What does it mean to be attractive? Does it mean you have perfect washboard abs and pearly white teeth? Does it mean you have a high-powered job and drive an expensive car? Or is attractiveness something less superficial?
It can be confusing navigating relationships when standards of attractiveness vary so wildly. We can become anxious about meeting the expectations of our prospective or long-term partner regarding our attractiveness. However, it doesn’t need to be so complicated. I see attractiveness as an inner quality that shines through, drawing others to want to be close to you. Physical beauty can part of attractiveness for some, but it’s not the most important part.
In this episode, I bust 3 myths that exist in popular culture about what causes people to be attracted to one another. Whether you are single or in a committed relationship, the information in this episode will help you learn to be more attractive to your partner or to those you are seeking relationship with!
