Tips for finding love

So I stole this one from a good friend of mine. Grab a sheet of paper and divide it into two columns. On the left side, write all things you would like to find in a partner. On the right side write all the things that you would NOT like in a partner. Then on the back, write all the things you must do OR be, in order to attract the person that matches your list. Then reflect on this. Have you met that person before? Have you been the person you need to be in order to attract this person you described?
