When it comes to attraction, we all have our own preferences. Some of us like men with beards. Some of us like women with blonde hair. You may look for people with certain hobbies, like playing sports. Perhaps you're interested in what someone does for a living. Attraction is a funny thing, since there's no real explanation for why we each have our own preferences when it comes to what we find attractive. With that said, a recent study showed that there is one surprising thing that almost everyone finds attractive in a partner…
A recent study on attraction and what people around the world find attractive in potential partners revealed that there was one particular thing that almost everyone was attracted to. It turns out, over 75% of people who participated in the study said that they are turned on by a partner who can speak multiple languages! Being multi-lingual was shown to be a leading trait that people from all regions of the world found attractive. So why is it that speaking more than one language gets people hot and bothered more than anything else?
We could probably all agree that learning a second (or third…or fourth…) language is not easy. That's why people who speak multiple languages are universally seen as more intelligent. Who doesn't like intelligence in a partner? Intelligence is often regarded as one of the sexiest things in a person, and speaking multiple languages is like a neon sign that screams, “Hey! I'm really smart.” This most likely has a lot to do with why so many people find being multi-lingual as an attractive trait.
Another implication of being multi-lingual is that you are more cultured than the next person. Now who wouldn't want to date someone who was cultured? Being cultured, having spent time in various areas of the world, having knowledge of cultures other than your own… These are all things that most of us can agree are very attractive. So when we find out that someone can speak a variety of languages, we automatically feel more attracted to them.
So you heard it here, folks. If you want people to find you more attractive, it's time to pick up Rosetta Stone or book a trip to another country. You'll have people falling at your feet in no time!
