30 Day Writing Challenge 6/30: How To Win My Heart

Day 6: Five ways to win your heart

And so, one-fifth of the way into the challenge, we get to the soppy, embarrassing stuff. I'm single and have been all my life (aside from a few weeks during my uni days which I won't go into because criiiiinge), and I'm simultaneously ready to give up on ever finding someone, searching for them wherever I go, and simply waiting for somebody to show up and sweep me off my feet. I'd say I'm pretty easy to please, and to be fair, this list wasn't too difficult to put together. So here are the five surefire ways to win the heart of some lonely twenty-one-year-old who spends way too much time on the Internet. I'm amazed 'tagging me in memes' isn't somewhere on here (although that is important too).
  1. Smiling. So simple, yet so effective. As an introvert, I'm far more likely to engage in conversation with someone who looks warm and approachable than somebody who comes across as intimidating. Sure, looks can be deceiving, and sometimes those who you passed off as sullen or grumpy when you first met could turn out to be the happiest people once you get to know them, but a smile is always an encouraging first step. Smiley people just kinda melt my heart. Maybe that's why I love Emilia Clarke. I don't think I've ever seen a photo of her where she isn't smiling.
  2. Being a good conversationalist. Again, this comes back to me being an introvert. I'm unlikely to make the first move in a social situation unless I'm feeling particularly brave, so somebody who can get the ball rolling is always a plus. Someone who is open-minded enough to discuss any subject is also a bonus. I'm a big fan of people who will throw out random conversation starters until you weigh in. They're the sort of people who seem to be able to make any subject interesting, even if it's about whether you prefer brown or white bread or what colour your socks are.
  3. Introducing me to new music. This is an important one. People who have introduced me to new music always stick in my head. I spent so long trying to get over the guy who introduced me to The 1975 that it's honestly embarrassing to look back at that period of my life. It really makes me smile when people show me a song that they think I'd like, even if I end up not liking it at all. It means that they thought of me and my specific music taste while listening to it, and that makes me feel special. Value the people who introduce you to new music. They might just be the ones who know the way to your heart.
  4. Making me laugh. Another simple one. It's fairly easy to make me laugh, but my sense of humour can get a little weird and niche at times because I spend so much time online. Somebody who knows how to make me laugh until I can't breathe is definitely somebody special. 
  5. Having good manners. Being nice to waiters is a guaranteed way to win my heart. Little things like table manners and saying 'please' and 'thank you' are traits that I really admire in someone, especially since I come across people on a daily basis who don't do these very simple things, and it aggravates me to no end. I get so sick of people who think they're too good to show others respect. Be polite, be respectful. *insert PewDiePie 'respect wamen' meme here*
I'd say I'm pretty easy to please. Come to think of it, you can scrap this list entirely and just settle for buying me some McNuggets. I'll be yours forever.
