Whether you have gone through a heart crushing breakup and given up on love or you are a hopeless romantic person wandering aimlessly in the quest for true love, here are some pointers that indicate whether the one you wish for or the one you are dating is appropriate marriage material or not. After all, love is not a myth and perfect life partners are not mythical creatures that once roamed the earth but are now extinct.
Get in Touch With Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Before others get to know you better, you must know yourself first. Discover your bulletproof strengths and your deepest darkest insecurities and weaknesses for you can always play up to your strengths and downplay your weaknesses. Once you are confident, ask yourself if you ever see yourself tying the knot in the future or imagine yourself living a happily single life in the years to come.
It is important to know whether you ever want to go down the ‘getting married’ road before you hurt someone else’s feelings and wallow in guilt.
Go For Someone with Similar Interests
If you are thinking that like poles repel and opposite poles attract, save that logic for magnets only. When it comes to finding an individual you would want to be tied in the bond of shaadi with, it is best to go for someone who shares at least two to three common interests with you. That way, you can spend enough time with that person without getting bored or constantly fighting over trivial matters.
Going for All Brawn and No Brains or All Brains and No Brawn
When you are thinking of being with a person for the long haul, one of the most important factors to take into consideration is his or her intelligence. An intelligent person has a rational perspective on things and can distinguish between right and wrong. However, both of you must see eye to eye in this matter to live a happy life together. On the other hand, it is quite rightly said that beauty is only skin deep because ten years down the line, you would want a loving and caring husband or wife rather than one with just enviable looks.
Respecting Each Other’s Feelings
Never settle for someone who does not respect you and your feelings, ever. No matter how much you compromise in order to make the marriage work, it will fall apart inevitably and it will be no one’s fault. Also, look for someone who encourages you to pursue your future goals and targets in life.
The Comfort Level Goes a Long Way
Most importantly, be with someone you feel comfortable spending time with. Someone you can connect with on a whole new level and tell them all about your bitter past experiences, your future dreams, hopes and aspirations without feeling that you are putting yourself out there or making yourself vulnerable. The higher the level of comfort the two of you share, the higher the chances of a successful marriage of a lifetime.
Spending Time with Your Beloved
Another important quality your potential life partner should possess is having his priorities set straight. A person who puts you on top of his list of priorities and actually makes the effort to see you and spend time with you is someone you never want to lose. Such people are rarely ever found.
Spending the rest of your life with someone is no smooth sailing unless you make compromises, be careful of not hurting your loved one’s feelings and make him your number one priority. These few tips will definitely help you finding Mr. or Mrs. Right.
