      Hi,
           One life partner is an understandable preference. What I am referring to is a trait. Some partners like  al lot attention, while others want their space. Thanks for responding. I hope i cleared it up.

    Hi lezsaysit,
    personally I think it's very important for each partner to have a degree of independence. Each has to have their own separate interests or activities or simply each's own time. Sharing most things is good but being too clingy I think can affect the relationship.

    Myself and my partner work together but we each have our own little treats if you like. I like to go and play with my bikes and cars and she likes to get her hair done or  go out with her girl friends.

    I think this is necessary for later in life when unfortunately one partner will pass on before the other,

    MJ.

    Independent absolutely. I need "me time" so my boyfriend better find hobbies and activities to do so he isn't bothering me, texting me, or calling me to check and make sure I still love him. (My sister had a boyfriend like that.)

    My boyfriend and I are pretty good together. We both do our own thing during the day and come home and have dinner and hang out together at night, but sometimes we do our own thing then too.

    I like having a boyfriend that doesn't freak out when I spontaneously decide to go on a road trip with my friends. I like a boyfriend that doesn't mind if I'm gone for a week on vacation without him.
