You're an idealist, but not to the point that you can't see a lover for the person that they truly are. In fact, you're more naturally skilled than most at seeing through a lover's facade to the real person inside. You have an innate grasp of psychology -- an instinctive understanding of what makes your sweetie tick.
You can read their subtlest signals and interpret them accurately, and that's a real gift in love. Put together with your strong sense of intuition, you're uniquely situated to make good choices for yourself in terms of partners, because you can figure out early on who is worth your time and who isn't. This is not to say that you won't make mistakes and choose the wrong person from time to time; everyone does that. But if you pay attention, you have all the answers and information within yourself that you need to make the right choices in love and attain the affection and connection that you seek. Your sweetie will appreciate your compassion, your sensitivity and your ability to understand them, because that truly is love: seeing someone for who they are, accepting them and encouraging them to be their real, wonderful self.
