How To Figure Out What You Want In A Relationship
Every relationship is unique because it is what we gain from our past experiences that we get to apply in the new ones.
However, it is good to define what you want from a relationship before starting or entering one because no amount of advice can make the difference if you don’t understand what you want in the relationship.
Here are a few ways to help you figure it out:
Learn to love and value yourself:
If you don’t start to see yourself as someone who is valuable and worth it then you will be insecure in any relationship you enter. Just remember that nobody except you can satisfy your inner peace.
Identify the characters you want in your partner:
You can write out a list of what you wouldn’t want in a potential partner.
Don’t compromise your personal values:
Know the kind of person you are. Don’t change who you are or what you believe in just because it is what your partner wants. If a behavior is not acceptable to you then don’t force yourself to adjust.
Write down any negative patterns you might have noticed from past relationships:
This will help you to work on whatever might sabotage your happiness.
- Write down what you expect from your partner and from yourself.
Be the person you want to date:
It is unreasonable to have demands for your ideal partner when your character is undesirable.
Other Points To Note:
- Take note of any issue from others’ relationships that you don’t want to happen in yours.
- Evaluate where you are in life and it will help you to know what you are looking for in a partner.
Test the waters by going on dates before you step into a relationship:
This helps you to know how well you connect with these individuals.
