And Smile often. A smile is the universal sign that says “I’m approachable”. It shows that you are confident and don’t take things too seriously or let them get you down, people feel at ease with someone who seems friendly, and everyone likes to be around happy people.
It doesn’t cost you, and often it pays off. Give genuine and specific compliments. “Nice shirt” doesn’t cut it, “that shirt looks good on you” is an improvement, but “I really like how that shirt fits you, you have good taste” is a step above that. Avoid body-related complements, even “you look like you lost some weight” can be a wild card. Be creative, and be decent.
Spray On a Great Fragrance
Putting on the right fragrance will instantly boost your sex appeal. Generally, women like masculine scents that are fresh & clean. Hold back on your oud-heavy niches. Citrics, woods, and the occasional gourmands (dessert-y scents) hit the right notes with the ladies. Don’t know how what scent to use? My introduction to fragrances/colognes post will give you the map and the mini fragrance reviews will give you a starting point for your fragrance journey.
This one is counter-intuitive, but the less you speak about yourself, the more alluring you become, and the less chance that you will say something stupid. Think Becky is a bitch and Biff is a bastard? Keep them as thoughts. No one likes people who say uncouth things and bad mouth others.
Encourage people to talk. Everyone’s favorite topic is themselves, so let your company talk about their favorite topic. People realize you’ll pay attention to them discuss how their day went, their desires, and their concerns, They will want to be near you,more often. Plus, you always learn more when you listen.
My mother always told me that “there’s a reason we have two ears and only one mouth”.
Put the Phone Down
When you are with someone, show that you value their time and their presence. This especially applies to dates. You invited your love interest for dinner & drinks, not your smartphone. A cellphone won’t give you any loving (until someone makes an app for that) and if your company feels you care more about your phone than them, neither will they. Show interest in them, and they will show interest in you.
Straighten That Back
Good posture displays strength and vitality on a subconscious level. Chin up, chest up, and eyes forward. Sit up straight as you read this page. When you walk, walk with direction, and face the horizon; the ground isn’t going anywhere.
Tip: Books, phones, and tablets, whatever reading apparatus you are using, bring it near face-level. This includes texting.
