Dating app Happn and luxury beauty box company GLOSSYBOX surveyed more than 6,500 men and women about what they find most and least attractive in a potential partner, and found that things like humor, confidence, and intelligence are the most sought-after qualities in a significant other.
"Having a sense of humor is hands-down the number one sexiest feature in a potential partner according to our respondents," Happn and GLOSSYBOX said in a press release. "Self-confidence and intelligence are also among the hottest attributes in a prospective love match. The least attractive? Shy and sensitive types were among the least voted for traits for both men and women."
The survey found that in heterosexual relationships, 80 percent of women think a guy should make the first move, while guys were split 50/50 about who should take the reins when it comes to starting a conversation. Either way, someone's got to break the ice, so don't be afraid to send a funny first message to get the ball rolling — after all, taking the initiative shows confidence, which is *the* most attractive trait, according to 16 percent of both men and women.
