    What do you thinks best describes one handsome man? His features, his brains or both? Maybe something else?

    It's different for everybody.

    It's hard for me to describe but I know it when I see it. For me men start becoming handsome as they mature (>40 yo). Before that they are good looking. Good looking young men have the potential to become handsome with age if they take care of themselves. For lack of a better word, older men have a certain "patina," if you will, that younger men lack. Also, confidence. A man's handsomeness is boosted by his confidence.

    You're a good looking young man (in case you were wondering).

    when people say handsome, they're usually referring to facial features. other things can still make a guy attractive. i've found that big pecs, a big dick and phat butt can totally override handsomeness.

    As the saying goes, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder." What one finds attractive, others may find repulsive.

    Personality. 100% Fit, yeah, but the hottest thing a guy can have is a bright mind and sharp intellect. Smart and fun and quick

    Even an average looking guy who takes good care of himself, while making sure that he ain't sweatin' it appears to be handsome.

    A bit of being handsome has something to do with your genes. Big part of it has to do with your lifestyle. The BIGGEST part of being handsome, in my books that is, has to do with cool, 0-attitude.

    I like to think of being handsome as being someone who oozes masculinity as he interacts with the others.

    I know this, well, supposedly str8 guy who is all blond, cute, has had nothing but big problems with his GFs, and is desperate to become, well, sort of attractively handsome. A total no-go.

    If he kept his mouth shut forever? Possibly so...

    But the moment he starts talking, most people virtually turn around and walk away from him.

    He sees himself as the Greatest and the Best in everything. (Wow.) He owns a USD 6K watch. He wears a USD 200.00 jacket, etc., etc..

    The saddest part of his story is that he seems to be entirely unaware of the very negative reaction he causes, and keeps on permanently listing his materialistic and other achievements that are all either irrelevant, boring or of very little bearing whatsoever.

    He is actually NOT a bad dude at all, willing to help, smart in more ways than one, etc. Yet, all attempts to educate him on his attitude part have failed very miserably. Nope, not everyone has a chance of being handsome, if you will...

    I was talking to a guy at the bar, we were getting on ok and he was pretty good looking but then he decides to tell me that he used to have an award winning restaurant, his parents owned 38 race horses and he was a millionaire and at university training to be a Dr, total turn off, boring and boastful, money and materialism doesn't do anything for me at all, he was getting on ok with me until all that happened so I made an excuse and left, I much prefer the humble approach, thats attractive as well as looks, usually symmetrical face, don't mind about the body too much but at the end of the day its all about chemistry and sometimes there is no reason for wanting or liking someone, who I find attractive, someone else might not, the way a guy carries himself, confidence, a passionate nature, being at ease with himself and others, thats attractive. Not being a total slut and sleeping with anything with a pulse, that to me is a turn off.
    Intelligence.

    Handsomeness refers to look, physical features. Cute, tall, chiseled face, short clean cut hair, nice smile lip and a overall thin/toned body. I think of *pretty boys when guys say handsome dudes. Like Chris Pine or Chris Evans or Joseph Gordon Levitt, Harry shum Jr. icon_razz.gificon_smile.gif I Would not say handsomeness referring to a guy's personality. Lol, other great adjectives like Kind, Sweet, endearing, giving...etc describe that.

    I don't think I can easily define what makes a man handsome, but I know it when I see it.

    I define handsome as being good looking and respectable without being hot or sexy. Its the male equivalent of pretty.

    I think, first, and foremost, handsome is a sense of leadership,... a full name...a face... a handshake a smile...a love for self that isn't selfish but is not detrimental. Engaging conversation who an insight to humor. Fitness, wellness,...the ability to giggle and quietly lead by example.

    Nothing is a huger turnoff than a faceless closet case. A deal killer from the get go.

    Great people. Beautiful people. Brilliant people. Are generally so by design, brilliance, and work ethic.

    That discipline is super attractive. That confidence and quiet leadership is what the alpha male truly is.

    For me, handsomeness has changed. When I was younger it was more about classic looks. As I've aged, I find a guy handsome when he's masculine with a good attitude.

    I'll know it when I see it.

    Masculine, for sure, and nice eyes are the first thing I notice.

    On top of the physical, he has to be intelligent, kind, secure, sensitive, ethical, employed....

    I don't ask for much, do I?
