    People Are Sharing The "Conventionally Unattractive" Traits That They Find Hot As Heck, And It's A Real Self-Esteem Booster

    Big schnozzes, unite!

    Before we get into this post, let's establish something: ALL BODIES ARE BEAUTIFUL, DAMMIT.


    Alright, now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's take a look at this extremely sweet Reddit thread started by u/ShittyAtTalking. They asked users to share the "conventionally unattractive" traits that they actually find attractive, and the responses gave me hope for the future of body positivity. Here's what 15 people had to say:

    1. "Laugh lines around eyes. I know wrinkles aren’t supposed to be attractive, but I find them so endearing."

    2. "Dark eye circles/bags. I find them downright sexy. I’ve talked to other guys, and the majority seem to agree with me. I’m convinced the 'unattractive' trope is just a marketing campaign by makeup companies to sell more product."


    3. "I’m a sucker for a girl with a big nose."


    4. "Goofy grown men who still have voices that crack sometimes."


    5. "Suspenders on men. I don't know why, but if I see a dude with a button-up shirt and suspenders, I find them super cute."

    6. "Scars."


    7. "A slight overbite — it gives you the cutest smile."


    8. "Women who are heavier/older/taller/stronger, etc. Anything that makes me perceive them as dominant over me in some way."


    9. "Soft tummies."

    10. "Girls with body hair (legs, armpits, bellies) — including big, thick, dark eyebrows, and even cute unibrows."


    11. "Salt-and-pepper kings. Already attractive, but graying a little prematurely? Nice."


    12. "Stretch marks make me weak sometimes."


    13. "Glasses."

    14. "Ears that stick through their hair."


    15. And finally, "A bit of acne!"
