here is no formula to falling in love. But there are some traits that tend to draw people to each other, help facilitate trust, and contribute to building long-lasting relationships.
Certified Health and Wellness Coach, Lauren Brown MSc. WWHP, compiled a list of twenty such qualities for Healthversed. Some of these rely on genetics or your prospective partner's preferences, but others may be things you can develop over time.
The road to love is paved with a combination of compatibility, genuine affection, the ability to grow and develop as an individual, and yeah, maybe a smidge of biology. But that doesn't make it any less romantic.
It kind of goes without saying that loving yourself makes it easier for other people to love you. Self-confidence isn’t easy to accomplish, and everyone has their off days, but learning to be comfortable in your own skin and knowing how much you’re worth will attract a person who sees and appreciates exactly how awesome you are. Guaranteed.
Be nice, OK? It might seem like common sense, but people who are kind to others attract people. Who’d a thunk?
A study conducted at the University of Chicago found that people who answered that they would sacrifice their own wishes to let the one they love achieve theirs were more likely to have “very happy” marriages.
Playing Hard To Get
While it’s not a good idea to totally deny someone you’re interested in because they might get the hint and run away, The Scarcity Principle — desire that results from not being able to have something — is a real phenomenon.
Translation: Wait a day to text back, sure, but don’t go radio silent for a week.
Having a Symmetrical Face
Unless you have thousands of dollars to spend on plastic surgery, this one’s probably not changeable for you. But it has been proven with research that “females of many species unconsciously prefer males with symmetrical faces because symmetry is perceived to represent his genetic health.”
Contrary to popular belief, opposites do not attract. A bad boy might be exciting at first if you’re more inclined to follow the rules, but over time, your differences will only be highlighted and if you don’t have enough in common, the relationship will die.
