Can't seem to land a relationship? When it comes to meeting your next conquest, we could all do with a little help. And perhaps all you need is a few handy tips to help you get your groove on. Below are some methods that science says will help you become more attractive to the opposite sex.

Develop A Good Sense Of Humor

Funny people are smart, and smart is sexy. Research has shown that women like men who make them laugh, while men like women who laugh at their jokes.

Playing Hard To Get

Want to increase someone’s interest in you? It might be worthwhile to make sure they find out if you’re interested in them. This idea is affirmed by studying the effectiveness of “playing hard to get.” You need to establish that you’re hard to get in general, yet also very enthusiastic about the person you want to be with.

The Way You Talk

Arthur Aron, a psychologist at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, states that exchanging emotional, personal information helps promote powerful feelings of connection. And it is these instant connections that were found to be more powerful than many long-term, even lifelong relationships.

Ditch The Pick Up Lines

Not only does doing this make you sound lame, studies have shown that when a woman is very attracted to a man, whether his pickup line is good or not doesn’t matter at all. Take heed that this mostly applies to ladies looking for a short-term fling.

Know Yourself

Depending on your level of conscientiousness, your personality can play a big role in the type of relationships you have. Agreeable, conscientious people make better spouses and parents, while disagreeable, non-conscientious people have more sex partners. The former would rather invest in quality, while the latter make up the difference by getting as much as they can. So if you want to come across as marriage material, you need to  be organized, easy to get along with and have your life more or less figured out.
