You, as a person, will have, at some point, tried to ‘woo’ someone. You did something with the express intention of impressing a potential mate, didn’t you? We’ve all done it - this is no slight in your direction.
Sometimes, this will go well and you might even get lucky - other times though, because you are who you are, you will crash and burn with the strength of a thousand virgin suns.
Taking this fact into account, what Reddit has done, is gathered together a big long list, written by mostly women, of the things that men think will make them appear attractive, but actually have the opposite effect. I’ve helpfully listed the best ones below for you, so that you can put a big strike through them on your chat-up list:
1. Getting in scrapes with the police
2. Flashing the cash
3. Being rude about your ex
4. Going heavy on the cologne
5. Dick pics (we could’ve told you this one)
6. Lynx (Axe to Americans)
7. Baby talk (apparently this is a thing?)
8. Making your voice sound deeper
9. Getting in fights
10. Making fun of people / ‘banter’
11. Covering up that bald spot
12. Being rude to waiting staff
13. Picking someone up without consent
14. Revving your car or motorbike
15. Taking over on simple tasks
Yes, that is correct: take off the fedoras, guys. Remove from head, put in blender, blend, drink. Do anything but wear.
I think that’s enough to be getting on with today - stop all those things above and you’ll greatly increase your success with finding a mate. Godspeed.
I SAID TAKE OFF THE FEDORA.
