Whether you’re a bachelor looking for a loving wife and a nice home-cooked meal, or a single woman who would love nothing better than a pair of broad shoulders to lean against at night when you watch TV, feng shui can be employed to help you attract a mate or improve your odds if you’re on a date.
Here are some pointers you can use in your home and when you’re on a date to help you attract a new love interest to your life!
Banish these symbols in the bedroom.
Although water is good fortune for wealth in feng shui, in the bedroom it dampens passion. Better to avoid water symbols in the bedroom. Remove images of water and other objects like fish figurines or shells. Instead, make sure the lamps are turned on for both sides of the bed and are kept dim, but lit.
The same is true for flowers. Remove all flowers from your bedroom, including silk, real, dried or printed on your bedding or curtains. Flowers compete with a man’s energy and add yang energy — something you’re looking to attract.
Wear your love colors on a date.
To know what your love colors are be sure to check your “love and romance” direction according to your kua number.

Sit in your love directions when you go out on a date.
Part of personal feng shui is working to activate your personal directions. If you’re on a date, try to sit in your love directions.
North Sit facing north or south
South Sit facing south or north
East/SE Sit facing east or southeast
West/NW Sit facing west or northwest
SW/NE Sit facing southwest or northeast
Bachelors need feminine energy in their homes.
Bachelor homes need feminine energy to attract a mate. If you’re a single man and you’ve been looking for a suitable marriage partner (not to mention a nice home cooked meal ;)), make sure there is feminine energy in your home to attract a woman to your life.
A great way is to include pictures of flowers that portray feminine beauty such as magnolias, peonies or family luck like the orchid, or romantic fortune is the lotus flower with a bud. Alternatively, be sure to have a picture of women who look happy and attractive and be sure to employ pairs of objects (two lamps, two vases) to represent pairing energy. This image shows a pair of magnolias — something that a woman would find very attractive and balance a masculine home.
Women need bright energy to attract a male.
Rather than pinks and pale blues in the bedroom or flower motifs, women should aim to add a little vibrant energy. Balance your bedroom colors with just a little red, such as pillow shams. Bright colors are appealing to men and in the bedroom, these will help activate your love chi.
When you go out, avoid the LBD (little black dress) and opt for a vibrant red dress or blouse. Just remember the song, “Lady in Red.” There’s something about a woman in red that attracts a man – and remember, there’s no song about “Lady in Black.”
Single women need male energy to draw a husband.
If you’re looking for that special man in your life, be sure that your home includes some masculine energy. Look for symbols that speak to masculine chi, such as dragons or horses. Display these in your living room and not in the bedroom. Avoid overly dark colors in the house and play upbeat music to stimulate yang chi in the house. Keep the southwest brightly lit and add a photograph or picture of a man or a couple that you find attractive in this corner.
Pair up around the house.
It’s important that singles’ apartments and homes reflect a pairing energy. A painting of two flowers is an excellent way to enhance your pairing energy. A pair of lamps on either side of the bed also energize the pairing chi. Be careful of photographs and images of single, solo items.
One woman had a single image of her dog painted in oil and hung it over her bed. That dog was her only companion, too. Instead, her pet should have hung in the NW corner of the living room to energize this direction, coincidentally the direction of the man.
