41 Girls Describe The Little Traits That Can Make A Not-So-Handsome Guy Immediately Attractive

31. Once I get a sniff of delicious cologne/deodorant, he really does grab my attention.

“Smelling nice. There were so many times I would be walking toward a guy or we are in line, etc., and he’s not so eye catching so I don’t think much of it, but once I get a sniff of delicious cologne/deodorant, he really does grab my attention.”


32. Good manners mean so much more than six-pack abs.

“Good manners and treating others with respect. Those are qualities that speak volumes about how you plan to treat the woman in your life and means so much more than six-pack abs.”


33. A good dancer.

“Become a good dancer. Especially Latin dances (salsa, bachata, cha-cha). There are studios and social nights in every big cities. Also, it’s a great, healthy and social hobby!”


34. A man with an outgoing personality who surrounds himself with friends.

“If you’re not very attractive you can easily be perceived as attractive if you have an outgoing personality and surround yourself with friends. Something about other people liking you will make the girl like you, too. Eventually this will lead to her wanting your attention and then eventually lead her into your pants. So go make some friends.”


35. A shaved head.

“Good haircut, and if you don’t have enough hair, shave it. I have dated more bald men than guys with hair, totally sexy. Also…a good smell. If I see a cute guy and he stinks, huge turnoff. A delicious smell can bring up a guy’s cute points. Also, clothes. Learn to dress for your body. Clothes that are baggy when you have thinner legs don’t look attractive. Get a tighter fit. Shirts that are too big and make it look as if you’re wearing a tent…not attractive. And, good teeth. Take care of your teeth, you don’t have to have blinding whites…but there is no bigger turnoff than a guy with black specks or sludge in his teeth.”


36. A man who can make women feel good about themselves when they are at their lowest.

“I have a friend I’ve known since middle school. I actually dated him for a short time. He is not what you would call attractive. He has deathly pale skin and almost white blond hair (kind of looks almost albino), he’s overweight, he wears glasses that don’t compliment his face at all, he’s incredibly socially awkward and can become very emotionally dependent very quickly. I would give him about a 4.5/10.

All that being said, he dates some of the hottest women I have ever seen in real life. His current fiancee is a smoking 9. He dated a model for a short time and she was a solid 10 (batshit crazy, but hot as hell). I always wondered how he got all these women because it’s not his looks and he’s definitely not a charmer.

And then I dated him. He is remarkably adept at making women feel good about themselves when they are at their lowest. He builds you up until you’ve got your confidence back and then will calmly let you go. He doesn’t do it in a creepy manipulative way, either. He just sees that you’re feeling bad and works his ass off to make you feel better about yourself.

It also helps that he is very, VERY eager to please. ;)”
