What I look for when dating in a new city
Dating in a new city can be both exciting and challenging. On the one hand, I can explore new places and meet new people. On the other hand, I may feel overwhelmed by unfamiliar surroundings and uncertain about what to look for in a potential partner.
As I am touring over the next few months and meeting new gents, I am also looking to meet those interested in longer-term dates or monthly arrangements. This week, I will be heading to Boston, MA, for the first time for a tour, I can’t wait to see you!
Here are some of the things that I look for when dating in a new city:
Common interests and values
One of the most important things I look for when dating is shared interests and values. While it's always great to try new things and explore new places, having a foundation of common ground is important. Whether it's a love of music, a shared passion for volunteering, or similar political beliefs, having shared interests and values can help build a strong connection and ensure a lasting relationship.
When dating in a new city, I also look for someone open-minded and willing to try new things. A sense of adventure and a willingness to explore the city and all it offers is essential for a successful relationship. Whether trying a new restaurant, exploring a new neighborhood, or taking a dance class together, having an open mind can lead to new experiences and deeper connections.
Independence and self-sufficiency
In a new city, looking for someone independent and self-sufficient is also essential. This means someone comfortable navigating the city on their own, has a strong sense of self, and can take care of themselves emotionally and financially. While supporting each other in a relationship is important, it's also important to maintain independence and autonomy.
Compatibility in lifestyle and goals
Another thing I look for when dating in a new city is compatibility in lifestyle and goals. This includes work-life balance, future aspirations, and overall lifestyle choices. Having similar goals and aspirations can help build a strong foundation for a relationship and ensure that both partners are moving in the same direction.
Finally, when dating in a new city, I look for someone with strong communication skills. This includes expressing their feelings and needs, listening actively, and communicating effectively in both good and bad times. Communication is key to a successful relationship, and communicating openly and honestly can help build trust and deepen the connection between partners.
In conclusion, dating in a new city can be both exciting and challenging, but by looking for shared interests and values, open-mindedness, independence, compatibility in lifestyle and goals, and strong communication skills, you can increase your chances of finding a lasting and fulfilling relationship
And on that note, Boston, here I come!
