How To Attract Girls Or The Top 3 Ways To Get Girls To Notice You

Dealing with women you want to attract is a special chapter in every man’s life. You can make a ton of mistakes interacting with women, because women are much more sensitive about social dynamics. Women can figure out how much experience you have with other women in minutes – if not in seconds.

If you wonder why, here’s the reason: Women have a much higher interaction experience than men because they:

A) in general interact more (with men and women) and even more important:

B) since they were 13 years old guys were hitting on them. So the sum of experience women have with guys is much higher than men have with women. Ergo, men have a lot to catch up on.

What does this mean for you? Simply that the more experience you get in interacting with women, the BETTER you will get (provided that you don’t make the same mistakes again and again). This means you have to practice a lot. You have to know this before you take a look at the

Top 3 Ways to Get Girls to Notice You:

1) Improve the way you dress.

Looks are NOT the most important part of attracting girls, but they are important, because they affect how somebody who doesn’t know you will assess you. People judge by the looks and you have only seconds to demonstrate that you are a man of style. Don’t mess it up with boring sweaters and dirty sneakers.

You don’t have to dress like a gigolo either. If you look like a software engineer, try to loosen your clothes a little bit - add some color to it. Get rid of plaid and Hawaiian shirts. Look for some interesting necklaces, rings or wristlets. Why? Because every woman wants to know what they stand for.

2) Be social.

This simply means that on every given event where a lot of people come together, you should interact with different women and man. Get to know people. Try to make a habit of it.

Why? Because one of the things women look for in a man is (social) status. Standing alone in a corner with a beer in your hand watching all the other people having fun is the lowest status you can demonstrate.

You think women are too busy talking to someone to notice it? As if! Women have something like a radar for social status. They notice in seconds who’s the center of attraction on a party (and feel drawn to this person) and who’s the loser nobody’s talking to.

So, try to become the center of attraction interacting with people. It’s not easy, especially if you are not a social person. But it’s no nuclear science either, that means you can learn it.

For example you can come up with: “Hi guys! I have a quick question for you - who lies more, men or women?” It’s a topic everyone likes to talk about and nobody will shut you down on this one. The tricky thing with this “opener” (a question or statement you start a conversation with) is that you need to explain why you are asking. So say something like “I read a female magazine (at the dentist) today and they did this study. Me and my buddy are arguing about it all day…”

If you are a shy person and can’t bring yourself to talk to “strangers”, please consider this: Shyness is not in your genes. It all comes back to a habit. For the most part you are shy because you don’t talk to (many) people! Make the first step, than make the second and the third. And before you can say knife being social will become your new habit.

You don’t want to change yourself? Maybe this will motivate you: If you carry on doing what you’ve always done, you’ll carry on getting what you’ve always got – the same poor outcomes (no girls, no fun, no happiness).

3) Be different.

This sounds like an ad slogan and is nonetheless a key point in attracting girls. Try to develop a unique personality, your own point of view on anything. Have concrete goals in life.

Why? Because it makes you interesting, it makes you stand out from the last 10 or even 100 guys the girl you’re talking to hooked up with. It’s a fact: Women like men with (concrete) goals as this demonstrates a strong, assertive character.

Being different also means that you can demonstrate (a special) value – something not everyone can do. This doesn’t mean that you have to play a greasy song on the guitar (but do so if you can). For example you can ask her about the last time she laughed with all her heart (say a friend asked you this and you didn’t know what to answer first). Ask her to tell you about the happiest moment of her life or a special moment in her childhood and then tell yours. Try to relate to her thoughts and feelings, but don’t overdo it.

Read up on palm reading, dream interpretation or psycho tests (it’s not that difficult to memorize this stuff as all those “tests” work with given patterns) and use it on your next date. Women love all kinds of tests.

Don’t forget: it’s not only about the content but your presentation as 90 % of the communication is non-verbal (60% is Body Language and 30% is Tone). That means you also have to learn how to read her body language. But don’t be down in the mouth: Although it’s a lot of work, it’s a lot of fun too! And you will get better every time you perform those things. So, don’t put it off, start practicing today!

P.S. You can find excellent tips on how to read women’s body language here. Did you know that if she touches (or plays with) her hair or her neck/ ears she’s probably interested in you? That if she puts on her lipstick right in front of you it doesn’t mean she wants you to kiss her?

Kama Sutra – Spice Things Up

Kama Sutra sexual positions are more like an acrobatic art than what many consider to be normal sex. Of the 64 sexual positions covered in the Kama Sutra, maybe ten percent of them are something that most couples engage in on a regular basis. Maybe this is the problem in relationships today.

