Here’s an interesting question now that Valentine’s Day is here:
Do organized people find love faster, or easier than say, so-called disorganized people? Or does it really matter? Read on and weigh in.
We started thinking about this the other day. Being organized is about acknowledging your goals and in most cases, writing them down or (at the very least) making a mental list. You refer to the list every so often, daily, weekly, or for general reference. You have to make sure your goals are somewhat obtainable, real perhaps not too lofty or too low. Or do you? Some people create a wish list. Some write all this in a diary under lock and key. What about a spreadsheet password protected? We'd imagine some even tucking these lists under their pillow at night.
Here are some some basic questions you can ask yourself when organizing yourself for love:
- Write down the age, height and build of your dream mate.
- Write down what kind of job you’d picture them having.
- Make some notes about what hobbies they’ll have, religious beliefs, personal likes and dislikes.
- Get a reality check about deal breakers (smokes, drinks, couch potato).
- Are you looking for a spouse, dating material or a romantic fling?
- (the list can go on and one—you get the point).
Earlier this week in between client appointments, we posted this question on several social networking sites. Here are some of the responses we received on our Twitter account:
And a response we received on our Facebook page:
The idea here is elementary. Organized people make lists, focus and work towards goals. But can they find love faster, easier and find it more fulfilling than a disorganized person who just goes out and wings it?
