I am currently 17 and a high school student in Australia. Now, I initially started going on this page just for fun, but I realized that so many people from all ages valued my opinions highly, and I have received quite a few direct messages from people mostly on the topic of if someone is interested in them or how to make them. I thought I'd share some of these tips with you guys.
I'm sorry I can't give tips on any sexuality other than straight since I am a straight person.
General Tips for Guys for attracting girls
Of course, these things are most applicable to people from about 16-30 years of age.
1. Please, do smell good!!
Buying a cologne and applying it is easy and can be cheap. I have a couple of high-end brands of cologne, but for a good cheap starter, I would recommend Nautica Voyage.
2. Girls for the most part in my experience can be initially attracted to a guy's physical appearance, so please do put effort into fashion.
Anyone saying physical appearance has no effect is probably lying to themselves. Although it is only a small part of why a woman might be attracted to you, it can't hurt looking nice.
General things I see young women look for in a guy that would likely be applicable in most situations
3. Confidence, decisiveness, spontaneous and fun...
...being able to make her feel safe, being nice (omg!), chivalry, treats her like an equal, can be her best friend as well as her partner.
4. Anyone claiming they are a "nice guy" or saying they are "stuck in the friend zone", I would like to say that's an excuse most of the time.
Being "nice" shouldn't be an attractive trait; everyone should be "nice". If a woman doesn't want to be with you, it's probably because you're likely a boring person, and sooner you realize, the better. She isn't with the "bad boy" because she's into douchebags; he's probably a bit more interesting than you are.
5. Take charge!
Don't make her decide everything especially when you are already in a relationship, she probably wants you to take the lead most of the time.
Please direct message me if you need some specific advice on a situation, I would likely be able to help if you and the other person are somewhere close to my age range. Now for anyone wondering about my credibility, as a person who in the past has been through many rejections, learned what to improve on from them, and then for a period of time never got rejected by any of the girls which I liked for a couple of years before my current relationship now, I feel I am at least somewhat credible.
Of course, every girl is different, this may not apply to some people. However, these are good general tips that I feel some guys forget all the time.