When people are together and loyal to each other for a long time, they tend to get too comfortable in their sexual relationship, or worse, they can lose interest in their sexual partnership. 90% of marriages that end in divorce are a result of sexual problems or money problems or a combination of both. Kama Sutra will not likely help with the money problems unless you read the part that teaches you to be a prostitute (courtesan), but that, too, will likely lead to sexual problems.

Kama Sutra can, however, help with sexual problems. If you are comfortable in your sexual relationship, meaning if you do the same things time and time again due to a level of comfort that you and your partner have gotten used to, then it’s probably time to spice things up a bit. Of the 64 sexual positions outlined in Kama Sutra, how many of them do you think you have done with your partner? Probably not very many of them. Pick up the text and start reading. It’s time to give something different a try. Learn to master the new positions together. You can do this by reading the book together or by buying a video that focuses on Kama Sutra positions. The best way, though, is by practicing them – a lot.

If you have unfortunately lost interest in sex over years with the same partner, you can re-spark your sex life with Kama Sutra. Ask your partner to help you learn. Explain to him or her that you have become bored and complacent and that your libido just isn’t what it used to be. Let your partner know that it is not their fault and that they have done nothing wrong, this is natural in the course of relationships and you just need some help finding something new and different to peak your interest. Learning Kama Sutra together can not only help your sex life but can also bring you closer together emotionally. Isn’t that what a partnership is really about?

Don’t let your sex life ruin your relationship with the one you love. Learn about Kama Sutra and keep the spice in your life.

What Is The Kama Sutra?

The Kama Sutra is not so much about sex as it is about sexuality. Many people believe the Kama Sutra to be a book of sexual positions. It is true that there are ten chapters of the book dedicated to different sexual positions and ways to please your sexual partner, but the premise of the book is in getting to the sexual part and to maintain a good, loving relationship where sex is about pleasing each other and knowing how to make the other feel good – but in a socially proper manner.

Kama Sutra is often confused with Tantra or Tantric sex. The difference between these are that Kama Sutra is how to make love properly and how to conduct yourself before and after making love. Tantra is the art of sex and how to please your partner, make sex last longer, and, most importantly, the intimacy of sex. Both Kama Sutra and Tantra have eastern origins and they are often intermixed for the perfect before, during, and after sexual experience.

The Kama Sutra covers all sexual bases. The positions are only a small part of the book’s teachings. It teaches things that are now considered fetishes or taboo in western society. The Kama Sutra teaches partners how to bite, scratch and hit each other during love making. The book also teaches a woman how to be a courtesan or prostitute, and it teaches homosexual positions as well as heterosexual ones. The book teaches how to use “instruments” on each other for pleasure, and when all else fails, how to cast a magical spell or administer aphrodisiacs to enhance sexual pleasure.

The Kama Sutra has been translated and rewritten a minimum of six times to the English language. Even when reading the translated versions of the book, some of the phrases and terms will take some getting used to. Most people, when first looking at the book, will scan it and spend the most time in the ten chapters of sexual positions. Be careful not to take some of the phrases too literally, though. Elephant sex does not mean sex with an elephant, it is simply a term used for a particular position.

The most popular translation, and possibly the first to the English language, was by Sir Richard Burton. The best translation, in this author’s opinion, is by Alain Daniйlou and called The Complete Kama Sutra. I like this version because this one seem to be the closest to the original text. However, neither of these translations come with the benefit of illustrations. The illustrated version is called The Complete Illustrated Kama Sutra by Lance Dane, also an excellent version.

Why Nice Guys Finish Last

Why being good is a near synonym with “looserism” is something I don’t really get. I mean seriously, being good is essentially treating people well and caring for their feelings.

But probably caring too much is mixing up priorities and that’s exactly where the good guy falls flat. Too many good guys believe that to be good, they have to be dumb, weak and sensitive. This inadvertently turns out to be the bad guy’s advantage. The bad guy doesn’t care what people think, he’s the type who used to flout all the rules at school, hang out till late at night with friends and spend away his parent’s hard earned cash on drinks and smokes. Good guys on the other hand came back when expected, stayed mute in class, and allowed the bad dude to walk all over him….just because he was told not to fight.

Getting into the Bad boy’s head
A bad guy knows what he wants, and he gets it by hook or crook. Their self image is based on false pride, attitude problems and a larger than life projection of themselves when it comes to socializing and mixing. These are the kind of people who’ve never seen a problem in life and so end up thinking that they can get whatever they want. They have that carefree (or careless) kind of attitude which is irresistibly appealing. Despite all the bad things they do, they end up getting both the respect and the accolades.

