Although you don’t want a doormat, the best choices for a romantic partner will be either a number two or the loving and sacrifice number 6. The problem with number 8 is because of your determination to take the lead and be in charge; it actually limits your potential partners; you really have only yourself to blame.  Perhaps the best partnership of all would be with the number 4, as you both share many similar characteristics, such as drive, determination and being goal-orientated. Furthermore, you would actually complement each other in business as number 8 is excellent at seeing the bigger picture, while the detail orientated number 4 would recognize and deal with every minor little detail.

They are very independent and will never be happy following your rules. Number 5 is as far removed from the structured business life as it is possible to get, their creative, and artistic styles would create havoc in your organized somewhat boring world. Number 3 is quite simply irresponsible, which would not work for number 8.
