Yes, ladies … black men are like other men in that we are simple creatures. We see with the eyes and are impacted by your physical being first. You were created in such a way as to be attractive to us.

But once we get past the initial physical attraction, there are attributes and intangibles that we cannot see with the naked eye — characteristics which are far more important — that help to create those lasting emotional bonds. Intelligent men discern these things in you and make it a priority to honor and protect it.

Here are the 10 things that smart black men love about and find attractive in women outside of your physical composition.
