We've all seen it.
The guy who walks in. He sits down. The ladies go wild.
They go running just as fast as they can. All the while, you're sitting there wondering…
How can I be that guy?
I'm here to tell you that it's not only possible, but it's simple.
Today, we're going over 11 secret habits that drive women crazy! (in the best way).
You don’t have to read an entire book to get the best lessons from it.
How To Look Hot – Men's Secret Habits:
- Loosening the necktie
- Soft gaze
- Speaking passionately
- Rolling up your sleeves
- Signature scent
- Cleaning your nails daily
- Being a handyman
- All-around kindness
- Wear a plain, white t-shirt
- Rock the stubble
1. Loosening The Necktie
That's right – the simple act of loosening your tie can increase your attraction.
Specifically, women love to see this from a man arriving from a long day at work.
You can jump on Reddit and see the data for yourself. The ladies discussing it associate the look directly with sexual attraction…
They even talk about which ties are best to use in the act…
2. The Soft Gaze
We're often taught that hard stares and domination are the keys to manhood. Sometimes, though, a little tenderness goes a long way.
This was a highly upvoted preference. Women love it when they are doing something uninteresting and catch you watching them with “moon pool eyes.”
Think of it as gazing instead of staring. It's all about achieving those longing eyes. Once you do that, her heart will skip.
3. Speaking Passionately
This works well when a mutual attraction is already established.
It applies to both men and women. We can't help but love what our lovers love.
You've probably experienced this before – especially in the honeymoon phase. When she talks about anything, you can't help but encourage her.
Passion is energy. It fuels the people around you the more you show it.
Gents, the same goes for the ladies. Once they like you, they WANT to hear what you have to say.
As one article put it, passionate men appear set on their goals. They seem like they know what they want and nothing can stop them. THAT is sexy.
This doesn't mean to prattle on endlessly about the mundane. Once the conversation broaches your interests, though, commit!
4. Rolling Up Your Sleeves The RIGHT Way
I've mentioned this a few times before. Rolling up your sleeves is a sure way to increase your sex appeal.
It works whether you're wearing short or long sleeves.
When it comes to a long-sleeved shirt, rolling your sleeves to the elbow brings out the forearms. Doing a couple of rolls with a short-sleeved shirt accentuates the shoulders a bit more.
There are several sleeve rolls you can do, ranging from the master roll to the basic roll. You can learn about those through my article on rolling up shirt sleeves!
5. Signature Scent
You probably saw this coming – yes, you need a fragrance to win the day.
Is it a necessity? No. In fact, plenty of ladies are content with a man smelling like his soap.
Will it give you an incredible advantage? Hell yes.
Certain scents are scientifically proven to catch a woman's attention. These include strongly masculine fragrances – scents strong with musk, cedar, oud… any of these can work.
Stay away from citrus scents. They invigorate us guys, but women aren't phased by them.
Some secret habits are as simple as a spritz.
We won't go into the countless benefits of reading in this article.
What I will say is that it is a powerful matchmaking tool.
Let's take a survey from 2016 through the My Bae dating site. They found that 21% of matches had reading tags in common as opposed to 15% for other interests.
Literature brings people together. A man who read The Count of Monte Cristo, Dune, or Great Gatsby is infinitely more interesting than the man who likes Breaking Bad.
What if you don't have time to read, though? Fear not, you can still be as cultured as the rest. Services like Blinkist help you catch up with no time wasted!
As far as secret habits go, this one takes a little work – but the results are worth it.
7. Cleaning Your Nails Daily
Nails are among the first aspects of a man that women notice. Once again, the ladies of Reddit tell us exactly what they look for…
They not only indicate how good of a groomer you are in general, but they also show how suitable you are for the bedroom.
You'll be expected to perform with those fingers in private, gents – let's cut the bull.
Nail grooming should be a routine whether you're looking to impress or not. The region underneath your fingernails along house tens of thousands of bacteria. It's prudent to scrub your nails daily.
Don't forget clipping and shaping them on a weekly basis!
No one wants dirty fingertips going where they shouldn't.
8. Be A Handyman
Here's something more primordial…
Women are attracted to men who work with their hands – who can make basic fixes without needing help.
Some ladies even report attraction from tasks as simple as assembling IKEA furniture!
As one woman put it, competence and focus are sexy.
What does this mean? It's time to learn how to change a flat tire, how to anchor a bookcase to a wall, and how to fix a loose tile.
9. Be Kind
This may sound cheesy as far as “secret habits” go, but it holds true.
The ladies themselves know not to count themselves when gauging your manners. They know you're after something – a phone number, a good time, or a relationship.
Instead, they pay attention to how you treat others – people you don't have a vested interest in.
Some folks call this the waitress test, where the woman observes how the man treats wait staff.
Let's face it. If you're rude to staff, then it's a strong indicator of the kind of man you truly are.
10. Wear A Plain, White T-Shirt
Weirdly specific, right?
There is a science to back it.
The Telegraph published a 2013 study revealing that women found men in white t-shirts 12% more attractive on average.
White t-shirts are among the most versatile tools at your disposal. They not only look great, but they're attractive.
Why? Plain white tees create the illusion of broader shoulders and slimmer waists. This makes for that much sought-after V shape in the torso.
This is of most use to those of you who feel you are out of shape. Well-toned men saw only a marginal increase in attraction, while others had drastic results.
The key here if FIT, gentlemen. This only works if the T-shirt is the right size for your body type.
11. Rock The Stubble
Facial hair is in, and we got the studies to prove it.
Investigators from the Journal of Evolutionary Biology used CGI to morph different men's faces to feature various hairstyles.
Facial hair is considered universally hot by the ladies.
Long story short? Women judged heavy stubble to be immensely attractive for one-night-stands. Full beards were judged worthy of long term relationships.
Another survey from 2020 conveyed similar results. Short stubble received an 80% ranking, with 24% ranking it as the single most attractive facial hairstyle.
Either way, a well-groomed mane works in your favor.
Summary – Men's Secret Habits To Look Hot
Secret habits aren't hard to do. In fact, they're stupid-simple. The problem is that most guys never think to do them.
They don't offend and they seldom cost anything but time.
Get out there, gentlemen.
You don’t have to read an entire book to get the best lessons from it.
