While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there are some traits most men cannot resist. Though some are known, others are surprising and based on numerous scientific types of research. The overall conclusion is that men do not care for perfection.
Here are some surprising traits men cannot resist!
Men love seeing an honest, genuine smile on a woman. It sends a sign that she is interested and even feeds men's need for approval. The smile and eyes are the first things guys notice in women.
Numerous studies have concluded that men find women more attractive during ovulation. Men appear to be biologically programmed to pick up the one time a month when the ovaries release an egg ready for fertilization.
Men typically find the curvaceous female form highly attractive, as women with a smaller waist and wider hips appear more mature, healthy, and have reproductive potential.
According to several surveys, most men are attracted to blue-eyed ladies. Brown eyes are in second place, followed by green and hazel. Interestingly, among those who picked blue eyes were primarily blue and green-eyed men.

Well-kept manicure and pedicure
For many men, well-kept nails, hands, and feet are part of being put together and looking feminine. Men like women wearing red nail polish as well as muted, natural shades. The vast majority do not like seeing acrylic nails and neon colors.
Tiny feet symbolize not only elegance but also moral virtue and modesty. This is why men find tiny feet to be irresistible.
Petite in size
Men prefer petite to tall women. They see taller women as more conventionally attractive and more intelligent than shorter women. However, shorter women are seen as "more nurturing and likely to be better mothers."
There are numerous reasons why guys obsess over legs, including an assumption that a woman with solid legs is fitness oriented and therefore is healthy. Ideally, if a woman has just a bit longer than the average length of the legs, men will notice.
Red lips or dress
Though men do not pay too much attention to women's fashion, they love seeing ladies wearing a touch of red. It could be a shade of red lipstick, a red dress, or a red manicure. The color of heat and passion never goes out of style.
The way a woman walks
Researchers have found that the most appealing walks usually involve a slight sway in the hips and short steps. It is a skill, so women can practice showing off their curves in a naturally seductive way. Though men like heels, if a woman is struggling, that is not an attractive way to show off her walking skills.
Men find the scent of women's reproductive hormones attractive, which is why they disapprove of women bathing in perfumes. But when It comes to fragrances, they like light florals, like jasmine and lavender, with fresh citrusy aromas.
Laughing at men's jokes
While men appreciate a woman with a sense of humor, most guys enjoy nothing more than seeing their girl smiling at something they say.
Maintaining eye contact
A woman who maintains solid eye contact signals her interest and confidence. Eye contact has an arousing effect on men and makes a woman appear intelligent, sincere, and courageous.
While women are busy trying to find youth serum, men tend to like mature-looking women the most. Guys want their partner to be the epitome of feminine authentic, intense, and spontaneous energy, so they gravitate toward women who are in their early 30s. Researchers claim that women peak at 31.
Naturally thick brows
Thicker brows look healthy, and even scientists have proven they are more attractive, especially to men who want a long-term partner. Thicker brows stand out and give a frame to the eyes.
Pearly white teeth are absolutely attractive. Yet, they do not have to be perfectly straight, as many guys find teeth gaps adorable. Women with tooth gaps are considered bright, creative, and unique.
By taking a walk on the wild side, a woman signals to her man that she is ready to share adventures with him. A guy also gets a chance to be protective while hiking, bungee jumping, or kayaking with the woman of his dreams.
A healthy dose of Independence
A woman who is independent but emotionally available is highly desirable. She does not need a man but wants him because of his qualities.
Healthy, shiny hair
Shiny hair indicates good health and implies that a woman enjoys taking care of herself. Though most guys prefer long hair, a shorter one can look just as attractive if it looks feminine and well-maintained.
A higher-pitched voice is youthful and feminine, which makes it attractive. This does not mean a woman should fake her naturally raspy or deep voice. Being yourself is the ultimate turn-on!
Some men like smaller breasts, while others prefer D cups. Since women with C cups are most satisfied with their breast size, their confidence is something men pick up on, and that makes C cup ladies even more attractive.
Most guys prefer to see a woman with minimal makeup. Study after study has shown that men prefer women without heavy makeup, which implies they enjoy seeing fresh and healthy-looking faces.
The symmetric and full lips are incredibly appealing. Similarly, guys like women who pout. Interestingly, psychologists claim that having fuller lips is a sign of blood flow on the face which is essential to health and fertility.
A larger forehead symbolizes intelligence while appearing cute and youthful.
Dressing like an adult
Men like women to either wear provocative but elegant clothes or something comfortable with a hint of curves. From wearing skirt suits and little dresses to yoga pants, guys want a woman who dresses like a woman, not a girl.
Men value a woman bold enough to take the initiative. They do not always want to chase women, and only a woman who knows what she wants and has confidence will make the first move. That is quite appealing!
Being a good listener
When they have an emotional problem, men would rather talk to women since they are usually better listeners with more empathy and problem-solving nature. Knowing how to listen and read cues is highly ranked on the list of attractive qualities.
Nurturing women are seen as supportive and encouraging to those around them. They want to see others succeed and are always there to offer a helping hand. This trait is among the most attractive to men, representing one of the finest feminine qualities.
A woman can have all the curves, a gorgeous smile, and perfect legs, but she might not get noticed if she is not confident. Confident women are not arrogant. They merely know what they want, and men greatly respect that.
