Poll: Strange charms of the opposite sex



goo Ranking recently asked what aspects of the opposite sex that others might find a little odd did people find alluring, for both men looking at women and women looking at men.

Demographics


Between the 17th and 18th of January 2012 1,048 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.6% of the sample were female, 12.3% in their teens, 15.6% in their twenties, 27.9% in their thirties, 25.8% in their forties, 9.5% in their fifties, and 8.9% in their sixties. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

"1= He is a nerd in a particular field 100" <- Totally my taste.

"3= She’s a nerd in a particular field 51.7" <- Totally me.
atelierlune 28th-Mar-2012 12:09 am (UTC)
Same!
litost 27th-Mar-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
"He sweats like a pig" is the only one that surprises me.

There should be more nerds(and Nerd love) in life.

Smart people are always the most successful.

not all nerds are smart
bishieaddict 27th-Mar-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
lol. wow. they don't mind scatterbrains. cool. cuz that's what I am and I hate that part of myself.

since I'm a geek, I don't mind nerds as long as they're not more awkward than I am.

same here. it's uncomfortable and awkward lol
ohprecioustime 27th-Mar-2012 11:52 pm (UTC)
why would you find asexuality as an attractive trait unless you were also asexual

the eating a lot and jokes falling flat are cute



nova_usagi 28th-Mar-2012 02:47 am (UTC)
It`s 中性的 which means "androgynous" not "asexual"

emeraldxdew 27th-Mar-2012 11:56 pm (UTC)
LOL The guys seem more divided about their answers than the ladies.

And wait- since when was liking a guy because "he is tall" considered strange? 0_o
wayof_life 28th-Mar-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
Because Japanese are general short. They think the other being tall is somewhat a hindrance to the r/s somehow. They rather have a better view of the guy when talking lol

sparkleandniji 28th-Mar-2012 12:02 am (UTC)
tl;dr

Coming coz the pic op used is cute.
go_chan2011 28th-Mar-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
I find all these options odd, guess that you have to be Japanese to get these things?O_o LMAO!^_^
asweetsymphony 28th-Mar-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
He is asexual

...lmao.

He has strong body odour

Ew. No!

He is cold towards me

Reason to break up tbh.
nova_usagi 28th-Mar-2012 02:50 am (UTC)
中性的 means "adrogynous" not "asexual"

It`s probably in reference to looks, being a pretty boy instead of a macho manly man.
traviell 28th-Mar-2012 12:14 am (UTC)
Being tall is a strange charm? oO
scubajr 28th-Mar-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
"She is scatterbrained"
Really?
nami 28th-Mar-2012 06:17 pm (UTC)
If they think that, all the female anime characters now suddenly make sense XD

Although I would think that's rather cute too... Unless it's scatterbrained to the point of being ultra annoying of course.
loverboy 28th-Mar-2012 12:27 am (UTC)
Don't care about the poll but that picture is super cute.
liime_arix 28th-Mar-2012 12:44 am (UTC)
I tried to find interesting pictures =3
yumett 28th-Mar-2012 12:46 am (UTC)
... i actually just don't get the n°3 "He is tall".
since when is it that strange or odd that a girl is attracted to a tall guy ?
kame_94 28th-Mar-2012 12:53 am (UTC)
That first pic is too adorable.
The results are interesting and I agree with quite a lot of them
haruno21 28th-Mar-2012 01:07 am (UTC)
He gets embarrassed exceptionally easily
I love that one X3 it´s super cute

He is a nerd in a particular field
I dont think that´s strange AT ALL. We all like a person who knows lot about sth interesting
sundaetea 28th-Mar-2012 01:15 am (UTC)
"He is asexual..."
whut?

Although the "He is a nerd in a particular field" is cute as well as the "He gets embarrassed exceptionally easily."


nova_usagi 28th-Mar-2012 02:43 am (UTC)
中世的 is "androgynous" not "asexual"

Here it`s probably being used to refer to guys who aren`t very masculine and are kind of pretty boys.

pinkydbzfan 28th-Mar-2012 01:22 am (UTC)
Women in japan like asexual men.. o.O

i really like a lot of these, but "she's a scatter brain" =.= really? lol i guess...
echowillow 28th-Mar-2012 01:43 am (UTC)
This liking scatterbrain girls apply to most asian men really (of course there are exceptions). You meet some of the most foolish girls and they have guys falling for them. And I have responsible, smart friends who are all single. My brother tells me that many of his guy friends have said they don't want girls who are too smart. It's a men thing, wanting to feel like they can protect. If the girl is a scatterbrain, it feels like she needs protection. I've been told a lot that its more difficult to get a guy being a medical student and female XD
emeraldxdew 29th-Mar-2012 03:20 am (UTC)
*sigh* Sad, but true. Ah, being an Asian girl is tough. Being a smart, professional Asian girl is impossibru!
nice_vibe 28th-Mar-2012 01:49 am (UTC)
I'm not surprised these guys like scatterbrained women tbh
