What do you look for in a guy?
Everyone looks for something different it varies based on the person. Me personaly i look for a few things. First of all i look at eyes i like a guy who can get me lost in there eyes (blue eyes really get me lost). Secondly i look at there reactions to people not many girls want to date a guy who yells at everyone for nothing and is rude 24/7. Lastly i look at thier personality a guy with a good and sensitive but not like crying all the time sensitive personality really catches my eye.
I look for a guy who doesn't flirt with every cute girl he comes across. =D Mind you, I haven't ever had a boyfriend, or gone on a date.
But I tend to look for character strengths in any guy I would ever consider. Like, guys who aren't easily led, guys who treat girls with respect, not as se.x objects, and guys who actually care about their future, and have interest in finding a job.
i love guys who make me laugh and who can be sarcastic like me but also just open up about stuff sometimes. Also someone who treats me seriously as a person.
Haha I look for petite, funny, sweet, smart and cute. Oh I'm describing my girlfriend-- whoops :P. I'm ga.y so I don't really look for guys XD. Although every once and awhile a guy will get my attention XD. I like when guys have southern accents (but they have to be natural not forced), guys with good manners, a nice smile (they gotta smile a lot), funny and can laugh at themselves and dorky guys. Guys who are in band and get good grades, don't drink or smoke anything, etc... Although, a lot of my male friends (who are all ga.y XD) drink and/or smoke cig.arettes XD. Yeah I wouldn't know what else to look for in a guy cos I don't like dating them :P. Sorry for being a smart as.s XD.
Personally, I only notice guys who are confident, mature, independent, and have a good sense of humor. They don't need to be freaky intelligent, (although it's a plus), but they need to be interesting to talk to, otherwise I'll just move on to the next guy that can keep my attention.
I like guys who are video game nerds(they are so cute when they ramble on about the newest X-Box game!), who have already had their first kisss (or so they tell you), good funny sense of humor, and who have amazing eyes. That'sjust me.
understanding, accepting, dorky, musical, comprehensive(I don't wanna explain everything I'm saying -.-) listener, kind, creative, doesn't get too jealous...
Are you kidding? When the guy is super jealous, it's awesome!
I look for a guy who cares. Someone who will lsiten to me and make me feel better. I also look for complet loyalty, I don't like cheaters at all. The guy needs to be 100% loyal to me. I also look for someone who can make me laugh and have a good time. I like him to be smart and have conversations with him and not about stupid things. But mostly I just want a guy who likes me for me. I will not change for a guy, they either like me or they don't.
Thank you and RainbowDerp I'll use your advice on what you like in girls someday
i look for a guy that loves to read and write, is just a little bit geeky, and really sweet.
Umm... I don't have a type per se. I made a list once about what I'd like in a guy. I showed my friend and all she said was, "You can't date book characters."
My list was:
-Someone who text me good morning/good night
-Will apologize after a fight, eve if I'm who was wrong
-Will kiss me, not make out
-Will make me laugh
-Will take silly/cute pictures with me
-Will start the conversation
-Will notice when I'm upset
-Likes long hugs
-Likes to cuddle
-Hugs me from behind
-Won't flirt with other girls
-Won't rush things
-Won't get clingy
-Won't lie to me
-Give me sincere compliments
It goes on, but I'll just end it there. I've already realized that that list only describes book characters. Shows you how much hope there is for me :P
I look for the basic qualities that everybody wants in a friend and a companion.
I'm not exactly, sure but I know I want him to be my missing puzzle piece.
I need him to be able to handle my questions and my opinions of various topics. He can't be closed minded, he has to have a good heart and even better intentions.
If we can't hold a conversation and debate then I would find him uninteresting. We can't have that.
I should be the only object of his attention (as far as girls go.) I don't need someone whose eyes stray easily.
He has to be secure with himself and be able to talk things out if we get in an argument. I can't have the whole, i'm not going to talk to you because of such and such. He has to be great at communicating.
He also has to have goals in life. He can't be someone who is always reaching to go nowhere.
Well naturally looks aren't that important, but if they were, I would look for tall, dark, buff guys with square jaws and short hair. As for personality, I'm a pretty unemotional, tough, military, su.ck-it-up kind of girl, and it would be kind of annoying to be emotionally stronger than my boyfriend. I'm okay with the sensitive type, as long as they don't make it obvious (yes, I literally just said I want a guy who doesn't show his feelings. I'm probably going to get shot). It's not that I want him to hide how he feels, it just hat I'm not into the whole touchy-feely, let me tell you about my emotions kind of thing. But most importantly, he has to have a sense of humor, preferably a bit innapropriate and morbid. He also has to be kind and stuff, you know, the obvious. I don't care if he has some sort of dark past, but I don't want a guy with a dark present - ex bad boy, but no bad boys for me. Lastly, I don't think I could deal with somebody with radically different beliefs than mine. Somebody who's Mus.lim or Jew.ish, for example, would be fine, but I don't think I could do Ath.iest or Hin.du, just like I could probably deal with Dem.ocrat but not a hippie. :P Anyway, sorry it was long. xD
And Queen_of_Fiction, don't worry - those aren't just characters. :) I have a couple guy friends who are just like that. The thing you have to realize is, in order to get that, you may have to put up with some stuff. For example, the aforementioned friends are also very creepy, a little violent, and have slightly questionable sanity.
Here's what I look for: He's got to be nice. Get's my dry humour. He needs to be nice to EVERYONE. He can't be embarrased if I snuggle up to him and kiss him on the cheek in public. He has to like holding my hand. He needs to be honest with me. No, he doesn't need to compliment me all the time, I'll get annoyed. He needs to support me, because I'll always support him. When we fight, he needs to realize that we both said things that were stupid, and should apologize, because I'll always accept his apology. I don't care whether or not he is smart, because I'll whip him into shape in no time with out study sessions.
AsIAm: My sanity's already being questioned, and I do have some violent tendencies. And creepy doesn't even begin to describe me.
Then you have plenty of character-esque options out there :) Just look past the disturbingness of some guys and you'll realize a lot of them are textbook perfect.
They HAVE to make me laugh,i like guys who are different,a sweet smile and thoughtfull personality. They cant judge people and they should have an open heart and mind.They dont have to be the most attractive thing on earth but girls do have standards...lol
