How Do You Know You Really Like Someone?

One of the things I’ve been thinking about during this drinking/dating/sex sabbatical of mine is how you know you actually like someone. I’ve come to realize that in addition to being an extreme emotions junkie, I’m what Dr. Drew might call a “love-a-holic.” A motivating factor in my desire to sleep with someone is for that amazing but temporary feeling of love and desire and wholeness that washes over me when I’m in bed with them. I lovvvvve the feeling of being in love, feeling love, having a crush, etc. Looking back, I’ve felt love for people that I barely know, let alone know well enough to deduce if I actually like them. So, in the last 20 days of being sober and date/sex-free, I’ve felt the feelings of liking someone hit me and instead of obsessing over them and rolling around in that feeling of like, I’ve tried to think about why I have that feeling.

Dater X: Feeling Attracted To Someone Who Isn’t That Attractive

What I’m about to say isn’t going to make you love me. It isn’t PC, and it certainly wouldn’t get high marks from the judges in a beauty pageant question and answer round. It is shallow, and a thing that none of us are supposed to say. But it is also honest:

Looks matter to me. Sometimes a lot. Keep reading »

How To Get A Man’s Attention

Here’s the scenario: you meet a new guy and within the first 10 seconds you know whether you’re attracted to each other or not. Happens all the time, right? But what you may not realize is that within those first ten seconds, the guy is spending half that time checking out a specific feature of yours. Think you know what it is? Find out if you’re right after the jump. Keep reading »

Research Says Tilt Your Head To Attract A Mate

In our relationship study of the day, researchers from University of Newcastle, Australia have discovered that attractiveness is all in the tilt of a head. OK, maybe it’s not all in the tilt of a head, but research indicates that women and men can make themselves more attractive to the opposite sex by angling their face a certain way. In the study, participants were shown “computer-generated, three-dimensional models of male and female faces” and were asked to rate each for attractiveness, masculinity and femininity as they were “tilted up and down in five different positions.” Keep reading »

For One-Night Stands: Men Are Into A Hot Bod, Not A Pretty Face

Attraction is complicated – it’s about his personality, how he smiles, how he moves, and so much more. But in that first initial encounter it’s all about the face, right? Well, this may come as the no-duh news of the week, but for dudes it depends. A recent psychology study out of the University of Texas shows both men and women consider the face the most important indicator of attraction when it comes to long-term relationships, but when it comes to one-night stands, men are more interested in a woman’s body.

Men Only Need A Millisecond To Decide They Want Us

A new study shows that dudes only need a millisecond to determine if they want a woman as a potential mate. Translation: they know if they want to sleep with you before you even open your mouth. The study mapped the brain waves of 20 men and women when shown the faces of potential partners of the opposite sex, ranging from ugly to very attractive. The results? The men were very easily distracted by pics of beautiful women and made snap judgments within a millisecond of seeing her face. Shocker! But scientists say that the results shouldn’t make us think of men as shallow. This is merely an ancient evolutionary reflex of their lizard brains to help them produce lots of children. A pretty face is, after all, a sign of fertility. Women, on the other hand, proved to be undeterred by the pics of hot men. Why? Because we are looking for other things in a mate like reliability, personality, and ability to commit. Yet another study that proves that men and women are evolutionarily incompatible.
