What Do You Like Most About The Opposite Sex
Some people have instant chemistry, while others may grow on you with their unique character. Some are just downright "Leave me alone". What's an instant hit for you when it comes to the opposite sex?
I like a confident and sexy guy with a goal in life and to know what he wants from life the life who is true to himself and others.
Thanks dde! I think that confidence is def. a good quality to have. However, some men are confident but don't make good 1st impressions. How can they get around those initial jitters to show whom they really are b4 it's too late with a women?
Breatheasy, sorry to butt in here, but that picture of Yin Yang is incomplete. It should have a little of the opposite in each bulge area.
Amazing philosophy in this, and worth looking up on the Internet.
Could not agree more with your opinion regarding Yin and Yang. I chose that symbol for myself for a very good reason.
....and I have so little to do with the opposite sex that your question alludes me. It's not that I am anti-, but there is really no deep connection.
I agree Jonny! My goal was to attract constructive criticism, even with choosing the "right" picture. I guess it worked..lol. I did find a yin/yang pic that you speak of, but thought this one would be more engaging. Really appreciate your comment
Personally, I like someone who is fun and wants to make me laugh till I cry, communicates with me honestly and frequently, supports what I do and is genuinely caring. And I want them to want the same from me.
All that comes into the package of how much attention someone is giving you and how much attention they want you to give to them.
The "Leave me alone" is a heart breaker, especially when all you want to do is not leave them alone (of course, giving someone space as well is important). But a relationship goes both ways, there is give and take on both sides. When it isn't balanced, the yearning you feel may be left wanting.
The one quality I look for in the opposite sex is their capacity to treat others the way they themselves would want to be treated.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
I am not religious (actually agnostic), but that principle is key to me.
I call the underlying quality integrity.
I easily get attracted with physical appearance. This includes the eyes, lips, and the hair. But what makes me interested in knowing here would be character.
I like the way I can wear his jeans as long as I have a belt, borrow his socks, and even grab his hat if I need to as I run out the door ... but he can only fit into his own clothes. lol.
I like the softer side of a woman.. the naturing side as well.. yeah
I love men and for me, as far as physical attraction, it is just about everything that attracts me to them; the way they stand, the way they walk. Anything that is uniquely masculine draws my attention initially. I like very manly men.
I've met some wonderful, well mannered men in my life and I've always been attracted to men who took care of themselves, dressed well, and had good manners.
First, they must take care of themselves: no smoking, no doing drugs, be in decent shape physically, shave daily, have clean teeth, not smell, and dress well (no holes, tears, rips or stains on clothes and look like they made an effort when they woke up). You can tell most of that just by looking at a man and talking to him for five minutes.
Second, they must have manners: hold my door, wait for me, and mind their cursing around me. I realize men can be nasty with each other - like spitting, cussing and picking their teeth - but if they do it with me, it's over before it started. That's the opposite of attractive. You can tell most of that on the first date. I never sleep with a man unless I've seen what he does after he's left the bathroom in my home. If he leaves the seat or lid up, it's over. That means he always will. Leaving a seat up shows who the "real" man behind the man is. If he puts it down, I will definitely be impressed - and more attracted to him, as a result.
They don't have to look like a movie star to be attractive to me. For me, attraction is all in how a man treats himself and how he treats me, too. It's not as much about the physical as it is about his behavior. I've dated men other women might consider physically unattractive. But they were very attractive to me because of how they behaved. Their behavior made my heart melt!
Very interesting! I must say though, became a bit intimidated with the many stipulations.lol, but to each his/her own. Thanks for some really good insight. I see that many women think beyond looks and think that itspeaks volumes about her as a person
I look for her to be considerate of others. That is a huge thing for me, I don't like judgmental people.
When I met my boyfriend it was instant. I know that sounds cliché but it's true. Physically he's not like most men I've chosen in the past. I used to choose baby-faced blondes with muscular bodies but it was never "instant". When I met my current boyfriend I never saw it coming. I wasn't looking for love at all. He's a bigger man, not as muscular as I used to pick, he has dark hair and the first time our eyes met I knew he was "it". When he and I would meet eyes, the chemistry inside both of us was completely electric. Once we started talking we figured out that we both felt the exact same feelings. When we'd look into each others eyes, the world around us would disappear. The amazing feelings we felt inside were nothing like we'd ever experienced before. We've been together a year now and we still love/lust after each other like we did from day one. We fit each other perfectly. As a young person I thought I had to have a certain look and body type to be attracted to a man, but that is so not the case. Love comes from within. Of course you will be attracted to them on the outside as well because whether they're "beautiful or handsome" in other peoples eyes doesn't matter because their inner beauty makes them beautiful outside as well. I think he's absolutely adorable and sexy, the thinks the same about me.
Very nice comment! Thanks for the input. This says a lot. Part of what I was already thinking and yet still insightful on other things. It's interesting to hear the women's point of view on the subject matter. Thanks again
I like idea that the opposite sex subsidizes in the areas that I am lacking.
Not only men and women but even every animal want sex with opposite sex animal.
