What makes a woman attractive?

Being attractive goes beyond good looks, even though it could start from there because there are habits that make you look beautiful.

Attractiveness has more to do with what is inside of you, what you think of yourself and others, and your perception of things.

Perhaps one of my lecturers’ statements, which remains indelible in my memory, is, “Your personality is more important than your capacity.”

An experienced industrial and organizational psychologist who has been a member of countless interview panels, he explained that, during interviews, an individual’s personality makes up 60% of what an employer looks for and that having high grades doesn’t matter that much. Employers are more interested in who you really are.

There are some distinct attitudes and behaviors that endear people to you, a combination of attributes that makes you attractive.

12 Qualities of Attractive Women

1. Integrity


Qualities of an Attractive Woman

Integrity is simply the quality of being honest, keeping your word, and following through on your commitments. 

Honesty makes you appealing because people feel safe with you.

Even dishonest people will never deal with dishonest people like themselves.

When people know they can trust your opinions because you say them as they are, when they know their secrets are safe with you, and when they know you’ll never stab them in the back, they’ll want to stay around you.

I stayed away from a potential friend when I was in nursing school because she gossiped about others to me and also lied a lot.

Before I knew it, I was exaggerating as well.

I had to quit the budding friendship because I knew I couldn’t trust her.

One day, she would gossip about me to others.

You can’t be an insincere person and expect to be attractive to others.

Remember, attractiveness goes beyond looks.

I must give you this warning, though, that not everyone will find your integrity attractive.

Some people will find you intimidating.

Some will think you are doing too much.

That’s okay because those are not the kind of people you want to be around anyway.


2. Competence

Qualities of an Attractive Woman


Women who are good at what they do are super attractive!

There’s just something about a woman who knows her stuff and is confident in her abilities.

This doesn’t mean you have to be perfect or never make mistakes.

It means that you are always striving to improve yourself and do your best.

People are drawn to those who are competent because they see them as reliable and capable.

Beauty without competence will not earn you much.

While beauty can draw people (clients, employers, customers, suitors, fans) to you, your competence will convince them that they made the right decision to choose you.

Why do we love women like Oprah Winfrey, Beyoncé, Joyce Meyer, Kerry Washington, Tamera Mowry, Serena Williams etc.?

Because these women are freaking awesome at what they do!

While it’s good to have potential, you need to hone your skills until you become too useful to be ignored.

Whatever it is you do, even if you are a janitor, make sure you do it so well.

Aim to know the tiniest detail about what you do.

Amateurism is not attractive.

As a matter of fact, you don’t need to be the world’s definition of beautiful.

If you are a god at what you do, you’ll become irresistible to the world.

The most beautiful is not always the most attractive.

Wanna be so good at what you do?

I recommend Cal Newport’s bestselling books, Deep Work and So Good They Can’t Ignore You.

They’ll blow your mind.


 3. Humility

Humility makes you attractive and lovable.

No one loves to hang around conceited people who think they are better than others.

Their exaggerated sense of importance makes them repulsive, no matter how popular or accomplished they are.

Humility is not thinking low of yourself; it is not feeling you’re more important than others or that you should be given preferential treatment for whatever reason.

Humility is a willingness to relate to people and treat them with the respect they deserve, no matter their age or socioeconomic status.

Have you observed that people love celebrities and bosses who are humble and approachable?

It is because they feel valued and appreciated by them.

Humility also makes you open to learning from others.

You are not afraid to admit when you don’t know something or when you make a mistake.

This openness and willingness to learn makes you grow as a person and gain the respect of those around you.

So, if you want to be attractive in this world, cultivate humility.

Don’t let your achievements or fame get to your head.

Instead, use it as an opportunity to serve and uplift others.


4. Creativity

Qualities of an Attractive Woman

Creativity is the ability to think outside of the box and come up with new, innovative ideas.

It is the ability to try new things, generate novel ideas, and experiment with things.

Creativity, the mother of adventure and spontaneity, makes you attractive because you won’t be bored or boring. 

Learn to innovate in your life, your looks, your business, your talents, and your environment.

Explore your imagination.

Don’t keep doing the same thing over and over again.

Try to do things differently.

Creativity makes you unpredictable, and that alone makes you a fun person because people cannot always know what you are up to.

Even in romantic relationships, men are drawn to women who are creative and spontaneous.

It’s good to have a style, but add depth and spice to it.

Do you want to be creative?

1. Have an open mind!

You must be willing to explore different perspectives, ideas, and solutions.

This means being receptive to feedback and not being afraid to fail.

2, curious

Curiosity fuels our desire to learn and discover, which leads to new ideas and innovations. 

You can’t be set in your ways if you want to be truly creative.

No, ma’am.

Step out of your comfort zone and try new things, even if they seem daunting at first.

