You don't need a man's approval! But honestly, it's really nice when a boy likes you. You don't need the attention, but you want it. So what makes you attractive to a guy? Is there a specific scientific formula guaranteed to make any man in a five mile radius fall in love with you? Is there a magic potion that you can take to make yourself irresistible? There's not. And different men find different things attractive. But there are some things that are universally appealing to men. Read on and find out what they are!
You don't need to perfect the perfect smoky eye to make your eyes look enticing. You just need to have eyes at all. A more relaxed, natural look is attractive to men. And as a bonus, you won't need to keep on reapplying your makeup to achieve that same level of attractiveness. It's just your face.
When you have a guy in your bedroom, you might be concerned that it isn't as neat as something out of Town & Country. But all the dude is going to think is, "I'm in a girl's bedroom." So don't worry about having a mountain of clothes on your bed. A mountain of empty Cup Noodle cartons might be a different story...
If you have something that really gets you going, that'll get men going. There's more to life than just your bae, so indulge in your interests. Plus if he's passionate about the same things, it'll give you more of a chance to connect!
In the past, women were raised to defer the big decisions to the men, because thinking is man's work! But in actuality, men like it when you take charge and make decisions. So when your bae asks you where you want to eat for dinner, have an answer ready.
Sticky skinny women have the advantage on the runway, but not in the bedroom. Most men like it when a woman's figure is filled out. So don't be embarrassed by your love handles. They're called that for a reason!
Having a sense of humor is usually one of the first things listed on a dating profile. Of course, guys usually mean that they want you to find their jokes funny. But men really do find it more attractive when you share a similar sense of humor. Finding the same things funny is a big key to having a successful relationship. But it also doesn't hurt to laugh at his bad puns, either!
Hollywood might be obsessed with youth, but men prefer women who are a little bit older. When it comes to looking for a long-term partner, men prefer women who have a little bit of life experience under their belt. So don't botox away those crow's feet... unless you're looking for men who are only into hookups.
Surprisingly, men find a certain level of risk taking to be attractive. Not risks like trying to drive a car blindfolded, but risks like rock climbing. So if you're trying to think of a great place for a date, you might want to take him skydiving or skiing. But don't pick "drug den" as a location for a date. Again, that's the bad kind of risk.
You might think that a high-pitched voice would come off as grating. But really, it's attractive to both men and dogs. Having a high pitched, slightly breathy voice implies that the speaker is youthful and has a small frame. So put away the cigarettes because you don't need a husky voice to seem hot!
While the image of the damsel in distress might be outdated, dudes like it when they know that you need them. Everyone wants to feel useful. So even though you can hold your own doors, you should still ask him for help from time to time. It'll make him feel like a man.
Nobody wants to date Debbie Downer. Sure, you're not going to be happy all the time. Not even Pollyanna could pull that off. But if you're generally pleased and don't complain about every little thing, you'll come off as more attractive.
It doesn't matter what your style is, just as long as you have one. Ever wonder why so many Basics find boyfriends? They own that their style is vanilla. It's who they are. They embrace it. It doesn't matter if you're Basic, BoHo or a ballerina. You do you!
