People Explain Which 'Strange' Traits They Find Attractive

There's something about a skinny dude who doesn't look like he ever sleeps, that tousled I don't care about anything look, that attracts me each time. Don't ask me why, I don't get it. I might have spent too much time watching Trainspotting when I was younger, which probably says a lot about me.

After Redditor radicalheadphone asked the online community, "What strange trait is very attractive to you?" people let it all out. Leave your judgment at home or otherwise jojn your kindred spirits!

"I love people..."

I love people that seem very silent but after talking to them they act like a whole different happy open person.


"My wife alwyas has..."

My wife always has a very serious and focused expression when doing little activities like baking or crocheting. She looks so adorable.


"Don't know why..."

Ponytails. Don't know why but they just do it for me. And it's not a slight attraction either it could take a 5/10 girl to a solid 8 all because of the hair. Drives me crazy.


"My heart melts..."

My heart melts when I see a big guy with a giant smile and a warm heart, that you can hug like a big teddy bear.


"I don't care about the person's skin color..."

Freckles, little freckles on the nose and cheeks, I don't care about the person's skin color or ethnicity, I find them adorable and special on anyone or a small scar (something that reminds me of them as soon as I think about it).


"True listening."

True listening. Lots of people "listen," but you can definitely tell when the person is fully interested in what you're saying, digesting the information, on the edge of their seat.


"I don't know why..."

Having two different eye colors (like one eye is one color and the other eye is a completely different color). I don't know why but I've always found that attractive.


"When I see a woman..."

A messy apartment. Too many people aren't happy unless everything is clean and organized, and satisfying them takes a lot of energy. When I see a woman who is ok having a decent amount of entropy in her environment, I take that as a very good sign.


"Throw in some odd lip movement..."

Lisps. Throw in some odd lip movement and I'm done.

Sara Rue, Sarah Paulson, Reese Witherspoon and Joan Cusack are some examples.


"I kinda have a crush..."

I kinda have a crush on one of my good friends and he's an avid bird lover. One day (pre-Covid) we went to the national museum to see a new digital art exhibit on the nature of pre- colonial Singapore, based on the hand drawn illustrations of one of our founders.

So here we are enjoying this art installation with beautiful animation and sound effects, and suddenly he starts quietly (but noticeable enough for me to hear) vocalising the Asian Koel bird mating call - which in my country is a notoriously annoying bird noise that has kinda become a local meme. And I'm just rolling my eyes and going "What an idiot" in my head. But I fell hard for that them right there. There was something just so delightful and attractive in being silly and having a sense of humour.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
