According to a recent study of over 80,000 people in the US, twenty eight per cent of women and 48 per cent of men claim they fell in love at first sight, Which will therefore means 72 per cent of women and 52 per cent of would usually fall in love gradually and were open to being ”persuaded”.
Sadly, there still isn’t a magic potion that will make anyone fall in love with you (though alcohol clearly helps!) But science has quite a few suggestions.
The following techniques work best at the beginning of relationships when you’ve first met or started dating rather than to ignite flames that have long flickered out.
And while quite obviously none of them can force someone to fall in love with you against their will, they can nudge the odds a lot higher in your favor. Worth a try, right?….
1. BE EASY TO GET : The more you interact with someone, the more they’ll like you. Several reputable studies show repeated exposure to practically any stimulus makes us like it more (the only time it doesn’t hold true is if our initial reaction to it is negative.)
2…THEN HARD TO GET : Once you’re satisfied they think you’re nice, now start seeing them a little less and less – until they hardly see you at all. Its obvious really, if piles of diamonds suddenly appeared all over the pavement, we’d no longer covet them.
3. DON’T DO NICE THINGS FOR THEM, LET THEM DO NICE THINGS FOR YOU : If you do something nice for someone, it makes you feel good on two levels. To justify the effort or expense, we often over idealize how wonderful they are to deserve it. End result: we like the person more.
4. GIVE THEM THE EYE : In normal conversation, people look at each other between 30 and 60 per cent of the time. it’s possible to tell how ‘in love’ people are by measuring the amount of time they spend gazing adoringly. It also happens to be remarkably handy information if you want to make someone fall in love with you.
5. PRACTICE PUPIL-LO-METRICS : We all know ‘bedroom eyes’ – when we see them, it’s the look of lust. There’s just one thing you need to get bedroom eyes, big pupils. Without exception, the men’s pupils expand on cue. This means if you fancy someone a lot, your pupils are probably already big, black holes.
