10 Traits That Make A Man Irresistible, But Not Necessarily Dateable

Wanting someone and wanting to date that person are two completely different things. Just because you’re drawn to a guy, that isn’t necessarily a sign that he’s the one for you. Here are 10 traits that make a man irresistible, but not necessarily dateable:

  1. An insane level of confidence.Everyone appreciates confidence. It’s one of the sexiest traits a person can possess. But confidence can also be rooted in self-delusion, end up just being cockiness, or stem from a long series of successful one-night stands. It takes a lot more than confidence to be boyfriend material.
  2. A bad boy persona. Bad boys can be so hot and difficult to turn down. The danger is sexy, and when they show you a glimpse of their vulnerable side, you melt. Sure, some bad boys can make great life partners, but you’re going to need a lot more information on this guy before you upgrade him from ‘going nowhere hookup’ status, because the odds are not in his favor.
  3. Fierce ambition.He has dreams and a plan. He’s fierce and his drive is intoxicating. Two ambitious people can catapult each other to the next level, but if his ambitions don’t include love, he’ll most likely leave you in his dust.
  4. A killer sense of humor. The funny guy is great at breaking your walls down and making you feel comfortable. A man with a great sense of humor is also intelligent and intuitive, and he can feel like the whole package. And he might be — as long as there’s a mature and serious side to him, as well.
  5. A loyal, tight knit family. Sometimes a man’s family is even more appealing than he is! They’re loving, supportive, and a hell of a lot of fun. But at the end of the day, you’re not actually dating his entire family. When the relationship hits some rough patches, you can bet on them rallying around him and never being on your side.
  6. A fiery passion in the bedroom.Good sex can lead to a great relationship, but it can’t thrive on that alone. It’s tempting to date your great hookup because it feels like there must be a special connection there, but often times people find that connection doesn’t feel the same once everyone has their clothes on.
  7. An amazing scent.A man who smells great can seduce almost anyone. Every time he comes near, you are reminded of the last time he made your toes curl. But scents are often bought in a bottle, and there’s no correlation between a great smell and a great life partner.
  8. Fresh style.There’s something very appealing about a man who has his own style and takes pride in his appearance. But are you interested in more than just his appearance? When he looks really good, sometimes it can be hard to tell.
  9. A rock hard body.All those hours at the gym sure do pay off in the physique department, but they won’t make him a better boyfriend. Some hotties make great partners and others do not, so try to get to know a guy before falling in love with his muscles.
  10. A flawless track record.Women don’t turn him down and his ex’s don’t hate him. You feel like something must be amazing about this man, because his track record is stellar. You’re pretty curious about what he can bring to the table, but remember- all these women aren’t still will him for a reason. You just don’t know what it is yet.
