10 Wrong things women do to attract men that don’t really work

When a girl has a crush and she’s desperate for a guy to notice her, she can sometimes find that she is trying too hard and by doing this, she pushes the man away, instead of attracting him. Well, some things work, while others don’t, and some things backfire completely! Here are some of the more common things that women do to attract men that are not going to work:

1. Being all silly and giggly

The cute bimbo thing is dead! Men are more attracted to intelligence and confidence, than they are to giggling coyness. They like someone who can laugh and is fun to be with, but too much of it, and you’ll push all the good guys away.

2.  Way too much makeup

One of the most common mistakes that women make is overdoing the makeup. If it looks like it’s fake, then a guy’s not going to like it. That goes equally for makeup, hair, nails and tan too. Your natural beauty will get his attention far quicker, so let it shine!

3. Picky eaters

A girl wants to be dainty and ladylike when she eats but, actually, a guy would rather see a girl tuck into her food and enjoy it. Ok, so they don’t want to look up and watch you eat your twelfth hot dog, but a healthy appetite would be good.

4. Trying to keep up with the alcohol consumption

A man is not going to think well of a girl who can outdrink him and even less of a girl that gets drunk. This is one area where a ladylike moderation will work, so keep the wine consumption to a glass or two. He’ll be more impressed by self-control, than a lack of it.

5. Trying to be one of the boys

If he wanted a night with the boys’ he’d gone out with his friends. Men still like their girls to be girls, so keep the risqué jokes and bad language down; he’d rather not hear it from his lady.

6. Gushing compliments

Guys like to be complimented, but only in moderation. It will only come across as being false, if you make too many compliments or make them too obvious. If you over-compliment him, then he will stop believing it anyway.

7. Inappropriate talk

Of course, most guys are attracted by the suggestive talk, but too much too soon and you will put them off. Men are very quick to judge girls, especially when a girl behaves as being ‘too easy’. They may take you up on the offer, but they are unlikely to take you seriously afterwards.

8. Agreeing with his every word

Some girls think that agreeing with everything a guy says is a guaranteed way to his heart, but a guy would far rather meet a girl who knows her own mind and has her own opinion on things. A girl who has her own opinions and knows what she wants is far more attractive, than a ‘yes’ girl.

9. Using cute names for him

Calling him a sweetie pie or cute little teddy bear is not going to impress him, especially if you do it in public. The one thing you must never do is make a man look stupid or unmanly in a public place, even when you are trying to compliment him.

10. Smothering him

You’ve probably seen girls who are all over a man, trying to get his attention. If you have, then you’ve probably also seen the look of irritation on the man’s face! Guys don’t like to be smothered, so give him a chance to breathe and let him get to know you properly.

    I learned this the hard way: Ease up on the scent! In fact, best not to wear any at all the first time out. Who knows if the guy might have a fragrance allergy? the last memory you need him to have of you is being the gal who nearly asphyxiated him lol Seriously though skip the perfume. Just be your own well groomed unscented self.

    Another thing is be yourself! If a guy falls for a fake you you’re stuck acting like that!!

    One act that is often portrayed by most women but omitted in most discourse is the fact that women play the hard to get game longer than usual and this comes around to backfire. Every man is different, so is his temperament. Take a two step forward and one step backward trick rather than a no step forward and expecting him to move the two of you forward. He is no superman but rather a kryptonite man.
