When it comes to making good first impressions on your crush, you don’t need attractive looks or a lust-worthy body. Irrespective of the shape of your body, you can surely get your crush to fall head over heels in love with you. How? Here are some of the top 10 qualities women look for in a guy. 

10 Surprising qualities women look for in a guy:

1. Kindness is attractive

This is one of the most important qualities in men that women find attractive. Unfortunately, however, it is highly overlooked. In this tech-savvy era, where access to the internet and social media has become nothing but a piece of cake, men often disguise themselves to be someone they’re not. 

In this hustle and bustle, they often forget how attractive and heart-melting kindness and selflessness is. 

2. Develop a good personality

A good personality is one of the prerequisites of a woman when she is dating a guy. No matter how much of a handsome man he is, if he has a trash personality, she will certainly reject him without any regrets. So, before hunting for your date or impressing your crush, make sure that you have a confident and solid personality. 

One of the best ways to hone your personality would be to develop a good sense of humour. A plethora of studies affirm this and add that women are largely attracted to men’s ability to make them laugh. Interestingly enough, on the other hand, men are generally not attracted to a woman who can make them laugh. Is that so with you too?

3. Develop a good taste in music

Aristotle, one of the greatest philosophers, once said, ‘Music has the power of producing a certain effect on the moral character of the soul, and if it has the power to do this, it is clear that the young must be directed to music and must be educated in it.’

The power of music is subliminal and it will certainly not be of any great surprise that good music will hit the deepest chords of your crush’s heart and get the sparks flying. 

Make sure that you take some time off your schedule and search for some of the greatest singers and songs. Don’t pick the mainstream songs that almost everybody has listened to. Listen to some of the underrated artists and develop a good taste in music. 

4. Don’t hesitate to approach

Approachability is one of the attractive male characteristics which will set you apart from the lot. You might think that approachability on the man’s end is pretty old-fashioned and conventional. Women should also take some initiative and speak up about their wishes. 

You are right, however, when it comes to a long-term, meaningful relationship women would always look for a guy who is not afraid to approach, because it reflects that they are not scared of commitment.

5. Be physically strong and fit

Now, this is a truth universally acknowledged that any man who takes care of his body, has toned and strengthened muscles and also shows off his abs once in a while is extremely attractive to women. 

You don’t need to hit the gym to get physically strong and fit. You can do that at your home. Nevertheless, if you feel like it, you can hit the gym, but make sure that you do not grow gigantic muscles unless you need to. 

A balance is vital here. Just exercise enough to let her know that you take care of your body and you are capable of responsibilities. 

6. Grow a stubble

A well-groomed stubble is one of the most attractive male characteristics which never fails to impress the woman.

Women are also attracted to a full-grown beard as it echoes maturity, masculinity, aggression and dominance among men which are some of the prominent characteristics of handsome men. 

However, if you feel like grooming and maintaining a full-grown beard might be too much hassle for you, you can always start with light stubble.  

7. Be mindful

Mindfulness is one of the highly charismatic qualities women look for in a guy. Being mindful is all about being present in the moment, perceiving your feelings and emotions without reacting to them in any way, being aware of your surroundings and confidently expressing your feelings and emotions.  

By developing mindfulness, you will not only transform your dating life, but you will certainly gain more attention from people and your presence will be known. 

8. Don’t hesitate to show your sensitive side

Strip off all the bits of toxic masculinity that you have in you. You don’t have to put on the façade of being strong, tough and the ‘macho guy’ that society expects you. 

You will be surprised that this disguise is not only tiring for you to wear but also for the women that you meet in life. Be sensitive and understanding. 

Listen to them carefully and empathize with their problem. Sometimes, people don’t want to be loved or liked as much as they want to be understood in life. So, lend your ears to them without any ulterior motives and help them if you can. 

9. Take risks

Women are generally attracted to men who are bold, confident and courageous. They would want their men to take calculated risks in life, be it from business risks to adventurous ones. Now, mind you this does not imply that you do something completely foolhardy where your life is at stake. Not at all. Just small and subtle risks in your daily life will surely set you apart from the crowd. 

10. Make an impactful first impression

As the adage goes, ‘the first impression is the last impression.’ Be very diligent when you meet your date for the first time. Make sure that you think before you speak. If possible, tread on lighter topics. Controversial topics can increase the possibility of debates which is not good for the first date, at least.

These are some of the qualities women look for in a guy. Read each of them carefully and try to inculcate them in your personality. It will take time, patience and effort, but in the end, all will be worth it!
