There are many things that can get our attention when considering people to date. Good looks, popularity, money, sense of humor, etc. are on many people's list of requirements.
There is nothing wrong with having any of those things be the reason that we first talk to people. This blog is about reality, not fairy tales or unrealistic expectations. So, yes, none of the things I listed are bad reasons to be initially interested in someone. When it comes to making a decision to actually date a person, though, there is definitely one thing that should always be considered. That brings me to my tip for today:
MINGLE TIP #20: SEEK OUT STRONG CHARACTER IN YOUR DATES
Once you think you might want to consider dating someone, it is a good idea to start trying to get a read on the strength of the person's character. If you are only dating people because they are good looking, popular, rich, funny, etc. then it will eventually get old. There has to be more. So be wise and get to know them on a deeper level before you let it get all the way to the dating stage. You will be glad you did.
Note: Of course, if you want to attract someone who has good character, it's probably a good idea to work on having good character yourself. If you don't have good character of your own then you likely won't have much of a chance with someone who does.
