How to attract and keep a man

27 October 2014, 20:33

The way we carry ourselves as ladies goes a long way in determining the kind of men we would attract to our lives. While flying first class, you will notice that mostly it's passengers are men. This is because a man's priority is career while that of a woman is relationship. Mostly the things we do as ladies helps to send the wrong message to the opposite sex. Every woman wants a God-fearing, caring, intelligent, handsome, etc man - these are great qualities, but the way me go about getting them is what is mostly out of place. Here are some tips that would help you attract and keep the man of your dreams.

Be confident, having a right attitude towards yourself will help build your self esteem. Self confidence is not just gotten in a day, it needs a lot of nurturing for it to be achieved. A self-confident lady always looks in charge-even though she is not. Men naturally love women who are in charge and are thrilled by the attitude they put up. No one wants to walk into a relationship thinking he/she will do the work alone. This is what most men feel when they meet an unconfident lady. You can fake it if you're not, and with time, you'll become it.

Communication is the bedrock of any relationship and the lack of it can cause a rift in that relationship. It helps to strengthen a relationship, by this I mean that communication is the oil that lubricates all other aspects of a relationship, and when it is absent, the relationship is as good as not existing. Be yourself, most ladies fail in this aspect. Lying about your interests and achievements on your first date would only help to create a shaky foundation for your relationship. Be plain, always endeavour to say the truth in love. Don't pretend to be who you're not, because someday the truth will be revealed and you will end up embarrassing yourself. Work on yourself As a lady, you need to consider a few things before having a dream of a particular kind of guy you want in your life. Find out first the kind of girl a particular kind of man would be attracted to. A rich and intelligent man would be repulsed by an unintelligent and lazy girl who has nothing else to offer but sex. My dear you're a joker. So if you have that in mind, please wave it aside immediately.

A business guru will definitely want a woman who can hold her own and manage the home front, with or without him. An entertainer would definitely want a girl with strong physical appeal and great sense of style. So dear ladies my humble advice to you is that you should work on yourself, appreciate the way you've been created by God. Try as much as possible to build a high level of self-esteem, and not pride, for yourself. For it is what you think about yourself that will propel people to react to you the way they do. Lastly, develop your God given skills and put your best to whatever you can do well. Always leave room for improvement. Dress appropriately, for you are addressed by the way you dress. And don't forget to keep your dreams going till you achieve them, God willing, the sky will not be your limit, but your starting point.
