There is a question that has been asked for centuries, what do women really want? Are there many habits that turn women on?
Others include – what do they really look for in a life partner? What makes them tick? Well, the answers to these questions are simple, but they may differ from one person to another, depending on who is answering.
When checking out a guy, women often look at the habits of a prospective date before making a decision. That said, there are manly habits that drive women crazy.
These are the habits of an alpha male. They come naturally to some men, while others may need some time to develop and perfect these habits.
Manly Habits That Will Earn You Points
– Dressing like a man: The first thing that a woman is going to see when she looks at you for the first time is your dress code. The color of your clothes, how well they fit and your overall style will affect how you are perceived.
If you are in your late twenties and you’re still wearing baggy jeans and over-sized t-shirts with huge logos and brightly colored shoes, you may lose some points.
While it may be good to have all sorts of clothes in your wardrobe, knowing when to put them on is important.
First and foremost, you should wear clothes that fit well. They should not be too baggy or too tight. Secondly, the clothes you wear should suit the occasion.
Do not wear jeans and a t-shirt to a wedding, or a suit and a neck tie to a night club, even if they fit exceptionally well. The colors also matter. Bright colors are not manly.
For instance, when you want to put on sneakers, consider wearing a white, black or brown pair of sneakers instead of a pair of yellow, pink or purple ones.
Consider buying a blazer, a pair of leather boots and clothes that don’t have huge logos printed on them.
– Drinking like a man: Most men love drinking beer. Fortunately, there are many types of beers, so any guy can easily find one that suits their taste.
If you are not a fan of beer, consider drinking a brandy or any other dark colored liquor.
When taking your poison, be sure to sip it straight from the bottle, in case of a beer, or a glass. Stay away from those cocktail glasses especially in the presence of women.
Drinking beer straight out of the can is also manly, but refrain from smashing the can on your forehead; it’s not cool anymore once you’re out of college :).
– Getting a haircut every week: Aside from the type of car a man drives, the clothes he wears and how he speaks, one other thing that defines a man is his haircut.
If you get a marine cut and let it grow for several months before getting another hair cut, you may be losing some points. Getting a haircut on a regular basis, but not too often, is one of the most popular manly habits.
However, this is not to say that you should get a salt and pepper hair cut this week, a marine cut in two weeks then shave your head bald after two weeks.
Your haircut should be consistent, so you should always go to the same barber once or twice a month. Consider getting old-school hair cuts instead of every new hairdo that comes up.
– Self improvement: Most people have ambitious goals in life. However, as time goes by, things change, and so should these goals.
Ambition and continuous self improvement are some of the most important manly habits that every guy should have. After all, there is nothing that women hate more than a man without ambition or vision.
When you make a promise, make sure you keep your word, and let that be how you build your reputation. Women love a guy who always tries to do better.
A person who is comfortable with the status quo, but always works to get something better is desirable to the womenfolk.
– Standing up for yourself: There is nothing as pathetic as dating a guy who cannot stand up for himself or his woman.
Walking away from a fight is sometimes a good idea, but you should do your best to defend your integrity as well as that of your girl. Whether it’s at the workplace, on the road, on a night out or at home, you should always stand up for yourself.
Try not to apologize too often, especially when you are not on the wrong. Sometimes its a good idea to let out the caveman inside you.
After the incident, you can always apologize to your date and tell her that you don’t know what came over you.
Most women get turned on by such incidents. That said, it is not manly to go around picking fights just to show how tough you are.
Other Habits that Turn Women on
After you get the attention of a girl and get her phone number, it is important that you call her to find out how she is doing. However, you should refrain from calling her several times a day.
It is unmanly to make several phone calls to a girl before the sun goes down. A single call in the evening to say good night is more than enough.
On the other hand, there are several manly habits that should be avoided. They include; leaving the toilet seat up, expecting to get laid after the first date, over-indulging in alcoholic drinks and failing to fulfill promises.
While exhibiting these manly habits may earn you some points, it is important to note that there are no guarantees.
Your confidence, mannerisms and physique are some of the things that may affect your success. This is because women have different needs and preferences.
While some may be attracted to guys with these habits, others just want a guy with a bulging wallet and an impressive career.
Whatever the case, exhibiting manly habits can boost your chances even if you cannot offer all that a girl may be looking for.
