It seems common sense is becoming a rare trait these days and since we all seek a decent partner, it’s just another thing we have to look out for when deciding who deserve our time and affection. The best part about common sense is that it’s easy to spot and a few questions about how they would handle specific situations should give you all the answers you need. For effective starter questions, you can ask their opinions on safe sex, drugs, and abuse. Since we are talking about common sense, most of these tips could easily be applied to both Sugar relationships and regular relationships from the very beginning.
Before even going out on a first date, determine if their lifestyle, hobbies, interests, character, and values are compatible with yours. Not everything has to be be completely in sync and opposites definitely do attract but there has to be at least a few things that bond your personalities to build a worth while relationship.
Accept a Bad Date
Bad dates happen and there’s not much you can do to win over someone that is just no longer interested in you. It’s best to walk away with grace and honor, rather than dive into a potentially desperate situation. A bad date can simply be seen as a lesson to learn so pick yourself up and grow from there to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
If you’re not looking to waste your time in the dating game, it’s always best to be yourself. No matter how much you try to hide or fight it, eventually the real you will always reveal itself. The more honest and open you are about yourself, the easier you’ll find someone that truly enjoy your company and that’s a great feeling.
Being respectful is a sign of a confident, successful, and intelligent individual. Lack of respect and hot tempers show insecurity, immaturity, and lack of control. If your date shows any sign of these traits, it’s best you stop dating them and let them know why you’re no longer interested so maybe they can realize they have an issue.
Limit The Drinking
Drinking is known to be the cause and solution to all of life’s problems. If you don’t want to spiral down that never ending road, you’ll want to limit your drinking and avoid anyone that drinks so much they can’t control themselves in public. If you’re the type of person that will get drunk no matter what, at least do it in a private, safe setting.
If you’re a smoker or if you really care that someone you date smokes, it’s a question that needs an answer before you start dating. Smoking can be a huge deal breaker for some and unless you’re looking to waste your time or ready to quit smoking, it’s best you discuss your habits and read their profile for their answer on the smoking subject.
For no reason should one abandon their friends, family, hobbies, pets, or social life once they start dating someone new. Anyone that actually cares about you will want you to have a healthy and normal relationship with their close friends and family. Whenever someone seeks to control aspects of your person life, it a good sign to end the relationship.
