    Default Gamma insights on ideal relationships

    Out of curiousity, how would you Gammas characterize an ideal/good relationship? What is important to have/avoid? What kind of activities/traits/etc are most desirable?

    An ideal relationship.. absolute mutual trust, freedom to express opinions about anything and everything, mutual benefit and cooperation... probably the most general things that come to mind at the moment. Obviously this is just my opinion and others may disagree, yadayadayada, I shouldn't have to say this but no doubt some idiot out there will take offense if I don't put this stupid disclaimer on. meh.

    For me:

    Absolutely no drama. Drama = insincerity and manipulation. I insist on frankness whenever there is a problem.

    I like being able to talk about anything and not need to keep secrets, though as an introvert I find that there are always things I don't want to talk about with anyone. I guess the important thing here is knowing I could talk about it if I wanted to.

    Maximum reliability. We both do what we say we're going to do and can always be relied upon to provide our "thing" in the relationship.

    No need for regality or any ostentatious forms of courtship, except as occasional "presents" when we feel like it.

    Interactions should be focused on giving stimulation and not attention.

    i like this description, too. although i doubt that i require anything i'd call "maximum reliability."

    No, the post itself, overall.

    I also relate to what discojoe wrote.

    Aww... this is really encouraging, as this is almost exactly what I have with my ILI boyfriend.

    Well said.


    I also like what discojoe said about stimulation, lack of drama and frankness.


    I actually can't even think of anything to add.

    bump.

    what are you looking for in your significant others?

    what do you bring to the table yourself?

    Wit, intelligence, a certain pragmatism.
    Emotional connection, affection, laughter, tenderness.
    Adventure, stability. Someone who gets me and who I get back. Comfort, authenticity where being ourselves with each other is only natural.
    Trust, loyalty, honesty, dependability. Friendship, equality. Someone who can see into me better than I can see myself, who believes in me, who nurtures the part of me that is protective, carefree, and is both grounded and intellectual. Someone who, just by thinking of them, gives me strength to not give up in mental, emotional, and physical hardship. Someone who inspires me to get beyond my own weakness in order to persevere...not only for my own sake but if it means we both can benefit and both can have nice things acquired from struggle and hard work.

    Someone who not only reassures me I'm a good person but who reassures me of my capabilities and helps me believe in my own competence and who can help me when my thinking and understanding is in chaos, who helps me see through tasks muddled by my own confusion, especially when it deals with matters outside of relations and ethics, especially considering a great deal of the stress I deal with is due to being slow to learn things on my own that aren't spelled out in simple, step by step language. I need someone who is patient and can spell things out for me without treating me like a total moron or doesn't look at me like I'm mentally challenged on account of making numerous errors until I have the muscle memory to do something new. Otherwise, daily living would prove to be an ass pain for both parties without that assistance. It's something I'm deeply sensitive about.
    what do you bring to the table yourself?
    Affection, realism, flexibility, stability, tolerance, a listening ear, emotional support, principles, decency, kindness, expansion and the desire to do new and edifying things. I give and receive personal space. I'm not afraid to give compliments and to encourage someone I care about, especially when they are struggling to see their own worth. I'm able to commit and work hard for someone who has personal importance. I'm able to dream while remaining down to earth, seeing how things really are and seeing how things can realistically improve.

    I don't have any ideal relationship in my head. It boils down to the connection and rapport I have with the person and the mutual happiness and satisfaction derived from being together. Of course, practical considerations are paramount, but there is no ideal relationship that isn't rooted in friendship and mutual support, understanding, fun, and shared humor.
