When it comes to a newly single Ashton Kutcher, what you see is what you get.  Though the reasons for Kutcher’s split from Demi Moore have yet to be seen, the Two and a Half Men star, 33, discussed what he wanted in a woman in an interview before his sex scandal.  He said that he “could never be with a woman who felt like she needed to change me.”  According to People, Kutcher may have cheated on his wife of six years, but this doesn’t mean he’s against the idea of compromise.  He believes in “working on the relationship” and that the goal of it all is “to be in a relationship.”

What do you do if your partner holds some qualities that you don’t like?

Cupid’s Advice:

Everyone has flaws, and you’re never going to find someone about whom you like absolutely everything.  Here are some tips:

1. Think about why you want them to change: If you don’t like something about your partner, make sure that the qualities you dislike aren’t a major problem.  If you’re an impatient person, for example, you may be less likely to accept a partner who is perpetually late.

2. Have patience: It’s important to note how necessary patience is in a relationship.  Nobody can change overnight, and it can be very difficult to break a habit.  Support your partner when they try to change something about themselves.

3. Compromise: Is there something about yourself that bothers your partner?  You can suggest that you and your partner both try to change some negative aspects of yourselves that may be affecting the relationship. If you change together, you’re more likely to grow together.
