You shouldn't alter your personality in order to impress a man. After all, it'll always backfire on you. According to Essence, here are a few things that don't actually impress men as much as we think it does:

1. MS. I DON'T EAT

MS. I DON'T EAT

He'd rather sit down to dinner with someone who eats an actual meal than someone who orders water and a salad, even thought they're starving. So don't be afraid to order that burger.

2. MS. FAIR-WEATHER SPORTS FAN

MS. FAIR-WEATHER SPORTS FAN

If you hate sports, don't pretend to love them. Your man wants you to be honest with him. Besides, he has plenty of friends to watch the big game with. He doesn't need your support, too.

3. MS. GIGGLES

MS. GIGGLES

Don't laugh at everything he says, just to make him feel important. He'll appreciate it more if you save your laughs for the jokes he tells that are actually funny. That way, he'll feel like he earned the laugh.

4. MS. KNOW IT ALL

MS. KNOW IT ALL

Men love smart women, but it's impossible to know it all. That's why you shouldn't feel bad if you're a little less experienced in some areas. He won't mind it.

5. MS. BODY CONSCIOUS

MS. BODY CONSCIOUS

You shouldn't stare in the mirror and check the scale every hour on the hour. Your man will want you to be confident, because he already knows how beautiful you are.

6. MS. TMI

MS. TMI

You don't have to tell him about every aspect of your life. Yes, it's good to be open with your partner. However, there are some things (like your bathroom habits) that should stay a secret.

7. MS. BEAUTY QUEEN

hair, face, person, clothing, supermodel,

Yes, men like attractive women. However, that doesn't mean that you need to wear dresses and heels constantly if you want to impress someone. You don't need makeup, either, because you're a natural beauty.

8. Ms. Designer-Label

music, singing, singer, It's, not,

You might think men will be more impressed when they see you toting round that classic Chanel handbag or strutting around in the latest pair of Louboutins, but in reality men don't think much about the brands you wear, whether they're super expensive designer labels or not. Remember it's the way that you present yourself that he will notice and admire, not the labels or the price tags in your wardrobe.

9. Ms. Caught-in-the-moment

black, hair, black and white, white, face,

Whether he ends up calling or texting you the next time he wants to see you will depend on your approach in terms of what you give him and what you don't. Remember that men love a chase, so don't give him everything at once and try to leave him wanting more!

10. Ms. Higher Education

graduation, academic dress, event,

Men might be interested in your education, what you studied and what you learnt from it, but don't assume that's all they care about. Most of the time they would rather see your brain and charm over hearing every single detail of your rather high education. Even though it's something to be proud of, it can come across as bragging/boasting and even arrogance to some men.

Have you ever pretended to be any of these things?

I disagree with the no giggling one, I feel that people should be happy, smiling, and laughing as much as possible when around their boyfriend.

I've never pretended to be someone else. Even in school where everyone wants to fit in a certain group. I refused to change myself and I stand by that. If men don't like me, that's fine there are ple...

This post is so true. We should never lose ourselves over a guy. A real man appreciates a woman that is herself, I feel.

This was a great article, but not all girls wear makeup to impress other people. Often times, it's for ourselves. We know we don't NEED makeup for our beauty, but that doesn't mean we don't WANT to wear it.
