Money is attractive. Anyone who tells you differently is lying, or doesn’t live in modern society.
Why? Because of the social status that comes with money. And the opportunities that come from being rich. Money can buy nice dinners, exotic vacations, and an international-college-education for your future kids.
In his book Models, Mark Manson writes:
“Studies show that women are equally attracted to men that they believe have the potential to be extremely successful as they are to men who are already successful”
2 HEALTHY SELF-ESTEEM
Item Number 2 pains me a lot.
It pains me because I see a lot of genuinely nice people (both guys and girls) get hurt in relationships due to a lack of self-esteem. I’ve felt it myself too.
I’m oversimplifying — but the problems above start from a lack of self-esteem. Or rather, if a guy believed in his own self worth, he wouldn’t be so desperate to get validation from external sources
Oliver Emberton once wrote:
“Neediness is repulsive because we’ve evolved to recognize it as a bad signal. “
It leads to all kinds of unattractive behavior. And if you’ve ever desperately chased a girl who wasn’t interested you’ll know what I mean:
Repeatedly calling her and sending her messages, even though she hasn’t replied.
Stalking her, and planning your life around her schedule.
Trying to prove that you’re better than her guy friends.
Your extreme-feminist friends might disagree, but I’m going to say this anyway: manliness is attractive.
I’m not saying that all men need to behave like macho pigs. I’m not even saying that the below traits are what makes a “real man.” Besides, there isn’t a universal definition of what manliness is.
But I’m writing for straight men who want to attract straight women. And this I know to be true: straight girls are attracted to a guy who has “traditional” manly qualities below:
Strength (Emotional, more than physical)
Honor (e.g. Taking care of loved ones, being loyal to friends, doing work with integrity)
