Chemistry is one thing but, at this point in my life, there has to be a deeper connection based on similar outlooks and ideals. If you're smart, funny, and kind, that's a great start. You should also be honest, a good communicator, and a great dad so you understand the commitment.
If you're super religious, voted for Trump, have ever used the word "snowflake" as an insult, or wouldn't classify yourself as someone who believes in equality...for everyone...we will definitely not get along. I'm not interested in philosophical arguments about what defines racism or why cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood is morally sound. Do us both a favor and move on to the next.
