This is a good question! I've always wondered why I don't attract the male version of me--maybe it's true opposites attract!

Me: late 20s, fair coloring, average height, normal BMI, shoulders and chest large for my size, strong legs, conservative clothing, no piercings or tattoos...I get told I look Russian but I don't see it .

The guys who show an interest: immigrants of any age from Southern Asia or Middle East; Latinos of any race, age or country; U.S.-born white or black guys who are 20+ years older than I am; white guys around my age who have something "off" about them (e.g. mental illness, issues about sexuality, social pariah, extremes in physical appearance).

I am aware that getting attention from certain groups is like a free space in bingo. I really admire those people who wear their heart on their sleeve when it comes to romance and sexual attraction, but I know I would get in trouble if I act like that.

My shoulders and skin are liked a lot by women. By tradition, we take coconut oil baths every week, so my skin stays well nourished.

As for who I look like, I leave that decision to you. I haven't compared myself with popular figures in terms of looks.

Adi, I need details on the coconut oil baths. I'm always on the lookout for a new beauty regimen.

I don't bath with it, I do slather it on my body. Have been using it for the past year, I love coconut oil, great for the scalp and hair and cooking too.

I'm white, black and Native American -- Choctaw and Cherokee, with dark hair, brown eyes, 5'9.5", with olive complexion, high cheekbones, full lips, big smile, piercings, and a lot of visible tattoos... or you can just see my photos.

I've attracted men or varying types of all ages and ethnicities, from classic nerds/geeks, highly educated professionals, creative/artistic-minded, tattooed/pierced, military. And their looks vary from below average to well above average (extremely handsome/gorgeous).

Husband:

6'2" white guy with olive complexion, dark brown hair, hazel eyes, athletic build (martial arts instructor),

Here is what I have learned to do:

Rub Coconut oil onto your hair and body. Preferably apply a bit more in proportion to your armpits and privates due to more dirt.

Allow your body to absorb the oil.

Apply Acacia Concinna extract to your body to scrub off the oil. Remember to rub on and wash off gently. Doing this is effective in removing dirt and dandruff absorbed by coconut oil.

Enjoy your all natural smooth glowing hair and skin . An additional advantage here is that this showering method ensures no need for a deodorant. Just spread on a bit of perfumed talc, and you are good to go.

I have basically given away my looks seceret .

I love coconut oil on my hair (use it almost daily) but I am definitely going to do this ^^^^

I'll start.

Latino guy here and I get told I look like Adam Rodriguez quite a lot, have a similar coloration as him and I am 6"2. Get a lot of attention from darker indian and black women but I am not interested in most of them (unless they are the kind of indian women who look like Sunny Leone and Bollywood types but those don't give me any attention at all).

Also get quite a lot of attention from redheads and gingers which I do not understand but I am happy because I have had a lot of fun times with them. Some blondes are into me too unless they are the bimbo types with heavy tans and the ones doing their best to look attractive. The few Italian women I have met have loved me too.
Height: About 6'2" with long legs.
Weight: 140 pounds
Age: 22
Hair color brown (it's sort of wavy)
Eye color: Blue
Skin color: Pale

I'm Caucasian as well. I want a woman who is like this:

Intelligence: I don't care like some people do. I would likely get irritated when dating a woman who is so intelligent to where I can't keep up with what they're implying or trying to say. I love woman who have my level of intelligence as they don't expect much.

Personality: A woman who is kind and physically attracted to me. One who tries to make a relationship work with us both being passionate about it. They'd probably need to approach me, and I personally don't expect one to be famous or anything like that. If they're quirky but are extremely nice and not shy to me with excessive energy, then that would be a positive.

Hair color: I like long hair as that is what woman should have in my opinion. Brown hair is my preference (blonde is too pretty for me).

Eye color: Doesn't matter.

Height: 5'3"-5'9" (not many woman are 5'9" from what it seems unfortunately).

Weight: Don't care.

I am not shallow when it comes to physical appearance as long as they're around my age, sweet and caring (I try to be the same). I also am attracted to woman who are at the same time understanding of my issues and would remain patient with them liking the same stuff (also being able to listen for hours).

I would post a photo, but it's more intriguing to describe it. I'm also shocked that we have a bunch of people who are are average height in this thread as usually everybody would claim 6'11" or something.

36, 5'7, size 12, hazel eyes, full lips, medium length brown hair, golden brown skin tone, Hispanic. Lately I've gotten a range of men- doctors, company management, old men, young men, artistic men, nerdy men interested in me. Men of all color. I'm married to a computer nerd and love him to pieces. I don't have a particular type of man I'm interested in. I tend to find something attractive in 99% of men whether it be something physical or mental.
