I get asked all the time what my type is. I usually don't have much of an answer. One: I'm not really that picky. Two: looking back, there isn't really a common thread amongst the guys that I have been attracted to (at least appearance-wise). No specific height, eye-colour, skin-colour, build, blah blah blah. As far as that stuff goes, I have been all over the place.
The only real commonality would be personality. I'm not really sure where this whole "some people are attracted to bad boys" thing comes from but that is definitely not me. I like nice guys. I can do without the bad-boy drama. Life is full of enough problems and relationships are hard as it is without adding problem-prone people to the mix. So far, every guy I have been attracted to is (or at least seemed like) a nice guy.
As for what I look for:
-He doesn't need to be Einstein, but I do need someone to be somewhat intelligent (there is no real way to say that without sounding arrogant...unfortunately).
-Non-smokers are a plus.
-Empathy is really important to me. Generally speaking (not specific to romantic relationships), I hate it when people are unable to see things from other peoples' perspectives...not that I'm innocent of that. It's all the more important in a romantic relationship though.
-Someone who is laid-back. I'm a bit high-strung myself, so being with someone else who is also is probably not a good idea.
-Someone who isn't lazy. I just can't deal with that.
-A guy who takes care of himself. He doesn't need to be in "model" shape, but eating healthy and getting some exercise is important. If he doesn't do that it will end up me mimicking those bad habits...which is obviously not good.
In a lot of ways, I guess the guy I'm looking for is the kind of guy I (at least) try to be.
So, what is your type?
P.S. I will say I'm a sucker for a guy with a nice smile and beautiful eyes.
