What do girls like?
Every guy in the world has asked this question (and many of them still don't know!)
Well good news for you... You've come to the right place to find out!
In this article we'll tell you about what do girls like to talk about, what they like in a guy, what they like to hear, and in general...
What they like.
I recommend reading through all of these 7 best things to find your absolute favorites... but if you’re looking for something specific, you can click the links below to jump to that section:
7 Best Things That Girls Like
There are a few absolutes when it comes to what do girls like. What does that mean?
It means that most girls like a lot of the same things. Take a look.
1. They Like to Be Chased
Have you ever been talking to a girl for a couple of weeks or more when she suddenly seems less interested?
She may not be interested, but she also might be throwing out signs she wants you to chase her.
They can be hard to miss, so here are a few to look out for:
Sign #1: She Makes an Effort to Talk to You
Whether she says hi to you in the halls at school, or she always texts you first, if she puts in the effort to let you know she exists...
… She REALLY wants you to chase her.
Sign #2: You Have Meaningful Conversations
If the two of you haven't made it clear you're interested in each other and talking to her is easier than riding a bike, there's a good chance she's actually interested and you're just not realizing it.
Sign #3: She Lingers
If she hangs around when you're not able to give her your full attention (talking to a teacher or friend), take the hint. She wants to spend more time with you.
2. Social Media
Whether it's Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, or Vine (RIP), girls love taking pictures and videos and posting them on the internet.
And you should too! Let me explain...
It's no secret that getting those likes has a psychological effect on our brains. And when we get a lot, it feels good.
And who gets the most likes out of anyone on the internet? Attractive girls.
Which means that knowing how to flirt with a girl over facebook won't hurt your chances (at the very least, it's let her know you exist.)
Sending her some funny pics or videos on Snapchat is also an easy way to get her to think about you and find you hilarious (just don't send an excessive amount unless she reciprocates.)
And of course, if you're feeling confident, drop her a DM and start a conversation if you don't have her number.
3. Guys Who Look Good
Rule #1: Be attractive. Rule #2: Don't be unattractive.
And yes, I understand...
You're only as good as your genes, which for some guys, aren't the greatest. (But that doesn't mean you still can't look good!)
Because with a little bit of work, you can instantly have a more attractive face. Here are a few tips to get you started:
Tip #1: Grow Your Face Fur
I prefer the 5 o' clock shadow because, well... It's sexy.
And I know a guy who has a cleft palate and grew a mustache, which does a decent job of hiding it.
If all else fails, a full beard will cover any imperfections, but if you can't grow one, no worries!
Try another option, like...
Tip #2: Moisturize and Cleanse
The cool thing about cleansers like Tiege Hanley's Face Wash is that if you use them properly, they help get rid of acne and black heads.
Plus, using a moisturizer (all over your body) ensures that when a girl is ready to get up close and personal with you...
She has a smooth and sexy man to cling to.
Tip #3: Make Yourself Look Smarter
Use glasses! Even if you don't need them, they cover your face (which can hide unsightly blemishes.)
And besides, they make you look like a guy who knows what he's talking about.
4. Being Flirty
People like to be noticed, especially girls (why do you think they put so much effort into looking good?)
And knowing how to flirt with a girl is a surefire way to make sure she feels like someone is noticing.
Because when you flirt with a girl, you're giving her all of your attention. You're working to make her smile, laugh, and generally have a good time.
And if you're good at it, you'll succeed in that endeavor... And she'll find you irresistible for it.
It just takes practice (and following that blue link.)
Girls like to be spoiled, but I know...
You don't want to feel like you're constantly pampering her and getting nothing in return.
And that's why you should (occasionally) do something nice for her (no need to overdo it. Then it becomes expected and you don't have that kind of money.)
Is she having a bad day? Let her know you're thinking about her and ask if there's any way you can help.
It's non-invasive, doesn't come on too strong, and is a small gesture that REALLY goes a long way.
Because if you want to get the girl and keep her, you have to put in a little bit of effort.
