The dating game can be tough at times, we know that. Yet, all too often, we're making it harder on ourselves than we realize. You see, all those little foibles and great big flaws that we see in ourselves? It turns out that many other people really like them. They are not turnoffs, but instead, they can be big wins.
Today, we'd like to share with you a bunch of things that women are really self-conscious about—but that thousands of Redditors say they find really attractive. So love yourself and enjoy this list of beautiful qualities that you might worry about, but shouldn't!
1. Don't Cover Up Your Laugh
"A girl I'm close to RARELY laughs around me because she thinks her laugh is ugly, I personally love her laugh and try extra hard to make her laugh because of the way it makes me feel. She always covers her mouth with both hands so she wouldn't show her smile. Her smiles make my day every time, so it makes me sad to see her cover her smile."
2. Best Not To Laugh At Her Hair When You Like It
"I think I accidentally made my girlfriend extra self-conscious about her messy hair even though I love it. In the morning when her hair was a mess I'd jokingly put my rubber ducky in it and call it my nest. She laughed at first but I won't be doing it anymore."
3. Feel Free To Blush
"Blushing. I find it really cute when a girl blushes," said one Redditor—and then over 2,000 people agreed with them. It's got to be true.
4. Eat Like A Wild Thing
"One time I watched my girlfriend devour like eight tacos in one sitting like an animal, and it was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen her do."
5. Keep Your Freckles In Focus
"Freckles. I knew too many girls that thought their freckles were unattractive but I find them irresistible." Nearly 5,000 folks agree with this Redditor.
6. Unleash Your Inner Einstein
"My girlfriend gets self-conscious about going off on psychology rants because I study engineering. But I find anyone with a passion for anything extremely attractive and admirable."
7. The Super Sound Of Silence
"A girl who is really quiet. It makes me feel very comfortable with them, like I don't have to talk either," admits one nervous Redditor.
8. Lovable Imperfections
"My girlfriend gets worried about her eyebrows not being symmetrical and her Bell's Palsy caused her smile to drop on one side, which I also don't care about & find attractive. Perfect symmetry is not as attractive as imperfections that I love so much. :)"
9. Speaking Up When You Need To
"Honesty. A woman who is able to speak up about what is and is not working for her in our relationship gives me faith that the relationship can work out in the long term because we will be able to talk about issues before they become big problems and engender bitterness and resentment. Since I'm interested in a marriage that will last my whole life, that is very attractive to me."
10. Looking Up Or Down (Or Both) Works For Some
"I find both exceptionally tall women and exceptionally short women to be incredibly attractive. I get why women tend to be self-conscious about their height, but it's not something I would ever change about them."
11. Growing Old Gracefully
"Getting older doesn't make a woman less attractive, it just gives you character. Maturity and experience are, in my opinion at least, hotter than unblemished youth."
12. That Ghostly Look Gives People The Shivers
"I find dark rings around eyes (from tiredness, etc.) really attractive, especially if the girl with them has dark hair and pale skin," confesses 8-tentacles.
13. Following Your Nose
"I'm a pretty seriously obsessed with girls' noses. If your nose is too wide, too long, up turned, weirdly flat, or something else so unusual that the language to describe it doesn't exist, then I'll probably fall in love on sight."
14. Rose-Tinted Glasses?
"I recently (over the last few years) met a few girls who are super self-conscious about wearing glasses. I've always found it to be cute, but maybe that's just because I wear glasses/contacts so I know what it's like. Who knows?"
15. Feel Free To Take A Dig At Me
"Many women seem to hit the mute button on their sense of humor around men, which is a drag because I and many men like sharp-witted women and can handle a roast every now and then. Then I can relax too."
It's a strange world we live in where we can get so nervous about nothing. We love you and the world loves you just the way you are.
