(Thank you, Bruno Mars.) Keep your eye on the types of people who fit with your overall lifestyle When you’re in your 20s and even 30s, you may choose to date people based more on appearance, social image, or sexual attraction.
By the time you hit 40, you should have learned that it’s most savvy to base your romantic decisions on other more meaningful factors: reliability, consistency, financial establishment, hobbies, and future goals.
By now, you have a sense of who the safe types are, and who the types are who shouldn’t be trusted or who seem unreliable or flaky.
