Top 5 Traits of Lovable People
Over the course of my life, I’ve met my share of loveable people. You know, the ones who bring that undeniable, incredible energy to the room, the kind of person you want to talk to whether it’s with romantic intentions or not. I’ve very fortunate to meet many of them and they all have these 5 traits in common.
- They Listen
We have two ears and one mouth, which means we should be listening more than speaking. Loveable people genuinely take time to listen to what you have to say. When you’re speaking to them, they’re not looking around the room to find someone more interesting to interact with. They don’t interrupt you when you have an opinion to express. These are the people who will make eye contact, ask questions, and engage in conversation. They don’t judge, they listen with passion and take genuine interest in you as a person. Listening shows you genuinely care about what others have to say – it’s a great skill to develop.
- The Use Non-Verbal Communication
So much is said with body language and yet most of us under estimate it. Whether it’s a work or social situation, loveable people tend to have open body language making them very approachable. They stand confidently with great posture, they looked relaxed, they smile, and they make eye contact. Pay attention to your posture the next time you meet someone new. Shake their hands firmly and look them in the eye when you introduce yourself. First impressions count and you only have a chance to make one.
- They Don’t Make It About Them
Have you ever met that person who talks about themselves for hours and never asks a single question about you? Loveable people always show interest in you. They are willing to answer your questions, but they really want to know more about you. A conversation is a two way street and Lovable people know this. They take the time to really get to know you and they are genuinely interested in what you have to say. When someone asks how you’ve been and you’ve just spent 10 minutes telling him or her about your latest holiday, don’t forget to ask the same question back. When you do ask the question, be interested in what they have to day. The next time you are at the grocery store, look the checkout clerk in the eye and ask them how their day is going. It will make such a positive impact on their life. Take the time to build rapport – it will make all the difference in the world.
- They are Human
In a time where we only share the best moments of our lives on social media, sometimes it’s refreshing to show your human side. Loveable people are humble and show it by making light of their shortcomings. Have you ever wondered why some celebreties have such a great following? Take Taylor Swift for example. Yes, she has incredible talent but she is also “real” and loves her fans on a genuine level. She invites fans to her homes, she personally wraps Christmas presents for her fans and she makes light of her preserved shortcomings. She is simply relatable.
- They Have Good Intentions
Coming from a place of good intentions makes you more loveable. Loveable people do things from the goodness of their heart and not to gain from others or cash in a return favor down the road. They do good deeds because it makes them happy to see others happy. If they’re warning you about anything that looks off, it’s because they don’t want to see you get hurt.
Take notice of the loveable people around you. How many of these traits to they have? How many do you have? I would be willing to bet you display most of these on a regular basis. How do I know this? Because I have the best followers in the world and every single one of you are kind, lovable people.
Love & happiness,
