It is always difficult to attract someone to become your partner for a little while, let alone for the rest of your life. In the post-pandemic world that we are navigating, dating has become even more difficult. People are feeling awkward. They aren’t feeling confident. Many of us have gained weight and experienced mental struggles. Whether you are doing your best to attract a mate or aren’t trying at all, there are some essentials you shouldn’t overlook. It is never easy, but if you have the five things below covered you will have a better chance of attracting a mate who will become a partner.

A Stable Occupation

One of the most essential things for both men and women these days is a stable occupation. Can you take care of yourself? If you can prove that you can look after yourself, you will be a lot more likely to find a partner because they will see you are able to take care of others as well. On the other hand, if you can’t care for yourself, it’s not likely that you will be able to look after others. This isn’t typically what people look for in a partner. The first thing you should focus on is taking care of yourself financially and, in most cases, physically.

A Frequent Exercise Routine

Are you taking care of your body? It’s not that people aren’t attracted to people of all sizes, but if you aren’t looking after yourself it can quickly be seen as unattractive. Not many people want to be with someone who doesn’t care about themselves enough to treat their body well. It may not be the deciding factor, but a frequent exercise routine will change the way you feel about yourself too. If you aren’t working out, you will probably feel bad about your body and what you are doing. More than anything, an exercise routine is vital for your own personal happiness as well as your physical and mental well-being. The relationship will follow.


A huge aspect of attracting a partner is hygiene. If your hygiene isn’t up to par, you won’t be able to find someone simply because of the way you smell. People are putting a lot of effort into the way they smell. Hygiene also impacts the health of your skin and the way you look. If you appear dirty or have a lot of acne, you will be less likely to find a partner. Hygiene is key. Whether you are looking for a partner or not, you will feel a lot better when you keep up your hygiene.

The Way You Smell

Beyond hygiene, the way you smell has a large impact on the way you smell. People go through great lengths to smell good. Not only do people use deodorant and fragrances, but they are also now using pheromone spray to attract partners. Pheromones are the smells of our chemical biology that we naturally excrete, but it has become a practice to use pheromones from other animals that they spray onto themselves. The idea is that these pheromones will attract people with their natural scent. It has become a trend all its own. Whether you are looking for a relationship or not, the way you smell has a large impact on your level of attraction. 


Finally, whether you are looking for a partner or are in the middle of a relationship, communication is essential to any partnership. If you don’t know how to communicate, you won’t be able to sustain the relationship. When you are particularly bad at it, you won’t be able to even find a date. Communication is essential to any type of relationship. It is necessary to find a date. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can learn how to communicate. Take a class. Read a book. Ask an expert. Do whatever you can to improve your communication skills.

Wherever you are at in life, these five essentials will help you attract a mate and find a life partner. Are you looking for someone or are you resigned to being alone? Either way, make sure these things are taken care of and you will feel better about yourself and have a better chance at finding someone.
