Cupid’s Advice:

For your own sanity of mind you should look for some characteristics above others. You need to evaluate the aspects you idealize in a partner and make those a priority. Though these are some essential examples of what you should focus on:

1. Similar values: It’s important to be aware of your partner’s priorities. Are they the type who can enjoy a monogamous relationship? Even if you’re just casually dating, you should make sure you’re both on the same page. At the very least, any relationship should have honesty and trust.

2. Upfront attitude: As you grow closer, it’s natural that you’ll learn more about your partner’s life. Eventually you should have a good idea of how your significant other spends their day. If you’re often surprised by your partner’s actions, then you should question how much you know. For your own dignity you shouldn’t invade your partner’s privacy, but if they should not be resistant to communicating, and dispelling your doubts.

3. Demonstrates respect: No matter how you’ve tailored your relationship dynamic, it should include respect. When you feel your significant other’s respect, trust comes more easily. Your partner should treat you well in public, and consider your feelings when acting.
