What do you find physically attractive in the opposite sex?

I find that there are some girls who ooze sex appeal, but may not necessarily be beautiful. Other girls that are simply stunning, but are not what you'd call sexy, and still other girls who are cute, but not necessarily sexy or beautiful.

*phew, I hope that makes sense*

I've come across the rare girl who has all three attributes (my wife for instance - I'm not kidding), but they are few and far between.

What do you think?

I find a man with a huge...gigantic.....giant the most attractive thing on the planet. Funny helps too....but the physical attraction is either there, or it isn't.

I met a man, who on paper, was 'my perfect match'...and nada....nothing...

I have no idea how this stuff works, but I wish I knew...

James, thats a good description, I totally agree!

You can't make chemistry it's just something that happens eh? although it helps if they're sexy ;)

There's this guy at uni who's friends with all the same people I am but he thinks I'm really rude cos I literally cannot speak to him or look at his face he's so goddamn beautiful, shame is everyone knows it, but lucky for him he's not arrogant... *sigh*

What's your favourite btw?? If you had to pick? sexy, cute or beautiful?, I think that sexy is the only one that lasts, cos it comes from within...maybe thats just me :)

oops, didn't answer the question, but for me, cos I'm quite tall for a girl (5'10") it would have to be height and a nice build. phew, if they're tall then I'm theirs ;)but other than that sense of humour is the only thing I need!, never a short boring one!!

The first thing that pops into my mind is quirky and eccentric. Funny is also high on my list. If I can't laugh with the person then it's just doomed to fail.

Back when I was getting over a long relationship, a friend and I decided to write down our "wish list" - her for an ideal job, and me for my ideal man. Well! Turns out my boyfriend fits about 10% of the (very long and detailed)description I wrote out. Yet we clicked at first sight. There's just something about him - a combination of smart, funny, sensitive, patient. The best way to describe it is that he 'gets' it, he gets me - we're on the same wavelength.

Some people wait around forever for the guy or girl that fits their ideal wish list. I think half of Dr. Phil's shows deal with the subject!

Funny helps too

You know, women keep saying this, but I have yet to be able to pick up one woman by telling her a knock-knock joke.

I'm agreeing with tway on this. You can't intellictualize this. I know that every girl I've been involved with is the complete opposite of what I "thought" I wanted.

It's in the way she acts and carries herself for me. I like confidence and a willingness is the best word I can come up with for it. Confidence to be cute, sexy, beautiful, whatever in her own skin. And she has to be willing to "work with me". That's a broad concept including a lot of stuff.

Now Greg, I am not an expert on successful dating techniques, but perhaps if you updated your jokes to appeal to ladies older than single digits? Your success rate may zoom upwords with better material. Perhaps a bit racy but not offensive? Worth a try lad, as of now you are batting 00.00%.
