Cat in the Hat - weird love

  • “Love not in spite of, but BECAUSE of flaws (which applies both to loving yourself and others).”Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

If you are feeling a bit weird this time of year not having a valentine sweetheart, that’s a good thing. Weirdness might be your romance salvation according to the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin’s study Being weird makes you more likely to find love, says this new study”…

  • “Your mum was right. The best thing is to be yourself, in all your weird, unconventional glory. Being weird – or ‘noncomformist’, in fancier terms – makes you more attractive to the opposite sex, a study in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin reports. Researchers studied people who identified as heterosexual or bisexual, asking them to select people from online dating websites, describe their ideal partners and picture dates with people they had just met. They found that both men and women showed a preference for partners who didn’t conform, through clothing, life decisions or opinions.”

The biggest and most common “deal breaker” in a budding romance is being boring. And the weirdest are anything but.
