Fortunately or unfortunately,repparttar 101996 second half of this list is much more difficult to accomplish thanrepparttar 101997 first. Because of this challenge, you may be tempted to dismiss these steps as impossible, or even irrelevant. I urge you not to. In taking these steps isrepparttar 101998 answer torepparttar 101999 one question I get from every single person I interact with: "How do I attractrepparttar 102000 kind of partner I am looking for?"

To review, below arerepparttar 102001 first five steps. For details on these steps, please read last week's newsletter at http://www.whatittakes.com/Archive/Newsletter40to49/newsletter__46.shtml

1. Get complete with your past to break relationship patterns. 2. Ask for what you want in any relationship. 3. The more you want a relationship, have a laundry list, a timetable for when it should occur,repparttar 102002 less likely you are to have it. 4. Don't try to change yourself to "fit" into a relationship. 5. Assess communication in your relationships.

Here isrepparttar 102003 second half of my top ten most popular relationship recommendations:

6. One key to recognizing when you've made a poor choice in a partner is whenrepparttar 102004 other person seems to adore you fromrepparttar 102005 start.

If a new relationship revolves around you, you need to know this is more aboutrepparttar 102006 other person's need to be connected to "someone" than it is about connecting with you personally.

A relationship such as this will cool off within a short period of time. You will be left feelingrepparttar 102007 urge to chaserepparttar 102008 person to continue to getrepparttar 102009 same amount of attention.

Take it very slow inrepparttar 102010 beginning of any relationship, even if your new partner is pushing to speed it up. Only relationships built slowly withstandrepparttar 102011 test of time.

7. Choose how to create a relationship.

Relationship choices are based on our parents' or care-givers' relationships or lack thereof. If their relationship did not work well, we are stuck with their painful relationship patterns. The only way out is to clearly understand how their relationships influenced our relationship choices and behaviors. We need to consciously choose what works for us and what doesn't.

Look at your parents' or care-givers' relationships to see how they parallel your relationship history. Then make a conscious choice about how you want to create your relationships, which beliefs and behaviors you want to leave behind and which you want to keep.
