We come across people of all kinds in this world and the diversity is wonderful though. But when it comes to relationships, most of us often end-up being with the wrong people, be they friends or life-partner. All good people wish they knew the true colors of the person before they were disappointed. New year is also time to take stock of relationships and to decide which ones to keep or discard. Here’s a checklist to help you understand the differences between real and materialistic people so that you end up getting some real happiness from relationships.
