Now I'm sure this will somehow turn into me having high standards, when I just have preferences, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. There are just some parts of a guy that make me swoon. These are mostly physical features, while I'm more of a personality type of person, without a doubt. These aren't must haves, just bonus points. I'm constantly finding something else on a guy that wows me.
AGAIN:THESE AREN'T REQUIREMENTS, JUST THINGS I FIND ATTRACTIVE. SO SORRY IF IT'S CLICHE, BUT FUN FACT: HOT GUYS ARE HOT. Can't blame me there.
These are not in any specific order.
Something about a guy without a lot off texture in his hair. It's gorgeous. I have curly hair myself so that could be why. Loose curls, tight curls. It's all cute. Just a fluffy, mountain of curlies.
I've had a thing for guys with long hair for a while, so yes, I was totally for the man bun, now they make me roll my eyes but they encourage long hair so I can't hate them completely. Originally, I wasn't a fan of long hair but as I got older it won me over. One women it's very feminine, on men it's very masculine, like Tarzan. Is it for every guy? No. But the guys who do pull it off, thank you for existing. Now, if your hair and curly and long. Well, I'm done for.
Guys with a pout. Yes! Again, I think this is because I have fuller lips myself. Maybe that's where this is coming from? I just think it's so attractive. I'm a painter, primarily portraits so I study faces often. I think I look at everyone as if I was going to sketch out their face and then paint them. So bigger lips, just do something to me when I see them. You don't see it a lot either, so when a guy's got them, gosh. I'm not saying lip Kylie Jenner Challenge lips. Just ones that are a little plump.
Ehh *crunch, crunch* what's up, doc? Nice teeth for me doesn't equal straight. Clean equals nice. Sometimes wonky teeth are even more attractive. But I kind of like guys with big teeth, I'm not saying he looks like Mr. Ed's cousin. I don't know, I guess guys whose teeth that are the equivalent of a belt buckle. They're big and flashy. Not sure why.
I love thick eyebrows, on anybody. I don't mind if they're a little overgrown. I think it's rather cute. As long as you let me in there from time to time with an eyebrow razor so you don't start to look like King Bob from Recess. I always had big eyebrows growing up (so thankful now) so again, biased maybe? It also just looks kind of masculine.
Okay, something I don't have! Long eyelashes are seen as kind of girly but I always notice guys tend to have more of them anyway. I love seeing a guy whose eyes are just embroidered with tiny, spider-leggy hairs. I might just like facial hair of all sorts. Often when I see a girl with thick and/or long lashes, I'm super jealous. I've always wanted them (I've started a treatment for them overnight and it's been pretty effective), so they're harder to admire, but on a guy, I see them and think "Do I want his lashes, or him?"
This one is a little weird but I've heard it from other people too. I don't know if it's just seeing their muscular arms when they raise them or what. Is it the hair? Maybe? I do enjoy body hair. I think it's the arms. Why are armpits sexy?! I can't figure it out but they do make you want to put your face real close to them...this one has got me confused.
There is just something warm and comfy about brown eyes. Okay, I'm guilty again, I have brown eyes too. Light eyes are gorgeous too but they just lack the coziness. I see brown eyes on guys and literally envision sitting in little nook covered in blankets. They're like hot coffee. I don't know, man, I don't know. Brown-eyed boys, thanks for warming my cold heart.
There is just something so attractive about a guy with good circulation. It's more of cute than anything, like you want to pinch his cheeks. It's babyish. I don't see this one on many guys. P.S. This guy looks like my past crush quite a bit, if my crush had been more modelish. So I had to pick him, you understand.)
You've heard it a million times so what's one more. I know it's upsetting if you don't have one when people go on and on, and you've chewed all the gum you can, cause if a guy has a sharp jawline, it doesn't matter what the rest of his face looks like, he's hot now. I'm kidding, kinda. High cheekbones have a special place in my heart too. I have high cheekbones but more like the apple kind. I look like a cartoon character, less like a model. Like if you hug a male friend with high cheekbones and they bump the side of your face and they're just hard as rock...that's weird but I like it. Jawlines/Cheekbones aren't everything, they definitely aren't necessary to be deemed as hot, but I'm not gonna lie about it, they look good.
This list could go on, this is limited to just physical features, mostly above the neck. Yes, I realize a lot of the guys I used are considered handsome by many regardless of what I stated about them. This is the internet, models are prevalent. Friendly reminder: Hot guys are hot. Models are also what I use as reference photos when sketching as well, so I'm familiar with quite few so it made picking my photos easier. This guys I like don't really look like this at all.
I am also not speaking for ANYBODY but myself. So don't do that thing where you're like "Typical woman who want men who...blah blah blah" or "Women are so shallow but..." or that "Nice guys..." okay, none of that. I realized I can't win here because regardless of what you say on GAG, someone will crawl out from under the stairs they live under and lift their Dorito dust covered finger and start picking shit apart cause somebody hurt their feelings in high school and now that's my fault.
They're models, I'm not scouting out guys who look like this...especially where I live. I'm just talking about those boys I see and think "Are you real?" It's also just traits that I see on guys ALL THE TIME, and I greatly appreciate. So yeah there are plenty more and maybe I'll make a another take to extend it. I also plan to make a list on personality traits that I favor, cause that's what really matter, am I right? Maybe one on clothing. Guys got more to offer than their mugs. I'm not that shallow...
Thank you for reading!
