How many advertisements and gimmicks do you see that claim to improve your skin, hair, face, body, teeth and so on? Consumers spend billions of dollars on products in an attempt to be more attractive. I’m not against make-up, nail polish, or beauty products but I want to highlight 8 ways to be more attractive. All without spending anything. I hope it’ll make you rethink what makes people attractive.
1. Build Confidence in yourself
No matter the flaws you may see in yourself be confident in your entirety. Think about what you bring to the table. Be confident in how you make people laugh when they’re feeling down. Be confident in your intelligence. When you get a compliment from someone write it down and own it. We need more uplifting people and less bullies.
Smiling will create a light and an unplifting presence that everyone will notice. Smiling exudes confidence, happiness, and satisfaction. People who smile genuinely are easier to approach and will be more socially satisfied.
3. Compliment others
One of the most attractive features I see in my wife is her kindness. She will go out of her way to tell someone that she likes their hair or their smile. She lowers her walls of defense by lifting someone up while others tend to belittle and gossip. That is the number one piece of advice I would give to be more attractive.
4. Gain an education.
Having an intelligent conversation is one of the most satisfying parts of human relationships. There’s more to a man or a woman than physical looks. Being able to talk about current events, sports, profound ideas, or ethical dilemmas will increase your attractiveness. I guarantee it.
5. Have a good work ethic
Life is full of work. If you want to be a princess that is taken care of without working I think you’ll have a hard time in life. Just the same, if you want to be a lazy bachelor and let others take care of you nothing could be more repulsive to women. No matter if you’re a male or female take time to learn necessary life skills. Learn how to cook, do the dishes, do the laundry, clean the bathroom, perform basic car maintenance, and perform lawn maintenance. Overall, know how to work and be willing to do it.
6. Be Virtuous
Self control is an attractive trait that we often overlook. When dating someone you want respect. When in a marriage you want a faithful spouse. When in a friendship you want someone who will lift you up and not bring you to their level.
7. Follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ
The Gospel of Jesus Christ encompasses so many traits that are good. If we act like He did we will surely be more attractive. He was kind, loving, patient, forgiving, and perfect. If we follow Him, we will have a light to us. That’s what I saw and felt the night I met my wife. I have no doubt I was attracted to her because she puts Christ before anyone.
8. Stay positive
Who ever wants to be around someone who’s negative all the time. It’s physically and mentally draining to be around someone who always complains, bickers, suggests better ways of doing things, and exudes pessimism. Write down the reasons you are grateful. What are you thankful for? This ties in with smiling, but being positive is a lifestyle. Even the Savior told us to be of good cheer.
Stand a little taller and smile a little bigger and almost instantly you’ll like yourself a little more.
