SENSE OF HUMOR
We’re faced with various challenges that test even the strongest among us. As such, the ability to ease up and laugh once in a while is an important attribute. This laughter can be directed towards others or ourselves, as long as there are good intentions behind such actions. Needless to say, a sense of humor is incredibly attractive – both in friends and potential mates.
PASSION FOR LIFE
Passion breeds purpose, which in turn breeds direction and enthusiasm. To say that life is nothing without a passionate outlook is not an overstatement we all need something to live for, even struggle for.Passion is attractive because it’s often selfless. We can navigate the turbulence of life when we deeply believe in a purpose – be it friends, family, love, work or something else.
Decisiveness is attractive because it shows a sense of direction. This attribute is perhaps most attractive in a potential mate, as the ability to make a difficult decision is something that will ultimately come about. Rashness, on the other hand, is not attractive.
KINDNESS TOWARDS OTHERS AND SELF
For many of us, not only is it an attraction, but a requirement. This means being kind to strangers and friends alike. Showing empathy and displaying random acts of kindness is what it means to be a good human being.
AN OPEN MIND
Why do many of us think of politics and organized religion as emotionally draining? Among many reasons is the division created between groups of people. An open mind can resolve many of these divisions, if only we’d be willing to more widely examine the notion as a society.
