What To Look For In A Date To Create A Real And Lasting Dating Relationship?
Here are three rules to follow for a loving relationship
These three things are honesty, truthfulness, and caring
I believe that you know what is meant by honesty
When people are honest each other they value each other
They want to know each other’s needs, thoughts, and opinions
There may be disagreements, but the opposing opinion is respected and even valued, if only because the opinion is important to the other person
This can be hard to do at times. It is related to maturity. As we mature we are better able to hold respect for others
Think about honesty as you date different people. Be honest with your date
Does he show honesty toward you?
Is he interested in your opinions?
Does he ask what you would like to do or where you would like to go? These are signs of honesty and respect
Empathy is a wonderful trait to develop
Empathy is the ability to put oneself in the other person’s shoes and to understand their view and perception of a situation
This ability may not come naturaly
Fortunately, it is a skill that can be developed
Just start practicing by imagining that you are the other person in a conversation. Try to see their point of view
Try to think like they are thinking to better understand them
You can even practice this while watching television. Try to see each person’s viewpoint and why they are different
Does your date seem to show empathy?
Does he seem to listen to what you say?
Is he able to verbalize your ideas and see your point of view?
These things indicate empathy. If two people are able to provide empathy for each other, conflicts are more easily resolved
Add respect to the relationship and things are even better. The end result is a relationship that will uplift and compliment both persons
Genuineness relates to both respect and empathy
You have to be yourself in any relationship
Don’t try to put up a front and pretend to be someone else
Just be you, with plenty of empathy and respect
In fact, if you are not genuine it will eventually show and it is a turn-off for most people. When you show respect, it must be genuine
When you show empathy, it must be real
Genuineness may be a little shaky early on in the relationship because you will both be on your best behavior
With time the facade will drop, and hopefully, you can both just be yourselves
Honesty, empathy, and genuineness move toward making them a part of your relationships. Even better, make them a way of life
