I would say that if any of the following things resemble ones approach to finding respect and love in the world, then your approach, no matter how well it might APPEAR to work, is flawed:
Simply put, if attracting a person requires one to be doing anything other than what one always does, to behave in a different way than they normally would, to react to different stimuli, or to alter their honesty level, or to do any damned thing out of the ordinary for them, then that person is being fake as hell. Attracting a person to oneself with BS, just means that when one is honest, normal, regular, not on the pull so to speak, they will naturally come across as different than the object of their desire intended, and that may very well not go down to terribly well.
So here's the thing. Do not do all that stuff. Do not dress up, do not get a haircut, do not shave unless your face is too warm, do not, do not, DO NOT change a SINGLE damned thing about yourself, unless its something you were looking to change anyway. If they do not like you without all the turd polishing, then they do not deserve your company anyway, and they can take a long walk off a short plank.

I guess you could first find contentment with yourself and find someone else starting from the same point .Enjoying a bag of popcorn watching the light dance on the water while the sun or breeze does it thing can be quite nice .Keeping up with the jones's and running with a crowd means that contentment is what you are seeking . Excitement is always a short lived moment and has to be filled constantly while contentment is watching someone else get the thrill .
Being content takes the rush to life out of the equation .Finding contentment bring a sense of peace where you find your best friend called patience . Its patience you need for the long journey of life to be really contented .There are really exciting things on that journey because its where you find your best friends and things to do .Love is a very exciting thing ,bot giving and receiving it .Its the moments of love that will endure the test of time .always was and always will . Seek love and be content with yourself . Happy is he who agrees with himself .
