It’s a natural drive in human beings to look for a mate. However, so many of our attempts to find that life partner go wrong. Some people believe there is a such thing as a soul mate, some people don’t. Have you ever wondered what the best ways to find a woman (or man) that you’re compatible with might be? If so, here are some tips to help you find the perfect mate.
Compatibility Tip #1
Pay attention to her life goals. If you don’t want children, but she’s devoted to starting a family, there’s trouble on the horizon. Make sure that you have similar ideas about the best places to live, what kind of jobs you want, and the way you want to live your lives.
That way, you’ll avoid incompatibility in the long run. Many people just think about the immediate future, which is fine in a short term relationship. However, if you’re really looking for someone compatible for the long term, you’ll have to consider what it is she wants to do with her life.
Compatibility Tip #2
0ut of all the tips, this is the most obvious. You want to look for similar interests. If you’re interested in the same things, you can have better conversations and will have more fun spending time together.
One way to find women who have similar interests is to go looking in clubs and organizations devoted to things you like. If you like rock climbing, try groups for that sport, and find a new climbing partner.
Compatibility Tip #3
Likewise, find out what she wants in a partner. If she’s expecting to turn you into someone you aren’t, you’re both in for a rocky road ahead. If you’re the kind of guy that likes to take it easy, don’t get involved with a woman who’s expecting to live her life with a go-getter.
If you’re driven to succeed in business, you should avoid a woman who’d rather spend her time working on hobbies with you. There’s nothing worse than finding out that your partner expects you to be someone else.
Compatibility Tip #4
While there are many successful relationships involving people of different faiths, if religion is very important to you, you should be careful when getting involved with a woman of a different faith, or one who’s not as devout. Never let your hopes rest on changing your partner and convincing them to see the light. If you’re serious about your faith and want to find a partner who is just as devoted, try looking for her in religious groups or at services.
Many people meet their true love at a church or temple. Just because someone is not of your faith doesn’t mean that you won’t be compatible, but it does mean that you’ll have to put in a lot of effort.
Compatibility Tip #5
Make sure that you’re willing to work at a relationship and she is, too. The odds of finding the perfect match are pretty small, but you can continue to improve the level of compatibility in a relationship if you put some effort into it. Look for compatibility of communication.
People who like to talk things out can have big problems if they get into relationships with partners who prefer to be private and think it over. Styles of communication and a willingness to work things out are an important, and often overlooked, part of compatibility.
Compatibility Tip #6
Do you like lots of close involvement with family? If you want to go to family gatherings and have relatives over on holidays, avoid a woman who prefers to be more of a loner.
Conversely, if you feel like you can’t breathe at big family gatherings, don’t get too serious with a woman who likes to have dinner with the in-laws once a week. Most of your compatibility might be about just the two of you, but remember that your families can have a big influence on things. To avoid tense situations, try to make these considerations match.
Compatibility Tip #7
If you’re very attached to your cultural background, look for a woman who’s from a similar background. People who are experimental and interested in playing with culture will have fewer problems with others who are seeking the same thing. People who want to stick with doing things the way they were raised to might have trouble with someone who doesn’t do them in the same way.
Again, there are some successful relationships between people of very different backgrounds, but it takes a lot of effort to make them work. Your chances of finding someone who’s basically compatible with you from your own group are higher, unless you relish the exotic.
Compatibility Tip #8
This information can take a while to find out, but be careful about getting involved with someone who’s sexually incompatible with you. A woman who likes to spend a lot more or a lot less time in bed than you do can be very incompatible. Women who are looking for a forceful, dominating lover will be disappointed if you’re the type that likes to take it slow and gentle.
Often ignored, the physical side of a relationship is a big source of stress between some couples. Don’t assume that everything will work out just because you’re in love. People have very strong ideas about the right way and time to engage in physical intimacy. This is a big part of relationship compatibility, especially in the long term.
