I’ve seen so many people date for the wrong reasons – myself included. It’s easy to date for “marketing.” (“Will the person like me? Am I attractive enough? Will I be what they are looking for? Will they reject me?”) Now, on the other hand, if you date for values and non-negotiables, not only will the connection be rich and deep off the bat, but think about how many tears, sleepless nights, and angsty text messages you can skip… So… I’m starting a new campaign today, “DATE FOR VALUES!”… See you on the campaign trail! (BTW: Not looking for romance? This still applies: Hiring people, meeting new friends, looking for new groups, and more).
