1. Take Grooming Seriously
Sometimes women slack off in this department, whether it's been a long time since they had a date or they just feel burnt out from all of life's demands. It's important to take good care of yourself and have some pride in your appearance. Little things like styling your hair, wearing accessories or jewelry, and using makeup will set you apart and show that you made an effort. It also shows confidence, which leads us to the next step.
2. Be Confident
We've heard it a billion times, but it's worth repeating – because some of you just don't get it! Having confidence is something that makes you more desirable to men than the makeup or clothes you wear. There are psychological and even biological reasons for this, but it's enough to keep in mind that your attitude will influence those around you. With confidence comes the next big way to make yourself more attractive.
3. Know What You Want
A man loves a woman who knows what she wants. Your certainty in choosing career goals, sexual interests, and even your pick off the dinner menu are all things that men look at both consciously and subconsciously as reflections of your stability. The more secure and sure you are of something, the more stable you appear to be. It will also show that you are mature and capable of making important decisions. While these qualities sound boring, they are actually very important to your attractiveness.
4. Drop the Attitude
While you're building your confidence and strong will, it's also crucial to keep your attitude in check. You may even develop an attitude you never had in the process of doing these things. Don't get a big ego, and don't project a sense of entitlement to any man – he will definitely be turned off. This is a good step to take if you want to appear more attractive instantly.

These behaviors can include shifting your body in the direction he's in, sitting and standing up straight with your shoulders back, and keeping a natural and subtle smile. You can even play with your hair a little. Do a little body language adapting, and you'll see a difference in the attention you get.
