Men: Here’s How You Stand Out From The Crowd

It’s easy to be in the background, making up the numbers. All you need to do is turn up! But there are, of course, limitations to this. It’s the easiest option to take, but not the most fulfilling, nor the most exciting. It’s always worth living your life with the understanding that, well, you only get one life on this planet. And that means that you should make the most of it. You should stand out from the crowd. But how can you ensure that this is the case? We’ll take a look at some tried and tested methods below.

Have Your Own Personality

It’s easy to fall into the habit of just doing what everyone around you is doing. But if you do that, then you can’t have too many complaints if your life isn’t as rewarding as you’d like it to be. And you can’t complain if people aren’t giving you the levels of attention that you’re looking for. The better option? Develop your own personality. You can be an individual and be part of the crowd. It’s when you’re only finding your worth in the groups that you belong to when the trouble begins. 

Of course, there’s no fast track towards a personality. It’s something that you nurture through finding your own interests, developing your beliefs, and so on. Not everyone will like you, but you’ll be bold and won’t be just another person in the long line of people who follow the crowd.


If there’s one criticism that is thrown at men, it’s not that they’re not as well-groomed as they could or should be. You could argue that grooming (and, more broadly, self-care) is what separates the men from the boys. And the funny thing about self-grooming is that it takes next to no time; ten minutes a day will do it. That involves brushing your teeth, showering yourself, tidying up your hair, cleaning your ears, and plucking any stray hairs. It’s a simple enough activity that can make a big difference — not just to how other people see you, but how you see yourself.

Bold Style

Walk into a pub, and you’ll invariably see a group of men who are more or less wearing the same outfits. The colours may differ slightly, but the clothes will be the same. Jeans, a t-shirt, jumper, sneakers, and that’s about it. It’ll help you to fit in, but the whole objective is not to be content with fitting in. You want to make a splash. You can do this by developing a bolder than average style. It begins with your wardrobe. Rather than picking up the same old clothing from the high street stores, look at investing in something bolder, such as Off White for men clothing. From there, you can add things like jewellery, tattoos, and modern and stylish haircuts. You’ll find that you turn heads for all the right reasons. 

Care For Others

The old version of masculinity promoted individualism. You were supposed to just take whatever you could get. Empathy for other people was seen as a weakness. However, times have — thankfully — moved on. Today, it’s not only acceptable for males to care about others, it’s encouraged and accepted. Of course, not everyone has got that memo — the war is still being fought. But the people that society is increasingly admiring are the ones who show concern for others. How you do this will depend on your interests/environment. It could mean getting political, or it could be something like calling out toxic masculinity traits in social settings. Again, you might lose some popularity with this approach, but it will be recognised — and admired.

Standing Tall

People with confidence always stand out from the crowd — it doesn’t matter what gender you are. Indeed, if you’re looking to step up and make more of a mark on the world, then getting confidence would be a brilliant way to do it. Confidence isn’t something that you can fill up with a tap, however. It’s something that you have to slowly acquire through a million different actions. But if you’re looking for a quick fix, then look at standing tall. Simply correcting your posture can change how people perceive you. So simple!

Diverse Interests

The staples of male interest are pretty well-known: football, gaming, movies. While you should enjoy those things, there’s a lot of value in looking beyond those things and having a greater range of interests. People are always drawn to people that can discuss a wide range of interests, or who are interested in doing more than the usual things that everyone else is doing. Spread your wings a little, and you never know where it might lead.

Mental, Physical, Spiritual

Through no fault of their own, men born in previous generations could end up being pretty one-dimensional. The culture of the time told them to be strong, or to work hard…and that was about it. Modern culture is different. There’s more of an emphasis on self-care. We understand that you can’t just be physically strong. You should endeavour to tick all the key boxes — the mental, physical, and spiritual sides of yourself. If all those things are in order, then you’ll have a level of peace and contentment that many people dream of having

A Happy Nature

People are always drawn to happy people. And that’s especially true these days, when it feels like there are many people looking for answers. As with confidence, happiness isn’t something that you can just decide to have. It’s something that you need to acquire. The good news is that the riddle of how to be happy is close to being solved. If you’re exercising, spending time in nature, and showing gratitude for all that you have, then you’ll be on the right track. And as with most things on this list, this won’t just change how people see you: it can be a game-changing shift that has a dramatically positive impact on your life.
