What makes a woman irresistible? Is it flowing blond hair, huge boobs, a tiny waist, and long legs? No! That’s a goddamn Barbie doll. The irresistible woman is a REAL woman. Men will fight over their “ideal” type with regards to looks, but when it comes down to it, looks fade. Qualities, however, can be forever, and that’s why the following 18 traits trump looks any day of the week and make any woman attractive.

  1. She’s confident. She knows what she’s capable of and believes in herself.
  2. Her inner beauty shines. When you’re beautiful inside, you’re beautiful outside. Haven’t you seen Shallow Hal?

  4. She sets goals.She doesn’t just float through life without direction. She knows what she wants and spends every day getting closer.
  5. She maintains her health. She understands the importance of a healthy body and healthy mind. Money can buy a lot of things, but two things it can’t buy are health and happiness.
  6. She’s always looking to improve.She’s never finished learning. The world is so vast and full of information, why would she ever want to stagnate? She actively pursues education.

  8. She knows what’s important. She knows when to put family, friends and relationships first, and when to put them second. She can prioritize.
  9. She’s strong. Not Superwoman strong, but mentally and emotionally strong. She doesn’t depend on others or crumble at the first sign of a challenge.
  10. She doesn’t judge. While it’s nearly impossible not to have preconceived judgments growing up in our culture, she does her best to not judge others before getting to know them and their background.
  11. She’s always looking out for others.She doesn’t just put herself first without thinking about the effects her actions will have on her family, friends, and even the complete stranger.
  12. She’s respectful. She’ll hear your side of the argument and will never go out of her way to disrespect someone she doesn’t agree with.

  15. She’s forgiving. She doesn’t hold grudges indefinitely and knows when to put something behind her.
  16. She’s humble. Oh yeah, she knows she’s irresistible, but she doesn’t go around flaunting it. That would give her an ego, and egos can lead you down an ugly path.
