Here’s to a sparkling love life Hedonistas!
We’re not suggesting that image is more important than personality in a relationship, of course it’s not. However, image is certainly the gateway to attraction, the first clue anyone has into our deeper character, our passions and what we’re really like. Image is often the key to seeing whether we have an initial attraction towards someone and them towards us.
We all know how important first impressions are: within seconds of meeting someone, you will already have formed an opinion of them, however open minded you think you are. Without putting unrealistic pressure on yourself, you can create the best first impression by simply putting forward your best possible self. This is not just looks, but rather how we present ourselves to the world at large.
Looking Good will Boost You Confidence
When choosing an outfit for a date, it is important to balance knowing you’ve made an effort with feeling confident and comfortable. If you get it right, you should feel confident because you look good, are dressed appropriately for the occasion and comfortable because you haven’t gone over the top, unless over the top is you, because you are an extrovert. In which case go ahead. But you don’t want to be constantly adjusting your outfit, and you should feel like you! If you feel uncomfortable in what you’re wearing, you probably look it, so rethink.
Pay Attention and Smile!
As we mentioned before, physical attributes are only a small part of one’s overall attractiveness. There are certain tricks to appearing more attractive when creating a first impression. It might be surprising to know that non-verbal communication makes up around 70% of our communication so it’s not necessarily what you say, it’s how you say it. By being aware of three key points, we can give a better first impression. Make sure that you smile, make eye contact and be aware of your tone of voice as all these factors will go a long way to creating a good impression.
Paying attention is another crucial element in appearing more attractive. People tend to be attracted to those they feel will be attracted to them, so if you want to catch the eye of someone you like, then make sure you look their way and pay attention when they speak to you.
Let Your Intelligence Shine
It may sound contradictory to give tips on various things to be aware of and then advise to be natural, but it is possible to also be yourself. By following the things we’ve discussed, by the time you arrive, you should be feeling confident enough to show your personality. Part of this is not being afraid to let your intelligence shine through. There is much said about intelligence being intimidating with regards to dating, but in fact, research has shown that people find intelligence to be an attractive quality. It also makes you stand out from the crowd, so don’t hide yours behind a mask!
