It's more than just one trait. You can be sexy looking, but have a serious negative attitude or personality which negates your looks. You can be not that great looking but have great wit and intelligence and be considered very sexy.
Like others say, it's in the eye of the beholder. Everybody likes something different.
As a first impression, looks are what would be sexy before personality. I'm drawn first by eyes and smiles.
Honouring yourself enough to make an effort with your appearance. (Yes, I don't do that enough at all) Loving yourself and loving others. Loving yourself makes people notice you, loving others draws them to you. Easy!

It totally depends on the person. And I think our tastes change as we age and change ourselves.

I was running some errands last fall, going in and out of several different stores in a strip mall. As I was walking out of one store to put something in my car, a little boy (I'd guess about 4 or 5 yrs old) was walking across the parking lot with 2 ladies. He shouted "HEY, SEXY LADY" at the top of his lungs, looking right at me. The two women were so embarrassed (I honestly don't think they knew where he got that). But I knew and thought it was hilarious!
I think it depends on the person and what they think it means to them. I think that sexy means confidence....taking care of their body...liking them selves in their own skin. I also think having a loving heart is sexy..........

I feel sexy is being confident with who you are and comfortable in your skin.

Sexy is what you want it to be.
I like what Dan Savage of "Savage Love" and "It Gets Better" had to say to some of the folks experiencing problems on his TV show. If you're large, or small, white/black/Asian/etc, or a ginger, or bald, or whatever, there's someone out there that will be attracted to that and find it sexy.
All you have to do is troll the bowels of the internet and porn sites to see that there's an interest in just about anything. Not that I equate all that to "sexy", but there's a definite link in most cases.

I think it is more an attitude or the exuding of confidence than anything.
If my husband or boyfriend called me sexy (I have neither) I would be flattered. If a complete stranger or acquaintance called me sexy I do believe it would creep me out and I would find it inappropriate
sexy is definitely a state of mind being comfortable with yourself, confidence, self esteem, warmth, humor, and daring to share your true self with others.
I would love to hear someone say: "Hey there Sexy"...and mean it

What i find sexy another person may not. It is very subjective. When someone says to you, Hey Sexy, they may not mean it in the literal term. They may mean you look good because you lost weight, or you're wearing a tighter dress than you usually wear and they may even think you look bad but don't know what to say so they said, hey sexy. The term only means something to me when my partner says it to me because I know he means the literal term. When other people say it that I know, I usually take it that they like the way I look that day, maybe like my outfit and are just being warm and affectionate.
I'm using "you " in the generic form, not talking about the OP.

Sexy doesn't have a size limit nor does it have an age limit, it's not the way a person dresses it's confidence you have in yourself and it's not being full of yourself. I think its when your comfortable in your own skin it shows. It's ones personality at times, there are many skinny girls out there who know how to put on make up and can get in all the cute little clothing, but inside they are empty only a shell, sexy is when there's more then just a shell. It's beauty inside that projects out and many people find that sexy....

What is sexy is what you find sexy! Also, what your partner finds sexy, because it IS a two way street :D ;D

What is sexy? Is it the way you act, the way you look, the way you dress. Can sexy be big or small, old or young? I was just curious what others think, someone said Hey sexy to me the other day, I don't really know what was meant by it, should I be insulted or flattered?. Please let me know what you think? What is sexy?
