6 Tips How To Be More Masculine in 2022
There are a lot of avenues in life that require us to put on a "masculine" persona. Whether it's going into a job interview, asking for a raise, or even just going on a first date - we need to be able to project confidence, strength, and above all else - masculinity.
The problem is, many of us were never really taught how to do this. Society tells us that we "just know" how to be masculine, but the reality is that most of us are just guessing. And when we don't feel confident in our abilities, it shows. We come off as weak, scared, and ultimately - unmasculine.
So how can we change this? How can we learn to be more masculine? In this blog post, I'm going to share with you 6 tips that will help you become a more masculine man
- Get in touch with your primal side
One of the best ways to start becoming more Masculine lifestyle is to get in touch with your primal side. This means getting in touch with the things that helped our ancestors survive thousands of years ago hunting, gathering, and fighting.
You don't need to go out and kill an animal with your bare hands (though you could if you wanted to), but you can start by doing things like going for walks in nature, cooking your own meals from scratch using fresh ingredients, and working out regularly. These activities will help connect you with your primal side and make you feel more confident and masculine.
- Be decisive
Another important aspect of masculinity is decisiveness. Men are expected to be the leaders in any situation, which means that we need to be able to make decisions quickly and confidently.
If you're having trouble with this, one tip I can give you is to think about the potential consequences of your decision before you make it. For example, if you're trying to decide whether or not to ask a girl out on a date, think about what could happen if she says yes versus what could happen if she says no. This will help you weigh the pros and cons quickly and make a decision accordingly.
- Surround yourself with other masculine men
Finally, one of the best ways to become more masculine is to surround yourself with other masculine men. This might seem counterintuitive - after all, shouldn't we be trying to learn how to be masculine on our own? - but the reality is that being around other masculine men will help raise your own level of masculinity.
Think about it like this: if you're the only masculine man in a group of people, then you'll stand out like a sore thumb; but if you're one of many masculine men in a group, then you'll blend right in. So find some friends or colleagues who are already naturally masculine and spend time with them regularly. Not only will you have more fun, but you'll also start becoming more like them without even realizing it!
- Don't be afraid to show your emotions
In the past, men have been taught to bottle up their emotions and suppress them. This is not only harmful to our mental health, but it also robs us of our ability to connect with others. Showing our emotions makes us more relatable and approachable, and it shows that we are comfortable in our own skin. So next time you're feeling Sad, Angry, or any other emotion, don't be afraid to let it out. Your friends and family will appreciate it, and it will make you feel better too.
- Be assertive without being aggressive
Assertiveness is a key component of masculinity, but there's a difference between being assertive and being aggressive. Being assertive means standing up for yourself and others when necessary, but always doing so in a respectful way. On the other hand, aggression is all about using force or threats in order to get what you want - something that ultimately reflects poorly on you as a man. If you want to be more masculine without crossing the line into aggression, make sure you stay assertive at all times.
- Be confident without being cocky.
Confidence is another important aspect of masculinity, but again, there's a fine line between confidence and cockiness. To err on the side of confidence rather than cockiness, make sure your body language is open and welcoming instead of closed off and hostile looking. Additionally, try not to brag too much or talk excessively about yourself - let your actions speak for themselves instead. By exuding genuine confidence instead of cockiness, you'll appear more attractive and competent as a man without coming across as arrogant or insufferable.
Becoming more masculine doesn't have to be difficult or complicated - it can be as simple as getting in touch with your primal side, being decisive, and surrounding yourself with other masculine men. Try implementing these three tips into your life and see how they change things for you!
