It’s not always physical appearance that makes a person look attractive. Someone can be charming and adorable because they possess qualities that can’t be physically seen.
You know, it’s not always easy to say the reasons why you like someone. Perhaps it’s the way they laugh or communicate their ideas; perhaps it’s their sharp or sarcastic wit; or perhaps it’s just that they make you feel comfortable when you’re around them.
Whatever the reason, there’s just something about them that makes them extremely attractive and irresistible. It’s like they possess some magnetic force that attracts everyone around them, and I repeat – this has nothing to do with their looks.
Are you wondering what qualities make you attractive in more than just physical ways? If your answer is yes, then continue reading:
People who are self-aware are attractive because they’re approachable and easy to maintain a relationship with. Why?
Because they know both their strengths and weaknesses. They’re aware of their insecurities, fears, and failures and they don’t feel ashamed because of them. They also never beat about the bush, but express their feelings and opinions honestly and directly.
So, if you want to make yourself attractive, be more aware of both your good sides and flaws. Accept and cherish yourself the way you are. And, of course, be more straightforward and direct in your conversations with others.
People who feel comfortable in their own skin and believe in their abilities and strength ooze charm. Confident people know exactly who they are and they don’t feel the need to pretend to be someone they’re not so as to impress others, and jealousy is a term they know nothing of.
When you believe in and feel good about yourself, it means you’re in control of your emotions and actions. It also means that you possess the willingness and courage to deal with tough situations and face challenges and risks. And last but not least, it means you’re not afraid to take responsibility and apologize for your mistakes.
Believe me, the more you ooze confidence, the more charismatic and attractive you’ll appear to others.
3. Have big goals.
People easily get attracted to someone who has clear, high goals and works hard to fulfill them. Someone who knows what they want in life and what their priorities are. Someone who believes in and pursues their dreams no matter how unattainable these may appear to others.
On the other hand, a person who has no goals and desires and who doesn’t know where they’re headed in life is like a book without an idea and a message. Why would anyone read such a book?
4. Stop complaining.
A person who constantly complains about how miserable their life is or how dissatisfied they’re with their physical appearance can never be attractive. Nobody wants to be in the presence of someone who constantly whines and talks about their problems.
So, instead of being negative and complaining about your problems, or about what you don’t have in life, or about your lost opportunities, focus on and start to appreciate all that you have in life.
Remind yourself of your abilities, potential, and successes and put your energy, time, and thoughts into finding a solution to whatever is bothering you.
5. Body language.
The first impression you leave on someone depends, in good part, on your body language. Standing straight, making eye contact, and smiling more often when talking with someone will certainly make you look confident and attractive to the point of being irresistible.
6. Focus on the person you’re talking with.
Unless it’s important to answer a call or replay to a message, don’t use your phone when you’re having a conversation with someone. You can check your inbox on Facebook or how many likes your selfie on your Instagram profile has after you finish talking with the other person.
It’s really rude to stare at your phone or elsewhere when talking to someone. So, make sure you avoid all distractions and pay more attention to what the other person is saying instead. Let them know you’re attentively listening to them and show interest in their opinions.
Trust me – there isn’t a person who doesn’t enjoy being around someone who is an amazing listener.
7. Become a great storyteller.
There’s something very attractive about a person who is an amazing speaker and can start a good, interesting conversation. You don’t have to be extremely talented to make almost every story compelling or funny.
Just speak with clarity and confidence, make eye contact, and use humor. Express your ideas in a clear, and yet, pleasant and entertaining way. Make jokes at your expense and be positive. And in cases where you’re telling sad stories, make sure you show emotions.
8. Don’t copy others.
There’s no point in imitating someone’s facial expressions or the way they talk, walk, or dress because this doesn’t make you unique or irresistible at all.
So, instead of copying someone, or pretending to be someone you’re not, be yourself. Show that you have your own identity and feel good in your own skin.
By being yourself, you’ll never have to wonder whether you look attractive, charismatic, and irresistible to others. Because you’ll know you do.
