Confidence & Stubble... What Really Turns A Girl On

For the most part, us women are simple creatures. All we want as human beings is to be loved and looked after. If you do that right, there may be some action to be had tonight. If you are at all curious what might make the girl you're interested in, interested in you, maybe think about these turn ons. Forget about the poetry, the pick up lines and being unbelievably good-looking. It's not all about looking sexy, but acting sexy. Although, being a physically attractive individual does help...of course...

1. Making dinner.

And not some pre-packaged microwaved crap. Seeing a man chop onions and fry off some meat makes us weak at the knees. They say the best way to a man's heart is through his stomach, well its the same for women except instead of the heart its vagina. Even if the food isn't great, it doesn't matter - though hopefully food-poisoning won't be a feature of the evening. It's the effort, though, of course, if it's amazing then forget about the dishes, someone else is getting worked on tonight.

2. Have man-stubble.

As opposed to a terrible bit of chin fluff that make you look like a molting chicken. Like three days worth, give or take. Don't me wrong, the clean shaven look has its moments but that stubble...oh my. Maybe it's an evolutionary thing? If a guy had a beard he has gone past and bested puberty and has enough testosterone to build a house and fight a bear? It's science.


3. Be interested in things.

Anything! If you don't have any interest outside of sex and drinking, you are a f*cking bore. No one is going to want to have frequent and great sex with you if you have no interests. If you're passionate about anything, that will make someone get passionate with you. This is especially true if you are into something like music or cooking because you can use your talents to woo women. Just over-do it and show off all the time. Plus, be interested in what she has to say too.

4. Have a sense of humour.

Being able to tell jokes and laugh at jokes. Very important. If you're going to be boring to talk to, you won't be able to stimulate any sort of interest in the bedroom. Sometimes bad jokes are the ice breaker that every conversation needs. So bad that they're good. That lets the girl know that you're fun-loving guy who doesn't mind making a fool of himself every now and then.


5. Have confidence.

But don't be a douche-bag. Be confident enough to have a conversation with us but don't be so confidence that you feel the need to tell us why we should be grateful that you're having a conversation with us. Be polite, so we don't want to punch you in the face. Offer to pay on the first date, don't go crazy and insist and get all pissed off when she offers. You can be treated every once in a while too. But offer, just in case.

6. Dress well.

I'm not saying you should wear a suit all the time, although men in suits is always great. Wear clothes that actually fit you. Wear trousers that are not too short or too baggy. If you're wearing a belt then your boxers should not be showing. That's what the belt is for. Don't wear socks with sandals. Don't tuck your trousers into your socks unless you are on a bike, and please remember to un tuck them after. I'm saying this for your own benefit, trust me.


7. No B.O.

Really if you have B.O. and you're already on a date with someone then you must be a wizard or something - or ridiculously hilarious. Clean yourself. No one is going to want to have sex with someone who reeks of sweat and shame and regret. Maybe invest in a tongue scraper or mouthwash, deodorant or a toothbrush - just sort yourself out. Wear clean underwear and socks. change them every day. Maybe do some laundry if you start running out.

8. Have clean living areas.

If you're bringing a potential bed buddy back to your place, please follow this advice: change your bed-sheets often; clean up the pee stains around your toilet and shit stains in the toilet; don't leave dirty dishes by the sink or by your bed for long enough to start a mould forest; and try to empty the rubbish bins every now and then. This will not only increase your likelihood of getting some, you'll also just be healthier and happier. Promise.


9. Holding our face when you kiss.

This is probably something that the movies have instilled in us. But still, so.freaking.hot. There's something really passionate and spine-tingling good about a guy cupping our faces as we kiss. It makes us feel wanted, and desired; which in turn makes us want to give in to our desires.

10. The sneaky look.

Like if you and a guy are laughing and joking around and he looks away for a second and then looks back up at you and smirks. Like he's seeing you for the first time! Total romantic cliche but it gets me every single time. It makes him appear kind of vulnerable and totally into whatever might be happening. Very effective when paired with a sneaky smirk or wink.
