What women want? It may be very difficult to predict,but a new study says that females prefer a geek with facial stubble.

According to the study,which is based on a survey of 2,500 British females,a man with facial stubble and a geeky personality are women’s biggest secret turn-ons.

Despite complaining that it looks unkempt and feels rough to touch,the unshaven look on a man is actually a turn-on for 41 per cent of women. A slightly geeky personality came second,proving that women really do like a guy who knows their stuff when it comes to technology.

A hairy chest was voted third,followed by a man who loves to read or cries at a soppy film. Other secret turn-ons to feature in the top ten include grey hair,glasses and being a passionate supporter of a sports team.

But almost one in five would never admit what they really find attractive in a man to other people.

A spokesman for http://www.onepoll.com,which carried out the survey,was quoted by the ‘Daily Mail’ as saying,”Publically,girls will claim they want a muscly guy,who is hair free and manly enough not to show his emotional side. But these results prove that they secretly want something different.

“It seems women really do like a guy who is able to show a softer side,or who is carrying a little bit of extra weight. I’m sure it’s a relief to men all over the country to find out that women aren’t looking for that perfect guy.”

The survey has also revealed that 91 per cent would actually prefer a guy who had a few flaws over someone who is perfect. And more than half would rather a guy who was soft and cuddly instead of toned and muscly.

Almost two thirds would prefer to be with a naturally hairy man,while 56 per cent like a guy with a little bit of stubble over someone who is clean shaven or has a full beard.

Women also prefer a guy who doesn’t spend too much time on his appearance,with 63 per cent saying they would like a man who got ready quickly rather than fussing over what he looked like.

Fifty-eight per cent of women even want a guy who doesn’t care what he eats over someone who is watching his weight and counting calories,the survey revealed.
