Physical attraction is a primal thing that seems to come easily to men, but emotional attraction is another thing. It can feel like we spend all of our energy as women trying to win it.

The trick is to start work after the initial visual attraction takes place. Once you realize a guy is interested, you can start to focus on building his attraction.

Focus on these 4 things to help a guy become emotionally attracted to you:

#1. Manage insecurity

There is no person alive who doesn’t have insecurities. It would be impossible to ask someone to rid themselves of these feelings. There are ways, though, to live your life so that your insecurities are not what represent you.

Before trying to find a relationship, know, accept, and love yourself. That is how you will build your self-esteem and belief in yourself.

#2. Stay positive

When you manage to shed your overwhelming fear of rejection by believing in yourself, an automatic shift in the quality of your thoughts will occur. They will be more positive.

Choosing positivity needs to be done everyday. Instead of allowing anxiety and fear to dictate your thoughts and decisions, try to look at every aspect and obstacle of your life with love and opportunity for growth.

#3. Practice patience

When we women set our minds on something, we go at it with full force. While this is one of our biggest strengths, it can be hurtful to potential emotional connections with men. Guys need to take their time when it comes to forging a new bond.

Remind yourself that getting to know someone is a process that occurs over time. While you may feel a strong pull to a guy, he may want to take things step by step to feel sure of his moves with you.

#4. Be there

Mindfulness is one of the most important tools to help you build a relationship founded on emotional attraction. If you are not present in yourself during the time you spend with a guy, how will he be able to get a true sense of who you are?