What the Girls like
How many times have you heard a female spat out “there isn’t a single good guy left in this world!!!” and how many times have you seen the same female go out with a guy who can’t tell north from south. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say they had no clue of what they want! Girls like guys who are assertive and confident. Also a bad guy can keep a girl guessing by giving her the “I don’t give a damn” look. Girls look for a challenge in a relationship which a bad guy is more than happy to offer. Good guys on the other hand, become too predictable after a while so they end up being tagged as boring.

Essentially the difference is merely of guts and not of good or bad. In fact a few pointers to the good souls out there and they will see their problems disappear. First; learn to stand up for yourself: Become aggressive and assertive, its good if you care for someone else’s feelings but it should not be your only concern. Secondly; put yourself before everybody else. In their quest to be as “good” as they can the good guys end up totally ignoring themselves….wrong!!! Believe that it’s your life, your choices and your own priorities are above anybody else’s (especially above a girl who may walk out on you in the first place). Thirdly; pump up your social skills; go out and talk to some people and build up your confidence, be proud of who you are, there ain’t many of you left in this sad, bad world! Remember Bad guys rule when good guys allow it!

To sum it all up – Bad guys get what they want simply because they know what they want and there are no questions in their heads about it. Good guys conversely, know what they want but bother too much with ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’. They end up creating too many obstacles for themselves which drains away their confidence and leaves them hanging in the balance. So there; you are a good soul which means your place in heaven is reserved; now you got to make a place in this world which really isn’t that hard. Half of the war is already won as you are basically a good human being, all you would want to work on is being damn proud of that and then letting people know that you are far better than that show off jerk!

So much for part 1. Stay tuned for the next article where we shall discuss how you can have a well balanced personality. Know that you can be bad without having a taxed conscience!

The Essential Lingerie Guide For Men

Buying underwear for the lady in their life is a scary proposition for most men. Getting married and saying 'I do' comes with about the same amount of fear as wandering round the lingerie section at your local department store trying to work out what a cup is, and what the difference between a demi bra and a triangle bra is. On the one hand there's the worry that you'll buy something that either will be the wrong size (will she be offended if you thought she was bigger, or smaller, than she is?) or that you'll buy something totally inappropriate, and of course the nagging worry that people will think you're merely staring as a result of some kind of strange fetish you happen to have.

The first thing to do when it comes to choosing lingerie for her is to start at home with what she already has. Have a hunt through her underwear drawer and find her favourite sets. Have a look at them and try to note down the sizes of both the bra and the knickers. Wherever possible it is best to spend a few extra pounds and get a set rather than just one or the other. Women seem to prefer matching sets, so just go with it. Check out features of her favorites, such as colors and styles. Check if it is under wired or not. You can tell this because an under wired bra has a thick wire running through the lower seam under each cup. If the whole thing is flexible, then it isn't under wired.

When you reach the shop, don't be afraid to touch. Many men have an embarrassed look at the sizes and colours, grab the first one that seems right and make a rapid dash for the till. However, remember that this material is going to be worn close against sensitive areas of her body for a long time, (or as long as you let her of course!), so it needs to be comfortable. Is it soft and comfortable? Is it under wired, and if so, does that feel well padded?

One thing to bear in mind is that there is often a world of difference between what men like to imagine their lady wearing, and what women actually like wearing. When choosing underwear, try to aim more for a classic look rather than something more likely to be worn by someone on a dodgy adult video. Try to avoid unnecessary lace and frills, and see-through material is unlikely to be met with as much enthusiasm as you would like to pretend. Similarly, open crotch and things are not the wisest choice.

Something for the more adventurous male to try, and which is likely to be met with more enthusiasm, is to look at the alternatives to the traditional knickers and bra sets. Camisole sets, corsets and babydolls are all types of underwear which are classic, very romantic and effectively combine kickers and bra into one look. The same rules apply however, and you would be wise to avoid buying something more likely to make her look cheap than classy.

One final world of advice: always keep the receipt. If all else fails and it has to go back, why not take her with you and let her help you? It will make choosing underwear on your own in future a little easier, and she'll be only too happy to offer you advice and tell you her preferences.

Do Male Pheromones Affect The Way Women Feel?

In addition to investigating the effect that male pheromones have on women's hormones and their brain activity, researchers have also studied whether pheromones affect women's moods and perceptions.

