If you often find yourself saying things like, “He’s not my type,” “He’s just my type,” or “I don’t date that type of guy” then you are, unfortunately, probably pretty far from finding that special someone. The truth is there is no such thing as a type. Every person out there is a bundle of diverse and complex qualities. You may think someone is a “type” but that’s because you are only seeing one side of their personality. In fact, the traits you think may come along with your perceived type may not even be there at all. Maybe you always date businessmen because you believe they are ambitious, responsible and intelligent. But honestly, there are business men who are those things, and businessmen who aren’t. Your type is deceiving and limiting, so stop chasing it. Here is what happens when you stop dating your type.
You’ll meet other professions
Your type probably falls into a type of work. Maybe, for example, you always date artists. You may not seek out artists, but you seek out an aesthetic or a personality trait that tends to go hand in hand with an artist. Either way, you only know what it’s like to date that profession. When you stop dating your type, you’ll start dating within every profession, which is very entertaining, enlightening and eye-opening.
