Let me ask you something: When another woman walks into a party and your guy looks at her, what do you do?
Do you turn your head, look her from head to toe and make a catty remark about her tacky outfit?
(“I love how her throwback 80s outfit isn’t doing anything for her figure” or “There’s a reason why they’re called ‘skinny jeans’ – maybe she’s trying to be ironic.”)
Or do you act like you didn’t even see her at all?
You know where I’m going with this, right?
If you want to show your man you have confidence with a capital “C”, you can’t show weakness by acting threatened by other women.
Guys are can smell insecurity a mile away, so you’re not going to win any points trying to bring down that girl he’s looking at.
Besides, men are always going to look, whether they’re single or not.
It’s not that they can’t be faithful or they don’t love their partners, but any red-blooded guy has a built-in radar he can’t turn off, so it will always pick up a girl in his field of vision.
(Ok, so maybe ogling is a different thing, which you should call him out on. But otherwise, play it cool.)
But human nature aside, keeping your composure and acting like it’s no big deal is going to make your man want you even MORE.
No matter how tempting it is to make a “funny” remark about another girl’s appearance within his earshot, you’d better save it for your girlfriends instead.
As far as he’s concerned, you’ll take YOURSELF down a notch with your own words.
Here’s a thought: let that other girl have her 15 seconds of attention. Once he’s done looking, he’ll be impressed that you weren’t at all fazed by some random stranger.
This might seem like a small thing, but it actually reflects your general attitude and self-assurance. The needy girl would react to another woman’s presence to get his guy to assure him she’s prettier.
But if you don’t acknowledge her existence in the first place? That means you’re plenty confident with what you’ve got.
Above all, you don’t need any guy to remind you of that fact. So when Miss Hoochie Pants walks past your guy, bite your tongue and stay classy.
It’s especially hard to keep it together in this day and age when there’s a deluge of Photoshopped models wherever you look. But don’t let those magazine covers and billboards rattle you one bit.
Cliché as it sounds, external beauty can only go so far in holding a guy’s attention on a long-term basis. Making the ideal relationship happen is about connecting with him in a way that goes beyond looks.
