Everybody has a market value in relationships and love just like products in a market place, and everybody will try to get the best possible deal for himself.
This fact looks weird, but people act this way unconsciously, that's why they will never feel themselves weird while they use this pattern of selecting partners.
When people calculate someone's value, they will count his physical look, his status, money, prestige, knowledge, personality, inner nature etc. After this they will compare him with themselves, then they decide if that person is a good deal or not.
How does the level of attractiveness affect relationships
People usually are not happy to go in a relationship with someone who has a lower value than them, but if he is as worthy as them, their unconscious will motivate them to stay close to him by launching the emotions of attraction. (Read also: How does love happen)
What did you think when you say a pretty young woman with an old man in the street? Most probably you thought that the old man must be very rich. When you see a handsome man and an ugly woman together, you automatically think that she must have a great personality.
The same way the person you want to attract will calculate your value through counting your looks, your resources, personality and other goods to determine if there is something good for him/her in you or not. In every case, the lack of one quality will lower your value, but if you have other great qualities, you will still be a great deal to someone.
For example you may lack status and power, but many potential partners will consider you very well because you are handsome, or just because you are so honest and knowledgeable. However this isn't everything, you can manipulate others in order to appear more beautiful, more powerful, richer, smarter and more caring, etc.
Does manipulation help to attract someone
What you really are and how do people see you are different things. Looks, personality, your knowledge really exist, but they are conveyed to others through perceptions, and perceptions can be easily manipulated.
Before I talk about how to manipulate someone in order to attract him, I want to warn you that going too far with manipulation is not in your interest. If you are hardly manipulating someone, this means you are chasing someone who is more superior than you in many qualities.
But researches have shown that relationships between two partners with deep differences in value and attractiveness are unhappy and usually end up with painful divorces. The superior partner will feel that difference someday, and he will reflect these feelings with the way he talks to you, with being distant to you etc.
That's why you don't need a prince/princess to be happy. The myth of ordinary guy who marries a beautiful princess and live happy ever after is real only in cartoon movies. In reality this couple lives in misery. Now let's see how to use manipulation properly to attract the right person to you. (Read: Similarities are the secret of attraction)
How to attract someone through manipulating his perceptions
You can make someone fall in love with you by increasing your level of attractiveness. You can be measured as more valuable and more attractive through appearing more beautiful, more powerful, more popular, richer, more knowledgeable and greater in your inner world. Let's see how all these qualities can be manipulated.
Make him/her think you are a better looking: An experiment was made with two women who had a similar physical attractiveness. And one of these women managed to capture the interest of all the men in the street. Men putted their lives in danger just to help her. Those women were both good looking, but the one who attracted their interest was looking greater in their minds.
This happened because she was moving in a confident way. She was smiling all the time, she was looking fun loving and moving sexy. The other woman was moving too insecure. This means that the way you move affects the way people perceive your physical attractiveness. The same happens to men. Those who move confident, who make strong and manly gestures appear much more physically attractive to women.
Appear more resourceful: Money and resources are considered a great value, especially by women. If the person you want to attract is rich, then your resources might be one of his/her serious criteria that he won't do compromises. (Read: Women are attracted to money - That's why)
In order to make him think you are rich, you need to pay special attention to what you wear. Each stuff of your clothes must cost at least a hundred dollars. Your hair model and other services you buy must show their high prices.
Status and prestige: Targets who have high status might search for another partner who has also a high status. You can manipulate their perception of your status by talking a bit differently. (Read also: How to be more attractive to women)
It's not about using big words, but it's about choosing them wisely. Enrich yourself with elegant words that reflect a high status and your personality. Look what topics of conversation high status people talk about, and avoid topics about high prices, ordinary topics.
Your other qualities: Try to appear knowledgeable, honest, supporting, sometimes sensitive, artistic, because these qualities are measured too. These traits increase your value and sometimes they win over other traits.
You don't need much manipulation here. It's your choice to be honest and supporting or not. You can learn more valuable things, an ambitious person values a knowledgeable person more than others and many times this trait alone was enough to make him fall in love.
Final Words: Everything you do to increase your attractiveness score will help you to attract someone, because you will become a great deal for him. These concepts are proven from too many researches.
