The thing that I appreciate most in a partner is to stay optimistic. Especially when life throws an obstacle at you. We all know that life is not perfect.
On a typical day I get up early. Go play with my cat and watch t.v. if there is anything to watch. Then I get ready to go to work and then I am off. I work anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Then I come home. Do some chores around the house then maybe watch t.v.. Then go to bed and start it all over again the next day. But, this leaves a lot of time for that special lady. A lot of time to show her how I feel about her.
To me, the most important thing in my life are my kids. I don't get to see them as much as I would like to. So when I introduce someone to my kids. I hope for the best.
Cause if my kids don't like you. It will not work between us.
The keys to a lasting relationship are patience and forgiveness. Patience is a requirement. Not everybody is the same. So there will be some times when your significant other will get on your nerves. Forgiveness for those times that things might just get to much. Everybody has a bad day. But, these are just a few keys to a relationship.
The first date. I would prefer it to be very romantic. But, I can be realistic. I know that the first date should just be memorable. So that one lady would want to come back for the second date. That is the special date.
