Hey there! It's Emi, and today I want to talk about something that's been on my mind a lot lately: #RelationshipGoals. As a 20-year-old girl who is searching for love, it's only natural that I think about what I look for in a partner. So grab your favorite drink and get cozy because we're diving deep into the realm of relationships.

The Connection

First things first, let me tell you that finding someone with whom you have a genuine connection is crucial to me. Sure, physical attraction matters too (I mean, who doesn't appreciate eye candy?), but it goes way beyond just appearances. When I say connection, I'm talking about those moments when time seems to stand still as we share our deepest thoughts and dreams.

Shared Interests

Having shared interests is another important aspect of any relationship for me. Now don't get me wrong; differences can be exciting too! But having common hobbies or passions creates opportunities for us to bond over something we both truly enjoy. Whether it's exploring new cuisines together or binge-watching our favorite TV shows late at night while spooning ice cream straight from the tub (no judgment here!), these little adventures help build strong foundations.

Sense of Humor

Life has its ups and downs – no doubt about that – so having someone by my side with an amazing sense of humor makes all the difference in turning even the darkest days around. Laughing together not only adds joy but also strengthens our emotional connection like nothing else can.

Communication Skills

Effective communication plays an integral role in any successful relationship - trust me on this one! Being able to express ourselves openly without fear of judgment fosters understanding and empathy between partners. And let’s face it; misunderstandings are bound to happen sometimes! That's why being patient listeners who value each other’s perspectives becomes key in resolving conflicts smoothly.

Supportive Nature

I believe in the power of uplifting one another. A partner who supports my dreams and aspirations, offering a shoulder to lean on during challenging times, is someone truly special. Likewise, I strive to be that person for them too – ready with words of encouragement or a warm hug when they need it most.

Independence

While being supportive is important, it's equally vital for both partners in a relationship to maintain their independence. We all have our personal goals and ambitions outside of the relationship, right? So having someone who understands this and gives us the space we need allows us to grow individually while still building a strong connection as a couple.

Emotional Intelligence

Ah yes, emotional intelligence! It might not be something we often think about when envisioning our ideal partner - but trust me again; it matters more than you might realize! Someone who can recognize their own emotions as well as empathize with mine creates an atmosphere where vulnerability feels safe and understood.

Kindness & Compassion

Kindness costs nothing but can mean everything. In my search for love, I'm drawn towards individuals whose kindness radiates from within – those people who treat others with respect and compassion no matter the situation. After all, isn't kindness what makes this world go round?

Growth Mindset

Last but definitely not least on my list is finding a partner with a growth mindset. Life itself is an adventure filled with ups-and-downs aplenty! Having someone by your side who embraces challenges as opportunities for personal growth pushes both partners forward together on this rollercoaster ride called life.
