We all have different opinions about dating, marriage, and even our sex lives, but one thing we can all agree on is that we should have a good time.

And some people are not shy about sharing what makes them happy.

Redditor mini-mum-wage asked:

"What is an unconventional thing you find sexy?"

Just Hands

"Hands, it’s so f**king stupid, I know, but I swear to god, when I see large and veiny (not like grandpa veiny but still) hands, I’m giggling and swinging my feet, twirling my hair, and everyone around is absolutely hornswoggled."


Like the Song

"I like a girl in a short skirt and a looooooong jacket."

- Horsetoots

A Preview

"When hubby reaches for something above his head and his shirt rises just enough that his belly idea why but damn, gets the lady bits all worked up."

- No_touchie_ma_boobs


​"The little curly wispy hair at the base of a girl's hairline."

"No idea why."

- stumpdawg

It Hits Different

"I think it is hot if a middle-aged woman wears a business suit and puts her hands on her hips and tells me she is disappointed with me."

- inkseep1

A Proper Sailor

"Ability to cuss effectively and within context."

- Adventurous-Flow4228

Symmetry Who?

"I find an asymmetrical smile very cute. There’s a YouTube channel Charismatic Voice and she is a good example of what I mean as she often smiles higher on one side. It doesn’t seem super common but I’ve noticed it as a trait of a few people."

- Eternal-Bagel

Passionate Chats

"I love when they get lost in their thoughts and talk about what interests them. Eventually, they come back to reality and apologize for rambling but I tell them to continue."

"You know they've been hurt before but they're with me now, and I love the passion."

- YaFairy

Occasional Exposure

"When the nape of the neck is exposed on someone who typically has their hair down… Good God."

- ceaseless-watcher

Knowledge is Sexy

"I like a girl I can learn from, even if she's not like directly teaching me but I can still learn something from watching her."

- SleepySleeprsn

Nervousness is Interesting

"When a guy is nervous when he's talking to me and his voice quivers."

- agentscully222


"I seem to be in a small minority of people in preferring partners my own height. I think there's something really sexy about seeing literally eye to eye."

- Emu_on_the_Loose


"When men blush. Goodbye, panties."

- Think_Doughnut628

Lines Tell a Story

"Laugh lines on a guy’s face. My boyfriend has the most beautiful perfect little creases on an otherwise smooth face. it’s so enchanting because he’s otherwise a very stoic person."

- ReasonablePudding96

What's on the Face Counts

"Big or unique noses. It's something I've always loved about other people, and in recent years, it's something I've come to love about myself."

- strawberryyogurt_

This was a fun reminder that everyone has their own preferences, and something that may not work for someone will make someone else very, very happy.

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
