    Good points. I also constantly tell people (girls and guys) that often our own judgement of who is a good fit for us is terrible. It’s important to leave a window open for dating to surprise you.

    Also: if you’re tossing out perfectly respectable guys because they are too bald or too short then maybe you sort of deserve to be single.

    I used to have a list. It wasn’t terrible. But it wasn’t working either. So I scrapped it.
    These are really good things to put on my new list. Number One obviously being: “Totally into me.”

    I’m totally against people saying they have a “type” unless their “type” is a living, breathing, conscious human who likes them. There is always an exception (or two or two hundred) to the rules you set. It’s like a horoscope or fortune cookie for your future – any situation and person can fit in a broad set of rules so open it up and enjoy.

    For men or women …

    Date/marry the person who makes you feel like a better version of yourself (not to be confused with making you feel like you should be someone else).

    Date/marry the person who you feel lucky to be with, but who also feels lucky to be with you (aka you ech think you got the better deal in the relationship).

    Date/marry the person you want to see every day for the rest of your life.

    Ummm…couldn’t love this more! I feel the longer I wait & years I put behind me, the more and more I know the actual traits that would be best suited for me. I no longer curse the years passing but rather welcome them and the clarity they bring. Amazing Post, Sir!

    It takes most people AGES to figure this out. I guess I’m lucky I learned it early on.

    Another piece of sound advice: Be the kind of person you’d like to date. Chances are, you’ll attract the keepers.

    This post is exactly what I’ve been saying. In my culture, my parents try and filter through all of the guys that aren’t a good fit for me and find the ones that are! It saves so much time and effort from wasting your time dating guys who are just not good for you! Yeah, I’m talking about arranged marriages, but i don’t think there’s any harm if providing option of potential fits? About me personally i’m really young in my early 20’s and I’ve never dated, but i often see alot of my friends dating guys who are just not respecting them! And when i tell me about my lifestyle, they just cant imagine marrying a guy who your parents choose.
