9 Traits Everyone Should Look for in a Partner

Introduction: 9 Traits everyone should look for in a partner

The person you choose to spend the rest of your life with should be someone that you can depend on.

A partner who is gentle

  • A gentle person is kind, considerate, and respectful. They are patient and compassionate. They don’t judge or harshly criticize others’ actions or words; they do not think of themselves more highly than others; they have an accepting attitude towards people who are different from them in some way (e.g., race, religion).
  • Gentle people don’t like conflict either because it makes them feel uncomfortable or stressed out—so if there’s ever a chance that this might happen with your partner, it’ll be good to know that he/she isn’t likely to go ballistic over any little thing without giving you a heads up first!
  • Gentle people also won’t overreact when things go wrong—they’ll wait until after everything has been sorted out before acting on their emotions and letting loose on someone else.”

A partner who accepts you for who you are

The first trait of a healthy relationship is acceptance. But what does that mean? It’s all about being able to be yourself around your partner, without fear of judgment or criticism.

Acceptance doesn’t mean agreeing with everything they say; it’s not about always having the same view on things as them, or even agreeing with each other 100% of the time! It means being able to accept each other as they are rather than wishing they were someone else entirely (or worse yet—someone more like themselves).

A healthy relationship will allow both parties room to grow and learn new things over time—it should never become stagnant because either party isn’t willing to try something new out because “that wouldn’t work” (or worse still: “I’m sorry but I just don’t think you’re capable”).

A partner who supports your dreams and aspirations

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Someone who doesn’t want your dreams for just as much as you do does not care for you. So, this is a must in a partner.

A partner who is kind and empathetic

Kindness is a virtue. Empathy is also an excellent quality to have.

Empathy can help you be a better friend, partner, and parent by making you more understanding of the people around you and their struggles. Being empathetic allows us to connect with others on an emotional level, which is crucial in relationships as well as work environments where employees often interact with each other on an interpersonal level.

A partner who makes you laugh and can bring a smile to the face of a cashier on the worst day of her life

The first trait to look for in a partner is someone who can make you laugh. You do not want to be with someone who makes you feel like there’s nothing funny about life, or that they’re never going to cheer you up. A partner needs to be able to lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face when everything else seems bleak.

A second trait is one that will help build intimacy: being able to make other people laugh and smile as well! If someone doesn’t have this ability, then maybe it’s best if he/she isn’t around much—they’ll just get on your nerves!

Thirdly, find out if this person has an upbeat personality—one that exudes positivity and energy throughout all interactions with others (including strangers). If so then maybe there isn’t anything wrong with them at all…

A partner who knows how to communicate honestly and authentically

Communication is essential to a healthy relationship. It’s not just about talking, though—it’s also about listening and being able to understand what your partner needs. When you have the ability to communicate honestly and authentically, you can build trust between the two of you which leads to intimacy and connection.

  • Being able to talk about your feelings
  • Listening without judgment or criticism

A partner with whom you can share your deepest fears, hopes, and dreams without judgment or criticism

The first trait you should look for in a partner is one who can share their deepest fears, hopes, and dreams with you. This means that they are able to do so without judgment or criticism. If your partner is able to be completely open about their emotions and feelings, then this will allow for a deeper connection between the two of you.

Don’t feel like it’s necessary for them not only to understand but also accept all aspects of who you are; instead focus on finding someone whose support can help them grow as well!

A partner with whom you can be yourself without pretense, shame, or fear.

Being able to be yourself around your partner is key to a fulfilling relationship. You should be able to trust your partner, accept them for who they are and not judge them. Your partner should also be able to accept you for who you are.


So, if you’re looking for someone who is gentle, accepting of your flaws, supportive and trustworthy then you should definitely consider dating a man. There are many men out there who would love to be part of your life and share these traits as well.
