Body Type

From time-to-time, you may have heard phrases like 'fat and jolly'. Such phrases indicate that a particular body type will come with a set personality, and over the years some basic scientific investigations have found this to be true. Body personality type experts have found that there are three notable personalities that can be based on a person's physique. Endomorphs, Ectomorphs, and Mesomorphs may sound like comic book aliens, but they are actually body types that apparently come with certain personalities. In the world of dating, this could be used to your advantage. You could use your date's physique to determine whether you will find their personality as attractive as you find them.

Endomorphs

According to William Sheldon, the man who devised the body type personality theory, Endomorphs are round. Typically, an Endomorph will have wide hips and narrow shoulders, a lot of body fat, but relatively slim ankles and wrists. Endomorphs tend to be bubbly and outgoing.

If you are dating an Endomorph, you can expect to have a fun time with someone who is sociable. Much like the stereotype portrayed in popular culture, Endomorphs are great fun, and often have comical personalities. You can expect your date to also be even tempered, and very tolerant. Should your relationship progress beyond the initial first date stage, you may find that they crave comfort and affection. Endomorphs tend to love public displays of affection, and are not afraid to hold hands.

If you are planning a date with an Endomorph and want to know where to take them, head for somewhere with amazing food. Due to their comfort loving nature, Endomorphs are happiest in restaurants. Try to find out what they love to eat in advance, and then choose your date destination accordingly.

Ectomorph

While Ectomorphs tend to be slender, they are not necessarily stick-thin. They will have narrow shoulders and hips, a flat chest, and not much fat around their abdomen. Ectopmorphs also have thin arms and legs.

If you are looking for a date who is artistic and creative, then an Ectomorph is perfect for you. They tend to be deep thinkers, and will enjoy anything and everything cultural. It may take a while to get to know your date. Unlike Endomorphs, you cannot just scratch the surface of an Ectomorph and know everything about them. They are usually socially anxious, and take a while to trust those they are developing a relationship with. As private and emotionally restrained individuals, they are not very romantic. However, as they are very loyal, you can rest assured that once your relationship progresses you will have a partner who will be faithful and trustworthy.

If you are taking an Ectomorph out, try choosing a quiet cocktail bar, or somewhere else that is intimate, such as the cinema. Ectomorphs do not like to be the center of attention, and by taking them somewhere where you can engage in one-on-one interaction, you will be less likely to experience their introvert side in extremes. Eventually, you can take them somewhere a little more adventurous.

Mesomorphs

If you like to date the athletic and sporty types, you are into Mesomorphs. Your typical Mesomorph will have broad shoulders, a narrow waist, lots of muscle, and a slender physique.

If you are dating a Mesomorph, you really are in for a wild ride. As the most confident of all three of Sheldon's personality types, they are not afraid to say what they think. While this may seem obnoxious to many, it can be refreshing for some. In addition to this, they are adventurous and not afraid to try new things. With this sense of adventure comes the need to win and dominate, which means you may experience some power struggles should your relationship progress. Some also believe that Mesomorphs are risky love prospects, as they have a higher tendency to get bored and seek new partners.

Mesomorphs can be hard to impress, so it is natural to feel anxious before taking one out on a date. Try to be creative, and don't be afraid to suggest something crazy like watersports, or even paintballing. By going out on a limb and trying something new, you will strike a chord with your Mesomorph and increase your chances of getting a second date.

Is there any truth behind the body personality type theory?

In reality, not everyone with the above body types will fit the personalities Sheldon has given them. Body types tend to fluctuate between each person, it is hard to determine whether your date will be the perfect match for you in terms of personality based on their physique alone. This isn't really an area of psychology that many experts have investigated fully, and much like Hippocrate's four humours, it has been dismissed as a theory that doesn't meet the modern demands of science. However, as veteran and newbie daters alike have noticed their own patterns when it comes to meeting new people with different body types, more and more people have successfully based their dating tactics on Sheldon's theory. The key to success may therefore be to let their body type guide you, but remain open minded to their individual traits.
