5 Science Proven Things a Man Can Do to Be More Attractive
Ladies love tall men with handsome faces. Good to know, but we can’t do anything about it. Thankfully, scientists have also identified what a man can do to increase his attractiveness.
1. Smile less
Yes, smile less. According to this study, women prefer those brooding types to smiley faces. They find smiling men feminine and less dominating.
Smiling will work if you are trying to impress her parents, but not when you are trying to get the girl. Interesting to note is that men rated smiling women higher over others.
Get that scowl face on, young men!
2. Build muscles
Women prefer men with muscles. This answers why so many men spend so much time at the gym.
The study suggests women associate muscles with good genes and relate it to reproductive success. So, head over to the gym and build those guns. However, please do not mutate into a “Bro.”
3. Wear a heavy stubble
Women associate facial hair with maturity and masculinity. Probably it’s a good thing for the lazy types — you can snooze for another 10 minutes.
From the study, “Masculinity ratings increased linearly as facial hair increased, and this effect was more pronounced in women in the fertile phase of the menstrual cycle, although attractiveness ratings did not differ according to fertility.” Who knew there is a legitimate science behind the hipster movement.
4. Wear red
Studies conducted by researchers at the University of Rochester and other institutions found that red clothes makes a man more attractive and sexually desirable. And apparently, women are unaware of this effect.
Red is a symbol of power. Women view men in red as higher in status, more likely to make money and more likely to climb the social ladder.
Now you know what you are getting this Christmas.
5. Sweat more
Women get turned on by the smell of sweat. Androstadienone is a chemical compound that has been described as having strong pheromone-like properties in humans. It is a metabolite of the sex hormone testosterone. According to this study, It has been reported to increase attraction, affect subjects’ mood, cortisol levels and activate brain areas linked to social cognition, among other effects.
There you have it folks.
