It can be easy to compare ourselves to other people, especially when we feel self-conscious about our body shape or skin. But thankfully, there’s no objective measure of attractiveness. It’s actually a relative question: who do YOU attract?
It’s not just the creams you put on your skin or what you don’t eat that keeps you beautiful. Everyone’s unique and so it’s not as simple as that. It’s often the thoughts you have about yourself or the way you view others that’ll influence how others perceive you.
Here are 9 straightforward habits of women who always stay attractive…
Being genuine and unique are two common characteristics of attractive women. They’re interested in leading the herd and not just following. Attractive women are truly not afraid to be who they are.
A 2019 study found that acting authentically may increase the chances of attracting the type of person who tends to have successful long-term relationships.
2. Prioritize Yourself
Make time throughout your day for you whether it be through exercising, reading, or whatever hobby you have. As an attractive woman, you need to put yourself before others at times. This isn’t selfish. It’s healthy.
It shows others that you know how to look after yourself and sets the tone. It also means you can help others without burning yourself out and communicates to others that your help is valuable.
A 2009 study from Cardiff, Wales found that people who smile more may actually feel happier. And a 2013 study found that, when faces differed only in whether they were smiling or not, people preferred the smiling faces.
This isn’t rocket science. A smile equals warmth, openness, and calmness. It really goes a long way, so remember to smile!
4. Personal Growth
Attractive women focus on developing themselves by creating personal goals, starting new hobbies, and finding growth opportunities. This winning combo of humility from learning new skills and confidence in eventually mastering them will make you appear quietly self-assured without being arrogant.
5. Take Responsibility
Rather than complaining, learn to own your mistakes, environment, and actions. Constantly complaining will make you self-absorbed and miserable and in fact, (you’ll like this)… a 1996 study suggests that complaining (or being complained to) for 30 minutes can shrink your brain!
So rather than shrinking people’s neurons, start being more attractive instead.
Beauty requires maintenance and exercise helps maintain the body from the inside out. Not only will you feel stronger and healthier on the outside, but you’ll also have the confidence on the inside. And if you’re new to exercise, start small and find what type of workout best suits you.
A 1997 study found that, within a dating context, the deeper the questions asked and answered, the more likely a couple would fall in love. Being able to hold a meaningful conversation is a trait of an attractive woman.
Learn more, become more cultured. If you’re able to share someone’s thoughts in a niche topic, you’ve already communicated to them that you’re unique, intelligent, and fun to talk to.
8. Sense of Humor
Having a good sense of humor is important. It makes you come off as more approachable, friendly, and comfortable to be around. A 2015 study supported the long-held view that humor and perceived attraction are somehow linked.
9. Be a Good Listener
When people know they’re being listened to attentively, they’re more likely to trust you since, technically, they understand that you’re not getting any immediate benefit yourself by listening to them—it simply shows that you care.
Attractiveness is not just about what you eat or how you look, it’s how you treat others and even how you treat yourself that affects the way you’ll be perceived. And thankfully, these are all simple habits that anyone can adopt!
