Hi, I'm Donna Barnes. I'm a life and dating coach, the owner of NY Dating Coach, here in New York City. In this clip, we'll talk about what to look for in a relationship partner, and that's exactly what you want: You want a true partner. So there's three elements that have to exist to make a relationship work, and the first is love and affection for each other. The second is communication. You really need to be able to express your feelings and control anger and really say, "This is what I'm feeling," and talk with "I" statements. But the third thing is commonality. You really need to be coming from the same page on things for a relationship to work, so you want to look for somebody who has the same values and ideas and goals that you have so that you're starting from a same common place to go forward. And then, of course, there's all sorts of red flags to look for. Make sure that they always treat you with respect, and that that goes mutually. You know, you need to respect each other. You need to have compassion for each other, and genuine love and affection for each other, and that'll be a good partner. This is Donna Barnes from New York City.
