We women do a lot of things to try and impress the men we’re interested in, but have you ever wondered if what you do works? There are definitely habits we have and games we play that get the attention of our target men, but there are also things we do that accidentally put them off!

Keep it real and avoid these 10 things that don’t impress men:

#1. Faking interest in sports

When the guy you like is a sports fan, you may feel pressured to connect with him at that level. If it’s not your thing, don’t go there! Guys can tell right away if you actually like sports or you’re just saying it for his sake. If you know nothing about his favorite sport, you won’t be able to have a real conversation anyway. Stay true to you!

#2. Flirting with Others

If you like a specific guy, stick with it until you see where it can go. The idea that flirting with other guys will make him jealous and peak his interest is inaccurate. Guys just feel hurt and less interested when they see you flirting around.

#3. Tight clothes

Wearing tight clothes all the time does not make you more attractive to guys. Especially if you’re wearing something tight enough that it’s making you uncomfortable, this shows and guys don’t think it’s cute. Whatever your real style is, stick with that, and the guy for you will appreciate your genuineness.

#4. Playing hard-to-get

Making guys wait for replies to their calls and messages is not a game that will end in them desiring you more. In fact, it will end with the opposite outcome. You don’t need to answer with the first 5-seconds, but just communicate normally with the guy you like.

#5. Piles of makeup

Don’t wear more makeup than you normally would just to impress a guy! The truth is that they find it confusing when you wear too much makeup. Looking nice and presentable is one thing, but trying to cover up your real face is another. Guys want to see your natural beauty shine through.

#6. Lying

Lying is the easiest way to make a guy lose interest in you. Stay away from stories about yourself that aren’t true and try not to make claims you know you can’t back up!

#7. Overly serious

Don’t take yourself too seriously. Life is short and guys want a girl who’s willing to lighten up and have fun when the time calls for it.

#8. Being late

Coming late to dates does not make you look cool and special, it makes you look inconsiderate and uninterested! If you have planned something with your guy, do your best to respect the time commitment. Guys don’t want a girl who thinks it’s okay to be late with them all the time.

#9. Laughing at everything

Some things are funny and some are not. If your guy’s a joker, he’ll notice if you laugh equally at every one of his attempts, and he’ll think it’s a fake reaction. Chill out and just be natural. If something is funny, you’ll laugh, and if it’s not, your guy will try again anyway!

#10. Acting dumb

Guys do like to be able to teach things to the girls they’re with, but the are not interested in a girl who pretends she’s dumb! Share your knowledge and both of you will learn new things together. Don’t put yourself down for a guy because he won’t be impressed anyway!

Basically, impressing guys is really simple. What it comes down to is just being yourself. So take a deep breath and let go of the need to play another role!
