Just like guys, girls do everything in their power to get the attention of the opposite gender.
Surprisingly, some of their actions and behaviours can actually have the opposite effect! In fact, girls may not even realize that they do certain things that drive men away when all they’re really trying to do is draw guys toward them. Here are 5 surprising things guys find unattractive. So, if you’re a girl, you should take note of the following.
1. Wearing Too Much Makeup
Girls may think that loading up on foundation, concealer, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and blush makes them look their most attractive, but no one really loves the look of layers of makeup that can be scraped off like frosting on cake, a face that is two shades lighter (or darker) than the rest of the body, with spidery lashes, goopy lips, and slashes of blush and bronzer, just isn’t a good look on anyone.
2. Having Overly Styled Hair
While girls may spend a lot of time (and money) trying to perfect their hairstyles, it turns out that men aren’t attracted to overly done and processed hair. In fact, most men are drawn to women with shiny, full, healthy looking hair as opposed to hair that’s been overly styled and manipulated. Specifically, loose curls and wavy hair are considered more appealing to men than excessively flat-ironed, slick straight hair and complex hairstyles.
3. Playing Hard To Get
Playing hard to get is an easy way to strike out with a guy. While it’s true that men are drawn to women who are assertive individuals, it’s important to recognize that there’s a fine line between being independent and being unavailable. Playing games can make a girl seem highly immature and can give off the impression that she’s not yet ready, willing, or interested in getting to know a guy on a deeper and more meaningful level. And while she may assume that acting detached and aloof increases her allure, she’s actually coming across as uninterested, flaky, and just plain annoying.
4 Talking About Your Ex
Girls may think that badmouthing their ex around a new guy is a good idea, but this kind of negative behaviour actually makes them look bad. A girl’s intention may be to show that she’s totally over her ex, and to reassure the new guy that he has nothing to worry about. However, constantly criticizing ex-partners isn’t attractive. After all, not only does this type of behaviour make a girl come across as spiteful and immature, but her unrelenting fixation on her ex makes it seem as though she’s still harbouring feelings for him.
