If Barney Stinson were to get himself a profile on Tinder, we are willing to bet that he’d get the most dates. Not that he needs to sign up on a dating app as he is the smoothest and most legend — wait for it — ary player on the block!
But if we put aside his narcissistic ways, we can find in him, every such quality that a woman looks for in a man, in the first glance. Take a leaf out of Barney Stinson’s playbook.
- SUIT UP!
Barney’s attention to detail with his presentation and style has made every hot chick in Manhattan weak in her knees for him. He is very specific in his dress style and the phenomenon that men are instantly more attractive when they are suited up has worked wonders for him. No woman can resist a man in a well-fitted suit. For the best ones, head to Edit Suits!
Another thing we love about Barney is that he is bold and confident, even in all his elaborate schemes to seduce women. He is willing to go where other men will not. This is an admirable quality in any man. Confidence allows a man to maintain an aura of awesomeness in his day to day life which obviously translates to success in his work life as well.
The appeal of a metrosexual man is simply down to his good old fashioned aesthetics. Basic flannels, the rugged look, a thick yet well taken care of beard is most attractive in men. Barney always took pride in looking put together. Have a signature hairstyle that you can perfect even on your bad hair days. Polish your shoes. Maintain clean fingernails. The effort certainly won’t go unnoticed.

- Smell Good
There was a time – when a man who would dab on aftershave was met with a level of suspicion usually reserved for politicians at the time of elections. But with the changing times, cologne has essentially become a part of the men’s kit. Ensure your fragrance is a subtle part of your overall presence. Barney Stinson would sure approve. Invest in a classic scent you think you are comfortable in. Woody, spicy or herby scents suit the winter months, while lighter, citrus scents work best in spring and summer.

- Put Your Best Foot Forward
A man who shows up in scuffed shoes fails to impress. Women, since my grandmother’s generation believed you could “tell a man by his shoes”. Invest in some good quality leather shoes (and a collection of socks) in black and brown, loafers or moccasins for casual wear and flip flops for when needed. Always choose footwear according to the occasion and outfit. As Barney says, “there are only three things I would fight — the stubborn clasp of a bra, a paternity suit.. and the urge to vomit whenever I see someone wear brown shoes with a black suit”.
But most importantly, have fun! When you are comfortable in your own skin, it shows. And NOTHING can be more attractive than that. Stay classy, gentlemen!
