Thanks for starting this topic, I agree as well that our relationships with our partner have a huge impact on our mental health. Hence, its definitely important to know ourselves and our preferences better before getting into one. Anyways, here’s my preference below:
Sense of Humor:
B. Lighthearted and goofy
I personally tend to take things (too) seriously, so its nice to have a partner who can take things lightly and balance me out!
B. Cozy indoor movie nights
Just cause I’m slowly evolving into a millennial who is ready for bed by 9pm.
Both A & B would be best, but being able to have A. Deep, meaningful conversations with my partner is very important to me. I’d like to understand what are things that are important to my partner, their values and principles
Definitely B. Incompatibility in values. My goal is to achieve self-sufficiency on my own thus its not that important for my partner to be ambitious. However, incompatibility in values would break a relationship since both parties can’t compromise. && personally I don’t think anyone should compromise their personal values just to be with someone.
Expression of Love:
B. Verbal affirmations and open communication
The most important trait that I look for in a partner is empathy! This would come a long way when things are hard and would determine if both parties can be kind to each other and have healthy, open communication.
Growth and Support:
A. Mutual encouragement for personal growth
More often than not, we’re each on our own separate paths for growth. It would be an ideal relationship if both parties can recognise that and give each other encouragement when things are hard
