“We can’t ask someone to be something we’re not,” she says. “If you value financial responsibility in someone, you have to show up like that.”  (So you don’t have to make a million dollars a year, but you do need to start paying your bills on time.) Yvonne Thomas, PhD, a Los Angeles-based psychologist who specializes in relationships, agrees. “Having similar values in yourself that you also want in a partner can help spark the interest [of] the kind of person you’d want to date,” she says.
