Tired of envying those men who always seem to be surrounded by women? As you've probably noticed, looks often don't have much to do with it. Any man can become a "ladies man" if he has the characteristics and attitude that attract women. By flaunting your masculinity, developing a positive attitude, taking good care of yourself and acting like a gentleman, you will find that more and more women will gravitate towards you.
Flaunt your masculinity. Women perceive men with more "masculine" features -- physical strength, large chest and body, broad chin -- to be more attractive, according to a 1997 study conducted by researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, and published in Current Psychology. Take time to exercise regularly and work on developing that type of physique traditionally known as manly. Make sure that you always stand up tall and carry yourself with confidence.
Practice good self-care and take care of your image. Use clean, stylish and ironed clothes that accentuate your best features. Find your signature cologne and make sure that you always wear it when you will be spending time around the ladies.
Act like a gentleman around any woman. Charming "ladies men" are often a hit with the opposite sex because they know how to make women feel special. When you are talking to a woman, focus on what she is saying and make sure that she feels like she is being heard. Practice chivalrous acts for women, such as opening doors, giving up your seat on the subway or helping them carry their bags.
Keep a positive attitude. People who are pleasant and upbeat are more attractive and likable to the opposite sex. Make sure to smile often -- and bring on the funny -- when you are around women. Avoid constantly complaining about work. Instead, talk about your soccer league's latest victory or a beautiful sunrise you saw while jogging one morning. Encourage the ladies in your life to talk up the positive too. Women are more likely to gravitate toward men who make them feel happy, rather than those looking for a pity party.
