I read a study yesterday that was just released through Match.com (2021) that found that the #1 thing that people are looking for in a potential partner is
Emotional Maturity (83% of respondents said this was the most important.
Last year, in 2020, 90% of people said physical attractiveness was the most important consideration when choosing a partner.
That is down to 78% this year.
As a researcher and dating expert, there is ONE thing that this teaches us:
People’s values have changed because of the pandemic, and for dating, that means they care MORE about emotional maturity, connection & intelligence
LESS about how people appear on the outside.
As we head into the holidays, it’s important to reflect on ways we can build emotional maturity & intelligence to help us thrive in our relationships, in our careers & in our health & wellbeing.
How do you develop emotional maturity? I’m glad you asked:
Emotional maturity & intelligence empowers you to rise above and rise up to the level of life that you desire. As you work on these areas, you can also be aware of these areas in your dating relationships and in the workplace.
Growing in self-awareness around your emotional maturity is SO important, and my team & I is here to help.