The primary difficulty in evaluating the impact of male pheromones on emotions and perceptions of women is that these factors are subjective. That is to say, unlike hormone levels and brain activity as measured by sophisticated scanning techniques, they can't be objectively measured.

Another difficulty in this type of study is that they tend to use extracts from the underarms of men. They include a number of substances that are believed to function as pheromones: androstadienone or AND, androstenol, and androstenone. As you'll see below, these substances seem to have conflicting or opposite effects on women's perceptions, making it difficult to attribute a response to any one male pheromone.

In one of the earliest studies of the effect of male pheromones on women's moods, samples from the underarms of men were applied to the upper lips of women. The men had refrained from using deodorant for four weeks, presumably because the antibacterial properties of deodorant can inhibit the conversion of secretions from the apocrine glands in the underarm into the pheromones androstenol and androstenone.

(While application to the upper lip might sound like a bizarre ritual, it mimics the circumstances under which pheromones transfer from men to women. An extended period of contact is usually involved-and the women wore the pheromones on their upper lips for six hours. The application directly under their nostrils also ensured that their brains received a continual stream of chemical messages. Finally, pheromones often transfer from men to women via direct skin contact, through shaking hands, hugging, or even a casual kiss of greeting.)

The women were unaware that the substance they were testing was male pheromones; they believed it was a household product that was being readied for the market. In any event, they were asked to rate their moods during a six-hour period. The women reported feeling calmer and more relaxed.

A similar study applied androstadienone to the upper lips and necks of women and gave them a series of psychological tests that lasted for two hours. The tests were tedious, and women who received androstadienone maintained their initially positive mood far longer than did women who received an inert control substance.

In another study, both men and women wore masks to which androstenol had been applied. They then rated photographs of strangers. Women represented in photographs were perceived to be more attractive, sexier, and friendlier than when rated by people who were not exposed to androstenol. The men pictured were perceived to be more warm and approachable.

The same methodology applied to another substance that's part of underarm secretions-androstenone-revealed that women rated their own mood as less sexy while evaluating pictures of men.

Do pheromone-influenced perceptions results in more sexual activity?

The only study that seems to document this connection found that men who used a male pheromone product for six weeks experienced more sexual behavior involving a female partner than did men who didn't use the product. Objections to this study include the fact that the chemical formulation of the pheromone product-and even what male pheromones it contained-was not disclosed. The results of this study have not been duplicated elsewhere.

Choosing Designer Lingerie - A Man's Guide

We all know women love designer lingerie but if your a guy buying for that special lady sometimes selecting the right item can be harder than you think.
At Ansiti Lingerie we specialise in advising both men and women on how to select lingerie that fits well and looks great. Here's some advice for guys looking to buy something special.

To begin with make sure you know your hosiery from your basques.
Hoisery is generally thought of as coverings for legs and feet and is sometimes reffered to as legwear. Hosiery comes in many forms but is generally tights, hold-ups, stockings and socks. Remeber if its stockings you are buying you may also need to buy a suspender belt. If it is a basque you are looking for then it is a garment worn that may cover the midsection and have a built in bra.

Do you know the bra and briefs size for the lucky lady you wish to treat? If not, don't give up just yet. You can always have a sneaky peak through her underwear drawer and check her sizes. Check the size of a bra that she wears quite often . A bra size will always be a number and a letter eg. 34C. Also check for the size of the knickers. If you have no chance of checking her undies drawer you can ask her friends, mum or daughter. They may not know but they will be able to find out more discreetly than you! If there is no way of finding out what size she is then don't give up there.

You can always buy her some nightwear or hosiery. These often come in dress size (eg. Size 10) or Small, Medium and Large. See a size guide for help with these sizes.

What should you choose?

Choose something that you think she will like but also something you like as well. Think about what sort of styles she likes. Does she wear a padded bra or underwired bras. Does she wear thongs, briefs or shorts? Try and buy her something that she would not necessarily buy for herself.

Black and red are classics but purples and pinks are also a popular alternative. Silk lingerie also makes a special treat. The whole package is important so treat her to the bra and knickers and also any other matching items that may be available such as camisoles or suspender belts and stockings. Also think about camisoles, baby dolls and corsets.

Still struggling?

The Evolution Of Lingerie

Today's lingerie plays a double role: functional and seductive.

It's during the Renaissance (around the 14th century) that women started wearing what we currently refer to as panties, and more generally, lingerie. But only at the end of the following century did the word underwear actually replace that of "body linen"; in turn, underwear is now considered "plain", the seductive moniker being "lingerie".

