What Do High School Girls Look for in Guys?
What do high school girls look for in guys? A quick query in a popular search engine reveals messed up words of so-called wisdom. Someone even posted "Car, money, 6 inches of pain, and lots of weed" Let's put such nonsensical advice aside and take a practical peak into the psyche of a high school girl and what guys can do to attract and impress her.
Is he popular?
Popularity is definitely one of the first things that high school girls look for in guys. When a guy is popular among his peers it speaks volumes of his personality. It also shows that he has a good following of friends who like to be with him all the time. Being popular is definitely a top asset to have for a guy in high school.
Is he hot?
High school is all about having fun and without doubt, a guy with good looks will seldom go unnoticed. Of course there are many other factors that determine whether girls like him or not, but being attractive surely helps. Excuse Princesswithapen for the loose reference, but a 'Hot Guy in high school' will typically have a decent height, athletic body and could very well be a slightly hot blooded.
Does he have a special talent?
Guys with a special talent become instantly popular and likeable, even if they may score low in the other departments. For example if a guy can play the guitar and woo an audience with his melodious voice, girls will definitely drool. If a guy can play the violin like a superstar, he will definitely have a following of girls who are into music. Special talent is always hard to find and is bound to draw a following. Think of the guys from One Direction. You get the point, don't you?
Is he a wimp?
Any woman expects her man to stand up for his beliefs and for her too. While that may not literally translate to how a high school guy/girl may think, the fundamental remains the same. Mind you, this is not the same as the uber popular yet false notions that girls like tough guys or girls don't like skinny guys. That's wrong. This simply means that girls are attracted to guys who believe in themselves and display confidence.
Is he dependable?
Dependable in this context is quite different than the mature definition of dependable. From a high school girl's perspective, being dependable is probably the guy's ability to help her out in times of need, back her up in an argument, speak to her on the phone whenever she wants and hang out with her when she's bored. He is the guy who can be there, no matter what. Mr. Dependable is always in demand and dependability is a trait that even mature women like their man to have.
Do other girls in the class find him attractive?
Have you heard the saying 'Owner's pride, neighbor's envy'? If you haven't, you better know it now because psychologically it is an immense ego boost for anyone, let alone a high school girl, to have something that others want too. When girls gossip about how attractive a guy is, it makes him craved for. When other girls talk about wishing to date him, it makes him even more likeable.
Does everyone hate him for a particular reason?
No girl wants to be in the company of someone who is loathed by everyone. Whether it is a peculiar habit or an obnoxious personality, guys who have managed to generate hateful vengeance against themselves may land up in a girl's bad books. One of the things that high school girls look for in guys is popularity, as we talked about earlier. This is the exact opposite of that.
How will he be in bed?
Note the use of the word HOW WILL HE BE in bed as opposed to IS HE GOOD in bed. Why? The reason is quite simple. Whether everyone accepts it or not, sexual discovery of one's own and the opposite sex's body and needs is virtually never-ending. Guys and girls find themselves in an ever-evolving journey when it comes to sexuality which makes it impractical to set a benchmark for a guy so soon in life. It may even be his/her first sexual encounter. If gossip has led everyone to believe that a guy is fun to be with in bed, well, that's a plus. On the contrary, if popular rumor in high school says otherwise, girls may have a preconceived negative notion about him.
Is he fun to hang out with and does he have the means to have fun?
Forget high school girls, every woman wants to have a little fun every now and then, doesn't she? So, what do high school girls look for in guys from a fun perspective? Every girl will have a different perspective of fun, but if a guy can do things that can keep her entertained and help her be the diva she wants, that's generally good enough. Does he get invited to the cool parties? Does he have a car he can drive me around in? Can he take me out for dates? Can he crack a joke or two? Does he have a fun personality or does he take things too seriously? Does he have the money to take me out every now and then? These are some of the things that may decide whether a girl likes a guy or not. While all this may be labeled as 'chivalry' in mature lingo, it has nearly the same psychological effect. After all, keeping a girl happy has never gone out of vogue, has it?
Is he in the high school team?
Stars of the high school team, whether it is basketball, baseball or football, always catch a girl's eye. Why? Simply because team sports are all about competition and achievement. If a guy can knock over 5 other guys and score a touchdown at the other end of a field, he can definitely hold up on his own in any situation. Get it?
