I'm probably missing something (or 3 things :) ), but if openess is the main sign of attractiveness to a guy, then why is the advice for women to tilt their heads and play with their hair and then look away - instead of just themselves going over and just talking to the guy?
wendeln92 (13 days ago)
I found the part(s) when they are talking about what men find attractive about women - while some of the gestures are pretty much accurate, the actual physical attractiveness of women, or which women men finds attractive is something many women just don't get. I have been in many situation where women are talking about how attractive a certain woman is and I just didn't see it, yet the one they thought was not attractive, or rather plain, I found very attractive and it didn't have anything to do with hair flipping, looking submissive, how she did her hair or make up or clothes, etc.. It had more to do with an apparent sweet disposition, and evidence of being a kind hearted person....but then I woke up and remembered most of that is usually part of an act.

Have you explored when it is not good to be attractive to men? For instance I feel that the host is showing dominance signals that make the power type that I am as a male, feel comfortable, like she is motherly. Attractive signals can be confusing to a man who is not at a wise level or grade in respect for women. Often men wrongly blame women for their signals of attraction when things go wrong, but if women send Earth Mother signals a man is more easily able to respect her, it happens naturally. By the way I love your show.

why do women think men need to ' compromise ' and learn their covert communication??? Why not just walk up to a man and introduce yourself............hidiing behind covert methods makes you no less responsible......................another woman telling women what men want............do you see the CONFLICT.

Hi Vanessa. Would like to know whether should men approach the lady from the front or back. At 4.28 min of the video, it was mentioned not to approach from the back. However, towards the end of the video, it was mentioned to approach from the back.

It’s so important to understand the way we tick regardless gender. So often we subconsciously sense intent or have a feeling but being able to spot it literally it’s a great verification. As for those spotting the confusion of men approaching from behind or front she means from behind.

plucking eyebrows makes a woman look more vulnerable??? Is that science? Sounds like a soft or "BS" science to me... like something you made up... like an opinion... no way to prove or disprove.
Slav Gaming (6 months ago)
Thin, elevated brows signal timid behavior or insecurity alluring the male to 'save or protect her' Women feminize themselves w/o the conscious knowledge that it is all to attract the opposite gender.

Well it's actually still pretty much 'caveman' behavior, the basic rules haven't changed much. The end result is still the same: alpha caveman wins alpha cavewoman, alpha man wins alpha female.

YouTube, Is this Intentional Complexionism? -- As noted elsewhere, the "Auto-play" mode generally seems to allow videos to be played As Listed in the line-up shown. Yet, Not when I've watched videos of persons classed as "Black." This time, I watched a vid of V Van Edwards, which would (according to the shown line-up) have meant the following Auto-played Vid Should Have Been A Lisa Nichols one. INSTEAD, THE LINE-UP WAS CHANGED TO SHOW MORE VIDS BY VAN EDWARDS, A PERSON CLASSED AS "WHITE." -- NON-YOUTUBE AFFILIATES, PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND HERE... -- ONLY YOUTUBE REPRESENTATIVES ARE ASKED TO HONESTLY RESPOND. THANK YOU.

Yasoda Gonzalez (9 months ago)
oh... I thought you were a scientist. I was even arguing with my husband about you being a legitimate expert just last night - then you go and say on TV that raising your neck releases pheromones? Did you mean that in animals pheromones are sometimes released from this area? It's widely believed the revealing the neck is a sign of submission/acceptance in mammals because it exposes the jugular vein and vagus nerve and makes you vulnerable... Maybe in some animals this also releases pheromones, but that's not why human males like it. If they even do. TLDR: HUMANS DON'T HAVE PHEROMONES!

+Vanessa Van Edwards - the other part of a woman touching her neck is expressing vulnerability to a man, which of course appeases men, and no doubt spikes their testosterone.

We are not primates, we are modern era humans, why we should understand body language ? it's an insult to verbal language.
Vanessa Van Edwards (1 year ago)
Good point +Millionaire! So- up to 93% of our communication is nonverbal and it is important to read the cues that others are sending. Here are the reasons why reading nonverbal communication is important: https://www.scienceofpeople.com/2013/07/body-language-of-attraction/

Most men will gladly surrender the armrest to a woman. Its a confidence thing not a dominance thing. I'm sure there is more tactful ways to jack the armrest from him than throwing a bow at him lol. You got to remember when a man sits next to a woman he instintually wants to put his arm around her. When its a woman we don't know that arm position is in an awkward state. If we pull our arm away then we either look nonconfident or that we are repulsed by her. Keep it casual and light and ask for a little more space. The man then can pull his arm away without feeling awkward and save his confidence. Most men want to make women happy. Only Total dicks want to act like Gorillas
