11 Men Reveal The Random Things They Never Expected To Be Attracted To

“Best of Elite Daily” stream in the Bustle AppIf you've ever seen an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you know that Kourtney Kardashian has a habit of brushing her hair back with her fingers and tossing it to one side for a very enviable bed-hair look. I'm no expert on all the things that turn men on but I doubt this slick move ever goes unnoticed.

I know because I'm guilty of it too, although I've always thought it looks way more glamorous when she does it. I mean, she's a Kardashian and they've more or less cornered the market on hair goals. A guy I was interested in mentioned that he loved when I did it; he couldn't explain why, just that it was weirdly very attractive. To this day, it's still something I do about a hundred times a day — more out of habit than any desire to turn guys on — and I still don't know why it's like catnip to guys. If I had to guess, I'd say the casual messiness of the finished look is probably what guys imagine we look like after sex or after we've spent the night with them — a turn-on for obvious reasons.

If you're still not sure what the Kourtney Kardashian is, it looks a little bit like this.

So why do we care? No one knows, really. Apparently, it's just one of those random things that guys find attractive. Here are a couple other things guys say they never expected to be attracted to but totally are.

Well, this is good to know.

The social thing is for girls to have a huge tits, but my girlfriend has smaller ones and I find them very very attractive. Obviously I am biased, but I think it’s the fact that she doesn’t think they’re attractive which makes me like them even more.


OK, this is kind of adorable.

Winter clothes. A lady pulling off a mitten with her teeth to use her phone or light a cigarette is the Minnesota version of a slow-motion beach walk.


Who knew?

Her subtle birthmark.


Turns out, guys do want to hear about your Pinterest boards.

It's really interesting when a girl has a hobby. It's interesting if she can talk about it or she takes pictures about it that aren't really just pictures of her. It's cool when she has a passion for something other than herself.


This also happens to be our favorite thing to do.

When girls can talk sh*t back to me. I use sarcasm a good amount and someone who can give a quip back to me immediately has my interest.


Whoever said guys don't pay attention to little details was wrong, obviously.

I like those two little dimples above a girl's butt.


This is why you should always be yourself.

I love dumb laughs in girls. One girl I used to like would laugh like a donkey when she would laugh really hard, and it embarrassed her so she would try to cover her face, and it just made her laugh more.
I saw her fake laugh plenty of times, so I loved that I was able to get this kind of laugh from her sometimes.


BRB... out shopping for a "classy but sexy signature scent."

How they smell. Nothing is more attractive than a woman with a classy but sexy signature scent.


For the record, we'd like it if guys did this, too.

A chick that takes care of her bathroom.


Regina George was wrong. It is perfectly fine to agree that you're really pretty.

Was on a date last week, the first after coming out of a 6 year relationship. I gave her a compliment and she just accepted it, didn't try to put herself down or anything. That was a bit alien to me and I loved it. Instantly thought so much better about her, confidence is sexy.


Wow! OK!

To be honest... I usually notice, before anything else, that a woman is completely happy and satisfied with herself. The most attractive woman to me is a woman who does not NEED a partner, but wants someone to tag along on her adventures.


Sometimes, you're attracted to something simply because you're attracted to the person doing it and that's the only explanation anyone really needs.
