Are you afraid of narrowing down your preferences when it comes to finding a partner? Are you looking for a blonde haired, blue eyed, independently wealthy supermodel? You might have your preferences too dialed in!
If you feel you're being reasonable, then heck no! Narrowing it down can absolutely help you find the one!
I just had this discussion with one of my lovelies last week! The clearer you get on what you want and are willing to accept, the easier your decision making process is.
Don't want a drinker, easy to spot. Want someone who wants children, easy enough to discern. Don't second guess yourself! If you know being physically active is a huge priority to you, don't date someone who has no interest in the gym or other activities! Otherwise, you're just trying to conform to someone else's lifestyle or belief system.
Here's your analogy: The pond is full of frogs. The more you can eliminate from the lineup, the fewer you're going to have to kiss! It's easy to catch a frog in a pond full of frogs, but the high quality frogs are hidden in the crowd.
Don't feel bad for those other frogs! They are probably the perfect fit for another Prince or Princess Charming, just not for you!
Hope that helps!
