Simple Things That Make You More Attractive

In Singapore, we’re lucky enough to get a lot of great dating spots. But, of course, finding a good dating spot is too easy compared to getting someone to actually like you. So, without further ado, here are some things you need to know to make you appear more attractive!

Taking the time to groom yourself

Let’s start with probably the most obvious thing that makes one attractive, grooming and looking clean. Of course, if you want a person to get attracted to you, it’s obvious that you should always look presentable. Having clean hair or a good haircut, appropriate clothing, and even good posture can mean a lot when presenting yourself to others. Grooming yourself well can show your value as a potential partner.

Smiling more

For one, smiling more makes you look more friendly and approachable. Interestingly, the effects of smiling can be more profound for females than males. When a woman smiles a lot, it can be very effective for attracting the opposite sex, but it isn’t the same case for males. Of course, that’s not to say that males aren’t attractive when they smile more. You can still do it and expect someone to at least notice you. 

Having a sense of humor

This is also another pretty obvious factor of attraction. Although males and females both consider sense of humor as an attractive trait, a man’s desirability is more affected by how funny they are. This is why it’s considered that women are more likely to like men who can make them laugh, while men are likely to choose women who respond to their humor well. A big part of why humor makes one attractive is because it shows that can always create a good mood. That simply suggests you are more fun to be with!

Being kind

More than anything, it’s being kind that awards you the most points in attraction. When it comes to having a certain “type”, people are almost always asked to choose between looks and personality. Of course, it would be great to have both but usually, having a good personality is more preferred. Simple acts like greeting a janitor, opening a door for someone, and being polite to a waiter, can be very appealing to many.

Not playing hard-to-get

Over the years, more and more people prefer choosing a partner whose thoughts and emotions they can easily understand. Before, people liked to keep their partners guessing. But today, that’s proved to be less effective. If you think about it, it makes sense why we would prefer someone who doesn’t make us feel unsure about their feelings. Bottom line is, don’t play hard to get anymore or at least don’t do it too much!

How to Beat Boredom in Your Relationship

Bored as hell with your relationship? Are you just fighting most of the time? Well, we’ve all been there. Sure, experiencing relationship ruts is normal, but it can also be isolating and frustrating for both parties. For that reason, we gathered a list of ways on how you could possible bring the spark back to your fizzling relationship.

1. Engage in New and Exciting Activities

Doing things together might be essential to maintain a relationship, but doing the same thing over and over again could also lead to boredom and decreased relationship quality. So stave off the blahs in your relationship, and engage in exhilarating activities together, such as riding roller coasters, going sky diving or even getting a couples’ massage. Trying out new things and playing around will help in boosting your relationship happiness and enhancing your relationship satisfaction.

2. Create a Bucket List

Another thing you can do to bring back the spark in your relationship is to list down the things you’d want to do together as a couple. It could be anything from hiking the nearest trek site in your area or simply cooking dinner together once a week. Once you’re done creating a list, choose three items that you’d both want to do and take them on over the following months.

3. Plan Out Mini-Dates

Too busy to plan a weekly date night? If so, consider eating breakfast together, meeting during lunch, or spending 30 minutes each night to talk with each other instead. In this time, ensure that there are no distraction so you can just focus on each other and on your relationship.

4. Fill Out a “Fantasy Jar”

Another sure-fire way to spice up your relationship is by creating a fantasy jar. In this trick, write out every fantasy that you can think of on a separate piece of paper, and have your S.O. do the same thing. Once you’re both done, place them all in a jar and take turns picking and acting out the fantasies listed on the paper.

5. Communicate Both Your Needs

If you’re stuck in a fighting rut with your partner, then it could be the right time to voice out both your needs. Bottling up your issues will likely decrease your relationship satisfaction and increase the chances of infidelity. To keep that from happening, ensure that you communicate each other’s needs from your relationship, be it emotional support or splitting the bills.

While it’s only normal to feel bored with your relationship, don’t let it worsen and push you or your partner to engage in activities that could cause the fall of your relationship. Instead, work together and try out any of the aforementioned tricks to bring back the spark in your fizzling relationship.
