7 tips to dating by your numbers
Sometimes you need a little cosmic help when choosing a partner or deciding whether or not to stick with your current one. Many people turn to fortune-tellers and zodiac charts but did you know the Life Path is one of the most important and easiest ways to determine dating by your numbers? Life path number, similarly to the zodiac, is derived from your date of birth.
Knowing this number can reveal your most fulfilling destiny and the significant reasons you are here during this lifetime. Moreover, it gives specific detail on the personal traits of yours and others that will assist you on life’s journey.
This article will explain how Life Path number shows each person’s traits and abilities and the negative aspects of the personality you must learn to balance or avoid for a successful relationship. Here are some excellent tips on how to optimize your love life using your life path number:
1. Determine Your Life Path Number
Your Life Path number is derived from the sum of the digits of your birth date. First, convert the month, day, and birth year to single digits and add them together. Then take the single digits of this resulting number and add those together. Do this for each sum until a single digit is reached.
For example, for a birthdate of November 21st, 1947, you do this calculation:
11-21-1976 gives 11+2+1+1+9+4+7 = 35, which gives 3+5 which gives 8
[*The ‘Master Numbers’ 11 and 22 are exceptions to this rule. November the 11th month, birthdays on the 11th or 22nd, or sum totals of 11 or 22. These numbers do not get converted to single digits.]
2. Determine the Life Path Number of your partner or love interest
Ask about their birthday. For your partner, you most likely already know (and their age will give you the correct year). It is perfectly natural to want to know when your love interest’s birthday is coming up. If you want to be sure, make a joke about your driver’s license or ID photo and ask to see theirs. You have to be quick to spot the date of birth without looking like a creep. Do the same calculations as above for the Life Path number for dating by your numbers.
3. Identify your compatible group
Life Path 1 with a3 or 5 is most compatible. 1 is bossy and opinionated. 3 and 5 have the kind of disposition that helps them put up with such a personality.3 is happy-go-lucky and loves the more serious and self-conscious 1. 3 will not be bothered by your need to be in charge or not take it too seriously.
5 is daring and flexible and adds a charged energy that will be great for both of you. A good match for a 1 is also 6, which is loving and caring and harmonious. 6 gets along with just about all the Life paths, though. Life path 3 also click well with 7s as their mystery and intrigue add depth to the 3 life experience.
If you have a Life Path 2, you are best paired with the romantic 8 or the humanitarian person 9. The business-minded 8 is a perfect match for the laid-back 2, who will work effortlessly with the decisive, go-getter 8. The refined, serene, but somewhat standoffish 9 is also a good match, as is the caring, easy-going 6.
If you are on the 4 Life Path, you need stability above all. Your best bet is a focused, determined 1 and goal-oriented 8. You are all very organized and disciplined and will get along famously. A more balanced and often surprisingly stable ad fulfilling relationship is between a 4 and a 7, as the otherworldly, genuine, and provocative 7 is a constant source of curiosity and wonder to the stable 4.
Life Path same for 2 partners
While it is recommended that people with the same Life Path don’t get into romantic relationships, the 5 is the exception. Two 5s are actually great together. They have a wonderful, passionate and stimulating partnership. The 5 requires freedom, independence and an adventurous lifestyle, and in this regard, they are particularly favorable for each other
4. Know your incompatible group
It is usually best to date someone with the same life path number while dating by your numbers. If you happen to connect, you may have a passionate, comfortable, short-lived relationship. This is because the similarities in your traits will clash where they are strong but bring you both down where they are weak.
Life path 1 should altogether avoid the authoritative, business-like 8. 1 and 8 are always competing. The tender, discreet, and diplomatic 2 can complement the 1 in friendships and business, but romantically there is very little chemistry. The contemplative, thoughtful 7 can be a good friend and advisor to the 1, but they annoy each other in romance.
The realistic, dependable 4 can seem to be a good fit for a 2 at first but eventually will find themselves bored to death. This will also happen with 4 and introverted 7.
Compatibility for Number 3
For a 3, the grounded, practical, trustworthy 4 should be avoided.3 and 4 seem to bring the worst out each other. Even though the stability might be helpful to a 3, the fights are not worth it. 4, because you need stability, it is hard to understand the playful, unpredictable 3 and the attractive but restless 5. While a 3 or 5 might initially find the confident, sexy 8 very attractive, they are likely to suppress the spark of the relationship with constant criticism.
5. Build the pros of your partner
Now that you know what each life path offers, you can better determine how to pick a great partner or make the most of your relationship. Let’s say you found an ideal match. Look for ways to bring out and enjoy the characteristics that make you both compatible. For example, 4 and 8 should work on a project together.
You will both be impressed with each other’s ability to get things done right. This will build the bond of trust and can be a huge turn-on. Two 5s should, of course, go on a trip together. When dating by your numbers, falling in love and staying in love should be accessible when you do something exhilarating for the other.
6. Identify the cons and work around them
At times, the chemistry is powerful with a less than ideal match, say between a 2 and a 5. Vibrant 5 can build a delightful, spirited, exploratory relationship that will constantly excite 2. However, the 5 is also sometimes irresponsible and indulgent, and this can hurt a vulnerable 2. The best way to deal with this if you really like each other and want to proceed is to know and accept your partner for who they are.
If you realize that you like to be on time while your partner always runs a bit late, give them an earlier deadline or meeting time than you actually need. Or delegate the responsibilities – let a 5 pick the adventure, while the 2 plan the spending. Find a way to complement each other and use your strengths to overcome the weaknesses of others.
7. Consider a long term decision
If you have found a compatible partner, the life path traits can give you the tools you need to make the relationship work. You will know exactly what your partner is like and what to expect in most situations. You will also be able to be yourself and know that they will love you for it. If you have found this with a love interest, pursue them! They could very well be the one.
If you are already in a relationship while dating by your numbers, this person is going to be a keeper. You might even consider taking them to meet the parents or even getting married. On the other hand, if your partner is entirely incompatible, you will realize this possibly very early on. If it is an early stage in dating, you might want to bow out or not see this person anymore quickly.
If you have already officially begun dating, you may need to consider moving on, even if it is a long-term relationship. It may lead to a lot of heartaches if you choose to remain with this person. Also, recognize that there is very likely someone else out there for both of you with whom you could make it work beautifully.
