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?

Leggs – Good one…

Beware: I signed up to become a Mystery Shopper. Received a call for training, but they want your debit card number to cover the registration fee of $2.95 for training. Told them to go find some other chump. Who the heck is trained for a few hours at a cost of $2.95.

@kimmie ~ I have laughed over the show. I liked the episode when the valet gave them the wrong car and they went to the owner’s home only to have his wife come and beat the isht out that car. When the camera showed the full car, I was crying….

I watch it sometimes, Kimmie. Cam was cracking me up last night, trying to pick up women.

I have a friend who does Mystery Shopping in Savannah. I wish they’d sign me up to mystery shop a Midas; my brakes just started squealing and it is embarassing!!! I want to put a paper bag over it so no one knows it’s me coming through the parking deck. :oops:

Slim I did respond to you, but the blog ate my first one, and I don’t know what it didn’t like…honest. ;-) Anyway, I had steak there, and it was pretty tasty, seasoned well and cooked exactly the way I asked them to cook it. The service was good, and the live jazz was a nice addition.

Celisea My call wasn’t a visual, thank goodness. Sorry you had to be subjected to that. lol

Me too, Kimmie! When he was teaching the baby to clap whenever he said “adopted”….that was so funny, but so sweet.

Over the CAR, Leggs!! I’ve had it a couple of years, so even if I had a bag over my head the folks I work with still know whose car it is!! :lol:

Yeah the acoustics in the parking deck just amplify the sound…not that I know this because I’ve been gawked at in the parking garage for having breaks that sound like a MARTA train coming to a stop. lol

This day is dragging for everybody, it seems… I’ve been only semi-conscious all day. Flew to Ft. Lauderdale & back on Monday for a demo. Then off to L.A. Tuesday night for a 6-hour interview yesterday, then back into ATL last night & didn’t get to bed until about 3am. I need some crack.

Slim I personally don’t like Ray’s on the River. I’ve been a few times and had the same experience each time. I do like Legal’s Seafood though. Chops Lobster Bar in Buckhead is along the lines of Wildfire, and they’re pretty good. They slightly overcooked my steak once, but it was still very good. The scene makes for good conversation too, as there are lots of hot young chicks being wined and dined by these older wealthy guys. It’s pretty funny.

Yeah, I’d put Legal’s at the top of the list for seafood in Atlanta. Like you said, there are better places for ambiance, but not for seafood IMO.
