If you’re having trouble getting yourself a girlfriend, chances are it’s nothing major keeping you from it. Don’t stress out trying to completely change yourself; it just takes a tiny bit of self-analysis to realize what the problems are and fix them. The good news is that the changes will be tiny, and that you’ll see results immediately. The bad news…there is no bad news. Pinpoint your problems, and then you’ll know what to change right away.
Unless you’re a lumberjack or a fisherman, girls don’t like a guy with a full beard, or, more specifically, the neck beard (ala Pau Gasol). If you have one, even if it’s your pride and joy, for the sake of getting girls it might be the time to shave it. A full beard that’s unshaven across your neck is perceived as dirty by a lot of girls and they won’t go near a guy who has one. Try trimming it down to a chinstrap or a goatee, and see how much of a difference that makes. Avoid having just a mustache because girls think that’s creepy.
If you aren’t good at making small talk, it’s high time you practice. Being a good conversationalist is crucial to getting a girlfriend, which is bad because a lot of guys aren’t the smoothest talkers. If you lack the silver tongue that will have ladies swooning, make it up. Plan your conversation starters beforehand so you don’t have to come up with them off the top of your head. Don’t go for cheesy pick-up lines, but make sure you have one or two good icebreakers up your sleeve.
It’s likely that if you don’t smell the best, you don’t really notice it. Try and focus on it to make sure that’s not the issue. It’s a simple fix if that is the issue, so don’t worry. Just make sure you shower at least once a day, and right before any dates. Brush your teeth twice a day to keep away bacteria that cause bad breath, and don’t ever eat foods that will make your breath bad before you go out. You might think that gum will cover the scent – it won’t. It’ll just add a minty scent to the garlic, which is worse. Before going out, make sure to put on cologne or body spray. These smells disguise any offensive odors you might give off, and are filled with pheromones to draw in the girls. Last but not least, be sure to apply plenty of deodorant to keep from smelling like sweat while you’re out.
Changing your personality to get a girlfriend isn’t what you need to be doing; it’s too much effort and is rarely necessary. Usually it’s just small issues that need to be fixed, and then the ladies will come pouring in. Once you get a girl, just be yourself. She’s sure to love you, just take care of yourself. Your girlfriend doesn’t want to be your mom; she wants to date you, and won’t go for a guy who can’t take care of himself. This will make you infinitely more desirable to women.
