I met my wife on Match.com nineteen years ago. By that time, I had figured out what was important from my point of view.
First, I had played “Questions” with someone 2,000 miles away. This question was much harder to answer than I expected:
What are Your Values — Write them down
Seemed quick and easy... It took me two weeks! Once I figured out what “value” actually meant.
Second, you need to know what type of relationship you are looking for:
Her ad said, “Intelligence is important.” Mine said, “Bugs Bunny is my hero.”
My ad on Match.com also said
> I am not looking for a maid, cook, laundress,
> dishwasher or sex object. I’m looking for a partner
> and companion…
It was a perfect match for both of us.
