Dating: Are you a good judge of character?

I believe the most effective way to improve your dating results is to be mindful of a person’s character. We can all be drawn to the outside but it’s the inside that makes us want to stick around.

I know we all put our best foot forward when we are meeting and exchanging phone numbers. Once it goes past the superficial things, it’s good practice to observe how a person handles situations, what their outlook on life is, and how compatible these things are to you.

Do you think that you are a good judge of character? How smart are you when it comes to figuring out whether or not the person is a good match to your personality and character?

I admit that I haven’t always trusted my judgment in the past. It’s partly why I get so cautious because I want to be clear on who the person is, as opposed to who I want them to be.

I think a lot of the dating misadventures we go through stem from the problems single people have figuring out who is a good match based on character.

How do you know when you are seeing a person’s real character?

i know we’re off on the TSA but this was too weird:

A court in the northwestern German city of Muenster has banned a man from tattooing his pony with the logo of British rock band the Rolling Stones (The owner said he wanted to make his pony “more unique and beautiful” with the tattoo) citing specific law against “tattooing warm-blooded vertebrates”. whats more hysterical, that he wanted to give the animal the tatt (already had it preshaved and stencil applied) or that they actually have a law against this specific thing? how many folks are looking to tattoo their animals??? (not referring to things like farm brands and such)

“Crakers” A non-saltly snack that goes well with Juiky. It brings on uncontrolable laughter when comsumed.
