Whether you’re in a newfound relationship or a long-term partnership, certain things will remind you why you’re madly in love with your significant other.
Here are some of the most cliched, yet romantic reasons people give when they’re asked the question, “What made you fall in love with your partner?”
Keeping your hands open: Body-language experts say that posture speaks louder than words. Keeping your hands in your pockets and your shoulders turned inwards sends a wrong signal. It gives an impression of another person that you may not be interested. But talking with your hands and standing in an open stance also gives a wrong impression. It shows that you’re available. It is time you got out of the habit of keeping your hands in your pockets or your shoulders turned inwards while ensuring you don’t talk too much with hands.
Smelling Good: You must have come across various television ads where women fall all over men when they use a particular brand of deo. Well, the ads may come across as a bit exaggerated, but there are many pieces of evidence on how scent can play a role in attraction. A study said that women who were ovulating suggested that some prefer the smell of T-shirts worn by men with high levels of testosterone. Women have the greater sense of smell and a good smell has a positive psychological impact on them.
Staring into each others’ eyes: This is something that many of you would already know. Staring definitely makes another person curious and take note of you. However, it should not be done in a way that the other person gets uncomfortable. It also suggest that long periods of eye contact can connect you to someone and even ignite feelings of love inside you for that person.
Having a broad smile: Every person is more attractive when they have a smile on their face. Why do we love to look at kids? It is their smile that instantly connects with us. And it is applicable to adults as well. People who always smile are considered to be as ones who have the positive outlook towards life and as people who can handle life’s situations with ease. And, it is this positivity that attracts the opposite sex.
Chivalry attracts many: How many times have you looked at that one guy who opens the door for you or waits for you to get into the lift first and said wow? People who put others first before themselves are liked by one and all. In fact, research says that they are more likely to have a healthy and satisfying relationship in their future. However, being selfless doesn’t mean one has to please people. It is important to know when to say no.
Pet owners are more approachable: In a University of Michigan experiment, women were made to read articles about men. Whenever the story featured a person who owned a dog, women rated them with higher long-term attractiveness. This, researchers say, is because pet ownership could portray a nurturing person or one with a tendency towards relationship commitment.
