What makes a man more desirable?
7 Weird Traits That Make Men Attractive
As a scientific phenomenon, attractiveness is only seldom predicted. Think about these seven atypical traits if you want to increase your sexual appeal with the right kind of girl.
When you look in the mirror as a male, do you ever wonder, «Am I attractive?» Continue reading if that’s the case. Most men lament that they have no idea what qualities a woman seeks in a mate. Nevertheless, many attractive women are seen with bizarre-looking men. Did you realize that having good eyes, a strong jawline or even a birthmark like New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees might be more desirable to women than a whole body makeover?
Research has demonstrated that predicting the science of attraction is challenging. Sex attraction relies heavily on a person’s physical appearance and emotional connection. Like every other human emotion, the appeal has biological and psychological roots. It might be challenging to differentiate between chemical and physiological processes. It’s feasible to hit it up with a serial killer who favors using axes.
The eyes have been demonstrated to be the most crucial organ in several scientific research. The most attractive physical feature for both sexes is a large, round pupil. This is more enticing than a gorgeous face, a friendly voice, or a pleasant aroma. Because an aroused person’s iris darkens and their pupil dilates. Both sexes, at least subconsciously, respond positively to this arousal signal.
The whites of the eyes (sclera) are just as crucial as the colorful components of the eye when it comes to attracting the opposite sex. Many people attribute positivity, health, and attractiveness to those who have whiter (as opposed to redder) sclera. Another advantage of going to bed early is avoiding the strain on your eyes that comes with getting up early.
Women prefer guys with a dark limbal ring. The iris and sclera meet at the intersection known as the limbal ring. Black people may have trouble seeing the iris’s round outer edge. A study by researchers at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg found that women rated men with black limbal rings as more attractive and healthier. The loss of phalanx rings with age may be interpreted as a sign of declining vitality and health, qualities that are essential for successful reproduction. Thicker and darker limb rings may be seen in infants and early toddlers.
If you are curious about what else attracts women, you should familiarize yourself with these physical and emotional traits that may increase your sex appeal.
Girls Dig a Stone-Cold Mug.
Researchers found that women favored males who carried themselves with pride over those who were just pleased. One thousand individuals ranked the sexual attractiveness of photographs of men.
Evildoers are masters of seduction and flattery when getting what they want. This appeals to a specific segment of the female population. Both male and female sexes have an innate desire for leadership roles.
The Sexual Allure of a Robust Immune System and a Square Jawline
If your immune system is powerful, you could be more attractive to potential partners. More testosterone, fewer stress chemicals, and stronger immune systems are seen in men with strong jawlines. The study was published in Nature Communications. This hormone chemistry may work in favor of guys, making them more appealing to females.
In general, Fitness is what Makes men Attractive.
According to data collected from 66 interviews with heterosexual couples, ovulating women find men with powerful chins and brows more attractive. The scientists propose that solid face characteristics, linked to more robust genes, make a mate more attractive.
Weight, in addition to impressive qualities, may be desirable, according to recent research published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. In this study, women preferred men with solid jawlines, but they cared more about a man’s physical fitness level than his perceived level of masculinity. A possible explanation is that prior research also found women prefer men with robust immune systems.
Strong moral Fiber is a Sure way to Attract Female Attention.
Women were more likely to like men described as «generous.» Compassionate and beautiful, these men get top marks from the ladies for severe relationships and casual hookups. Women want a man who tells the truth and follows through on his promises. Reliability, responsibility, and accountability will fortify a man’s character so that he can keep his promises in marriage.
Facial Scars Maintain Interest in Women
The birthmark on New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ face might give him an edge with the ladies. A total of 147 female participants were surveyed about their preferences in sexual partners with and without facial scars. Most girls favored males who had scars on their faces.
Feeling stifled or bored, women are more likely to attract bad boys. In popular culture, the bad-boy archetype is idealized and glamorized; taking risks may be thrilling. Don’t sign up for dueling courses; women only wanted you for a one-night stand.
A love of Learning is Essential for a Lasting Partnership.
Female participants in a study evaluating males in linguistic and physical activities rated the more intelligent, more imaginative men as more attractive.
