A friendly smile can show off your sweetness.

Just because you have Ryan Gosling-like six-pack abs or Adam Levine's rocker good looks doesn't mean the girls will come running. While that's not to say that a handsome face or chiseled body won't get a girl's attention, having a sweet side can make you a man the opposite sex simply can't resist. From compassion and empathy to interest and affection, you can become the sweet guy who gets the girls.

1 Honestly Speaking

Telling tales to punch up your image won't always get you a girl. Instead of making yourself out to be someone you aren't or embellishing your attributes, act honestly to show off your sweetness. Likewise, other types of lying -- such as not telling the truth about where you are going and with whom -- can make you come off as more of a cad than cute, according to the article "Am I in a Healthy Relationship?" on the "Teens Health" website. For example, if you tell your new girlfriend you're studying at the library and she finds out you're at a party instead, you won't look very sweet.

2 Respect Her

While you might not agree with everything a girl says or believes, telling her so shows a lack of respect. If you want to make yourself irresistible to girls, show them the respect they deserve. Give the object of your affection courtesy when it comes to her opinions and values. This doesn't mean that you have to agree with everything she says or adopt her beliefs as yours. If you have a differing opinion, respectfully tell her that you value what she has to say, but your view varies.

3 Emotions and Empathy

You're walking down the hallway at school when the cute girl from your chemistry class trips and spills her books. While everyone else laughs, you help her up and say, "I know exactly how you feel. I did that once, and it stinks when other people are so mean." Understanding what she is feeling, or showing empathy, is key if you want to come off as a caring guy. Don't just act or pretend like you care, as this appears fake. You need to truly put yourself in her shoes and imagine what she is going through to feel real empathy.

4 Flirt With Control

Flirting itself won't suggest that you aren't sweet. But when you go overboard or are extra obvious, it can. If you want to seem super sweet, maintain eye contact with the girl you are talking to, smile and show your interest. When you are flirting with a girl, make sure you're only flirting with her. Flirting with several girls simultaneously makes you look anything but sweet.
