Have you ever wondered what it is about certain women that drive men crazy?
Or why some women have men hanging on their every word whether she’s available and interested or not?
They’re not always the prettiest women in the room, and they don’t necessarily have wads of cash, super exciting careers, or famous friends, but men flock to them like moths to a flame.
So what is it about these women?
What makes a woman irresistible to men?
13 Ways To Be Irresistible To Men
A man may initially notice your physical appearance, but it isn’t the only thing that draws him to you. What men find irresistible is more about how you present yourself, the way you communicate, and your attitude.
1. Make good eye contact.
Looking a man in the eyes showcases confidence, respect, and interest. On the other hand, avoiding eye contact can make you appear shy, uninterested, or even cold.
Maintaining eye contact can make others comfortable and create a powerful connection, but don’t stare long enough to make it uncomfortable.
Smile while holding his gaze for a few seconds before looking away, perhaps to reach for your drink or adjust your jewelry.
2. Show healthy self-confidence.
If you want men to find you irresistible, develop unwavering confidence in yourself and your abilities.
It doesn’t matter if you’re tall or short, thin or curvy, or have long hair, short hair, or no hair. It also doesn’t matter what you do for a living, where you live, what kind of car you drive, or how expensive your clothes are.
It shows when you treat yourself with love and respect and believe in yourself. What’s more is it makes others respect, love, and believe in you, too.
3. Enjoy yourself.
What kind of people are more fun to be around? Stiff, serious folks who are easily offended and find little humor in anything?
Or those who can laugh, relax, and enjoy themselves despite all the unpleasant things going on in the world?
You don’t have to avoid more serious issues, but make time to be lighthearted and enjoy yourself.
Share fun or funny situations. Laugh at his jokes (as long as they’re funny.)
Women who are fun to be around are irresistible.
4. Be honest and direct.
Men don’t like to guess what you think or how you feel. They don’t appreciate mind games or dishonesty, and they don’t want to be jerked around.
If you like him, tell him. If he does something to upset you, tell him. If you disagree with his opinion, tell him.
Women who are honest and direct in a mature and respectful (rather than a rude or closed-minded) way are irresistible.
5. Treat others with respect.
Irresistible women are always polite and respectful.
Whether they’re interacting with a potential client or ordering a drink at the bar, they’re just simply nice. They have good manners, refrain from judging others or putting them down, and treat everyone equally regardless of how they look, how much money they make, or where they live.
They work to build others up and avoid bringing them down. They even handle disagreements maturely.
6. Put your best foot forward.
You don’t have to dress up or have perfect make-up to be irresistible.
Men love women who care for themselves and make themselves look nice, whether they’re attending a black-tie affair or running errands around town.
You don’t have to spend hours dolling yourself up or pretending to be someone you’re not, but basic personal hygiene and clean, wrinkle-free clothes go a long way.
You can be comfortable and presentable at the same time. Bonus points if you always smell incredible.
7. Stand firm in your beliefs.
There’s something irresistible about a woman who knows what she believes, regardless of what others say and do.
Not that she doesn’t change her mind about important things after being presented with a strong case (because being open-minded or admitting when you’re wrong are equally irresistible), but she doesn’t let others change her opinion for her.
Even when everyone else holds a different view, she maintains hers without embarrassment or belittling others.

8. Have a positive outlook.
Irresistible women tend to find the positive in a situation– or at least find positive ways to respond.
That doesn’t mean they don’t have bad moods or pretend everything is fine when it’s not (that’s toxic!). But they don’t typically complain or dwell on the negative.
They acknowledge when something goes wrong and deal with the outcome maturely without placing blame or bringing everyone down.
Irresistible women have their share of problems, but they’re able to maintain a glass-half-full perspective.
9. Maintain a little mystery.
Many men can’t resist an intriguing puzzle. The point isn’t secrecy or deceit. Instead, it’s letting him draw his own conclusions about certain aspects of you until a later date. You don’t need to share too much, too soon.
Drop nuggets of information that show how interesting you are without spilling all the details upfront. Refrain from sharing everything about the trip you took last month or your exact plans for your upcoming weekend getaway.
Keep him guessing and allow his imagination to fill in the blanks.
10. Be independent and self-reliant.
There’s something irresistible about women who are passionate about something and keep up with it no matter what.
They don’t cancel plans with others or themselves to make room for a guy, and their interests don’t depend on those around them. They know who they are, like who they are, and are unapologetic about it.
Women who fill their lives with people and activities are happier – and more irresistible! A woman who can take care of herself but still enjoys her guy’s support is totally sexy.
11. Presence is important.
He likes being around women who are fully present – and not distracted or in their heads. Be in the moment with your full attention to avoid coming across as bored or aloof.
Engage in conversation and practice active listening. Put your phone away and tune out others around you when talking to your guy. Ask intriguing questions and share your opinions.
Find ways to focus on your man and what you’re doing together rather than allowing your thoughts or other distractions to pull you away.
12. Use inviting body language.
It’s not always the things you say that matter but how you say them and present yourself.
Maintain a relaxed, open posture, and smile when appropriate. Turn your body toward your guy during a conversation, nod to show understanding, and make eye contact.
Speak clearly and with confidence. Touch his arm occasionally in a nonsexual way while laughing at a joke. Show genuine interest using your facial expressions and body positioning to be irresistible to him.
13. Be decisive.
Men love women who can make a freaking decision already.
Chances are you do have an opinion on what to eat or where to go. You don’t have to make hasty or rash decisions or insist everything goes your way, but don’t pretend you don’t care when you do. Learn to make informed decisions quickly and confidently.
Assertive women are easier to be around than passive or aggressive ones. If he doesn’t like your decision or wants something different, you can certainly find a compromise.
