The pandemic may not be over-over, but now that most of us are vaccinated (yay!) it’s time to start thinking about dating again. For some of you, after being cooped up at home without any human interaction, dating again sounds exciting; For others, dating again sounds… intimidating. If you’re in the second category, don’t freak out—I’m right there with you, and plenty of other people are feeling a bit out of practice, too. You might feel extra nervous, you might have gained some quarantine weight, or you might be worried that you’ll have nothing to talk about but Netflix shows and banana bread recipes. Stop all of that negativity! I’m going to share a secret that can give you a competitive edge as you get back into the dating game.
You’ve probably heard about pheromones but might not know exactly what they are and how they work. The simplest way to explain pheromones? They’re odorless chemicals that living things naturally excrete, and can help others to see you as more outgoing, confident & attractive. Scientists have studied pheromones in humans, animals, and even plants, and their positive effects are well-documented. Still, these “attraction” chemicals remain a mystery to most people—and as a matchmaker who loves love, I cannot keep this secret to myself. Here are three ways wearing pheromones can help with dating:
1. Pheromones can boost your confidence.
You know how zipping up a killer new dress or getting your hair blown out just right makes you feel confident and ready for a date? Spritzing on some pheromones will have that same effect; They’re an extra tool in your arsenal—just like a sexy pair of heels or a little Botox—that makes you feel like you’ve got this.
2. Pheromones give you an advantage.
Pheromones have one biological purpose: attracting others. By wearing them, you are more likely to attract people, so you’re truly giving yourself a competitive advantage.
3. Pheromones work on any sex/gender.
Whatever your sexual preference, and whoever you want to attract, pheromones work exactly the same way. Wear them, and people around you will find you more attractive. It’s that simple.
Now, need help picking a pheromone product to test-drive on your next date? You may have heard me talk about Eye of Love before—it’s a brand made with high-quality ingredients that I really trust. All of their products are vegan and cruelty-free, which is very important to me. But most important of all is the fact that they smell amazing and they work. They offer an unscented spray, as well as scented products containing pheromones blended with other delicious notes like vanilla, rose, bergamot, or jasmine.
Now, all that’s left for you to do is spritz on some pheromones and get back out there!
