What do men want? It's an age-old question that women think they have found the answer to. They feel that most men want a beautiful woman who is also fun. The reality is that men are looking for a lot more than that. So what exactly are they looking for? Well, an easy way to explain what men are looking for is by telling you what they aren't looking for. The following are seven things that men find unattractive about a woman:
1. Wearing Too Much Makeup
Makeup is a great form of self-expression but when it's done in excess, it's something men find unattractive. Rather than slathering on a full face of makeup, opt for a more natural look with minimal makeup. Basically, go for a look that's not going to rub off on his shirt when he hugs you.
2. Gossiping About People
Gossiping and talking about other's business is a very unattractive quality. No one wants to see their partner reveling in another person's misfortune. So when you are gossiping about other people's lives and their issues, it shows that you are juvenile and insensitive.
3. Being Too Clingy
Being clingy is a major thing that men find unattractive. You need to have your own life and give him some space. If you insist on spending every second with him, you're only going to push him away. This also applies to contacting him constantly. Keep calling and texting to a minimum.
4. Being Full of Yourself
Confidence is one thing, narcissism is another. Men like women who are confident, but not arrogant. It's okay to be proud of who you are, but it is not okay to brag about yourself and act like you are better than others.
5. Complaining About Everything
Nobody wants to be with someone who is negative all the time. Complaining about everything is a sure-fire way to turn a guy off. Men would rather be with a woman who chooses to see the good in things, instead of a woman who constantly has something bad to say.
6. Talking About Your Ex All the Time
Talking about your ex all the time will definitely send a man running for several reasons. If you're always mentioning your ex, whether it be good things or bad things, it just seems like you are hung up on the past. No guy wants to get involved with someone who isn't over their ex.
7. Partying Constantly
It's okay to have fun, but there's a fine line between having fun and constantly partying. Dating a “wild child” may be a good idea for a young guy, but as men get older, they want a woman who is more down to earth and would rather stay home than go out and party.
