You Guys Are Not Looking For the Same Thing in a Partner

What are his or her ideal attributes? Are they looking for maturity, openness, honesty, integrity, respect, success or empathy? This question is important, not only because it reveals what they desire in someone, but because this will often mirror their own qualities. If trust is important to them in a partner, most likely they will be a trustworthy partner. Many of these qualities won’t be apparent to us when we first meet someone, but asking this question will help you get a better understanding of what they are looking for and if you match up. If they are looking for something particular in a partner and what you’re saying or doing doesn’t align with this vision, the second date may not be in the cards.

When you get back into the dating game, it’s so important that you get to know what they’ve experienced, what’s important to them and how important it is to them. These six things will reveal layers of their truth and help you or the person you’re on a date with discover if this relationship is truly worth investing time in. There’s no need to waste your time if they are not in line with what you’re looking for or if they are emotionally unavailable.
