We will begin this article by reiterating the fact that every guy has a certain type when it comes to girls. While some like romantic girls, some like pragmatic ones. While some prefer strong and independent girls, some prefer homely and feminine girls. Blondes, redheads, long, short, skinny, curvy...... there are so many factors to weigh in for a man. But despite all the differences and factors, there are certain qualities that 99% of boys want in their girls.

What to Look For in a Girl

If you’re new to the world of relationships or even dating, there are certain things to keep in mind if you want a girl who’s a keeper.

She loves and enjoys life

Not many guys like the type of girl who is a recluse that shuts herself in her room with her book or her laptop for days at an end. Sure, once in a while it’s okay, but not every single day!


She isn’t dramatic or manipulative

Well, of course, this goes both for guys and girls. A person, irrespective of the gender, becomes instantly unattractive when the cunning and manipulative nature is exposed. Why? Because playing mind games can become exhausting after a while, and nobody has the time or energy to put into such useless tricks!


She has a great personality

A cliché, we know. But it’s there for a reason. Because after the looks have faded, it’s the personality that will still make a girl attractive to you.


She makes you laugh

This is an important quality when you’re wondering about what to look for in a girl. Making you laugh is important, because life isn’t always about bills and taxes. It’s also about fun and laughter. She should know how to look at the funny side of things and live a life of fun and happiness.


She respects you

Again, this is a gender neutral quality. Your partner should respect you for who you are and what you do, not how good you look or how big your bank balance is. She should treat you like an equal, and not as an inferior. A small number of boys prefer bossy girls, but that number is small enough to be negligible.


She likes and wants sex

Oh yeah. Prudes don’t turn any boy on. It’s no secret that boys like sex. But what they like more than sex is a girl who is comfortable wanting sex from him. And the cherry on top of the cake is a girl who is willing to experiment in the sack!


She is not clingy or possessive

What to look for in a girl? Being needy and obsessed are surely unattractive and are major turn offs. Desperate to be with a man, overly suspicious or watching over him 24x7 – it’s neither possible nor desirable. Instead, girls who are strong, confident and independent are the type liked and respected by men.


She is trustworthy

This one’s a no-brainer. Boys cannot be in any relationship with a girl who lies, cheats and/or deceives. A relationship based on mistrust does not last long, and is full of stress and doubts. It is always better to stay away from such girls in the very beginning than to let your heart be broken in the end by them.


She takes care about her appearance

Now, looks and genes are different matters. No girl can be "pretty" when she’s not. However, many girls overcome their lack of looks by dressing up smartly/stylishly, so much so that attention is completely taken off their face and is focused on what they’re wearing. Also, no boy wants to be with a girl who is a slob and dresses like a homeless woman, right? Appearances matter, ladies.


She is mature

Throwing tantrums, creating drama wherever she goes, and being sneaky or pushy are all traits better suited for teenagers than for adults. A lady has to be classy and mature. She has to be emotionally stable (occasional outbursts are okay) and understands the changing situations around her. Nobody likes to date a spoilt brat.


She is smart

What to look for in a girl? Intelligence matters for looks can be attractive for only so long. Beyond that, personality and intelligence are what that matters. “Dumb” girls might get a lot of one night stands, but, ultimately, it’s the smart ones who snag the committed ones. In the long run, a girl who is an airhead will often be considered as a turn off, because there’s a lot more to a girl than just staring at her pretty face or body. Before long, you’re bound to be bored of her.


She can make the conversation flow

Communication is a two-way street and is the basis of a strong relationship. Girls don’t have to read a lot of books to hold on to a conversation or have opinions on a wide variety of topics. But if she is unable to show interest or at least have a conversation about each other's areas of interest, there won’t be much to talk about and no need to keep each other around.


She is loyal

Again, this one goes without saying. A girl, who cannot be committed in a relationship and loyal to her guy, isn’t the type of girl boys would want to hang around for more than a few nights.
