Can Acting Hot Actually Make You More Attractive?

We’ve all seen those people who aren’t necessarily traditionally good looking, but they’re just somehow extremely attractive. Is it their personality, or could it be that they just have a lot of confidence and find themselves to be totally attractive? It might be a mixture of both, but at the end of the day, the idea that you can actually come off as hotter just by acting hotter is pretty awesome.  Here’s why it just might work.

  1. You’ll be more outgoing. If you believe that you’ve got something to offer, then you’re naturally going to start feeling more comfortable opening up to other people. People like to be around others who are fun and who know how to let their hair down, so you’ll probably experience a boost in your popularity.
  2. Positive thinking never hurt anyone. Whether you believe that you really create your reality on this planet or not, you might as well try, just in case. Putting positive thoughts out there and constantly envisioning where you want to be either a week, a month, or a year from now can only help.
  3. People are drawn to confidence. Above all else, confidence is of the most appealing characteristics you can have because it tells people everything that they need to know: that you’re worth something. Can’t argue with that.
  4. You’ll be more assertive. Feeling bold about your attractiveness leads to more assertive behavior, such as actually making eye contact with people and being more straightforward about what you want and your intention of getting it. There’s nothing sexier than a woman who really goes for it in every area of her life.
  5. It leaves less room for worrying about comparing yourself. If you make the decision to work with what you’ve got going on to the fullest extent, then you won’t be so concerned with how you measure up to the other girls you know. Comparing yourself to others is pointless, because it’a game no one can (or should) win.
  6. You’ll be more fun to be around. Acting like you’re attractive has a playful aspect to it, which is a lot more entertaining than being uptight for no reason. Plus, anything’s got to be better than sitting around feeling bad about yourself. That attitude comes across to other people, and it’s anything but fun.
  7. You’ll intrigue people. When you think that you’re an appealing gal, than other people are more likely to see that and be interested to know more. Seeming mysterious can be an incredibly attractive quality and will have guys lining up to get to know you.
  8. It puts you in control. When you decide how you feel instead of leaving it open to interpretation, it keeps you in the driver’s seat of your own life. A woman who’s in charge of her own destiny is totally hot.
  9. You’ll have an excuse to get glam. If you’re going to act attractive, you might be inclined to make yourself actually look more attractive, and we all know how confidence-boosting it can be to have a fresh blow out and flattering makeup on.
  10. You’ll cultivate the many things that make you attractive. You might think you’re cute, but also be sure to play up the fact that you’ve got an awesome job or really unique hobbies. After all, you decide what’s hot, so might as well go with everything that you have to offer.
  11. You’ll be less inclined to rush into things. When people are acting sexy, they tend to literally physically move more slowly. Strangely, that can make you appear up to 10 percent hotter, just by not rushing around so much.
  12. It’s easier to keep a sense of humor. There’s a lightness to life when you aren’t overthinking everything or being hard on yourself, which can directly boost your sense of humor, and thus increase your attractiveness even more.
  13. You’ll make decisions that support your attractiveness. When you know that you’re attractive, you’ll be less willing to put up with anyone else’s behavior that doesn’t support that. Acting hot therefore makes you appear hotter to others, because there truly is more to being attractive than just how you look.
