So here he is, in a nutshell:
- smart & educated
- practical & resourceful
- ambitious & energetic
- patient, peaceful and inspires peacefulness in those around him no matter what the circumstances he faces
- always willing to give love and affection, and never withholds
- does not use passive-aggressive "communication"
- slow to anger
- honest, good character and holds fast to his integrity
- my age or younger
- good looking & healthy
- enjoys life and has a sense of humour... and the big stuff:
- our life together is on a firm foundation of the word of God
- he encourages me and responds to my encouragement
- he is my partner and my co-pilot. I am not just along for his ride, sometimes he is the navigator on my journey.
- he never forgets that I am my own person with opinions, feelings and beliefs that come from an experience and life separate from him
- he shares a similar vision for life as me, we are going in the same direction
I really don't think that's too much to ask for, do you?
