Red is the color of romance. It’s also the color you should wear if you want women to stand up and pay attention to you.
Studies have found that women perceive men wearing red as higher status and more likely to make money. So throw in some red shirts within your wardrobe.
Find a scent and strength that works for you, and put it on first thing after you get out of the shower. If you find that you get sweaty or smelly during the day, carry deodorant in your backpack or briefcase and reapply.
If you forget to put on deodorant before you leave the house, find some hand sanitizer and wipe it on your armpits — it’ll kill the bacteria that produce body odor. You might have to reapply a few times during the day.
Unscented deodorant reduces the possibility of you making people allergic.
In a 2010 study from the University of Wales Institute, it was found that men who were pictured with an expensive car, such as a Bentley Continental GT, were seen as significantly more attractive than those who were pictured with a Ford Fiesta ST. Similarly, common sense tells us that this also applies to wearing nice clothes and looking sharp as opposed to sloppy.
Turns out nice guys don’t finish last. A 2016 study out of the University of Guelph and Nipissing University surveyed 800 people in an attempt to better understand the relationship between altruism, attraction, and sex. The researchers asked participants about their sexual history as well as how often they engage in selfless acts, such as charity work and donating blood.
It turns out that folks who do good things for the sake of, well, being good, got laid more.
Present Yourself Well
How you present yourself in public speaks volumes about how you live your life and what you prioritize.
If you leave the house in a ripped Mountain Dew hoodie, cargo shorts, and flip-flops in the middle of Winter, you’re not exactly giving the impression that you care to look good or have your life in order.
Dress to impress
She wants to know you’ve accomplished something in your life, or at least have a good sense of where you want to be, without you being super braggy.
A good-fitting pair of jeans, crisp button-down and nice shoes also go a long way. Baggy sweatpants hanging below your boxers? Not so much.
It’s so true that you only get one chance to make a great first impression. What you’re wearing tells a lot about how you want to present yourself to the world. So dress to impress, and don’t take any shortcuts.
Ditch the Baggy Jeans
Unless you recently lost weight and haven’t gone shopping yet, there is absolutely no reason for you to own baggy jeans.
Sure, they might be roomy and comfortable, but they’re not doing your professional image any favors.
To upgrade your look tenfold, swap out your baggy pants for slim-fit jeans that conform to your body.
Buy several pairs—preferably, in dark wash denim—and pair them with your favorite button-down shirt for a business-casual look that you can wear to the office, date night and beyond.
Be true to your own style
You should always be true to yourself. However, that doesn’t mean that you should look like a slob. Choose nice, clean, new fashionable clothes. You don’t have to wear suits all the time, but you should have a distinct style that fits your personality.
Have a sense of humor
“He makes me laugh,” is one of the reasons women often say they find their mate attractive. A sense of humor in a man has been scientifically proven to draw the attention of women. “Studies have found that both women and men list ‘a sense of humor’ as a highly desirable trait in a potential romantic partner,” Dr. Beall says. “But other studies have found that only women actually rate a funnier man as more desirable—women’s desirability was less affected by how funny they actually were.” This means women want men who make them laugh, but men want women to laugh at their jokes.
Present yourself as high status
A 2010 study from the University of Wales Institute found that men pictured with a Silver Bentley Continental GT were perceived as way more attractive than those pictures with a Red Ford Fiesta ST.
And a 2014 study from Cardiff Metropolitan University found that men pictured in a luxury apartment were rated more attractive than those in a control group.
Interestingly, men don’t seem to be more attracted to women when they’re pictured in a high-status context.
Men Seek Commitment And Fidelity
It is a common misconception that men want to indulge in relationships with more than one woman all the time. But that is not always true. When a man decides to get seriously involved, he can and will stay committed, and he expects the same from his partner.
What To Do
It is not enough to be committed. Let him know through your words and actions that the relationship means a lot to you.
Men Seek Stability And Growth
A common perception about men is that they are not interested in stability or growth in their relationships. But, the fact is that men want to grow in a relationship with a mature and dependable partner.
What To Do
Be mature in your approach. When you create a healthy space for growth and maturity, you will be surprised to see how quickly he will want to take the relationship to the next level.
You have your own individual style. This is what makes you different. Make sure to always have your clothing clean and ironed. Never just take it out of the hamper just because it sort of smells okay. Always have a good selection to choose from in your closet. You should keep a variety of pants, shorts, shirts, suits etc. Women always look to see how a man is dressed.
Your fragrance and body odor can awaken even hidden instincts in women. Wearing the right perfume will make you become more confident and attractive.
