While a statuesque man with a great chiseled face and edgy style would evoke that second glance, what truly makes a guy sexy or attractive is his mind and soul.
On the first day of kindergarten a boy walked in and had what I thought at the time, the coolest chain.
Butterflies fluttered through my stomach and even though I had never experienced a crush before, I knew that this was exactly what it was.
Long story short, we became best friends.
Then one day someone told him that I had a crush on him.
His approach to this was to let me down easily, so, he mocked me throughout the whole day and went on about how girls are actually gross.
Instantly I felt my feelings for him flutter away and his chain did not look as cool.
After this incident I stopped paying so much attention to looks and more to personalities.
There is nothing more attractive than someone who is intelligent, kind, confident, and adventurous.
Personally, I think everyone is beautiful and has something to offer.
However, if I were to base my relationships on pure looks, I would miss out on finding someone who would mentally stimulate me.
To say looks do not matter would be a complete lie, but when someone has a great personality, they can easily be a 10 out of 10.
I have been in situations where men that I have found attractive approach me but cannot hold a conversation.
More recently there was a guy who dressed very well, about 6 feet tall, and was just overall attractive.
I talked to him for a whole month just to get a better feel of him.
While he was extremely nice and attractive, that did not make up for the fact that all I got from our conversations was that he was into drinking excess amounts of alcohol and really hated his old manager.
I was bored, and his looks were just not enough.
While many guys might believe that the way to get a girl is through machismo, good looks, and nonchalant attitude, that is not the case for most women.
“Personality is key when I’m deciding if a guy is attractive. Also, I really appreciate it when guys can spell and have good grammar. It’s a big turn off when they write like a fifth grade dropout,” said student Rena McKeanne.
There are so many good-looking men but their personalities are what sets them apart from every other good-looking guy.
Yeah, looks may initially catch my attention but that will not keep me interested.
In the end, looks only make up for 30 percent of the whole package.
While looks fade away, personalities flourish.
