A woman has shared the three questions she says you should ask to find out if your partner is the right person for you.
You can watch the video below:
In the clip, Courtney Empey, 27, from Toronto, Canada, explained how she's currently going through a break up, and wasn’t sure whether she should get back with her ex when he wanted to give their relationship another go.
While visiting her doctor, she was given some advice by her nurse who told her to ask three key questions to help her make her decision.
Courtney said: “I told my nurse that my ex had come back to me, and I didn’t know what to do and she said I had to ask myself these questions.
“She told me to think: 'If this person was your child, would you be happy?'
“And also: 'If this person was dating your child, how you would feel?'
“And the last one was: 'If this person was going to be the father of your children, how would you feel?'
“It takes the emotion away from the decision and makes you actually look at whether the person fits your standards.
“You then have to be honest with yourself and come back to your feelings and work out if you really love this person and if they support you and make you a better version of yourself.”
Courtney said in that moment, she realised the qualities she wanted in a partner.
“I worked out I wanted someone polite and courageous as I would want that for my child,” she said.
“I decided that I did then want to give things a go with my ex, but we are taking it slow. Lots of people have then tried this and realised they don’t want to be with that person.
“I think it is important that once you have looked if they meet your standards that you bring your feelings back into it.
“They could perfectly meet your standards but if you don’t love them then it’s not the right guy for you.”
And it seems Courtney has helped others going through the same predicament, too, adding: “People have told me that it’s helped them break up with someone or work out that he is Mr Right.
“I think this is a great way to properly evaluate if you want to be with that person.”
