The 5 Things You Need If You Want to Get into a Relationship


Guest Post by Hannah Whittenly

If you’ve been single for too long, it might be time to do a reevaluation of your strategy on the dating scene. Or maybe you’re just holding out for someone who blows you away and you want to make sure that you’re on the top of your game when that person comes around.

Either way, you should be dedicated to self-improvement so that you show off the best version of yourself in your quest to get into a relationship. Here are five dating areas you should focus on to win over the object of your affection.

1. Humor

No matter how attractive you are, your sense of humor can make or break a relationship. If you have your new flame always giggling, you can probably count on your relationship lasting awhile. However, be sure that your humor isn’t overly immature or your love might think that you can never be serious. Instead, perfectly-timed, thoughtful humor will go a long way towards building a solid relationship where you continually make one another laugh.

2. Ambition

Being driven in life will pay off in a multitude of ways. For example, if you show that you have goals, your sweetheart will probably perceive you as a mature adult who can think ahead and plan for the future, which might include a life together and potentially the start of your family. On the other hand, if you’re capricious about your life decisions, or if you simply aren’t passionate or dedicated to anything at all, you likely won’t be keep your partner passionate about you, either.

3. A Flattering Wardrobe

The bottom line is that you have to look good if you want to attract other people. Sure, once you have their attention, you can win them over with humor and personality, but you have to be appealing enough to make them notice you in the first place. Being well-dressed shows that you take the time and effort to get ready and take care of yourself.

4. Personal Hygiene

Not only should you be dressed well, but you should also be freshly-shaven and fresh-smelling. After all, no one will want to snuggle up next to you if you look like you haven’t showered or taken care of yourself in over a week. If you aren’t looking to attract the kind of girls you’d see in a college bar, you need to make sure you aren’t neglecting your personal hygiene like a college student.

5. A Good Attitude

Whatever you do, have fun and be positive. Having a positive attitude will make you more enjoyable to be around and make people more attracted to you. Being negative and sad all the time will do the opposite and push people away, so keep a smile. Try your hardest to be as positive as you can be.

If you’re looking to get back in the game, consider the tips on this list. If you work on these parts of yourself, you’ll find someone in no time that wants to spend more time with you.
