˜ "It's different for a lot of people, but for me, love is a partnership. It's the ability to find your teammate in someone else. It's not perfect and I don't know if it's the classic romantic sense of love because my experience has shown that unfortunately that ends very quickly and I don't think that is realistic in this day and age. I think you should be looking for more than that romantic sense; you should be looking for someone who is complimentary to you and helps you when you are not necessarily at your best." ˜
˜ "I think I look for supportive people. A lot of people take in support in different ways, but for me, I just want someone to encourage me. It's as simple as that and it's really surprising that not many people are willing to do that. You learn a lot and the hardest part is cutting that person off. I think I care too much. That's my problem. The saddest part is when people say as humans we grow colder and I'm starting to think we have to. You have to protect yourself or else you're just going to get caught in someone else's mess. I'm the personality where I care a lot and I've gotten hurt from it. They come back, they always do, but the hardest part is saying no because in the end they are just takers and I need someone who can both take and give." ˜
A cool chat about what we look for in love and dating!
