Before marrying rocker Chris Martin and becoming a family woman, Gwyneth Paltrow was a serial dater.  In the 90’s, she was known for her high-profile relationships with men like Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck.  Paltrow now confesses that now she feels a little weird about her famous ex-boyfriends, according to Us Weekly.  “It was strange to be part of a public couple,” she says in a new E! special, Gwyneth Paltrow.

What are personality traits to avoid in a potential partner?

Cupid’s Advice:

To avoid a “strange” relationship, there are some things you should look out for in a potential partner.  Cupid has some tips:

1. Bad boy: He may be hard to resist, but dating a bad boy is, ironically, a bad idea.  Oftentimes he’s afraid to commit and will be unfaithful.

2. Power-hungry: It’s good to be ambitious and want to advance in your career.  But you should avoid a guy who is obsessed with money and power because he won’t give you the attention you deserve.

3. Too vain: Who doesn’t love a pretty boy?  But if he spends more time staring in the mirror than looking at you, he’s way too into himself.