It was only a matter of time before lingerie entered the wardrobe as a clothing item in and of itself, therefore carrying its own social meaning. It asserted a more and more liberated behavior, a healthier relationship with one's body, a way to nonchalantly display what formerly very intimate. This was a new role for underwear.

As years went by, elegance was replaced with seduction, which has, in turn, been replaced with a sensuality that shows itself with no taboo whatsoever. Lingerie is a flagship product of the fashion industry, and as such it boasts a number of attributes desired by every woman: seduction, embellishment, imagination, pleasure, well-being and beauty.

As previously mentioned, today's lingerie plays a double role: functional and seductive. By the end of the 90's, the obsession was discretion. Showing a panty line or, to a lesser extent, the outline of a bra, was out of the question. Thus Lycra was introduced, bringing its elasticity to the plate, allowing for increased seamlessness. On the seduction side, lingerie goes the opposite direction and displays itself to the world forgoing the intimate in favor of the blatant.

Women tend to belong to one of two categories: the ones that like lace, embroidered fabrics, sensitive to the sexy, seductive aspect of lingerie, and the ones that only care for absolute discretion under the skin-tight clothes, with no regard for the fabric itself. Nevertheless, the the jury is out as to whether a thong or g-string should be shown or not. Although certain people consider it to be vulgar, it is unanimously recognized that it has an undeniable aesthetic effect that brings out the curves and guarantees the absence of panty lines. It's probably a moot point, because when a woman is wearing a thong, it's obvious. Not necessarily because she shows it, but merely because the absence of panty lines pretty much underlines it (no pun intended).

Today, lingerie companies like Frederick's of Hollywood and Victoria's Secret have annual modeling shows and national commercials to promote their lingerie. Society has changed from hiding what we have on underneath to showing it off.

Swimwear: Evolution And Changing Trends

The history of swim wear - be it menswear or women’s wear - makes fascinating study. Women's swim wears have always been a heated topic in the fashion industry and there has been several changes in women’s swim wear according to the trends of the passing eras. Women's swim wears were initially introduced with the purpose of covering up certain essential body parts of those women who were daring enough to bathe publicly. Since then, there have been several changing styles and functions of the female bathing suit. It is indeed amazing to know that so much has been achieved in the swim wear with such scant material.
The first known use of a bathing costume was in Greece during 350 B.C. The fourth century mosaic wall was discovered depicting girls dressed in what resembles the modern-day bikinis. But, swim wear went out of fashion after the fall of the Roman Empire when water sports were no longer encouraged and the prudish Europeans regarded the sea more as a source of physical therapy than recreation.

Spas where men and women together engaged in public bathing began in France and England during the 18th century. The typical swim was nothing more than a brief symbolic dip in the water with ladies on one side of the beach and men on the other.

The earliest bathing suit was an old smock more in the nature of a bathing gown. Thus these suits were far from comfortable and ladies started sewing lead weights into the hem of the bathing gown to prevent any indecent exposure.

The early 1800's were presumably the starting point of a revolution in swim wear when Americans openly and publicly flocked to the beaches for seaside sports and recreation.

When public swimming, sun bathing and water sports became increasingly popular, the time was ripe for change in women's swim wear. The necessity arose for a specially designed swim wear that not only protected one’s modesty but also convenient enough to engage in swimming and sports activities.

By the end of the 19th century, swimming had come to be recognized as an acceptable form of water activity and as well as an intercollegiate and Olympic sport. By the 1880's the women’s swim wear was introduced, consisting of a blouse and trousers in one piece. There was also a separate skirt that extended below the knee with buttons at the waist to conceal the figure.

Then we had the swimsuits that started gradually exposing more and more skin. The beginning of the twentieth century signaled a bold era in swim wear for women. After that swimsuits began the trend of becoming more transparent and briefer. This was followed by a bikini or two-piece women's swimwear consisting of two separate items - one covering the breasts and another covering the groin or the entire buttocks region. The rest of the torso was left uncovered.

As the women's swim wears witnessed a gradual evolutionary process, men's swim wear also underwent many changes over time. From the beginning men’s swim wear was distinctly different from the female's suit, with pronounced characteristics of boxiness and solidity contrasted with the exaggerated curves of the women’s wear.

Though men were beginning to look sexier, there was still some controversy regarding baring the chest. However, men continued to fight for their right to expose their chest and by the early 1933, we had a convertible-style suit that allowed the top to be removed.

With women's suits becoming more and more daring and flamboyant during the 1950's and beyond, the male bathing costume saw an explosion of color patterns and fancy artwork.
