Traits That Attract A Man To A Woman

What is it about her?

Everyone knows men are visual creatures, so one would assume a guy's initial attraction will most certainly be dominated by a lady's obvious physical strengths and not the ones hidden beneath her shiny exterior.

Sure, it's a nice bonus if she's bright and congenial, but more often than not, her pillowy lips, cascading hair and hourglass figure will etch the deepest impression during those first few meet and greets. Right? Well, sort of.

Glo.com and Chemistry.com surveyed 20,000 people to determine the answers to all these burning questions. They found that, naturally, "sexual chemistry" and "smile" rank high when a man initially meets a woman, but as time marches on and fleshy excitement simmers, "kindess" and "sense of humor" ranked in the top spots.

Here are the top ten traits that initially attract men to women:

  1. Sexual chemistry
  2. Smile
  3. Kindness
  4. Sense of humor
  5. General body type
  6. Eyes
  7. Intelligence
  8. Communication skills
  9. Teeth/lips
  10. Hair

And long-term, these are the ten traits that attract men to women:

  1. Kindness
  2. Sense of humor
  3. Communication skills
  4. Sexual prowess
  5. Intelligence 
  6. Smile 
  7. Listening skills
  8. Money/wealth
  9. General body type/fitness
  10. Eyes 

It's comforting to see that "smile" outranked "general body type" across the board, and also interesting to note that "kindness," "sense of humor" and "communication skills" are more important than "sexual prowess" in the long-run.

Ironically, "intelligence" fell a few points from initial meeting to long-term attraction. Perhaps because it was outshined by "communication skills"? Stereotypes aside, a man's needs really aren't too different from woman's once the dust settles and a commitment is established.
