Friendships, I would like people who enjoy my company and are supportive in times of need. Who accept me and want the best for me.And what I mean by that isn't just romantic relationships.
What do you want from friendships as well as romantic relationships?
What do you want from the world and your own life in general?
Looks like NEF re-resurrected it about 2 weeks ago.Friendships: I'm not sure I feel the need for friendships. But I do feel more connected to people when there is 100% genuineness and when I feel that we are both truly interested in one another, listening fully and openly to what we both have to say.
'Romantic' Relationships: The same is true for my life partner. This is required. The person needs to know themselves deeply, be self-aware and aware of others. This creates understanding and acceptance in the relationship. Must be contemplative yet empathetic. Creative in any which way. Focus on self-growth and an utter excitement, intensity and curiosity for life. I feel like perhaps I'd have more (close?) friendships if they fit this bill.
Looks like MATT re-resurrected it about 3 days ago.It has become very apparent to me recently that I crave some sort of intimacy with people. That's not to say I don't want fun. Fun is very important to me too, I can't imagine a life where I can't enjoy. But intimacy and depth is fun for me too. For me it is usually not boring, tedious or overwhelming. It's stimulating. I can't run away or hide from this anymore, and this forum is good for me in that way, to get to connect with like-minded individuals and to be able to describe my mind in ways that I can't really do in everyday life. Even if we're not super close. The people that I am close with, I can get pretty intimate with them in conversation but it often doesn't seem to happen during the moments that I really crave it. When it does, it's bliss.
Simple silly things can be fun too, it's not unusual for me to crack a really stupid joke and that can be fun too :')
So someone that I can listen to and enjoy the conversation with, and can talk to them about things. And someone that I can laugh with. Passion also
I also would like more open-mindedness and tolerance not only in my relationships but also life in general. I want to be in a place where I feel like people can express themselves a bit more openly without being seen as odd or whatever. But I don't like when it goes too over the top - that can get a little overwhelming, even for someone who identifies themselves as a 4.
Looks like KING found it about an hour ago.My ideal friendship is one with a lot of companionship - a lot of time spent together, deep conversations, being able to enjoy each other's company through any activity whether that's playing games together or working on homework together. I also seek friends who share my values and offer emotional support. Out of a romantic relationship I seek much the same only with an increased priority on time spent together as well as some degree of physical intimacy.
This O/P is "retired".
