Discovering the Flaws

Relationships

A huge media event may occur when the perfect person has been found, but it does not seem to have happened yet. Couples often start out feeling the person they are dating is perfect, but time will often show them their significant other is not. When it comes to deciding whether or not the relationship should continue as a long term one, finding the flaws can make or break a couple. It is often the deciding factor when a person makes their choice.

Everyone wants to find that one person who is perfect for them, yet they must be realistic. Each person has their own strengths and weaknesses. These are not necessarily flaws, but they can be perceived as such when it is time to take that final step into a relationship. One of the better ways to view a partner in this context should be whether or not those flaws can be compensated for within the relationship.

Typical flaws are the small things that can become irritating over time. One person might sing loudly in the shower, or their partner could be too picky when it comes to dining out. These are not usually things that will cause a couple to sever their relationship. They are signs that each person is comfortable within the relationship, and their own natural habits and personalities are beginning to show up. The trick is to sort out whether they can be changed, mitigated, or if they can be endured over the years.

It does not take a lot of work to find some flaws, but others only show up over time. A person might appear to be highly responsible, but they could occasionally slip up and act childish. This can be a major flaw that will affect the relationship in a negative way, and it should be a major consideration when deciding if a partner is the right one for a lifetime of happiness.
