What attracts most people to someone is the fact that they have a life!
What that means is that your life doesn’t revolve around your other half.
Bottom line, our attitude is more likely to create opportunities for us. Be cautious of giving up or limiting the time you spend doing things for "you", whether this be exercise, the beach, reading, cooking, spending time with friends, etc.
Leave your carry-on luggage packed full of negativity at baggage claim. Finding a romantic connection can be so exciting and exhilarating that it’s easy to lose sight of life before meeting this person.
If you are going above and beyond and in essence being “phony” just to impress your partner in the early stages, well you’re only making things difficult on yourself because your new beau actually believes that you are sweet and romantic ALL THE TIME.
