In my opinion, people put too much importance on things that shouldn't/ don't matter when it comes to loving someone.
These are the things I feel people should know or remember when looking for a partner to love.
Looks will fade with age
Yes, we all want to be physically attracted to our partner. But it shouldn't be based on just looks.
Be attracted to their beautiful mind, their beautiful heart, their beautiful soul.
Inner beauty will always surpass outer beauty, because someone can be beautiful on the outside, but ugly on the inside. Outer beauty "only " will not last and to me if you're ugly on the inside, the outer beauty means nothing, makes you less attractive.
Value who they are as a person not what they "have"
You should never love someone just for what they have or what they can give you. That's not "real" love.
Financial matters can be important in choosing someone you want to spend your life with. But, more in the way that you want someone that is willing to work as hard as you to provide for your life together and if you decide to have a family. Not just someone to live off, and expect them to totally support you. Unless that is something they "choose" or "want to do for you.
Financial situations can change at any given time in our lives. So it can't/ should never be just about that.
Values and character traits
The values and character of a person are important not only in defining who they are as a person, but whether they're good for "you". You should always remember though, that if you expect those qualities in a person, you should possess those qualities yourself.
How someone treats you is so important . It "shows" they love you .Anyone can say "the words"
But, love, real love is shown by actions.
Little acts of love mean more than any gifts you can buy/ receive, any money you bestow/ receive.
Call me corny, but I believe these are things that are most important if you"really" love someone. And you'll remember, miss the most/ be remembered, missed the most for when death does you part.
