How to be irresistible to men – 19 secrets to make their heads turn

There is no exact science to the laws of attraction. However, it’s been observed these qualities are found to be more desirable to men.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to have all of these qualities! Just a few will do the trick. And don’t forget, every guy is different!

1. Be confident

As we’ve mentioned above, confidence is one of the essential things when it comes to being irresistible to men. So if you’re looking for the primary tip to draw guys to you, it’s all about owning your confidence.

So many women assume confidence comes with having the perfect body and flawless makeup, but it’s not that at all. If you’re confident, you could wear a paper bag as a dress and still look like a supermodel. Confidence is showing the world you value yourself and that you see your self-worth.

Own who you are, even your flaws and insecurities. Not only are men able to read that insecurity like a book, but you’ll struggle in progressing as a person if you lack confidence. [Read: 25 traits that guys find incredibly attractive in a girl]

2. Have some mystery

Do you know what really draws guys to a certain girl? The element of mystery. If he can’t read you like an open book *at least not at first*, then he’ll be curious to get to know you further.

You don’t have to tell the guy all your personal details, after all. He doesn’t need to know about your past relationship drama or your fear of pig’s feet.

Mystery keeps men wanting to find out more about you, making you irresistible. Not bad, eh? So even if you’re tempted to reveal all your secrets, be mysterious. [Read: How to be mysterious without going completely overboard in the role]

3. Steer clear of drama

Men don’t like drama. And although they may enjoy some gossip now and then, they don’t appreciate it when the drama is being produced by someone they may be interested in. This huge red flag turns men off.

Drama means negativity, and that’s a big no for guys. Who wants to be with someone who constantly talks about other people behind their backs? Exactly.

So, next time you want to gossip, perhaps save it for your best friend, or even better, don’t share it. [Read: Don’t stay stuck – 16 strategies to get your shit together]

4. Show your softer side

If you want to be irresistible to men, you need to reinforce the idea that there’s nothing wrong with playing sports and getting your hands dirty. Men love a girl who can hold their own ground and play rough. However, they also like femininity.

For sure, that doesn’t mean you have to ditch playing baseball or drinking beer. You can do all that, but don’t be afraid to also tap into your feminine side.

Really, it’s all about finding the perfect balance between your feminine side and your not-so-feminine side. [Read: 20 hot tips to be the ultimate feminine beauty]

5. Be independent

Like confidence, independence is such an attractive trait when it comes to learning how to be irresistible to men. This applies to everyone, everywhere. No one likes a stage-five clinger.

Guys love women who don’t change their entire world for them. You can show your affection, but also show you’re capable of standing on your own two feet.

If he sees you have a life of your own and you live it unapologetically, that’s so damn attractive for guys. [Read: How to be a strong independent woman that men love]

6. Be relaxed

If you’re five minutes late for your dinner reservations and you’re breaking out in a stress sweat, you need to calm down. Guys aren’t into women who freak out about every little thing. You might’ve heard this a few times, but guys tend to like someone who’s pretty chill.

So take a deep breath and settle down. Enjoy life. Life is serious and complex enough, and there’s no need to break a sweat and stress about literally everything.

If you’re relaxed, he’ll be relaxed and feel much more comfortable around you. [Read: Calm your mind – How to get the inside voices out of your head]

7. Don’t be afraid to laugh

We probably speak for everyone when we say laughing is attractive! Laugh! Laugh until you cry. Try not to laugh until you pee your pants— it can happen.

Laughing between people creates trust and intimacy. You want that. But, you don’t need to laugh at every single thing or pull a fake laugh because he’ll notice.

Be genuine with your laughter, and he’ll appreciate it. It’ll also boost his ego. Again, guys don’t like girls who are too serious in life. [Read: How to smile more often – baby steps to change your life forever]

8. Hold eye contact

The eyes are the window to the soul. Yes, we know, a cliché, but it’s true. Eye contact is a great way to use nonverbal communication. It also makes the person feel important and singled out *in a good way*. 

If he’s talking to you, look at his eyes *of course, not in a creepy and stalker-ish way*!

Looking at him will make him think you’re engaged and interested in the conversation. [Read: The all-in woman’s guide to making eye contact with men]

9. Keep up your hygiene

We don’t care how lazy you are, hygiene is high on the list if you want to know how to be irresistible to men. Without proper hygiene, it’s not just a red flag but an automatic turn-off for all guys! Let’s aim for a shower once a day and possibly a laundry cycle once a week—baby steps.

