Ways to Win My Heart

Ways to Win My Heart

For me, a lot of this list applies to both meaningful friendships and the more romantically inclined.

Vulnerability is sexy. And that might be because it’s harder. It exposes your emotions and involves more risk of getting hurt. Opening up and expressing how you feel with me says you trust me enough to do that, something you don’t do with everyone – and I think that’s special.

Tell me a story. I have a healthy curiosity. I want to know a person’s story – their life experiences and what has shaped them into who they are. It helps me connect with someone.

Laughter. I dig wit and love to laugh. Let’s indulge our inner child. Let’s be carefree – act a little “inappropriate” in public and have some fun! When in doubt, let’s go to a comedy club or break into a spontaneous goofy dance. 😉

Curiosity. I admire someone who likes to learn and who asks questions about the world around them. I love to explore and like to have an adventure partner.

Passion. I love when a person’s eyes light up as they talk about a passion. And then there’s that certain chemistry with someone where sexual tension lingers in the air from simply locking eyes with one another.

Appreciate the interior. I like to be acknowledged for being more than a pretty face. Ask questions or compliment me on something that isn’t physical.

Attention. I like to feel desired and to know that you enjoy spending time with me. And if we are at dinner, put your phone away for a little while. I notice when people are engaged or distant. It shows that you’d rather be with me than pin balling around the cyber world.

Kind gestures. I love words – a simple, handwritten note just does something for me. I also love surprising my friends with a card in the mail or random gift. Not only because I hope it brightens their day, but I also like for people to know how much I really appreciate having them in my life.

Are you ready to win my heart?

The OKAY Life- Are you OKAY?

Look around you and look inside you. How many people do you think are settling?

I will tell you: a hell of a lot of people. People are settling every day into okay relationships and okay jobs and an okay life.

And do you know why?

Because okay is comfortable, Okay pays the bills and gives a warm bed at night and allows one to go out with co-workers on a Friday evening to enjoy happy hour.

But do you know what okay is not?

Okay isn’t thrilling, it isn’t passion, it isn’t the reason you get up every day; it isn’t life-changing or unforgettable.

Okay is not the reason you go to bed late and wake up early.

Okay is not the reason you risk absolutely everything you’ve got just for the smallest chance that something amazing could happen.
