A good partner portraitThe other day I was discussing with a few friends about the characteristics of a lifetime partner.
One of them came up with this slogan
'They must be cool enough to have the guts to be heart driven'
No bad,we replied but what exactly do you mean by that ?
well he said,for me a lifetime partner must :
-be sporty, physically fit, with a passion for healthy lifestyle,
-have chosen a positive attitude( during the downs of life, on the ups everybody does )
-be driven by traditional values (not when is easy ,but when is hard )
-be psychologically balanced
-not be looking for financial rewards as part of the package (if they desire to be regarded as a partner and not as an employee)
-be humble but (extremely) confident ,
-be emotionally and socially intelligent (as defined by Goleman)
-be a skilful and tactful communicator most of the times (some flaws are allowed)
Besides they would be wanting to understand before asking to be understood,
they would know in depth their responsibilites, other than their rights,
they would know the power of laughter and would use it lavishly,
they would be dedicated to growth ,emotional and psychological,
more than status symbols and material stuff.
Ps.no cleaning or cooking is required if in possession of the above features.
Well,I said,I guess you are 'slightly' too demanding , my
dear,a partner of this kind exists only in fairy tales ....
