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?

He may not even be pining, just sitting over there plotting to see if he can get to her and make her weak at the knees…

Leggs – I think that him having pics up of me was just a ploy for the chicks he deals with to see he’s not looking to get serious with them, only to get Busy with them. lol (and I’m not even kidding) Plus I could never understand why a chick would mess with a dude who had pics of some random chick around his house…

Mo – Exactly…no such thing as going to the shop and having it done. You got braids done at home. My kid hair was almost to her waist before her perm and I use to braid her hair. Folks would as if a shop did it. Ut uh, I got the phone book (or in her case, the chair to her table and chairs…tea time), put in a movie and braided away…lol

Foe Real – i’m not sure I could handle 17 seconds of anything with you. I’d probably wake up hanging upside down in a tree with 12 bangles around my ankles, a banana peel in my pocket and a melted snickers bar stuck to my back.

Okay on this call….why are folks so quick to want to “escalate” on other folks. That mess is just wrong. Everybody tryna sell their own self all the while selling out others. Dang shame.

Sorry, just heard some of these biddies tryna sell their own product

Yeah that’s kinda cute but more on the creepy side since he sent a pic… Just hope he wasn’t playing Breathe Again in the background.

Side note: Vivica might have to pull a Halle and find her a stud for a baby daddy since her and her boy candy Slim broke up….

Slim?

Ur attempt to explain why u don’t want him but still caring for him is the reason why most savvy men don’t close deals with exes.

U such caring species!

O/T

a day like today,weatherwise, is when a single and Independent chic tosses that rabbit away in frustrastion coz it just can’t give her that warm coziness in the covers she needs.

Ogh well!

What’s wrong, Ex…you whimpering because you won’t be called on from one of those single independent chicks. Sure, Queen is your rock, but you shouldn’t even be thinking about this whether an independent single chicks (lol)…

swiss – For whatever reason, I just pictured you saying Indeeeeed with your pinky up to the corner of your mouth like Austin Powers. The only difference is, instead of a Mini Me next to you, your stiff towel shares the seat beside you.
