We all have this little list of standards and qualities of what it is we want in a mate and ideally, that’s what makes up our “type”. For some women, it can be a man who’s tall, dark and muscular and for some guys, it can be a woman with fire engine red hair, a nice set of breasts and a J.Lo booty to round it all out. And that’s good. By all means, you have a right to like whatever it is that you like but have you ever thought that after several bad dates and three failed relationships maybe your type is just a bit… wrong? Don’t trip, we all do. We get so wrapped up in finding someone who fits the bill that we treat the dating process more like an auction instead of the interview of a lifetime. Opposites truly do attract and today, I’m going to tell you why it’s okay to date someone who is not your type.
After a while of dating only people who fit your ‘type’ criteria, the dating game gets eerily familiar. You wind up being attracted to some of the same television shows, musics, foods and things of that nature but dating someone who’s not your type means you can broaden your outlook on a host of different things. Dating someone who doesn’t fit the bill means you will get to learn brand new cultures, hobbies, and will probably discover a whole new approach to life, too! That thai place you wanted to go to dinner at but couldn’t because your ex was really into Italian food, just so happens to be your new interests favorite spot!
