If personality did not matter, everyone would want to be with someone attractive. Sure you want someone who is going to make you laugh, someone who is smart enough to know what is actually going on in the world, someone with a great personality. But you also want someone nice to look at every day.
When analyzing a relationship, there are many key factors that should be looked at before deciding what to do.
We met online. But the swipe on him was accidental. He was scruffy. The opposite of my usual tall, strait-laced, athletic type.
But his wit, as sharp as a tack. One of those syrupy sweet, nice guys. But with this strategy, we are just shooting ourselves in the foot from the get-go if we hope the date will grow into a relationship.
Really, this is more of an instant gratification ego boost rather than a basis for a successful relationship with someone. Here are the benefits of age-gap love. Research suggests that most people tend to couple up more long-term with people they consider to be close to their own assessment of attractiveness and desirability.
And another recent study found that women have been proven to be happier with men they deem less attractive than themselves. Thus, the women tend to feel more appreciated in the relationship.
Whereas in cases where the women considered their partners as much more attractive than themselves, they were found to be less happy. Many of us date the same kind of people repeatedly.
With a similar result. And if these relationships are bad, it has an almost all-consuming negative effect on our daily lives. We date guys who are the opposite of our d, or the exact same. All in.
The danger in dating very similar people over and over is we keep choosing the wrong men. Same type, different day. So, lets flip that sucker from the get-go when swiping, not just in terms of attractiveness, but also date differently.
