energetic, has similar interests (but not a clone), is confident in knowing who they are and what they want out of life, ie. self aware, intellectual, fun and silly, authentic, emotionally and socially intelligent. I am financially stable and I expect the same of my significant other.
I believe that two people connect when they hold the same values and beliefs. It's a starting point. Differences should come into consideration and spice up the relationship after there is congruence in values and beliefs.
Completely open communication is the key to any type of successful relationship. Of course this concept must be accepted by both people! I like to see the lighter side of life, find humour in most things and not sweat the small stuff. I like to share a laugh with people, whether it be a stranger or a best friend. It's a great way to connect.
If my profile interests you, let's have a live phone conversation. I'd rather hear LOL, than read it.
