i guess this is for anyone, but what are you looking for?
what is your own definition of love and happiness?
me personally, i never had alot of friends and those that i were "friends" with would seem to only be committed to wasting my time or there is just zero common interest and it just dies out naturally, so i'd like to just be around people who think the same way i do. i want to be around people that live by the saying "treat others how you'd like to be treated".
so what is it that you all are looking for in a relationship
I define relationship as something that doesn't have to be defined as "Committed", rather it's a mutual "Win|Win" arrangement for both parties. May it be social, romantic, business, or otherwise.
As for what I'm looking for in a committed romantic partnership, I'd have to say the kind of relationship where I could build a nest out of couch cushions, pillows, and blankets, and not be judged, but rather joined. I could go on for hours about the specifics, but I think that sentence alone says more than enough.
To me it's finding someone that you love being around, can't get enough of, and want to be with for the rest of your life. A person who you makes you happy to make happy and who you near get tired of learning more about. Someone that gives your life meaning, a person who's there for you when you need them to be and who you can trust with your life. They'd also of course be someone who thinks all that about you too.
I don't believe in casual relationships or treating humans like disposable sex toys. I also don't much like the idea of entering into relationships simply for convince, like when two people who have nothing in common and might not even like each other but decide to become a couple for some inane reason like not wanting to be alone and settling for whatever they can get. That's just me though.
wow chocopyro and neet-one basically said everything i would have.ヽ(*・ω・)ﾉ
I don't see anything wrong with casual relationships, but I can certainly see where you're coming from with relationships where one or both parties dehumanize or devalue the other as a pleasure object or "The cure for the void in my life". Its kinda an unpalatable way to treat other humans.
^_^ That happens to me in just about 90% of the threads where I can't get a word in the first two pages.
I'd like to have something that doesn't require too much maitenence, it just works naturally. Any problems or disagreements had fade out naturally through two mature adults working on a conclusion. Something that motivates you to see the world and experience things from a completely different perspective.
*and someone to play Monster Hunter 4 with
Loyalty and not being alone...then theres warching anime and playin videogames
being with the person you love/like... having the same interest... doesn't suffocate... not too clingy and possessive... don't assume much... and most of all trust...
well as long as it doesn't end up at relationshit it would be fine... xD
very context dependent and different with every person I have one with
A kind of best friend but with love and and a lot more emotions!
