Tips for straight men: how to improve yourself and look even more appealing to women

Many straight men are wondering if they are doing something wrong. Other guys seem to attract the attention of the most beautiful women. What's the difference between those men and themselves? This hub gives several very useful tips that all men should know. Women have many things in common, including the types of men that we like. You should put your best face forward and attract the love of your life today.

Get the right eyeglasses – A pair of appropriate eyeglasses or sunglasses will give your face a major boost. As a rule of thumb, you should get a pair of plastic and square shaped for the best results. Round metal frames tend to make a man look less trendy and more geeky. When you select a pair of sunglasses, you should not go for the oversized styles that are popular with women. I am not affiliated with any company, but I would recommend Oakley or Ray-ban brand sunglasses. The sunglasses that you pick should be in proportion to your face. But what is too big or small for your face? I have included several pictures of men wearing the right size for their faces. See below for more details.

Keep your beard shaved or neatly trimmed – Most women tend to like a clean shaven guy. Women (including myself) love to see a very clean cut man and touch his smooth skin. While some men will argue that they appear more manly with a full beard, it tends to become the focal point of their face. Some studies show that women will perceive clean shaven men significantly more attractive. Some even say that bearded men look older and more aggressive. Most men do not like to shave. However, if you want to attract a beautiful lady, maybe it worth the trouble.

Most men look better with short hairstyles – Hairstyle is another thing that you have control over. Although most men do not have model good looks and body shapes, you can still improve your current look significantly when you know what women like. Short hairstyles look really good for most men. There are slight variations of short hairstyles and I have listed them below. As a rule of thumb, you have to know the shape of your face to pick the most appropriate hairstyles.

Choose the appropriate shirt – A good shirt reflects good style. Women subconsciously or consciously judge people by the way they dress. A good dresser will win some points in her mind when you guys meet for the first time. White shirt is difficult for most men to pull off because it tends to be a little bit see through. Although white color looks good for lots of men, you will have to be careful with that color. If the fabric of the white shirt is very thin, some body parts will be visible. I am not going to mention that body part, but I think everyone gets it here. When you must wear white, you will want to select a white dress shirt made of thicker material and wear undershirt if necessary. As for other colors, blue is a great color that flatters most men.

Length of your clothing is very important – If you want to look good, the length of your shirt and pants are very important. When you are very short, it is necessary to get your clothes tailored to fit your body better. Tall men should go to specialty stores to get things that fit their bodies better than regular sizes.

Ask your girlfriend, female friends and other female acquaintances what looks better – Your best male bodies are not experts in fashion. When you want to get advice in fashion, you should ask a stylish woman. She will tell you what colors go with your skin tone and if a particular piece looks good on you or not.

Aside from looks, a man's confidence and nice behavior will attract lots of good women. It is also important to remember that lots of women are still waiting for you to make the first move. You should be brave enough to let her know that you like her. Confidence is a good quality that makes a guy look very attractive. Some men argue that good guys finish last. However, it is not true. While you should not let a woman take advantage of you in any way, you should be nice to a good woman. Personality is always more important than your looks, but a good first impression will definitely help you when you meet the special lady.

Thanks. Those are good tips and I think especially the last comments about personality, confidence and being nice to women. Although with my looks it is a bit harder to make an impression. Still trying.

Peace +
