Finding your soulmate is not an easy task.
Most people don’t do anything at all, hoping the right person will go out of their way to find them. Often, however, they end up getting desperate and decide to spend their life with someone just because there’s no one better around right now.
That’s not what you deserve, nor is it the best solution for the other person. What you need to do is get a clear picture of the right partner, define what you’re looking for and then start spending time with people who have these qualities.

Here’s what people who know what they want in life and are ready for a healthy relationship look for in each other.
If you want a healthy relationship, the first thing you should look for in a partner is that they are open, that they share what’s on their mind and one that is being direct and honest in their communication. You should feel that you can honestly share whatever is on your mind as well - be it pleasant or not.
If a relationships is based on lies, it can’t last.
2. Someone who admits to their mistakes.
I know many people who always want to be right, and claim so even though they aren’t. No one can avoid being wrong at times, and claiming to always be right means the person is self-centered and doesn’t care much about what you think.
Look for someone who’s okay with not being right. Look for somebody who admits to their mistakes and learns from them. In a relationship like that your opinion will not only be heard, but respected too.

It’s one thing to encourage your partner to grow spiritually, follow their dreams and achieve more, and completely another to want to change everything about them
In a healthy relationship, it’s crucial to accept your partner for who they are, and to be accepted in return.
If the person you choose to spend a significant part of your life with is alright with your past failures and current insecurities and doubts, but still appreciates you and loves you for who you are, you’ll have a stable and happy relationship.
4. Someone who respects your privacy.
Everyone wants some space and time for themselves.
It doesn't mean that you and your partner don't love each other if you're not together 24/7. Taking some solo time is perfectly normal and acceptable. And it's healthy.
If you start a relationship with someone who’s always asking you questions, checks your phone and computer all the time without your knowledge, calls you every 15 minutes when you’re not together and wants to be with you 24/7, you won’t be at peace and will likely start dreading their calls soon.
Fortunately, that’s something you can recognize in a partner long before you start going out together.
One of the most important things in a relationship is mutual support.
Imagine what your life will be like if you have someone that encourages you in your endeavors, believes in your abilities, is happy with your achievements and motivates you to reach your goals.
Possibilities are endless.
6. Willingness to work on what you have together.
A relationship doesn’t take care of itself. It’s you and your partner who have to cherish it.
- You both need to dedicate time and energy to it.
- You need to take action when something is not alright.
And that's not always pleasant.
That’s why you need to look out for those quality in your potential mate.
- Do they say ‘sorry’ when they do something wrong?
- Do they talk about the problems openly and are willing to sit down and discuss how things can be improved?
If so, then great!