This trend started when men like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates became successful and famous. It has been shown that ugly people find it simpler to create long-term relationships and that they get more happiness from them. If women see you as a geek, they may assign nerdy qualities to you, making you more desirable to them. A lifetime of anxiety and misery is the result of irresponsible handling of one’s finances.
An Attractive Person’s charm comes from Their Extraordinary Personality.
The the old stereotype that «he had a tremendous personality» meant he was ugly no longer holds true; a charismatic person is more appealing to others.
Researchers asked participants to rate the attractiveness of people of the opposite sex in two settings: before and after they learned more about the subjects’ characteristics. Photos that were previously linked with desirable traits, such as honesty and helpfulness, were more attractive when they were combined with a negative quality, and the reverse was also true.
Dude, She’s (Exactly 25 Percent) Out of Your League
A massive new study of online dating finds that everyone dates aspirationally—and that a woman’s desirability peaks 32 years before a man’s does.
August 10, 2018
You’re at a party and you see someone cute across the room. They glance at you, maybe even smile for a second, then carry on with their conversation. You feel the room shrink, your heart rate quicken, your face go red: You’re crushing on this stranger, hard. But then the sensible part of your brain tells you to forget it: That person’s way, way out of your league.
Wait a second, you counter: Do dating “leagues” even exist?
At this point, Elizabeth Bruch, a professor of sociology at the University of Michigan, crashes in to your thought process (and this news article). Yep, she says. Leagues do seem to exist. But you’re not alone in trying to escape yours: “Three-quarters, or more, of people are dating aspirationally,” she says. And according to a new study, users of online-dating sites spend most of their time trying to contact people “out of their league.”
In fact, most online-dating users tend to message people exactly 25 percent more desirable than they are.
Bruch would know. She’s spent the past few years studying how people make decisions and pursue partners on online-dating sites, using exclusive data from the dating sites themselves. “There’s so much folk wisdom about dating and courtship, and very little scientific evidence,” she told me recently. “My research comes out of realizing that with these large-scale data sets, we can shed light on a lot of these old dating aphorisms.”
In the new study, published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, Bruch and her colleagues analyzed thousands of messages exchanged on a “popular, free online-dating service” between more than 186,000 straight men and women. They looked only at four metro areas—New York, Boston, Chicago, and Seattle—and only at messages from January 2014.
Imagine for a second that you are one of the users Bruch and her colleagues studied—in fact, imagine that you are a very desirable user. Your specific desirability rank would have been generated by two figures: whether other desirable people contacted you, and whether other desirable people responded when you contacted them. If you contacted a much less desirable person, their desirability score would rise; if they contacted you and you replied, then your score would fall.
The team had to analyze both first messages and first replies, because, well, men usually make the first move. “A defining feature of heterosexual online dating is that, in the vast majority of cases, it is men who establish the first contact—more than 80 percent of first messages are from men in our data set,” the study says. But “women reply very selectively to the messages they receive from men—their average reply rate is less than 20 percent—so women’s replies … can give us significant insight about who they are interested in.”
The team combined all that data by using the PageRank algorithm, the same software that helps inform Google’s search results. It found that—insofar as dating “leagues” are not different tiers of hotness, but a single ascending hierarchy of desirability—then they do seem to exist in the data. But people do not seem universally locked into them—and they can occasionally find success escaping from theirs.
The key, Bruch said, is that “persistence pays off.”
“Reply rates [to the average message] are between zero percent and 10 percent,” she told me. Her advice: People should note those extremely low reply rates and send out more greetings.
Michael Rosenfeld, a professor of sociology at Stanford University who was not connected to this study, agreed that persistence was a good strategy. “The idea that persistence pays off makes sense to me, as the online-dating world has a wider choice set of potential mates to choose from,” he told me in an email. “The greater choice set pays dividends to people who are willing to be persistent in trying to find a mate.”
Of the study as a whole, he said: “I think its conclusions are robust and its methodologies are sound.”
