It’s about what you do after you meet somebody. And it isn’t really about categorizing other people — it’s about giving insights into yourself, so you can see maybe where you’ve been going wrong.”

Let’s be honest, Evolve is ultimately a good way of getting your dating life figured out. Although you just have to deal with the idea of somebody else making you into a pros and cons list…
