Who doesn’t want to be attractive? But to be attractive is not only a physical trait; it also has to do a lot with your personality and unless there is something very alluring about your personality, no amount of new clothes and perfumes can make you stand out. People don’t seem to realise this and behave like a**holes wearing branded clothes and expect people to like them.
Here are 10 characteristics about someone that makes him/her attractive to others. And the best part?
1. A good sense of humour
A good sense of humour is always desirable. You see the ‘good’ I used? That’s because sometimes people can’t try to be humorous in the most wrong time causing disgust rather than attraction. Know when and where you should be humourous. A sense of humour during a funeral cannot be termed a ‘good’ sense of humour. Draw your line.
We all must have heard the saying that ‘cleanliness is next to godliness’. While it seems like an insignificant attribute to possess, cleanliness can be breathtaking. It represents your thoughts and your personality. Nothing is more attractive than watching a clean looking guy picking up the piece of paper that might have fallen accidentally on the ground and putting it in the bin.
3. Acknowledging presence
Not returning someone’s ‘hi’ with a ‘hello’ does not only betray your poor manners, it also makes you instantly repulsive. Try to return every greeting. Be a gentle person.
4. Have a positive attitude
In a world full of pessimistic people and cynics, having an optimistic outlook about life is the most desiring. It shows that you are not afraid of the circumstances and have the courage to take on any situation. Having a pessimistic approach bares your weakness and inability. Nobody is attracted to someone who plays a victim of situation. Pessimism makes you ordinary.
5. Have an opinion
Don’t be that person who has no opinion. Watch news, be aware of the world affairs. Though you might not be making any difference, still always have an opinion about world developments. It makes you a better person and an attractive person. No one likes to be with someone who has no opinion and needs others to tell them always what they should think and do.
6. Be kind
Be kind to everyone regardless of age, sex, race, gender. Kindness, according to this article on Huffington Post, makes people more attractive. It costs nothing to be a little kind to others. Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Do I need to say more? Who doesn’t love someone who is intelligent? Someone who is interesting to talk to and has a wide range of topics to talk about so that they are never stuck in those awkward silences? Ability to make interesting conversations makes you attractive almost instantly.
Money has its fair share of blames. It is one thing that has been blamed for almost everything that the world has suffered. It is called the root of all evils. And though there are people out there who can claim without a second thought that to them money comes second, let me tell you, those are not absolute truths. Money can influence everything about you. If you are rich enough, people will flock around you most of the time.
9. Have an ambition
An ambition gives you stability and the ability to stand against all odds. Have an ambition. No matter how odd or small or big that is. Chase something. You will have something to look ahead in life and you will have something to talk about when you come back home. Nobody loves philosophies without realism. Ambitions gives you realism and an advantage against those who are slack and boring.
Read something. Read anything. Reading makes you not only wise and empathetic, it also makes you someone who can converse effectively. Reading can so much benefit you and improve your personality that you might not imagine. It can change your life upside down and make you insanely tempting.
