What are worthy criteria to be in love?Page 1 of 1    
I don't know beershark, according to all the self proclaimed really nice guys, all women want are douchebagasshats. thus it is little surprise that the ultimate in douchebagasshats like Hitler and Castro had Gf's...

Love is an odd thing... Sometimes you can fall on your face and fall in love with a total douchebagasshat, and hate like hell that you have, and then sometimes you can fall in love wit someone that is totally sweet, wonderful and worth the while...

OP a worthy criteria is a subjective answer. It depends on the person.. Sometimes we fall in love with people because they treat us like we have wanted to be treated, but at the same time there are things we are missing out on, like them really enjoying the same hobbies we do..

Does that mean we should kick that person to the curb because they aren't perfect, and fit every criteria of what we think love should be??? Personally I don't think so, because that it seems like we'd never match up with anyone in this day and age of massive hobbies and interests..

What, in your opinion, are worthy criteria to be in love with someone?


Whatever criteria you pick, I'm sure it could apply to many besides the object of your desire.

When I read your post, the revised question that popped into my mind was "What are criteria I could use to justify to others (or myself) that my feelings about someone are appropriate?"

Is a "good" reason to be in love really any better than a "bad" reason? I agree with others it's not really something you have a lot of control over. People are complex, and at least for me, sometimes there are reasons I can't comprehend as to why I like someone.

That being said, my experience tells me life is much easier when my heart and my head agree, but it's not always a choice I have.

Now if you change the question to long term compatability traits, maybe that's more along the answers you were looking for.
