Everyone knows the easy ways to be attractive: smile bright, make eye contact and exude confidence. But did you know that there are some more unusual ways to grab the attention of the person you desire?

Here are 9 weird ways that science says you can attract another person.

Eating Celery

It’s crunchy, delicious and good for your teeth, but can it help you get a date? One group of researchers from Australia says yes, if you’re a guy.¬†They found that munching on celery releases a male hormone called androstenene, a scent that is detected by people looking for love.

Wearing Dark Lipstick

If you’re a woman, you can hold a man’s attention by wearing dark lipstick.

Lips are a sensual part of the body and can cause others to feel attraction. One study showed that when a man first meets a woman, he spends a lot of time looking at her lips. The darker her lipstick, the longer he looks.

Smelling Like Ylang Ylang

Scent plays a huge role in romantic attraction, and some of this is due to the unconscious tendency to seek out pheromones when finding a potential mate.

One scent that has been proven to attract romantic attention is ylang ylang. Dilute this essential oil with a carrier like coconut oil and rub it onto your neck and wrists. You can also diffuse it into the air when someone special is coming to visit.

Seeing a Scary Movie

Ignite attraction by dragging your date to a horror flick.

When you experience strong emotions, you find yourself drawn to the person sharing the experience. Horror movies are designed to make you jump, scream and feel intense apprehension. These are all feelings that can translate into sexual arousal and probably will if you have someone appropriate nearby.

Wearing the Letter T

T is the sexiest letter in the alphabet according to research conducted at Nottingham Trent University. The study found that women were more likely to rate men as attractive when they were wearing a letter T across their shirts. They were not considered as attractive when the T was upside-down.

The scientists concluded that the capital T accentuates a broad shouldered and smaller waist in a man’s build. This is subconsciously read as strength and the ability to provide protection.

Snacking on Figs

Figs have historically been known as a food that will get you in the mood for love. It’s been suggested that this is because the shape and consistency could remind people of female sex organs, but there are scientific reasons as well. Figs contain an amino acid that helps increase blood flow to all parts of the body, and they contain magnesium which is useful in creating libido boosting hormones.

Riding a Roller Coaster

Simply riding a roller coaster can make people seem more attractive. This was confirmed by a study in Archives of Sexual Behavior. Researchers grabbed random roller coaster riders before and after experiencing the coaster. They showed the riders pictures of average looking people and asked them to rate their attractiveness. The same pictures got much higher ratings from people who had just stepped off the roller coaster.

It turns out that this response is true of any activity that excites and pumps adrenaline to your body. So taking your date to an amusement park is a great idea.

Dressing in Red

Wearing red can make you instantly more attractive. Both men and women rate people in red as more attractive than the same people in other colors.

The effect is subconscious, so scientists don’t really know why red plays such a part in romance. Many guess that it’s because red is a color that makes you appear strong, powerful and confident.

Other studies have found that people even view themselves in a more positive light when they are wearing red.

Being Kind

Your mother was right. Being kind does make you more attractive, and a Chinese study proved that it’s true.

Participants in the study were shown pictures of various people and asked if the people were attractive. Other participants were shown the same pictures but given the information that the person was also kind. The people who were perceived as kind were consistently rated more attractive than people assigned to other qualities.

So go ahead and be a helpful, caring person. And do it in front of your date if possible.

These 9 activities may seem like they have nothing to do with romantic attraction, but they do. Your physical beauty can only take you so far. Start adding some of these habits to your life to catch the eye and heart of someone special.
