5 Habits That Instantly Make You Uglier

Have you ever been with a girl, and things seem to be going okay? You think you're doing everything right when all of a sudden something changes in her demeanor. Then, you get the sense you did something terribly wrong? Maybe she rushes out with a lame excuse and leaves. Or, maybe it's more subtle, something in her body language that you can't quite put your finger on?

Either way, you're left alone and ghosted, wondering what the heck just happened?

Well, chances are you made one of these critical mistakes and displayed one of the most common habits that instantly make you uglier.

Here are the 5 habits that instantly make you uglier:

1. How You Talk About Others

Guys, you want to know how to not be ugly and get your crush to like you?

Here's one of the main reasons girls think you are unattractive that you were probably never aware of. When you first start dating a girl, she notices a whole universe of details well beyond just what you look like and how you smell. Of course, looking and smelling nice is important. But, you're giving off far more clues than you realize about what type of guy you really are just by the way you communicate.

Your communication style - the things you choose to talk about, the things you say, the words you use - are all a reflection of how you view and interact with your world. A quick Google Scholar search shows over a million academic research articles concerning the link between communication and personality, way too much information to present here.

But here is the single, most important point: being chronically pessimistic is one of the ugliest things guys can do to turn off any girl quickly.

It's a sure sign of a lack of confidence when the girl you're dating is most likely looking for someone positive, like a rock she can lean on. So, before heading out on that date, make sure to polish not just your shoes but your attitude and communication style, too.

2. Only Speak the Truth

Fellas, wanna know how to be more confident? The first and most important steps are to stop doubting yourself and to stop practicing self-defeating behavior.

And the worst, most self-defeating behavior that no woman will find attractive is lying. And besides, the apparent trust issue that lying poses, lying literally implies that you have something to hide. And super confident guys who are comfortable with themselves don't feel the need to hide who they really are.

And I'm not just talking about lying like an evil villain. I'm talking about all the little white lies guys sometimes share when they're trying to impress someone. Little white lies about how often you go to the gym, when you know you haven't been in months, or that you used to be the Manager at Gamestop, when you know you were just the Assistant Manager or that time you saw a giant bear just ten feet from your tent when the bear was actually a cute little cub, and it was 100 yards away.

Yes, these are harmless, tiny, white lies, but committing yourself to speak the truth forces you into a self-confident mindset, and the more you practice it, the more confident you become.

Every time you speak the truth, it's like you're making small, incremental deposits into your self-worth, and those deposits will add up over the lifetime of a relationship and pay HUGE dividends. And to be clear, no one is saying be a goodie-two-shoes nice guy. In fact, don't be the nice guy.

3. Pay Attention to the Details

Gents, we need to discuss some evident and common knowledge because too many guys are continually coming up short in this all-too-important area. Grooming regularly is essential. You've heard it a hundred times before. But you want to know how to make any girl fall in love?

Well, I'll tell you how.

The devil is in the details, as the saying goes. Yes, you need to shower, shave or trim, wear deodorant, and brush your teeth. Duh. Everybody knows that.

But what you can't forget to address is the little details that are guaranteed to disgust any woman if left neglected. We're talking about the nitty-gritty like your toenails, nose hair, ear hair, upper back hair, shoulder hair, and yep … you guessed it … your manscaping routine.

Because let's be frank, you have a perfectly valiant but formidable goal of taking your clothes off one day, hopefully, in the presence of a woman. And when that moment comes, and the shoes and socks and shirts and all the undergarments start haplessly flying about in a fit of romance, the absolute last thing a woman wants to see is a gnarly shovel of a toenail or a fuzzy moss patch where a shoulder should be.

Makes sense?

So make sure to set yourself up for 100% success by regularly grooming 100% of your body. Practicing thorough grooming habits are one of the habits women love. Hey guys, real quick, if you could stop trimming your nose hair for just a second.

4. Trim the Hedges

Back to the topic of grooming, we have to pay some special attention to and briefly tiptoe through some sensitive subject matter. Yes, fellahs, I'm talking about your manscaping habits.

Don't have a manscaping routine to speak of? Well, that's probably a problem you need to address immediately. Even if you're the long-hair-just-don't-care Jason Momoa type, the let-the-drapes-match-the-curtains attitude is one of the fastest ways to turn off any woman.

Back to our strongly recommended 100% grooming strategy, this is one area that should not be neglected.

While there may be those women out there with enormous hearts, who are willing and able to love even the mangiest of beasts, most women are much going to prefer a groomed and well-behaved purebred over a shaggy and unruly hound … if you catch my drift.

Do you know what I mean? Ya pickin' up what I'm puttin' down?

So if you don't already include this unmentionable weed patch in your grooming maintenance routine, you should. Because, in this case, out of sight should not mean out of mind.

5. Always Have a Minty Fresh Plan

Ever heard someone say that something left a bad taste in their mouth? Well, it's a figure of speech, of course. But I'm a little more literal with this one. Ever wonder what are the most unattractive things guys do? I think you know where I'm heading with this one.

Yep, it's to leave a bad taste in her mouth literally. Think about. You put in all the hard work. You dress nice, you smell nice, you dazzled her with your tantalizing conversation and made her giggle with your clever quips.

And then, at the end of the night, you lean in for a bit of smoocheroo and … Ah! You repulse her and send a shock to her gag reflexes with your dragon breath.

And that's the last impression you leave her with at the end of the night. All that hard work you did up until that point quickly fades away. The last impression is the lasting impression, as the saying goes. So what's the solution?

It's really simple. Make sure you end the night on a high note and always be prepared.

It's the 21st century, and there are literally hundreds of on-the-go mouthcare solutions - mints, gums, pocket-sized mouthwash. It doesn't matter what you choose, just as long as you have a plan.

The Absolute Worst Habit that Instantly Makes You Uglier

We asked Robin, our girl resident dating expert about her worst dating nightmare. It might be a little surprising but she said that her worst dating nightmare is being stuck on a date with someone who is totally boring - even if that guy was super hot.

See, a super hot but boring guy is like having a hot guy poster on your wall. It's nice to look at, but that's about it. If you really want to know one of the worst habits that instantly makes you uglier, it's being suffocatingly boring.

And unfortunately, more and more guys are becoming painfully boring. It's getting harder and harder to find a fun, lively guy these days.

But the best way to avoid being mind-numbingly boring is to get out there and live a little. Guys, there's so much pressure on you these days to be super career-driven and financially successful that you allow yourselves to get buried in your career endeavors, and you forget to take time to live your life.

And guys, we totally get it. Even we here at Mantelligence have to stop and remind ourselves to unplug and go live a little.

It's actually our 5th Mantelligence guideline to "turn off your computer, and go make some memories." It's the memories you create when you're not busy at work that will help shape you as a man and provide a wealth of interesting and entertaining stories to keep your dating partners coming back for more.

So let's get out there and do something fun.

In Conclusion

Those are the habits that instantly make you uglier and the single most important piece of advice to remember if you're at all interested in how to not be ugly.
