The art of winning a beautiful woman or a hot guy may be a talent some are born with, but it's also something you can learn.
You don't have to resort to “muti” or magic - dating experts say anyone can learn how to charm. Studies show that the art of attraction is 10% projection of success, 10% appearance, 10% intelligence and 70% charm.
That means the biggest component of seduction is actually charm and personality rather than looks - and charm is something you can learn over time.
Here are some tips from a dating expert:
- Know how to use touch. Knowing how and where to touch someone can be powerful. For instance, placing your fingertips very briefly on their upper arm can really reinforce a point that you are making. Always use touch on ‘safe’ areas: Arms, shoulders, or hands, nowhere that is too intimate.
- Put the spotlight on others. There is nothing worse than someone who hogs the conversation and only talks about themselves. Always give other people the spotlight and show that you are interested in them by asking them about themselves.
- Show enthusiasm. First, being genuinely pleased to see someone always makes them feel good and it says you like and value their company. Second, make your default outlook in life one of positivity and enthusiasm.
- Smile. The most obvious and probably the simplest tip is to smile. If you smile, it shows you are non-threatening and probably are a nice person.
