I don't care about height. My man is 5'7. I like a lot of muscle and a nice smile. The rest of my 'type' has nothing to do with the physical - sense of humor, intelligence, common interests, compatible personalities.

Yuk. How unattractive is THAT in a guy?
And yes, this is just a rhetorical question.

Answer: severely unattractive.
Women who find themselves attracted to something like that fully deserve the specimen.

I like dimples too. I also like a man with a nice smile.

Physical traits that will likely catch my eye:

-Fuller lips
-Eyes that crinkle when a guy smiles

Looks that seem popular with some women, but don't really attract me:

-blonde men
-shaved or high-and-tight military haircuts (funny, because my fiance is military, but he keeps his as long as regulations allow)
-Lanky, string bean or runner builds

Height has never been a big factor for me...I'm taller for a woman (5'9"), and have dated plenty of men shorter than I am. My fiance is an inch or so taller, and it's been nice in photos and convenient for dancing, but ultimately, it's not a trait that makes the list as important, really. It does mean that I got to purchase flats for our upcoming wedding, and I'm excited to have comfy feet all day!

This is basically my number one. Great smile. With or without dimples.

I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

Ive had to sit through dozens of chick flicks so I know exactly what women want:

You need to first look like Matthew mc whatever or mc dreamy or that gosling dude.

You need to have some majical mind control jedi powers over little kids and animals. And I mean like ALWAYS making them laugh or do tricks or want to play with you. OR the exact opposite. Like be so helpless with a kitten or baby that you are humiliated but just be so adorable while you haplessly fall on your face as you ask her for help.

you need to have a job that shows your creative flair, your ability to lead and your abilitiy to be part of a team...but the leader and and remember the creative part? Something like that, or... Yeah you need to run a shelter for slow greyhounds and you need to teach their puppies to paint and sell those paintings to raise money for a charity for the human orphanage that you spend all your spare time at. You know, that spare time that you use for taking her on hot air ballon rides and building her a canoe or that thing she likes.

if you get challenged by some ruffians you need to be able to dazzle them with the wit and charm like James Bond while dising them with one liners or jokes like dane cook or chris rock and then drop them like a bad habit like steven seagal or tito ortiz.

oh yeah and that job you have that you only work part time at needs to pay you 1 mill a week or at least have a long lost relative die and leave you about 10-200 million, whatever amount makes her feel comfortable that you can adequately provide for her and the 0-25 kids she wants and that you can bankroll that cupcake salon she wants to open - just dont let on you have it and live modestly (but not a slob, just dont flaunt or waste too much of her - i mean - your money being flashy) until you put that huge rock on her finger.

You can have all of that as long as your brain is not the size of a raisin, you will not be as attractive as you think. Case in point: the situation and Justin Bieber just to name a few.
