A sense of humor, intelligence, rock-hard abs — we all have our requirements when it comes to what we look for in significant other. But as actress Jennie Garth proves, it can take heartbreak in order to realize what traits are most important in a partner.

In the January issue of Health, the actress admits that after her March split with husband Peter Facinelli, her outlook on relationships has changed:

“I’m learning to date again,” said the 40-year-old mother and recent divorcée, “[and] looks aren’t important to me anymore. … I like positive energy.”

Although Garth and her Twilight husband went separate ways after 11 years of marriage, we applaud Jennie for her fresh new take on love. The optimistic mom of three reminds us that it’s important to search for the positive, both in your relationship and in your partner.
