Color Cues to help you Find Mr. Right
By Alan Stafford
Color preferences say a lot about a person's personality and - perhaps more importantly to some of us - about a person's love style. Bright color preferences reflect outgoing characteristics, while darker colors reflect more subdued and calm qualities. Secondary colors, including purple, orange and green reveal a person's desires, goals and needs in a relationship. Color experts, such as light scientist Jacob Liberman O.D., PhD, and color therapy expert Louanna Wilson of SciArt Company, agree that these colors also tell us something about how different types of personalities attract men and women.
To figure out your color type, start by choosing your favorite color of these three. Even if you don't like any of these, pick the one you like best for the sake of this analysis. Pick the color, green, purple or orange, that most appeals to you. Do not choose the color you prefer for clothing or interior decorating. Identify your love style by finding the description that matches your chosen color.
If you like purple:
You are attracted to a man's energy level. But over time you prefer a man who is calm and makes you feel comfortable. You are dramatic and enthusiastic and have the ability to make a man feel powerful. You are loyal and take relationships very seriously. You also require a good-looking man - surface appearances are important to you. Beware your judgmental nature.
If you like orange:
You are affectionate and loveable and have the ability to see the truth in relationships. You use touch to show people that you care and are listening. While liking nice looking men, you choose to proceed in a relationship because of intelligence. You like smart guys who can teach you things. Initially you scare men off because you hide your sensitive side.
If you like green:
You are nurturing and sweet and come across as bring an attentive listener. People feel comfortable and supported when they are around you. You love an intelligent man and would like to commit to someone who can provide you with a stable and secure life. You want to be with a man who wants a family and children. Watch out greens! Don't be too hasty. Don't throw it all away for false hopes of a stable future.
Though many women - color experts or not - claim that these color clues are consistently accurate for them, remember that they are only a general guide, and are not rules set in stone. Always let your instincts-your inner sense-guide you, and trust your own feelings. Don't let yourself believe that you're falling for someone just because they match your color. There are simply too many other variables at play. Equally, you should never eliminate someone simply because of a color mismatch. If Mr. Right walks into your life with a greenish-orange glow, grab him. True love is more important than true color.
