The person you’re with should challenge you in a variety of ways – but what it really comes down to is that your partner should help you be a better version of yourself. The best version of yourself, if possible. When done in a positive way, pushing someone to be their best can make a world of rewarding difference.
1. Because dating someone that is exactly like you is boring and won’t help you change for the better. Someone out there that’s just like you would be your soulmate, right? Wrong. It guarantees you’ll stay stagnant, and in your comfort zone, not growing at all.
2. Because their strengths will offset your weaknesses – they’re accomplished where you struggle, which can help them act as a role model and inspiration.
