Is he smart
While it is natural that some people are smarter than others, a new study from the Hanken School of Economics in Finland suggests that the smarter a person is, the less likely he is to be unfaithful.
According to the research, those who are smarter are more likely to marry and stay married.
2. Makes you laugh
Finding someone to laugh with is crucial. Even if everyone else rolls their eyes at his or her jokes, all that really matters is whether they make you laugh
And one study has shown that when you share the same sense of humor the relationship is more likely to succeed.
3. Actively supports your career
Research has found that husbands’ opinion is a deciding factor for two-thirds of women who decide to leave their jobs. This is often because women feel it is their duty to raise their children.
But when women described their husbands as supportive and participatory in child care, higher relationship satisfaction in general was also revealed.
But you look.

He cares about spending time with your friends
It is not uncommon that you end up giving up your social life to fit into your partner’s.
However, maintaining your friendships is crucial. So be sure to date someone who not only wants you to have time to see your friends, but also wants to get to know them and spend time with them.
5. Is emotionally intelligent
If stereotypes are to be believed, it is women who are always desperate to talk about feelings and never men.
True or false, it is important that each member of the relationship has some level of emotional intelligence and is willing to talk about (and solve) any problems.

6. Respects your opinions and listens to what you have to say
If the person we are with is convinced that he or she is always right and never takes our point of view into consideration, it is not a good sign.
Characterful, sure, but find someone who always listens to what you have to say.

7. Is willing to commit (really)
A University of Texas study found that the most successful relationships were not due to compatibility, but rather to whether the relationship worked.
So, if you or your partner are always looking for an excuse to argue rather than committing to making your relationship last, it may not bode well.
8. Celebrate your successes with you
Whether it’s a major promotion at work or learning enough German for a trip to Oktoberfest, it’s important to have a partner who celebrates your successes.
Not only will it make you feel good, but a study published in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology revealed that couples who celebrated others’ successes were more satisfied with their relationships than those who reacted negatively or were indifferent.
9. Shares your values
Research confirms this: having a similar outlook in life could be crucial to a successful relationship.
So, the more vosthree personalities are similar, the more likely you are to deal with problems in the same way.
