When we think about the kind of person we’d like to date, a number of traits come to mind. We want them to be attractive enough to make our heart race, we want them to have a good sense of humor so as to guarantee a happy life, we want them to have a good job that will offer our future home financial stability, we want them to be faithful, honest, open-minded, tender… but what if you had to choose just one single characteristic? A new survey asked this exact question, and AsianDate brings you the answer.
AsianDate Describes The One Thing Most People Want From Their Dating Partner
A brand new survey, presented in a Business Insider article, asked no less than 400,000 singles about the thing they consider to be the most important trait for a long-term partner. The results were indisputable.
A staggering 82% of women and a 70% of men rated kindness as their number one desirable trait when looking for a long-term partner, leaving behind characteristics that might have been expected to win, such as sexual attraction, emotional connection, even moral values.
Of course, kindness was not the only desirable trait. Next on the list for men were sexual compatibility and emotional connection, while ladies placed emotional connection and moral values after kindness – perhaps appearing to be more emotional than men.
Kind Is Good For The Heart In More Than One Ways
And if you need even more proof that kindness is the key to happiness, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation can provide some: “Acts of kindness create emotional warmth, which releases a hormone known as oxytocin. Oxytocin causes the release of a chemical called nitric oxide, which dilates the blood vessels. This reduces blood pressure and, therefore, oxytocin is known as a ‘cardioprotective’ hormone. It protects the heart by lowering blood pressure.” There you have it. Being nice is also good for your health.
To put it in a nutshell, our advice at AsianDate is that whether you want to keep your heart in good shape or you want to steal your ideal partner’s heart for the long haul, the best way to go about life is to practice acts of love and kindness. As it turns out, it’s the one thing that can make you irresistible above all else.
