Face, Teeth, Hair, Butt, Personality, Perkiness :), Low Rise Pants.
Sometimes in that order, sometimes not.

One weird thing i do is look at a girls shoes. You can tell alot about a women by her shoes. Also if shes wearing jeans that fit amazing, its a plus. Trust me.


No saggy bags, pancake butts, goober guts, prickly legs, smelly breath , untweezed browers, mustache reppin, granny panty wearing ladies need apply.

Changing a hair style is easy for a woman to change, compared to being 100 pounds overweight or flat chested. You should be less fussy about that.

Most men are afraid to say it, but WEIGHT. Even a few extra pounds in the wrong places can totally turn a guy off. Think we don't notice those 3 extra pounds on your ass? Think we can't tell you're not wearing size 0?

So ladies, hug those toilet bowls.

I thought you were gay. :confused:

The weight thing just depends on the girl's overall appearance. If she's proportional (including chest :p) and dresses right, it can be fine.

Obviously, eliminating characteristics that make up a buttertroll (fat, smells, horrible hair and teeth, basically abominations of nature), anyway, for me:

makeup

There is nothing more I hate that girly girls who wear makeup. There are girls I meet/professional models/actresses like Jessica Alba which do nothing for me because I can't stand makeup; it looks artifical in 99% of the cases, and in younger women it looks "girly-girl". I've seen women that people who generally slap a 6-7 on in a 10 point scale in terms of attractiveness that I find far better looking than "10s" because they don't wear makeup. Secondarily, I also prefer women who just wear t-shirts and jeans, nothing again "girly girl", overly tight, halter tops, etc.

lol some great replies, especially Nebor's!

Yeah, more and more for me it's got to be the personality one. There's oodles of hot chicks out there, but finding the intelligent one/one with actual passions in life is rare.

99.999% of women seem to simply only do stuff that involves looking good: shopping/beauty therapy/whatever/gym... few are interested in I dunno... mechanics/politics/culture/anything.

A rushed answer I must confess, and perhaps I've got the cynical knob turned too high tonight, but I hope you get the gist. Essentially a chick who when you're nerding at your PC or working on a car/bike/bicycle won't just sit around bored awaiting your return to basically entertain them.

Wasn't it you who had the TV problem, where everyone on the smallville cast had green eyes?

That's a good one, and I agree with you. The funny thing is that women NEVER believe me when I tell them this. It's quite funny.

Yeah, anything more then really light makeup looks pretty bad. I don't even understand the need for lipstick myself.

i would have to say i look for a more unique and exotic look then your average (and plain) 'button nose cutie' many men are attracted to.

i am also attracted to a unique sense of style.

Yup, you bring up an interesting point. Beauty really can't be quantified. I judge it by deviation from ideal, which varies a lot and depends on their culture. Face symmetry is important to me. Even if it's not exactly ideal, nothing on the face is really a turn-off unless said feature is indicative of some type of disease or lack of responsibility. If you take care of yourself, you can almost always be attractive. Whether that means anything from bathing to proper make-up, it'll 'make up' for the bad feature (no pun intended). Except for weight. :shocked:

weight, face (has to be decent to look at, amirite), clothing/style, boobs, booty, hair

defense for clothing/style: you can be good looking, but if you don't know how to dress yourself to make it all look good, you're wasted. style encroaches on personality, but it's part of "appearance" imo.

Wow, we don't agree on anything. Girls that wear T-shirts and jeans for me usually eliminate most of their hot factor if they were otherwise. Tight/girly clothes are essential. As is make-up. Done right and not overly done, though, of course.

teeth.

i've seen girls who were otherwise pretty, who had jacked up teeth. *shudder* i know it's shallow, but i think that's the point of the thread, right? :eek:

i agree with the makeup part. the only thing worse than an overly perfumed woman with a layer of makeup that can be peeled off is obesity.

i've got nothing against make up in moderation. of course there are extreme cases when girls wear too much makeup. girls who wear no makeup and just wear tshirts and jeans are a little too "homely" for my tastes.

another thing i dislike is really long hair. i really like shorter hair styles. nothing "butch", but short hair styles are super hot to me, like this:

to me, it just looks healthier and more energetic. long hair down to a girl's mid-back is kinda gross to me.
