F alling in love and finding the one is something that we are made aware of from a very young age. After all, it is in every fairy tale that we’re read as children and in many movies that we watch as adults. Love, or being in love is something that everyone wants out of life. Regardless of your personal goals or career goals, you still want to be able to settle down with the love of your life one day. This means that you need to know what to look for when searching for the “one”. Although everyone has different tastes, there are a few basic things that your partner should possess.

When talking about things to look for when searching for one, we aren’t talking about physical characteristics. Physical characteristics are things such as height, eye color, race, and even gender. Instead, we are talking about things like personality traits and mannerisms. To be more specific we are talking about mannerisms. There are simple basic mannerisms that you should look out for in a potential partner. The first of which is respect. As simple as this may seem, respect is a major key when being in a relationship. You should see if your prospective partner not only has respect for you but in everyone they come into contact with.

If they don’t have respect for others, you can’t really expect them to have respect for you. Next, you want to make sure that you are with someone who is kind. Kindness is one of those things that can’t be taught or bought. You simply have it or you don’t. With that said, if your partner is kind to others, it will tell you how they will treat you. A mannerism that links to kindness would be selflessness. You really don’t want to be with someone who is selfish. Hence you should see that your partner is someone who is selfless.
