Naturally, becoming emotionally mature ourselves helps with this process and dramatically improves our chances of achieving a solid and rewarding relationship. Openness The ideal partner is open, undefended and willing to be vulnerable.No human being is perfect, so finding someone who is approachable and receptive to feedback can be a huge asset to a lasting union.When both partners are empathic, that is, capable of communicating with feeling and with respect for the other person’s wants, attitudes and values, each partner feels understood and validated.Developing our ability to be empathic helps us understand and attune to our partner. Affection The ideal partner is easily affectionate and responsive on many levels: physically, emotionally and verbally.The ideal partner strives to live a life of integrity so that there are no discrepancies between words and actions.This goes for all levels of communication, both verbal and nonverbal.
Having broken ties to old identities and patterns, this person is much more available to a romantic partner and the new family that they create together.
They feel congenial toward and supportive of each other’s overall goals in life.
They are sensitive to the other’s wants, desires and feelings, and place them on an equal basis with their own.
There may be no such thing as the perfect partner, but an ideal partner can be found in someone who has developed themselves in certain ways that go beyond the surface.
While we each seek out a specific set of qualities that is uniquely meaningful to us alone, there are certain psychological characteristics both you and your partner can aim for that make the flame not only stronger, more passionate and more fulfilling, but also far less likely to die out the moment the clock strikes midnight.
