What causes attraction? It depends on what your preference is whether you think he is the most handsome man in the world or not, but there are still some generalizations we can all agree on. Some men don’t even know they are hot. It could be the way he walks in a room that makes a man attractive.
Generally, women look for a long-term relationship with a man they can communicate with. If there’s a lack of communication, women move along. Makes sense to me, but we should know this before we enter into a relationship with a man, right?! This is why relationship experts recommend dating or getting to know someone before you have sex with them or take dating to the next level.
In 2011, around 120 men and women completed a study while attending the University of California at Berkeley. The participants were users of a dating site as a requirement of the study. Researchers prompted the response from people who were highly attractive individuals physically. The response was low.
Most women feel drawn to a man when they look at him as an equal. In other words, people are attracted to others who are equally as attractive as they are. However, we all like eye candy but just because we recognize someone as ‘fine’ or good looking, doesn’t mean we want to enter into a relationship with them.
“If you go for someone roughly [equal] to you in attractiveness, it avoids two things,” Nottingham Trent University psychologist Mark Sergeant, who was not involved with the study, told The Independent. “If they are much better-looking than you, you are worried about them going off and having affairs. And if they are much less attractive, you are worried that you could do better.” So with that said, what can you do to become the most handsome man in the world?
What Makes a Man Handsome?
There are some basic requirements that each gender looks for in a potential mate. Sometimes, physical attractiveness is nothing more than grooming and dressing neatly. Also, we consider body language as an attractive quality, which is why a guy who can talk with his eyes is more appealing than other handsome men.
Some women want a partner with a clean dental health record. Other people pay attention to the hip ratio between a man and a woman. Both feel it’s important mainly because it indicates a positive outcome for making babies.
Some women go coocoo for a man with long locks. I’m one of them. I prefer the man have dreadlocks, but he could have naturally curly or straight hair and I’d be in awe just as well. However, if you were to ask a woman what makes a man handsome, she’d say his personality. We can all agree that laughing is a great relief. So if you find that the man you think is the most attractive man alive is also a comedian, you are winning on so many levels it’s ridiculous.
Good Looking Men Do This
What makes a man attractive to one woman, another may find not so attractive. Such features as “Facial hair correlates not only with maturity and masculinity but also with dominance and aggression,” according to authors Barnaby J. Dixson and Robert C. Brooks. Here are other traits that research suggest:
- Men work out and have big muscles but most women won’t have long-term relationships with these men unless they work out
- The most handsome man in the world takes care of his health
- Some of the best looking men in the world cook
- Women find men with positive thoughts and attitudes attractive
- Men who are adventurous, but not high-risk takers
- Some women say the color red makes a man desirable
- Women think men who agree with their political views make the best looking guys
- Wear a suit and tie
- Women prefer men who want a long term relationship
- Women like men who laugh at their jokes
What attracts a man to a woman long-term? The same thing that does it for a woman. According to research, women want thoughtful men who engage in activities that help others.
They also love men who can have a meaningful conversation, but when they can have a debate without getting upset and throwing tantrums, it’s an attribute that carries over well. This guy is probably the most handsome man in the world.
