Trust and loyalty to one another is the foundation of a relationship but the true test is someone who is willing to compromise for that other person. I know that in a relationship that I will not always be interested in what my partner is interested in, but because that "something" is important to her, then it is important to me as well. I believe that is the true moment when you know you care about that other person and perhaps they understand that and care about you in the same way.
I am looking for someone intelligent, compassionate, and willing to explore new things. I want someone that is able to communicate and can realize that although we are not perfect, we are perfect for each other.
