Balancing Life While Looking For Love
It's simply time for ME! You've made the decision that no matter what, it's high time you devoted some time to looking for love. Problem is, you don't know how to do it. The idea sounds great, but by the time you are through with work, household issues, seeing friends, doing basic personal maintenance and handling everyday crises, you fall into bedůsingle another week, month, year or even years. If this describes you, even a little, it's time to get serious and change your life. Here are 10 pointers to help you do it. If you even do half of them, you will make enough time to date, fall in love, and eventually, commit to a life partner. If you do all of them, you speed up the time it takes to do all that to warp speed!
Tip 1: Plan your whole week out ahead of time. Slot evenings, mornings, coffee breaks, etc., to get as much time on PerfectMatch.com and find your matches. Then reserve certain slots of time over the weekend or after work (whatever suits your lifestyle) to meet people for coffee. Guard these times as if they were client meetings, your workout, or your kid's school play. They cannot be sabotaged. If you feel you have only a little time, then schedule it. But don't let these slots disappear. If you don't meet anyone for coffee (or whatever) that week, use the time to look on PerfectMatch.com for other interesting partners. Don't let your work swamp your personal life!

What Is Compatibility?
A lot of Internet sites promote themselves by inundating the consumer with an overwhelming number of intake questions all designed to finding you their version of a "perfect match". Many of these sites will match you up in ways which are comfortable and familiar. For example, if members only want to be matched with people of a certain age, non-smokers, political philosophy, race, religion or even a similar hobby, it can easily be done.
This is simply one of many steps that begin the process of identifying and determining compatibility. Compatibility itself is more subtle than whether you and your partner have an ability to do a crossword puzzle or share an interest in downhill skiing.
Compatibility is about both differences and similarities, that when combined, they generate enough interest and comfort to create more than just a passing attraction to each other. Granted, being compatible means you have shared goals and life style habits, however, it also means you both continue to admire, respect and communicate well with one another.
Perhaps even more subtly, but essential, compatibility means you feel you are positive additions to each other's lives and are not just redundant reflections of each other.
