Back in my single days, my friends and I would joke about the single life whenever we found ourselves in between relationships. It always seemed more challenging to connect with a potential mate when we didn’t have one. Whenever we were in a relationship is when we seemed to attract the most men. We often wondered what exactly it was that made us more appealing/attractive to another person once we were involved. And on the other hand we questioned why no one looked our way when we were single and available.
Finally, after brainstorming why this happened, we discovered and began using the term the “look of love”. It made so much sense. If you aren’t familiar with the term “look of love”, allow me to break it down. For the most part, when someone is in a love relationship and it’s going well, they are happy. People who are happy do things differently. They feel better about themselves, maintain their appearance, actually display a glow and are more confident. My friends and I totally bought into the “look of love” concept.
People are attracted to the happier us. Who wouldn’t want to be around someone who feels good, is loving life and enjoying themselves. Healthy relationships feel great. They affect other areas of our lives and allow us to show up in a positive way to the rest of the world.
