Loyalty, trustworthiness, and honesty are the most desirable qualities in every man, according to Ranker. Unfortunately, these traits are very difficult to see right away when we see a person for the first time. According to a study, we need only one-fifth of a second after taking a look at someone to fall in love. After that, euphoria-inducing chemicals are released in the brain and affect 12 areas of it.
Bright Side has discovered what actions or features of men can attract women immediately. You may disagree with some points, but remember that they are backed by science. Are you ready to learn the truth?
1. Make women laugh
Women like men they can have fun with. According to this study, a good sense of humor helps men seem more creative and intelligent. And this factor translates into mating success.
2. Demonstrate prosocial behavior
Scientists say that single individuals who are frequently engaged in prosocial behavior have higher chances to start a stable relationship within a year. It means that women would prefer an altruistic man who does good deeds for long-term relationships.
3. Present themselves as high-status
We sometimes hear that money is not the key to happiness, but the results of this study are quite interesting. They showed that women preferred men posing near “high-status” objects (for example, expensive apartments or cars) in comparison to ordinary ones.
4. Look older
There is a saying that men become better with age. But does anyone know why? Do they look more attractive with wrinkles, or is it the hint of wisdom in their eyes that make our hearts melt? Now we finally have the answer. It turns out that the attraction lies in a bigger life experience that gives more opportunities to accumulate resources and gain control over them.
5. Put some uncertainty
Shekhar Kapur once said, “I have devoted my life to uncertainty. Certainty is the death of wisdom, thought, creativity.” And this seems to be a true thing for relationships too. It was proven that women who were unaware of whether or not a man liked them a lot ended up being more attracted to the man, in comparison to the lesser attraction that women felt when they were told that the men liked them a lot.
6. Take care of dogs
Nowadays, dog ownership demonstrates substantial caretaking in long-term relations. It signals nurturance the ability to commit. Interesting, even guys who seek short-term relationships become an object of interest among women who are already ready to build a family.
7. Wear red clothes
It turns out that red is not only for women. Scientists say that the color red significantly influences women’s interest in men. During a study, women who saw men in red shirts considered them higher in status and more attractive.
8. Take risks
Women prefer men who are ready to take heroic risks to risk avoiders. This conclusion was made in the research of G. William Farthing. According to results, takers of heroic and non-heroic risks were perceived as more brave, athletic, physically fit, impulsive, and attention-seeking than risk avoiders. But only heroic risk takers were viewed as more altruistic, agreeable, conscientious, and sexy in comparison to those who prefer to avoid danger.
9. Grow a beard
Women tend to choose faces with an intermediate level of beardedness as the most attractive. But men with full beards are perceived as better parents with good health. And the masculinity level increases linearly with the thickness of facial hair.
10. Build muscles
According to this research, women consider men with muscles sexier, more physically dominant, and volatile. But such guys are less committed to their mates. Men with moderate muscularity are rated as the most attractive and they are more likely to have long-term relationships.
11. Show interest in children
Women have a hidden talent to subconsciously determine if a man is interested in children by their facial reactions to determine if such men are ready for a long-term relationship. Could it be easier? Just follow any child with your eyes and smile — and the heart of your beloved woman is conquered.
12. Grow tall
Does height matter? This study proves it does. The scientists asked 601 females about it and got the following answers, “As the girl, I like to feel delicate and secure at the same time.” Along with, “Something just feels weird in thinking about looking ’down’ into my man’s eyes.” The results confirm that women look for specific characteristics in tall men, such as protection and security, to build long-term relationships.
