Hugh Hefner, married 26 year-old playmate, Crystal Harris in December. In a recent interview with Esquire, Hefner discussed his past romances. He revealed that he slept with so many women in his past, he can barely count. According to UsMagazine.com, Hefner estimates the count is over a thousand women. “There were chunks of my life when I was married, and when I was married I never cheated. But I made up for it when I wasn’t married. You have to keep your hand in.” Hefner states that wife, Harris, is from “heaven” and doesn’t wish his life to be any different than it is now.
How do you know if your partner’s values match your own?
Knowing if your partner’s values match yours in a beginning of an relationship is challenging to do. You may think they have certain morals and ethics in which they believe in. However, the real truth could have been easily concealed, and you simply didn’t realize it. It is important for your partner’s values to match yours in a relationship. Cupid has some advice on how to determine if they are or not:
1. Maturity: How is your maturity level compared to your partners? Does your mate maintain bills, plans, and their selves? Are they able to follow through on promises, and keep secrets? Your partner should respect your boundaries, feelings, and time. You need someone who is capable of being an adult, and capable of taking care of you and their self. If you agree in these aspects of maturity, your partner should too.
2. Personal growth: Are you constantly looking to become a better person in your life? Does your partner sit at home, and does not look to make a better relationship with you? Make sure you and your mate are on the same page when it relates to personal growth. Does your partner have goals for self-improvement? This should be a trait you deeply consider to have in your beau. Make sure your partner is aware of emotional strengths and weaknesses also.
3. Integrity: To be in a relationship with another person, you must keep honesty between you and your mate. Is your partner honest with themselves? Do they realize when they’re wrong, and you’re right? Is your beau honest with you, and many others? You need a partner who keeps honesty close to their heart. Also, make sure your significant other is not playing games, or toying with your emotions. Nobody ever needs that.
