We should note, however, that being attractive is more than just having desirable physical attributes – although it is a big part of attractiveness. And with that in mind, here are 17 signs you are a good looking guy;
1. PEOPLE ARE POLITE TO YOU
Table of Contents
Being handsome is probably one of the easiest things to know, especially when you have had your looks for your whole life – but noticing how polite people treat you may not be as obvious or you just may not associate that with how you look. The truth is, people will treat you so much nicer than average-looking people just for the mere fact that you are very attractive. This could be because they want something from you, or they want you to like them and thus be associated with you in some way. If you notice that people all around you are polite, even when they are rude to others, it might be because of your dashing personality or simply because you are an attractive person.
2. PEOPLE ARE MEAN TO YOU
While being an attractive man comes with its perks, it also comes with its pitfalls. On the extreme side of people being nice to you, you will notice that the people around you are mean to you, especially people of your own gender. Yes, other men, when they know or even think you are attractive, will immediately perceive you as a threat to their manhood. They will give you stinker attitudes and make statements that are hurtful and mask them as jokes.
It is not only men, however, who will give you the stinker – women will, too, but for different reasons. When you are an attractive man, women will assume that you have it easy with getting women – so they will be mean to you to set themselves apart and as a way of letting you know that they are not moved by your beauty.
Whatever reason people have behind their dislike of you, it is a sign that they think you are much better looking (than you probably think you are).
3. PEOPLE TRY TO GET CLOSER TO YOU
Another way to know if you are a super handsome man is to notice how people around you act, especially people you have just met. When you notice that people try to get closer to you – physically and otherwise – it is a good indication that you are very attractive and they want to be in your proximity. This can look like asking you if you want to hang out, and asking for your phone number to make plans later. This may translate to you as “I make friends easily” which may be true but it is also attributed to the fact that you are quite the looker and people are attracted to that.
4. YOU TURN HEADS
If you still aren’t convinced and want to know if you are handsome, then just watch what happens the next time you go outside and take a walk. Notice how people turn their heads when you walk past them? Or straight-up stare at you as you pass along as if you have them starstruck? This is the most obvious indicator that you are an attractive man; when people look at you – and no, it’s not because you have broccoli stuck in your teeth!
5. BODY LANGUAGE
Another way to know that you are an attractive man is to watch how people act around you, and this is not in their behavior but rather how their body responds to your presence. It can be a bit tricky to notice subtle body language but knowing what you are looking for may make things easier for you;
- Lips – if you notice that when you talk to people they lick their lips as if to wet them, it is a sign that they find you attractive. If it is not them licking their lips, they may pout (duck lips) or part their lips slightly – these are all indicators of desire, and the more people that do this to you, the more you know that they find you attractive.
- Stance – How people stand when they are with you can also tell you whether or not they find you or think that you are attractive. When you are around men, do they try to mirror you? When you tilt, do they tilt too? If you lean forward (slightly) do they lean towards you? These are all signs that they think you are attractive and they want to be like you so they mirror what you do. When it comes to women, notice how they are standing in relation to their hands, are their hands on their hips and not folded in front of them? If yes, this is called an open stance and it means that their bodies are subconsciously inviting you in, your presence makes them feel at ease and they are open and comfortable being around you.
- Eyes – Raised eyebrows are an indication that people find you attractive. Notice if people’s eyebrows go up and down (suddenly) when you walk up to them or when they see you for the first time, it is a good indicator that you are attractive.
Another way that the eyes can tell if someone finds you attractive is to notice whether or not their pupils dilate when they are talking to or looking at you. Dilated pupils are an indication of attraction.
6. PEOPLE MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH YOU
Another way you can deduce that you are a handsome man is if when you talk to people, they try to make eye contact with you – this is because they want to come off to you as truthful and therefore trustworthy (meaning they care how you perceive them), they are attempting to seem confident, and/or they are trying to determine whether you are trustworthy (and not just good looking). Either way, people making eye contact when they speak with or to you is a good sign and it means that they think you are attractive.
