Part of the problem of approaching the question of how to be attractive to men is the fact that so often the question itself seems a sign of misogyny, objectification and sexism.
Millennia of women being ‘sold off’ to men will do that. Arranged marriages, dowries that put women on par with chattel, how to make a guy like you double standards and an absurd amount of novels and media dealing with ‘marriageability’ or how to be sexy ‘for him’ will have a way of provoking the collective ire of feminists and, indeed, evolved human beings as a whole.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Yes, all of those dangers are very real possibilities and, in the gender politics of today, still a living, waking, often nightmarish reality. Still, human beings are social creatures, and it’s only natural to want to be liked by others.
