Listing your ideal relationship dynamic is essential, after all if you don’t know what you’re looking for how will you know when you’ve found it? HINT: the best relationships have half of their lives spent together and half of their lives apart. Do you want an equal relationship? What does that look like for you? Does it mean you share financial responsibilities? Does it mean you talk through conflict diplomatically and work towards a compromise? Keep your ideal relationship dynamic with your ideal partners qualities or ‘shopping list’ to strengthen your resolve to not settle for anything less.
