Have you any idea when you catch a man checking you out or giving you the subtle once-over, what traits he is subconsciously looking at and finding attractive? Have you ever considered what the preferences most men have, or are there a specific set of things that men find more attractive? Well as it turns out, there's a scientific formula to their once-over, without them even necessarily knowing they are doing it. They're looking for specific features in a woman that, if recognized, will instantly deem them more attractive. Below is a list of things that in general men look for when looking for a partner. The subconscious can work in strange ways.
1. Big Lips
A study found that men spent a lot of time looking at women's lips and women with fuller lips are often more attractive. Add some red lipstick to the mix, and you'll drive them crazy!.
2. Shiny Hair
A vast majority of men prefer women with long hair. A woman with shiny, long glowing hair is more attractive to men.
3. Big Bright Eyes
Though the color of the eyes doesn't seem to be as important, research has shown that men find larger eyes to be more appealing and more attractive. Men connect big eyes to femininity, health, and fertility.
4. Big Smile
A woman's smile sends a signal to men that she is a positive and an approachable person.
The hips of a woman will grab a mans attention whether they like to admit it or not. Their specific shape is seen as a connection between health and reproductive abilities. According to the study described in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the vast majority of the surveyed men admitted that they at first pay attention to this area.
By pheromones, we communicate non-verbally with another person. According to research, menstrual cycle effects on pheromones' emissions in women. Depending on the time of the cycle she will be more attractive or less attractive to a man.
As it happens, men not only consider women's looks but also how a woman sounds. Smithsonian magazine suggests that women with a higher voice are considered more attractive to men because they associate with youth and hence fertility.
