There’s no doubt about it: falling in love is the most amazing, exciting, terrific, wonderful, outstanding . . . well, okay, you get the picture already. Falling in love is pretty doggone great. And if you’re wondering, there are tons of reasons to fall in love, too. Of course, if you’re looking for a reason to fall in love, my first question is this: why the heck do you need one, knucklehead?
Ah, but there are plenty of neigh-sayers out there who think that falling in love is overrated. Romance is for fools, they say . . . and Cupid is never gonna catch me! They love their freedom, they cherish their independence, and they fawn over their self-reliance. So if you’re already in love, there’s no need to keep reading; this post is for the skeptics who need a little inspiration.
Need some reasons why falling in love is a smart move? Here’s a list of ten of them for you, but they certainly aren’t the only reasons why you should get involved in a romantic relationship as soon as possible. And for you romantic veterans who don’t need convincing, why not add a few reasons of your own in the comment section of this post? We’d love to hear from you.
And if this post does end up convincing you to give love a try, don’t go rushing out and falling head over heals for someone right away. Take your time, for crying out loud.
Top Ten Reasons Why You Should Fall In Love
1. Falling in love makes you smile all the darn time.
Ever seen the guy who’s always tackling everything life throws at him with optimism and a grin? Well that dude’s probably in love. And before you poke fun at him, you should know that you’re more likely to succeed at everything you do if you can tackle it with a smile on your face. So go ahead, stay away from love and keep frowning. Just get used to always being one step behind of the guy who’s in love and smiling.
2. Falling in love makes you better looking.
No, really, it does. And I’m not just talking about a healthy glow, either. When we’re in love, we’re more likely to take better care of ourselves, as you’ll see in number seven, and take more pride in our appearance. When you have a reason to look good, you do look good.
3. Falling in love makes you love yourself more, too.
Like we’ve said before, being in a romantic, loving relationship has a way of helping you to learn to love yourself, too. Most of us don’t realize that we have so many good qualities, and seeing ourself through the eyes of a person who is crazy about us can be one heck of an exhilarating experience.
4. Falling in love makes you richer.
This isn’t just our opinion. Countless studies have proved that people in long-term, committed romantic relationships go on to earn more than people who stay single. So if you won’t fall in love for your heart’s sake, do it for your wallet.
5. Falling in love makes you see stuff you didn’t notice before.
No, I don’t mean pink elephants or UFO’s. The stuff you notice when you’re in love was always there, you just never thought it was important enough to pay attention to before. When you’re truly in love you are able to take things slower, be more observant, notice more details, and have a greater understanding of things.
6. Falling in love makes you a nicer person.
This one is a no-brainer. It’s tough to be mean to everyone when there’s a wonderful person in your life who’s making every day special and exciting. I mean, it’s no cure-all if you’re a complete jerk, but it can at least take the edge off a little.
7. Falling in love makes you take better care of yourself.
Like I said in number two, falling in love makes you look better because it gets you in better shape. Being in love with someone is a great way to get motivated to become a healthier person, lose weight, and take better overall care of yourself. It won’t make you into a fitness guru or anything, but it’s easier to go for a jog when you know there’s a special person in your life.
8. Falling in love gives you something to dedicate yourself to.
It’s a little-known fact that having something to dedicate yourself to makes you more successful at everything you try to do. That something can be a concept or an idea, but it’s much better and more satisfying if it’s a person. And making the person you love proud of you is one heck of a great feeling.
9. Falling in love makes you grow up . . . in a good way.
Being more grown-up isn’t always a good thing . . . in fact, there are plenty of childlike qualities that go a long way to help a romantic relationship and make it more fun and exciting. But being in love will also make you more responsible, more mature, and more careful. And if you can master those qualities while still letting yourself have fun, you’ll have one heck of a great relationship.
10. Falling in love makes you live longer.
Don’t take our word for it. It’s, like, totally common knowledge that people who are in long-term, loving relationships simply live longer than people who aren’t. Want to live to see your 100th birthday? Then you better start looking for that special someone to celebrate it with.
