3 Questions To Ask Before Dating An Ex-Con [EXPERT]
Could you fall in love with a criminal?

However, without shifting internally, you have a sleeper cell ready to engage old behaviors once the right trigger arises. So how do you determine if the guy with a criminal record is the guy for you? Consider the questions that count the most so you can determine if the only thing he wants to steal is your heart.

1. What type of crime did he commit? The type of crime gives you a lot more information about the nature of that person. White collar crime should be considered just as seriously as violent crimes since they're often committed against a person's own friends and business associates. Free Contraception: 1 Step Forward Or Fluke In Freedom?

How old was he when he committed the crime? We know that a young person's brain is still forming, leaving them extremely vulnerable to outside influences and environment. This is no excuse, still, Apollo illustrates how guidance, education and personal will can recycle a tumultuous start into a successful future.

2. What drove him to commit the crime, and how has his perspective changed? Whether we're insistent on a designer wedding dress or embezzling money, there's always something driving us to do what we're doing the way we're doing it. The bottom line is whether the person you're interested in has detected the glitches in his modus operandi and rewritten his rules of engagement4 Steps To Finding Love [VIDEO]

3. Is he willing to discuss what he did and what he's learned? The man who's recycled his past by integrating the experience will expect you to ask. He'll also be happy to share knowing that it will give you a greater sense of who he is. Dating can be daunting these days. Nonetheless, there are simple, specific things you can do to set yourself up for success no matter who you're dating.

Put your technological devices down for at least 15-30 minutes daily so you can re-engage your sense of awareness. Get clear about who you are and what you wish to experience with a partner in a relationship so you don't miss it if it comes in a package you're not expecting. Be accountable to you by staying true to what you desire and making choices that are aligned with creating the experience you want.

Lastly, be curious about people instead of using your skills of observation to analyze them. Like I say in Thank Goodness You Dumped His Ass, when you're curious, you listen more intently, thus gaining more awareness. When you observe and analyze, you miss critical information that results in miss-calculations. 3 Mistakes You May Make When Looking For Love

Often we're less affected by what happens to us and more affected by what we decide about us and our lives after it happens. Similarly, the bad choices we make don't define us as much as our understanding of why we made them, combined with the shifts in perception we make regarding how we should operate today.

Legal indiscretions can be the buffing cloth that empowers a man's diamond interior to emerge from his charcoal encasement, so don't rule him out. Cheers to your best relationship ever. The Bachelor Recycled: 3 Q's To Prevent Mis-Calculations
