We spend our lives looking at the opposite sex. We create a particular pattern to grade someone on their attitude, issues, and, of course, physical appearance.
Romantic comedies love to show the story of an ugly duckling who’s transformed into a jaw-dropping gorgeous woman after meeting the love of her life. However, this is not a reflection of real life.
In the twenty-first century, there are still plenty who maintain that female attractiveness is related to good manners and demure femininity; that it’s all about being beautiful and having a body able to satisfy her partner’s desires. It’s as if Jane Austen’s social critiques never existed.
Women are continuously dropping these ideas of beauty in favor of other qualities to achieve. While some men continue to talk about breasts instead of the woman, this does not mean we should disregard our personal appearance. But instead of going for stereotypes, there are a couple of details, both related to physical attributes and attitudes, that show there’s nothing wrong with being attractive.
1. A smile changes everything
Women can bewitch anyone with a smile. It’s a contagion of happiness that spreads to anyone who catches it.
2. Great sense of humor
When breaking the ice, jokes and playfulness are able to demonstrate authenticity while helping things flow easier.
3. Got Brains?
4. Keeping it cool
Taking things with ease, analyzing, and leaving behind impulsiveness is not to be overlooked.
A woman should never have to consult her partner about every decision. She should be able to make choices without someone deciding for her.
6. Knows how to say no
Being able to discern whether or not she agrees with her partner’s opinion, or how far she is willing to bend her own instincts demonstrates her character.
7. Takes initiative
This might not be as obvious, but makes all the difference. How she carries herself and presents her thoughts and feelings without repression can make her stand out of the crowd.
A woman able to try something crazy without regrets is able to enjoy the rush of adrenaline running through her body.
11. Likes to experiment in bed
12. Physical condition
In order to become an expert in the art of eroticism, one needs to have the stamina to last more than 10 minutes.
13. Doesn’t put down other women
A real woman is unafraid to show herself as she is, without trying to imitate or copy someone else.
15. Personal appearance
16. Knows how to dance
While it’s easier for a woman to dance than for most men, they believe that a good dancer is also good in bed.
17. Makeup that enhances natural beauty
18. Not be overly concerned with their weight
Some women spend most of their conversations talking about their weight. This is a sign of low self-esteem that only makes others feel sorry for them. It’s important to be comfortable with one’s own skin for others to see the person inside.