7. PEOPLE VALUE YOUR OPINIONS
If you are a super handsome man, people value what you have to say more often above the opinions of others. In a room full of people, do they turn to you and ask what you think of something that a lot of people are weighing in on? And when you do give your opinion, do you sway a lot of people to agree with you even if you were not trying to? If this happens to you often, you are an attractive man.
8. PEOPLE GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU OUT
One of the most obvious signs you’re an attractive guy is when people go out of their way to help you out when you ask or when you need them to. People are happy to help you because it puts them in your good graces.
9. PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR LIFE
Another way to know that you are a handsome guy is when people are curious about your life and they ask you questions about yourself. This is because they are trying to get to know you – usually to determine if your physical attractiveness matches on the inside as well. Depending on the type of questions, they may be trying to see if you have desirable qualities within you and that you are not merely a pretty face.
10. PEOPLE ARE SHOCKED WHEN YOU SPEAK OF YOUR INSECURITIES
People don’t think that extremely good looking men have insecurities, so the next time you say out loud that you don’t like a physical attribute about yourself and the people around you look at you like you are a mad man, just know that they think you are an attractive man and it never occurred to them that you, too, may have insecurities.
11. YOU ARE CONFIDENT
Aside from all the physical attributes that make a man handsome, one of the best characteristics of a handsome man is confidence. You can be physically handsome but if you lack confidence, you will not be perceived as attractive and you will go unnoticed in most social situations. Confidence boosts up your attractiveness and makes you stand out in a crowd.
12. YOU HAVE STYLE
You know you are a handsome man when people are always complimenting you on how you look or smell. Style is personal and once you have found yours, you will elevate your game to a hundred.
13. YOU ARE SINGLE
How to tell if you are a good looking guy? If you are usually single. As counterintuitive as this sounds, when you are extremely good-looking people will assume that you are already in a relationship and therefore will not approach you with romantic intentions and as a result, you will find yourself perpetually single.
On the other hand, you may have opportunities to get into relationships but people just never take you seriously or they don’t think your intentions are pure.
14. YOU NEVER GET COMPLIMENTS
A dead giveaway that you are a very handsome guy is that you never get any compliments. This is because people always assume that you know how good-looking you are and so they never give you any compliments because your beauty is quite obvious.
15. PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE A PLAYER
Another way to know if you are handsome is when you hear people tell you what a player they think you are. Your mothers’ friends always comment on what a heartbreaker you are, and girls always jokingly say you are a player or “bad news”. This comes from the societal notion that good-looking people have options and thus they play the field larger than average-looking people. So the next time people assume you go around breaking hearts, just know they think you are absolutely stunning.
16. PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED AT YOUR INTELLIGENCE AND/OR OTHER TALENTS
The notion that if someone is pretty then they must be dumb is mostly associated with women (thanks to years of poor portrayal in the media) however, the same applies to really handsome guys, too. People assume that if you are good-looking, you have nothing else to offer in terms of personality, talents, or even intelligence. So when you notice that people are often surprised at your knowledge and intelligence, chances are they think you are too good-looking to be knowledgeable.
17. PEOPLE ASSUME YOU ARE A NICE PERSON
And last but not least, another one of the most obvious signs you’re an attractive guy is when everyone assumes you are nice – especially when they first meet you. This is known as the halo effect – a psychological view that states that your perception of a person (in this case) influences how you view them in other aspects of life. Therefore, an attractive person is assumed to be gentle and kind by others just because of their outward appearance.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is considered handsome?
There are a lot of characteristics that make up a handsome man, the big three, however, are hair, height, and eye color. Tall men with blue eyes and dark hair are perceived as more handsome than any other type of man, hence the ‘tall, dark, and handsome’ trope. However, the definition of handsome differs from culture to culture. In the United States, for example, where most of the beauty standards are eurocentric, symmetry plays a big role when determining whether or not someone is handsome.