Yet what also emerges from the data is a far more depressing idea of “leagues” than many joking friends would suppose. Across the four cities and the thousands of users, consistent patterns around age, race, and education level emerge. White men and Asian women are consistently more desired than other users, while black women rank anomalously lower.
Bruch said that race and gender stereotypes often get mixed up, with a race acquiring gendered connotations. “Asian is coded as female, so that’s why Asian women get so much market power and Asian men get so little,” she told me. “For black men and women, it’s the opposite.”
But “what we are seeing is overwhelmingly the effect of white preferences,” she cautioned. “This site is predominantly white, 70 percent white. If this was a site that was 20 percent white, we may see a totally different desirability hierarchy.”
“Other people have done research using data from online-dating sites, and found similar racial and gender hierarchies,” said Rosenfeld, the Stanford professor.
And Bruch emphasized that the hierarchy did not just depend on race, age, and education level: Because it is derived from user behavior, it “captures whatever traits people are responding to when they pursue partners. This will include traits like wittiness, genetic factors, or whatever else drives people to message,” she said.
Here are seven other not entirely happy takeaways from Bruch’s study:
— In the study, men’s desirability peaks at age 50. But women’s desirability starts high at age 18 and falls throughout their lifespan.
How Age Affects Online-Dating Desirability Among Heterosexual Men and Women
“I mean, everybody knows—and as a sociologist, it’s been shown—that older women have a harder time in the dating market. But I hadn’t expected to see their desirability drop off from the time they’re 18 to the time they’re 65,” Bruch told me.
“But I was also surprised to see how flat men’s desirability was over the age distribution,” she said. “For men, it peaks around age 40 or 50. Especially in New York.”
— New York is a men’s market, at least according to this particular study.
It’s not just that older men are considered most desirable in New York.
“New York is a special case for men,” Bruch told me. “It’s the market with the highest fraction of women. But it’s also about it being an incredibly dense market.”
— Seattle is a women’s market—and also the only place where men succeed by sending longer opening messages.
“Seattle presents the most unfavorable dating climate for men, with as many as two men for every woman in some segments,” the study says.
Across all four cities, men and women generally tended to send longer messages to people who were more desirable than them. Women, especially, deployed this strategy.
But the only place it paid off—and the only people for whom it worked with statistically significant success—were men in Seattle. The longest messages in the study were sent by Seattle men, the study says,“and only Seattle men experience a payoff to writing longer messages.”
— Women’s prospects dim not only as they age, but as they achieve the highest level of education.
A more educated man is almost always more desirable, on average: Men with postgraduate degrees outperform men with bachelor’s degrees; men with bachelor’s degrees beat high-school graduates.
“But for women, an undergraduate degree is most desirable,” the study says. “Postgraduate education is associated with decreased desirability among women.”
How Education Affects Online-Dating Desirability Among Heterosexual Men and Women
— Men did not find more success when they sent happy messages.
Across all four cities, men tended to use less positive language when messaging more desirable women. They may have stumbled upon this strategy through trial and error because “in all four cities, men experience slightly lower reply rates when they write more positively worded messages.”
— Almost no one messages users less desirable than they are.
Most people seem to know their position on the hierarchy because they most contact people who rank the same. “The most common behavior for both men and women is to contact members of the opposite sex who on average have roughly the same ranking as themselves,” Bruch and her colleagues write.
But the overall distribution is skewed because “a majority of both sexes tend to contact partners who are more desirable than themselves on average—and hardly any users contact partners who are significantly less desirable.”
— Your online-dating experience is not as bad as this poor woman’s in New York.
“The most popular individual in our four cities, a 30-year-old woman living in New York, received 1504 messages during the period of observation,” the study says. This is “equivalent to one message every 30 min, day and night, for the entire month.” Yikes.
What Are the Physical Attributes That Make Men More Attractive, According to Science?
Have you ever wondered why some men seem to have all the luck in the dating and romance departments and you don’t? It’s been repeated endlessly that looks aren’t everything. But when it comes to attracting the interest of others, it matters! Here’s the latest from the Height Lengthening team on which physical characteristics are scientifically proven to make men more attractive and keep them in high demand on the dating scene and professionally.
