When you fall in love with someone or begin to develop feelings for them, it’s usually because something about them caught your eye. We all have little quirks that we find attractive in another person. They don’t have to be big and noticeable, in fact, most of the time they’re small and random. Regardless, they are a huge reason we stay with this person long-term.
While you may not be able to put your finger on the exact thing about your partner that drives you wild, Reddit users are sharing the small and random qualities they find irresistible and attractive in another person.
When they talk about me when I’m not there, I imagine it’d be nice to have someone think of you even when you’re not there.
When they smile when they think no one is looking. Then you catch them.
Their mannerisms. I love watching the way people move and talk, just the little ways they do things. I’ve been attracted to a lot of people who aren’t entirely conventionally attractive, but there’s just something about the way that they move that is.
When one side of a woman’s hair hangs in front of her face and she looks at me.
Eye contact. Really its more than that. When she notices things about me, lets me know she is paying attention and likes what she sees.
I love it when my boyfriend sings loudly and poorly in the car with me.
Likes animals. I went home with this guy from the bar once and we were doing that weird thing where both of us know why I’m there but no one wants to make the first move. So he was giving me a tour of his house, and I’m pretending I’m all into architecture and shit. He showed me the back yard and explained that he’d just installed this big privacy fence. While he’s showing me this, an adorable cat comes bounding across the yard. He explained that it was his neighbors cat but it likes to come visit him, so he had the fence installer build a cut out in the fence so the cat could come over any time he wanted. Long story short, I think my ovaries may have literally exploded.
Goofy dance moves. When someone opens up on the dancefloor and gives NO F***S about how they look. Love it!
I am a sucker for freckles.
Stubble! A guy I have absolutely no interest in can pop up one day with a couple of days worth of stubble and suddenly I find them attractive.
When their eyes crinkle when they laugh. It makes the person instantly more attractive.
Their consideration for others time.
Authenticity….I guess that’s not small but it’s really rare and extremely attractive. And I don’t mean “I just speak my mind, it’s not my fault you can’t handle the truth” type. I mean a woman that’s open and honest about her feelings and yes “real”.
That look girls get when they’re super focused on something can be damn hot. And when you catch a glimpse of her eyes, they look like daggers and the moment something distracts them, they soften right back to normal. I love the little details.
A caring woman. Like someone who has that motherly instinct and tries to take care of people. It honestly makes me feel warm inside.
The number of langages they speak.
Really weird but when a guy is making fun of me (but not in a mean way).
I have no idea why but a guy becomes instantly 10x hotter when he starts roasting me. Maybe it’s because most guys only ever compliment the girls they are trying to get with & getting compliments make me act extremely awkward.
I love contrast between a woman’s skin and hair. I love light skin with dark hair. So much more beautiful to me than the typical blonde on a magazine cover, actually.
I love being able to argue with someone and they do not get upset and dish it out just as much back. Bonus points if the argument is dry.
If I can walk away and not be sure if I won or not, but I get a smirk from her, I’m done.
I like the way how my nose and my partners nose touches when we kiss. I think about that more than the actual kiss sometimes.
Little ‘imperfections’ like a crooked nose or a scraggle tooth.
the happy dance girls do when they get food.
A dark twisted sense of humor to match mine. Not cringing when I say fucked up jokes. They’re jokes.
Musical ability. Doesn’t matter what it is although some instruments are sexier than others. Piano or string instruments are nice (dexterity in fingers is hot, what can I say), while singing is kind of hit or miss, depends on the style. Also tuba really hot.
Someone who isn’t afraid to be social. I didn’t realize it until I met my husband, who will talk to anyone. He isn’t afraid of any social situation and never shy’s away from a conversation with anyone. It’s the best.
the way they accept complements. I love it when a girl blushes and turns away after I tell her how beautiful she looked that day.
When her ear looks out of her long hair, don’t know why but it’s so cute.
Really good tattoos on both women and men. Men who have good taste in footwear. So many men wear terrible shoes.
Random small talk, especially if it’s like a “hey I like your shirt” or something similar. I’m super anxious so small talk like that makes my day sometimes.
I love a person that writes well. I can really appreciate a well written email or text message. There is just something so attractive about the ability to speak and write such grace and ease.
