I'm not in a rush to be in a traditional partnership, but I do crave meaningful intimate connection.
If that evolves into something lasting, wonderful! If not, so be it.
I don't believe that successful relationships are necessarily lasting ones.
That being said, in the past I've experienced incredible growth and feelings of connectedness within the context of longer relationships, and welcome that kind of deep familiarity again should it happen.
In a partnership I want to love and be loved selflessly; to genuinely want the other to pursue/receive whatever they wish from this life, and to be present (or not) for them as they need.
I desire the company of positive people. I feel like one of the big challenges of our time is apathy, and I think I do best with others who try to bring meaning and gratitude to suffering and sadness.
Libra sun, Cancer moon, Sagittarius rising, if that sort of thing is informative for you.
