I’ve been letting this question sit in my ask box, because for me it’s a really big question. So I tried to simplify it down to three main points.
Ideal traits in a partner
1. Honesty in communication
I’m a very emotional person and so having consistently open, honest communication is essential in my relationships; if people can’t openly talk about how they’re feeling then the relationship won’t function half as well as it could.
2. Similar or complimentary personality
I have never gotten the phrase “opposites attract”. If I’m going to get along with someone we better have similar views on life or else we’re going to butt heads.
There are many traits in a person that I would hope reflect or are similar to my own, but the primary one is queerness. I could never date someone who wasn’t part of the queer community.
3. Not just acceptance or tolerance, but appreciation
I would want my significant other to love and appreciate me for who I am, rather than simply tolerating parts of who I am so we can get along.
It’s like the difference between loving someone despite their flaws and loving someone for their flaws. Flaws are what make us human and if you can’t appreciate the beauty in imperfection then there will be a major conflict of interest between us.
Well… I mean, there is this one cutie that I really like *giggles nervously*…..
We’ve been friends for almost two years now….
We’ve been going steady for almost ten months… *blushes*
Yeah, I’m really into them. Like, a lot.
Yeah. Kind of in love with this kid. *squirms excitedly*
