9 Subtle, Low-Key Cute Things Girls Do That Men Can’t Get Enough Of. A great article by Dan Scotti. See details below.
Okay, so this article is more for those in the dating stage, but I'd like to add one to this list:
10. "You can put me in my place" - James Russell Lingerfelt
I love a woman who can challenge me, and rightly correct me when I'm wrong. Because not only does this tell me that she has the intellectual capacity, but that she also knows me. To me, that's hot. She cares about me enough to call me out, too.
I pretty much agree with Dan's list below, but I just had to throw my own #10 in there. But let me say, not all guys like watching sports. I will play a sport before watching it, any day. So think of this principle: You're joining him in his favored recreation. "Recreational companionship" is known to be a major need for a man in a romantic relationship.
9. When you try and watch sports with us
I love it when you’re laid up next to me, watching a Knicks game. Even though I know you don’t have the slightest clue of what’s going on, or what a “Carmelo” is – it’s the fact that you’re trying to share my interests that I’m attracted to.
Don’t try too hard, please. It’s equally as sexy when you’re watching the Yankees, hoping for a touchdown. Just know that when the game is over, and the spotlight returns back, fully, on you – no matter the outcome, you the real MVP.
8. When you rap along to gangsta/misogynistic hip-hop lyrics in the car
When the Carter III shuffles onto my iPod, while we’re out driving, and you smirk at me before rapping along – it’s the sexiest.
Especially when 75% of the verse you just rapped consisted of straight up gangsta words. In fact, you really didn’t know most of the lyrics outside of those words; regardless, it was slightly embarrassing, and you still looked bad doing it.
Don’t worry, the good kind of bad.
7. When you don’t wear makeup
Once you’re truly attracted to a girl, makeup isn’t ever needed. By that point in a relationship, looks have taken a backseat to every other aspect of a person’s makeup, and when you recognize this – and say “screw it” – it’s irresistible.
I know you wore all that makeup when we met to impress me, but by now you already know you got it. Things are always more attractive when they’re natural, anyway.
It may be subtle, and I know we just hit the deli quick for a coffee, but when you sidestep that mascara, it shows me that I’ve made you comfortable. Around me, and with yourself.
6. When you wear my clothes
Watching you standing in my house draped in my retro Larry Johnson jersey or one of my over-worn vintage rock tees, makes me never want to leave my home. It’s the sexiest seeing you wear my clothes.
Yeah, partly because I have immaculate taste in clothing. But mostly because they’re always a few sizes too big on you, and the way it hangs loose off your shoulders is just too inviting. It's Wow.
5. When you offer to cook something
When you’re down to cook for the boy, you’ve already found the key to my heart. It’s fine if you’re not a 5 star chef, I never expect that. By simply trying to cook you show me that you’re willing to help me out, and offer a break from the typical night out on the town.
Chances are, if you’ve survived a few dates out with me, I probably like you. If I like you, I’m probably not going to skip town based on your kitchen skills, or lack thereof.
If your attempt to cook for me turns out to be a total fail, it’s even more adorable. Hey, you tried. Worst case, the only thing you’ll have to make for dinner is the reservation.
4. When you wear a baseball cap, forwards
I find it oh-so-tempting whenever I see a girl wearing a baseball hat, forwards. No, not like those times when your girl friends steal your snapback off your head, and throw it on haphazardly – before making a duck face and asking their friend to snap a picture.
I’m talking about when a girl buys her own hats, and wears them properly.
Most girls won’t have the swagger to entertain the notion of a baseball cap, but you pull it off, slightly – at least I think. I’m pretty sure that the fact that you look a little awkward is why it’s subtly sexy.
Sure, you look look tomboyish, but it’s in a Maria Sharapova sort of way. That’s never a bad thing, believe me.
3. When you know exactly which buttons to push, and when to push them
I notice when you try and push my buttons, and I usually laugh, – which always makes it worse – but I’m not trying to mess with you. That, I promise.
But when you know exactly which buttons to push, and go ahead and push them, it shows you truly know me. I’m down with that, and truthfully, the fact that you’re trying to get me hot and bothered… works.
Probably not in the way you’d like, though.
2. Pretty much anything you do, fresh out of the shower
When you step out of the shower, wrapped in a towel, with your hair dripping – you know you’ve got me wrapped around your finger. Extra credit if you try and make small talk, half naked, still wet, while looking for something to wear.
Don’t ask me to suggest anything because I’m only going to delay the process.
1. When you say my name
Regardless of how many times my name might get called on a given day, hearing you say it will never get old. It’s just different.
My boys call me by my last name. My mom will use my first one, but usually after I did something wrong. When you say it, it just sounds right.
I don’t know. I’m no narcissist, but I could hear you say my name on loop. You’ve got your nicknames for me, and I smile when you use them, but nothing can touch the way you say my given, first, name.
Whether you’re mad, or need something, or just really, I don’t know, passionate about “something” – hearing you say my name is always irresistible.
