We are all aware that relationships are managed differently at various stages of our lives. Once we reach our fifties, it is a proven fact that we view relationships with a new set of perspectives which are set according to our life experiences. Those who have been through divorce, especially after the age of fifty, are often lost when it comes to the etiquette of dating and finding a new mate. While it is important to know when a relationship is simply not worth the trouble, it is harder to discern when a relationship may bear good fruit if given the chance.
The following is a list of cautions and causes to assist you in determining whether a relationship is feasible. Please remember that all workable situations must be addressed early in the relationship!
Caution: A person who is concerned with appearances and impressing others.
Caution: A person who discloses too much information too soon.
Cause: Feeling of self-importance.
Caution: A person who values changeable things most, such as your looks or job.
Cause: Infatuation, not to be confused with true love.
Caution: A person who scolds you and treats you like a child.
Cause: Lack of respect for others.
Caution: A person who tells little white lies on a regular basis.
