Rationale: Does s/he have grit (which is important for success)? Is s/he going to be good at repairing your bond after you’ve had an argument? Do you know when you’re feeling hurt, lonely, sad, ashamed/embarrassed etc?
"If they're not different, you have a guy that's not really planning."Once you're armed with this information, Steve says you can decide whether you want to attach yourself to his plan and take the relationship to the next level. "He's going to tell you all of this stuff."Once you have the answer to the fourth question, immediately ask the last one on Steve's list.

Without emotional self-awareness, people can’t easily communicate when they need caring, and that tends to cause problems in relationships.
