Strengthen the Bond
If you're searching for a relationship or you're presently unhappy with the one you're currently in, the very first thing you have to realize is who you are as an individual and what you want in a partner. This isn't a simple task in the least and is a lot more complicated than it appears. What it involves is stepping out of your comfort zone.
On the surface, expressing that you need to find the correct individual to be in a relationship with seems too obvious, but there is a richer meaning here. The right person has a different meaning for everyone. Most people mean an individual that they enjoy spending time with, someone who they have fun with and are attractive to them. All of those factors are crucial to having a good relationship, but they often do not last. In order for a relationship to work over time, you have to be with an individual who's aligned with your intentions and is supportive of your goals and ambitions.
You have to find the individual who has the same core values and morals as you. For instance, somebody who's expecting to start a family and whose values and morals are more focused around the home wouldn't be well-matched with an individual whose core values and morals in life are thrill-seeking and adventurous.
They may get along well enough, have lots of fun and have awesome sex in the beginning, but over time, the mismatch in core values and morals will start to take its toll and start to drive both individuals apart. Values and morals refer to much more than life-style; it goes deeper to your core being. Your core being, meaning who you are and what is your higher purpose is.
