Girls have different types or tastes when it comes to guys

You probably have noticed that not all girls prefer the same type of guy. This is because each girl has a certain type or taste when it comes to guys. Girls look for different traits, qualities, and features in their ideal guy. While these preferences vary from one girl to another, there are also several qualities in a guy that most girls find attractive.

What qualities do you have?

Have you ever asked yourself questions like "Why doesn't she like me?" or "Why is it that ladies are flocking around me?" You know what? While it is not possible for each and every girl to take interest in you, there are things you can do to make yourself generally attractive to a lot of girls. Truth be told, no one is born a man. Every man is made. And if you are to be a man winning the admiration and respect of girls, you would have to exhibit these 20 qualities. These are the top 20 characteristics that most girls would love to see in a guy.

#1. Appealing physical characteristics

Before you can even say anything, your physical appearance is enough to make an impression. Quite frankly, a girl who does not find you physically attractive in any way may not want to enter into a relationship with you regardless of your other great qualities or potential. Looking physically attractive results from appropriate dressing and proper grooming. It also involves have a fit body and adhering to a healthy lifestyle. Even if you are not genetically blessed with great features, you can still look physically attractive if you make an effort. So, don't be among the numerous double-standard guys who go about searching for good-looking girls but don't make effort to be good-looking as well. Always dress nicely, use a subtle fragrance, and stay fit. Girls like guys that are good-looking.

#2. Girls like to see honesty in guys

In addition to being physically attractive, the next important thing girls look out for in guys is honesty. They want to be sure you mean what you say and say what you mean. Most girls feel betrayed and unhappy when they discover you are being economical with the truth especially on important matters. When in a relationship with guys, ladies want honesty as much as they want physical attractiveness. Besides, no one will want to be in a relationship with a pathological liar no matter how attractive they look. Being honest with a girl will help you gain her trust. Be truthful when you talk. But then again, you may have to exercise some caution while displaying honesty in some situations. You don't tell a girl she's ugly or too fat to prove you are being honest. Even if she is, be polite and don't be too straightforward.

#3. Girls like guys who are strong

She certainly does not want to go out with a man who acts weak and looks too fragile to protect her. Most girls prefer guys with both character and physical strength. No wonder many girls judge a guy's physical attractiveness based on some body parts. They love to see guys who are agile and physically resilient. Also, emotional and mental strength is important. She doesn't want to see a guy clueless when it comes to decision-making. Therefore, as you build your body parts, build your character too. Ladies love to be with guys who know what they are doing, in control of their own selves and intelligent enough to know what step to take next.

#5. She loves to see a guy with a vision

Your vision represents what you stand for in life and what you intend to become. Girls generally love to associate with guys who have a vision in life. Talk to her about your life goals and aspirations. Having this trait shows them you aren't just existing, but you also have a purpose. The question is, "Do you have a vision for yourself?" What do you plan to become in the near future? What are your plans have you laid down to achieve them? Ask yourself these questions and find if girls will be able to see this attribute in you.

#6. She loves to see your financial strength

This is one thing she really wants to see you demonstrate. Being in a relationship means paying for dates. Eventually, it may also mean paying for trips or bills. A girl would always prefer a guy who is financially capable because it shows stability. Even if you have a nice face and impressive body parts, a girl will lose interest if you're financially weak. But don't get this wrong. We're not saying that you must be a millionaire to attract a girl. No. She doesn't need to pay for everything and buy her everything. She just needs to know that you are industrious, hardworking, and wise with your finances.

#7. Girls like to see a great sense of humor in guys

If you are going to be her best friend and partner, then you need to be able to make her laugh. Life can sometimes be frustrating and boring, that's why the capacity to turn things around with humor will always be attractive to girls. You've got to be able to talk and tease her.

In fact, if you try to fake it, most of them can easily tell. It means you have to be sincere in your interaction with her. Also, be conscious of her body language and actions. You don't have to have all the answers to her needs. However, she wants to see that you understand and care about her feelings, thoughts, and concerns.
