What Makes a Man Attractive to a Woman
We bet you have asked this question more than once, right? You have asked your friends, your family, the mirror? Did any of them give you an accurate answer? No? Well, we're here to help you get things a little bit clearer so you can understand better what makes you more attractive to women. Women are sometimes hard to read, you're not sure what we're thinking and that can be frustrating. There's a reason for that... we're selective.
You may excel in the looks department but that's not all it takes to win us over, we need to observe your actions and how you express yourself, what you say... we want the whole package. So don't assume that because you're good looking we're going to fall at your feet, we want something more. If you're interested in getting that special girl, you'll have to work for it because she's worth it,
Attraction encompasses more than your extremely good look, there are qualities that we appreciate and we're observing them while we're checking you out. Besides liking what we see on the outside, we need to asses if there's more beneath the surface. That's hard to do at first glance, so if you've caught the eye of a woman and want to explore the possibility, here are some tips that can help you be more attractive and win her over.
1. Avoid braggy behavior

We can assume you're not looking for a gold digger right? Then please don't flaunt how well-off you are, it's a total turn off. Braggy behavior is not going to make you more attractive, just the opposite you're going to come as a huge douchebag. On the other hand, modesty will make you attractive. We want to know and will appreciate your achievements but not if you flaunt them.
2. Be authentic
Don't try too hard, really, just be yourself. Women want to know the real you, not the phony guy you think it's going to impress. That gets boring really fast and will not make you more attractive. If you already caught the eye of a woman, and there's some kind of attraction, don't ruin it by showing her someone you're not, she'll notice and you'll have lost your chance.
3. Be Confident

There's nothing sexier than a confident man. A confident man knows what he wants and knows how to get it. He's comfortable showing all his sides, the tough part but also the more vulnerable one. He shows confidence in all that he does, starting with the way he looks at a woman, the way he approaches her, the way he carries a conversation, the way he gives her his undivided attention, the way he talks about himself but also in the way he pays attention when she's talking.
Beware that confidence is not the same as cockiness. Women are repelled by guys that confused the terms.
4. Showing your intelligence
Women love beautiful minds, so don't be afraid to show your mind. Intelligence is such an attractive trait. It shows women that you're more than just a pretty face and it makes them want to know you better. You can show them your intelligence by being witty and funny too. Those two characteristics can help you keep the conversation flowing because you'll make it interesting and that a major turn on.
