4. Don't try to change yourself to "fit" into a relationship.
You will not be able to attract your ideal partner by knowing what men/women want in a relationship and trying to provide it. If you know what you want and what you can give in a relationship, you will connect with a partner who is a natural fit for you. Look deep within yourself to find out what you want in a relationship and what you can give.
5. Assess communication in your relationships.
There are three questions to ask yourself regarding communication in a relationship, whether you are just dating someone, are in a new relationship or in an established one.
1) Can you talk to your partner honestly and openly about your feelings, needs and wants and can he or she hear you and respond? 2) Can two of you make corrections in your relationship when necessary? 3) Do two of you have more communication and problem solving than drama?
If your answer to these three is "yes," two of you have necessary beginning of building a wonderful relationship.
If you are answer is no, you need to consider stepping up communication. A really good relationship, satisfying to both partners, always has excellent communication as one of its cornerstones.
