When starting your search for a woman to date or hook up with, you’ve probably heard plenty of advice about how nice guys finish last and that girls love a bad boy. This is sometimes true, but more often than not you can get more with honey than with vinegar. In other words, acting like a sensitive guy instead of a total jerk can actually get you more women. Not only will more women be attracted to you if you act like a sensitive guy, it’s also usually a much easier act to put on than acting like a douche in order to get the girl. There is a good reason why girls often go for the sensitive guy.
It Seems More Romantic to Them
Sensitivity is a good trait to show women because it gets them in a more romantic state of mind. If you want to hook up with women, this can be a major benefit because it will attract them to you for a very specific reason. They will get the idea that you care about them as a person and really want to get to know them. While this might be true all the time, women often don’t see bad guys as wanting to genuinely know them. Showing that you’re sensitive and open to them emotionally is often a big turn on, as strange as it might seem to you.
It Makes You Stand Out from the Other Guys
Obviously, most guys who are trying to put on a persona when meeting and picking up women are going to go for the bad boy stereotype. They’re going to try and show women that they really don’t care. This can work for some guys, but if it’s far off from your regular personality it can be extremely difficult to keep up the act. However, most guys aren’t going to try and appear sensitive to women. It can be difficult or even embarrassing when you start opening up to women that you meet, but it will be worth it because the other guys won’t bother. Acting like a sensitive guy is a great way to stand out to women purely because none of the other guys are going to be trying the same thing. Women are approached by bad boys so often that it might be losing its appeal, which is where you’ll really shine.
Avoiding Coming Off as Too Sensitive
You want to find a good balance between sensitivity and shyness. If you appear too sensitive, you might wind up pinging a woman’s gaydar and she may try to brush you off. There is a balance between masculinity and sensitivity, and you need to push it. Be confident while still being open emotionally and willing to talk about your feelings. You don’t need to be mushy, but be open about your desires and thoughts instead of trying to play the mysterious card. As long as you don’t start crying, you should be fine and you should make a good impression.
