If you’re a single woman that wants to know the secret key on how to attract a man, you’ve come to the right article. I know that there’s a lot of women who spend a lot of time trying to impress a man just to grab their attention. Plenty of women are hoping that a man will be attracted to them.

Thankfully, as a man, I’m here to help you out. This is not based on my perspectives, but also with other men who can relate to things that attract us. I’ve compiled the best list on what are the things that can attract a man to a woman. Let’s get started!

1. They are Attracted to a Woman Who Cooks Delicious Food

A lot of men are always hungry. It’s a blessing for us if there’s a woman who can cook delicious food for us. Men are simply attracted to a woman who knows how to cook delicious food because it would surely complete our day. Remember the famous quote;

“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”

Men are also attracted to a woman who cooks because we feel that you have superpowers. It’s a big WOW for us if you can lure us to the kitchen and serve us delicious food. We also feel like God sends you from the heavens above to relieve our stress by cooking for us.

For men, eating delicious food could get rid of all the tensions and stress we have at work. When a woman cooks for us, we are going to be attracted to them.

I can guarantee you, that a man will be happy if a woman will cook a portion of delicious food for them. Even baking delicious cupcakes or cookies can put a smile on a man’s face. If you already know how to cook delicious food, it won’t be hard for you.

If not, take some to train yourself in the kitchen. But don’t worry because this is not the only thing that can attract a man. There will be a lot more. So let’s keep reading.

2. A Woman who Like Extreme or Adventure Sports

Are you willing to climb a mountain? Or ride a dirt bike? Men always want to try new things and they want to experience the most extreme activities. That’s why most of us notice that after we’ve come back from an extreme pursuit, there’s a smile on our faces.

When you invite a man to an extreme or adventure sport, they will be amazed. Men will feel that you allotted time for them but in a different way. It’s different because experiencing extreme activities is not usual for them. That’s a different bonding compared to watching movies and sitting for 2 to 3 hours.

A woman that is already used to doing extreme sport is much more amazing because men feel that you are unique. You are strong enough to try those by yourself. That bold image that you are attracted to them.

In my experience, I met a woman who loves to do things that are not common for me. We ride a horse, climb a mountain, and we even went fishing. I can say that I was attracted to her.

3. Men are Attracted to a Smart and Successful Woman

We all know this right? Not just with men but also with women. It’s a huge turn-on for us to see a woman who is smart and successful. A woman that has a dream in life. Sometimes, men tend to realize what’s the use of beauty if that woman has no brain and no plans in life.

“As many as 71% of high-achieving men said, a woman’s educational or career success makes her more desirable as a wife.” -Christine Whelan

There are a lot of men out there that are willing to know all of your accomplishments. An intelligent and successful woman will always be interesting. Men are more inspired to be with that kind of woman. A man is willing to spend his life with a smart and successful woman because men like to talk and plan about interesting things.

But of course, I believe that a successful man can also attract a successful woman. It’s also the same for women that like successful men. Another thing is, not all men in this world like smart women because sometimes men feel that it can be a threat to their intelligence if they fight.

Don’t worry too much if you don’t feel that you are very smart because you don’t have to. In my opinion, as long as you are doing your best, that is enough. It’s just that when I did my survey by asking other men, some said they prefer a smart woman. It was some, but not all.

4. A Woman that is Real and Natural

When you are real and natural as a woman, you act more confident and men will notice that. A woman that is real and natural is a woman that lives with her values and is not affected but what other people say about her. Men are attracted to that type of woman. Men will be attracted to you because they feel that they will not be pressured when they are with you.

It takes a lot of courage when you go against the crowd and when you do that, a lot of men will see you as a unique woman. Every time I see a woman that is real to herself, they are the people who have more focus and direction in life. They are the ones who are likely to achieve their goals. Always remember to be who you are no matter what the challenges you faced in life, always remain constant because men are not only going to be attracted to you, but they may also fall in love.

5. They are Attracted to an Honest Woman

An honest woman can draw respect, and that is attractive. A man doesn’t want to spend his time with people who aren’t honest with him. When a man knows that you’re an honest woman, it’s appealing for them because they see you as their natural preference for a long-term relationship.

When you’re honest as a woman, you’re not just attractive, you are also trustworthy and reliable. When a man sees you as an honest person, they are less likely to evaluate your physical appearance because they are already attracted to your personality. When I did my survey, my friend told me;

“It is more fun to be with an honest woman because your conversation is much more meaningful.”

Always be honest not because you want to attract that man but also to live a fulfilling life. Honesty is also being real with yourself.

6. A Charismatic Woman

The charisma of a woman is very appealing for a man. The way you move, how approachable you are, and the confidence you bring makes you irresistible. Charismatic women are very rare nowadays. I can say that charismatic women are also charming. A charismatic woman causes a man to look at you too much. Charismatic women may not be overwhelming but they are a head-turner.

As far as I know, charisma is a skill and it’s a learned behavior. A piece of great news for women because you can train yourself on how to be charismatic. Be confident, smile regularly, and apply all the traits of a charismatic woman to attract the man that you dream of.

7. A Woman with Sense of Humor

A man can easily get attracted to a woman that has a sense of humor because the conversation feels alive. I’m a big fan of a woman that has a sense of humor because they make the world more fun. Men could appreciate women who have a sense of humor. I always notice that all time. Men spend most of their time hanging out with them.

Let’s say you’re a successful woman and have a sense of humor, it’s a big bonus for you. Men feel that you are a suitable mate when you make them laugh. Men prefer to be with you because of comfortability. We live in a stressful world, men are always busy with their work or career. Making them laugh will likely decrease their stress and somehow men will appreciate you for doing that.

Contrary to popular opinion, some men don’t like funny women. I don’t know the exact reason why but maybe their life is just serious. But one thing is for sure, most men like a woman that has a sense of humor.

8. The Nice Smell of a Woman

The odor of a woman can make a man go wild. Surely, you want to impress him by using the best perfume you have in your cabinet. We are attracted to scents because there’s this what we called pheromones or chemical messengers. So bathe yourself with a perfume that can attract the man that you like.

In my sense of smell, the scents that I loved to smell from a woman are lavender, jasmine, floral scents, and many more. As long as it is pleasing to the nose. If you’re not a fan of using perfume, just flex your natural odor. Just make sure to have a nice smell because it will be a huge turn-off if you don’t smell good.

The smell plays a big role in whether a man feels attracted to you or not. Once a man will be attracted to your scent, they will surely remember who you are.

Not just by wearing perfume, but also consider the smell of your hair. There’s a chance that you might pass through him, you can wave your fragrant hair so he will notice and be attracted to it. So look for the perfect scent of shampoo.

9. The Beautiful Eyes of a Woman

In a survey, 70% of men pay attention to a woman’s eyes. They see it as a magnet if they will be attracted to it or not. You may hear of the famous quote, “The eyes are the windows of the soul.”

A man called tell something about you by just looking at your own eyes. It’s quite amazing but I can also relate because somehow I can judge a person through his eyes. If her eyes look gentle and sweet, I can say that she’s a nice person. But that’s not exactly true, I just based it on my judgment.

Men can complement a women’s eyes if he’s attracted to it. To make your eyes look attractive, the right make-up will be a great help. Make it more appealing in the eyes of men so that they will be attracted to you. Give confidence in bringing your eyes and try to keep eye contact with him, just for a few seconds.
