When you are young and just starting out in the world as an adult, it’s fun to date, and you can even have a serious relationship or two along the way. But when you are ready to dedicate yourself to your career or are preparing to start your own business, it may be time to slow down and smell the coffee. You have to ask yourself: “Is this person right for me?”
1. The opinion of others does matter. Don’t kid yourself. It’s one thing if mama doesn’t like your romantic interest, but if a whole lot of other family members and even your friends aren’t keen on him/her either, you may need to take a second look. Reality is that unless there is a drastic event to change their opinions, they are not going to change.
