    it depends on the guy and depends on the girl. you're never going to get one blanket-statement that covers what every girl finds attractive. we're individuals, you know... ;)

    If you say to a girl "my two favorite hobbie's are commitment and changing myself" then she'll know you've seen way to much futurama, esp as the ep hasn't been shown in australia yet :p

    That is a pretty tough question though. I can't even think of what I find attractive. I guess it varies too much. Personality would be high up there. Along with humour - gotta be able to make me laugh... But hey, I don't need to think about this question. I find Darth_Soup to be perfect... :p

    My advice is dont bother looking.

    Girlfriends cost too much money and time and they will eventually dump you for a better looking guy!!!!

    (Thats not coming from my own experience by the way, I just happen to be very cynical about dating and romance)

    for me, it's all about personality. and i can't say it's this, this, this, and this... it's just a personality that i find attractive.

    the guy that i'm currently dating i knew, but i got to know him better over IM, because he was really shy IRL, but opened up more on the computer. he's just a sweetie... but i can't say it's this, this, and this that i like about him!

    I have to agree with marvin, there, U don't need girlfriends... trust me. LOL.

    NOT that i have ever had 1, (or want 2.... ;) )

    Anywayz..... In a guy, personality is all that matters. LOL. Personally, I need a fun, "different" guy, who can tolerate my sarcasm, and "weirdness". LOL.

    Any takers? ;)

    Personality, humour, tenderness and (this is a biggie) maturity, especially at my age.
    Teenage guys as a rule just don't seem to get the maturity thing.

    That whole "girls love a funny guy" is a crock, IMO. Girls fall for the hero, not the sidekick. Jokes get old fast. It's the way of the world.

    In reality, it's a combination of looks and personality. For girls, the emphasis tends to be on personality, though. So if you're at least semi-attractive and have a great/interesting personality then you've probably got a good chance.

    One tip: Don't flirt straight away. Slowly (VERY slowly.... i'm talking weeks here) work into the conversation

    But that's just my (limited) experience.

    "BALTIMORE - The kind of man's face a woman finds attractive varies with her menstrual cycle, according to a study published in today's issue of the journal Nature.

    When a woman is ovulating, or ready to conceive, she is likely to prefer men with more masculine features. When she is menstruating, or least likely to get pregnant, she is apt to prefer softer, more feminine looks, according to the study by Scottish and Japanese researchers."

    So there you go, guys!

    Hope that helps.


    LOL


    :p

    Dave, don't try to quantify what is basically unmeasurable..Women think with a strange logic, of which they seemto have a complete lack thereof ;)

    Personally I think women look either at the size of the biceps or the size of your wallet ;)

    And the personality thing doesn't gel with me :)...heck I'm an empirical example that that is a absolute null hypothesis! ie I have the GREATEST personality and I'm a sad lonley bastard, oh I'm humble tooo :) <eats humble pie :D>

    Don't blame me! It's the femmes what are doing it!

    :p


    And EVERYTHING can be reduced to quantifiable figures.


    More or less.

    Great question!

    I have been single for about 2 years now, and I am looking for miss right... I suppose what goes against me is that I am too picky... (not just looks, but personality, shared beliefs and interests, etc...)

    However, to reiterate - good question, I would love to know the answer!

    Good sense of humour, someone who knows the same quotes from the same films, a man who knows when to let you live and have space, a man who wants to share the journey and not be the whole thing.

    There's more......

    someone who always remembers to close the window in your computer room, attractive is a guy who isn't afraid to hug you in the street, someone who makes you laugh every day, someone who knows how you feel without asking, really soft hands.

    ^ Well, I hope you find him some day.

    I'm not trying to be negative, just realistic, when I say this: The more you talk about things you look for in a guy, the lower the probablitity you have of actually finding someone who fits that criteria.

    I already found him, and my point is when you fal in love with someone for a few reasons, there is so much more about them that gets added to what you find attractive in a man.
    If there is one word, I would say it starts with a "connection" and moves from there.
