What Makes An Average Guy Instantly Become “Hot”?

What Makes An Average Guy Instantly Become “Hot”?

A guy doesn’t have to look like Ryan Gosling to be considered “hot.” Chances are, you’ve experienced this before: you’re walking along, minding your own business, when you see a guy who’s not super-hot but just has a special something that makes you want to get to know him. Here are 15 things that can make an average guy smoking hot.

1. When he’s unaware that he’s attractive.

Ooh, this is a biggie! A guy who’s got beautiful eyes or a stunning smile but doesn’t walk around like he’s the hottest guy is so, well, hot! It’s like he doesn’t realize that he’s gorgeous, so his humility makes him approachable.

2. When he makes you laugh.

There’s nothing sexier than someone with a great sense of humor. An average-looking guy can easily become the hottest one in the room if he’s witty and always makes you laugh when you’re around him. You’ll associate him with having good times.

3. When he’s got loads of empathy.

A guy who’ll think about what other people are going through or feeling is attractive because he’s not selfish. If you had to date him, he’d be thoughtful and acknowledge your feelings, instead of brushing them off. Taking the time to consider your feelings, boosts his overall attractiveness.

4. When he smells really good.

You reach in for a hug and you smell such an amazing fragrance on him. It’s so sexy! A man who smells good comes across as more polished and confident, which bumps up his attractiveness.

5. When they put their phones face-down on the table.

When you’re around this guy and he doesn’t take any messages or calls, that’s so sexy. He’s giving you his undivided attention and doesn’t seem to care about anyone else or what his followers are doing on social media.

6. When they don’t look at other women.

It’s natural to look around at attractive people, but it’s not cool if the guy you’re with keeps looking at other women as if he’d rather be spending time with them. When a guy makes eye contact with you and looks genuinely interested in what you have to say, that’s hot.

7.  When he’s got a tender side.

One of the reasons why firefighters are sexy is that they rescue cats, which gives them a softness that’s really appealing. So, on a smaller scale, when a man holds a kitten, puppy, or child, it shows that even though he’s strong and tough, he’s got a tender heart.

8. When he laughs at your mother’s jokes.

A guy who not only makes an effort with you but also with your loved ones, such as by laughing at your mom’s corny jokes, is instantly more attractive. It’s about the effort he’s willing to make to be a part of your life.

9. When he walks around confidently.

Sexiness is all about how someone carries themselves. When a man walks around in a confident way, such as by looking up and having good posture instead of slouching, it makes him more attractive, no matter what he looks like.

10. When his eyes light up with passion.

When you’re talking to a guy and he’s telling you about something he’s passionate about, his energy makes him so much more attractive. His eyes light up and he expresses excitement—it’s contagious and you’ll want to bask in his energy.

11. When he remembers details about you.

A guy who has a good memory instantly increases his attractiveness, like when he remembers things you’ve said and what you like or don’t like. It shows that he’s paying attention and keeping you in mind, which—again—is about making an effort.

12. When he knows who he is.

A hot guy who seems wishy-washy or like he doesn’t know what he wants can seem less attractive, especially if he leaves you hanging. By comparison, an average-looking guy who has a strong sense of self and knows what he wants is sexy ’cause he’s confident and goes for what he wants.

13. When he has boundaries with others.

A guy who doesn’t let other people walk all over him has strong boundaries in place. This is attractive because it shows that he respects himself and won’t turn himself into a human doormat. His confidence and self-worth instantly make him more appealing.

14. When he looks after himself.

Any guy can make himself hotter just by paying attention to his personal hygiene and taking care of himself. When he’s freshly showered, wearing cologne, and keeping his body in shape, it’s a sign of self-love—that’s hot!

15. When he knows how to dress. 

A guy who knows how to dress doesn’t have to be a fashionista to increase his sex appeal. By just knowing how to color-coordinate his clothing and choose pieces that bring out his best features, he’ll look more attractive. Bonus points if he makes an effort to look good for you. Swoon.
