Today I’m going to talk about the ideal masculine look in its physicality and appearance since I’ve already talked about what makes a true man in the character spectrum of the thing.
So what are the things that define a true manly, masculine appearance on a man? Let’s see them together.
Masculine Look, Muscles & Fat Percentage
One thing that undoubtedly makes or breaks a man’s looks is his fat percentage, now, don’t start crying on me if you’re chubby and want to lose that fat so you can start to look like a true man (or woman) because I just solved your problems with my amazing Fitness Guide for dummies, so check it out if you need assistance with that. Why is that so though? well the reason is simple, the less fat you have on your body, the more your natural masculine traits will shine!
Take your jawline as example, less overall body fat means a squared and well-defined jawline, or your abs! with less fat your stomach is flat and your abs will look more ripped, and we all know that dad bods ARE NOT sexy at all, right? then, the leaner you are, the more your veins will “pop out” and girls will love you, there are countless benefits related to looks when it comes to being a low fat individual.
Then there’s muscles, men were meant to be muscular and lean because they always engaged in demanding physical activities unlike their soft and gracious female counterparts, thus making it become the staple look of a healthy man. Being muscular will make you look more masculine, strong and attractive, your goal here is the V-taper kind of body, large shoulders, slim waist! come on, do you really think that a skinny guy with toothpicks as arms will be considered more masculine than a man who has his biceps looking like mighty guns? weakness is not a masculine trait.
Hair, Beards & Such
Ideally, another feature of a true masculine look is hair density, having flowing luscious hair and a rigorous beard (even body and chest hair!) is a sign of health and manliness, but not everyone is blessed with hair\beard genetics, in fact lots of men go bald or look like a baby trying to put on a beard with a permanent marker, yikes. Though this can somewhat be supported by changing your lifestyle into a more active, healthier one, so your testosterone levels will bump up and trigger some hair growth, not every man in the end will be able to be a burly hairy werewolf and that’s fine, work with what you have, that’s the best way of going about things.
Okay, but what about his smile? the masculine look bingo card wouldn’t be complete without this aspect of a man, is your smile weak, void of personality, awkward or even forced? that’s not very masculine. A “masculine smile” it’s usually very charismatic and enveloping, magnetic almost, I’ve included a man’s smile in this because it’s actually a very powerful signature of a man that conveys confidence and masculinity, when it comes to one’s looks it’s a way of proving how comfortable a man is with his expression of all he is through something simple as a smile.
Gaze, Eye Contact & Technicalities
This, like the smile, is one of the major things that characterize the masculine look, the eyes of a man. Believe it or not your eyes can communicate a whole lot of things, depending on how you use them, usually your average weak ass guy doesn’t take advantage of his eyes not because he doesn’t want to, but because he can’t.
You see, eyes and confidence are interlinked, a man who’s not confident and doesn’t feel enough of a man won’t be capable of maintaining eye contact with another person with confidence, for example, his stare will not communicate or arouse anything in another’s person psyche because it’s weak at its core thus wasting the potential of those eyes, a man who’s confident in his masculinity and himself instead will use his eyes accordingly by naturally maintaining eye contact when speaking to people, will let those eyes tell stories of magic and wisdom while keeping a veil of mystery upon it all, the latter are the kind of eyes that when people look into them see the universe and will keep them wondering about the depth of this man, making them feel like they NEED to know what he’s thinking, is almost as though you can feel the “weight” of such eyes, and that’s very manly because your eyes can subconsciously communicate your essence to another.
As you can see the difference lays in how the bearer of such looks utilize them also, not just in the looks themselves, this should make you hopeful because some things you can’t change, but other you can improve.
