4 Guys That Women Always Fall For
According to Men's Health, these are the four types of men that women always fall for.
I could see that. I always used to go for big guys who were "intelligence challenged." I think because they were safe, and I knew I wouldn't get my heart broken. I think we all should get our hearts broken at some point. The second time around, I fell for the good guy.
What's your "type?"
The Loud, Obnoxious Type
- Why she likes him: He's fun, outgoing, and he grabs her attention.
- What you can do: "A lot of men are intimidated, so they don't put themselves out there," says Patti Feinstein, relationship expert, and dating coach for various online dating sites. But that's the opposite of what you should be doing. Instead of hiding in the corner, approach a woman at a bar, says Feinstein. If you're intimidated at first, talk to a quiet woman, who might be more eager for conversation, she says.
The Artsy Hipster
- Why she likes him: He's sensitive, expressive, and good at giving compliments.
- What you can do: "Compliments go a long way," says Feinstein. "It shows that you pay attention and makes her feel valued." But women can see through false flattery. (Nice eyes? Try again!) "Compliment her clothes," says Feinstein. "It shows that you're paying attention and might even spark conversation."
The Fixer Upper
- Why she likes him: A broken man appeals to her maternal "help him" instinct.
- What you can do: "You need to show vulnerability without being an emotional victim, which is draining in the long-term," says Feinstein. Let her comfort you during physical pain instead, she says. Perfect opportunity: Ask her to rub your back after an intense shoulder workout.
The Type-A Successful Type
- Why she likes him: He's successful, confident, and high status.
- What you can do: You can show security without a Porsche. A recent University of Rochester study found that women are more attracted to men in red because it shows confidence and assertiveness. Not a fan of rouge? Wear a suit. "Women like a man with ambition and success -- even if you're not a millionaire," says Feinstein. "But talking about what you do might make it seem like you're trying too hard." Convey success with successful attire, says Feinstein. Try to meet her after work, when you're already in your best, office-appropriate apparel.
