Although we may be confident in our appearance and satisfied with how we look that doesn’t necessarily mean that we are attractive to other people. Even if you are the most important person in the world you may be sending out the wrong signal to everyone around you. First impressions mean everything and there are certain things you can be doing to make yourself more attractive to those around you.
Smiling is one of the easiest ways to make yourself attractive. Even extremely beautiful people are less attractive if they are constantly scowling. If you smile when you meet people or during conversation, it will make you more approachable to those around you. It makes you more friendly and attractive when you are smiling and there is even a theory that when you smile it sends signals to your brain that create happiness!
Always Make Eye Contact
When you are talking to someone you should be looking at them. If someone is talking to you and you are on your phone or noticeably detached from the conversation it sends a bad signal and gives off the impression that you are uninterested. Making eye contact will increase the intimacy between you and the person you are having a conversation with.
When someone is telling you something, you should listen. It is the same as above, people can tell when you are detached from a conversation because you aren’t listening. This will repel people and make them not want to speak to you, if people feel they aren’t being listened to then they will be annoyed about repeating themselves and will be less likely to listen to you.
People love hearing compliments and giving them can make you feel pretty good. If you think something nice about someone you should tell them. It should be noted that you should only give compliments when you actually mean them though. Nobody likes fake people and it is usually fairly obvious when you give a compliment you don’t mean. Being genuine makes you a more attractive person, inside and out.
Take Care of Yourself
This may seem like an obvious one but everyone can at least make some effort to make them self more aesthetically attractive. This can be as simple as washing your hair to give it that new lease of life, or maybe wearing that lipstick on a night out. Taking care of your appearance doesn’t necessarily mean that you are vein. It simply means that you make an effort.
Being imperfect actually puts people at ease and makes you more relatable. Admitting your mistakes and accepting them is one of the most beneficial things you can do in order to be at peace with yourself and have others accept you also. Above all else you should be able to laugh at yourself. There is a reason people say ‘if you don’t laugh you’ll cry’ and this could not be more true. When faced with tough decisions you must make on and if it is the wrong one you simply have to accept that and move on. Don’t dwell on your mistakes because contrary to what you think, no one else is.
