I’m not a fan of advice, but I do think it’s important to have a reference point when you’re learning about what you want and what you don’t want in a long term partner.
1. Be aware of red flags. 2. Be aware of green flags.
3. Know your boundaries and practice asserting them regularly. Be mindful of the people you’re dating, too. How do they set boundaries? How do they respect their own and yours?
4. Keep up with the other aspects of your life that fulfill you. 5. Understand your own values.
6. Establish your dealbreakers.
7. Embrace uncertainty.
