5. They can handle you well.
Let’s admit it. None of us are perfect. We all have our bad days, our moments of weakness, and our intense mood swings. If the person you are investing in lacks the emotional maturity to handle you at your worst, then sure as hell, they do not deserve you at your best.
There will invariably be situations when you might feel insecure about yourself, act needy and demanding, act excessively jealous. But a partner who knows the crux of your personality will never judge you for what you are. Rather they will validate your emotions and try to compose you when you feel overwhelmed. If they do not display frustration, anger or disgust at your emotional upheavals, thank your lucky stars. You have found a keeper.
You definitely have your individualistic choices of attributes that you desire in your life partner, but these are a few criteria that will ensure you invest your emotions in the right place.
There’s no requirement to force yourself to be in a relationship with a person who doesn’t ensure your mental peace. There are plenty of possibly compatible people out there who are worthy enough of your affection. Invest where you do not have to end up regretting.
