9. Just be confident — looks matter, but not that much
If we’re going to start believing the beauty magazines, we might as well borrow this statistic: Glamour claims, “78% of men would rather date a confident plus-size woman than an insecure supermodel.” Every man wants to be with a beautiful woman. It’s just that if she’s a bundle of insecurities wrapped in some aesthetic appeal, that beauty seems to wane. It’s an odd occurrence, but personality and confidence make a woman physically sexier. The way we perceive women is generally how they perceive themselves. Lots of confidence? Très sexy. Lots of complaining and fishing for validation? Not so much.
