Qualities Of A Caring Partner

Updated on May 9, 2011

Relationships, for both partners, should be about caring. Relationships in which one person exercises a high degree of control over the other can by no means be considered healthy. Healthy relationships involve respect, trust, and consideration for the other person.Understanding and appreciating what's happening for your loved one is key. For example, sometimes people have partners who aren’t as available to them as they need them to be because of work, hobbies, school, other family commitments, or other pursuits. If this happens, people may want to see if their partners care enough to change.

Women need to understand that men are sensitive creatures who want to protect and cherish their partners.At the same time, we want to know we are loved and that we are needed. For me, the love and support of a caring partner is really the best spur to success that you can really have, regardless of the details of one’s sex life. Some women just enjoy having their hand, or feet or head held, or simply knowing that a caring partneris touching them. If your loving and caring partner is not with you, you may feel lonely and helpless. All that matters is that you are being cared for as this is the key to making things work.

In view of what dating and relationship building has turned out to be today, I often wondered if the word 'care' still exists in the chambers of the dictionary. Women are often abused, ill-treated and subjected to all sorts of hurts and vulgar behavior. Many women have thus found succor in spirituality and uphold strong faith.

However, I believe there still abounds a few good men out there who genuinely care and would go to any length to prove this. So if you are shopping for a caring man, you may want to look at a few of the tips here.

Empathy: A caring significant other shows empathy, feels your pain as if it was his. He is compassionate, sees marriage as a goal but loving and caring as a value.

Shows Understanding: He should be able to decipher what makes the other person feels good and understands mood change. He is generally concerned about your well being and simply wants the best for you.He is all over you and pampers you like a baby.

Special: Your caring partner should be one that makes you feel special at all times and not one to bring you down at every opportunity. When a woman feels special, it makes her feel lucky and wanted and she becomes more loving. Attention and compliments do well even when she's not pregnant.Emphasizing your partner's good qualities is a special way to show appreciation of the love you share.

Mutual Respect: Caring partners must respect one another. Excessive jealousy and controlling are not signs of affection, on the contrary, they affect the relationship negatively. A caring partner would respect you anywhere and not disrespect you or exhibits your weakness at gatherings. If he respects you, he would not say stuffs that would make you want to punch him in the face. Healthy relationships involve mutual respect, trust, and consideration.

Happy Moments: How do you feel when your partner is away? Happy, sad, mixed feelings or you just can't wait to have him back. In a healthy and loving relationship, not having your love with you should give you a feeling of nostalgia. You look forward to having him back, he is the most important thing in your life and you can't wait to have him back. If you don't feel like this and you are like 'Thank God he's gone, let there be peace' then you are in the wrong boat.

Feelings: Caring partners must express feelings. If your partner looks good, com'on say it loud. Even when you are married to a duckling, boost her ego after all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Be mindful of the things you say when the mood is not right, no name callings. Don't hurt each others feelings. In order to make a relationship succeed both partners should stay emotionally connected and work towards building trust and love in the relationship.

There are so many creative ways to show you care about someone, whatever is working for you, stick to it and and make your partner happy.

Availability: Are you always there for your partner? Let your partner know that you are available to offer support and care. Nothing hurts so bad as knowing that when you need your partner most, he is not there. Love and support at critical moments are the soothing balm to healing processes.

Does your significant other care about you?
