But here are 14 more things that women find attractive in men.

#1 Valued Independence

The #1 thing women find attractive in men is autonomy or independence.1

Autonomy means you are self-contained. You are whole and fulfilled without women, or you have a higher purpose. A.K.A., you are not needy.

It’s one of the reasons why women are SO attracted to bad boys. Bad boys don’t really care if women love them or not. Their #1 priority is not women, and quite frankly, guys, it drives us wild!

Pro Tip:

Always have a higher purpose. Don’t be like a needy pickup artist who is desperate to talk to every girl he sees. If you see a girl you like, invite her into your life, and if she says no, then you haven’t lost because you are already winning.

#2 Top-notch Cleanliness

Good hygiene is an essential part of any man’s physical attractiveness. It is often the first thing a woman notices about a man and can be a huge turn-off if it is not taken seriously.2

Hygiene can be a broad term, but it mostly involves being clean (bathed or showering) and using a good-quality deodorant, as well as taking care of your body with proper grooming and hairstyling.

Investing in good quality grooming products, as well as a nice-smelling aftershave or deodorant, and taking the time to practice good hygiene habits will go a long way toward making you more attractive to women.

Pro Tip:

If you want to take it to the next level try a cologne that incorporates pheromones. Many men find that wearing pheromones makes women more attracted to them on a subconscious level.

#3 Bold Confidence

Confidence is key when it comes to attraction, it really is. I mean, let’s be honest, most women won’t have that initial spark for a guy who doesn’t make any confident eye contact and has a softer voice than her.3

Women can sometimes be unrealistic in what they want but we are all are naturally attracted to men who know their worth and are self-assured. It’s an attractive quality that women look for in a man as it implies security and a lack of neediness. Men who have a good sense of self-worth and confidence will be better able to attract women.

Confidence also implies strength and courage, which can be appealing to women. Studies have also shown that women are more likely to be attracted to men who are confident in their own skin and don’t feel the need to hide behind the facade of a false persona.

We’ve got 3 confidence-based programs on Menprovement X to help you become the most confident version of yourself, overcome nice guy syndrome, and be the most attractive version of yourself.

#4 Laugh-Inducing Wit

When it comes to physical attractiveness, humor is often overlooked, but it is an important factor that many women find attractive in men. Not only does a good sense of humor show intelligence and maturity, but it also shows that a man has the confidence and charisma to make people laugh.

Funny men also show they are unafraid to take risks and be spontaneous, which can make him more attractive to women. A man with a good sense of humor can make a woman feel comfortable and at ease in any situation, which can make her feel more interested in getting to know him better.

#5 Strong Physical Build

Ok, this is probably an obvious one but let’s cover this one now:

Physical features are often the first thing a woman notices when she meets a man.

Although looks are only one factor that can attract a woman, they do play an important role in making the initial impression.

Having good physical features can help boost a man’s confidence (see section above) and make him more attractive to women. Good hygiene, a muscular physique, good posture, and height are all physical characteristics that can help draw the attention of women.

We all know that the right muscles can attract the opposite sex, but it’s not just about having a six-pack. Women love men who have toned arms, legs, and back. This is why many men I know work out and hit the gym regularly to try and build their muscles and overall physique.

When I worked in the gym, I saw too many guys just doing exercises like bicep curls and benchpresses 24/7 because they thought those were the things girls find attractive. 😂

But it’s important to remember that bigger isn’t always better. Women also appreciate men who have a balanced and proportionate physique.

So, if you’re looking to get those muscles to impress the ladies, make sure you’re focusing on the RIGHT kind of exercises that will help you build a lean and toned muscular physique.

Pro Tip:

You can’t really go wrong with bodyweight exercises. Do push-ups, squats, lunges and planches. If exercises become too easy, throw in a dumbbell or two.

#6 Standing with Confidence

Good posture is another thing that is often overlooked when it comes to physical attractiveness in men. While many women might focus on toned muscles and broad shoulders, a good posture is a sign of strength and confidence.

