Do guys find girls with brown eyes attractive or do they only love the ocean/ice blue eyes, stormy grey eyes or the rare green eyes?

I've always been self conscious of my eyes and I envy the girls who are sporting the glacial blue eyes, emerald eyes or hazel eyes, and my eyes look so plain next to them. My eyes are a chocolate brown although in the direct sunlight, they're a warm brown but at night, they're pitch black. I see guys drooling over the light eyed beauties and it makes me feel unacceptable to have a boyfriend. Can brown eyes be special as lighter eye colors or am I screwed in courtship?

  • It's very unimportant. Even though I love looking at peoples' eyes, the actual color doesn't really matter, there are just as many girls with dark brown eyes that I've thought were very attractive. It depends on everything else.

  • I know this is meant for guys, but as a girl with blue/grey eyes I would much prefer brown eyes. I think brown eyes are one of the most beautiful features a person could have. I love the colourings and different shades in brown eyes. There will be plenty of guys who like brown eyes out there, just like there are girls.

    • I just feel so ordinary because brown eyes are so common. Place a lass with sparking green or blue, or green blue, or grey eyes next to me, and a lot of guys would go after the light eyes. My eyes just reflect off a lot of things, making them shiny, but that's about it.

    • Maybe it depends where you live too then? Where I live its about half (majority population are Caucasian immigrants). I think its honestly just a random preference of which colour you like better and there are plenty of people out there who like both! :)

  • Sexual selection is indeed interesting. It really comes down to the local gene pool and can be influenced by the demographics, in this case by race, ethnicity and the cosmetic appearance within.

    By a sexological standard in most mammals, we humans want to mate with an individual that looks different than too the rest.

    So for example: If you live in an area where brown eyes is dominant and blue eyes making up a small minority, the minority would be fancied a lot by the masses, since the off-spring will have a more unique appearance.

    I also have a Chilean friend who I have discussed a similar issue with. In Denmark, he is extremely desired by many women due to his Hispanic traits, while he guaranteed that I would be overthrown by women in Chile due to my blond hair, blue eyes etc.

    • This guy is pretty good looking even with very basic shaped dark brown eyes and probably a lazy eye too, there is more to facial harmony than just features, its not like x+y+z features.

  • If something as trivial as eye color is the only thing you have to worry about, you must have it pretty good.

  • Brown is fine. I fell in love with brown eyes about the 1:27 mark on Joan Jett's video for Crimson and Clover.

    So, don't worry. If a guy likes you it really doesn't matter what color your eyes are.

  • I really like the light brown eyes.

    Blue and green are cool too though.

    I'm not that much into dark brown but whatever, it's just eye color. Face matters more than that.

  • Haha, no one really cares. Sure I like blue eyes, and blonde hair blue eyed short thick girls are usually my "type". But I don't let that affect who I date. My current girlfriend is mixed and her eye color is a lot like how you describe. I still love her eyes though. It's more about the shape for her than the color.

    But the short answer is no. Why not find a guy with similar eyes. Work with what ya got!

  • Eyes are only a plus.. that it. All it is is icing on the cake. A woman doesn't have to have a certain eye color to be gorgeous are beautiful. What makes her beautiful is the way she presents herself, her posture, she takes care of yourself and keeps herself up, her attitude and personality.

    As far as looks, if her eyes aren't gorgeous there are other traits that can easily be good like her lips, hair, smile, etc. pretty eyes are just a plus but she doesn't have to have it

    • If I were white, that would have been easy, but since I'm Asian, it would look unnatural on me.

    • I know a lot of Asians that use contacts. If you get the normal ones its not too bad.

  • Lots of guys like brown eyes

  • I don't know if I'm wrong, but my perception is that features like light coloured eyes are just bonuses when it comes to having an attractive face. I don't think light coloured eyes alone can make someone beautiful so I don't believe that not having them automatically makes you undesirable. In my eyes, its more of a cherry on top. Anyone can say if they disagree?

    • When I look at models and beautiful people, they always have the pretty light eyes and I see guys all over them. I just feel so bland next to them. No guy has been drooling over me.

    • Sweetheart, you don't need to feel bland! I mean, look at all the models and actresses in Hollywood that are considered beautiful that have dark eyes. Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Keira Knightley, Vanessa Hudgens, etc. I used to never have guys drooling over me. But I made a few changes to myself like putting time into caring and styling my hair, learning how to apply flattering makeup, wearing the correct clothes, but most importantly--becoming confident in my body.
