    It's been said we must develop a healthy relationship with ourselves before we can have one with another.
    A gauge I often use to check this, whether single or in a relationship, is to ask; "where I'm at right now, would I date myself?"

    ( I'm having a great relationship with myself btw icon_biggrin.gif....however,sometimes I feel it's too good to let anyone else in....icon_confused.gif)

    Looks / sex aside icon_wink.gif,
    strictly based on your personality, character traits, how you care for yourself and relate to others....

    Would you date yourself?

    I came into this with a definite 'no' in mind but with those caveats I'd have to say a 'definite maybe'. I know I'm not relationship material at this time in my life but that doesn't mean I wouldn't date someone so long as they accepted me for who I am, where I am. I accept it in myself so I'd be fine with it. If that makes sense.

    I'd only date myself for the sex, I'd find someone else for some food and communication.

    Yes definitely. My best friend has basically the same personality as me.

    No. Dating someone just like myself would be boring. I enjoy the differences between me and other guys, even though it sometimes results in conflict. You have to take the good with the bad.

    I don't think so. I like funny people and I'm just not funny enough. Too serious and I think I'm kinda boring. icon_wink.gif

    Thanks for the responses so far.

    Personally, I consider myself to be a fairly balanced kinda guy. I'm active with many outdoor activities, enjoy my job, have fulfilling hobbies and do quite a bit of volunteer work in my community. I'm sorta funny, kinda smart, rather compassionate and have a comfortable amount of healthy friends in my life.

    I find though, when I'm single, I tend to over extend myself with outside interests and even when I'm approached by a potential date I usually disregard the opportunity, making an excuse that I'm just "too busy"...probably lost out on a few good guys....
    When I was much younger, I was the clingy co-dependent partner in the relationship, I think having been burned a number of times, I've developed too thick of a skin. In my most resent of long-term relationships, I was considered by my partners to be "distant" and "too independent" .... I guess I'm being overprotective of myself by not allowing me to even consider the opportunity of
    developing a relationship with anyone else... I'm not so sure I'd want to date myself....
    Phew!...Well that was revealing....

    Yeah, what could be better than having the person love the same EXACT things. I love science/biology/eating/jerking it/working out. I'd fall for myself

    I've always thought of dating someone who could balance me out. The sun and moon kinda deal.

    In past relationships different guys would bring out different aspects of myself (sometimes for the worst).

    Could I bring out my own best qualities? This is like figuring out if the ending of Inception was a dream. icon_confused.gif

    Knowing the things I know about myself... No.
    But if I didn't know... then I would but I am sure it wouldn't last.

    Intriguing question. I think I prefer being with someone that complements me rather than mirroring me. icon_wink.gif
