Dating, Compatibility, and Your Human Design Profile
Your ideal love match
Whether you’re single or co-mingled, it can be helpful to know how you operate in relationships and how your partner — or potential partner — does too, and whether this is an ideal love connection. Based on your Human Design, of course!
The best place to look for romantic compatibility is not your energy type (any energy type can be compatible with any energy type) but at your Profile. In Human Design your Profile consists of two numbers, arranged like a fraction (i.e. 1/3, 5/2, or 4/6), that represents your personality. Some personalities are more compatible with others. Before you jump to see what your beau or Hinge match’s profile is, get to know thyself first.
You can look up your Human Design chart here for free. Once you enter your birth info, and your bodygraph is generated, your Profile is listed under the Information section. Here’s a screenshot from my chart. My Profile is a 4/6 and circled in red below.
What Your Profile Tells You about Your Love Life
If you have a 1 in your profile…
… you want sturdy foundations in a relationship and you can secure them by taking your time to investigate and be curious about a potential partner before fully committing. You feel insecure if you don’t know enough, so take your time and exercise your natural caution and questioning to get to the bottom of things. You can be outgoing but selective, which comes across as restless or commitment phobic to others. But underneath this is a deep need for stability, and once you find that person who you don’t want to lose, your commitment is total.
If you have a 2 in your profile…
… you are someone who needs a lot of alone time. Be selective about who you date and be sure they understand and respect your need for solitude to do your own thing. Being in relationship is easy for you; you’re an easygoing personality. Seek someone who reflects your unique magic and natural talents, which you may be oblivious to! Feedback helps you feel recognized, and it’s healthy to gain a sense of identity from the input of others. Because of your cooperative nature, be sure not to over give or become submissive in relationships. Honor your need for focused hermit time.
If you have a 3 in your profile…
… dating for you comes with ups and downs. Embrace that your life is a process of trial and error and trust that these are learning experiences here to help you grow. Don’t be afraid to move on when a relationship is no longer working, and take that growth and apply it to your next relationship. Experimentation is how you gain wisdom in this life, so don’t take failures and rejections so hard. You’re not designed to succeed in every romantic encounter. Take your time in getting involved, there’s no need to rush things.
If you have a 4 in your profile…
… your opportunities come through your social networks, so you’ll have better luck meeting your person if introduced by mutual friends, or at a birthday party or work, than on a dating app. Dating strangers is not advisable; “friends first” is a better strategy for you. You have an warm heart and are a natural people person, but you can also be easily wounded by any slight or rejection and retreat to your ice palace in self-protection. The key is to be open and clear in your communication, including your expectations. Seek a partner you deeply trust, who honors your needs, and gives you lots of TLC.
If you have a 5 in your profile…
… your charisma draws people in but be wary of others projecting onto you as you can serve as a mirror to them. Choose partners that see the real you, and keep revealing that to them instead of trying to impress with your charm and idealized versions of yourself. You are a natural problem solver but be aware this can lead to codependent relationships where you’re always the fixer. Stay grounded in the dating process and seek a partner who will give you reality checks to help you move through life with your feet planted firmly on the ground.
If you have a 6 in your profile…
… your first 30 years are meant to be a period of experimentation (much like having a 3 in your profile) and so it’s not advisable to commit to life partnership until after 30, even though your desire for a soulmate is strong. Take your time to find a life partner that recognizes your deep wisdom; you operate at a higher level than most. This means you can come across as detached or aloof because of your lofty position. Select someone who supports your personal evolution and understands the journey you’re on — and is not intimidated by it. Trust is big for you.
Alrighty, let’s get to it. Who are you romantically compatible with? This also extends to friendships and business partners.
