You've done everything you can to be considered attractive. Maybe you're wearing the right clothes, trimming your beard the right way, and working the right job.
And yet you're still single. What's the deal? You're pretty much perfect!
Turns out the running definition of perfection is overrated, at least according to the women of Reddit. Sometimes peak attractiveness is found in very unusual places.
As usual, r/AskReddit got introspective and informative when female users shared their most surprising turn-ons. Some of the things they find attractive defy stereotypes, research, and norms – and prove that being yourself is the best way to find the right person.
Also, personality matters. A lot. Duh.
1. Under-eye bags.
"I find guys with bags under their eyes weirdly super attractive." —PrettyLittleBird
Yeah, turns out that face luggage you're insecure about isn't always such a bad thing. In fact, other users mentioned their affinity for the same unexpected trait. "This is IT for me," a fellow Redditor wrote. "I love guys that look like a Tim Burton character."
"I like when a guys is going bald and completely shaves his whole head. Most guys seem touchy about it, but I kinda like it." —Independent-worm
Bald is beautiful – and according to many women, it's best when you own it. Several Redditors said they preferred for men to go bald as opposed to sticking with thinning locks. The key? Confidence, of course.
3. Body hair.
"Body hair. I love it, I love the way it feels on my body when I'm naked, love running my fingers through it. It's so sexy to look at, too. I don't know why but part of my brain starts to go crazy." —mydadisindianajones
Manscaping not required. Turns out plenty of women don't just tolerate body hair, they love it. You're not going to have to 40-Year-Old Virgin that chest hair for her benefit.
"Scars. They’ve made you the person you are." —Phififi
Listen, we've all known scars could be deemed sexy if done right. And they tell a story. Users agreed that a good scar doesn't have to be considered unsightly, but can actually reveal a bit about a man.
5. "Imperfect" teeth.
"I love crooked teeth, I think they’re adorable." —hubuhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuh
"Perfect" is relative. Snaggleteeth? One user mentioned loving them. Another called crooked teeth "charming." Sorry, Invisalign. Not everyone's going to have to grab a grill.
Like you've been told 1,000 times: beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Above all physical traits, the best thing you can rock is confidence no matter who is doing the beholding.
