A pretty face and an intelligent mind does make you attractive, but so does a good posture.
While we still wrestle with the numerous beliefs of what makes a person truly attractive, there has always been a basic set of them right in front of the eyes. They are scientifically proven, but are weird, because as a species we may have surpassed thinking about them while choosing our mates.
But as weird as they be, they do work on us subconsciously.
1. Put your chin up. It is more masculine
Putting your chin up is more masculine if you are a man, a study says. Keeping your head tilted back is a masculine body language and women find this attractive. Do not let your face s. It is feminine.
It is the exact opposite for the females.
2. Having a symmetrical face and body helps
Not just the face, but the whole body. Symmetrical people are much more attractive than asymmetric people. Good symmetry is a sign of good genes, and we all look for subtle genetic indicators when we look for an appropriate mate. Symmetry is one of them.
3. An average looking face is more attractive
Studies show that average people are actually more attractive than unique-looking people. Scientists think it is because we have a mental database in our brains where we have stored all the faces we know in our life. Thus, subconsciously we have a very good idea of what looks normal, and hence attractive.
4. Get an average crop of facial hair too
A research shows that a full beard is not exactly attractive. A full beard is an indicator of masculinity and aggressiveness.
The research showed that a stubble is much more preferable than a full beard or a clean shaved man.
5. Sweat is a great aphrodisiac
Sweat is full of manly chemicals, whose sole job is to make the man who is sweating more attractive. Androstadienone, a chemical in sweat, can improve women’s moods and arouse them sexually. That is the reason why Matthew McConaughey doesn’t use a deo.
6. Don’t smile at all
In a study where women rated the attractiveness of men, they found the grim-faced men better than the smiling ones. The reason?
Cause smiling is for wusses. Serious expression portrays domination and domination attract women.
Just don’t overdo it by being looking depressed.
7. A long ring finger also makes you attractive
No, this is not one of that palmistry bullshit. This is real science. The length of the ring finger is determined by the amount of testosterone you were exposed to during pregnancy.
In short, the longer your ring finger, the more manly and attractive you are.
8. Get a dog
Turns out a dog is your best wingman. A study sent two sets of men around a town to ask for bus fares and phone numbers from random strangers. The men who were walking with a dog had better chances of getting phone numbers and bus fares.
Get a dog, people.
9. Facial scars are attractive
Women like scarred men. Scars are an indicator of an adventurous lifestyle and of danger, even though you got it because you fell head first in the bathroom.
But the downside to this is, although women find scars attractive, they prefer men with no scars suitable for settling down.
10. Red is the color of sex
Red is the official color of sex and attraction. Men wearing red are linked to a higher social status and being successful.
The color works on your subconscious, and literally convinces people that you are sexy.
11. If you look like her dad, you are in!
Women actually fall for men who look like their dads. And it is not just women, even men find females who look like their moms hotter. It is not just the basic facial features. Even older women are more attractive to men for this same reason.
12. Wait till she ovulates
You have more chances of landing a woman if she is ovulating. Studies show that women become less picky during when they are ovulating.
13. Get to the gym, get bigger muscles
It may sound superficial, but it is true. Bigger muscles are a sign of good health and good genes. They subconsciously attract women, because a better set of genes is always a good choice for a mate.
14. Sit straight up, don’t slouch
It is not just the appearance of you, but even your body language matters. The simplest of all – sitting up straight is an attractive quality in men. Slouchy men are just deemed to be unattractive.
