During the first few dates, it can be a difficult to tell if your potential partner could be the one. After all, everyone has their best foot forward. However, there are moments when he/she will give little clues to his/her true characteristics. Being able to see and understand them quickly will help in deciding whether you want another date. Below are a few positive characteristics that you should keep in mind:
1. Generosity: A person can be generous with their spirit, their time and/or the wallet. The real important thing here is that a generous person freely gives to matters they care about, often forgives and seeks the best in others. When with such a person, your needs may be met before even asking. Generosity in a relationship is a winning deal.
2. Openness: The ability to be naturally open is when your potential mate is able to share genuine thoughts and feelings. Also, he/she is not afraid of whom they are or do not feel the need to hide when emotionally exposed. Being with an open person will allow you to exchange deeper, personal feelings early on with much ease; thus, creating a strong bond.
3. Humor: Potential partners that have a great sense of humor can see the fun in situations and laugh at themselves. In these moments, you two will find yourselves laughing often, relaxing and letting tension go. As a result, this can carry any relationship through the hard times and on to better days.
