    Is it just looks because it seems that way
    Personality means nothing around where i live
    You dont have the looks, you just get laughed at in the street
    So what do girls actually look for in a guy nowadays?

    What makes you say that personality means nothing?

    The people laughing at you in the street are the shallow, boring ones you don't want to end up with anyway.

    Ambition, determination to succeed, caring, intelligent, ability to debate/argue/stand up for self, and deep (like in a philosophical way idk guess this goes with smart)- for me it's 40% looks. Gotta have some attraction there in the first place but remember it only takes a tiny spark to light a bonfire

    A good personality and looks I would think 🤔 But it seems like looks, abs and height are all people care about nowadays 😳

    If personality means nothing around where you live then just ignore them (they have the wrong priorities). (sensible) girls want someone that will treat them with respect and make them feel special ( the girl will then reciprocate this). The key in getting into a good relationship is not by changing who you are to suit other people's tastes but it is by being 100% yourself and finding someone else who likes you for you.

    To me I like a guy who is:
    Funny
    Has a nice smile
    Friendly
    Caring
    Open minded
    Has hobbies- it makes them seem interesting
    Enjoys music as much as me (bonus)

    But tbh don't feel bad because you haven't found someone yet. Stuff like this can't be rushed and you're still young

    It'll vary from girl to girl but for me personally -

    Faithful
    Animal lover
    Empathetic
    Similar interests as me in games, music, films
    Funny and can take a joke
    Has an interest in science
    Mature but still have a lighthearted side
    Wants the same things as me in life when it comes to major things such as we both want to get married, both agree whether or not have to kids etc

    Looks were never a big deal for me. I'm with someone who gets laughed at for his weight, his fashion sense, his acne, his keloid scars and at the end of the day, those who laugh are just bloody bitter. They don't deserve a second thought and I can guarantee anyone who laughs at you is a lot more insecure than you are.

    Girls. Not women.

    Those girls prefer little skinny 10stone boys with skinny packs to beefy 14stone guys of 170cm height and 14% body fat :P

    Confidence goes a long way.

    But looks, personality and comparability are important too.

    Someone I can have a conversation with. If it's awkward to be around a guy or we have nothing in common then it's not going to last.

    Pretty sure he meant females tbh.

    But anyway, I meant by women girls who are mature. Some would be 17. Some 18. Some older. Not kids basically.
