Do we really know what traits men find important in a woman? Is it the usual cliche; bums & boobs, long hair and nails? Does it matter whether they are real or fake? Well, why don’t we ask them and find out. I thought we’d get the male perspective on all things ‘woman’, so enjoy the responses below:
WHAT DO YOU FIND ATTRACTIVE IN A WOMAN OTHER THAN THEIR PHYSICAL APPEARANCE??
Visually a woman should have a look that reflects her personality I have always been attracted to strong woman. Curvy figure adds extra value and is always well received – HH – East London
The way she looks and dress & talks – OC, South London
Eyes and caring personality – AW, South London
Starts with appearance everything else doesn’t matter – ES, South London
Humour, intelligence and sassiness – not sure that’s a word but for me represents a confidence with style not arrogance – NK, Kent
Common sense, sense of humour and the ability to fend for herself – JM, South London
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT WOMEN MISREPRESENT IF THEY WEAR FALSE NAILS, LASHES OR HAIR?
No I don’t, its a fact of enhancement – HH, East London
Yes in some cases women over do it , it can be a put off – OC, South London
At the start, yes….have no problem with those things as long as I see a woman before all that is applied etc – AW, South London
No – ES, South London
No, I don’t think it misrepresents them – NK, Kent
No it’s up to the individual but if it’s over the top it can be a turn off – JM, South London
DO YOU LIKE THE LOOK OF A WOMAN THAT WEARS ANY OF THE ABOVE?
Yes I do providing it suits the overall look the woman in question is going for – HH, East London.
If it looks good and it makes them feel good, that’s fine – OC, South London
Hmmm not all of it together…. – AW, South London
Not an issue – ES, South London
Yeah, don’t mind them but there are caveats such as not like Amy winehouse lashes and I’m not sure of the reasons for some hair extensions, weaves etc just seem a little unnecessary – NK, Kent
I wouldn’t say I look for it but if she looks good it’s not a problem – JM, South London
DO YOU HAVE ANY PREFERENCE AS TO HOW WOMEN WEAR THEIR HAIR?
I have a preference for long hair, natural or otherwise. It takes a certain type of woman to carry off the natural look without feeling pressured to follow the flock – HH, East London.
No, just must have a good style – OC, South London
Nope, as long as it looks presentable, neat and clean – AW, South London
Yes, like long straight hair – ES, South London
Not really. Preference for slightly shorter hair but no real opinion – NK, Kent
No different styles suit different people – JM, South London
MOST MEN WILL CLAIM TO LIKE A WOMAN WHOSE ‘ALL NATURAL’ BUT THE WOMEN THEY TEND TO DATE OR WHO THEY LOOK AT ON THE STREET, ARE RARELY ‘NATURAL’ SO DO GUYS JUST ‘LIKE’ THE IDEA OF A NATURAL WOMAN?
Natural for me encompasses more than looks, its everything that makes a women who can be comfortable in her own skin even it that means fake nails, eyelashes – HH, East London
I like all styles. Natural is good – OC, South London
They probably do….but rarely does it happen like that – AW, South London
Yes, it’s just an idea – ES, South London
I think it’s a fundamental misunderstanding of ‘natural’. I think blokes think that’s what girls want to hear – “you don’t need any make-up, you’re beautiful enough” but subtle make-up, hair etc won’t be picked up (we’re that blind sometimes) but essentially if you look great that’s OK by us – NK, Kent
I think that’s about right, men talk about “natural women” but I think they truly want one. They want their woman to look good and sexy – JM, South London
WOULD ANY OF THE FOLLOWING DETER YOU FROM DATING A WOMAN: SIZE, COLOUR, CREED, RELIGION??
To be honest size would be a determining factor, with a concern to the rest?….let variety be the spice of life – HH, East London
Bad manners, rudeness/being ignored – OC, South London
No, barring religion – AW, South London
Size might be an issue… – ES, South London
Only one that might make me pause is size – Overweight doesn’t do it for me – The rest I am more than happy with – NK, Kent
Yes size would deter me from dating, I don’t date large women I find it a turn off. I’m fine with all religions but I would not change mine to be with a woman – JM, South London
DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL WOMAN (If you could create her?)
Ideal woman? Tough!!…. Good friend, great lover, tough but tender (tell me off if I step out of line but tender enough to forgive), good with kids, and more importantly always has a place in her heart for me – HH, East London
Loving/ upstanding/ caring/supportive/ pretty / and a friend/ like my girlfriend and you – OC, South London
No such thing as an ideal woman, beauty is in the eye of the beholder – ES, South London
Ooh jeez…….between 5′ & 5’8, curves but toned (or athletic works as well!), brunette – this is difficult because it sounds all very ‘Nuts’ magazine but I guess those are the majority of my girlfriends have looked like…..not many blondes! – NK, Kent
My ideal woman (in the perfect world) would be a few years younger then me just shorter then me (in heels) good looking with a sexy body. A career woman with lots of ambition and financially independent. No more than 2 children (none would be great), colour and race don’t really matter but she must have a great sense of humour – JM, South London
