    I don't know how well I will articulate this, but I'll give it a shot.

    Do you think that those who you personally find the most compatible, in terms of looks, traits personality etc aren't actually suitable. Do we tend to idolise those who deem to be attractive which makes them seem so 'perfect'?
    Side note, does anyone think that others make far better judgements on who you would suite?

    If I was closer to my family i'd let them decide since they would probably know me better than myself. Since i'm not that close I have to make my own decisions, and I find it's less important to have standards and more to be able to raise them in the relationship. I don't know if i'll ever find someone that has the full package before we meet but maybe we can work on things.

    I've never been in such a scenario where someone has made such a decision for me.

    I don't mean deciding for you, sorry for making it unclear.
    I merely meant advice, and how friends who know you well might know who your most suitable for.

    Aaah I guess, I've only ever been with one girl before but my friends didn't really have a say, like I find it very awkward to discuss certain things with friends. Only once, when I was like super drunk to the point where I threw up that night did I even mention I had a crush on this girl.

    Before my first girlfriend my friends actually thought I was gay because I never made any comment on such things.

    I suppose I'm quite similar, either I've never felt the need to discuss such matters or I somehow feel it will be used against me.

    Yeah I get what you mean, I always fear my friends would tell a girl I have a crush like to tease me, but I wouldn't want the fall out of it all, so I try to avoid it completely.
