It takes more than physical attraction alone to maintain a long-term relationship. However, how physically compatible a couple is can play an important role in the success of a relationship. If you want to make yourself physically attractive to one guy in particular, you first need to understand that his idea of attractive may be different from your own. While he may not find you instantly irresistible, there are subtle changes you can make in order to improve your physical attractiveness in general.
Go natural if your man enjoys less made-up women. Less is definitely more when it comes to wearing makeup. While it may cover your spots and other embarrassing blemishes, too much makeup will hide your natural beauty. Many men find a heavily made up woman off-putting. Use a small amount of concealer, mascara and lip gloss and let your face do the rest.
Use your common sense when choosing what to wear. Avoid low-cut and overly revealing clothing. Letting it all hang out may get you attention but it will almost certainly be the wrong kind. Instead, choose an outfit you find comfortable, flattering to your body shape and one that is a reflection of your personal style.
Make an effort to smile. Someone who smiles frequently is much more attractive to others than someone who frowns. Do not force your smile; a false smile is often obvious to others and will give the impression that you are false. Smiles make a difference to the overall appearance of your face. This is important as many people judge how physically attractive a person is by her face.
Act confident even if you do not feel it. Confidence can affect everything from the way you talk to others to the way you walk, therefore playing an important part in appearing attractive. Many men are attracted to confident women. However, there is a fine line between confidence and arrogance, so make sure you achieve the right balance.
Make the most of what you have by highlighting your best quality. If you regularly receive compliments on your skin tone, avoid wearing too much concealer. If people have always admired your hair, style it to show it off to the maximum. Whatever you believe are your best physical qualities, do not be afraid to make the most of them.
