Single’s Guide to Dating in the City

Posted by Kelleher International on Sep 2, 2016 12:53:00 PM

shutterstock_116686675.jpgDating in the city seems easy. There are more proverbial fish in the sea, so it makes sense to assume dating prospects would also increase.

shutterstock_106790315.jpgAttraction is the biggest stepping stone in any relationship. The biggest house, newest car and most successful career are all great, but hold little bearing when it comes to whether your date will actually find you attractive. There are a few traits we’ve noticed all women seem to love in a man – and these traits are surprisingly difficult to cultivate. The few men who do possess these qualities find their dating pools are much larger, which ultimately leads to more control over their own dating lives and an easier time finding the woman they have dreamed of. Want to become irresistible? Here are our recommendations:
