Does your partner have all the qualities you consider important in a mate? - I'm still looking for him.

At times, is your partner too overbearing? - If he was, he wouldn't be my partner any longer.

Is your partner living up to his/her potential? - If not, he should at least be striving to.

Do you feel that your partner is distant from you even when you are lying beside them in bed? - If he is, then we're going to have a big talk.
