WHY YOU KEEP ENDING UP WITH AN INCOMPATIBLE PARTNER
On my Instagram stories the last few days, we have been discussing what we feel a potential partner needs to know about us upfront. Hand-in-hand with that are deal breakers. Deal breakers are things YOU need to know about your potential partner upfront. Your deal breakers are important to know as you are dating and seeking a long term partner. For example, maybe you absolutely don’t want kids. If you find out a potential partner has kids or wants kids, that may be a deal breaker for you. A good practice I like to do is keep a list in my phone of my deal breakers or questions to make sure to ask that would prompt the other person to disclose whether they fall in the “ABSOLUTELY NOT” category. That way, if I’m going on dates with someone, I know exactly what to ask to avoid waisting anybody’s time. It doesn’t have to be a long list, a lot of discrepancies can be worked out. But keeping a list of 3-5 “ABSOLUTELY NOT’S” helps you make sure you’re picking a more compatible partner and nurturing healthy connections. That being said, not everybody’s deal breakers are alike. So, what are your deal breakers?
