Every woman wants to know how to impress a guy. You see, impressing men isn’t just about love and sex. Sure, it certainly can be, and odds are most of us think of that when we talk about impressing men.
But the fact of the matter is, men hold most of the cards in this world; it’s not fair but it is true, though things are certainly getting better. Men run most of the businesses, hire most of the employees, and even send out most of the loans. Some hold power that others can only dream of, to the point where it may seem impossible to ever truly impress them.
It is possible, however. It’s so possible that we’ve put together this guide to help you impress that special guy in your life, especially if he’s a romantic interest. Maybe he’s your potential boss at that dream job you’ve always wanted. Hey, we didn’t say this would be easy! But by following our tips below, you’re sure to have guys swooning, or at least ready to say hello and take notice.
Tip 1: Be Confident
Yes, it’s the number one tip in the world for just about anything! Yet it’s so true. The more confident you are, the more likely people are to take notice of you and think you’re pretty special. Confidence, at its core, comes from not being afraid of what others think of you. Seems counter-intuitive, right? If you’re trying to be confident so you can impress somebody, then obviously you care about what they think of you, right?
True and not true. Ultimately your confidence means that you don’t care if your plans to impress somebody go down in flames.
If you happen to have views or opinions that are unpopular, don’t be tempted to change them just because others don’t agree with you. How you see the world and things around you makes you who you are.
However, if you find that your views are incorrect, you should have the courage to change them rather than blindly defending your existing viewpoint. Confident people have no problems admitting when they’re wrong. On the contrary, it’s weaker people who defend a viewpoint to the last, usually because they’re afraid of being proved wrong.
We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. What men like in a woman is if you can defend your position and stick to your guns. Not so much if you’re demonstrably wrong and won’t admit it.
Confidence is about how quickly you can pull yourself up and get back into fighting form, ready to take on the next challenge, after being knocked down. Men love this. They love a person who isn’t easily defeated, especially in a work setting. In love, it shows that you’re someone they can stick by during the hard times.
Tip 2: Take Care Of Yourself
Really want to know how to impress a guy? Start by taking a simple shower. No, really! Practicing regular hygiene may seem like a common expectation these days, but it really isn’t. You’ll be amazed how many people aren’t, shall we say, taking care of themselves.
But it’s not just about showering and washing your hair. Taking care of yourself also means eating right, exercising regularly, and wearing clothing that is appropriate to the situation at hand. You don’t have to look like a supermodel to wow a guy. If you do, that’s probably a bonus, but the average person looks nothing like one. Still, if you can plainly show a guy that you care about your own well-being, then you’re on the right track. He’ll see that you’re someone who can take care of themselves, which means they don’t have to take care of you.
As an added bonus, taking care of yourself is something you should just be doing anyway. So even if you’re efforts to impress a guy fails, you will still have your health on your side.
Tip 3: Be Articulate And Have Well-Formed Opinions
It’s easy to say “be smart and show him how intelligent you are.” But that doesn’t really mean anything. Intelligence isn’t something you can broadcast without being considered conceited. Instead, you have to demonstrate your intelligence, and this can be done by showing how articulate you are in everyday situations.
Articulation comes from how well you express your ideas. It’s your body language, your word choice, and your tone as you speak to someone either on your level, above, or below. Odds are if you’re trying to impress a guy, you’re approaching him as an equal or as someone at a higher standing than you. In this case you want to be polite, maybe a bit jocular, and quick-witted.
If you’re having a conversation, your opinions are going to show through. There is no way to hide all of your opinions from one person while you are having any conversation. This is why it’s important to have formulated your opinions long before even having a conversation. Even if you do not agree, you can still impress a guy by backing up your opinions calmly by using facts and life experience. Odds are he’ll do that same.
Many guys are impressed by people who know what they’re about and aren’t afraid to back down – as long as they do so respectfully. You’re probably the same way. Ever heard of the phrase opposites attract? Many couples have found each other through differing opinions. But they liked that about one another. The same could happen to you!
While there is no one set way in knowing how to impress a guy, we hope that our three tips have helped put you in the right direction into impressing that guy of your dreams. Whether you are pursuing love, friendship, a partnership of another sort, or something work related, we’re pretty confident (see?) that you’ll be better prepared the next time you encounter him. Be confident. Be articulate. And be sure to take care of yourself so matter what happens.
