When it comes to relationships, I hope that my future partner would be someone who also desires to help others and improve our world. Someone who also loves to be affectionate, who values trust and great communication, and wants us both to learn from each other and support one another. The partnership I hope to eventually find, to me means sharing companionship, curiosity, tenderness, authenticity, openness, and love. While I think that one of the best things about having a relationship is getting to spend quality time together, I also like the idea that one of the roles of a true companion is to protect the other's solitude.
I've come to learn that when it comes to online dating, it's best to just keep it simple and see if we can be friends. If something more happens, great, but just let whatever connection happens happen naturally. No point in rushing into anything!
Movies can be great when they inspire me, comfort me, excite me, or challenge me. And I like TV shows that make me laugh!
