It's a thing now.
Before you even glare at the headline, let's clear one thing: "sakto" shouldn't be taken as synonymous to "average." Sure, average guys are still capable of attracting certain girls, but the truth is most women aren't satisfied with the basics. Men being merely pogi isn't that exciting for them anymore either.
This is where the saktong pogi guy comes into the picture. Remember your college classmate who was no heartthrob but scored a date with one of the class beauties? He's most likely sakto. There's also your best friend who recently told you he finally has a girlfriend again. He's no hunk or Casanova but he's not an average Joe either – again, another case of the sakto guy winning the prize.
Simply put, the battlefield has just gotten bigger now that more women are becoming sakto-sexual. What it means is that they reject anything and everything excessive or extreme.
Need the nitty-gritty details to see the full picture? Here’s a rundown of what has been driving women around in circles searching for their best match and what you can do to catch one at full stop.
1. Women don't want to impress men that they can’t connect with anymore.
What makes sakto men sexy has more to do with how they build chemistry, and it just won’t happen if a woman feels that they can’t level with you. Relationships shouldn’t feel like a contest. If she feels she constantly needs to “up” her game whenever she’s meeting with a guy – whether it’s about looking prettier, getting a beach body, or getting involved with exciting hobbies – things will go downhill in no time.
2. Not enough guys are eager to excite her out of bed first.
Just as men won't turn their heads twice at plain Janes, women won’t bother with guys who can’t arouse her interest in and out of bed. Missing the second part is a rookie mistake by many eager beavers. Before you can even get her to join you for some hot rough and tumble, you need to fire up her interest out of bed first. What she really wants is to size you up as a person first and know your interests, hobbies, passions – and find out if those are exciting and stimulating enough for her to get involved with, too.
3. Women are tired of men who don’t bother with grooming and hygiene.
Women are tired of stressing over and over that good grooming makes a man more attractive. They pay attention to little details like how a man’s hair is styled, how his skin feels, and if he smells good. On the other end of the spectrum, anything in excess is just as repulsive: reeking of strong scents, extreme hairstyles that are totally unflattering, and skin that feels too soft, among other things.
The point is, women are now sure of what they want in a man. Ultimately, it’s the so-called saktong pogi guys who fit the bill: they’re well-rounded individuals who charm women with the best version of themselves and don’t just put their best foot forward.
