If you want to know how to impress a man today, just by being yourself, make him commit to a serious relationship, or run away if he’s not worth it, keep reading. All you need is here!
Men are simple!
We, women, think they are not, but yeah, they are!
By saying this, I mean it in the most genuine and respectful possible way. I love my partner, and I could easily say that our connection went through the roof when I started accepting that what he says is what he thinks.
The most common answer every guy gave me after I’ve asked “How could a woman impress a man?” was this:
“By being yourself!”
How confusing does that sound, huh?
Moreover, aren’t you fed up with this answer? What does “being yourself” mean at all?
If you were able to impress a guy by being yourself, you’d have a queue in front of your door, wouldn’t you?
If you did have a queue, you wouldn’t read this post. Therefore, I assume you’re still just guessing on how to charm the guy you like.
I’m here to give you the tricks on how to impress him and stay true to yourself at the same time.
Best Ways To Impress A Man
I did a little bit of digging on the topic, and I’ve selected the most upvoted ways to impress a guy. They are only 12 and will shock you with their accuracy and simplicity. Ready? Let’s do this!
1. Confidence is Everything In Men’s Eyes
You will be surprised to know that many men dream of having a woman walk up to them and start a conversation first.
I know, we believe guys are supposed to take the lead, and that’s just fine. But what if you approached him first? Men often feel insecure and shy away from talking to a woman they like, because of the fear of rejection. Of course, that’s his problem, but if you like him as much as he likes you, that becomes your problem as well.
No, I am not giving you to learn to pick up lines, but starting a simple conversation with the man you like, and seeing how things go from there is a no-brainer.
This speaks of confidence, and self-esteem which is always so attractive.
2. Wit and Intelligence
Many men would tell you that they get goosebumps when they meet a woman who is intelligent and witty at the same time.
She would speak clearly and confidently about the things that matter to her. She would say the perfect joke at the perfect moment, and wouldn’t mind getting into a serious discussion with anyone.
If you just recognized yourself here, you’ve got one of the greatest traits to impress any man around you (or at least those who aren’t afraid of smart girls).
Instead of hiding these qualities of yours, just let them shine, the right guy will quickly catch up with you.
3. Men Love It When You Have Passion
Still wonder how to attract him? How about taking your eyes away from him and focusing on your own stuff? I am not joking.
Most men say that one of the most attractive and impressive things about a woman is when she has a burning passion for something. She would get emerged into that one thing and the flame of that passion would reach everyone around her, including the right guy.
So, if you already are passionate about something, don’t be afraid to admit it, to talk about it, to show it off. It will help him understand you better and will also give him a reason to approach you. That’s exactly what you wished for, right?
4. A Man is Impressed By You When You Don’t Live Someone Else’s Life
I know I must expand on this one a lot.
Too many of us are living our lives according to other people’s expectations. We keep our opinions to ourselves so we don’t offend someone or get into a conflict.
However, men get positively triggered when you stand up for yourself and set boundaries.
Steve Harvey talks a lot about this in his bestseller. He lets women know that every man is going to test their boundaries and if you allow them to step over those boundaries, they will do it again and again.
Self-respect, setting boundaries, and keeping your wellbeing as a priority is insanely attractive in guys’ eyes.
A man who respects you will love you in a completely different way than a man who doesn’t care about your boundaries because you already let him step over them.
And that goes for other people around you. Any man will be impressed to know that you follow your own unique path and have no time to live up to someone else’s expectations.
Yes, that might sound a little bit like a turn-off to some men, but you don’t need those in your life. You need a person who will be supportive and encouraging when you follow your dreams.
5. Be Unique
Of course, you know that! But do you tend to adjust your behavior according to others’ moods? Do you love following the trends and doing what social media tells you to do? Do you adopt the “official” point of view of some topics?
Being unique makes you “one and only”. Embrace it and the guy you like will embrace it too.
6. Be Independent
You know how we, women, usually say that we want to be our men’s partners and not mothers. We refuse to become the “parent” in the house and to be always responsible for everything around us. We are usually searching for a guy who is independent, has his life together, and is a grown adult on all levels.
Guess what! Men say that this is equally impressive in a woman too. Being able to look after yourself, being independent, having a job, a place to call home, and having your life together is applaudable and attractive.
Women don’t like taking a man under their wing, and it goes both ways.
Now, don’t misunderstand this one. Being independent doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect to count on him for some things. It just means that you need a partner and not a savior.
And now is the time when things get tricky because men also love it when you…
7. Make Them Your Hero
I write this point straight after the “independence” one because there is a difference between a woman who can look after herself and a woman who knows how to make a man feel like her hero (not a savior).
The women who always seem to have a queue of men ready to do everything for them are those who know how to trigger a man’s hero instinct. You can do that too and once you succeed, the guy will be all yours.
