    It doesn't really matter because who the person is right now isn't who he or she will turn out to be. We are always on our best behaviour in the beginning.

    Let the relationship settle in. . .give it 8 or 9 months. THAT is the real person. Make your determination then.

    People are so different nowadays anything can work or not work. The most important things to know are these:

    -Law Breaking (personal safety)
    -Past Children (abandonment)
    -Bad Credit Score (financial safety)
    -Past careers (leechers)

    Other then that, they might be the weirdest person on the planet, but that doesn't make them bad!

    You won't know the real person unless you enter into the relationship.

    My number one rule for dateing and I shared this with son is,"Never date a woman you can't lick in a fight! Reason being, at some point just being yourself is going to piss her off. You don't want to have to tell your friends she took you out!"

    1. Which James Bond they prefer (it has to be Sean Connery)
    2. How many licks it takes them to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop
    3. Whether they will enjoy my many Monty Python references and random singing of Jesus Christ Superstar tunes (they must)

    Gotta have your priorities straight.

    What you need to know before you enter into a relationship is can this person accept you for who you are? Can they let the past stay in the past, and if they can't accept you then what is it they are actually wanting from you?
       My number one rule is. Find out what they are hiding from you, because everyone holds back the jacked up stuff in their lives until they have you on the string. Then Bam they slap you with it later.

    it's o.k. to forget the check list ~~ sometimes they limit you from meeting someone who could have been a great partner!

    That every relationship is going to be like the last. You have to get to know the person, you have to have those arguements to work it out. And have to find some that brings both of you back together again. But relationships are so worth it.

    In a more serious tone, a relationship is much like a mirror. This person is more about you than you care to admit or realize. We project ourselves on to the intimates in our life. Therefore, the yin and yang, the joy and sorrow--all of it.

    They will try you, pull you apart, wound you, heal you, love you and so much more. In order to be prepared for an intimate in your life, know yourself well, as was already mentioned.

    The other person............you need to know the other person. If you don't invest the time necessary to eliminate all of you key concerns about someone's character, you'll get nothing but disappointment for your trouble.

    First thing is you should know what is having a relationship is all about. Knowing first the purpose is the first thing to do for you to achieve a goal. That's the same having relationships having no purpose or goal will lead you to nothing, wasting money, time etc. worse you may even destroy someone's life.
