Personality Traits Every Man Wants in a Girl

While it may seem easy for a woman to get any guy that she wants when she is attractive, the real mystery can be keeping a guy around. As we have witnessed from celebrities such as Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Britney Spears, even some of the most beautiful women have trouble in the love department.

So what is it that men really want from us? Here I have listed out some of the top qualities men find attractive when they meet a girl.

Sense of humor

Funny girls always have the last laugh. If you can make a guy laugh, why wouldn’t he want to be around you? It can sometimes be difficult for women to get out of the “sexy girl” role and make guys laugh. Guys like laughing just as much as we do, and it is definitely one way to keep them around.


One reason many people end relationships is because they get bored with it. When a guy has a girl who has a bit of spontaneity, this is rarely the case. While too much spontaneity can lead to trouble, being able to mix things up every now and then is a plus.


I am sad to say that I have witnessed many women act less intelligent than they really are to win the heart of a guy. What they do not realize however, is that for many educated men out there, this is not attractive.

Men want to be with someone who they can talk to about different things, a partner in the long run. A girl who can’t keep up will not last very long.


This is a big one. Everyone wants to be with someone they can trust which is why it is good to be honest, even when it may be difficult to do so. But if you are known to tell the truth that is a trait people tend to remember about you. If you lie often, people remember that too.


Being direct is a trait that comes from knowing what you want, which men appreciate. If you know what you want or if something is bothering you, tell your guy.

Do not dwell on a certain situation until it is out of control and you do not even know why you are upset anymore. Being able to speak your mind clearly about something is a gift. Letting someone know how you feel is a bonus.


Sure a long time ago men prided themselves on being the bread winners. While some men still feel this way, they can also value a woman who has the ability to take care of herself.

That means in every realm of life not just finances. If you have your own things together, that is just that much more that you can bring into a relationship.


it is one thing to have such awesome qualities about yourself, but modesty is always the best policy. Even if you know you’re a hot commodity, the woman that is not gloating about it will always get that positive attention.


At the end of the day, guys want to know if their girl is looking out for them. This means showing that you care and being able to worry about someone else other than yourself. It feels good to have someone help you when you are in need. It feels even better knowing that person is going to stick with you.

Self respect

It is hard to respect someone who does not respect themselves, which is why this is one of the most important traits to have. While it is easy to get attention by wearing overly revealing clothes and flirting with every guy who comes your way, it is not the best way to keep a guy around.

Being able to put your foot down and have certain standards shows that you do have respect for yourself and you deserve someone who can treat you right.


This can be a difficult thing to describe, but men can spot a confident woman from a mile away. A confident woman is sure of herself and unforgiving about who she is.

She does not worry about what other people may think of her, she just does what she feels is best. This is what makes a woman confident.

Someone who is unsure of themselves and always fishing for compliments so that that can feel good about themselves can be tiring, which is why confident women are so appealing.

So there you have it, 10 traits men find desirable. While looks make up a big part of attracting someone, it does not necessarily keep guys around. If one is in-tune with themselves, it is much easier to be in-tune with someone else.
