So I just realized I’ve been doing you a disservice.
Here I am a relationship consultant?
And I haven’t even given you a list.
A list of the kinds of things you should look for in a partner?
Because everybody knows that one of the main responsibilities of a dating and relationship “coach,” is to help you identify all the things you NEED in a partner.
I’m really sorry I’ve been so remiss in my duties.
Must be I’ve been too caught up.
Too busy enjoying love in my life instead.
Sometimes I forget about the rest of you!
How you’re trying to make it all “work.”
I’m going to remedy this oversight now.
Since I know most of your dating coaches have been giving you their thoughts on how to carve up your “nitpicky” list, I thought I should make good on my reputation here and give you my “not picky” list instead.
So here goes:
NUMBER 1: DON’T BE PICKY HOW ATTRACTIVE THEY ARE
You should know this by now.
Its an addiction that has absolutely nothing to do with real love.
This goes for you guys and your search for the hotties.
Of course this includes you girls too, with your dirty little secret.
Your endless quest for the ultimate alpha male.
NUMBER 2: DON’T BE PICKY WHETHER YOU HAVE A LOT IN COMMON
You’re looking for love.
Not a recreational, social convener.
Or a myriad of other traits.
Sure, if you have absolutely zero in common?
You’re not likely to get along much anyway.
But you don’t need to be mirror images either.
It’s your differences that intrigue and make you want to explore.
NUMBER 3: DON’T BE PICKY ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY MAKE
You’re a big girl now.
You can pay your own way.
I know I don’t have to tell this one to you guys.
You think as long as you’re getting sex, you’re good!
But being “out for sex” is never a good way to go.
NUMBER 4: DON’T BE PICKY WHETHER THEY WANT KIDS
You’re a love hunter here.
Not a provider hunter.
NUMBER 5: DON’T BE PICKY ABOUT HOW THEY LIVE
You have your own place and your own life.
They have their life too.
What do you care how they live theirs?
As long as you can do things your way in your space everything should be good.
NUMBER 6: DON’T BE PICKY ABOUT THEIR LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIP GOALS
All you need is desire.
To share real love together.
NUMBER 7: DON’T BE PICKY WHO ELSE THEY LOVE
You can’t guarantee love anyway.
So love with an open hand.
Be open to love where you find it.
Allow your partners to do the same.
There you are!
That’s my list.
I’m pretty sure if you follow it, you should be good to go.
Because romantic love is nothing more than the desire to experience sexual fulfillment and emotional connection that is mutually shared and enjoyed.
Because you value your partner?
And they value you?
You want to share yourselves with each other.
You can’t go wrong with love but YOU can go drastically wrong when you tack anything else on top of it.
That’s why love always fails.
It’s not love that’s failing you
It’s YOU that’s failing love.
So what do you think? Can you quit being so picky about who you love and start enjoying more love in your life?