When a man stands tall and walks with a certain air of confidence, it is incredibly attractive to the opposite sex. This can be taken a step further by having a muscular physique (another attribute), which can be achieved by working out regularly and staying in shape.

Having toned muscles can make a man look more athletic and healthy, which are two qualities that many women find attractive in a man.

#7 The Taller Advantage

Many women prefer men who are 6 feet or above.4

It’s no secret that tall men tend to stand out more among their peers, and that’s why so many women are drawn to them. The height of a man can make him appear more masculine, confident, and attractive.

#8 Irresistible Charm

Charm and charisma are two of the most attractive qualities that a man can possess. Women love a man who can make conversation and carry himself confidently in a social setting.

Charismatic men possess a certain aura that draws people in. They are the life of the party, always ready to make a joke or have a lighthearted conversation. They are also comfortable in their own skin and exude an air of confidence.

Charm and charisma can be incredibly attractive in a man but fair warning though… too much and you’ll come across as someone who is cocky or even classified as a player.

#9 Smart with a Mature Touch

While physical traits are certainly a draw for many (or most) women, intelligence and maturity can often be the deciding factor for many.

Intelligence is attractive because it shows that a man is capable of making decisions, understanding difficult concepts, and generally being able to think critically.

Maturity is attractive because it shows that a man is capable of understanding and handling difficult situations and is responsible enough to make responsible decisions.
Founder, CEO | Menprovement

While physical traits may be the initial draw, intelligence and maturity can often help to make a strong, lasting impression.

#10 Genuine smile

A natural smile can be one of the most attractive features a man can have. Studies have shown that men with facial hair, such as beards and mustaches, are perceived as more attractive in long-term relationships.5

Furthermore, it is not only facial hair that can make a man look attractive but also his teeth. A natural smile with even and white teeth can be enough to make a woman’s heart flutter.

#11 Passion for Success

When it comes to things females find attractive in a man, ambition and drive are definitely up there. A man who is motivated and determined to succeed in his life is incredibly attractive to women.

Ambition and drive can come in many different forms, from a successful career to learning a new language. Women also find it attractive when a man has a passion for something and is determined to pursue it.

Having ambition and drive makes a man more attractive because it shows that he is willing to take risks, is confident, and has a positive attitude towards their future. It’s this kind of attitude that women find irresistible.

#12 Engaging Eye contact

Good eye contact is an important factor when it comes to physical attraction. A man who can make steady eye contact with a woman is seen as more confident and trustworthy. It also shows that he is comfortable in his skin and not afraid to show his true feelings.

Looking into someone’s eyes while talking to them can make them feel appreciated and more secure in the conversation. It also shows confidence, which is another attractive quality that can draw a woman’s attention.6

Furthermore, when a man looks into the eyes of a woman, it can help to create a feeling of intimacy and connection. It is also a sign that he is interested in what she has to say and is genuinely listening to her. Good eye contact can be a powerful tool when it comes to physical attraction, so guys… do more of it, please.

#13 Love for Adventure

Having a sense of adventure is another quality that can be INCREDIBLY attractive to women. Adventure can mean different things to different people, but having a passion for exploring new places, trying new activities, and having experiences outside of the ordinary will make you more attractive to women.

Women are drawn to men who are not boring and willing to take risks and try new things, and those who have a sense of adventure show that they’re brave, confident, and independent.
Founder, CEO | Menprovement

If you’re someone who enjoys taking a spontaneous road trip, going on a backpacking trip or any other kind of adventurous activity, make sure to show it off and express your enthusiasm when you first meet a girl. Women will be drawn to your sense of adventure and be attracted to your confidence and ambition.

#14 Attention to Detail

Although it’s not the deciding factor, women are attracted to men based on things like what kind of car they drive, their apartment (& how clean it is), their style (watches, etc.) and even their job.

All these things matter and add onto your sex appeal.

But over everything, women find a man with a sense of purpose and drive extremely hot – and these things external details usually come along for the ride.
