Boys Hate These 10 Things — But Grown Men Find Them Sexy AF

Kareya Saleh

1. She knows what she wants. Grown men think it’s sexy when a woman knows what she wants and goes after it. When she makes the first move. When she isn’t afraid to text first or initiate a kiss.

2. She refuses to play games. Grown men don’t want to chase you. They don’t want to guess what’s on your mind. They want to hear how you feel. They want you to say what you mean and mean what you say.

3. She’s honest. Grown men don’t want you to lie about liking their favorite bands or beer to impress them. They don’t want you to tell white lies about how many people you’ve slept with or how long you’ve been single, either. They want you to be upfront with them. Authentic. Honest.

4. She’s responsible. Grown men actually want to hear from you. They want a text if you’re going to be late. They want updates on your life. They don’t want to be ignored or kept in the dark.

5. She’s weird. Grown men love women who embrace their oddities. Women who know who they are and don’t care what other people think about them. Women who aren’t afraid to be themselves.

6. She’s independent. Grown men don’t feel insecure when they find out a woman makes more money than them or likes to spend her Friday nights out with her friends. He’s happy she has a life of her own. That she doesn’t need him around every second of the day.

7. She’s confident. Grown men like women who like themselves. They don’t want you to feel ugly when they forget to compliment you on date night. They want you to see the beauty in yourself. They want you to know that you’re hot stuff, that you could have any guy you wanted.

8. She is affectionate. Grown men want to hold hands in public. They want to give kisses hello and goodbye. They want to cuddle throughout the night. They love expressing their love for you.

9. She’s mature. Grown men want to have adult conversations with you whenever there’s a problem. They don’t want to get in a screaming match that ends with slamming doors and they don’t want to ghost you. They want you to treat each other respectfully, no matter the circumstance.

10. She’s ready to commit. Grown men aren’t interested in playing the field. They want someone to settle down with, someone who is willing to commit to a serious relationship. Someone who they can spend the rest of their life alongside. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
