“Fellas, what’s not as attractive or sexy as women think it is?”

The results are a mix of guys attempting to be funny and some actually decent points (believe it or not) which makes for a pretty entertaining read.

Enjoy the 26 most upvoted things men do not actually find as sexy as women might think.


“Flirting with my dad when trying to make me jealous.”



“Baby voice. Just no.”



” When they take a human appearance over their natural ogre appearance looking at you, Fiona.”



“Hints. We’re not that smart. Just tell us.”



“My current girlfriend would purposely bring conversations to a dead end to see if I would keep talking to her and bring up new topics. She was interested in me and was trying to find out if I was too by continuing to talk to her. However, it came off as she is not at all interested in me and did not want to continue talking to me. Please don’t do this to anyone ever.”



“Acting dumb.”



“Intentionally difficult-to-read signals of interest. I don’t consider myself dumb at all, but I’m no genius either. If it feels like I’m trying to decode hieroglyphs with you, I’m probably gonna give up.”



“Putting other girls down. Gross.”



“Don’t compare us to an ex, even if we have a bigger dick, you’re just building paranoia that were constantly being compared to someone else.” –nnahnhoj



“When they think being crazy is like a positive or attractive thing. Like “Yeah I punch my boyfriend if he doesn’t pay attention to me I’m quirky lol”. Like no you’re just toxic. Abuse isn’t funny when women do it, and I wish we’d quit normalizing it. Granted, we’re getting better. Like when Cardigan Backyardigan talked about how crazy she was like it was a joke and not an abusive relationship. Do unto others, man.”



“Being anything other than genuine. It’s really hard to do, since we’re all scared that if we let people see our true selves, they won’t like us, but the truth is that the true you is the most beautiful you.”



“Basically any intentional misdirection. Like playing games, hard to get, only hinting towards feelings, never saying anything, etc. Like I don’t think I’ve ever looked at someone and went “oh, they can’t communicate at all, god I wanna date them”.” –Blujay1217


“Calling yourself a crazy bitch.” –tr3mbau


“Playing games and hard to get. I want someone who wants to be with me. Also, I’m not gonna get jealous if another guy flirts with you. If anything, it makes me feel good knowing that you want me over some guy I see as more attractive than myself. If you start flirting back to make me feel jealous…well, f*ck you.” –explodingterminals


“Pretending to not notice me. This trend has caught on something fierce after getting my tips frosted.” –CapitalGains42


“Being ultra-dramatic up and down. To be fair I think this works when young women do it with young guys, it draws them in. But as guys emotionally mature and figure out what they want out of life it becomes more of a red flag than a “manic pixie dream girl” situation. The female equivalent of the “bad boy.” –lcl82


“Don’t fake interest in my interests. If you don’t like football or video games just say so.” –Biggestnerdhere


“The Kardashian look. Pumped up lips and a disproportionately large butt are a huge turnoff for me. It’s just not natural.” –37corecneps


“Freakishly over the top moans or saying your cock is so big. Like, I know where I stand, don’t lie.” –Cravingsomelove


“Girls being toxically controlling and overbearing. like a girl not letting her bf have any time to himself and always have to know what he’s doing. And then when you try to see what she’s doing she blows up in your face. Why do girls think that makes them look cute?” –LigmaMelon


“Uncomfortable shoes. I hope you feel attractive and sexy in them, because wow, it’s painful to watch you hobble and struggle through the carpark.” – make_onions_cry


“Being a “bad bitch”. Like basically being someone who loves starting shit and having problems with other people especially other girls. Having “enemies” and acting all hard isn’t cute.” –SmoresWhoresAnd4x4s


“Those lashes that cause typhoons when they blink.” –hungry_lobster


“Drawn on eyebrows. makeup as a whole is fine, but shaving off your eyebrows just to draw them on just turns me off.” –LordCorporation


“Barely eating anything when we go out for food when I know they want more.” –a1565


“Fake nails/super long nails in general.” –Ysara
