You feel super comfortable around her.


Ultimately, you know that confidence and inner worth comes from within. Still, when you’re with the right partner, she’ll make you feel even more comfortable in your own skin, not less. In short, a good partner will recognize your worth and respect you, said Alicia H. Clark, a psychologist based in Washington, D.C.


“Through their love and respect, these partners inspire you to be the best you you can be,” she explained. “They make you feel comfortable because rather than focusing on aspects of your personality they want to change, they focus on what they love about you.”


He makes room for you in his life.


You should never feel like an encumbrance in your partner’s life. They right guy or gal welcomes you into their world, making you feel at home in their home, with their family and friends, and when it’s just the two of you hanging out.


“Partners worth your time share themselves with you and relish you making room for them in your own life,” Clark said. “Whether it’s clearing out space in their closet for some of your clothes, making time on their calendar for you or trusting you with their feelings, worthy partners demonstrate a capacity to share themselves and their life with you.”


He considers your needs.


The best partners will consider your feelings and opinions whenever making a big life decision, Clark said.


“Even the healthiest relationships are rife with opportunities for compromise, whether it has to do with divergent work schedules or out-of-sync feelings on something,” she said. “They understand the necessity of give and take and as a result, you feel confident that your needs are as important as theirs. Feeling valued and considered is a key element in inspiring cooperation and compromise as a couple.”
