It Had To Be You

What do you think makes a great relationship?

  • Trust
  • Passion
  • Fun
  • Communication
  • Love
  • Friendship
  • Gratitude
  • Curiosity
  • Respect
  • Vulnerability
  • Imagination
  • Loyalty
  • Creativity
  • Great sex
  • Connection
  • Togetherness
  • Self confidence

We all have our own ideas about what makes up a wonderful relationship.  So, how many of the above qualities do you agree with?  How many of these qualities do you possess yourself?

The best relationships all begin with what you bring to it – not what you expect from it or are just sitting back and waiting for.  If you feel you’re not receiving what you want from a relationship – it’s probably the very thing you’re not giving.

Here’s a fun exercise.  Write down your Ideal Partner List and be very specific in each of the following topics about what you want (not what you don’t want).  It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a partner or already in a relationship. Writing this down will make it clear what want in your closest relationship (here’s a hint – it’s all you!).

For each of the following items write 1-2 pages on what you want:

  1. Physical
  2. Emotional
  3. Sexual
  4. Career
  5. Hobbies
  6. Family
  7. Children
  8. Financial
  9. Spiritual
  10. Domestic

Let me know how you went with your list! 😉
