What really attracts a man?

There was a poll of about 20, 000 men to find out what they were attracted to. The results listed the top traits that most men put at the top for initial attraction:

1. Sexual chemistry
2. Smile
3. Kindness
4. Sense of humor
5. General body type
6. Eyes
7. Intelligence
8. Communication skills
9. Teeth/Lips
10. Hair

The list of traits that men are attracted to for “long term”:
1. Kindness
2. Sense of humor
3. Communication skills
4. Sexual prowess
5. Intelligence
6. Smile
7. Listening skills
8. Money/Wealth
9. General body type/fitness
10. Eyes

I have to admit, I expected body type to be at the very top but I am not surprised it’s listed in the top 10. Also, men are into eyes? Who knew! I believe that if women were polled, a lot of the same traits would be listed, but it is hard to predict how they would rank the traits.

Guys do you agree with the lists? Do you have others that should be placed on the list?

I think a lot of us are attracted to the same traits, but do we actually possess the traits we seek out? Do you think that what attracts you initially is similar to what you are attracted for the long term?

-“That is to say: I’d hope I’d be fine with just going without.” – New reality TV show, abc, a man his smoking jacket and tub of lotion.

-A new CD is out and it’s called “Blackfoote, Blackfoote Sangs” Now available at Fanga Hut!

“Which also means that I’ve become conditioned to sprout wood every time I see that SC State logo.”:
Me.LO.: Yo Swiss why don’t you fall thru and watch the game?
Swiss: Cool! I’ll bring the beer. Hey whose playing?
Me.LO: SC State!!

men lie, women lie: Dayum that’s cold. That’s all I got to say bout that.

Leggs – loving your 2:14, truer words have never been spoken. Being there is crucial in situations like that, stepping outside of ‘you’ for the person you love.

For Real – you are still crazy!! LOL!

Celisea – While dudes were wishing for pretty legs & smiles & stuff, they better hope they have someone to support them at a time of need, like if someone dies or takes seriously ill. All that cuteness flies out the window then!

That’s the latest discussion.

I’ve attended funerals of people I didn’t even know to show support for people I only considered acquaintances. So, a dude/chick you’re seeing who won’t support you in bereavement is really letting you know what they think of you.

Kimmie – You’re so right. I was reading the list and while I know some of that stuff is pertinent for some, having someone in your corner in the time of need don’t make the list until we’re facing situations. And a time of need ain’t limited to breavements and sickness.

@Celisea ~ did he tell you where he kept this piece of paper with the number for the past 12 years. Given 8 years have gone by, nothing sweet, all the way creepy.

kimmie – I don’t believe there is a way to block a cell phone.

Leggs – I just thought it was mighty strange that he still had that. I know that we used to have a box of things we did, momentos such as movie tickets, pictures of places we had been. So he told me he was cleaning and boxing some things up —-> ‘things’ being US. Apparently, he had pics and stuff of us still up around his house. So when he saw me and the new beau on fb pics, I guess he lost the thinking that he could mess around all this time and basically pick things back up with me when he got it ‘out of his system’.

For Real – You are so crazy!!! :lol:

Exiled – I would lie to say I didn’t care about the ex but I have no desire to be with him. I gave him 8+ years and that’s been capped out. No need to waste another 8 years to be in the same place we were 12 years ago. I am happy where I am and sending me a pic of my phone number is not raising any desire to get back with him. Me moving on is just going to be something he’ll have to find a way to deal with. I wish him well.

@Celisea ~ yes, I realized my mistake.

Leggs

November 3rd, 2011

It is strange he still had it…what’s even stranger is after all this time he still has pics and stuff of you two around the house. Took him seeing you with another to box things up.

@Ex ~ women aren’t the only one to sit in the corner and pine over someone.

I need a ma*ssage. My shoulders are tight, taunt and tensed. Anyone ever had an on-site ma*sseuse come to their home. A co-worker gave me the number of a repu*table one, but I don’t know who I won’t trust more, him or me (LOL)….
