How Adrenaline Makes You More Attractive To Women

 Adrenaline can make you more attractive to women

I recently came across an interesting article that summarizes a number of studies showing how adrenaline influences attraction in a positive manner.

Whether going out meeting women, first dating, or keeping a relationship alive, you can use this information in order to improve the attraction that is going on.

Now, please note… while many not so attractive guys are able to attract much better looking women (look around, it happens quite a bit… and definitely much more than the reverse), they often do this with their charm, knowledge, status/power, sense of humor… or other talents — $$$.

But in some cases, there’s just nothing you can do. No amount of adrenaline will make you attractive to a woman who likes 6 foot tall black men with beards if you are a 5’4″ Asian with no facial hair (or vice versa! There’s a type for everybody!).

BUT… this is some knowledge that can better stack the chips in your favor if your foot is at least in the door already.

Arousal From Fear & Anxiety Can Produce An Increase in Attraction

Studies have shown that adrenaline caused by fear can actually increase attraction to the opposite sex.

In the “Love at First Fright” study carried out by Meston & Frohlich in 2003, both males and females waiting in line to ride a rollercoaster, and upon exiting the rollercoaster, were shown images of fairly attractive individuals of the opposite sex. The scores of attractiveness of the image were higher on average from persons leaving the rollercoaster — after having gone on the frightening ride and having their adrenaline levels spike — compared to persons who had not yet ridden.

Cohen, Waugh, and Place (1989) researched couples’ attraction at a movie theater. They noticed that couples leaving exhilarating suspense movies exhibited more romantic behavior (touching, talking) compared to couples who had just seen low-arousing movies.

In another study, by Dutton and Aron (1989), two groups were shown the same video by a “teacher”. One group was told it was a real life situation, while the other was told it was role playing. The group that believed it was real felt all sorts of emotions, squirming, laughing nervously, etc. The group that knew it wasn’t real didn’t experience much emotions, at least not as strong as a response, as would be expected.

But what’s interesting is that, at the end of the study, the group was asked to judge the attractiveness of the teacher. The group that saw the “real life situation” judged the presenter to be much more attractive than the group that hadn’t received such a strong arousal response.

The Adrenaline from Exercise & Competitive Games Boosts Attraction

Sinclair, Hoffman, Mark, Martin, and Pickering (1994) conducted a study on two groups, one who had been seated / inactive, and another that had been exercising. The researchers then provided the subjects with several questions, asking them about their opinions on members of the opposite sex, but also images of beautiful scenery and other aesthetically pleasing imagery.

The group that had exercised had much more positive impressions of the members of the opposite sex, as well as better enjoying the beautiful imagery then the group who had not performed any exercise.

While adrenaline plays a role here, it’s also possible that extra dopamine produced during exercise provides a boost as well. Several other exercise = adrenaline = attraction studies have been carried out, showing that the more adrenaline produced, the higher the attraction.

Meanwhile, in another study (Lewandowski and Aron, 2004), males and females who didn’t know each other were partnered up, and asked before commencing to rate their partner’s attractiveness. The “couples” were then split into groups, with some playing high competition / high arousal games and others group playing low competition / low arousal games.

The partners that took part in the high competition / high arousal games were found to have an INCREASE in the attraction felt for their partner… compared to how they originally felt about them at baseline.

Using This Information Practically in Dating and To Keep The Flames Alive in a Long Term Relationship

Keeping attraction in long term relationship

Now that you know that fear and anxiety increase adrenaline in a beneficial way to your attraction, you can try and make a first date to a horror movie, or haunted house (if that time of year). Suspense movies should do as well. This should also help spark some more attraction if you’re in a long term relationship (LTR).

As in the scenario with the teacher demonstrating the films where students believed the situations were real life, if you can keep your cool in a scenario where emotions run high (like a teacher), you may be seen as more attractive… in other words, man up and maintain control when it counts.

Using exercise to increase adrenaline, and therefore boost attraction, is a real easy idea to integrate into your life / dating. That cute girl you’ve been trying to figure out a first date for? Ask her to go for a run! Same goes if you and your wife have been at a low point for a while.

And while at it… whoop her ass in a race! The competition and games was shown to have a beneficial effect… (I’ve personally used this with excellent results).

Or just take her out to anywhere else where you can have some friendly competition… mini-golf, go carts… and don’t go too easy! The intense competition yields better results!

And remember, this should provide benefits both to new love interests, and longer-burning flames.
