What I need from My Partner
Sometime's people can just be selfish, sassy, moody people. I can easily fit all of those three categories. When thinking about who I want to be in a long term relationship with, I always come back to this though, "I need these things out of this person." I am not saying that I need to have material things or to be taken out all of the time (even though every girl loves to be pampered!). I am saying that depending on the person, they need certain help just to get through life! I realize that I can't always have what I want, but could you give these to me, my partner?
I Need You to Touch Me
Sometimes all someone needs is a hug. I want someone to literally hold me together when I can't. Nothing can feel better than letting someone know that you are there for them, and the easiest way to do that is with a hug. This hug also needs to mean that you have support. Body language shows so much, I don't just need a hug, I need a supportive hug.
I Need My Space
I believe that being with each other is very important, but being able to be alone is just as important. Just having time to myself helps me be able to recheck and organize my thoughts. Girls like to be alone where they can paint their toes and watch cheesy reality TV shows. Having alone time will help me clear my mind every once in a while. After I have time to myself, I appreciate my time with you a little bit more.
I Need to Know Your Opinion
Men...let's just face it, women love to talk. Well I need you to talk back! I want to hear how you feel and be able to continue the conversation with me. I want you to not just agree with me if you don't, but understand where I coming from and keep an open mind. Even if we end up getting into a passionate debate, it's better than just staring the wall.
I Need Your Push
I love progress and relationships do too. I have always set goals and work hard to achieve them. I want a partner that also works to achieve their goals as well. Nothing ever improves when it doesn't move. It doesn't even matter how you want to progress in your life, but just don't give up. This will push both of us into a better future.
I Need Your Forgiveness
I will pick fights, say the wrong things, have my breakdowns, and mostly I will be completely...human. I know I have OCD and don't know how to handle some situations, but I promise I will always work to be better. I need a partner who will be able to tell me, "it's OK" when I do make mistakes. I need someone who will support my decisions and be there when those decisions don't turn out as planned.
