When Looking for Dating Compatibility, Here’s a Trait Too Often Overlooked. It’s Our Non-TV Story of the Day

Friendliness, intelligence, humor — those are pretty common traits people mention when talking about dating compatibility.

As an article at Yahoo Health explains, “Similar values, physical attraction, an emotional connection — there are some factors that are non-negotiable when it comes to choosing the person you spend the rest of your life with. But a new study from the University of Zurich suggests that — while that’s all well and good — men and women alike also look for a slew of other traits in a person, including a partner who’s playful.

The article goes on to quote Patti Feinstein, “a Chicago-based matchmaker and dating coach.”

Says Feinstein, “First dates fail because people are afraid to do activities — it seems cheap.” She “adds that both sexes can become caught up in the materialistic, how-nice-of-a-restaurant-can-he-afford, types of issues that come with a standard dinner and a movie date,” the article notes.

The story quotes Feinstein saying: “[G]oing to an arcade, playing on the swings, or skating and not worrying about falling — things you would have done as a kid — help bring your natural bonding styles out.”
