Many women dream about their 'ideal' partner from the very beginning of their lives and ponder what qualities and habits he must possess.

Attraction and love aren't the only traits that sustain a relationship until the end. It is a combination of many habits and efforts that make a relationship successful.

This is probably one of the significant reasons so many women look for specific character traits in their partners to have a healthy and stable relationship.

After all, not all good men make great husbands or long-term partners. The best husbands know that it's the little things — the small habits that show love and devotion — that turn good men into excellent husbands.

No two individuals are alike. Similarly, your partner and two will have opposite opinions on various matters. In instances, you may try to influence your partner to swing your way, but if that doesn't happen, don't force your way.

8. They remain loyal

A good husband/partner is always loyal to the woman he loves, which shows how much he is scared of losing you. Compromising on loyalty is never an option in a relationship.

9. They trust their partner and show it

It is vital to understand that no human being is perfect, nor is any relationship.

We all will have our own set of flaws, but the most crucial part is that we all acknowledge those flaws and work on them to make the relationship better and perfect for both.

While certain habits like 'loyalty' can't be compromised, there are other habits like 'ritual' and 'communication' that the duo can develop and work for throughout their togetherness. You learn and teach some, so it's always a two-way procedure.

These habits are what every girl looks for irrespective of the 'type' of men they are interested in. Also, these are the minimum characteristics an individual should have.

If you're looking for a partner, ladies, do not compromise on these habits and qualities. Never settle for anything because you all deserve only the best.

For men, you should always be the best version of yourselves for the love of your life. For those already in a relationship, look out for yourselves and match what habits and qualities your partner consists of.

Make sure you are valued, loved and appreciated in your relationship; if not, this isn't the 'one' for you.
