How to be Loved
Falling in love is easy. This is something that you can control. You meet someone who has all that you have been looking for. They are nice, honest, and fun to be around. They are also very attractive. Your love grows the longer that you know them. But do they love you? There are certain things that you can do to increase the chances of becoming loved.
You can't expect anyone to love you if you can't even love yourself. Before you get into a serious relationship, you may want to work on your self confidence. No matter what society says, you are great the way you are. Feeling bad about yourself is just a waste of energy and time. You'll find that you are much happier once you allow yourself to love who you are.
There are side effects to loving yourself that can improve your chances of someone loving you. For example, when you have more self confidence, you will treat yourself better. These areas will likely improve:
- Personal hygiene: keeping yourself clean and smelling wonderful
- Physical appearance: with hair, clothing and/or makeup
- Nutrition: you'll surely eat better when you respect yourself more
- Fitness: in line with nutrition, you will care more about your body if you have more confidence.
Be Open to Love
If you want love to come to you, you need to be open to it. You have a much better chance of someone falling in love with you if you are sweet, nice and outgoing. Don't fold your arms or turn away from people you're talking to. Often the most important part of communication is non-verbal. Sit closer to the person that you're with. If you do, they will feel more comfortable about being around you. When you sit far away with a frown on your face, you are showing someone that you aren't ready to love.
When people are asked what they want in a relationship, the majority mentions honesty. For most people, this aspect is at the top of the list. A relationship built on a core of honesty has a much better chance of lasting a long time. When you're honest with your partner, or with a potential mate, you are showing respect to them.
It can often be very hard for people to be honest. In a way, they think that it's easier to lie. If you put the effort into being honest, it shows them that you care and that you are willing to make it work. If you want to be loved, you should strive to keep honesty in your relationship.
As much as you want to be loved, that person should love you for who you are and not who you pretend to be. Anyone can pretend to be everything that his or her mate desires, and while this can lead to a relationship, it won't be fulfilling. This is an extension of honesty. Don't just tell the truth with your words, tell the truth with who you are. Do you like watching cheesy horror movies? Don't hide it. You should want to be loved by someone who has those same interests. This will help you achieve a deeper and more fulfilling love.
If you love yourself, are open to love, are honest, and are being yourself, there's no reason why someone can't fall in love with you. Follow these rules and you will have a much better chance at the relationship that you dream of.
