Is there such a thing as the perfect match? Charlie is convinced there isn’t, at least for him. A playboy who avoids love at all costs, he’s convinced that relationships are dead. His sister Sherry a therapist, does her best to get through to him to no avail. Charlie seems set in his ways until his best friends challenge him to date one woman for a month, certain he won’t be able to avoid falling for her. Believing he’s immune to love, Charlie accepts unaware he’s about to meet Eva. At first Charlie and Eva are on the same page, agreeing to a casual affair. However, Charlie soon begins to question his stance on love and whether he may actually want more than just a one night stand.
The Perfect Match hits theaters this Friday March 11th and stars Terrence Jenkins as Charlie and Cassie Ventura as Eva. Executive produced by Queen Latifah, the film also stars Paula Patton, Lauren London, Dascha Polanco, Donald Faison, and Robert Christopher Riley.
Ahead of the movies release we decided to ask ourselves, “What makes someone your perfect match?”. Now perfection is an unachievable ideal, because no one is without their flaws. There is no one size fits all equation and your perfect match is exactly that, your match; it is unique to you. However, there still are principles we can all use, as a guideline in determining whether we’ve found our match.
After feedback from members of both sexes we have established four stages that can help you determine if your significant other is the pea to complete your pod. These are Chemistry, Compatibility, Communication, and Comfort.
This is something that cannot be faked. We all know what it feels like to really vibe with someone. You get butterflies in your stomach whether you’re thinking about or with that person. Your conversations flow, you make each other laugh, you have a smile plastered on your face for hours after seeing or even speaking to them. Now if you’ve made your way to the bedroom, being sexually intimate can either deepen your connection or totally derail your chemistry. It’s important to keep in mind though that it may take a little effort to become in sync, but as long as you are both willing don’t let it deter you, because what matters is that you want to tear their clothes off.
As you get to know your significant other you’ll start to see whether or not you’re compatible. This entails discerning how this person fits into your life. Do you share similar interests and tastes? If not, they should at least be making an effort to take part in the things you enjoy. Do they get along with your family and friends, those closest to you? You’ll begin to notice their quirks and habits. If at this point you aren’t completely repulsed and looking for a way out, then you may have found your match.
Communication is an important part of life and crucial in determining whether your partner is the one for you. It involves building trust, having a mutual respect for each other, and being willing to listen to what your partner has to say. It also isn’t limited to verbal communication. Body language and intimacy also play in a role in establishing excellent communication between you and your partner. Understanding each others love language and making an effort to be mindful of how we receive and give love is also vital.
Over a period of time if the chemistry doesn’t fade plus you and your mate are in sync there comes a level openness and vulnerability. Everyone has let their guard down and there’s a steady stream of support, communication, understanding, and acceptance. Comfort is getting to be unapologetically you without fear of judgement. When you’ve reached this state you’ll know without a doubt you’ve found your perfect match.
We hope this helps those that are in search or just happen to fall upon that ‘Perfect Match.’
