According to research, men are attracted to the same types of women, which means the dating curve can be a little lopsided at times. However, possessing the perfect physical attributes is only half of this success story. There are over eighteen ways to allure a man into emotional submission, and while they may require work, the results can be well worth the effort.
1. Seductress in Red
When a man is scouting a room full of women, the color red will stand out on his radar every time. While some would claim this is a byproduct of media conditioning, research suggests that to our primate brethren (baboons/chimpanzees), these blush tones signal the readiness to mate.
2. Background Color Vs. Communication
A background of blues, greens, and browns has been suggested to offer optimum communication between couples.
3. Kindred Ideas/Interests
They say opposites attract, but studies show men are drawn to women with similar ideas, political views, and interests (i.e. “Let me get this straight; you believe in aliens, teenage mutant ninja turtles, and crackers in bed? Okay; yeah, that sounds like me!”).
Instant chemistry is a dicey concept that requires the mixing of all the right hormones at the right time. Never-the-less, you can manufacturer a similar effect as attraction, by allowing fear to compensate for any lack of the real stuff. This doesn’t mean you have to go skydiving, as any old amusement park should do the trick.
The Vitamin E content of an avocado has been noted to boost a man’s state of arousal, making him prone to your seductive efforts.
Feeding a man chocolate, mimics the brain cocktail, phenyl ethylamine (PEA), which is the same chemical known for creating the sensation of falling in love.
7. Cry Baby
While most men may not be able to resist a woman with tears, research suggests if seduction is your goal, tears will also lower his mojo.
8. Mimic Good Conversation
Studies have looked at the conversation patterns (word choice, etc.) of couples, and the most matching styles seem to hit it off the best. You may think this symbolizes being made for each other. However, evidence suggests this is mostly due to mimicking each other.
9. Just Friends? Not
While women have an easier time maintaining friendships with guys, 57 percent of men report having feelings for their gal pals.
Men are drawn to familiarity, meaning that he will feel most connected with those he crosses paths with daily.
Centuries ago, men used to bash each other with tree branches to gain the rights to a woman. Today, men compete via humor. This is why laughing at a man’s stupid joke is like the sound of a Las Vegas jackpot.
12. Casual Sex Effects
Men crave the sexual sound effects of a woman who gasps and hums. While you may not want to perform a rendition of Meg Ryan’s orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally, a few subtle cues will pique his interest.
Men are drawn to vulnerable women because it strokes their ego. Men crave to be a woman’s protector. When a woman smiles, lifts one shoulder, and tilts her head to the side, she is showing one of the most vulnerable points on her body (neck). This says, I trust you. I’m interested, and I’m available.
14. Allure of the Unknown
Did you ever give a guy a note in grade school, telling him how much you liked him? How did that work out for you? Probably not good. Men prefer the challenge of the unknown. He may need to know you’re interested, but he’ll work harder if he thinks he’s only in the running for the grand prize (you).
15. Don’t Make Him Work Too Hard
If a woman requires too much work, a man will assume a woman is high maintenance. The best way to seduce a man, is to give the implication she is normally very difficult to impress. However, for him, it was relatively easy. This is known as, selectively, playing hard to get.
16. 21 Smile Salute
Eye contact is very important during the first few minutes of meeting someone. Studies suggest a man may need upwards of 21 bids for his attention before he’ll get the idea you’re interested.
Mirroring is very complimentary to men, and will build a sense of connection. The way it works, is if he sips his drink, you sip yours. If he digs in his nose, you… Well, there may be limitations, but the research is solid.
18. Time of the Month
Researchers have spent many long hours interviewing and watching female adult dancers, and have concluded the ones who made (they gave) the most money, were the ones who were ovulating. During that time of the month a woman will gain twice as much attention from men. Use it or lose it (someday), ladies!
