Sexual attraction is a bit of a mystery to some people. A lot of people think it’s simple and it’s all about looks – but there’s a lot more to it than that. To summarize things a lot – we’re all a part of the human race, and the human race will do anything that it can to survive.
That being said – underneath everything, we’re all programmed to want to survive – which means ‘getting it on’ with someone else.
A woman wants a man that is strong, handsome, and rich – and if he dresses nice and smells good, then even better.
Okay, so I’m kidding a little bit – it’s not THAT simple – so don’t worry.
However, there is some truth to that statement.
Think about this; a woman wants a man that has great genetics because – she wants her children to have great genetics – no one wants an ugly kid.
If he’s strong, he can take care of her, if he’s rich, he can take care of her. Underneath everything, again, it all boils down to survival – our natural human instinct is to survive, and having lots of strong kids is a great way to survive as a race.
There’s a lot to take into account when it comes to sexual attraction, some of it is genetic and just can’t be helped – but luckily, some of it can be helped. We’ll dig more into both of those so you can see what you’re working with and what you can do to look more attractive to women.
So we’ll talk about some of the things you really won’t have a lot of control over – that way the hard stuff is done and out of the way.
Immune System – First on our – thankfully – short list is your immune system.
Yes, as strange as that sounds – your immune system plays a huge role. Studies have been conducted that involve having women smell t-shirts of men from all walks of life.
They never even see the men, but the studies have been shown that the women were more interested in the t-shirts belonging to the men with a different major histocompatibility complex (MHC for short – a collection of genes relating to the immune system) than themselves. Women unconsciously want a man with a different MHC than themselves because this means a stronger immune system (2 in 1).
I know this one is a bit out there in left field, but scientifically it’s true. I wouldn’t say it’s the most important factor – because you can definitely get around this one.
Good looks – The second item of discussion on the list is looks – this can be controlled to an extent, and we’ll talk about that later.
Right now, we’ll just talk about what you’re born with. Women do want a man that’s strong, because it means that they can defend them when times get tough. They also want you to have a nice face. It’s still a bit difficult to really pinpoint what makes a nice face and what makes an awful face – when we look at one, we just know. However, many studies have been done on this topic, and researchers are starting to figure it out.
What you can control
Okay, let’s get into the things that you can control. Some of it might be easy, some of it might be hard – but I’ll lay it all out there for you. Remember, this is what’s important – because it’s something you can DO.
Money – yes, as cliché as it is – and regardless of what a woman tells you, money IS a factor.
This doesn’t mean that all women out for your money, what it means is this: subconsciously, a woman wants a man that will be able to support her and her family. In the ancient caveman days, the man that brought home the most food was attractive – because it meant that HIS family wouldn’t starve.
The same is true today, though the terms are a bit different. A man with more money will be able to support himself and his family.
Attitude – A woman wants a man that has an attitude! No, not necessarily a bad one – but a woman does want a man with a “take charge” type of attitude. This means that a man like this won’t be pushed around and won’t just guess about things. His family will survive because he won’t take crap and he’ll make decisions.
These things are things that you have control over. It is possible for you to make more money – a woman doesn’t want a man that’s broke. Plus, being broke just sucks – so start working on that. That’s a topic that’s well beyond the scope of this article, so I leave that one up to you to look into, but do do it.
You also have control over your attitude. Don’t get pushed around – but don’t go around being a jerk either. Work on being assertive, make decisions for yourself without hesitating a lot, look a person in the eyes – that sort of thing. Take control of your situations.
Also – and this is very important – kiss a woman like you mean it. Studies have shown that many women (nearly 70% – that’s HUGE) have said that they’re not interested in a man that can’t kiss. The reason is this – a kiss will tell a lot about your character. If you’re in charge of the situation and you believe in yourself, then it will show in your kiss. So man up!
… And Back to Looks – Now, then – earlier I said that you don’t have much control over your looks. The truth is you don’t – but at the same time – you do have control over some things. You don’t just have to take the cards that you were dealt. Make sure you pay attention to your hygiene. Shower regularly, wear clean clothes. Wear clothes that are nice and fit you well. Groom yourself – all of those sorts of things.
All of these really fit into that “attitude” category as well – or even “money” also.
Someone that dresses nice might have a little cash. I also mentioned that a woman likes a strong man – and perhaps you topped out at 5’4”, or maybe you’re tall but you’ve got chicken legs. Start going to the gym. You don’t have to be a bodybuilder, but a woman will notice if you’ve got a little meat on your bones. Also, it’s just healthy – so do it.
Hopefully, this article has helped to cut through some of the fog – and now you have an idea of just what sexual attraction is, how it works, and what you can do to look more attractive to women. Continue reading 13 Lusty Signs of Sexual Attraction to Keep an Eye On
