The whole knight in shining armor thing? Not all it’s cracked up to be. You've been there, done that; the guy you thought was 'the one' turned out to be just another douchebag.
It's not that you don't believe in true love, you just know that at the end of the day, being best friends with the guy you’re sleeping with is pretty fucking awesome.
1. You don’t want to be taken care of, you want to care for each other equally.
You don't need to be courted or sent roses with a love note in order to be wooed. Romance? Ehh. You don't really have time for all that.
Because you two started out as buddies, there’s really no need for the typical, cheesy romance. Instead of feeling like a trophy wife, you’d like to be his partner.
2. You’d rather share dreams than chase his.
You’re looking for a man with whom you can share ambitions; someone whose life also hasn't taken the path they expected it to.
You want to stay up late talking about your dreams and how you’re going to make them work together. Any man who'll put his dreams before yours isn’t worth your time. You’re better than that.
3. You want to talk about things, not worry about them.
If something is bothering you, you’d rather talk it out with your partner than tip-toe around the elephant in the room. You just don't have the time or energy to play those kinds of games.
Communication is important to you, and you know that the only way to solve something is to talk it out.
4. You don’t just want to date someone, you wanna be with them.
You’ve gotten to the age where you know that ‘bad boys’ might be fun to hook up with, but you stay far away from them when looking for a partner.
Someone who you can really be with has more substance and character than just any guy who could be your boyfriend.
5. You know that a partner is so much more than a boyfriend or girlfriend.
Everyone is so terrified of being alone that many people “settle down” just to be with someone. Really, what they’re doing is just plain settling.
A boyfriend or girlfriend is easy to come by; a true partner should be cherished.
