7 Sexy Things About Women That Men Should Notice

                                        
Women will go the extra mile just to please a man or be noticed. But unfortunately many guys do not understand when a woman is trying to catch their attention. 

Most times women go the extra mile to enhance their beauty. However, the true beauty of a woman does not depend much on her makeup. It goes beyond that.

Below are 7 sexy things about a beautiful woman that every man is expected to notice:
