The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Daters

image of a happy coupleWe all know someone who makes things look so easy, right? Some people just seem to float through life and have no problems dating, whilst others struggle.

Now what is it that makes them so different, but more importantly, so successful? What is their secret?

Here is a list we compiled for you and we hope you find it useful. These are the SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE DATERS:

1. Shiny, happy people
Who would you rather go out with? Someone who mopes and moans all day long or a happy and life affirming person? I’m guessing the latter. It’s not surprising really that the majority of people prefer a sunny nature and positive attitude, it releases endorphins which in turn make us happy. Smiley faces all around 🙂

2. Like yourself
We are all programmed to look for the strongest and most desirable mate, so a person who is comfortable in their own skin, knows and accepts themselves radiates appeal. Focus on your attributes rather than what you don’t like about yourself and you will be well on your way.

3. Be your own person
Being independent and having your own life is very attractive to the opposite sex as it has a lot to do with respecting yourself and doing things that you need to make you happy. What is it that makes you buzz with excitement?

4. Compromise
Being a pushover and a power-nodder is certain to spell disaster for 99% of relationships. However being uncompromising is equally as off-putting. Relationships are all about give and take. Make sure it’s balanced.

5. Be respectful
It’s quite simple: Don’t do unto others what you don’t want done unto yourself.

6. Relax
Give up the road rage. Be mindful of others. It will make you less stressed and bring more positivity into your life, making you happier in the process. And you know what they say about happy folks, right? (see point 1)

7. Gratitude
In a world where perfection seems to be all around us, we often forget that it’s the small things that truly matter such as health, family, freedom, a roof over your head etc. Being grateful for what you have is a sign of maturity and strength. Make a list of all that’s good in your life, you’ll be surprised how much really there is to be thankful for; then refer back to point 1.

Please share thoughts with us. Do you agree / disagree with any of the above? Have we forgotten a habit?
