In the pursuit of a co-founder it is better to be exclusive than inclusive.
Listen to your heart. If something seems off, step back, evaluate, and if necessary, continue to look.
I know you need the co-founder.
I know he (or she) seems ideal.
But it’s like that hot girl (or guy) you just fell in lust with that has agreed to go on a date with you.
Hot. Funny, in a sarcastic kind of way. Likes motorcycles and looks good in motorcycle leather.
But there’s the smoking. The chewing with the mouth open. And the fact he (or she) uses Internet Explorer as their browser.
It’s all those little nuances that add up. The ones that say “You’re going to be a good lay but I don’t see myself marrying you.”
In this case, don’t go ugly early just for the sake of sleeping with someone.
And yes, we’re still talking about co-founders. Because it is a marriage. And not all marriages work out.
And if you thought getting divorced was messy, try getting rid of a co-founder.
It is better to lose catching a unicorn than to wind up being married to an ogre.
