Gorgeous Women: What Makes Them So Damn Attractive

We all want to be seen as attractive, but most of us are going about it all wrong. Gorgeous women all have a certain je ne sais quoi that has very little to do with physical beauty and a lot to do with qualities that literally anyone could aspire to. Here’s what makes the most beautiful women in the world so damn irresistible.

  1. They take pride in their appearance. Note that this doesn’t mean looking like Kim Kardashian or wearing a full face of makeup every time they leave the house. Rather, gorgeous women focus on what makes them feel good about themselves. They practice good hygiene, dress appropriately for the places they’re going, and always look presentable wherever they go. It’s hard not to notice women who are so put together.
  2. They’re decisive and go after what they want. They don’t hesitate or waffle when it comes to making decisions. They know what they want quickly and when they do, they go for it. From larger things like relationships and careers to little ones like where they want to grab dinner, they’re resolute and self-assured. They’re also not afraid to voice their opinions and aren’t easily swayed to change them unless there’s a really good reason. That’s sexy.
  3. They walk with an air of confidence. There’s something in the way gorgeous women walk down the street that just screams hotness. There’s a certain pep in their step, something intangible that makes them hold their heads high. Their steps are strong and poised, like they know everyone is watching them and they like it that way. It’s hard to take your eyes off women who stride around like they run the world. After all, they do.
  4. They know what they bring to the table. It’s that same sense of confidence we mentioned before. They’ve spent a long time learning about themselves, improving themselves, and loving themselves. Because of this, they know how special they are and how many incredible qualities they have to offer friends, partners, employers, and more. They never lose sight of the things that make them so unique. Their self-worth never falters, and that’s impressive.
  5. They dress to suit their body type. Let’s get one thing clear: women should wear whatever they want, whenever they want. However, knowing how to dress your body type to accentuate your best features and show off your assets is a true gift. Gorgeous women always seem to know exactly what will look good on them, largely because they never wear things that don’t make them feel great. Regardless of their shape or size, they always look like a million bucks.
  6. They look after themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. They make sure to move their bodies regularly, eat nutritious food, go to therapy, and they practice self-care. They know that you can’t pour from an empty cup so they do the work to make sure they’re at their best. That means putting in the work to keep their minds in a good place and their bodies in good health. Without those things in place, they know they can’t be at their best.
  7. They’re self-sufficient and independent. Gorgeous women know they don’t need to be in relationships to do everything they want to in life. They have killer careers that allow them to not just provide for themselves but thrive too. They also cherish their independence, knowing that life is what you make of it and they’re not about to let it pass them by. While they appreciate the power of friendship and have a tight social circle, they also find comfort and joy in their own company.
  8. They embrace their sexuality. They don’t shy away from the fact that they love sex and intimacy, whether in committed relationships or casually. They’re not ashamed of being sexual beings. Instead, they feel empowered by it. They know what they like in bed and what they don’t and they’re not afraid to try new things. Sex is to be enjoyed and feeling pleasure is one of the best parts of life. They know that and they take it to heart.
  9. They’re intelligent and curious about the world around them. Book smarts, streets smarts — they’ve got it all. Gorgeous women really do believe that knowledge is power and they’re always seeking more of it. They want to know everything about everything and they’re on a constant quest to make it happen. They know that there’s no excuse for ignorance and that education is the best way to connect with and understand the world around them. You’ll often find them with their head in a book or furiously looking something up to learn more about it. That’s just how they roll.
  10. They feel gorgeous. This is perhaps the most important item on this list. Gorgeous women know that they can be as physically attractive as possible, but if they don’t feel it inside, it means nothing. They embrace all of the wonderfully quirky and unique characteristics they have, as well as the flaws and imperfections that make them so unique and special. After all, they know better than anyone that beauty is about celebrating the things that make you who you are rather than relying on external appearances.
