3. They are willing to sit through uncomfortable spaces
Sitting through uncomfortable spaces is a part of every relationship. There isn’t anything worse than getting into conflict with your spouse and they disengage and or disappear. Someone who understands the importance of being present in happy times AND difficult times is someone worth the trouble.
4. They give apologies
When someone gives you a genuine apology it comes with steps to rectify the offense and no excuses as to why the offense occurred. Apologies are important because they tell you the offender cares enough about your feelings to want to learn from an unpleasant experience. If you are having to beg and state a case about why you need an apology after you’ve expressed why something bothered or offended you, you’ve already lost. Choose people who choose you over their pride.
