If you ever feel completely unforgettable, don’t. While it’s natural to feel like a bit of a wallflower every now and again, you’re not destined to be this way for life. Little things can ensure that you stay in a person’s mind and make you completely memorable in every way. If you want to be an unforgettable woman who makes her mark on everyone you encounter, particularly guys, here are a few tips to help you on your way.
- Be confident. Of course, confidence isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us. You might have to work hard for it and it may take a long time to achieve. However, it’s possible. You don’t have to be a model. You don’t have to be the smartest woman in the room to be unforgettable. You just have to be sure of who you are and strong in your convictions that you’re amazing.
- Know yourself. Many women take their entire lives to truly get to know who they are. You can know who you are right now at this point in your life, though. What is important to you? What are you unwilling to compromise on? What do you expect from friendships and lovers? Even better, what do you offer others that no one else does? Reflect on these things and develop a strong sense of your own identity and the people around you will surely take notice.
- Embrace the joy of your own company. While others fear being on their own, you relish it. You’re totally comfortable with your own company. Going out in public by yourself to do the things you like doesn’t scare you. If it does, you do it anyway and pretty soon it isn’t anymore. It takes practice and you might be a little uncomfortable at first, but anyone can learn to love rolling solo.
- Be a sparkling conversationalist. When it comes to topics you’re passionate about, you can verbalize your thoughts and your ideas. If there’s a debate, you aren’t afraid to speak up and take the opposing point of view without putting the other person down. Most importantly, you don’t monopolize the conversation but rather enjoy the give and take of your interaction.
- Be a good listener. There’s a time to talk and a time to listen and you recognize each. When in conversation, you can see when someone is excited and has something to say. You give them time to say it and you actually absorb and think about what is being said before you respond. There’s no need to best their story with a better story of your own and you know that.
- Be easy to be around. Some people are hard to be with – inflexible, demanding, or dramatic. You take things in stride. Sometimes you do things your way, but other times you do what others want to do because it makes them happy. You aren’t afraid of new situations and embrace learning. You’re not a pushover but you’re also not high-maintenance. It’s a fine balance and you’ve managed to find it.
- Never judge people. Just because you have opinions and certain moral codes that are part of your life, you don’t judge others when they live their lives differently. You understand that the paths that people have taken may lead them to have unique experiences than you do and thus different lifestyles. You accept that there isn’t necessarily one right way to live life.
- Smile often and genuinely. Smiling is one of the best things you can do to make people remember you. You focus on finding the positive in life even when life isn’t perfect. Whether it’s meeting new people or being with friends and family, you find pleasure in all of them and your smile reflects that. People love it when they feel you’re happy to be with them.
- Offer compliments and praise regularly. If someone looks great, you tell them. When they have a significant point in a discussion that you haven’t considered before, you say so. You thank people for the things they do. Praise is something that doesn’t cost a thing and you give it out freely. Just make sure you’re handing out compliments because you mean them, not because you want to be liked.
- Give your full attention. When you’re with someone, whether intimately or in a more casual situation, you make the person you are with feel like they’re the only person in the room. You put down your phone when you’re having a conversation. You aren’t looking around the room for the next interesting person to talk to. The person you are with is your prime focus and they know it.
Whether you’re in a relationship with someone or have just made a new friend, you can be totally unforgettable. People remember other people that make them feel good. Your confidence, listening ear, and your smile make them feel important and validated and a person like that will never be forgotten.
