Age Progression  Considerations Age Progression Considerations

For most of us, being attracted to someone's looks is an important component of why we select a person as a prospective date or a partner. However, in a culture obsessed with youthful appearance, some of  us make the mistake of being overly influenced by youthful appearance and fail to take into consideration more important factors that are responsible for making a relationship work. What really makes a relationship work well and last over time is Compatibility.  Compatibility is rather complex, but simply put - compatibility is based on how well we meet each other's needs - and that is what our Partner Compatibility Questionnaire and assessment process evaluates and measures. It is with this in mind that we ask you to give greater consideration to compatibility and less to looks when picking a date or a partner. Please refer to our Relationship Happiness Chart and Partner Compatibility Ratings when making a decision about selecting someone or responding to someone who has shown an interest in you. As we age, youthful looks fade and if you make choices based primarily on their looks, or if you happen to choose someone who is focused primarily on your looks without paying sufficient attention to compatibility issues, you may anticipate problems with this person in the future.

If you want to see an approximation of what you may look like in the future, we have set up an advancing age progression feature for you (not others) to see what you may look like in the future so that you can see how temporary your physical appearance is. If you are a person who places a lot of importance on youthful appearance and how you appear to others, you may want to take advantage of your current age and looks by not delaying an active partner search any longer. Don't sit back and wait for someone to come into your life - waiting and hoping and dreaming is non-assertive and not very productive - and then you realize you're a few years older and still without a meaningful relationship. Actively pursue a relationship now and have the courage to let someone know you are interested in them now to avoid wasting precious time.  Life is short and unpredictable and you're never going to be any younger than you are today. However, please be sure to conduct your partner search with compatibility considerations. If you have not yet completed your Partner Compatibility Questionnaire, please complete it now so that you will have the necessary tools to make wise choices.
