So I was recently thinking about how I don't have many male characters.
Then an idea for one hit me:
"A guy whom a lot of girls find very attractive and are drawn by not only his good looks but also by his (seemingly) cool and aloof personality. Meanwhile inside he's this big awkward nerd who doesn't know how to deal with women so he puts up an aloof front as sort of a defense mechanism."
Don't know if the idea is cliche or whatever but for me it was different, since most the male characters I make tend to be lazy slackers with a sarcastic streak...
