Guys spend a lot of time trying to figure out what attracts women. Unfortunately a lot of them are still confused about what characteristics women find repulsive in men. You are more likely to have good relationships with the opposite sex once you understand the following 10 behaviors women find unattractive.
1. Having poor grooming and hygiene
Traits such as smelling bad, having bad breath, broken or stained teeth, botching your shave job, wearing wrinkled, unflattering clothing and uncleanliness in general are not sexy and will keep women completely away from you.
2. Lack of ambition
Women love being around men who have their own life, ambitions and goals. Looks can take you a long way, but once a conversation gets going and women realize you have no goals whatsoever or you have goals but no concrete plan to achieve them, they will become instantly turned off.
3. Being irresponsible
Women don’t want to invest their time and energy into guys who can’t take care of their business and will more than likely become just another burden in their lives. The last thing a woman wants to deal with is a man who can’t ever seem to hold down a job or pay his own bills.
4. Lack of confidence
Women want their men to lead the way, protect them and make them feel secure. Constantly listing all your faults, feeling sorry for yourself and complaining about your circumstances are sure fire ways to turn a woman off and make her stay away from you for good.
5. Having no sense of humour
Whether you realize it or not, humour is critical to your success with women. In fact, a sense of humour usually tops a woman’s attraction wish list and is one of the best ways to turn her on. No woman wants to be with a guy who can never laugh at himself, make a joke or find humour in a situation.
6. Men who give too many compliments
Women love compliments, but if you make too many or too big a compliment, most women won’t believe you and will wonder what you are trying to sell them.
7. Being a drunk
Nothing is less attractive to a woman than a guy who is a sloppy drunk! If you can’t maintain your alcohol consumption, the less likely you’ll be able to use good judgment and avoid saying really stupid things around women.
8. Having a beer belly
Your stomach is predominantly what a woman sees when she looks at you. The stomach is also the main source of the excess weight on a man, so if you have a saggy, protruding pot belly, get rid of it!
9. Being obsessed with sports
Most single women are not obsessed with sports and they don’t spend their weekends on the couch watching sports on TV. There’s nothing wrong with like sports; but, having an obsession with sports can adversely affect your dating life and could even cause a woman to dump you and find someone else who can fulfill her needs that you are neglecting.
10. Being too aggressive
Women don’t like it when a man they have just met insists on touching her too often. Women mostly prefer cool, calm, gentle and well-mannered men. When you are too aggressive with a woman, you creep her out, get pushed away and you get rejected.