Challenge yourself to think outside the box and come up with unique solutions to problems or tasks.

3. Embrace mistakes and see them as opportunities for growth and learning

Don’t be afraid to take risks and experiment.

Really, this is where true creativity thrives.


P.S: Creativity doesn’t have to manifest in only traditional forms like art or music. 

Before you think you don’t have any business with being creative, think again. 

Creativity can be expressed through problem-solving, communication, or even everyday tasks like cooking or organizing. 

In fact, creativity can be a valuable tool in marriage, relationships, and parenting, helping you find new and innovative ways to strengthen your bond and connect with your loved ones. 


 5. Smiling

Qualities of an Attractive Woman



Smiling makes you look more beautiful, friendly, and approachable.

It makes people feel at ease with you.

No one wants to stay around someone whose face is all creased in a frown.

Frowning makes you appear disinterested in people and your environment.

You might be a really nice person, but your facial expression is what people see first before getting to know the real you.

If your expression scares people away, they will lose the opportunity to get close to you.

If you went to an organization and were faced with two receptionists—a smiling one and a frowning one—which of them would you approach?

You’re most likely to approach the smiling one.

That’s the power of facial expression.

It can make people fall in love with you.



6.  Good sense of humor

Qualities of an Attractive Woman

Anyone who has the ability to make another laugh is attractive.

Laughter symbolizes happiness; it makes us feel good.

When you have a good sense of humor, just like smiling, it makes people comfortable around you because you come off as friendly and relaxed.

Also, being humorous makes people drawn to you because they know that they don’t have to overthink before talking to you.

People who lack a good sense of humor tend to take offense easily because they don’t see the humor in things.

You don’t necessarily have to be a comedian to have a good sense of humor.

You only need to be creative and positive.

Being negative will make you see the wrong in every conversation and situation.

To boost your sense of humor, read books to sharpen your intelligence, make friends with people who have a good sense of humor, and be open-minded and positive.

Even in romantic relationships, people with a good sense of humor are more likely to find love.

New York Times bestselling author Sherry Argov, in her book, Why Men Marry Bitches, writes, ”Men don’t marry nice women; they marry women who are interesting.”

So, also, a lady is more likely to fall in love with a man who makes her laugh.

7. Authenticity and Genuineness

We live in a world where everyone wants to impress others, even if it means acting like what and who they are not.

A woman who doesn’t pretend to be who she is not is irresistible.

An attractive woman is true to herself and what she likes and dislikes.

She lives life on her own terms.

People love real women, even if they are not real themselves, because being real makes you relatable.

When you are true to yourself, you inspire other people to do the same.


8. Intelligence

Qualities of an Attractive Woman

Intelligence makes a woman super attractive and irresistible.

The ability to hold intelligent conversations with others and be open-minded enough to learn from others is such a desirable trait.

An attractive woman is insatiably inquisitive and is committed to broadening her horizon through personal development and constant learning.

A lot of people claim to be sapiosexual; that is, they are mentally and sexually turned on by intelligent people.

While it’s good to have curves, it’s important to be mentally interesting.

Your looks may draw people’s attention to you, but intelligence sustains their interest in you.

When you are intelligent, people cannot get enough of you, even in love relationships.

Read the habits of a highly smart woman.


9. Passion

A passionate woman is very attractive.

Women who have a burning desire for a certain cause, who know what they’re living for, who understand the importance of their contribution in life, who want something to be done better, and who have something that makes them excited to start the day are found to be attractive.

What’s your passion?

What are you passionate about?

What are you known for?

Passion is a powerful force that makes a woman stand out and shine.

It goes beyond just being interested in something; it is having an intense drive and enthusiasm for it.

Passion shows in everything you do, from your work to your relationships.

Passion not only makes you attractive to others, but it also brings fulfillment and purpose to your life.

It gives you a sense of direction and motivates you to pursue your goals with determination.

I can relate to this because I’m a passionate woman. 


10. Compassion

In today’s selfish world, it’s hard to find someone who genuinely cares about others.

People are likely to be drawn to you if they see that you genuinely care about them.

You don’t have to be perfect; you only need to care.

A woman who has the interest of others at heart is completely irresistible.


11. Confidence

Attractive women are confident in themselves.

This doesn’t mean they are perfect or have a perfect life.

But they love and believe in themselves regardless of their flaws.

Attractive women have a mind of their own.

They don’t act needy or clingy.

They don’t compare themselves to other women.

Their confidence does not come from putting other women down.


12. Happiness

Qualities of an Attractive Woman



A happy woman is irresistible.

You know why?

Because happiness is contagious.

Moods are contagious, so a happy mood is contagious.

No one wants to stay around someone who is always moody.

I personally love to be with happy people because they elevate my mood.

Happiness makes you attractive to others.
