Today I finished analyzing my past relationships. What made me happy in each and what split us up. It was amazing… there was an actual pattern to the things that I needed to make me happy… There are three elements I need.
All of them are equally necessary in a relationship for me. I have tried on multiple occasions to get by with two or one. I even once had all three, but two of them had luke warm intensity. In all those instances the relationship failed to last.
The things I need with a partner are…
1.) VERY Intense sexual attraction/passion.
2.) Affection/caring… as in no matter what you do I will be there for you when times are rough.
3.) Socializing together with friends on a regular basis. And I’m not talking once a month. ☺
I also discovered that if these three things are present in a relationship I accept all other flaws/non socially acceptable traits in the relationship and I’m still very happy.
Anyway I told you I would let you know what I found out and so I have.
I’m delighted to learn this about myself. I have hope. Going forward I will have a better idea of what to look for in a lasting relationship.
