The dating scene is quite saturated with beautiful, interesting women. As such, it can be difficult to stand out without actually saying that you’re different from other girls, which is something everyone says nowadays.
The good news is that we’re all different and we all have something unique to bring to the table. The tricky part is figuring out how to showcase that when you’re in the dating world.
There are many techniques you can use to stand out from the crowd, which will give you better luck in finding the kind of person you’re looking for. If you don’t know where to start, today we will provide 5 ideas that will help you present yourself as a more interesting option.
How to Stand Out to a Guy:
1. Develop a unique sense of style:
Men are visual, which means that one of the easiest ways to stand out is to look different. You will not only get their attention a lot faster, but you will also make quite a lasting impression. Almost like when a peacock creates a colorful feathers fan before they approach a potential mate. Though we don’t have colorful feathers, we do have fashion.
Developing a unique sense of style is something you should do for yourself and no one else. Sure, it will help you stand out in the dating scene, but it will also allow you to express your personality and build your self-confidence. Fashion is about having fun and being creative while also wearing the things that flatter you and bring out your best attributes. It may take some practice, but once you establish your style, it will feel amazing.
2. Share your unique interests and hobbies:
When you’re trying to look for someone to date, sharing your unique interests and hobbies will help you find like-minded men. Additionally, it will help you stand out from the crowd. Men want to have interesting conversations and they gravitate toward women who are passionate about something.
So, if you don’t have a hobby or a special interest already, you should try to find one. It’s not only a fun thing you can do in your free time, but it can also allow you to learn new things, obtain new skills, and discover something new about yourself. It will make for interesting conversations and even interesting dates where you can share your hobby with the person you’re attracted to.
3. Show interest in who he is:
Men often encounter women who are more interested in the kind of career they have or the kind of financial security they can assure than ones who care about what kind of person they are. As a result, many men think that women only care about status or wealth, however, that’s not entirely true.
It’s true that most women worry about how educated or how successful their future husbands will be. That’s okay and expected because it matters in the real world and makes a big difference in what type of lifestyle these women and their unborn children will have. Although a woman may be successful herself, she may still want to be with a partner who’s at least as successful as her and that’s understandable. But, it doesn’t harm to equally care about the men’s personalities and how emotionally compatible they are with you rather than just what they can or cannot financially afford.
This is why one of the best ways to stand out from the crowd is to show a man that you’re interested in who he is as a person, how he was raised and what makes him tick rather than focus on what he does for a living. So, switch the conversation from his job to his personality real quick once you figure out what he does at least. Breaking down the type of career he has into little pieces can make the conversation too formal and boring. Instead, show him you’re not interested in that, you want to know his personality and what kind of person he is. That’s a much more interesting conversation to have.
4. Don’t obsess about how you’re perceived:
In the age of social media, people are becoming obsessed with how they look and how people perceive them. They spend so much time crafting an online persona that they often forget that social media does not matter that much. What matters is connecting with people in real life and allowing yourself to bond with them.
Otherwise, it’s very difficult to connect with someone and have an intimate relationship. Now, there’s nothing wrong with using social media and liking it. However, it shouldn’t be your entire personality. Men don’t want to feel like a prop for your social media posts, so make sure to keep things real. Keep in mind that it’s always refreshing to go on a date with a girl that doesn’t go on her phone or check her social media every 5 minutes. So be that exception and try to challenge yourself to not go on your phone for the entire date and then see how it went!
5. Compliment him:
There’s nothing sexier for some men than a woman who feels confident enough to come onto them, flirt with them, and tell them just how much effect they have on her. We’re taught that men are always the ones to make the first move, and that’s why making the first move as a woman can quickly make you unforgettable. It will surely help you stand out from other women, although we cannot guarantee that it will lead to the desired result as some men may find that emasculating.
This is why you need to move with caution; first, try to see what type of personality your crush has and then decide accordingly if he will appreciate having you make the first move instead!
Approach men with confidence and don’t be afraid to compliment the things you like about them. This is not really the same as making the first move but it is a safer option to help you gauge whether they like you or not. Most men like to hear that they’re handsome, fun, smart, etc. We all love a good ego boost, so make sure to do that whenever it’s possible.
Focusing on your strengths and bringing to light the things that make you unique is how you can stand out from other women. Additionally, consider the 5 strategies listed above and you won’t have a problem finding a hot date.
