If you’ve always wondered how to increase your attractiveness to the opposite sex, or are just plain curious about nature’s biological laws of attraction.
Here are 9 scientifically proven ways women can appear more attractive to men.
Smiling makes a woman 10 times more attractive to a man because it stimulates the sensory rewards circuit part of his brain.
Smiles are disarming, which puts him at ease, making him more comfortable in your presence. Smiling will also make him think you like him and we’re all attracted to those who like us.
8. Wear Red
The color red has been proven to enhance a man’s attraction to a woman because it makes them appear more sexually desirable.
It’s believed that a plump red lip mimics the widening of blood vessels that occurs during sexual arousal- subconsciously reminding him of the obvious.
7. Lengthen Your Hair
Long hair is universally symbolic of femininity and grace.
If you can’t naturally grow your hair to Rapunzel like lengths, hair extensions are a great substitute. Just remember to keep it as realistic and believable as possible.
In a study conducted in 1995, men were shown photographs of both women with long and short hair, and regardless of facial features, women with longer hair scored consistently more attractive than those with short hair.
6. Hangout With Girlfriends
Individual faces will seem more attractive when presented in a group because they will appear more similar to the average group face, which is more attractive than group members’ individual faces.
It basically means that even if you’re not the best looking of the bunch, when you’re with a group of friends, you’ll automatically look even better than you usually do on your own .
5. Look Symmetrical
The science behind the attractiveness of a symmetrical face and body, is the indication it gives off that an individual has the genetic goods to survive development, is healthy, and is a good and fertile choice for mating.
If you choose a perfectly symmetrical partner and reproduce with them, your offspring will have a better chance of being symmetric and able to deal with perturbations.
4. Mimic His Body Language
If he runs his hands through his hair, wait a few minutes and “unconsciously” do the same.
He’ll subconsciously get the message that you’re into him, and it will make him think he likes you too.
Body language is a powerful communicator and very important in the early stages of physical attraction, as it helps to convince the other person that you share a lot in common.
First impressions are everything, aren’t they?
3. Heighten Your Voice
In females, a higher pitched voice signifies youth and a smaller body.
It also subconsciously reminds men that women are the fairer and more delicate sex, in need of providing and protecting by someone “stronger.”
While a low and rich voice a la Mariah Carey is definitely considered by men to be sexy, studies have shown that a higher and softer speaking voice a la Marilyn Monroe triggers his protective instincts, which really isn’t a bad thing.
2. Look Alike
As creepy as it may sound, people are typically attracted to other people who physically remind them of themselves.
Research actually shows spouses with genetic similarities are more likely to have a happy marriage and are also willing to sacrifice more for each other, as strange as it may sound.
So don’t be afraid to give the guy from last night at the bar who looked an awful lot like your cousin Matt, a chance.
1. Be Curvy
Men prefer a larger waist to hip ratio of 7:10, one of the reasons being that a curvier bottom half is an important factor in child birthing, indicating fertility.
When men see a ratio they perceive to be favorable, they’re subconsciously thinking, “she can have my baby.”
A study at the University of California showed that women with larger hips, thighs and buttocks, actually perform better in intelligence tests, as do their children.
If you’re not naturally built this way, don’t fret. There are plenty of non surgical ways to alter and enhance your figure including waist training, proper nutrition, and exercises such as squats and crunches.
