Introduction to your archetype’s personality in relationships

You deeply appreciate people’s time and respect the boundaries of others. Although, you do tend to get into relationships where you easily lose yourself and your personal boundaries, which is something to be aware of. Exploring where relationships have veered off from mutual respect of each other’s boundaries can be of help to you.

The Wanderer Empath can make friends under almost any circumstances or scenarios. You see moments as opportunities for connection and this is an important part of your life experience. In fact, you are generally willing to put more effort into your relationship than in most other areas of life.

Your archetype’s personality in love

You love to have a person in your life to call your own, not in a possessive way, but a person to love, rely on and connect with. You enjoy that sense of stability that comes with being with a partner. When you have a relationship like this, you find other areas of your life less stressful. You are able to pursue your dreams with more drive as you feel stabilized by a committed partnership.

You are very giving, compassionate, and affectionate in love. You shower your partners with gifts, attention, and reassurance. When in a relationship, you cannot help but curate and share with your lover all the things you are working on and doing. In return, you like to hear about what your partner’s interests are as well.

You see the relationships as a container for you and your partner’s hopes, fears, longings, and desires. Within the structure of being together, you feel free to explore, expand, and try new things. Long-term relationships are a constant in your life, and you believe in the power that comes from opening up, being vulnerable, and sharing your feelings.

Your approach to romance and dating can be playful. The Wanderer enjoys predicting what their partner wants and sets out to make it happen.

When not in a long-term relationship, you tend to enjoy dating and the exciting energy exchanged when just getting to know someone new. You might be interested in non-traditional relationship structures as well.

Over time, your giving personality can sometimes feel weighed down by all the pressure you put on yourself to give to the partnership. Recognizing that it is possible to make the give-take aspects a little more mutual can help you relax when approaching love. Learn to fill your energy stores before someone else’s. It is okay to get your needs met and apply your generosity back towards yourself as well. Overall commitments for you hold a prominent place in your life. You give much of your vibrancy to romantic relationships.
