It is no secret that many men prefer independent women these days, and being an independent woman allows you to be more particular when it comes to the men you date. Needing and wanting a man are two separate things. However, it doesn’t hurt to have a few tricks to bag the man of your dreams in mind when buying a house. You should buy a home based on your personal preferences, but a few simple changes can help make it attractive to you and a potential beau.
Buy a Large-Screen TV
For whatever reason, many females don’t really care about a big-screen TV, and we get that. We really do. However, men like the idea of watching the big game or the next episode of The Walking Dead in full 4K glory. Therefore, you might want to think about updating your TV after buying a house. It’s a small change, but honestly, one of the first pieces of “home decor” your potential boyfriend will probably notice. The first step is getting them to prefer watching the game at your house instead of at his buddies.
A Man Cave
If you have an extra room, like a den, or an extra bedroom, think about creating a man cave. Place the large-screen TV in the room with theater recliners for watching the game or gaming. Place a small bar in the corner with a small refrigerator and refreshments. You can decorate the wall with neon signs. Neon Mama has a great selection of neon signs that will go perfectly over the bar.
Improve Your Cuddle Quality
If you are single with dogs or cats, you probably don’t care about the condition of your bed, but a messy and worn-out comforter is not that attractive to a new guy. Purchase a new set of bedding and opt for softer pillows and cotton sheets. Create a desirable place to hunker down for a Netflix night, and you will probably get to have more nights in with your new favorite person. And if you really want, you can bring out your old ratty comfy bedding when he isn’t there.
Get Your Scent On
Did you know that retail shops regularly research pleasurable scents because if a store smells appealing, people are more likely to stay there and shop? If it works for stores that make billions, it can work for your home. When you buy a home, you inherit the smells that come with it, but there is no reason why you have to keep them. Some wall plugs from every gal’s best friend, Bed, Bath, and Body Works is all it takes to turn a musty old home into a much more pleasant one. Even a plug-in from the grocery store will be better than mothballs and dust.
Clutter is simply unattractive regardless of who you are. There have been dozens of sitcom episodes centered on the premise of walking into a date’s apartment to discover it’s a pigstye. Take the time to clean up and invest in storage containers, and your future dream man will be much more impressed with your ability to sort than your ability to horde. You can keep a secret junk closet. After all, it is your home, but wait a few months to show off that side of your home.
Own a Home
Do you know what will impress a man more than any of the above tips? Buying a house. A woman that can buy a house on their own is a woman that doesn’t need a man to survive. Turn the tables on the golddigger scenario by showing any potential man that you can do it on your own, but you would prefer to do it with them. That’s the true secret to landing the man of your dreams.
