Choosing A Mate

In the wilds, the process of choosing a mate is determined entirely by the physical properties; strength, courage and ability to hunt and provide for their family. These principles still apply today.  Since our minds are much more highly evolved than our animal brethren, many factors should be considered.

Factors That Influence the Selection Process

The practice of choosing a mate based on their ability to provide for a family is important. While the ability in the human world is not judged by hunting wild game, it is judged by one’s ability to meet their responsibilities. Your life vision will determine the level of  responsibility you’ll want in a mate.  If your goal is to retire at a young age you’ll want someone, who is willing to work toward this goal.

And if you want to start a family you will choose a mate who is willing to share of domestic responsibilities and possibly place career advancements on hold. If you are a free-spirit, you will want a partner who shares similar viewpoints. Whatever the case, you will need a mate willing to carry their portion of the load for a successful future together.

Compatible Personalities

One point to be considered is common interest. Sometimes opposites do attract, but as a general rule relationships have a better chance of survival if the involved parties have common key values and interests. This does not mean that you need to be identical images of one another. More important than trivialities is the need for a shared vision for the future. While attraction is fine at the beginning, the relationship is doomed to failure if, you’re unable to chart a common path.


Choosing a mate is not an endeavor that should be taken lightly. Take the time to carefully consider what you want in a mate before embarking on the journey. If you need some help, let’s get started, now!
