This post wont be long because I don’t feel like it’ll take that long to explain the concept I’m trying to point out here, but Hygiene and Fit are important traits for a man to take great pride in, sans vanity.
In my lifetime I’ve met various men who:
A) Did not feel like they were confident in themselves, nor could they “game” women, and
B) Felt they were destined to live a life of Doom and Despair and end up akin to the 40 Year old Virgin.
They weren’t, and I was able to help turn their mindsets around and teach them that they can and will get more out of life. It wasn’t easy, but I did it.
But you want to know one of the main crippling factors about all of these men?
I could tell some of them hadn’t showered that day, or brushed their teeth, or I could see food stuck in their teeth, or I could see they were months shy of getting a haircut…. you name it.
The fact of the matter is, not just with women but people in general, good hygiene is essential to interaction with other people. While most people judge you based off of the impression you first give, your hygiene is a big part of that. Do you smell? Does your breath stink? Are your fingernails 6cm long?
All of which can and will be noticed, and they will often change someone’s opinion of you.
Make sure your hygiene is important to you from the minute you wake up to when you go to sleep. Make sure when you wake up in the morning, your FIRST priority is getting in the shower and making sure you’re clean for the day – unless you do exercises and running when you first wake up, in which case I commend you. Make sure when you leave the bathroom your hands are washed, that lazy shit wont cut it.
Make sure you keep your hair cut and trimmed, make sure you at the very least clip your nails regularly, make sure the CLOTHES YOU WEAR FIT. This is one thing that I see people struggle with, but if it goes back to thinking like the rich, and they are more than likely getting their clothes tailored to their body. If you can’t do so, get the next best thing and MAKE SURE YOU TRY ON EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU BUY.
I can’t count how many times I’ve seen someone with a great outfit that doesn’t fit, and it ruins their whole appearance. Every piece of clothing you get should be tried on, examined and inspected to make sure it is a perfect fit for you, and you should not fret over things like taking the time out of your day to try them on – after all if you’re going shopping, you should have the time to make sure you’re properly outfitting yourself.
Now we all get too big for our clothes sometimes, when this happens – sell them.
Places like eBay, Poshmark, Mercari and others make it easy and possible for you to do so, and you should be making enough direct or side income to to supplement a couple new pairs of pants, especially if you’re getting it back.
So remember people, HYGIENE counts, don’t let being lazy and not washing your hands and body, brushing your teeth, and keeping your hair cut and looking nce will all go a long way in making you look like the man!
