Are you available?
Be sure you are available for a relationship if you are seeking one. If you are addicted to your work or consumed by other interests, you cannot do justice to a budding relationship. Get over your previous relationships, leave behind all emotional baggage and move on!
Do you believe in equality in a relationship?

Are you a fitness freak?
If your conversation on your first date is going to be all about calories and push-ups, you may be better off in a gym. There are other, more pleasant ways to convey matters of the heart. But being health conscious, without being paranoid about it, is definitely a catch. It means you take care of your well-being, are particular to avoid unhealthy habits and it shows in your great shape! You will make great company.
Do you value other people's opinions?
Even if you disagree with someone, do you respect his opinion? Do you give him a fair opportunity to put across his views? If you believe that nothing but what you say and do is the truth, you are not a good catch. And that is an unbeatable truth.
Do you plead for attention?
If you try desperate means to seek attention, you are not a good catch. Even if you like someone, do not cling to her. Let the attraction be mutual. Allow the affection to grow. Learn to give her some space. Do not be possessive or try to demand her attention.
Do you believe in love at first sight?
Do you dream about an instantaneous attraction, where you would be swept off your feet? Well, it may just turn out to be an infatuation that may fizzle out sooner than you realize. If you are a good catch, you will allow a relationship to evolve and mature over time.
Are you honest?
Honesty and trust are the pillars of any relationship. Being honest does not mean you go on and on about your obnoxious ex or your passionate one night stand years ago. Be frank about your ambitions, your desires or your expectations. You are a good catch if you are honest and can be trusted.
Do you stand by your values?
Compromise is the key to a successful relationship, but that does not mean to let go of your principles. You are a good catch if you stand by your values and learn to put your foot down against anything unethical. Being accepted and appreciated for who you are heralds the beginning of a mature relationship.
Are you independent?
Being in a relationship does not mean you need help and support from your partner in all that you do. Are you competent enough to tackle all your problems on your own? You are a good catch if you are self-reliant.
