Being in a relationship means there may be times when you argue or debate certain topics. Are you ready to open your mind to your partner’s point of view? Are you ready to see things from a different perspective? If you cannot accept any opinion other than your own, how can you find compromise with another person? All relationships require a healthy dose of give-and-take, and if you’re not ready to accommodate, adjust or allow, how can you expect anyone else to do that for you?
Keeping an open mind is also vital as you never know who may make a wonderful friend or spouse. For example, have you ever dismissed a person as a potential date because they don’t fit your ideal? That person could exude every other quality that you expect in a partner. Let go of inflexible demands and open your mind (and heart) to meeting someone new; you never know who will surprise you!
