Most often, when we meet people who catch our attention online, we don’t really dissect their personality. All that matters is that they have captivated our attention. So, we entertain the notion of a potential relationship. If the person has attractive qualities, why not right?
The Dark Side Of Attractive Qualities
We don’t really think twice about a person who has seemingly attractive qualities. When we feel good while talking to the person, we don’t need other forms of validation that the person is a good companion. In the long run, however, we might eventually see the dark side of these attractive qualities:
1. Charming and Charismatic
What’s so bad about these attractive qualities? Nothing at the start. However, they can be linked to manipulation, being controlling, and self-absorbed. Unfortunately, there’s a thin line between being charismatic and being manipulative. You’ll know that a person is being manipulative if he or she is just being charming for personal gain.
2. Being Bold
Boldness is admired by many. What we don’t see, however, is that a person who is too bold will often act out of impulse. This means that he or she can make decisions without thinking twice about them. In short, they may lack responsibility.
3. Being Confident
A person who is confident can border into being narcissistic. Of course, most of us won’t see this during the first, second or even third date. A person who is narcissistic will want things to be done their way so we have to watch out as we interact with someone who is seemingly confident.
At the start, these attractive qualities will be enough to leave anyone swooning. However, as you go along with your relationship or as your dating progresses, you will see the flaws in the person. Generally, flaws are nothing to worry about because no one is perfect. However, if a person flaws include manipulation and other characteristics that can be detrimental to you or your potential relationship, then it’s best to think twice. Let’s take the time to get to know someone first. For more dating tips, read other posts and reviews on the blog.
