Is Your Lifestyle Story-worthy?

Everyone is looking for someone interesting to date – it’s part of the adventure of a relationship. If it’s true that personal storytelling is one of the most important parts of flirting, then it’s also true that your life should naturally generate the kind of stories worth telling. This is easier than you might think.

Everyone is looking for someone interesting to date – it’s part of the adventure of a relationship. If it’s true that personal storytelling is one of the most important parts of flirting, then it’s also true that your life should naturally generate the kind of stories worth telling. This is easier than you might think.

You don’t need to go skydiving or star in a movie to have a worthwhile story to tell. Instead, here are some lifestyle practices that will easily and inexpensively generate interesting stories you can tell later while flirting:

  • Commit to doing one thing each week that’s story-worthy. It can be small or large, but if you do one story-worthy thing a week you’ll find that you quickly have a personal story for just about any occasion. Remember, though: it shouldn’t be something that you’d brag about. If you brag, it can often sound like insecurity.
  • Find three go-to sources of local things to do. There are entire websites and mobile applications that list everything going on in your city that week. Find the ones you like best and rely on them to find activities. They do all the work for you. If you’re in a remote part of your country, your local paper/magazine usually will have ideas.
  • Discover pleasures you can later share with a date. Pick something you love that your match might find pleasurable (but also is cheap): good coffee, tea, hot chocolate, wine, a place to watch a sunset, a spot to sit in a park. Go on a mission to find your favorite one near you. This creates two wins: you get to tell the story of your personal crusade for the best cup of hot chocolate and you find places to take dates in the future.
  • If you hear about something unusual, go do it. The more unique the activity, the more likely your match will find it (and you) interesting.
  • Travel. Find interesting things in other places. It doesn’t need to be expensive or far away. “Last weekend I took a train to another city just to see a single painting…”
  • Find random activities to try for the first time. If you’re embarrassingly bad at it, the story is even better. “I’ve decided to try something new every 30 days. Last month I took my first singing lesson. Let me tell how just how poorly this went…”
  • Read news websites and apps to discover stories that other people already find interesting. Reading these can give you plenty of ideas and subject to discuss.

These tips will open up all kinds of new doors in your life, introduce you to new people, give you situations to practice your flirting, and guarantee that you have plenty of material from which to build personal stories.
