A lot of guys in their twenties are happy with the single life. Free to choose and live the life you want with no strings attached. Discovering who you are and what you want to become. Some are too busy to date, and others like to play the field because they are not ready for commitment. Regardless of where you are on your personal journey to happiness, some guys want to find someone to spend the rest of their life with. Being in love and a happy relationship is what brings them the most happiness. I think that’s how it goes for a lot of people.
Sometimes you get lucky and just stumble upon someone who wants the same things you do, you are attracted to each other, you like the same things, and everything works magically. Other times it’s your best friend that you told everything to and could rely on for anything, and you happen to fall in love with each other after a few years. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t get that lucky. That’s why dating sites have become so popular in 2017. Sites and apps like match.com, zoosk.com, eHarmony, Tinder, and Bumble have become engaging ways to get connected with people who want the same things you do.
If you are a single guy looking for a relationship you have come to the right place! I have dug through the data and found resources to help you on your foot in the door with a girl! Match.com did a survey that I found on dailymail that surveyed 5481 single people ages 21 and older to discover what are “must-haves” for attractiveness women want when being asked on a date and the top things a woman needs in a relationship. All the following information comes from the women in the survey so without further ado, let’s get started.
What Do You Need to Attract a Women For a Date?
According to the survey, the most important “must-haves” for a date with women is your teeth! If you have a healthy-looking smile with straight white teeth, you are more likely to get a “yes” instead of a “No!” We are not just saying this because we are a dental office. It’s the truth! Multiple sources that have done interviews or surveys about human attractiveness say that healthy looking teeth are a key indicator of a guy’s overall hygiene habits. Think about the last time you met someone new. The first thing you probably noticed or fixated on was how their teeth looked. If your teeth look yellow and unhealthy, you won’t get as many dates as you could with a mouth with straight white teeth.
The second date “must-have” at is proper grammar. 69% of the women in the survey believe good grammar is required for a date. Find that surprising? So when you are texting a girl or message a girl for the first time, you should probably put a little more effort into your text messages. Proofread them and ensure that you are spelling words correctly. I believe the reason that grammar is so important to women is that they use grammar as a baseline judgment for intelligence. So the more mistakes you make, the less intelligent you seem, which is not good if you are trying to attract someone.
The third date “must-have” is clothing. 58% of the women in the survey said that how you are dressed plays a significant role in dating. Take some time to learn about a style that you like and try your best to fit into that style if you want a date. But remember to still be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you’re not because then what’s the point of getting a date?
The fourth “must-have” was stylish hair! Having a stylish hairdo is important to attract women so try some different styles and find one that matches your facial structure.
The fifth “must-have” for a date is clean hands and nails. What’s your first impression when you see someone with dirty nails? For some women, it’s probably that they don’t take care of yourself and that you are dirty. So even if you work a dirty job, make sure you take time to clean your nails.
The sixth “must-have” for a date is have/not having a tattoo. Of course, this is 100% depending on what the person finds attractive. If they like tattoos and you have a few, then you’re in good shape. If the opposite is true, then you might not score a date. If not, there are plenty of fish in the sea!
The seventh “must-have” is your shoes. If you are wearing shoes with holes in them or really old looking shoes you could be missing out on some potential dates.
Coming in at number 8 for dating “must-haves” is the car you drive. It’s not the most important thing when it comes to dating but having a nicer car can certainly help.
The ninth “must-have” is an accent. Now don’t try and make a fake accent to impress a girl on a date. That’s not what is being said here. If you are from another country and happen to have an accent you may have a better chance of getting a date than a guy without an accent.
The tenth and final important “must-have” women have for a date are the electronics you are carrying. I don’t believe this holds much ground because only 10% of women said this was a “must-have” for a date. So if you don’t have the best or most up-to-date technology, you can still land a date!
Now that we know what attractiveness traits are important to women let’s talk about the thing’s that are not very important.
– Is Eager to Marry
– Eat Similar Foods
– Wants to Have Children, Shares My Political Beliefs
– Has Similar Education Level
– Has the Same Ethnic Background as Mine
Remember these things when you are writing your bio on a dating website or if you are on a date don’t mention the things above because you could come off as less attractive.
Let’s talk about what women need in a relationship according to women.
According to the survey:
– 84% Treats me with Respect
– 77% Someone I can trust and confide in
– 58% Has a sense of Humor/Makes me Laugh
– 47% Shares the Save Values as I Do
– 46% Comfortable Communicating Needs/Wants
If you read this list and you feel like these are things that you can’t provide to your women, then it may be best not to date yet. But if you can provide these things for her, you are in for a happy relationship!
As a personal disclaimer as the writer of this post, I want to say that these are just statistics from a survey. Some girls agree with the results of the study and some may not. It all depends on who you are and what you are attracted to. For a lot of girls, the list for “must-haves” for a date are in different orders. However, for the top two “must-haves” (teeth and grammar) it seems that the percentage of girls who find these valuable means you can capitalize on the opportunity. The same goes for what women need in a relationship. They want to be treated with respect and to fall in love with someone they can trust. I bet you probably feel the same way.
A final note as this article concludes is to make sure you are dating for the right reasons. If you are dating someone to fill an empty void in your life, you may be dating for the wrong reasons. If you want to date someone because you want to have a partner you can take care of and love without limits, then you are on the right path. My past relationships hadn’t worked when I was dating for me. When I wanted things my way or only dated to fill some sort empty void, my relationships crumbled. When I went into a relationship with selflessness, I found more meaningful love and happiness that lasted longer than any other relationship I had.
