I’m going to tell you about the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen. Although I don’t like to admit it, there is a certain phenotype (specific type) of men that I always find attractive. That would be a dark-skinned, dark-haired man, maybe Latino or Mediterranean. There is something about this look that is so exotic to me, as a fair-skinned, light haired freckly (with freckles) woman.
I’ll never forget this man I saw during my trip in Costa Rica once. As I was walking along the street one day, I caught a glimpse (saw) of his gorgeous face behind the bar of a small, local restaurant and bar. After this, I couldn’t get him off my mind. The next day, I decided to go in that bar with some friends of mine to see if I could get to know him more. Unfortunately, it turned out that he was already taken. However, he was quite friendly so we still chatted for a bit.
I’ll never forget the dimensions of his face. He had dark brown eyes with long, dark eyelashes paired with a pearly white smile. Everything was perfectly symmetrical (even) on his face. Furthermore, he has a chiseled (defined) jaw line which is quite manly and attractive to me. He had short black hair which fell perfectly on his face with a slight swoop (falling across his face). I’m a pretty tall woman, standing at about 1.68, but I noticed that he was significantly taller than me, perhaps about 1.85, which is uncommon for his country. As I’m not into super buff (super muscular) men, I liked his slightly muscular, lean build.
Although he was gorgeous, what stood out (caught my attention) to me most was his smile. He had a friendly demeanor (way of being), which tends to attract me above all. It seems that we always tend to want what we don’t have, so I really enjoyed how different looking he was from me, as I was used to seeing blonde-haired, blue eyed guys in my own country.

Sample Answer 2
Last year, when I went on a vacation with my gang of friends to Bali, we met Raghav, who was also a tourist like us. He is a good combination of looks and personality.
After a year of planning and two years of a long pandemic, we finally decided to visit Bali to celebrate the New Year. After two days of roaming around in the heavenly place, we decided to explore Penida Island. Apart from packing lunch to have a picnic, we decided to soak in the sun, have a swim in the cool waters and probably play games. As we were lying on the beach, we saw a group of boys approaching us, one of them was Raghav as we later came to know. He had come there with his cousins and a few friends.
He was over six feet tall with a lean body. As he was from Kashmir, he had the typical milky white complexion, which had a healthy tan, all thanks to the Bali sun. He had a chiselled face with long black lashes covering his golden brown eyes. His short haircut suited him perfectly.
Besides his charming looks, I was most impressed by his down-to-earth personality. I have seen people nowadays who are very proud of their good looks and forget their manners as a result. But it was not so with Raghav. He was soft-spoken, helpful and, most importantly, knew how to respect everyone, especially women and elders. As we chatted animatedly, we found out we were staying in the same area and fortunately, our trip synced wonderfully. We are still in contact with each other and have now become good friends.
