It's difficult to sum up something like this. Granted, everyone is one-of-a-kind, but I think we complicate our differences to a point where we make ourselves feel more alone than we have to be.
The most important thing is that two people can laugh and be content with one another no matter what it is they are doing. My best experiences have been with someone whom I do not have to make definate plans with. As long as we can meet up we can always entertain one another, whether it be out trying something new, doing something we've done before, or just spending a night at home.
Also, honesty is always key to making a relationship work. If you are not honest about what you want, think, need, and feel then it will never get dealt with. Or if it does get dealt with, it will be in a way much more complicated than it needed to be. I've found that it's beter to just look someone in they eye and tell them what they need to hear, but to expect the same in return.
I am open to differences in opinion and debate now again. That is what makes things interesting. If two people always agree about everything, then it leaves nothing to talk about after you get to know them well enough. I am by no means a perfect man and I know you are not a perfect woman, but it's the flaws and differences that keep things new and exciting.
Also, I truely want someone to make a real connection with. Not just in the first few weeks that we know one another, but I want it to be a meaningful, lasting connection. Maybe this is more up to fate than anything else, but I guess it takes the efforts of both people involved to work to this. It will never be perfect, no relationship is, but it's critical to have someone willing to work to always try to make things better.
