We all know what happens when you head to the grocery store without a list. You mexican cupid mobile site end up impulsively grabbing items and leaving with a cart piled full of stuff you didn’t really need.
While killing time in the back of a biology class during nursing school, a then 19-year-old Elena Murzello used this “grocery list” theory to create a list of characteristics she was looking for in a potential partner. What Murzello didn’t realize at the time was that this was the first of many “love lists” she would write – eventually leading her to author The Love List: A Guide to Getting Who You Want.
“Without a list, you base your purchases on how hungry you are and end up grabbing random items you don’t need, like pretzel-covered peanut-butter snacks,” writes Murzello in the book. “The reevaluation begins when you stare at your half-full grocery cart as you wait in line and realize that you don’t really need half the stuff that you put in your cart. More often than not, you forget the one thing you went shopping for in the first place because it wasn’t so apparent when you were browsing the shelves.”
