"Red is the color of sex and power," says Eiseman. Red adds an element of excitement and attracts two types of men - men interested in sex, and men attracted to powerful women.
Sure, you'll probably have to fend off a lot of freaks, but you could also end up attracting a guy that isn't threatened by the fact that you make a bigger salary.
Concerned your wardrobe is driving people away?
Stay away from what Eiseman calls "squished caterpillar yellow-green" which is said to repel both sexes equally.
Want to know what color the dream guys will be wearing this year?
According to Eiseman, guys who frequently wear blue are "stable, faithful, constant and always there."The blue guy is a fantastic candidate for a long-term relationship -- he's dependable, momogomous and can match his own clothes.
3. BODY TALK THAT REELS 'EM IN
How do you use body language to attract the opposite sex?
The key is to make yourself approachable.
According to nationally-respected body language expert and professional speaker, Patti Wood, you want to make yourself a "safe" (read approachable) target.
How do you accomplish that?
Don't take up a lot of space (which is a sign of power and superiority.) Wood says, "we are strong women, but remember, we're trying to get a man to come over and talk to us."
She explains, "you have to show you have room for someone else in your life."
In addition, Wood says "to be very approachable women should stand with their feet no farther than 6 inches apart with toes pointed slightly inward. "
Other key moves, the nod and the head tilt
- signal you're listening to what the other person has to say.
Body language tips for both sexes:
Don't fold your arms and don't chew on gum, ice or your fingernails.
According to Wood, the chewing indicates anxiety or frustration, neither of which are very attractive emotions.
4. THE POWER OF A SMILE
Psychology and body language experts agree that one of the most important things you can do to make yourself more attractive (and approachable) is to smile.
Not a great big plastic game-show smile, just your normal "I'm having a great time and I'm happy to be here " face will do the trick.
According to Wood, "the smile is the international signal of friendliness."
5. TEMPTING WITH SCENT
Studies show that men associate the scents of cinnamon and vanilla with love.
To make the scents work for you, try baking some ready-made cinnamon rolls about an hour before your date arrives, or, wear a cinnamon-vanilla scented perfume (there's a fabulous one called "Man Magnet" at www.chooseherbs.com)
