Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I think it's fascinating that people's opinions and preferences about physical attractiveness are so varied! What are some physical attributes that you personally find attractive?

-People are beautiful

A:

Dear person,

For some reason, I thought I'd have a lot of time to come up with a good answer to this question, which people in real life have been trying to get me to answer for several years. Somehow I didn't remember that its due date would coincide with moving into my new apartment in preparation for my new job. So it's partly my fault that this went overtime, and I apologize.

I've had a really hard time in the past describing what makes someone physically attractive to me. However, after lots and lots of swiping on Mutual and thinking about what it is that I like or don't like about each girl I see there, I have a few general ideas.

First of all, a pretty face is the most important feature to me. I like round and heart-shaped faces, straight teeth, and eyebrows that look like they're made of hair.

As far as body shape goes, I think I prefer slim over curvy. In other words, I don't relate well with Captain Holt's heterosexual alter ego.

The Entomophagist, answering the question that was asked, regardless of how shallow the answer seems.

A:

Dear People,

There aren't very many specific physical attributes that I can name, because in my experience if I'm attracted to a man's personality, I'll be attracted to him physically as well.

However, I'm a sucker for a good pair of muscular arms.

Love,

Luciana

A:

Dear you,

When I was young and inexperienced, I liked to say I'd only fall for tall, lanky men who are slightly muscular and have a mischievous smile. But when it really comes down to it, I'm a sucker for witty guys. Doesn't matter what they look like, if they're nice and make me laugh I'll fall for 'em. Thankfully, that describes minnow to a tee, which is probably why I like him so much.

Dear friend,

As far as physical traits go, I don't think I have a type but notice that I tend to develop feelings for people that are a) compassionate and b) extroverted. The extroversion thing is probably because I'm more of a listener than a talker and admire people who seem to have confidence in themselves. The compassion thing, I think, is because it's a trait I value and because I like to feel cared for in romantic relationships.

Dear Yes They Are,

Obviously there are many, many other qualities that would actually make me attracted to people, but as far as solely physical attributes go, I really like it when the guy is taller than me and has good wrists.
