Choosing your romantic match
Finding true love is more than just meeting someone caring and charismatic with a great smile. The ultimate sign of a match made in heaven is falling for someone who makes you a better person. Here are three traits to consider when looking for your best romantic match.
Someone who will challenge you
Taking the easy way out is, well, easy. But where's the fun in that? Complacency happens to the best of us, but it won't help you achieve your goals. What you really need is a partner who keeps you on your toes -- who challenges the way you see the world. Being with someone who just goes along with everything you say and do without ever questioning you may seem ideal at first, but having a partner who isn't afraid to challenge your worldview is important. It will keep things interesting -- and more importantly, will help you grow as a person.
Someone who can expand your world
No matter how smart, worldly or well read you are, there are always new things to learn, see, experience and do. Being with someone who can introduce you to new foods, books, places, music and ideas is one of the best bonuses to falling in love. Life gets better and more fulfilling with every discovery you share with your significant other. You may not like everything he likes or want to go everywhere he's been, but the greater your experiences, the more enjoyable your life (and relationship) will be.
Someone who doesn't let you give up
We all get off track or feel lost from time to time. Someone who offers continuous, unconditional support and who won't let you give up in the face of setbacks can make a huge difference in your success and help ensure you're always moving forward in a positive direction.
