if he types "c u later" instead of letting him drag you down to his level of illiteracy you should cut him loose and find someone that is capable of speaking, and texting, like a grown-up.

This article is something one would expect to have read in the 1940's or 50's.  It is encouraging women to be disingenous, unauthentic and manipulative in other words not true to themselves.  The "hints" for women to attract men infer that men are just narcisstic superficial  and want to be mimicked and tricked into attraction/relationship.  A relationship built on these  tips could only result in a very unhappy long term relationship when reality sets in, people start being who they really are and not who they were pretending to be.  This is a gigantic step backward for both women and men and NO "We haven't come a long way baby"  with this type of insidious trash being ciruclated let alone published.

Oh boy... it seems everywhere you go, society is telling you how to catch a man by submitting to him!

No, no, no, do NOT fake and imitate your way to a false connection.  Be yourself and you'll attract what you'll be genuinely comtable with!  Would you want a mate that had so deliberately and manipulatively emulated you to 'trick' you into be attracted to him?  Oh yuck, are we still dragging the 19th century into the 21st?  JUVenile!  (With apologies to all the wise and better-sensed Juveniles out there.)

Maybe this is how you might catch a man...but certainly not keep him! This is 2012 and I am a retired woman who knows!

Superficiality at it's best!  What happens when you are both > 50 years old.  Ity's supposed to be a relationship, not an advertisement.

incredibly offensive! why does society think these "tips" are still appropriate?

These tips are so predictable and unimaginative. I suppose they're great, however, if you're looking to attract the lowest common denominator.
Also, I wonder how "scientific" these studies were.

Oh, and I really hate red lipstick. It's too bright. I think red looks best on cherries and male cardinals. It's also great for stop signs and targets.

This is degrading and insulting to both sexes.
This article is exactly why feminism exists today, because of ****s (male and female) that make girls feel they have to alter who they are in order to "snag" a man, because they aren't good enough without pretending.

Alright Ladies I came across this and thought it would be hilarious to read so I flipped through the slides, laughed a little and then texted one of my male friends and asked him his . After a couple of minutes he responded and his response was, “I had a pretty stressful day today and I really neede****od laugh”. I’m 27 years old and grew up around mostly all males and most of my friends are males. Long story short it means I get to hear them all moan, groan and laugh at what girls of today have become. Here’s some actual tips that may help:


1. Be yourself because you can’t pretend to be someone you’re not for the rest of your life. It’s a total waste of your time when he finds out the real you and runs like hell. Move on to the next! You may have to kiss a few frogs before your find prince charming.

2. Get an education and a job. I can’t even count how many guys have said “There’s nothing like a girl who is beautiful and has a brain.

3. Your pretend high pitched voice is ANNOYING as hell. Correct me if I’m wrong but who wants a high pitched squeaky sound in their ear for the next 50 years? Or even for an hour? Not me!

4. Who gives a **** what color your lipstick is? Most guys who approach you aren’t looking at what color lipstick you have on. Tone it down with the makeup unless you are going out once in a while! Ask any guy, if he’d rather be cake face who takes 30 minutes a day apply her face or a natural look.

5. Keep it classy girls. Act like a lady for god sakes. There’s a fine line between sexy and slutty. Don’t give it up the night you meet a guy and wonder why you never hear from him again. Give a guy somewhat of a challenge and he’ll most likely respect you more.

6. Don’t sit back and wait for him to call or text you. If you want to call or text him then do it and carry on a conversation without out worrying if you’re saying the right thing!

7. Guys don’t want to hear or give a **** about all the drama that’s going on amongst your girlfriends. There are just some things you call up a and vent to.

8. Have a life outside of him. Everyone needs breathing room. Guys need their buddies and we need our girlfriends. Give him his space and make sure to take yours.

9. Don’t be so superficial. Today everyone has fake hair, fake nails, fake eyelashes and the list goes on. If you spent half the time out and about in public you’d probably meet someone!

 

I could go on forever but at the end of the day be comfortable with who you are as a person and you'll be perfectly fine.

Absolutely ridiculous! 

I'd like to see the scientific research on how to become more attractive to women?..... Oh wait there isn't any.

The George Kastanza's, Doug Hefferen's, Al Bundy's and Jim Belushi's of Hollywood comedy sitcom fame DO NOT get the slim, attractive girl in real life!

Personally, I find women who show up naturally without any make up stuff very very beautiful. Some simply try too hard!.

yugh, I hate my low voice. I can make it higher when necessary, but it feels strained after awhile. Funny how high voices have become associated with higher sex appeal when the opposite used to be true. You'd never catch Barbara Stanwyck chirping away at anyone!

As a guy I can tell you all the above is true.............if you are thin. There are no attractive fat women. When they talk about curves......they are the ones that go inwards not outwards across the abdomen!!
