Do girls like guys with glasses? Honestly, there’s just something about men rocking a pair of glasses! Guys with glasses look quirky, intelligent, and just the right amount of nerdy that is just so unimposing and endearing. Whether or not it’s because of a problem with their sight *which is most often the case*, guys with glasses are simply not afraid to be themselves—nearsighted and all.

They are not interested in the opinions of people around them, and they just go about their bespectacled life shrugging off the most common stereotypes they’ve all probably heard anyway.

In fact, guys with glasses are walking contradictions. They surprise you in more ways than you can imagine. People tend to underestimate these four-eyed guys, but after spending time with them come away pleasantly surprised by their charm, warmth, and character.

It’s like going on a date with a shy gentleman and getting under the sheets with a genuine stud. Guys with glasses will make you laugh at their wit and take you on an intellectual journey. They’ll also listen to what you have to say and are always eager to learn new things, especially when they’re about you.

Dating guys with glasses might surprise you

So whether guys with glasses are as mysterious and brooding as Mr. Grey, as geeky and boyish as Clark Kent, or as intellectual and artistic as John Lennon, here are the top reasons why we think they’re smoking hot!

1. They will teach you a thing or two

Guys with glasses have something they know that you don’t—or at least they look like it. To prove this point, there was actually a study where people who wear glasses were considered to be 14 IQ points more intelligent than those who don’t wear a pair.

2. They are the type you’d bring home to meet your parents

Whether you think it’s an unfair stereotype or not, men who wear glasses are considered to be nicer than those who don’t.

Maybe it’s because of the way movies and television portray guys with glasses as nerdy, tame, and wholesome. But let’s face it: you know your parents would rather have you bring home Leonard Hofstadter than Barney Stinson, right? [Read: Meeting a girl’s parents – 21 dos and don’ts a guy needs to remember]

3. Their glasses tell you lots about their personality

Thanks to glasses, you can see into the quirks and personalities of guys. From wayfarers, gold-rimmed, plastic, to round frames, you can easily know what to expect from a guy by their choice of glasses. For example, hipster-types often wear classic wayfarers, and serious geeks wear Benjamin Franklin’s, while those who wear plastic frames are often fun and carefree.

4. Their eyes become much more mysterious

There’s something about a man behind a pair of eyeglasses that renders him a bit more mysterious than the next guy. This is probably because if eyes are the windows to the soul, glasses are the curtains *well, it’s not the best analogy, but you get the drift*.

Plus, you can find yourself pleasantly surprised, and aroused, when you remove the glasses and find a pair of sexy eyes behind the bifocals.

5. The glasses add sexual tension and are great for teasing

Come on—glasses are to men what hair is to women. You can use both to flirt. You can take them off, put the temples between your teeth, lower them to your nose, push them up closer to your eyes, push them up on your head. Guys with glasses can take home a girl with just this one secret weapon. [Read: Is he flirting with you? 12 signs he just can’t hide]

6. The squint

Of course. There’s nothing sexier than a guy who squints after taking off his glasses. There’s just something about that mannerism only guys with glasses can do. And when they are not wearing their glasses, the weird, squishy-eyed look they give you is also endearing.

7. They look smart and sexy at the same time

Having the right pair of glasses on a guy, the type that frames their face perfectly makes them look well put-together and smart. Put him in the middle of a crowd of glassless guys and he will stand out looking so hot you’d want to take off those glasses and ruffle his hair before giving him a French kiss. At the same time, guys with glasses look so smart it feels like they’d give you a lesson on French history. [Attracted to intelligence? 10 clues you might be sapiosexual]

8. They fulfil your girly fantasies

The whole Clark Kent/Christian Grey/mature guy/hot teacher/bookish nerd fantasy every girl has is fulfilled by a cute guy in glasses. Immediately, you can just imagine taking off those glasses and looking deep into those eyes before planting them a frenzied kiss.

9. Contact lenses are so passé

The 90s called and it wants its contact lenses back. Yes, it’s that unfashionable. Especially for men. Can you imagine making out with your guy when he says, “Just a sec,” and he yanks each eye wide open, rolls his eyeballs back, and then blinks like a wide-eyed deer caught in the headlights? Not so hot, right?

10. You look hotter

So thanks to their not-so-good eyesight, they can’t see a thing without their glasses. Because of this, you might actually look hotter to him than you really are. Talk about instant auto-tuning, but for your face and body.

Bonus: their glasses also make for great conversation starters. You can say things like, “Hey, nice glasses!” or something subtler like “Hey, your glasses are all fogged up.” The second option is great for making the guy remove his glasses. [Read: Drawing a blank?

11. You assume he has goals

Guys with glasses look smarter but you also assume that this is a guy that has goals for the future. He knows what he wants and he’s going to go after them, but in that gentle, unassuming way he all love. Not only is that pretty adorable, but it also taps into that strong masculine energy that makes us weak at the knees!

12. Do glasses equal passion?

For some, guys with glasses look like pretty passionate types. Maybe it’s the smart brooding, or the fact that he knows what he wants from life, but you assume this is a guy who is passionate in all parts of his life. That could also mean that he’s pretty passionate in bed too – bonus! [Read: Passionate sex – 11 realistic ways to have it!]

13. Glasses say “mature”

Whilst it’s totally possible to meet guys with glasses who are far from mature, the very fact that they’re wearing spectacles makes you think that this is a mature guy who has his head screwed on the right way. That means he’ll look after you, he’s dependable, and he’s intelligent. Swoon!

14. Guys with glasses look more confident

Whether he’s wearing glasses because he needs them or not, the fact he has them on his face means that he’s confident and strong. Guys who need glasses for vision reasons probably don’t actually want to wear them but they know that unless they do, their eyesight will suffer. That means he’s confident enough in his own skin to just go with it for the greater good. [Read: How to be more confident with 12 simple daily self-love habits]

15. You feel you can trust guys with glasses

Maybe you can, maybe you can’t, but for some reason, you automatically feel that you can trust this guy. The world’s greatest intellects, poets, and philosophers wore glasses, so when you see guys in glasses you feel like you’ve met someone dependable and trustworthy. There’s nothing in that not to like.

16. Guys with glasses aren’t playing games?

This is a debatable one, but do you think that if a guy is wearing glasses he’s mature enough to not play games and just say what he wants in a relationship? If the points above are true, then surely this is a guy who isn’t going to stamp on your heart for the hell of it. [Read: Playing games in a relationship: When it’s okay & when it harms you]

Whether it’s prescription or not, girls just love their guys with glasses. These guys give off this wholesome boy-next-door look ladies just dig. Who has time to sift through the jocks, hipsters, and rockers who seem to just morph into one another after a few drinks and some small talk anyway?