6. Style, Style, Style
Here's a scenario:
Guy A is wearing Camo shorts, a baggy T-Shirt, and flip flops. "Guy B" is wearing a fitted button down shirt, some pressed khakis, and clean white shoes.
Who would a girl rather be seen in public with?
You HAVE to know how to dress yourself, guys.
And one way to get there is by following these style rules every man should know.
7. The Self-Improvement Machine
While French fries are delicious, no girl is interested in a couch potato (especially a crusty one found between the cushions.)
So get off your butt and at the very least, take a walk.
Because if you're not working to be a better man, you'll only stay right where you are. You might even backtrack!
Something I read on the internet is that you should have three hobbies:
1 to make you money
1 to keep you in shape
1 to keep you creative
Mine are: Writing dating advice for guys, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and making music. I'm not great at all three but every day I get a little better, and that's why I keep doing them.
So get a hobby or three. Girls like it and it'll help you build confidence (which girls also like!).
7 Things Guys Do That Girls Like
7. Fridge Optimization
Let’s start simple.
At some point, you’re going to have a girl over to your place, and when she’s there, you’re gonna want to make her feel comfortable. You’ll offer her something to drink, only to realize that unless she wants pickle juice or ketchup... You’ve got nothing to give her.
It’s time to move past the dorm-room approach to grocery shopping and stock your fridge like a grown up. You don’t have to go crazy, but always having a few essentials on deck shows her that you can take care of yourself and since you have food at home, you’ll automatically start saving money and eating healthier.
Not bad right? What’s good for you is also one of the easiest-to-accomplish things guys do that girls like.
6. Try… Just a Little
Men have a... complicated relationship with their appearance. Most guys want to look good, but don’t want to look like they care too much.
Well, we’re gonna lay it all out there: there’s nothing wrong with caring about your look, and there’s no shame in putting some effort into it!
Making sure you smell nice and look good shows self respect and lets you express your personality. And one of the most important aspects of your appearance is your crumb catcher, your soup strainer, your man makeup… your beard.
Whether you keep it stubbly, sculpt it like Tony Stark, or let it flow in the breeze, a well kept beard results in a much more kissable face and shows you respect yourself.
That’s where our friends at Brio can help you out, their rechargeable Beardscape trimmer has 8 guard lengths and is the quietest, most durable trimmer on the market. That means you can keep your mug rug looking the way you like it using just one tool.
The Brio Beardscape trimmer makes a weekly trim easy, so your face foliage will never be overgrown.
Brio is so confident ladies will love the effort you put into your look, they’re giving Mantelligence viewers a sweet (albeit limited time) discount. Check out the code in the description below.
5. Share the Spotlight
If you’ve been with Mantelligence for a while you know how important it is to have confidence.
So what’d you do?
You went out and picked ya up a batch-a-the-old confidence. You just went and you picked it right up. Then you got some more, and some more, and now...
You’ve got confidence-levels so sky high, so untamed... that you’re teetering on the brink of spilling into complete arrogance.
It’s a real risk. Look, confidence is and will always be cool. But all arrogance does, is make you seem desperate for confidence.
So how do you balance out this little pickle you got yourself in?
First, don’t be the nice guy… And second, you’ve got to share the confidence with others. Specifically, share it with your girl. Hand her the keys from time to time and let her feel the confidence that you feel.
Remember... her interests, worries, victories, and struggles are just as important as yours. And by showing real interest in her life and shining the spotlight on her... You show her you’re confident enough to realize the world doesn’t revolve around you, which is one of the biggest things guys do that girls like.
4. Know Your Strengths… and Weaknesses
The key to success, in life and in romance, is knowing yourself. That means finding your strengths and using them, but it also means recognizing your weaknesses and dealing with them.
So, what does that look like?
Let’s say your girl is better at parallel parking than you (yes, it happens). You could cling to your pride and insist on driving downtown, spend 15 minutes trying to park, and arrive at the restaurant irritated and embarrassed. Or, you could be big enough to let her take the wheel and get on with having a great night.
