This is something that is rarely spoken about and often assumed. It is important not to lie to yourself here. Your objective isn’t what you should want; it is what you actually are seeking. So, before you ask him/her, ask yourself. “What is my objective?” Are you just floating along and playing it by ear? Or are you the type who has mentally mapped out your entire life, including a time frame? Do you want marriage, children and a house in the country with a white picket fence? Or is this going to be a strictly friends with benefits relationship since you are still biding time to be with your ex? The truth shall set you free.
These are the deal breakers. It is important to know yourself for this section. Reflect back on your past relationships. What are some of the qualities that you tend to like and dislike? You need to ask yourself “Would I date me?” Its okay if the answer is no, but asking yourself that question allows you to identify and analyze your own characteristics. Do you want someone who understands you because he/she is just like you or would you prefer that everyday is a mystery and learning/growing experience? Know thy self.

Is there a pattern in this person’s dating history? Some people have a physical and/or personality type that they prefer. Are you that type? If so, are you becoming part of a vicious cycle? If not, why the sudden change in preference? Are you a rebound or just the next ex? The past can predict the future.

Our educational, cultural and religious experiences shape how we see the world. Be careful not to bias a possible match due to superficial differences. People of different backgrounds can have many fundamental similarities while people of similar backgrounds can have vastly different levels of devotion or involvement. Before dismissing or accepting someone’s background, it is a good idea to compare and contrast it with your own.
