Over a week ago, I reached a moment every struggling freelance writer reaches and that was being found out that I was writing dating blogs at my full-time job. (Yup, if I’m not in the doghouse at home, I’m in it at work.)
However, since my boss started reading my blog, she is now hooked and told me that as long as I get my quota done that I could work on some blogs. (Thanks Nancy! )
So today, I thought I would touch on a subject that a lot of ladies like to constantly read about: HOW TO TURN ON MEN.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I value the little things over the flashy things. Brand names don’t mean much to me. I really couldn’t tell the difference between PRADA or JUSTFAB (a brand name I only know because my girlfriend constantly has boxes of these goddamn shoes shipped to her apartment.) I like my girls klutzy (Click HERE for details) and my low-maintenance Dream Girl Wishlist should prove that I’m not the shallow man I used to be.
I get a lot of email from women praising certain articles I write because it SEEMS like I stand out from other guys. The truth of the matter is that I really don’t. I just know how to vocalize our wants and needs without fear of looking like a p*ssy.
There are little things you ladies do that turn us men on in a big way and they have nothing to do with your hairstyles, pushup bras and fashion sense.
1. Petting A Big Dog On The Street
I love big ass dogs and I’m not going to lie, I usually have avoided women when I see them walking something down the street that looks like a rodent they are passing off as a dog. That’s why when I see a woman walking down the street and stopping to pet a massive mastiff without any fear, it has always caught my attention–in the good way.
2. Showing Off Your Inner Geek On A T-Shirt
In the past few years, I have been noticing that a lot of women are not afraid anymore of showcasing their inner geek and one of the most effective ways for a woman to turn a guy’s head is by wearing a cool as f*ck T-shirt. Two years ago, I asked out a woman on the subway just because she was wearing a Donna Hayward “Twin Peaks” T-shirt.
3. Reading Older Books
A woman who reads actual books instead of electronic devices, free METRO newspapers and magazines is attractive. However, a woman who reads an actual book that is not 50 Shades Of Grey or any other book that has Oprah’s seal of approval stamped on it is even sexier to boot.
4. Doing Something Uncharacteristic
We live in a society that makes first impressions by how someone looks and when women actually do something that contradicts the first impression it’s attention-grabbing. Over a year ago, I was on the subway going downtown to the overpriced Hard Rock Cafe in Toronto, when a classy, young woman sit across from me in the subway car. She looked very posh, quiet and elegant. It was then she took out a tall boy of Labatt 50 beer from her stylish purse and started sipping it in the cutest manner. It was so bizarre, yet it caught my attention in a good way.
5. Drinking Whiskey Instead Of Fruity Cocktails
One of the most effective ways of getting a guy’s attention in the bar is by ordering a hard drink instead of a fruity one. In my opinion, there is nothing sexier than watching an attractive woman enjoying a good scotch and if she’s smoking a Monte Cristo cigar to go with that scotch, that’s wifey material right there!
6. Handwriting Instead Of Typing
This may be a personal one for me since I am a writer but anytime I see a woman writing in a notebook or journal instead of typing on her laptop in a public place, I am always intrigued. It also gives you a mysterious quality to you and approaching you is usually easy since you give us a great opening line.
7. Having An Infectious Laugh And Smile
I have always told my lady friends that you can do far more with smile than you could ever do with makeup. Whenever I hear an infectious Neve Campbell-like guffaw with an infectious smile to match, I can’t help but smile and wink back at the girl. (Well, not now–because I have a girlfriend.
8. Going To Movies Solo
I love going to the movies by myself and when I see women doing it too, I think it’s extremely attractive. I’ve noticed in this day and age, a lot of women are too scared to be seen alone in public. When a woman can go to the movies by herself, (specifically a non-romantic one) then she is displaying that she is independent, confident and she can enjoy her own company—a great trait for men who are looking for non-clingers.
9. Pulling Off Big Headphones
A woman who can pull off wearing huge headphones is a huge turn on if only for the fact that I have heard a woman blaring Nicki Minaj, Rihanna or any other artist that is considered top 40 bullsh*t while listening to them. A woman with big headphones is generally a music aficionada and those are extremely rare these days believe it or not.
10. Rocking Your Natural Hair
Ladies, I know those clip-on extensions are all the rage right now, but let me tell you right now that men don’t particularly like them at all. It’s false advertising and they hide who you really are. That’s why I think it’s essential for women to embrace the hair that they were born with and you will attract a man who will see the REAL you guaranteed.
