Here’s What Kind Of Girlfriend You Are Based On Your Enneagram Type

Type 1: The Reformer

You’re practical and efficient, and you strive to make your partner’s life better. You have a knack for seeing solutions to problems clearly, and you want nothing more than to help your significant other become the best version of themselves. You’re the type of girlfriend who may not wax poetic in your text message conversations, but the person you’re dating will know how much you care in the ways you do things for them and help them take care of their needs. You are driven and loyal, and you will always strive to what is right, regardless of the situation. You may at times be too hard on yourself (and others) when they don’t see things your way, but ultimately you’re the kind of reliable person people gravitate towards. The people you date know you as someone dependable and grounded, and they appreciate the truth and structure you bring to their lives.

Type 2: The Helper

You’re affirming and open-hearted in such a big way, and no one can deny it. You are the girlfriend who firmly believes in loving and expressing love in as many forms as you can. You see relationships as a strong bond that consistently make each other feel loved and valued. You indeed aren’t afraid to put others needs above your own and do what you can to make their lives easier. While this can make you a selfless partner at times, it can also cause you to forget about yourself and become dependent on others for validation. You’re affectionate with your words and your time, hoping that your partner never doubts for a second that they are loved and appreciated. Though you like to be appreciated for all that you do, you’ll never ask for it- you believe love is unconditional and should be given even when it isn’t always returned in the same way. Those who enter into relationships with you know they are cherished and loved in a profound, intimate way.

Type 3: The Achiever

You’re hard-working and dedicated, and you aren’t afraid to be seen. You’re outgoing and don’t mind drawing attention, and you’re the type of girlfriend who enjoys showing off your person to the rest of the world. You do have a bit of an independent streak in you, and you appreciate when your significant other respects that- but you do make time for them and ensure they’re a big part of your life, too. You do your best to be an impressive person, and you want the person you’re dating to be impressed with what you do and how you live. You have goals, and you will go out of your way to achieve them- and you apply those ideas to your relationships as well. You are always finding innovative ways to move forward, and you want to be recognized for what you accomplish, but you’re more than willing to do the same for the person you’re with.

Type 4: The Individualist

You’re sensitive and creative, and you want to be seen as different from the rest of the world around you. You have a strong desire to be authentic in all areas of your life- and relationships are no exception. In your opinion, if two people aren’t committed to understanding each other completely, then how can they have a good relationship? You’re the girlfriend who dives right into the person’s dreams, desires, and ambitions in life. You are incredibly self-aware about your strengths and weaknesses, and you aren’t afraid to communicate them to your partner if it means a greater understanding can take place. You are consistently encouraging, and you strive to create a safe place for your partner to express their thoughts and feelings. You have a way of adding excitement and different perspectives that people are drawn to. You go out of your way to make each day different and exciting, and you show your significant other how much you care through your straight-forward communication as well as your creative expressions. You aren’t afraid to express your emotions, but you refuse to do so in an ordinary way- and you certainly leave a memorable impression on anyone you date.

Type 5: The Investigator

You’re a thoughtful and thorough person to be with. You aren’t one to engage in relationships solely for the fun of it. You observe the world around you, and you search for the underlying meanings in everything- as well as wanting to understand how everything works. You are the type of girlfriend who enjoys understanding your person and what makes them tick. You listen to them intently, and you never make them feel as if you’re not paying attention- you care about every detail. You can be hesitant in expressing your emotions, but if they take the lead in doing so themselves, you’re more likely to respond in kind. You don’t like to make the first move- you prefer to wait until you know it’s 100% safe for you to step forward, but once you are sure, you’re all in.

Type 6: The Loyalist

You’re a concerned and caring individual. You don’t simply look at relationships as fun moments in time but as an opportunity to create a safe and secure environment between two loving people. You’re the type of girlfriend who goes above and beyond to keep the relationship thriving- you don’t give up on people easily. You’re trustworthy and compassionate, you do whatever you can to let your partner know just how much their presence means to you. Anyone who dates you never doubts if you have their back because you will defend those you love to the very end with no hesitation. You can spot potential problems ahead of time, and you work to fix them. You might come off as smothering to some, but it usually stems from a desire to determine the health of the relationship, and your partner never has to wonder how you feel about them.

Type 7: The Enthusiast

You’re an adventurous and spontaneous person to be involved with. You like to live life to the fullest, and you’re the type of girlfriend who desires to bring your partner along for the adventure. You’re witty and social, you love to explore whatever new opportunity presents itself. You bring a strong sense of optimism and excitement to people’s lives, and you like knowing you do it. You’re independent and forward-thinking and are always down to try a new or unconventional way of doing things- whether that be dates, styles of communication, or ways to express your affection. You don’t like to take life too seriously, and you try to get your partner to loosen up if you think they need it. Though you can sometimes try to avoid conflict or uncomfortable situations, you know how to lighten the mood and try to ease the tension when it’s called for. Your person never worries about growing bored when they’re with you because they know that your thirst for life will always keep you moving ahead. You want everything out of life, but you don’t have a problem with sharing it all with someone you love- as long as they can keep up.

Type 8: The Challenger

You’re a fierce and protective person. You are incredibly independent, and you give off the vibe that you don’t need anyone- which means when you do choose to date someone, they know it’s because you want them. You’re the type of girlfriend who challenges your partner to grow in themselves and alongside you. You don’t view relationships as successful unless you’re both learning and becoming the best versions of yourselves that you can be. You have a strong presence that people can’t ignore whenever you’re in a room, and it’s not uncommon for you to take charge in leadership roles due to your passion and strong will. You realize your impact on others, and you’re known to be someone to rely on when people want a strong shoulder to lean on or someone who will fight to protect those who genuinely need it. You do have a soft side but have trouble being vulnerable, though, with established trust between you and your partner, you aren’t as hesitant to be open with your emotions. Your significant other knows that while you may not be the most overly gushy or romantic person with your words, you still express your affection through practical and clear actions.

Type 9: The Peacemaker

You’re a compassionate and empathetic human being. You strive to keep things peaceful and harmonious in your life, and this includes in your relationships. You’re the type of girlfriend who loves to nurture and inspire your partner. You offer unwavering support and admiration for the person you’re dating, and though you don’t do it for appreciation, the people who date you never forget it. If your partner achieves a goal they’ve long been working towards, you’re the first to celebrate their accomplishment. If they end up failing or things don’t turn out the way they hope, your arms are open, ready to encourage them to get back up and try again. You’re considerate and aware of your significant other’s needs, and it’s not uncommon for you to take care of them before they even realize they need it. You are adaptable, and you want others to like you, but this can cause you to lose yourself in relationships if you’re too afraid to speak up about your own needs. You see relationships as an opportunity to provide stability and peace to the person your dating- you want them to feel safe and at home with you.
