Nowadays our society is incredibly concentrated on the mental picture that we have of ourselves, both external and internal. Yet, the world has turned into an expensive catwalk, where physical appeal has pulled that inner beauty aside back into the dark attic. We’re quick to judge one another based on the way we look and oftentimes we tend to forget that simplicity is the most beautiful thing.

A discussion took place on Reddit started by the user u/kushnair, asking fellow readers—"what are the simplest things to do that make you look attractive?" The post received 41,700 upvotes, 12,600 comments and over 100 awards, where users shared their opinions about what simple things attract them in their potential partner.

How a person treats living beings smaller and weaker than themselves, tells a lot about the persons character.

Self roasts don't count in my opinion, as they're not targeting/hurting somebody else. Alsi, I like people who don't take themselves too seriously very much.

Fair point, and if you're able to grow a short full beard that makes it better imo.

Online Thread Has Folks Pointing Out Simple Things That Can Make People Look More Attractive, And Here Are 30 Of The Best Ones Keep your appearance neat. I used to work retail and I noticed that people treated me WAY better when my hair was cut and my beard was trimmed, which was like 10% of the time because I worked two jobs and my hair grows so fast I couldn't keep up with it. So when I cleaned myself up, I really noticed the change in how people treated me.

All the clowns play charades to seem to be someone they are not. That's why watching people go by is so much fun; it's a constant flow of delusional people who think that they are the epitome of fashion and beauty.

i firmly took this advice when i was in university. threw a dinner party for my friends (because they were my friends, not just because i was trying to impress the women), served a chocolate cheesecake for dessert, got met with a chorus of "oh wow, you would be dangerous to date!" well, hmm, time for a rethink ;)

I got a different cut a couple months ago and the first comment I got was from a lovely Korean gal at the local convenience store and she said, “you look more handsome since the last time I saw you!”. It’s given me a bit more confidence.

What people consider nice hair is highly subjective, so I can't get fully on board with this one. I've seen many people call black people who wear their hair in their natural texture, in braids, or in dreadlocks "ghetto" and "unkempt," and those people can go ahead and kick rocks. Don't give a hoot what they think.

Believe that you look attractive. If you act like it, people will believe it alongside you.

Humans act by mimicking others.

If you can’t get yourself to believe your attractive, do what you need to do so you can believe it.

Learn a skill. Find a hobby you love and learn to be really good at it. Especially if it's something you can share or enrich other people's lives with. Like cooking, playing an instrument, gardening, woodworking, knitting, drawing, etc.

I think it’s more important to have the passion for something than to have to be “really good” at something. Hobbies and passion should be enjoyable and not necessarily a competition.
