    What makes a man handsome is a smile and a good sense of humor. Of course they should never have a belly hanging out of their paints or butt showing when they bend over but looks are not really so important as who the man is.

    Inner confidence.  When he is comfortably enough in his own skin to be himself.

    Good question, let me go ask my wife.  That didn't help, she doesn't know either.

    That smile from the heart!  And the sound of his lovely voice
    and the smell of fresh air in his hair
    and an aura of humor and calm,
    a quick witty remark,
    beautiful hands.   His gestures.  How he moves his body.
    His benevolence, which radiates from the lines on his face...any kind of a face!
    As long as its a face I'm attracted to.
    It's to do with attraction.
    And I love a face that's 'lived in'!!!
    So enjoyed this question.  Thanks,

    A quiet confidence and an unassuming sense of humour that produces a twinkle in his eyes...Oh and the fact that he doesn't seem to realise just how attractive he is.....

    A handsome man doesn't have to look perfect, but he definitely needs to look well kept, which means that his skin, nails and teeth should look healthy, he shouldn't be overweight, he should always smell good. A nice smile and a good sense of humor can make a man really attractive. He definitely needs to have an inner confidence, but at the same time he should be humble and not think too highly of himself. Also, women love men who are good listeners and having this quality can be seen as attractive.

    His perosnality shining through his eyes and his lips, his smile. My husband got me with his pursed lip, the eyes sparkling at me and his strong posture.

    hmmm....I don't really know why sometimes I would evaluate that a certain man is handsome. But I think his clean-look adds to the point, on how he carries himself comfortably but not arrogantly, most of all, the light that coming from his inner being- a brightness on his appearance that determines what kind of personality he has and the look on his eyes at a quick glance, on how he seems thinking so deeply, pondering over something so seriously to the point that his brows brings a bit shadow on his eyes, but if he sees something that pleases him, the look would be gone in a second and he would smile so radiantly, so gentle though the look of him having a great wisdom would never waver.

    Some men are most handsome when they let their personality shine. Some men are most handsome when they don't speak at all. Some men are physically handsome, but mentally exhausting. And, some men are so genuinely humble that it reflects a light that can be defined as "handsome". Handsome is in the eye of the beholder. There is no definitive answer.

    Physical features are only a small part of what makes a man handsome in my opinion. I think his kindness, his manners, his warmth, and genuineness makes a man handsome. (I do like a nice smile, two eyebrows, and twinkling eyes though). smile

    Honestly, I have no idea. I think handsome depends on the woman looking at the man. I think every womans eyes seek out a different handsome. It all goes along with mating, whoever a woman things would make attractive babies with her-even if she doesn't want kids, it's just en grained in the brain to look for that.

    For example plenty of women find Brad Pitt and Patrick Dempsey amazingly handsome. But I'm more interested in the men that everyone isn't finding attractive.

    Probably doesn't help you any, but that's my input!

    What makes a man handsome?

    The answer is, the view of himself that he has in his mind -- and that only applies to those men who believe that it is important to be "handsome."

    I would have to say personality that includes a good sense of humor and a nice smile is always good. Most important would be having a kind heart.

    Handsome is how a man presents himself physcially. Clean cut, well dressed, teeth brushed, in shape (not slobbish).  But I would have to say that looks are not always something to look for in a man. Looks can be decieving. A man that is himself and presents himself how he actually is, is important instead of hiding who he really is. Not sure what your looking for as an answer to this question, but handsome to me means appearence.

    If a guy has a cool attitude, is decent ,has good manners, has confidence and knows how to speak well, I guess it can make him look handsome at least for teenage girls.

    His light shines so bright
    He touches my soul with all his might
    He kisses my heart with Love so deep
    Baby let's fly, oh it's so sweet...

    I think what men don't understand is that women are less visual than men. How a man is and meets her needs makes him more handsome than six-pack abs and a chiseled face worthy of GQ.

    But that's NOT to say that a man can go all "to hell" with his physical appearance just because he's charming. Good grooming and a personal style is important.

    One thing I notice in Europe is how men take their grooming seriously. Unless they're homeless, men don't leave the house in dirty clothes, a t-shirt hanging out, jeans hanging down, butt crack showing,  etc. Coming home is always a culture shock, realizing how American men (and many women) have become slobs.

    This isn't superficial, it's just that women look at someone and gather information: Hmmm, slob? He doesn't care much about himself, will probably be needy, maybe he lives in his parents' basement, he probably forgot to brush his teeth, etc.

    Women still like manners too.

    Even if we may drool and blush at the GQ guy on the street, it doesn't mean that's what we'll find sexy for more than 1/2 hour!

    I would have to say it would be his smile. A nice smile lights up his entire face and seems to add this beautiful energy to his entire being. There is nothing quite like it.

    A handsome man is one who carries himself with dignity, honor, and unassuming strength.  There is nothing like being in the presence of a powerful man, one who knows his inner and outer strength,  yet knows when to appropriately use it.  A man with freedom and joy in his soul, shows a light in his eyes, that no physical feature can compare.  A man with a personal code of honor, is a free man, an untouchable man, who holds something no one can take from him.  In a culture that promotes effeminate traits in men, a masculine man who embraces his manhood is beyond handsome.
