Are all guys really as shallow as us girls think they are? For example, do they only care if a girl is hot with a nice body? Do they really only like blonde girls with big boobs? Or is there more to guys then most girls think?
Yes, we men can be shallow brutes – all guys can appreciate a hot bod, and, as I’ve discussed before, many have been known to ogle an ample-chested lady like she was a four-eyed alien.
But not all guys have the same preferences. I’ve also previously written about the fact that the “blonde with big boobs” profile isn’t by any means a universal male predilection. Perhaps certain qualities (e.g. nice legs; an hourglass figure) might be more popular than others (e.g. pretty toenails; a “sexy” forehead), but the truth is that between all of the guys I know, none of them are equally attracted to all of the same qualities their friends are. There’s a guy for every type of girl out there!
The second piece of good news is that most guys do value more than just superficial qualities. Deep down, most guys want to find love, and will only seriously date a girl with a compatible personality. Any guy open to a long-term relationship knows that being able to actually enjoy your girlfriend’s company is just as important as – if not more important than – being physically attracted to her in the first place.
Of course, there are always exceptions. Giving in to his most primitive desires, sometimes a guy might just want to hook up with someone he finds unbearably good-looking. Generally speaking, the more immature and/or inexperienced a guy is, the more he’ll want to get it on with hot babes merely for the sake of getting it on with hot babes. Conversely, the more mature and experienced a guy becomes, the more he’ll tend to value a woman’s disposition, sense of humor, and intelligence.
Just keep this in mind as a final takeaway: no matter what life stage he may be in, any guy who can’t value you as an entire package isn’t worth dating in the first place.
