While there are many different components to being a mindful person and a mindful dater, a key attribute is kindness. Research shows that kindness increases empathy and sense of social connection, which means you‘ll have an easier time relating to your date.
It also increases positive feelings like love, contentment, gratitude, and joy – and who wouldn’t want to be around more of that? Plus, kindness is very attractive. Studies have shown that when people associate positive personality traits like kindness, honesty, and being a team player with someone, they actually perceive them as being more attractive.
