1. They Are Smart

Not just anyone can be a user experience or user interface designer. UX/UI designers need to have a wide variety of skills, and they need to be knowledgeable in a wide variety of fields, including psychology, software development, project management and graphic design. While they aren't expected to be an expert in every field, they are often an expert in a few fields and widely versed in many others. UX/UI designers are smart, and smart is sexy.

2. They Make You Look Good

Not that you need anyone to help you look good, but UX/UI designers are experts at doing just that. UX/UI designers love helping their clients succeed, and there is no one they will want to help show off more than their partners. Whether they compliment you in front of your friends, treat you so well you glow or help you to always make the best first impression, UX/UI designers help you look your best.

3. They Make Good Money

According to Glassdoor.com, UX/UI designers make an average of $85,000 annually, though they can make up to $113,000 annually. Depending on the part of the world you live in, and UX/UI designers can live anywhere, that is a pretty nice salary. It may not buy you a mansion, but who wants that much house to have to take care of anyway?

4. They Focus on the Details

Have you ever gotten a haircut or been furious with your partner and he or she didn't even notice? UX/UI designers pay attention to detail. It is in their nature to see not only the big picture, but also all the small details that work together to make the big picture so successful. Never again will you have to deal with a partner who is utterly oblivious!

5. They are Creative

UX/UI designers have to be creative if they want to help their clients beat out their competition. After the work is done and it is time to play, however, your UX/UI designer will be ready to turn his or her creative focus towards you. If you are looking for romantic grand gestures or memorable gifts and outings instead of boring old dinners and movies, UX/UI designers should be your number one choice.

6. They Aim to Please

For UX/UI designers, pleasing the audience is the number one goal. Date a UX/UI designer, and pleasing you will become his or her number one goal! Don't waste your time on a partner who is self-centered or egotistical. Date a UX/UI designer who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated. Just be careful not to take it too far. Your sweet UX/UI designer can be easy to walk all over if you aren't careful.

7. They are Flexible

UX/UI designers have a number of different roles they have to be able to do to provide their clients' clients with the best experience possible. This requires UX/UI designers to be flexible and able to go with the flow. If you are high maintenance or you tend to change your mind a lot, a UX/UI designer may have just the level of patience you are looking for!

8. They Find and Fix Issues

How many people try to just ignore their relationship problems, hoping they will go away? For UX/UI designers, however, finding and fixing issues is a way of life. Plus, the best UX/UI designers can even fix issues before they turn into problems. It's good to know that someone else cares about your relationship working out as much as you do. It's also good to know that you don't have to do it alone. You and your partner are in this together.

9. They Analyze the "Why"

Everyone has rough days when they act a little off. Do this in front of the average person, and he or she may think you are crazy and ignore you until you calm down. With a UX/UI designer on the other hand, he or she will be more interested in finding out the reasons why you behaved the way you did. While the analyzing may be annoying at first, it is really great to have a partner who truly wants to understand you so he or she can help improve your relationship for next time.

10. They Work Well With Others

Lastly, since UX/UI designers work for other people, they have to be able to work well with others. This means that instead of demanding his own way or only seeing things from her perspective, your UX/UI designer will take the time to talk with you so you can see each others' points of views and come to a great solution together.
