Do not date someone who will add to your problems such as a) people with drug/alcohol dependencies, b) those with volatile ex spouses/friends or family, c) those who are unemployed, d) anyone who is still married or going through a divorce, or e) spouses with many children from previous marriages requiring compromises and schedule adjustments or (f) anyone with an obvious lack of judgment or commitment as evidenced by multiple marriages.
