Have you ever been around someone that is just infatuating? These are the attractive people we want to marry, become more like, work with, spend time with, etc..
But why do these people appear so attractive? Besides being simply beautiful, physically fit, or optimistic, what others qualities do these kinds of people have that are a little less obvious than just external beauty? Below are some not so subtle traits that I believe can make someone appear more attractive 😉
Maintain eye contact
When it comes to attraction eye contact says a lot. A simple way to show someone that you’re interested in them is through eye contact. When you allow someone to look into your eyes for a longer period of time, you’re allowing them to see how you feel, because often times our eyes reflect our emotional state. When someone is insecure, they often have a tough time maintaining consistent eye contact.
One of the most unattractive traits I believe women can have is comparing themselves to someone else. You are uniquely and beautifully created just the way you are, and there is something only you can offer this world. Something I like to remember (especially when it comes to modeling) is that there will always be some taller, prettier, skinner, and more successful than you. If you’re constantly comparing yourself to those around you, it takes away from your own natural beauty and can be very unattractive as well. There’s is so much personal freedom in realizing that truth. So strive to continually become more like the person you want to be, and remember that everyone has a different pace to their unique journey, so don’t compare your chapter one with someone else’s chapter ten.
Not that I’m really smiling in the picture above, but I believe a smile is one of the most beautiful things a person can have. A smile says, ‘I’m happy and confident in who I am’. A smile radiates a sense of natural beauty and happiness and can have such a positive effect on others.
Invest in self-care
Taking care of your own wellbeing will not only help you feel better but will also allow you to give more to those around you. Self-care can be anything that nurtures you on a deep level. Giving to yourself through self-care does not necessarily require high amounts of effort or money. Giving to yourself can be as simple as taking 15 minutes a day for yourself, getting a massage, enjoying a healthy meal, or reading something that inspires you. Self-care can be different for everyone, and only you know what will satisfy your needs. When we do not practice self-care, we can often feel stressed, tired, and emotionally exhausted. It can be easy to forget our own needs, especially when we often find ourselves supplying the needs of others.
Stand tall (or wear a little heel!)
Standing up straight doesn’t come naturally to most of us, probably because it can take more of an effort rather than simply slouching. But, when you make a conscious decision to stand up straight (wearing some type of heel can definitely help!) not only helps elevate you but also makes you appear taller and more confident. If you’re not a fan of wearing a heel, something I like doing is pretending I have a string running from the floor all the way to the top of my head. When I picture myself standing up tall, I’m imagining that string being pulled upwards so there’s no slack. Naturally, this raises my chin, pushes my shoulders back, and pulls the stomach in tight, making you appear taller.
Leadership is attractive
I believe leadership qualities are in the heart of every human. Strong leaders are authentic, teachable, patience, exemplary and kind, and I truly believe we all naturally have those qualities inside of us. When you’re a leader you live a life of inspiring and helping others attain unique goals, and are confident enough to give people the credit instead of taking it for yourself and because of that people tend to look to you for guidance and assurance, and that’s SO attractive! A good thing to always remember though is that a leader is never bossy, rather set’s a path for those to follow.
