Finding your perfect partner - Part 2.

Emese Taylor, 02 June 2017

Looking back at your previous relationships can often be an invaluable way to plan for your next successful partnership. Whilst dwelling on past experiences can be unhealthy, it is very beneficial to reflect and evaluate the positive aspects of those people you have spent time with. What traits delighted you? Which infuriated you? We are all a sum of our experiences and our preferences and opinions are formed by these. Allow them to guide you towards an image of what it is you would like to find and keep these aspects in mind for your decision making. Remember also though to keep an open mind at all times.

If you are looking to build a sustainable relationship, a foundation to build a loving future upon, then it is vital that you and your partner-to-be are on the same page. Whilst it might be tempting to see which way the wind blows in your new relationship, a more efficient way to approach things is to have a set idea about your goals. Are you looking to get married in the near future? Are children a concern? It’s worth being honest about this at an early stage, to be sure that both yourself and your potential romantic interest shared the same goals for the future.

Another interesting exercise is to consider is to create an imaginary profile for your ideal partner. Not only is this a fun exercise but it can also prove invaluable when it comes to identifying good potential profiles. Make a list of the top three most important things you would like to find a new partner. Maybe someone who likes to travel or perhaps someone more comfortable enjoying a new cinema release. The more things you have in common, the easier it is to engage with that special someone. This is especially true for people are who a little shy, so bear it in mind.

Never the less, it can be a daunting task to write your own profile. Whilst the majority of today’s sites and apps will do their best to guide you through the process, a helping hand can always be of benefit so don’t be afraid to ask a friend to help, or simply look over your completed profile once complete to get a fresh perspective.

It’s understandable that you might feel a little uncomfortable asking a friend to get involved, but there are services available online that can help you put together an impressive profile and help you move towards the warmth and commitment you deserve.

Low Self Esteem or Falling Out of Love with Yourself.

It's often said that we can be our own worst enemies and this is never the more the case than when it comes to our mental health and well being.

Dating During the Christmas Period.

Christmas can be a stressful time for everyone. For those in an established relationship, the traumas of arranging celebrations and negotiating the often difficult path of family affairs can be a trial unto themselves and those who find themselves single can also find the festive period to be a difficult time for them.

Common Fears in a Relationship and how to Conquer them.

For many of us, a lasting relationship is a primary aspiration. For some, this will be due to their desire for companionship, for others a pursuit that results in children of their own. It is not uncommon for a relationship to be viewed as a culmination of everything one has worked towards; studying hard for a good education, striving for progression in the work place and building a comfortable home can all be seen as pieces to a larger puzzle that make up the foundations of a solid relationship.

Forgiving After a Betrayal.

To be cheated on by your partner, someone to whom you have given your trust and your love is a terrible betrayal. More than just a thoughtless act, it sets in motion a series of complex and increasingly toxic feelings, breaking down everything you have worked so hard to nurture and causing deep wounds that many simply can't recover from.
