No one likes to be around people who are spacey, narcissistic or downright delusional. Being aware of how you present yourself makes you more relatable, and more date-able. But truly poised women are not wholly preoccupied with what others think of them; they are much more focused on how they view themselves. Here are 10 things about self-aware women that make them more attractive.
They don’t have time for fake people
Women who value themselves also value their time. They don’t waste it on unfulfilling relationships.
They are shrewd social media users
Social media is like dessert; it’s really hard to live without, but too much can be gross. Self-aware women get the most out of their online presences without over-doing it.
They can laugh at themselves
“I’m really into girls without a sense of humor,” said no one, ever. Women who don’t take themselves too seriously are much more fun to be around.
Their confidence comes from within
Self-assured women don’t seek validation from others. They get that they are awesome but they don’t need to show off about it.
They have their priorities straight
Self-awareness means seeing the big picture, choosing what’s important in your own life and going after it. Determination is sexy, so is independence.
They know their own shortcomings
Big egos are never attractive. Everyone has room for growth, and recognizing that makes you a healthier friend, co-worker and partner.
They are compassionate
A big part of being self-aware is being mindful of what’s going on around you. Women who take time to learn about issues that don’t necessarily affect them are better able to understand where they fit in the world.
They are good listeners
Self-aware women acknowledge that sometimes it’s more important to listen than to be heard.
They practice self-care
Women who take care of themselves notice more, are more accessible and are more reliable.
They know how to self-advocate
Self-awareness is about realizing your worth. Self-aware women ask for what they believe they deserve, and are respected more because of it.
