How to choose life partner? Every single who is ready to mingle may have this question in mind.
Though it is common to think that ideal partner should be the one who ticks all the boxes in our checklists but that may not be the right way to find a life partner. Life doesn’t happen the way we want anyway. Rather than thinking of what characteristics you should see in the potential life partners, you should think about what kind of life you wish to live with your life partner and is it possible to live that kind of life with this particular person?
In general, everyone wants to live a happy, peaceful and prosperous life. It is not necessary that even if someone fulfil you checklist may still give you a happy, peaceful and prosperous life. You should be flexible because you never know that he/she may have some qualities which may not be in your checklist but still something that will bring happiness in your life.
If I try to explain this in a different context, in business world, companies innovate and introduce a product which people didn’t even know they want because they’ve never had exposure to such a thing but when they have it (think of iPod and Apple products) then they love it!
Another important thing to note is that never hurry in making these decisions and also never delay too much. If you meet a potential life partner, take time to know that person and ask yourself would you be able to live a happy and peaceful life with this person?
See if both of you can make a good life together. Your partner may have something that you don’t have and vice versa, that’s how both fulfil each other and make a happy life. Financial aspect is important to consider too. If you are already doing well, then you may not be too focused on someone who is making a good living rather you may be looking for someone who has other qualities yet have good potential to earn enough in future. It depends on individual and your preference based on your current situation.
The moral of the story is that do not worry too much about your checklist of a life partner, and stay flexible. Every person has something unique to offer, you just have to stay open to see it. Rather than limiting your search for characteristics, ask a more generic question that whether you will be able to live a peaceful, happy and prosperous life with this person?
