Men notice a lot in a woman and it may not be all the things we automatically think of. If you are wondering why men are not attracted to you despite you being the definition of Ms. Perfect with the right clothes and perfect hairstyle, it could be you are doing something men find unattractive. The reasons could surprise you!
If you are a single lady planning to step into the dating game or are having a hard time finding a man, check the list below to read about the top 20 things men find unattractive in a woman.
#1. Too much makeup
Do not overdo your makeup. While it is important to look presentable, stay true to your original looks. You are beautiful exactly the way you are, without the extra shimmer from over-the-counter beauty brands. The best thing you can do to look beautiful is to be healthy and allow your true personality to shine. If you like makeup, you can always do it for yourself but in this case, remember, less is more.
#2. Poor personal hygiene
Ladies, it is important to take care of your personal hygiene. It is true for both men and womenㅡpoor personal hygiene is a definite turn off.
#3. Too much perfume
Do not put on too much perfume and let it linger in your personal space. For a man, too much of perfume can actually be quite an assault on the nose. Limit your usage of perfumes. No matter how expensive or cheap, use a few drops on certain points only. A little goes a long way.
Having a strong opinion and being confident is great but, know where to draw the line because confidence, when dealt in high doses, makes a person arrogantㅡsomething no one appreciates. Be proud of your accomplishments but, do not show off. Instead, be humble and feel comfortable in your own skin.
#5. Bad mouthing the ex-boyfriend
Maybe your previous relationship ended badly. Maybe it’s your ex’s fault that you broke up. However, that’s a personal matter and you shouldn’t go bad-mouthing your ex to the world. Displaying all this negative behavior actually makes YOU look bad instead. It also pushes you away from any potential love interestsㅡno one wants to be the subject of hateful words.
#6. Being overly needy
While men like to feel needed, they are not interested in the drama where you play the role of damsel in distress. It makes you appear as someone desperate who is unable to handle her own situation. Instead, opt for being self-sufficient with a healthy amount of self-esteem.
#7. Being extra demanding
When you demand too much, you might end up feeling a sense of entitlement. Know your limits and do not demand too much from a guy. The right man will give you what you rightfully deserve.
#8. Too much drama
Men do not like drama of fake giggles or a “baby” voice ㅡwhich you may perceive as cute. They also don’t like it when a woman turns every small thing into some big soap opera. Stop being overly dramatic and pull yourself together.
#9. Unable to hold a conversation
If you are unable to keep up with a conversation, it may indicate you are simply not compatible with the person. Instead, be bold, engage in conversation and put yourself out there. He will love your wit and intellect.
#10. Bad temper
If you have a short fuse you better keep in under control. If left unchecked, your temper may lead you to say hurtful things. Once spoken, words cannot be taken back. When spoken in anger, words can be damaging for you and your loved ones. This is one of the traits that most men walk away from. Be patient, calm yourself and improve your attitude. It will be very rewarding for all you know.
#11. Not having strong ambitions or goals
Have your own set of goals and ambitions. Take control of your life. If you do not have clear goals, it is highly likely that a man will find you unattractive because according to him, you may seem to be without a direction.
#12. Being unavailable
It is good to be assertive and independent, but playing hard to get will make you seem distant and disengaged. It may make it seem like you’re attention seeking and make you come off as annoying. He might think you have no interest in getting to know him on a deeper level.
#13. Not being passionate
While going through life, it is okay to get caught up with all life’s busy schedules. In fact, a man typically finds a strongly passionate woman very attractive. Even a small hobby that you love and regularly find time for will be a magnet for men.
#14. All the gossip
When you gossip excessively about others, it reflects negatively on your personality. If you gossip about your friends too much, stop now because. A man could easily adopt the belief that you are simply not trustworthy.
#15. Not listening
If you are selfish and care only about yourself, you will have little luck making meaningful connections. Men want to be with somebody who will listen to them. After all, that is what a relationship is aboutㅡbeing together and sharing life, through thick and thin.
#16. Not being true to yourself
Be authentic and stop over-analyzing your own behavior. This will make you insecure and make you distanced from him. Have your own opinion and if you disagree, simply articulate yourself with reason and logic. He will respect you for that. Let the diva in you take the spotlight; you do not have to be someone else.
#17. The intricate hairstyle
Spare yourself the effort of overlying styling your hair with complicated updos. Men prefer hairstyles that are more simple and natural. They are attracted to women with shiny and healthy hair, not hard and sticky the way hair sprays make them appear.
#18. Being unkind
Being mean and lacking compassion really gives a negative impressionㅡit’s unattractive. On the other hand, being kind and loving goes a long way. After all, since you are trying to find love, why not spread the love? Cheers.
#19. Being excessively wild
Men like women who are spontaneous and adventurous, but any activity which may seem culturally negative tends to be something most guys don’t appreciateㅡespecially if considering a woman he wants to have a serious relationship with. So while you must go out and have fun, know when and where to draw the line.
#20. Not taking care of yourself
Okay, ladies listen up: you don’t have to run for miles every day or eat vegetables all day long but, you do need to take care of yourself and your health. If not, men might perceive you as lazy and will naturally lose interest.
