Insecure because you don’t have big boobs, commercial-worthy hair or an impeccable sense of style? Don’t worry: when it comes to looks, men can actually be more perceptive than you think. There are plenty of small, seemingly unattractive details that men love.

Soft belly

We spend hours every day trying to trim and tone our stomachs, but men don’t really like a hard, defined stomach. They like a little softness to grab onto, or rest their head on in bed. Physical softness translates to softness of personality to men—to a sense of maternity. And they love that.


Stop dropping hundreds of dollars on anti-wrinkle cream. Perhaps once you hit your forties it is okay, but women as young as twenty panic too much. A completely smooth, wrinkle-free face can look too young to a man. A few wrinkles, on the other hand, signify experience. Which to a man automatically means experience in bed, and that’s a turn on.

Stretch marks

To you, they’re embarrassing and need to be covered up. To him, they are signs of fertility—they remind him of the fact that your body evolved from childlike to womanly, and that’s hot. Men also love stretch marks because usually, your guy is the only one that has the pleasure of seeing them! And he likes that intimacy.

Small boobs

Small boobs are usually perky boobs, and perky boobs are a sign of fertility and a woman that has yet to have children. Most men prefer perkiness to size for this reason.

Mismatched underwear

You try to coordinate some lacy panties and bra, but men actually like catching you in your mismatched underwear. It looks like you weren’t planning on having sex, which is an ego boost for men because they somehow persuaded you to.

Smudged makeup

Men love a little of that morning smudge that comes from forgetting to wash your face the night before. It gives you that after-sex glow.

Grown-out roots

You could save a lot of money by cutting your visits to the salon in half. Men see grown-out roots as a bit of roughness and unkemptness, which can be hot in a woman. The woman with the constantly perfect hair is usually also the uptight woman.

Baggy PJ’s

When you stop putting on those little negliges and bring out your comfy sweats and t-shirts from past beloved events, it shows you’re confident about yourself, which a man finds Hot.

Muffin top

Stop torturing yourself to slip effortlessly into skinny jeans. A small muffin top reminds a man you have curves, which indicate fertility.

Whether it’s after dinner at his place, or walking home from a club, men love a woman that finally says, “Screw it!” to her uncomfortable heels and goes barefoot. There’s also something intimate about a bare foot. It’s like a hint of nudity.


Stop thinking your glasses are to your detriment, refusing to go out without contacts. Most men find them attractive! Whether it’s because you have a fashionable pair, or because they remind them of their sweet elementary school librarian, men love a nice pair of specs.


Simple clothes

Men love a flattering pair of jeans and a comfortable t-shirt that shows just a little of the shape of your boobs. All they want is the basic information: does she have a good body? Too elaborate of clothing is only distracting to them, and even hints a lack of confidence.


A man likes to know that you have experience and struggles in your past, and that you’re not ashamed of it. A visible scar, unattended to by plastic surgery of correction cream can be very attractive.

An opinion

Men like a woman that doesn’t shut her mouth for the comfort of others, or to make others like her. Wear your opinions proudly. A man would rather be entertained yet challenged, then appeased yet bored.
