Ok, for this thread state what you trait you have and what trait you find most attractive. For instance, state your eye color, and then state which eye color you find most attractive. But do this for:
eye color
hair color
hair curliness
freckles vs no freckles
skin color
height
body type
body hair
head/facial structure
introversion vs extroversion
sensing (concrete) vs intuition (abstract)
thinker vs feeler
habitual vs spontaneous

I want to find out if opposites are generally more attracted to each other, and if not, why or why not.

I want to find out if opposites are generally more attracted to each other, and if not, why or why not.
I'm attracted to men who are physically similar to me. My husband and my son are also attracted to people who are physically similar to them. I'm a slender fit blonde with green eyes, and my husband and son have brown hair and brown eyes. That's right, my husband and I did not marry people who were physically similar to us. That was my first husband who looked like Brad Pitt, but he was an absolute loser. My husband is a fantastic man.

I've learned through the years that what I'm attracted to isn't good for me. For example, I'm an extrovert, spontaneous and a feeling intuitive person who can quickly assess situations. My husband is more introverted, not spontaneous and a very careful decision maker. We balance each other well. He keeps me grounded. I liven him up. So even though I'm not attracted to opposites, I think opposites are the best matches. I've been with him for 20 years and it hasn't gotten boring. My relationships with people who are similar to me only lasted a few years.

eye color -- green -- blue or green
hair color -- blonde -- blonde
hair curliness -- straight -- straight
freckles vs no freckles -- used to have freckles, but not really anymore. I have no preference on this
skin color -- fair skin -- fair skin
height -- slightly above average -- slightly above average
body type -- slender and fit -- slender and fi
body hair -- none -- not a fan (not really sure what you mean by this)
head/facial structure -- strong oval -- strong oval to square
introversion vs extroversion -- extrovert -- extrovert
sensing (concrete) vs intuition (abstract) -- both -- both
thinker vs feeler -- both -- both
habitual vs spontaneous -- spontaneous -- spontaneous

So I find that I admire traits opposite to my own in other women, but in my man I like traits more similar to mine. I like a man with dark hair with strong facial features who is an intellectual with an irreverent sense of humor.

It doesn't factor for me. Variety is the spice of life.

good idea

(first mine, then what i find more attractive)

eye color: brown - honey/hazel/light brown
hair color: brunette-brunette
hair curliness: wavy/moderately curly - curly
freckles vs no freckles: no freckles- no freckles
skin color: white-any skin color
height: tall- tall
body type: average- average/dont mind much
body hair: none - not a fan
head/facial structure: ?
introversion vs extroversion: introverted-introverted
sensing (concrete) vs intuition (abstract): intuition-intuition.
thinker vs feeler: feeler-thinker
habitual vs spontaneous:mix of both-mix of both


it seems i look for someone pretty similar to me. Though, about the hair, i LOVE men with curly hair, but i dont like curly hair in women. I had curly hair when i was little, and my hair has naturally straighthen a lot, and now is wavy and not so curly, and i always use hair streigthener or do perms, so my hair most of the time is straigther than it really is. So i love curly hair in men, but curly hair in women (thats the hair i have)im not a fan of.

Other than that, i like my type, i would call that type "italian"

This so much. I know what my type is, and what a male version of my type is, and i like that type very much. IN MEN. The women i find beautiful look NOTHING like me. I find very beautiful the look of Zooey Deschanel for example, sweet, blue eyed, innocent look. While my look is more femme fatale/italian/big lips/big eyes, etc.

I have dark hair and eyes and am not pale. Historically, I've been attracted to those traits in women. Not exculsively, mind you, but the overwhelming bias has been towards that.

Actually, my husband IS quite opposite from me, more than my answers suggest (it's just that I don't have a lot of preferences all-around). He looks very different and is very different in a lot of ways. But, for the most part, a complimentary difference.
