Keys to the perfect relationship

07 October 2014, 19:00 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are people who just constantly attract the right kind of people when it comes to relationships and you always wonder what it is about them that sets them apart. On the surface they do not look any different from you but underneath, there is that ‘something’ that just sets them apart. So what is it?

They have realistic expectations

It is good to expect the very best out of people but some of us are just unrealistic in our approach. You want the perfect person that you expect not to have any imperfections. No one is perfect, people just bring out the best or worst in each other. If you are constantly nagging someone instead of finding a balance, they will obviously be on bad behavior but if you empathize and create a balance, you bring out the best in them since they look for ways not to offend you as you are creating room for them.

They do not obsess

They know that the ball is in their court and they do not push too hard for it. They will show their interest, then the other party will recognize it, but they will not chase. See how they have created an air of mystery and remained laid back? You end up being the one doing the chasing. But if you are constantly on someone’s Facebook and Instagram, texting; then you look desperate; which is not going after what you want but borders on stalking.

They do not over-analyze

Most of us like over-thinking things. Did he not text because I am desperate? Did she not want a second date because it was boring? Who cares? That is the approach you should have in life, that way, you have other things to do. If it did not go well, then there is a next time. If it went well let it work itself out. Just take a step back and do not start coming up with ideas.

They are in a good place

Overall, with themselves, at work, socially… That good feeling that they have internalized within themselves makes everyone want to be with them and figure out what it is about and how they can have some of it.
