Both Men And Women Need To Cultivate These Personality Traits To Be A Good Partner
While there are so many different factors that go into cultivating a healthy union with a partner, some qualities are more important than others. In the beginning, physical attraction may be the hook, but it is consistent kindness, compassion and dependability that is going to determine if your partnership can go all the way.
Alessandra Conti & Cristina (Conti)) Pineda top certified personal matchmakers spoke to YourTango about the personality traits both men and women need to hone in on to be better partners.
What’s the point of having a sexy partner you can’t depend on for anything? Yea, sounds like after the sex is over that type of connection could get really frustrating. It’s important to be someone your significant other can count on, especially at inconvenient times. The experts advise everyone in a relationship to remember this: “Your word is your bond.”
“If you make plans, stick to them, regardless of what comes up in your life. Expect friends’ birthdays and work pressures to arise after you have set a date, tempting you to break your pledge,” the matchmakers explain.
No one wants to feel that they aren’t a priority in your life. Even something as small as checking in on a regular basis can make your partner feel affirmed and validated.
“Remember, you want [them] to feel secure and protected so make sure that you stay in touch. Make the time that you connect count. Instead of texting every minute of the day, a phone call at night, even for fifteen minutes, can serve you much better,” the experts advise.
Passion For Life
Nobody wants to babysit someone who has no zest or zeal for their own livelihood. If you make your relationship your everything, the excitement can fizzle out quick. While certain aspects of your lives will merge, you should both aim to have your own hobbies and joys.
