The Best Thing About Dating You, Based On Your Enneagram Type

Type 1: You aren’t afraid to do what’s right.

You aren’t afraid to do the right thing, even if it’s not the most popular choice. The people you date admire you because you have a strong set of values and you do your best to advocate for what’s fair and correct. You’re decisive and straight-forward, and the people you’re with don’t wonder if you’re going to compromise your ethics, nor do they wonder where you stand on things- and it’s refreshing.

Type 2: You make them feel loved and valued.

You aren’t afraid to express how you feel about your love, and you go about it in a big way. While you may not always be throwing together grand gestures (though that isn’t entirely out of your wheelhouse), you are consistent and affirming to your partners, and they appreciate it. No one has to question if you’re into them- if you are, they know it.

Type 3: You encourage them to chase their dreams, no matter how big.

You know a thing or two about going after what you want- but this doesn’t translate to only yourself. When you date someone, you inspire and motivate them to chase their passions and make them a reality. You show them what it looks like to make those ideas something tangible- and you hope they support you in the same way.

Type 4: Whoever dates you understands themselves better by talking to you.

You may have a hard time thinking anyone can understand you, but you do bring out an interesting quality in others- you help them understand themselves better. You’re constantly on a quest for a greater self-awareness, and by doing so you have the people you date understand themselves better than they did before they met you. You bring out a different side to them, and they can’t help but love you for it.

Type 5: You show them new things they never imagined.

You are always striving to learn something new, and you thrive when you can share that knowledge with other people. Your significant others pick up on this quickly- and they find themselves subjected to new interests and ideas they likely wouldn’t have known before they met you. You keep their mind busy, and conversations with you are never a dull moment.

Type 6: You make them feel safe.

You get some flack for being overly-cautious, but that isn’t always a bad thing. You prioritize feeling safe and having things under control, and that translates into a strong sense of security for your partner. You are always thinking ahead and foreseeing possible outcomes- and you ensure that when you’re together your partner feels safe and secure- and they value that more than you know.

Type 7: You introduce them to new experiences.

You are someone full of light and energy, and you love nothing more than sharing that with your significant other. You tend to always be on the go and ready to try the next new thing- and you encourage the person you’re dating to join you. While having times of rest are important, anyone who dates you can’t deny that you’re fun to be around, and that they certainly will gain new experiences they hadn’t tried before.

Type 8: You challenge them to be better.

To you, the world as it is just isn’t as great as it good be. You see the good in it, but you also notice the injustice and when things aren’t fair, and you do your best to help change that. You don’t simply point fingers at the world, though- you start with yourself and you’re constantly pushing to be a better version of who you were yesterday. You do the same thing with the people you date- you challenge them to take a look at themselves and improve. Whether they admit it out loud or not, they admire you for it.

Type 9: You understand them in ways others haven’t.

When it comes to people, you strive to empathize with how they’re feeling and the things they are going through. You are one to offer a shoulder to lean on and an ear to listen, and you really take the time to pay attention to people. When it comes to the people you date, you aren’t any different- and you’re perhaps even more in tune with them because of how you feel. It’s nice to feel understood and listened to, and anyone you date adores you for this more than you may ever know.
