5 Things to Know About Finding A Lifetime Partner

Whatever stage in life you are, you still have plenty of time to find a lifetime partner! Enjoy the game to find your perfect match – because a bad date makes a much better story than an okay one.

Here are 5 things to know about finding a lifetime partner.

1. Take it Slow
You have to try and take it slow, as you don’t know this person yet and you have to give them time for their true nature to show. At the start we always put on our best behavior but enjoy the romantic stage without planning your 20 grandchildren – you want to make sure they are the real-deal in reality and not just in your fantasy.

2. Don’t Be Restrained by a Type
Tall, dark, handsome and loaded is a type! Don’t cut off the rest of the potential pool of people because they don’t drive a car or aren’t tall enough. I always find a match is more on a connection level. You can feel it with the most random people who you wouldn’t put in your ‘type’ box but there is definite sexual tension there – try dating them and see how it turns out.

3. Listen to Their Body Language
Standing you up, ignoring you, overly flirting with others, always talking about their exes… Any kind of behaviour that makes you feel disrespected, undervalued or ignored is NOT okay and it won’t get better. if they do it repeatedly and just apologise then excuse them from your amazing life. Plenty of people out there who are worthy of your time – spend it on them.

4. Be Yourself
If you can’t be yourself without being judged then something is wrong. A good relationship should make you just want to be yourself and not be constantly wearing a mask which isn’t sustainable.  You should be loved for you – simple!

5. Relax
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself. If you are feeling desperate, chances are you will act it and ignore some warning signs if your choice is less than perfect. Focus on attracting the right kind of people and take time for yourself, so you can love yourself, because you can’t expect someone else to hold you all together if you can’t.
