A Lonely Saturday Night

What is most important to me in a relationship?

I can’t answer that question, nor begin to define what I need. But I know I’ve got “it” with my partner.

Other relationships are different. There are categories. “Partner,” “friends”, “acquaintances,” “colleagues,” and beyond.

These are off the top of my extremely irritated mind, (in no particular order after the first one):

  • Respect
  • Time
  • Mutual Appreciation
  • Honesty
  • Kindness
  • Trust
  • Consideration
  • The Ability to Listen to Each Other with an Open Mind
  • Communication
  • Decency

I’m sure there are many more that I could add to this simple list. But the truth is: I think we are all just doing our best.
