When it comes to the types of people we each find attractive, the saying “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” could not be more true.
Sure, there are some universally attractive people that exhibit your conventionally attractive features, but even those differ from culture to culture and race to race.
Many of us have no idea what makes a person attractive to us. Sometimes when we know, we just know. It’s hard to dive into the world of attraction because it’s caused by so many different factors.
It could be something emotional, or something strictly physical, something rational or completely irrational. However, there are a few traits that seem to be universally attractive, and they have nothing to do with looks.
Here are five things that most people agree are largely attractive qualities to have:
A sense of humor
It makes sense that humor is a trait that almost everyone looks for in their partner because laughing is something we all like to do. It can be incredibly important for a person to be able to laugh at themselves or make light of an unfortunate situation, because life is hard and full of uncertainty.
You have to be able to lighten up every now and then. No one wants to hang out with someone who’s serious all the time.
Being passionate about life
Passion is something that we’re all searching for in this lifetime, so to see someone who’s found it can be incredibly attractive. Passion gives us something to live for. When we’re passionate about something, figuring out life becomes much easier. It provides clarity, guidance and purpose.
Being able to make GOOD decisions
As mentioned previously, life is all but certain. When a person is assertive and makes good decisions for themselves (and others), it indicates that they have an idea of where they’re going and what they’re doing. They have direction.
This trait is becoming increasingly hard to find, which makes it particularly attractive when looking for a mate.
How they treat themselves and others
Many people view kindness as one of the most important traits a person can have, because it’s often seen as a measurement of how good a person they are. When a person shows the same kindness to strangers as they do their friends and family, it’s a sign that they’re just genuinely good-natured, and will likely act the same toward you.
Having an open mind
Have you ever talked to someone who is so closed-minded that they refuse to even listen to what others have to say? Being closed-minded is a trait that often indicates a person is ignorant, which is an absolute turn-off for most of us.
Open minds are capable of bridging the gaps that closed-minded people try to make bigger. Open minds help resolve issues across certain divisions of groups.
They see the bigger picture.
There you have the qualities of attractive people, are you one of them?
