We’re all involved in love and relationships, but how many dating facts do you really know about your own relationship? Here are a few great dating facts that you may never have heard of.
#1 The balance of love
When two people are in love with each other, at any point of time, one person will always love the other person a lot more.
Now this doesn’t mean one person will hate their partner while another person is madly in love with their mate.
What it actually means is that, when two people are in love, only one person plays a great part in holding the relationship together, while the other person just goes along on the ride.
#2 Attractive women
Attractive women who are married to ordinary looking men are more prone to having affairs. Even if the attractive women aren’t really looking for a fling thing, other men will be less intimidated to approach a woman who’s married a guy who is less than perfect.
And it’s only a matter of time before the married woman gives into temptation with a better man.
#3 Attractive men
Attractive men married to average looking women are less prone to having an extra marital affair. Men are physical creatures and place beauty and attractive looks beyond almost everything else.
But when a great looking man chooses to fall in love with a woman who’s not really good looking, it’s some other aspects of her that’s drawn him to fall in love with her. These men are hard to find, and harder to fall for lustful temptations.
#4 Why we fall in love
We’ve all experienced this dating fact, and we know it’s true. Guys are more likely to fall in love based on a girl’s appearance, while girls are more likely to be drawn towards a guy’s behavior. So it’s clear, love at first sight only exists for guys!
While guys fall in love with a girl within the first minute, girls take a long time to really fall for a guy.
#5 The length of love
The longer the courtship in the initial days, the longer the relationship will be.
Flings and wildly intense passionate affairs are great, but they’re not good for long term relationships. If both of you are intensely passionate and end up having sex just about everywhere at the start of a new relationship, you should understand that the foundation of your relationship is sex, and not love. So what happens when the flame of sexual chemistry flickers after a year or so?
Unfortunately, in most cases, the relationship ends too. So if you really want to fall in love with someone, take time to fall in love and understand each other. Build a solid foundation based on love instead of anything else.
#6 Physical touches
Physical intimacy and physical closeness increases the chance of falling in love. Friends fall in love all the time [Read: Falling for a friend]. Colleagues at work end up having affairs or falling in love all the time. Physical contact creates an aphrodisiacal impact on members of the opposite sex. Touchy feely flirting may actually be a great way to get someone to fall in love with you.
So remember this the next time you’re trying to woo someone. Try and spend more time with your crush in person, instead of speaking over the phone. And your crush might just end up falling in love with you.
#7 Affairs are more sexually exciting
This is a dating fact that’s not really great to hear, but it’s true. Affairs are always more sexually exciting than long term relationships. It’s unfortunate but true. Having sex with someone outside the relationship will always be much more exciting and sexually gratifying than having sex with your own partner from a long term relationship.
Having sex with someone new for the first time may be one of the reasons, but the bigger reason is the risk that you’re taking to have an affair. The adrenalin rush of having sex with someone new, coupled with the fear of getting caught heightens the sexual excitement to a frenzy that can’t be matched by long term sex.
#8 Love makes you happy and sad
People who are in relationships and love their partner are the happiest people, and are more satisfied with their life than most happy singles. At the same time, people who are in a relationship, but are unhappy with their partner, find themselves more depressed and hate their life a lot more than most singles who are depressed.
#9 Making someone love you
Here’s a dating fact that can play in your favor. If you ever want someone to fall in love with you, plan an unconventional date strategy. You could go to a restaurant for the first date, and go to an amusement park or something just as scary and thrilling for the second date. By going to a restaurant, both of you can learn more about each other which is the most important step to create an emotional connection.
Going to an amusement park on the second date can actually make your date fall in love with you. Studies have shown that scary rides like roller coasters and Ferris wheels increase the production of adrenalin, which also simulates arousal which can actually increase the attraction between two people. This is particularly obvious for girls.
There are so many interesting things that love can do to us, and these dating facts are just a few unique facts of many that we experience all the time.