If you do the basics, you’ll be fine. Men like clean women. Having proper hygiene and looking presentable is always sexy for guys. [Read: Importance of first impressions – secrets to help you make a good one]

10. Don’t be impatient

We know you want that first date so badly. However, texting him 50 times a day and stalking him on Facebook changes nothing. You have to be patient. Men don’t like to feel pressured to make choices or be suffocated.

Just relax and take it day by day.

He’ll eventually come around and ask you on a date when it’s the right time or when he’s ready. Until then, don’t let your impatience show. [Read: 15 classy ways to make a guy crazy over you]

11. Take pride in how you look

Are you still wearing your sweatshirt from grade nine because it fits? Congratulations, but it’s time for you to donate that. There is no way that is still in style. Take pride in how you look.

You don’t need to look like the best person or the most fashionable person in the room, but you need to take pride in the way you look.

This is also connected to confidence, as you can’t take pride in your looks without the necessary confidence. This isn’t about upstaging other women, but it shows you value yourself. [Read: Physical attraction tips to look way hotter]

12. Cut the negative attitude

This sucks. That’s boring. Ew, I would never do that. Oh great, negative Nancy has arrived. Are there any men in a fifty-mile radius around you? Probably not. There’s no need to be negative all the time.

This won’t get you anywhere if you’re serious about learning how to be irresistible to men. It’s time to look at the brighter side of life. People want to be around people who make them feel good. [Read: Is your negative thinking ruining your life? 20 signs and tips to cope]

13. Ignore him… for a bit

If you put everything on a silver platter, sure it looks nice, but he already knows he has that as an option. Play hard to get. We know, love shouldn’t be about games, but this isn’t about games. This is about showing guys you’re not just going to fall into their laps.

Guys generally love a challenge, so why not give it to them? If you want to be irresistible and make a guy chase you, ignore him for a little while. [Read: How to make a guy jealous and get his attention]

14. Talk about what you love

People glow when they talk about things they’re interested in. That engages men in a further conversation and possibly a date. So showing him your passionate self is actually very attractive.

You’re happy, sparkling, and glowing because you’re talking about the things you love doing. Do you like cooking? Talk about cooking. Do you like rollerblading? Talk about it!

Excite him with things that interest you, and he’ll be interested in trying them out with you. [Read: How men fall in love with a girl – the stages that really matter]

15. Be an interesting person

Being an interesting person will benefit you when learning how to be irresistible to men. As easy as it is to live a boring and dull life, you need a little variety every now and then. So change your routine a bit!

Don’t just stay at home all day and watch Netflix. Life is more than just routines. Try something different, have adventures, socialize, or try other hobbies! [Read: How to be more interesting and make everyone want to know you]

16. Be more social

It’s always attractive to see someone who’s being social and blending with any crowd. If you’re an introvert, this is your chance to get out of your comfort zone and socialize with people.

Showing off your conversation skills will be admirable to any guy, especially when you have a natural charisma and humor to draw others to you.

There’s no need to speak to every person in the room, but at least release your social butterfly every now and again, showing your charisma through your conversation skills. [Read: How to be more social – 19 ways to genuinely connect with others]

17. Set boundaries

In a way, this is connected to ignoring them for a bit. Having boundaries is impressive to a guy as it reflects your confidence and your ability to stick to your standards.

This means that no matter how much you like a guy, you won’t just give it to him quickly. Men highly respect women who have boundaries, so this is significant if you want to learn how to be irresistible to men. [Read: How to set personal boundaries & guide other people to respect it]

18. Take it slow

You will never be seen as irresistible by men if you move too fast, whether it’s revealing things about yourself too fast or engaging in physical intimacy right away.

So, take your time in getting to know him and don’t give everything way too fast. If you get into bed with him right away, he won’t be left with anything much to chase after *since you already gave everything*. [Read: How to take a relationship slow but not so slow that it ends]

19. Have a sense of humor

It’s always attractive to have a sense of humor and draw people to you by using it. Whether it’s cracking jokes, using one-liners, or whatever your humor might be, don’t be afraid to show this to others!

Your sense of humor might be the very thing that makes you irresistible to men.

So, how to be irresistible to men?

The key to being irresistible is to have the confidence to believe you actually are irresistible. Don’t doubt it even for a second, but embrace who you are. Also, be mysterious and play *a little* hard to get to grab their attention further.
