Clever people are the ones who tend to be successful in their career life. But what about their relationships? Do you think that they find their true love easily?
According to psychologists, clever people have clearer goals for life comparing it to other people.
So that’s why they may have more luck while finding the right person at the right time.
Below you can find more things clever people do differently to find love.
How To Find The Right Partner, According To Clever People?
1. THINK INTENTIONALLY ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT
Do you want someone who is rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy, intelligent or uneducated? These and other qualities should be things that you can write down in a list to better help you identify the type of person who is right for you.
Researchers at Yale University and the University of Michigan looked at the following traits and preferences for them among people who were looking for the right partner:
* Kind and considerate
* Socially exciting
* Professional status
* Wants children
* Artistic and intelligent
* Politically conservative
* Easygoing and adaptable
The research found that when it comes to preferences in finding the right partner, men more than women preferred mates who were physically attractive and women more than men preferred mates who showed good earning potential and who were college educated.The top three personality traits that people preferred in a potential partner were being kind and considerate, having an exciting personality, and intelligence.
2. GET THE OPINIONS OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
If you’d like to keep your friends after you get married, make sure that they think your partner is a smart choice for you. A word of caution here; clever people know that some of the opinions of their family members may be colored by the traditions that they were raised with. Socially, we have evolved much since your parents’ generation, so take their advice with a grain of salt. Also, cultural norms tend to favor men finding suitable wives who are able to bear children, and you may or may not be looking to have kids.
Researchers at the Institute of Behavioral Sciences in Hungary studied couples who stayed together long-term and found that couples whose wives were younger and less educated than their husbands lasted longer than other couples did. Men looking for younger wives makes biological sense for reproduction, and it is possible that they seek a less educated partner who will be less likely to have a career of her own which might take her away from the house and caring for children.
3. BE THE PERSON YOU WANT TO MEET
Like attracts like, as the Law of Attraction tells us, so if you are looking for a sexy, confident, healthy person, make sure to work on developing those qualities in yourself in order to meet the right partner.
4. FOCUS ON YOUR NEEDS, THEN ON YOUR WANTS
Making sure that you find a partner who can meet your needs is one thing that clever people do when looking for a mate. Take an honest assessment of yourself and what you really need from the right partner to feel happy. Do you need frequent physical touch or do you need a partner who will respect your need for space? Do you need quiet time or do you need an active, fun social life to feel fulfilled? A partner who can meet your needs is a smart find because you know they will listen when you then tell them what you want.
