I am often surprised at the people I see coupled up – in a good way. Many of the happiest couples I know tell me that when they first met their mate, they had no idea they would end up with them. In other words, if they had been looking for their so called type – they would not have found their significant other.
So it makes me wonder if we actually know what we want? When we can not predict attraction, chemistry, or who we fall for, why do we rule out potential people because of baggage?
The really confusing part is when someone adamantly states they aren’t interested in XYZ type but somehow ends up with the carbon copy of XYZ. What does that mean about our dating choices – good and bad?
Are we deciding who to date based on what we think/say we want or is it much more random?
When someone asks what you are seeking in a mate, do you tell them? Are you describing someone that you have met in the past or is it a fictional character that can’t ever exist in the real world?
How realistic are we when it comes to what we want in a mate?