Wear the Clothes, Don’t Let Them Wear You
Ever heard the saying that clothes and shoes define the man? Well, it’s true! Men are viewed as more attractive, masculine and successful when they dress the part. Spending a fortune on expensive clothing brands is unnecessary to make a good impression on others. However, you should make a reasonable investment in your wardrobe, so you have clothes that complement your best physical features and enhance your appeal to the masses.
Take time to coordinate your outfits and upgrade your footwear and accessories so you can create the image you want others to see instead of leaving things to chance. Wear colors that exude power and masculinity, like red.
Symmetrical and Proportional Physical Features are a Must
Body proportions are important, and when it comes to men, the more symmetry, the better. Scientifically speaking, body proportions have long been associated with physical health and development. Imbalances and mismatches are exceedingly common (limb discrepancies, mismatched torso, lower extremities, etc.).
Studies show men with wide, broad shoulders, long legs, and a proportional torso and weight-to-height ratio are on par with the average person’s idea of masculinity and attractiveness. Body symmetry and masculinity are linked.
Sadly, we can’t choose the bodies we were born with, but cosmetic procedures like height lengthening surgery and products make it easier for some to achieve their ideal perfection than others. Most store-bought products are temporary and do little to permanently erase personal insecurities and self-esteem. Then there are long-lasting and, in some cases, permanent cosmetic surgeries like height lengthening that are extremely effective in remodeling the proportions of the body so men can have the chiseled, sexy, musclebound physiques they desire.
It’s All About That Bass, Voice That Is
Studies show that men with deep voices are more sexually appealing and physically desirable than those with higher pitched voices. No one knows why men with deep, bass voices are perceived as more masculine and attractive to the opposite sex. But, limited evidence suggests that a deep baritone voice is a quality widely associated with large, aggressive, muscular, and protective men.
Reach for the Sky With Height or Get Left Behind
It’s no secret that short men are not as appealing to women or society as their tall counterparts, but much of this is due to stigmas, assumptions, and personal preferences. Sadly, short men have a higher burden to carry when it comes to attracting romantic interest from others. They are also more likely to be deemed passive, less aggressive, not as intelligent, and less masculine.
Before the development of surgical height lengthening techniques, there weren’t many avenues for men to turn to make themselves taller. Although they could, and many still do today, rely on shoe lifts and clothing alterations to give the illusion of height and tallness, these methods do little to alleviate the accompanying personal shame and lack of self-esteem and body confidence many live with.
These temporary measures are completely ineffective in the bedroom, giving rise to heightened body dysmorphic and performance anxiety issues due to persistent feelings of inadequacy. Height lengthening surgery is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures among males today. Many individuals get the procedure because they want to overcome their height insecurities and improve their attractiveness to the opposite sex. It’s also hard to ignore the additional advantages it offers, in terms of financial and professional success.
Pump Up the Muscle, Ripples, Bulges and All
Historically, large, defined muscles have been attributed to powerful, sexy, and successful men. Before modern society, the average male spent most of their time hunting, protecting, and engaging in physical activities that increased their muscle mass. Also, most men had time to work out and commit to diet tactics designed to maximize their muscular proportions.
Sadly today, due to various personal, work, and societal obligations, many people who are not genetically gifted with a chiseled physique no longer have the time or interest for strenuous or intensive workouts and dietary restrictions in hopes of muscles that may or may not develop in a timely manner or to personal expectations.
Now, thanks to cosmetic surgery, health and muscle-building supplements, and the development of more efficient bodybuilding practices, the average male can beef up their body to attract the female or partner of their dreams with less stress and effort.
At the end of the day, your image of perfection is what you make it. If you have physical features that you aren’t feeling too confident about and you’re interested in enhancing, it might be time for you to consider cosmetic procedures. Height lengthening surgery can help you look more attractive and increase your personal and professional opportunities.
There’s No Time Like the Present
Being hot and attractive isn’t for the weak or weary. Regardless of how anyone goes about getting the physical characteristics they desire to improve their sex appeal and relationship status, one thing is certain: appearance means everything! Do what’s necessary to enhance and protect yours!
