People magazine will reveal their Sexiest Man Alive this week – who will it be? Although People has their own system for selecting the reigning sexy man, we wanted to know, what do YOU think makes a man sexy? We asked real women, what are the things that make you really think a man is sexy? Quite a few of the answers were physical, but still – you all appear to have your values in line – you do weigh kindness as more important than abs.

1. Confidence: The answer that occurred overwhelmingly more than anything else was confidence. You all noted that a man who is sure of himself is the thing that makes him most sexy. “When his guy friends are all doing one thing, but he says he is going to do another thing, THAT is hot,” Jane from Los Angeles says. “And it’s even hotter if they then all go along with it!”

Ellie from Houston echoed Jane’s statement. “When a guy says, ‘This is my girlfriend’ proudly and doesn’t care what his buddies say, that is sexy!”

2. Kindness: Who says nice guys finish last?! You all thought that a man who shows kindness is sexy!

There are three more! Read on…

    These are all great, but intelligence is at the top of my list, along with kindness.

  2. Fashionista says:

    A man is sexy if he’s confident, passionate about what he does, and is a gentleman.

  3. mannequin says:

    And he wears a vest well.

    Confidence is a good one. Not over-confidence of course. Guys who act like God’s gift can take a hike.
    As for my own list….
    I was a music major & in love with all things creative, whether it’s performing or visual arts, so some involvement in that area is a great, as it gives us something in common. Intelligence is helpful. I can’t tell you how many otherwise attractive men have lost my attention 5 minutes into the conversation. As much as I love the Julie Brown song, I just don’t really “like ‘em big & stupid.”
    Sense of humor is a huge turn on for me! When it comes to celebrity crushes, comedians are consistently at the top of my list. Conan O’Brien, Lewis Black, Orlando Jones…the list goes on! A man who can make me laugh can come over any time.

    It also helps if he looks good in Victorian clothing. hehe

    Intelligence, kindness/compassion, great sense of humor, gentlemanly qualities, excellent hygiene, great smile and the capacity to love deeply.
    Although I haven’t had a man in many years (I’m dying from cancer), I have taught my 28 year old son to have all of these qualities. P.S. All the girls are NUTS about him – he does have great abs and muscular arms from working out – just sayin’….

    Confidence definently! So many insecure men out there and its sooo hard to deal with!

  7. fatchic says:

    I like them tall, smart, and inclined to appreciate feminism. I’ll take the last two over the first one any day.

  8. Athirson says:

    My BS detector went off when you tried to rebut the axiom that Nice Guys Finish Last. Because they do. You ladies like the assholes, which is why you always end up with them. It isn’t bad karma, bad astrology, or any of the other nonsense you make up to try and rationalize it.

  9. Fancylingeriestore says:

    Kindness is #1.

  10. johnannarufus says:

    i think his humor and smarts. i think theres alot that make a man sexy. i think my man is just right down sexy ass as hell. just dont get a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig head men. lol

  11. singingnymph says:

    Kindness is a great thing & a kind, good man IS different from a “nice guy.” This has been discussed in depth on other sites.
    It’s not that women like assholes. After all, we could counter that guys only like bitches; I’ve seen THAT time & time again, but it doesn’t make it universally true. So I don’t go around spouting it like the pathetic spineless boys who can’t get a date with a real woman & chalk it up to how we only want an asshole.

    Looks are great but if a guy is dumber than a box of rocks that’s a deal breaker! Being dumb also means he will never earn a decent living and you will have to do all his thinking and decision making for him. NOT COOL! And please! No Momma’s boys!

  13. cookiemonsta803756 says:

    I’d have to say Humor and Charisma. If he can make my sides split and then wipe away my tears from laughter or any other reason, i probably love him. Like my Boyfriend now. ;)

  14. ambercontreras23 says:

    a man is sexy when he’s intelligent, humble, kind, and hardworking. i love when a man has a nice smile too, makes me melt lol

  15. mysumac says:

    Yes, as said before Intelligence is a biggie! Big and smart. Also, abs are good but I don’t even consider a man if he isn’t tall with broad shoulders.

  16. Eliane says:

    I think a well mannered man is sexy!

  17. yvonramb40 says:

    the sexiest thing is a hot guy with
    Humility.It’s nice to have a mix of strength
    and sensitivity.Humility is a must though;nothing is more aggravating than a guy who’s arrogant and thinks he’s God’s gift!!!
