Sometimes the girl puts herself out and that's how she gets guys, by being really loud, flirty, and teasy. (Though I don't know if she will be taken seriously in that situation). Maybe that is part of confidence?
But sometimes there are those girls who aren't that pretty but seem to get all the guys' attention. What is it about them?
Most Helpful Guy
this is usually for girls but I think it applies to guys as well. when there is a group of girls around one guy, a girl outside that group tends to think that the guy has something valuable, something that gets all those girls around him must be great. even if he's the only brother with 8 sisters and they all go out, it appears as though all those girls like him enough to hang out with only him. the same can go for women. if one girl has 5 guys around her and she's not even that great looking, they may just all be friends hanging out. with that many guys around one girl it would make me think she must have something special about her that that many guys like her.
for the second part. assume your walking through a mall alone. guys have nothing but your looks to judge you off of, so the saying dress to impress and look your best comes very strongly into play. as much as other people won't admit, the very first thing we look at is looks. not until we start talking and having a conversation can we judge personality.
third. if you want to have lots of guys around you you need to be outgoing, not necessarily flirty or slutty or loud. just be cool, don't think of the guy as a FWB or a potential boyfriend think of them as a friend and act that way with them. hell, you don't even have to be confident all you have to do is act like you don't care and not be shy. if your not shy then you'll get friends. talk to people you meet. talk to the guy in front of you buying groceries, the guy running next to you at the gym, who ever. be friendly, be cool, have fun, but above all don't be a snotty bitch, and also look good.
