I would not want my partner to be an introvert. I think this is because I am a better listener. I need someone who can complement me. Is it true with you that the quality that you want in your partner is the complement of the qualities that you own?

as a partner is going to stay with us for ever so we definitely expect that she should behave properly with me and also should be care for me and also try to know the mood of mine when i come form my office to home she should feel my pain she should raed my face whether i am in trouble or i am happy and the main thing also she should undestand what i need on bed

You expect a lot from your partner. Won't you give her any breathing space? Life could be tough for her in such conditions.

I enjoy intelligent conversation, so I don't think I could be happy with someone on either end - either too smart or not smart enough. By "too smart" I mean the know-it-all type who is right no matter what and if you disagree then surely you must be wrong.... And obviously, "not smart enough" is someone who gets overwhelmed operating a ZipLoc bag.....

You are right. A balanced personality is what most people crave for. It would be the most preferable to find a person who could judicially decide when to speak and when to keep quiet. But doesn't adaptability fall into the list of endangered qualities, very close to being extinct?

sometimes yes. you look for something that would make you feel that your not the only one in the world with such qualities. making you feel less of an outcast. but sometimes you also look into that person something different from you even just a tiny spec of it. just to give things contrast and to make things more alive.

Well, I can say that one quality I would not like my partner to have is being lazy.When a man is lazy then come after this is being irresponsible also on his duties.A lazy man seems to have no ambition at all.It will just seems as if he is just going to the flow of life. He will just go wherever life take him to. I think that a man who is lazy will not have a good future. He will always depend on others for a living and will not find ways to earn on his own.We can also say that a lazy man will not be successful in life.He cannot feel true happiness or satisfaction in his individuality because he not strive hard to develop himself.He will just feel emptiness within. A man who is lazy seems to have no backbone at all and no initiative. As for me, I can say that some of the qualities my partner have now is same as some of my qualities. However, as I get to know him better,I can find also other quality of him that I do not have. Those are the qualities I want to have with myself.I can say that my boyfriend has a great personality than me. But most of the times, he keeps on telling me I have the better personality than him.

I do not know about that. I am married and I have found that when u look for a person with certain qualities you never really find true love. You never really find it because you are looking for something that is like looking for perfection. I have my ideas of what I like in a man and half of them my husband is not, but I love him so much and the qualities about him that did not match what I thought they should be for me has actually come to complement me. Because our differences are what makes us complete. And I love my husband unconditally he is my soul mayte and the love of my life. He may not be perfect, or have those qualities I thought he should have but he does have a quality that is better than anyone I could ewish for and that is his love.
