Kim Kardashian has hinted at the qualities she is looking for in a future partner amid her crumbling marriage to Kanye West.
On the series finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, filmed prior to her divorce filing, Kim, 40, revealed her hopes to be in a relationship with someone who enjoyed working out with her and who also loved watching the same television shows as she.
Reflecting on her life and marriage with Kanye during an intimate chat with her mother Kris Jenner, Kim confessed she had achieved everything she had set her mind to – yet had no partner to share that with.

And while Kim admitted she initially felt fulfilled living with just their four children while Kanye resided hundreds of miles away in Wyoming, that all changed when she turned 40 and started to reassess her values.
‘I’ve lived up to my expectations and achieved ten times more than I even thought was humanly possible. But I don’t have a life to share that with.
‘Like, I do. Obviously, my kids and everything. But am I just gonna sit here and think, “Okay, my kids fulfill me and I’m good?” And then I never thought I was lonely, and I always thought that’s totally fine. I could just have my kids. My husband moves from state to state and I’m on this ride with him. And I was okay with that.’
Kim admitted she got along best with Kanye when they were living apart, a fact she was not proud of.

‘And then, after turning 40 this year I realized no, I don’t want a husband that lives in a completely different state. To me, I thought, oh my God, that’s when we’re getting along the best. But then that is sad to me and that’s not what I want.
‘I want someone that we have the same shows in common. I want someone that wants to workout with me.’
Kim even revealed she had started to feeling envious working out with her sister Khloe Kardashian and her boyfriend Tristan Thompson every morning during quarantine.

‘Like every single day, Khloe and Tristan and I would workout at 6AM, the three of us, and I was third-wheeling it for a good, you know, eight months in quarantine. And I was so envious of that.’
And while Kim admits she has everything she could possibly ever want and more, she conceded it was the little things she was looking for in a partner.
‘I have the extravagant, everything you could possibly imagine, and no one will ever do it like that. I know that. You know what I mean? And I’m grateful for those experiences. But… I think I’m ready for the smaller experiences that I think will mean a lot.’

Kris then gets emotional as she tells Kim, ‘I just want you to be happy and joyful. And I think I haven’t seen that in a really long time.’
‘It breaks my heart, because I just want them to be happy,’ Kris says in a confessional. ‘And I want her to be joyful and have the best relationship that she can possibly have. And she has four beautiful kids, and I just want them to be happy.’
Kim admits that she is currently ‘numb’ and says she won’t cry in front Kris, but says ‘I do know that I will be happy. I didn’t come this far, just to come this far, not to be happy. Remember that.’
