According to R. Don Steele, author of Body Language Secrets: A Guide During Courtship and Dating, women “want someone who’s not going to run from a fight; they want a man who is confident in his ability to provide and protect.”
It’s evolutionary. Men have always been the dominant force, and they’ve always been the ones who have served to protect. From the Romans to the Vikings to Liam Neeson, guys save the day. So if you’re lacking this evolutionary trait, you’re in a bit of bother. But it’s no sweat, because we’re here to help you out.
Nothing says “lack of esteem” more than baggy clothes, dog-ugly trainers and scraggly hair. Nothing screams “CONFIDENT” more than stylish, fashionable attire that fits perfectly. By keeping your wardrobe impeccable, you’ve got a much better chance of projecting the image of a man who knows what he’s doing. You’ll look successful, cool – and confident. You can top your stylish looks off with a swagger, too. You know, perfect a confident walk.
Make Eye Contact
If you try to compliment a woman but end up looking at her feet while doing so, she’s gonna know you’re nervous as hell. She’s gonna know you’re a boy, not a man. If you do feel insecure at looking into her eyes, you can always try the next best option – her mouth. Either way, you’ve gotta establish eye contact with something that matters. Feet don’t matter.
Take A Compliment
Insecure men are always exposed whenever they’re complimented. Instead of taking the compliment with a thank-you, they deflect the praise by saying, “You’re just saying that,” or “What do you mean? Nope, you’re wrong.” Instead, you should smile and thank her for it. Admit that yes, you are great.
Ignore The Three-Day Rule
You’ve probably heard all about the three-day rule. You know, when a woman gives you her number, you shouldn’t call until after three days. That rule is bullshit and you know it. Three days is for kids, whilst a few hours is for losers. For you? Call back within 48 hours. Be action-orientated. Don’t waste time. Confident guys waste no time – they get things done.
Don’t Talk Yourself Down
When you’re getting to know someone, why admit to a few negatives? There’s no need! Instead, edit out the negatives and give her the positives. Don’t drag her down by telling her how your life sucks and how work is getting on top of you. Project the press-release version of yourself.
