While there may be overarching beauty standards embraced in specific societies, when it comes to individual preference, fortunately, we all have different ideas of what makes someone attractive.
And sometimes it can be hard to know if our own guidelines for what attracts us to someone is hyper-specific to us and a little weird, or if there are others who share our tastes.
So Redditors decided to dish on what the “weirdest thing” they find “extremely attractive” might be — and of course, some of the answers turned out to be more common than one might think.
Eye crinkles on men.
Being able to make a good excel spreadsheet.
When girls adjust or change their hair/hairstyle.
Some women wear bags under their eyes very well.
When a guy’s voice breaks during the deed.
Men’s calves. Snuggling up to those bad boys can be a real turn on!
Backs. A nice back can make a woman so much more attractive.
When men have thick thighs and wear short shorts.
For some unknown reason I’m attracted to people who are left handed.
Houseplants. Chicks with plants are just very hot to me.
When someones multilingual and switches back and forth between languages in a conversation.
When someone youre talking to sticks out their tongue. Had a girl slightly do it on a date and it drove me wild.
The ability to sit through a meal in silence without feeling uncomfortable or self-conscious. That’s a god-tier level of confidence.
Women wearing winter clothing. Earmuffs, winter coats, gloves etc. Am I weird? Yeah, I’m probably weird.
Don’t know why, but exhausted men look super hot to me. Probably because being exhausted is as close as being the real you as possible.
When guys are reversing the car and they put one hand on the back of the passenger seat to look back better…. It…. It makes me vulnerable.
Being able to eat a lemon/lime without making a face. My gf did that on our first date and we’ve been together over a year now!
When people share their TMI moments. There’s something weirdly sexy when someone drops their guard for a moment and gives you a peek behind the curtain of their life.
When a person stifles their laughter. Something about the way their face scrunches up whenever it happens makes my heart flutter for some reason.
My boyfriend will get out of the shower and drape the towel he just used over his head. So he’s standing there completely naked looking like the Virgin Mary with the towel flowing down. We have sex a lot after he showers.
My girlfriend doesn’t have perfect teeth. She’s super insecure about how two of her teeth are a little crooked, but every time she smiles it’s the most adorable thing ever. Something about those slight imperfections just make her that much more perfect.
My husband got himself this bear onesie. The first time he put it on I was like…what is this feeling? Why am I aroused right now? After a few occasions of him wearing it I was like, well I guess I’m a borderline furry.
If you’re soaked with sweat because you worked all day fixing and troubleshooting things, wrinkles on your forehead because you think too much, and you still have the patience to help a neighbor or entertain a kid, I’m jumping your fucking bones.
