Listen, I'm with you. We all want to know what we can do to become more attractive. Some things are simple, while others, we have no control over.

In today's world, most people tend to focus more on what we can't control and use it as an excuse for achieving dating success. From now on, you are NOT going to be of those people.

Below are two videos (thanks, Business Insider) that explain what both men and women find attractive. The cool thing about watching these is that I've mentioned ALL of those to my clients and readers alike, except for one thing. Men, apparently, shouldn't be smiling.

I'm willing to test this out but I can't imagine men acquiring RBF (Resting Bitch Face) and making it work for them. I think what they mean is that men shouldn't be showing teeth and maintain an even disposition; not mad, but not super friendly.

If you want the cliff notes, women are attracted to men wh:o

  • Wear red
  • Have facial hear – specifically stubble
  • Have good posture
  • Smile less
  • Have decent muscles
  • And sweats

And men like women who:

  • Have a waist to hip ratio of 7:10 – mainly a genetic thing
  • Have a higher voice – once again, mainly a genetic thing
  • Healthy, long hair
  • Smile more
  • Wear less makeup
  • Wear red

This seems pretty reasonable and simple to me. We may not know exactly how much our attraction will increase by doing these things but from experience, I can say it can go up a significant amount, depending on the person.

It's no coincidence I've been working out more, growing out my facial hair more, and regularly wearing red on camera and at public events.

It actually works.
