Lloyd, 19: Her body is something that would be attractive to me. That means she works out a lot, and doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs, even if her friends are doing them.
Kevin, 22: I’m attracted to girls who are down-to-earth and simple. Rude girls are ridiculous! if a girl I like acts mean and snobby to everyone, why should I be treated any different?
Adam, 18: Initially a good-looking girl catches my eye. but if she doesn’t have a good personality then forget it.
Michael, 20: A good personality is more important to me than what a girl looks like because I want to be able to relax and have fun with her, like I would with my friends or my family.
