One Factor You’re Overlooking When Finding Love

“Location, location, location” – you may or may not be familiar with this expression, but it’s commonly used when talking about a business or about real estate. These topics are far from dating, however, interestingly enough, the expression about location is significant when talking about finding love.

How Is Location Relevant to Finding Love?

Peter Jonason, senior lecturer in personality or individual differences at the University of Western Sydney, conducted new research along with other collaborators. The research aimed to:

  • Examine the habits of people looking for both short and long-term relationships.
  • Identify personality traits connected to the preferences of specific venues.
  • Discover gender differences when it came to venue preferences.

The participants of the research were students, 100 of them, 70% female and 30% male, ranging in age from 18 to 38. Surprisingly, a good number of the participants unanimously agreed on which venues people visit to find short and long-term relationships. Here’s a list of the results:

Long-term:

  • Class
  • Organizations
  • Religious
  • Work
  • Gym
  • Coffee shop
  • Volunteer groups
  • Neighborhood
  • Conferences
  • Park

Short-term:

  • Bar
  • Nightclub
  • Party
  • Dance Club
  • Beach
  • Wedding
  • Gym
  • Concert
  • Fraternity party
  • Neighborhood

Next, a different set of participants were required to answer a questionnaire that assessed different traits like narcissism, psychopathy, and Machiavellianism, honesty/humility, emotionality, extraversion, and so on. They were also asked to imagine going to the places on the list above and rate how likely they’re going to find a date at the venue.

Final Results

The numbers were calculated. The results showed that narcissism seemed to be the driving force for mating success in the list for short-term venues. At the same time, these narcissists may use short-term venues to look for long-term relationships. So what does that tell all of us today? One, if we don’t want to date a narcissist, we need to find love in the right places. Two, if all we’re looking for is short-term connections, we, now, have a good idea of where to find them.

Location Is Key Even In Finding Love

It’s strange to say but location is key, or at least one of them, in finding love. If you found this post interesting, please feel free to share it.

What You Shouldn’t Do When You Date Someone Successful

There are some truths we need to accept, no matter how harsh they may be. One of them is that we are living in a fiercely competitive world, where even couples often argue about their values and priorities. To date someone successful may have its advantages, but it may also have various pitfalls.

When You Date Someone Successful, Look Out For These Things

In a very interesting video posted on Business Insider UK, Matthew Hussey, a dating expert and author of the New York Times’ bestseller ‘Get the Guy’ talks about the right way to date someone more successful than you, avoiding easy-to-make mistakes.

First of all, Hussey advises that you put things in the right perspective. He says, “We too often minimize our own purpose because we compare our earnings to somebody else’s. What we have to realize is: somebody may earn more but our time is just as precious.”

Don’t Play Second Fiddle

If we come to this realization, we are more likely to show ourselves the respect we deserve and not fall into the trap of thinking in a way that puts our dreams on the back burner and us in a position of playing second fiddle in our own lives. Yes, it is nice to date someone successful, but not to the detriment of our goals and aspirations. If you have a life goal or ambition, it is wrong to leave it behind for the benefit of your partner thinking that it’s not worthwhile to pursue it because it’s too small or insignificant. If it makes you happy, it is neither small nor insignificant.

Don’t Tolerate Disrespect

Another mistake one shouldn’t make when they date someone successful is to think their partner is entitled to act any way they please with the excuse of being too focused on making it big. Having a successful career is one thing, but being respectful, committed and considerate in your personal life is another. Don’t excuse bad behaviors under the pretense of stress/ tiredness/ long hours at the office. A successful person needs to distinguish their work from their personal life, and there need to be clear lines between the two.

In a nutshell, if you have been lucky enough to date someone successful, you should in no way be a burden to their success. In the exact same way, however, they should not be a burden to yours either. Do not let anyone tell you your dreams are insignificant or think you deserve to be some kind of supporting actor in your life; be the protagonist.

Could Searching For Your Soulmate Be Why You’re Still Alone?

Are you one of those people who believe there is only one person out there who’s your perfect match? According to Greek mythology, as described in Plato’s “Symposium”,  humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. But god Zeus, fearing their power, split them into two, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves; thus generating the idea of a soulmate.

What’s Wrong With Waiting For Your Soulmate?

In theory, this is a very romantic view of love. But in practice, this seemingly innocuous concept may be the root of your chronic loneliness. For it is the very idea that there is one single person out there who we can share our lives with in perfect harmony that precludes us from making a real effort to make a relationship work with someone who proves to be less-than-perfect, or for excluding the very idea of giving them a chance unless they tick all the boxes.

No Chance At All

If you have imagined your soulmate as a person who needs to possess certain traits – like long flowing hair or an academic career in biochemistry, you could be narrowing down your chances of finding a compatible partner dramatically. Could women who happened to have short hair or a successful career as a chef, have crossed your path? Could it be you never even gave them a chance to prove to you they may be a good match due to your preconceptions?

Half-Baked Attempts

Even if you have somehow been convinced to give these people a try, are you sure you did it wholeheartedly? Did you forgive their minor mistakes and faced their flaws with sincere acceptance, or were you subconsciously sabotaging your relationship, thinking it was doomed to failure because they were not your so-called soulmate? How many of their virtues did you allow yourself to appreciate, and how well did you present yourself to these prospective partners?

To cut a long story short, our world is such a big place, even if there is one person who is our perfect soulmate out there, we may never find each other. Isn’t it a shame to condemn yourself to a life of loneliness and constant disappointment just because you are clinging on to an idea of what love should be?

To Boost Your Chances Of Falling In Love, You Have To Do This, Says Math

How does 1 in 562 sound to you? Not exactly tempting if you were to place a bet, right? You’ll be surprised to hear that these are your actual chances of falling in love on any given day, according to a study by British researchers.

Falling In Love Is All About Maths, Study Finds

Researchers from the University of Bath who enlisted the help of celebrity mathematician Rachel Riley sought to find the odds of falling in love, basing their calculations on 18 key factors; including your location, desired age, physical attractiveness and relationship status.

What they found was that a mere 84,440 out of 47 million adults in the UK fit the average person’s romantic requirements, with the greatest factor affecting your chances of finding love being your age. Apparently, the average UK single person is most likely looking for a partner between 35 and 47 years of age. This leaves a pretty disappointing 17% of the UK population.

While one might expect that it would be harder to find love as one gets older, the researchers found that the age group with the best odds at finding love were between 65 and 74 years old, with a 1 in 304 chance.

Conversely, the age group who have it worse according to the study is that of 18-24 year-olds, with their chances of meeting their better half being 1 in 1,024.

Improve Your Chances Of Falling In Love

Luckily, there are things one can do to boost his chances of finding love. For instance, not turning down invites to after-work drinks raises your odds to meet that special someone by 16%, while talking to people you meet at the gym was found to improve your chances of meeting ‘the one’ by 15%. Perhaps not very surprisingly, it was also concluded that your chances of falling in love are further raised when you meet people through online dating, with a 17% boost.

Further things you can do to raise your odds are meeting people through your common friends (4%), and being set up by your family (a meager 1%), both of which are now considered to be the least effective ways to find your S.O.

In A Nutshell

As Ms. Riley said, “When it comes down to it, love really is a numbers game. Obviously, the more people you make the effort to meet the higher your chances of romantic success. But, as our data suggest, the odds of love can drastically diminish when we get too prescriptive about age, location, looks, and even pet preferences.” This means that falling in love may be hard, but we can raise our chances significantly by keeping an open mind and heart.
