Believe it or not, you can tell a lot about a potential spouse or significant other by how he or she plays a game and how he or she behaves in college.
One of my previous blog postings talked about my beloved Mexican Train Dominoes and I got some excellent feedback on that subject (about the dominoes, not the choice of a spouse).
There’s an old saying that goes, “Win without boasting. Lose without excuse.” That’s a good strategy for college students, as well as picking a spouse.
How does someone behave when he or she gets a bad grade? Does the person verbally attack the professor or blame the instructions or the circumstances or the time of day or the weather?
If the person blames everyone but him or herself, then the person will eventually put responsibility for everything bad that happens on you. Keep this in mind as you make decisions about your future with the individual. Do you really want to accept that kind of burden?
So, enjoy playing games, but keep a close eye on behavior. It really does make a difference.
