While men are typically visual creatures finding their partner’s outward appearance charming, more men find traits that are hardly physical attractive. Pretty women, after all, are everywhere. But not all of them have what men are looking for in a partner. What really stands out for men and makes a lasting impression goes beyond a woman’s body.

Men love these 5 things about women and they are not physical

1. Friendliness

You don’t have to be cute to be nice. You can maintain a healthy sense of yourself while still showing kindness to others. And empathy is an attractive trait in anyone, not just women. A person is filled with pride and wonder when they see the person they love showing compassion and kindness towards others, even strangers.

Also, kindness is a useful tool in relationships to end disagreements. Some women seem to thrive on belittling their men in arguments, cutting them off with scathing words and insults. Other women know how to respond kindly first, but it is vital that she also knows how to defend herself, without insulting the other party. And kindness will often stop a bawdy argument. You know what they mean, after all, strike them kindly.

2. Sense of humor

An attractive woman knows how to laugh, and perhaps more importantly, she knows how to laugh at herself. This also means that she doesn’t take herself too seriously and is able to occasionally blow up work and meetings without it being too much of a problem for her. A healthy dose of spontaneity makes things exciting, and every once in a while, it’s good to shake up the routine. It keeps things interesting in the relationship.

3. Confident and goal oriented

Setting goals and subsequently achieving them indicates a strong sense of confidence. It also shows that you know where you are and where you want to be. Confidence and goal setting are attractive characteristics because they indicate that a woman, or a person in general, knows what she wants out of life.

Of course, there is a difference between confident and narcissistic. The first recognizes the needs of others while the other allows only his own. It is a wonderful quality for a woman to know that she is worthy of respect without having an inflated ego to spoil it.

4. Emotionally mature and responsible

The emotional responsibility of a woman is incredibly attractive to men . They want a woman who doesn’t blame others for her shortcomings, who doesn’t manipulate others with tears, anger, and tantrums to get an answer. Although not all women exhibit these negative traits, and to be sure, some men exhibit them as well, using your emotions to try to control others is immature and downright unattractive. If you know how to take responsibility for your own emotions and not project them onto others, it is a fact that you have a very attractive quality for a man.

5. Strong communication skills

The ability to have deep and meaningful conversations is an attractive quality. But it goes beyond that. Men, in addition to people in general, prefer it when they don’t have to read someone’s mind to understand what they want. Save a lot of pain when you express very well what you think and express your needs and desires. It’s not fair to insist that you don’t want anything for your birthday while you’re still waiting to be surprised with a gift anyway. This goes hand in hand with number four on this list, knowing what you want and not resorting to brain games to get it.

Being able to communicate also lends itself to being able to erase conflict quickly and effectively. And strong communicators are strong listeners too – they know how to listen to all sides of an argument before speaking themselves.
