13 scientifically proven ways to make yourself more attractive

Everyone is beautiful in his or her unique way, but there are a few things that can make all of us a little more irresistible.
  • Everyone is beautiful in his or her unique way, but there are a few things that can make all of us a little more irresistible according to science.

  • 1. Lean in when someone speaks

  • People love talking about themselves, so lean in when they speak to show you are listening. Good listeners are hard to find and irresistibly attractive.

  • 2. Wear a unique perfume

  • Smell is the strongest sense to trigger memories. Obviously smelling great is important for attraction, but be careful you don't wear a really popular cologne or perfume. You'd hate to be triggering bitter memories of an ex girlfriend or boyfriend.

  • 3. Surround yourself with people

  • For whatever reason, people are more attractive when they are in a group of people than when they are alone. So when looking for a date, bring others along with you.

  • 4. Change your pitch

  • There's a whole complicated science behind this, but in short: women like men with deeper voices because it represents a larger frame, and men prefer women with higher, breathier voices, because it suggests a smaller frame.

  • 5. Smile

  • Smiling can compensate for a lot of unattractiveness according to this study. We also naturally interpret smiling to equal happiness, and people are drawn to happy people.

  • 6. Own a puppy

  • Guys, puppies are adorable, and science has shown that dogs are the most attractive pet to women. A woman is more likely to be interested in a man who owns a dog. And 75 percent of women surveyed said they would not date someone who doesn't like pets according to a study by University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

  • 7. Tell a joke if you're a man

  • Women especially are attracted to men that are funny. Slip a witty line to your friends while she passes by, and you'll be just that much more appealing to her.

  • 8. Laugh if you're a woman

  • Men also want women with a "good sense of humor," but a study reported that men don't necessarily want women to be funny - a guy is attracted to a woman who laughs at his jokes.

  • 9. Wear red

  • For women, this is strange but true. Men are more attracted to you when you wear red.

  • 10. Talk about real things

  • Small talk won't get you anywhere. Find out what the other person really cares about and focus on that. Remember point one: People love talking about themselves.

  • 11. Do something nice

  • You are significantly more attractive if someone sees or hears about something kind you have done according to this study.

  • 12. Take the lead

  • If someone thinks you are powerful (or in charge), they are more likely to be attracted to you according to this study. The study discovered that those within a group were more attracted to a group leader than those who had no part of the group. So seize those opportunities to lead!

  • 13. Choose your music wisely

  • Women are subconsciously drawn to more complicated music. Keep this in mind when choosing your date soundtrack.
