Look, we won’t lie – looks always matter, but there’s a lot more to a woman that can drive a man crazy. Here’s a list of qualities that men say they find attractive in women:

1. Confidence: Men love being with a woman who is sure of herself. There’s nothing sexier than a woman who can stand up for herself, and who is comfortable with who she is rather than one that constantly seeks reassurance.

2. A Sense of Humor: While most women look for a guy who can make them laugh, its no different on the other side. A woman who’s funny, lighthearted, and doesn’t get upset when a man playfully teases her, is something every man hopes for.

3. Intelligence: Men do look past your beauty and looks. It is a huge turn-on for men when a woman is being opinionated, smart, and witty. Having a partner with whom they can have real conversations, rather than someone who thinks it’s cute to act like a bimbo is what most men look for.

4. Not Being Materialistic: Every woman wants a man who pampers her and makes her feel special, and men love doing it. But he’d rather be with a woman who doesn’t expect him to treat her like a diva all the time than one who wants him only for his paycheck or lavish gestures.

5. Playfulness: There’s nothing like a little bit of childish playfulness. Men find it really hot when a woman can switch from being mature to a not-so-uptight playful mood relatively easily.

6. Sensuality: This is another quality men absolutely love about women-the fact that they can look their absolute worst and still be sexy. Sensuality isn’t hard to pull off – it’s the air of sexy confidence that drives men crazy!

7. Independence: A woman who constantly clings on to a man like there’s no tomorrow is every man’s nightmare. But being with a women who’s driven and knows where she is headed, lets him have his own space when he needs it is a big turn-on for men.

8. Supportive: Knowing that his partner has his back is a big emotional boost for  a man. A little bit of encouragement and belief will make him want you for a long time to come.

10 Reasons to Stop Working So Hard

It’s time to add up all the ways in which working ridiculous hours hurts you and the people around you–and put a stop to the madness.

1. Quantity kills quality.

You want to be excellent at what you do. But the more tasks you take on, the smaller your chance of doing an excellent job at any of them. Cutting as many items off your task list as you can ups the odds that you’ll do a killer job on the things that matter most.

2. Sleep matters.

“The way to a more productive, more inspired, more joyful life is getting enough sleep,” Arianna Huffington said in a 2011 TED talk. She would know. She fainted from exhaustion and broke her cheekbone and is now something of a sleep evangelist. “I was recently having dinner with a guy who bragged that he’d gotten only four hours’ sleep the night before,” she continued. She considered retorting: “If you had gotten five, this dinner would have been a lot more interesting.”

3. You suck when it counts.

I can tell you from experience that going into a meeting tired and distracted means you will suck in that meeting. You’ll be bad at generating new ideas, finding creative solutions to problems, and worst of all you’ll suck at listening attentively to the people around you. That disrespects them and wastes their time as well as yours.

4. Your mood is a buzzkill.

The kind of irritability and impatience that goes with being overworked and behind schedule will cast a black cloud over the people around you both at work and at home. If you’re an employee, it will damage your career. If you’re a small business owner, it will harm your business.

5. Your judgment is impaired.

The research is conclusive: sleep deprivation impairs decision-making. As a leader, poor judgment is something you can’t afford. Crossing some tasks off your to-do list, handing them to someone else, or finishing some things late is well worth it if it means you bring your full concentration and intelligence to the tough decisions your job requires.

6. You’re setting a bad example.

The work schedule and tone you set for yourself will likely be mirrored by the smartest and most ambitious of your employees. What kind of leaders and bosses do you want them to be? Do you want the benefit of their brightest ideas and best judgment? Then don’t create an environment where everyone vies to see how many hours they can work without falling over.

7. There will always be more work.

If you run your own business, there’s always a new project to start, a new customer to pursue, or a new technology to try out. You’ll never be out of new work to do. And if you work for someone else, getting a lot done will lead to being given more tasks. That can be a good thing, but only if you have the time and energy to do them with excellence.

8. You’re hurting your relationships.

Somewhere along the way my husband sat me down and insisted that I make some time to talk with him every day. I’m blessed not only with a strong marriage but an unusually outspoken spouse. There may be people in your life feeling as shut out as he was who haven’t come out and said so. Don’t wait until it’s too late.

9. You’re screwing up your health.

Did Mita Diran know she was risking her life by working so hard? It seems clear from her tweets that she didn’t, and if she had, she’d have made a different choice. I’m sure you’re smart enough not to work 30 hours straight, but do you let your work schedule interfere with things like healthy eating and regular exercise, not to mention sleep? If so, then it’s possible you’re shortening your life by overwork. Is it worth it?

10. Most of the work is less important than you think.

A few years ago, hospice worker Bronnie Ware famously published the top five regrets she heard from her dying patients. Those who’d had careers all regretted the number of hours they spent at work. But many of her patients also spoke of dreams they wished they’d fulfilled.

Put those two items together and there’s a lesson: If something will help you fulfill a lifelong dream, it’s worth spending long hours. If not, then it isn’t. So ask yourself: In 10 years, will I care about this? If the answer is no, then it’s probably time to quit and go get some rest.
