Want to be more attractive? Keep in mind that it’s not just about good genes. Sure, having a chiseled jawline (for men), and the body of a goddess (for women) helps. However, your personality, self-confidence, self-love, and many other factors which you’re in control of contribute a great deal to your overall attractiveness.
Long term studies have concluded that attractive people have it easier in their social and professional circles. In that regard, let’s get into some tips on how to be more attractive.
Make Direct Eye Contact
The eyes are the windows to the soul. Your eyes are a reliable source of information to people around you. Do you have any vulnerabilities or worries? Feeling down or ashamed? One look into your eyes will say it all. Studies have found that direct eye contact screams confidence, attractiveness, warmth, and emotional stability.
When you’re listening to or having a conversation with someone, maintain eye contact. Put some emotional tone into it without being too intimidating. Confident, attractive people aren’t as prone to the expected social tension that often accompanies eye contact. So send some positive energy while you’re looking at others.
Wear Clothes That Highlight Your Body Shape
Throwing on loose clothes hides your body’s unique contours. The idea is not so much as to show off your height, curves, or weight, but rather to display your acceptance of your body to the world. That’s attractive. Oversized clothes give off subtle hints of self-rejection. Chances are, you won’t be attracting anyone that way. Throw on some nice fitting clothes, feel sexy and be proud of your own body. Stock up on some custom-tailored clothing, tight fitting jeans and don’t be afraid to show the world what’s on the menu.
Spend More on Scents and Oral Hygiene
Bad breath and body odor are two universally unacceptable things. While good hygiene is recommended, extra oral hygiene is always appreciated. Double down on the number of times you show some love to your mouth (2x a day, just like you tell your dentist). While you’re at it, shop for some cologne or perfume. Settle for something sophisticated. There’s a whole world worth of brands waiting to be discovered.
Hydrate More and Put on Some Sunblock
You’d be surprised to learn how many celebrities attribute the flawless nature of their skin to sunscreen and its ability to keep the skin safe and looking young. Before you head out, apply a healthy coat of sunscreen every day - even during the winter or on cloudy days. Drink lots of water as well, and the results will begin to show in no time. Who doesn’t love youthful, radiant skin? With the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB radiation out of the way and healthy skin, you’re sure to catch the attention of more than a few people.
Always Say Hello
Each one of us harbors the desire to be recognized, seen, and feel valued. Saying hello is a short-cut to achieving that result. Whether you are meeting somebody you know or a total stranger, say hello with warmth and kindness. Show everyone love in all your interactions, particularly when you greet them. This sets the tone right off the bat and makes it that much easier to proceed. Fill your hellos with as much presence, love, care, attentiveness, and excitement as possible. And always remember to conclude your most personal messages with a P.S.
Invest in Your Shoes
This one doesn’t come as a surprise. Your shoes will get noticed a great deal more than any other item you’re wearing. Wearing cheap running shoes when you aren’t at the gym will get you the wrong kind of attention. Get yourself some stylish shoes that will stir up some positive comments. These might cost you, but you can’t put a price tag on being super attractive. The payoff is that you will get a different kind of attention than you were previously getting.
Be the Challenge People Want
The biggest mistake most people make is to make things too easy. Making it obvious that you’re willing to do anything to get attention is unattractive. People dislike those who constantly seek approval - this applies to both men and women. Want to be more attractive? Don’t be just another guy who instantly puts people on a pedestal. Give yourself some credit, and make people earn your attention. Set standards and be willing to walk away. Funny thing is, showing people you’re willing to walk away will almost certainly ensure that they don’t let you.
Cultivate a Sense of Humor
You don’t have to be a stand-up comedian. But if you can get people to laugh, they’ll be eating out of your palm in no time. It’s not just what you say, but how you say it. With some confidence and a few witty jokes here and there, you will up your attraction game. The trick is, don’t try too hard to be funny - just be yourself.
Following the tips above can make you more attractive. However, the art of attraction starts with you. Practice self-love and choose to be your most confident, happy self. If you can’t manage to feel attractive to yourself, odds are no one else will be attracted to you either. Once you’ve mastered these tips and start attracting the hotties, remember to enjoy it safely. Always end it with a P.S.
