The common dating phrase that I'm sure you've heard is that "looks don't matter", which you never believed anyway. But She Knows looked into it, and it's seeming like looks don't matter as much as you'd think. Creativity is something that many more people look for, and studies show that it will get you more dates.

When it comes to attracting a partner, creativity and intelligence can outweigh physical attraction when it comes to finding someone for the long term. Creativity shows, studies are saying, that this person is going to put effort into a relationship and make it a priority.

Our biological instincts turn on when we meet someone who is creative, smart and interesting because they are the best bet in a partner for a lifetime, not just a weekend. So, if you're single, consider investing time in a new hobby that shows off your artistic and creative side. Who knows who you will attract!
