Develop a passion, round your edges and you really will be valued that much more in the dating market.
Women Want a Man who Treats his Friends Right
If you do not treat your friends with care and respect, your woman will think you are putting on a façade for her. The little-known truth is women pay particularly close attention to the manner in which men act around their friends. If you are a good friend to your male compadres, chances are you will also be a good friend to your significant other.
The proof is in the pudding: according to a Purdue University study, women find men with solid friendships that much more attractive. The bottom line is men who display the traits women value in friendships are that much more likely to attract those women and remain in a strong relationship with them across posterity.
Women are Attracted to Men Capable of Cooking a Decent Meal
Gender roles are blurring as time progresses. The days of women working up a sweat in the kitchen to present a well-prepared meal to their hardworking man coming home from a grueling day of labor are quickly fading away. The notion of women being attracted to men who can cook well is not mere conjecture. Consider the results of a recent experiment conducted by a group of British neuroscientists. Nearly two dozen couples were analyzed during the experiment in which women observed men performing a wide array of tasks. The women’s physiological responses were carefully monitored. The results showed women’s observation of men cooking in the kitchen resulted in more arousal than the observation of men performing “manly” work such as building something or sawing wood.
Why so Serious?
Above all, women want a man who has a strong sense of humor. Ideally, the woman you covet will share a similar sense of humor as your own. This does not mean you have to be a standup comedian to attract women. Rather, a little bit of funny banter and quick wit here and there will help knock down those metaphorical “social walls” between men and women, serving as common ground for a successful relationship to be built upon.
