4 Tricks to Make You Instantly More Attractive

It’s easier than you may think to be attractive or popular. You don’t have to look like a model, crack jokes like a late-night comedian, or think like a rocket scientist. You just have to practice a few friendly habits.

1. Listen — and don’t interrupt.

Almost everybody wants to be heard and to be understood. If you can fill that need, then people will seek you out. Do what many fail to do by focusing completely on what the other person is saying. Don’t look at your phone, don’t get distracted by what is going on around you, and don’t lose focus by getting wrapped up in your own thoughts, rehearsing what you want to say next. Most of all, don’t interrupt other people while they are talking. Let them finish what they want to say. They will reward you with their appreciation and esteem. This is how you build popularity, one person at a time.

2. Give people the benefit of the doubt.

There are going to be things you like and things you dislike about every person. To increase your popularity, give people the benefit of the doubt when you meet them. Don’t jump to negative conclusions. Don’t focus on their annoying traits. Instead, look for the good that is inside every person. Search for the things you have in common and for the things you can admire about the other person. This is a simple attitude shift that can bring big rewards in good feelings and new friendships.

3. Smile and open up your posture.

A lot of communication between people is non-verbal. Uncross your arms and legs and let a warm, genuine smile light up your face, and you will send a powerful signal that you are friendly and approachable. Try it, and see how people will flock to be near you.

4. A simple greeting goes a long way.

Someone who is truly popular is liked not only by their friends, but also by almost everyone they come in contact with. To cultivate that kind of popularity, pay attention to all the people you come across in your day-to-day life. Acknowledge that they are there. A simple “good morning” to a bus driver, someone from another department who you pass in the office hall, or a cashier at the store will add a moment of brightness to their day, and they will be glad to see you again.

  1. Everything in the article is true! I am more of a psychiatrist than a bartender because I am so open, understanding and non judgemental. These people need somebody

  2. Angela Sparks: I would love to be your friend. I live in Las Vegas and will be 53 on Monday, July 17th. I would love to listen to what you have to say.

    I have friends of all ages and to be frank, age is just a number. I’m going to be 8 on Monday and you’re 15? You’re a teenager; are you getting into trouble? I am for sure.

    Let me know if you’d like a friend who listens and doesn’t take advantage of you. How can I?
    I’m in Vegas and you are wherever you are..

  3. Angela, your comment struck close to home. I am 68, also nice, a listener, and often taken advantage of by chatterboxes. I like a balanced conversation so often I say “Ok, stop and take a breath. It’s my turn to talk.” If they don’t get the hint eventually I avoid them.

  4. I am very friendly and let other people tell me their problems and thoughts but, they take advantage f that and never let me talk. Iam very caring about their feelings and don’t tell them about the way the are. Just about everyone I know does that and I’m getting tired of it, too. Iam 69 and the more Iam around these people the worse they get. Iam at the point thatI don’t want any friends.

    • I only share my problems with the supreme being and an occasional tree, so you would have no problems being my friend 😊
