He doesnt sacrifice long term happiness for momentary entertainment. In other words, the man who succeeds at love has patience enough to wait for it even when hes really tired of waiting. Thats not to say he sits at home alone flipping through TV channels every night. Hes engaged with the world and has his eyes open for signs of romantic possibility. But he knows enough to see a partners potential as it really is, not simply as hed like it to be. He isnt afraid to move on when necessary.
