We’re in the age of Instagram and Tinder, where women can share intimate snaps and videos of themselves in a bid to find a mate.
The trend has been growing in popularity over the past year, as men seek women with a similar lifestyle, but they may be lacking in some key traits.
“We have seen a lot of women on Instagram post pictures of themselves and say, ‘Hey, I love the color blue,'” said Susan Wylie, the chief executive of women’s lifestyle brand, Darlene.
“But I think the biggest difference is they don’t want to be a model, they want to look good.
That’s the biggest thing.”
A woman’s looks, Wyl, a former model, said, are more important than her personality.
“Women don’t see themselves in their photos, they see themselves as an actress, a model,” she said.
“They don’t really see themselves that way.
That can make it difficult to meet men.”
And there are other factors.
Some women are more outgoing than others, and their personalities are often different.
Some have higher self-esteem and feel more confident.
Wyl said she’s also noticed that a lot more women prefer to talk to their parents rather than their boyfriends.
It can also be harder to find someone to date because of a lack of confidence in their own abilities, and women tend to shy away from dating men they don.
Wysla, a 31-year-old social media consultant from Seattle, said she prefers to have a partner and date other women who share similar interests and lifestyles.
“I don’t care who you are,” she told WSJ.
“If you’re not hot, you’re going to be rejected.
But if you’re hot, then I don’t think you’re ever going to get a chance with me.”
So what is a good match?
Here are the key factors to consider when searching for a romantic partner.
Body type There’s no denying that women are attracted to body types, but is it really the most important factor when choosing a potential partner?
The beauty blogger Anna Marie Vakoch, a 25-year woman who blogs about body image and beauty, said that while men are more attracted to bigger bodies, women are looking for more muscular or curvy figures.
“It’s a very strong, very beautiful, very confident body type,” she explained.
“There are very few men who look at a bigger body and go, ‘Wow, that’s a lot stronger,'” Vakopch added.
“The more muscular the better.”
Personality Type A woman who likes to be around others, or is a social butterfly, can make a great partner.
“When you find someone who’s into being around others and is willing to go places and meet people and just be who you really are,” said Wysl, the marketing director for Darlen.
“Then it’s just a matter of finding that person.”
Money A lot of men would be interested in dating a woman who has a steady job and earns more than $30,000 a year, she said, but “it’s not really what they are looking to spend that money on.”
Wyl added that the amount of money a woman spends on a relationship can vary wildly.
“A lot of the time it’s not about the money, it’s about how they’re living their life and how they spend money,” she noted.
“You want a woman that wants to be with someone, and you want someone who is willing and willing to be there for her.”
Style A woman can make for a more attractive date than a man who wears jeans and boots, but a woman’s style can make the difference.
“For some women, you want to have this ‘chick in jeans’ kind of look and a really sexy dress,” Wyslap said.
A few years ago, when she was in her mid-30s, she was working at a fashion-forward fashion store in Seattle.
She told WSN that when she met a new man, she “was just a bit confused about what to do, but it wasn’t because I didn’t want him.
He just seemed like the perfect guy.”
Health A woman with a healthy lifestyle, whether it’s exercise, diet, or stress reduction, can be a great fit for a relationship, Wyslas said.
She added that it’s important to get the right health insurance so that women aren’t overlooked when it comes to choosing a partner.
Financial stability A relationship can be hard to find if a woman has health problems or is at risk for having them, she added.
She said that a relationship with a woman with good financial security can be very important.
“That’s what people are saying to me,” she shared.
“What can I say, that when you have a healthy relationship, you don’t need a boyfriend, you can date the people you want.”
