EP69 – What do you look for in a partner?
What do you look for in a partner? Are there certain characteristics or desire you wish your partner to have.
Perhaps you have certain things you will not accept or tolerate, maybe some game changers like meeting someone who does not want to have children.
So are setting standards a good thing and do we live up to them at all times.
There are moments where sometimes we become blinded by someones appearance that we fail to listen to our standards, these standards are in place to protect you but also build a barrier to what is acceptable behaviour.
Perhaps you may act out of character because of your desire to be with that person, from a male perspective this happens often when there is a sexual desire.
Looks plus more!!!
It’s important to know appearance is only one aspect of beauty, personality is also a factor. Often there are people who are aesthetically pleasing on the eye but there personality or mannerism just makes them ugly.
My partner must be!
It is dangerous at times to have a list of characteristic that you look for in a person, sometimes we evaluate people on their actions too fast and build a characteristic of them that may not necessarily be true.
Sometimes during dating we express the characteristics we desire in own partners, the issue is if the person is into you they try to become that person you desire rather than be truly authentic.
In these scenarios, time is really the only test to tell if that person fulfills your desires even the ones you are unaware of.
An alternative approach to avoid disappointment or setting unrealistic expectation is enter a date and try and seek out the vibe and energy. Give it time, see the person as they are and then pick out the characteristics they have naturally displayed to you.
