What Men Are Thinking
About Women And Beauty

What men are thinking about women and beauty has some comments that may surprise you. Read what qualities a man is first attracted to and what men really think makes a woman beautiful provided some very surprising answers! 

Throughout history the poets, the philosophers, the writers and the artists have been talking about beauty and its meaning. Some men had definite opinions that dispel many of the myths set down by those predecessors.

As a man what do you look for? Is it her looks, body structure, her movement, her virtues etc? Which is a woman's real beauty?  Read the posts and submissions below and see if your thought's on what makes a woman beautiful match any of these. 


No doubt some people are just acting out a script and saying what people want to hear except for just a few. Good for them. My mama tells us something sometimes, jokingly though; "none of you should marry an ugly man/woman oooo coz I didn't give birth to ugly children"

I'm not going to base my opinion on that even though that is part of my resolve on this issue. If you're wowo (ugly), I can't be attracted to you. I'm of the opinion that beauty is not totally a function of looks but it plays an important role.

Anywhere I go with my woman, I want to be able to raise my shoulders high enough to introduce her as mine. That is my candid opinion. And you know what? God says, "Ask and you shall receive" That is what I've asked Him.


You know something I always believe when it comes to the issue of beauty and character? Those who believe they are not beautiful or probably have been told so by a couple of people would never accept that facial beauty is important. You know what that means, I call it- some form of consolation. 


This is one of the best post by far, but we are messing it up by perambulation around the terms beauty is first of all what you see appearance as in Halle Berry, Liz Benson, Omotola Jalade, Marion Jones and their likes. secondary beauty is where things like virtue, family connections, status come into play.

So if I have to pick and use beauty as a yard stick i would pick Anita Baker to have a beautiful voice while Marion Jones for a beautiful face, Mother Teresa for a beautiful mind, I hope you get my drift. as for me beauty is appearance comes first I will toast Beyonce first before considering Whoppi Goldberg.

So all those who say that beauty will fade away. should also remember that strength will also fade away with time but the memory of my lady's beauty will always be with me. 


No woman is repulsive. It basically depends on what you're looking for in a woman. Some just start as friends and it develops into full-blown-date (because of her character). Guys don't only make friends with pretty girls mind you. 

I haven't said any woman is repulsive and I would never say a thing like that. All women are beautiful in their own way but there's something you all are not getting from my point. I just wish you could figure it out.

Every creature God created is beautiful and good but you see some people don't know this, hence they believe they aren't good enough. I believe something someone once said, "No one can say you're ugly without your permission". Unfortunately, so many are filled with inferiority complex, hence they accept that even though they don't say it.


Well I think beauty is whatever u take it to be.If count it from the facial aspect fine.it is beauty you take it from the body shape great it is beauty too BUT WHICH IS MOST IMPORTANT? I think its the heart, character, soul,the inner mind a beautiful girl in mind should know how to dress well SO beauty they say is in the eyes of the beholder if u see a girl u feel u like she's OK facially, shape and has a good character


Real beauty is not just facial beauty only,beauty comes with lot of things like character 1)How does she react when provoked 2)How does she relate to others 3)How does she walk 4)They way she talk 5)Good shape 6)Her reasoning 7)Intelligent 8)Respectful 


Beauty from inside is the most important. Inside beauty matters the most. But looks also matters plz. beauty 


Sincerely I'll want her to be beautiful in and out but i prefer in-wards because i believe a gentle/nice chimpanzee is far better than a wicked/fierce angel. real beauty is her heart and how evil she could be THE REAL BEAUTY IN A WOMAN IS HER HIGH STANDARD OF INTELLIGENCE AND POLICY!


Beauty they say is in the eyes of the beholder. I wonder what makes a lady beautiful ? but frankly speaking I will prefer the state of her mind and her behavior at  home and outside this is my idea of a beautiful lady. What do you think?


Her touches, her looks, her kisses and how she acts in public while being with you. 


Only good character can make a lady beautiful. 


What Men Are Thinking About Women And Beauty - Physical Beauty

 I've been with my girlfriend over 3 years now and I can say there is no one in the world I would rather be with. I think the main thing that I love about her is how caring she is. She's a natural mother figure (although we don't want kids), and weirdly (I think this is a Freudian thing) I look for that in a woman.

