If you are ready to meet your life partner there are some important attributes that you should be looking for. Be careful not to be overly picky or overly judgmental as this can sabotage your happiness if this is a continued practice. Having some respectful boundaries is a good thing and necessary but stay open to giving people a chance.
Your partner needs to be made aware of why you have made this life-altering decision. You gave your heart to each other and professed your love to be in this committed relationship. No one should be left hanging trying to piece the breakup puzzle together. You owe it to your partner to be honest and upfront about why you no longer feel a connection with them.
You have the right to know where you stand after being in a committed partnership for over 1 year together. In fact, you should know by now!
