Getting a life partner becomes one of the difficult task to accomplish as one finds it hard to make it through relationships. After getting a life partner, the aftermath is a permanent thing. So there is much carefulness and steadiness in choosing a life partner. This post is going to inspire you to believe personally and professionally about love. Today's blog post topic? 8 things to consider in choosing a life partner.
Now, of course we all need a long-term romantic relationship that hopefully last forever. We all have our individual needs and wants when it comes to choosing a life partner, so consider my 8 list things of simple catalyst for your own creative thinking about this topic.
1. Choose someone for their invisible qualities.
Choose someone for the feelings they evoke in you. For the quality of their character and soul. Not for their looks, their professional accolades, their paychecks.
All of this will fade and change the ebb over the course of time. So focus on what's more critical: the quality and the content of their character, for the radiance of their soul, how they treat you, what you could notice and know about them if they were blind and could not see. Choose someone for their invisible qualities.
2. Choose someone who isnt afraid of the tough stuff of life.
Over the course of a life together, you will both inevitably age and possibly grow ill, and lose your loved ones, adjust your lifestyle, experience changes in your body and probably throwing up and heart sickening more than once.
A partner who is available to only see the happy, shiny stuff of life and who wants to quit the relationship when the tough time hit may not be long-term life partner material as life is chock-a-block full of the not-so-shiny stuff. Get a life partner who is always with you in the toughest time and the good times.
3. Find someone who is growth and learning-oriented.
The reality is this: long-term romantic relationship can be HARD. It can also be inspiring, beautiful and many other wonderful things. Getting two humans to stay together with all their quirks, preferences, and baggage day-in and day-out, year after year as you grow, evolve and possibly change as individuals takes work and takes a willingness to grow and learn. Choose a partner who is growth and learning-oriented and who's willing to do the hard work of growing individually and collectively with you again and again over the life cycle of your relationship.
4. Choose someone who is a good forgiver.
Relationship takes a lot of hardwork you will both inevitably mess up, hurt each other, make mistakes and otherwise generally behave like jerks to each other from time to time. So choose a partner who is a good forgiver. Someone who can accept your apology after you've messed up. Someone who can move past arguments you've had some time ago. Because messing up is inevitable in relationship. It's the repair, the willingness to forgive and come back together again, that really counts.
5. Choose someone who is a good friend.
If this person were not your lover, would you want them to be your friend?
Do you admire and respect how this person shows up in their other friendship? When the passion of fire ebbs down in the relationship, when you're sick, when you're recovering from your ailments or surgery, when you're stuck on a ridiculously long road trip together, can you appreciate the friendship you have with this person?
Sex and romance is a slice pie of the relationship. But friendship is even a bigger pie. Perhaps, pick a partner who makes a good friend.
5. Choose someone who makes you laugh.
Pick a partner who can help you laugh at yourself, at them, at the ridiculousness of life, who can crack you up even on your grumpiest morning. Humor makes a life and a partner who can make you laugh is a wonderful quality in a lifelong mate.
