I'm looking for someone who's end game isn't finding someone to have children with. That is, I'm open to the possibility given the right relationship but for me, the decision to have children is dependent on finding the right partner first. If I don't have children I'll be fine with that too. I hope to find someone that has a career they love and their own personal goals and interests. I believe strong relationships are initially built on continuing to pursue personal goals and activities while sharing those experiences with your partner. Through this process, common goals and interests emerge that can help sustain a life long partnership while allowing each person to retain their unique identity.
I think life long education is important. You can always find someone to learn from. I believe we should all seek out mentors and teachers so we can continue to grow throughout life. That's my general life's philosophy.
