Are you and your partner right for each other? Let’s find out through 5 basic signs.
In any relationship, you are bound to wonder if you are with the right person. Sometimes, you just know that you are. At other times, you cannot pinpoint your areas of concern.
Stop wondering – read on for the 5 signs that you’ve got the right sexual partner:
1 They put your needs first. It takes time for a sexual relationship to settle into a routine. During this time, you will notice if your partner is receptive to your needs – or not. If they are selfish in bed, you might resent them over time. On the other hand, if they are mindful of what you like, what you don’t, and what you need to feel satisfied and loved, they’re a keeper!
2 They are willing to try new things. The first few days of your sex are exciting and explosive, since you’re still learning about each other’s bodies and rhythms. Over time, you settle into a routine that is comfortable and familiar to both. Broach the subject of trying a new move, or changing the location for sex. A committed partner will be willing to try new things, even if they are initially hesitant. If they are against a certain idea, find out why. Similarly, discuss why you are uncomfortable trying a certain move, and watch how they handle your concerns.
3 They are emphatic about sexual health. Sex is a fun game between two consenting individuals. But both of you should practice safe sex. You should be pleased if they insist on having sex with a condom on. Having sex with a condom on shows that they are committed to the relationship and wish to ensure safety for both of you. It’s an added bonus if they choose a condom that enhances pleasure for you both.
4 They do not force you into doing uncomfortable things. Many things that can make either of you uncomfortable during sex. From body image issues to a lack of lubrication, there are several turn-offs that you must take in your stride. But how you and your partner deal with these aspects is important. If you don’t like certain positions, or if you wish to have sex with a condom on, they must respect these wishes. Set boundaries if you think that they are prone to asking for uncomfortable acts.
5 It’s not just about sex for them. A sexual relationship is based on friendship and trust. Your connection is enhanced if you genuinely like each other. It’s a problem if your partner is interested only in sex and not in you. The biggest sign that they are interested in more than your body, is when they want to hang out with you, go shopping, take trips together and do the things that you like – with no demands for sex at the end of it.
