Search for a Life Partner!
DO YOU KNOW what you are looking for in a relationship partner? It may appear to be a simple question to answer: intelligence, friendliness, a sense of humour, attractiveness, dependability, etc. But we only sometimes desire what we claim we want.
You can’t predict a person's good and bad features when you first meet them; below is an adaption to something that I read and represents what I want in a relationship:
1. Emotional Development
Every individual has shortcomings and emotional baggage. I'm not seeking perfection. What I'm looking for is emotional maturity. Someone open to thinking and learning about themselves, reflecting on the past and changing in the present. And they aren't looking to me to fix or complete them.
Along with emotional maturity, my partner should be interested in modifying their self-limiting behaviours and willing to listen to what I have to say. Open and honest communication builds a firm basis for a workable connection that will grow through time by being resilient and listening to one another.
In my past, lying was necessary for survival; now, I want to be able to trust and be with someone honest about their emotions. Even if it means admitting that they're attracted to someone else, I don't want to be with someone who conceals portions of their personality. It will make me feel nervous and distrustful.
4. Sensitive and respectful
I want someone who supports me to be myself. This lights me up and makes me happy, and feeling loved becomes simple. When we appreciate each other's interests that we are passionate about, we can honestly share life while still pursuing our distinct interests.
I want to maintain an autonomous attraction to each other. I want to keep the romance and attraction alive by retaining our individuality:
- Enjoying independent hobbies and interests shared with my partner.
- Having outside friendships.
- Continuously trying new things.
I need empathy and communication; someone who listens and empathises with my problems would be a blessing. I want a partner who understands what I'm going through and allows vulnerability of myself. I desire compassion, the most essential of human characteristics.
7. Physically Adorable
Physical affection is an essential component in my life. It means I stay connected to making love last. I want my partner to take love and affection while also giving love and affection; this is critical. Our sexuality is a huge part of who we are, and keeping our feelings alive is essential.
A sense of humour is crucial because laughter is the best medicine. Someone who is content to hang around, have fun and laugh with me. Being easy-going and prepared to laugh at themselves is an excellent quality.
There are many qualities to search for in a partner; every one of us will have a distinct perspective on what is vital. Yet, choosing someone who aims to live by the above principles will ensure I get the best chance of success.
