At the outset of any partnership, the most frequently asked questions include, ‘will this person think I am right for them?' or ‘what if we discover we aren't really all that compatible.' One of the best tips about finding an answer to these and the many other questions is to remember you are not alone. So many people have been in your position, heading into unfamiliar territory, perhaps lacking in self-belief. You're only human, and it's only a minority of single women or men who have the confidence to breeze into a new relationship as if they haven't a care in the world. It's far more natural to ask a variety of questions. That's how you really find out more about a potential partner, and it's an ongoing quest. As you discover the interests and passions you share, this is how a real sense of chemistry can develop between you.
Whether your interest lies in seeking single men and women or finding gay or bisexual partners, you may well worry about a new connection not lasting. ‘Why am I single when a lot of my friends have settled down?' The thing is, life isn't a race. If you haven't met the right person yet, there is no reason at all why you won't. Rather than rushing into a relationship with preconceptions, especially blaming yourself if it doesn't last, try relaxing and just enjoying the journey.
You might also ask, ‘What if my latest partner and I have nothing in common?' Remember people are always evolving. As you grow into a relationship together, you'll adapt to each other's preferences. This goes a lot further than finding common ground with hobbies. You'll also find yourself asking about longer-term aspirations, such as where you see yourself living in the future, or having families.
