There are endless ways to improve yourself online and enhance the way others view you.
From just smiling more in pictures to posing in a certain superhero pose to make yourself feel confident and therefore more attractive to people, the list goes on for a while.
But now, there is something simpler for us lazy people who want to be more attractive to the people we dream about without making any effort from *trembling* Going the gym.
Well, the internet is covered too, which is pretty cool.
There’s nothing better than discovering that something you want to happen is really something without any extra work on your behalf, right?
Everyone is always looking for a way to make them look better, hotter, slimmer and happier.
The catch is that there are simple tricks you can use now to make yourself more physically attractive to the people around you without putting in much effort at all.
How is that? Well, it could be because you accidentally do things that actually make you look less attractive to others.
And stopping something you’re already guilty of when you know what to fix is much easier than trying to start something you’re not sure of for a less certain outcome.
So, are you interested in knowing what can make you better just by not doing it?
How are you accidentally sabotaging your attraction to those you care about?
Here are 8 things to stop doing if you want to be seen as more attractive:
1. Staying up late on the road
This is harder than it sounds because of course we love our sleep, but we also love staying up late and ignoring the bedtime we set for ourselves about three hours ago.
But how does the rest help you get hotter? Well, they don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing.
Back in 2010, researchers did what they do best and get people to rate the attractiveness of others.
They showed the participants pictures of people who had slept and had not slept for at least eight hours the night before.
Not only did the participants rated sleep-deprived souls as less hot, but they also indicated that they were also “less healthy and sad.”
So go to bed early tonight, because otherwise, you’ll come as a zombie (literally) to that hot guy in the new office you’ve been flirting with for weeks.
2. Being mean
A few years ago, Chinese researchers conducted a test, once again, by forming a panel of participants harshly and without remorse, judging pictures of people who wore their best “neutral” expressions.
They also pre-stored the images with the words “decent and honest” or “evil” and “mean.”
Not surprisingly, pictures of people with words indicating that they are kicking puppies were rated as the least attractive.
So, don’t be mean because the perception of “mean” is enough to make you appear less attractive to someone around you.
And nice guys? keep it up. Because kind is hotter than “evil”.
3. Your arms are sagging or knotted
There is such a thing as strength poses, which can make you feel extra confident and is great for making yourself more powerful before an interview or meeting if you want to show some confidence about yourself.
So, pushing your body out is fine, but pulling your body in has the opposite effect, it seems.
In 2016, researchers discovered that “systolic” body language makes your sex appeal run down the drain.
Burrowing your shoulders, slouching your body posture, or flexing your arms are all examples of “systolic” language that makes your hot factor drop.
The photos between people with systolic and opposite postures – expansive postures – were posted on a dating site, because the researchers aren’t shy.
But, interestingly, extended images were chosen more often than their opposite.
So listen to your mom and sit up straight. You may get an appointment.
4. Emphasis on it
compressed? Who’s uptight?
Well, according to a 2013 study, women with high levels of cortisone in their bodies — the little hormone that makes your heart race and your fear increases tenfold — were considered less attractive by heterosexual men.
The researchers suggested it’s probably because having lower levels of stress gives an allure to health and fertility, and cortisone counteracts those wonderful baby-making waves that send out.
Perhaps the researchers should have offered the chocolates and heard these poor ladies rather than making them more nervous by having a panel of men judge them.
5. Don’t show your feelings to your face
Yes, in ways of thinking, that doesn’t make much sense.
While men like women who smile more – like, the love It turns out that women do not feel the same way about their men.
I guess we want the sober flaming male whose smile seems rarer and more meaningful?
On the other hand, men don’t want their ladies to look too proud.
According to a 2011 study that men and women may have had each other’s throats due to the apparent sexism they were all displaying, researchers once again took out their judgmental little pictures and had everyone rate the attractiveness of the people inside of them. (Is that all researchers do?)
Women liked their men showing pride, not happiness, and men liked their women showing happiness, not pride.
6. Act so calm that you don’t laugh at people’s jokes (or tell your own).
2009 was the year we learned that laughter is important to getting to the next stage in a relationship.
Well, people with no sense of humor at all were completely unattractive. Likes, Completely unattractive.
The study conducted that year suggested that gender did not play a role at all.
It turns out that everyone hates someone who has no sense of humor at all, no matter who they are.
That kid who didn’t smile when I told him a joke? You secretly carry hate.
Therefore, when you meet people, pay attention to their level of humor and laugh at their jokes.
Try telling some about yourself, if you have one.
You don’t have to be a joker, but an absolute joke now and then can’t hurt.
7. Appearing lazy or unhelpful
Helping is actually quite exciting, according to a series of experiments conducted by brilliant researchers.
In a study based on asking people before and after a six-week archeology course to rate each other’s personality traits, those people who turned out to be lazy and unhelpful dug a hole deeper than people who were a little cooperative.
Even people who were previously rated “average” have won some fame in the attraction department after they proved willing to join in and help out.
So offer help when you can, especially to people you want to like because you may give yourself a big bump in the sexual factors.
For both men and women, this was a universal truth—we don’t like dishonesty.
In a 2006 study, participants read about both men and women and described them in either positive or negative ways, indicating whether or not they were smart; Independent or clingy honest or false litter bag.
And what was the result?
Of the three sets of criteria, only honesty had a substantial effect on how attractive people were.
This means that yes, people who lie all the time are literally unattractive to everyone around them.