8. Easy-To-Talk To
You know those unapproachable women who look like they own half of the town and nobody should dare talk to them? They are like ice queens – beautiful but cold and no one actually wants to interact with them.
Most men will just ignore such behavior in a woman. Guys are normal human beings craving for a conversation where both parts are active and participate in the discussion. Being easy to talk to and looking approachable is so crucial in getting a man’s attention.
No man is going to come to you and ask you on a date if he feels like you will turn him down or act like he isn’t worth the effort.
9. Dress to Impress
Physical attraction is a crucial point for every man out there…
Why wouldn’t he want the woman he’s dating to look good?
Dress to impress is tricky, though. Following trends, shortening skirts and inappropriate clothes will give the wrong impression.
It might sound harsh, but never follow the trends!
Instead, go on and choose clothes that fit your personality, not his.
Please don’t pick the little black dress because he would be amazed by your legs. Choose it because it’s appropriate for where you go and it’s comfortable enough to forget you wear it. If you feel uncomfortable wearing something and arrange the dress three times per minute, you lose your charm.
For our first date with my fiancee, we chose to go to a coffee place. I was in jeans and a black blouse, and I almost didn’t have makeup. However, I couldn’t care less about it. I was myself. It worked. I know many other times when I was dressing to impress men, and felt uncomfortable with my choices.
Of course, if we were to go to a restaurant I would probably wear trousers or a skirt instead of jeans, but I wouldn’t put on anything unless it’s part of my dressing routine.
The most important thing about “dress to impress a man” is to wear clothes that feel right for you, have a nice haircut, and smell good. That’s all! Everything else is additional, and unless you’d do it for the rest of your life, I wouldn’t advise you to do it for this specific day.
10. Laugh at yourself
A pinch of self-irony and the capability of laughing at your own silliness shows confidence and self-acceptance.
Men are so overwhelmed with low-self-esteemed girls who try to cover every inch of their face, body, and personality they don’t like.
No one is perfect, and being comfortable with it is the most attractive thing nowadays.
I mean it.
If you want to impress a man, then don’t be perfect!
Don’t be the doll you think every man would want. The guy who will commit to a serious relationship doesn’t expect you to be perfect. He needs you to be real and comfortable with yourself. This would mean you would be comfortable with his imperfections as well.
Don’t be afraid to be slightly ironic, to show a unique perception of reality, and allow your knowledge to brighten up the conversation. Your wit could awe the other person; use it.
11. Show him you don’t need him
How to impress a man you want in your life if you don’t show him you need him?
First of all, you don’t need him!
I mean, really!
You don’t need anyone to be happy. If you feel lonely, depressed, and you hope that a life partner could fix this, I’m about to disappoint you – He Won’t!
Been there, done that!
I was jumping from one ridiculous relationship to another, searching for someone to be my other half. And then I realized! I am not a half to need another half. I am a perfectly imperfect human being with dreams, goals, life, friends, and a unique personality no one else could copy.
You would be happy to have someone to share your life with, but you don’t need anyone to keep living your life fully.
Do you agree with that?
Shifting the perspective in the right direction will help you understand showing a man you don’t need him has nothing to do with ignoring him, showing off, or being arrogant when you talk.
I met my fiancee two months after I decided I don’t need anyone else to start being happy. If happiness is a feeling, I am the only master of my feelings. Therefore, I stopped expecting anyone else so I could start feeling happy. I simply listed the things I’d like to do with my life, I started doing them, and my life went in the most wonderful direction ever. I know it sounds way too simple, but it worked for me, and let me tell you – doing it is everything else but simple.
I know, when women have a crush on someone, they put aside everything else about their life and spend a huge amount of time thinking about him.
They imagine how he would act with them, look through his social media posts, talk with friends about him, dream about him… The whole focus shifts on someone who hasn’t proved he deserves this focus. Life goes on with or without this specific man. Live the days for yourself, not for a stranger.
12. Show a genuine interest in him
As I said, the fact you don’t need him doesn’t mean you ignore him!
Once you have the chance to talk to the man you like, use it. Take full advantage of every opportunity to get to know him better. After all, he might turn out to be exactly what you want in your life.
Show genuine interest in the things you have in common. Start with the topics you share knowledge on, and let it flow from there.
If he has a hobby you admire, ask him about it.
Use his knowledge of making a choice you need help with. Men love it when a woman needs his opinion or help to make a decision. If you want to know how to impress a guy – find something he could help you with.
Conclusion on Ways To Impress a Man
Impressing a man you like doesn’t have to be hard and you shouldn’t feel like you “work for it”. Being yourself means exactly that, but it also means that you must show yourself to him.
Not being afraid to start a conversation and acting confident when it comes to topics you have a strong opinion about, is crucial. Never change your personality to fit his expectations, set your boundaries, and be you – smart and happy confident woman. That is more than enough to impress the man and to get him by your side.