I like her because she's strong, dominant and doesn't let men trample over her, which I really admire in a woman. I like the way we'll be watching Big Brother highlights and she'll point out just how spineless and pathetic some of the "girls" are in the house. Physically, I find bigger, fuller figured women attractive (some people would call them "fat" but I think this term is thrown around too loosely for any woman larger than a size 2!!!).

It really disturbs me just how much mainstream magazines are portraying the thin (and I mean stick-model thin) figure as "beautiful" and something to aspire to. She's my goddess

I have come to the conclusion, having admired a great many women, that almost any woman can be truly beautiful, if she wants.

It doesn't come down to age, Sharon Stone, Rene Russo and Madonna all prove that. It doesn't come down to looks, hardly any supermodels look similar, just think of Sophie Dahl. It doesn't come down to hair color either. Yet, any woman who makes effort with hair, makeup and clothes can look stunning. I'm convinced of that.

As for me, what I look for comes from inside. I have been lucky enough to date some truly amazing women from a number of different countries and ethnicities. They are well educated, well traveled, multi-lingual, hard working expatriates with flair and drive. Amazing creatures. In truth, I am generally not even vaguely worthy of them - they were and are amazing. That comes from within.

I think you're arguing internal beauty versus external, and one thing to understand is that the male mind separates the two. It's how porn exists and why strip clubs exist. Physical and mental can be separate. We also don't romanticize emotional attraction as "beauty." If a woman is a great person, we'll say it, but it really doesn't make her beautiful.

It makes her great, though. Now, that being said, beauty is, physically: - Being in good shape (healthy body fat percentile) - Good skin (moisturized, blemish-free) - Healthy hair (well kept, conditioned and cut) - Dressing well (current styles, well-kept clothes, etc) - Good hygiene (nails, perfume, etc) - Good eyebrows (nothing furry, manly or overdone so they're nonexistent) - Well-done makeup (complementary, not too much or too little) IMO, 90% of women (or more) can look VERY beautiful to men, provided they give some good effort. 


 I was just recently describing these very attributes in response to a similar question moments ago. I'll do it again in the context of this one particular lady who is currently scrambling my senses: she has the most sincere and engaging smile; that was the initial attraction.

As I've gotten to know her, however, her beauty has opened slowly to me like a blossoming flower, keeping me rapt but ever hungry for more. That mysterious element definitely works to her advantage, because I'm a captive audience.

Picture this: she's got this youthful, doe like innocence but also a confident grace...frankly it just drives me crazy (thank you for letting me get that off my chest).

She's highly intelligent, compassionate and optimistic; extremely pretty yet with an approachable air about herself. All of these things in concert make her beautiful to me. You have my permission to tell the world, if I don't beat you to it. 


There are as many different answers to that as there are men on the planet. It's called personal preference! 


What do I consider as beauty in a woman? Here are my first thoughts: When the presence of a woman brings peace, tranquility, and love - not stress.  

When a woman is strong enough to make decisions that make a difference and take full responsibility for her actions, instead of hiding in the shadow of the men in her life. When a woman does not habitually tell lies. You'll be surprised how rare this is. 


It is rare to find women who do not tell lies. But very common to find ladies telling lies - fact. What is the real beauty in a woman, firstly it isn't her looks, because that fades It's not her body structure because that changes.

It's something within, something in the way she smiles, the way she looks at you, the way she sleeps, the way she calls your name, they way her head always seems to find that crook in your neck, they way she makes you feel like you have someone to lean on, someone to who has your back, someone you can rely on, someone you can trust.

A girl that is independent yet she seems to depend on you (sounds like a contradiction i know) It's when just the thought of her brings a smile to your face, when you find yourself lying awake at night just to watch her sleeping. when you find out that you pray for her before yourself...... wait a minute that's love.... hmm but i guess it's a girls inner beauty that makes a guy fall in love with her so they kind of go together. hope i'm making sense. 


Truth is: good looks "attracts" but only good character "keeps"... A lady with a nice heart is the most beautiful to me.. damn looks. Its only skin deep. 


I agree  totally, good looks "attracts" but only good character "keeps". But u know that d end justifies d means,so to me good character is the real beauty in women.
