Is it better to be picky when dating or open minded? Why?

Anonymous
Do you think its better to go into dating knowing what you want in a partner, what your deal breakers and compatibility points are?

Or do you think its better to be very open and willing to try dating anyone with whom you share chemistry and connection?

And explain why please :)

I tend to feel like being picky saves a lot of time and grief when issues come up later that just can't be reconciled. Seems smarter to know yourself and your values and preferences, as well as what you feel comfortable compromising on, and go into dating looking for someone who seems compatible overall. But a lot of people say open minded is better because you can date more people... Thoughts?