There’s no greater turn-on for women than watching a man do what he does best, but there’s no greater turn-off than a guy insisting he’s good at something he’s not.
3. Give Character Compliments
Look, telling a girl she’s pretty/beautiful/hot/sexy doesn’t show a ton of originality, and doesn’t really set you apart from any other guy off the street.
I mean, OK, a girl wants to hear she’s pretty, but you’ve got to keep in mind, just about every guy who ever flirted with her told her she looked good within the first five minutes.
So what do you do?
Use this one-two punch to get girls to chase you: First of all, assume a girl thinks you think she’s pretty. Let it remain unspoken. If she doesn’t know, she’ll figure it out.
Second, if you’re going to rely on direct compliments, do it with what’s called character compliments.
Tell her how much you appreciate her optimism, how you admire her compassion, or how you’re inspired by her intelligence. Things like that. Character compliments show her you think of her as more than a pretty face and are much more meaningful, probably genuine, and memorable form of flattery.
2. Get Real
If you’ve ever been in a relationship longer than a week... You know that the beginning stages can be a little awkward. Not in a bad way, but in a way that holds things back while you and your new girl figure each other out.
From the first date to even the first few months, most of our time is spent peeling back the layers of the other person. Because the truth is, most people are not as put-together, clean, or outgoing, as they say they are in the beginning.
It’s sort of an unspoken rule: Relationships are a process of walking back from the expectations you set upfront.
It’s natural! And we think, the sooner you can rip off the bandaid and get real, the sooner she’ll realize that you’re not like the other guys.
Not in a relationship? Want to know how to get any woman you want? Check out this vid.
You know in the movies when the loveable goofball with no plans or ambition ends up with an amazing girl? It turns out... that only works in Hollywood.
Real women want a guy who thinks ahead and who thinks things through. She wants to see that you’re working on yourself and taking steps to achieve your goals. That doesn’t mean you can’t occasionally spend a weekend on the couch, but a man who knows what he wants and goes out and gets it beats a couch potato ten times out of ten.
So strategize about your future and she’ll be daydreaming about being a part of it.
Oh and PS: Doing this is also one of the easiest ways to make ANY girl fall in love with you.
What Do Ladies Love To Talk About
Girls are just like guys in that they'll talk about anything if they're comfortable with you.
Of course, thinking of things to talk about with a girl doesn't always come easy.
If you're just getting to know her, she doesn't want to talk about love yet (but you can ask her if she's ever been in love.)
In the getting-to-know-you stage, girls like to talk about their passions and hobbies, the happier moments of their past, crazy adventures they've had, and their hopes and dreams for the future.
Talking about those things is literally how you get to know her.
As time goes on and you become more comfortable with each other, the topics get a little deeper.
Girls who are super into you will want to talk about their sexual kinks, what love means to them, what they need for a relationship to work, the emotional scars of their past, and a future with you in it. (They may not like talking about the scars, but if a girl tells you them, she REALLY trusts you.)
Those are just a few things to talk about with a girl. Follow that link for even more useful information.
What Do Women Want To Hear
Remember 5 from above? Girls like feeling special, and while you can make her feel that way with your actions...
… Your words are just as powerful (possibly even more powerful.)
Don Miguel Ruiz said in his book, The Four Agreements, "Be impeccable with your word."
What does that mean?
It means you need to choose your words wisely and use them (in his words) for truth and love, not gossip or for hurting others.
So when you're trying to think of sweet things to say to a girl, they better come from the heart...
… Because if they don't, she'll see right through you.
If you like the way her hair looks, tell her.
If you're proud of her for working out every day of the week, lift her spirits and tell her you see a change (even if you actually don't.)
If you disagree with something she says or does, tell her. It shows her you have values and you're not afraid to stand up for them.
Girls like honesty (but a white lie won't hurt if it makes her feel good.)
And of course, if you need more compliments for girls, just follow the link.
