There is an article going around called '2.5 things I want in a partner'. It basically says the writer just wants someone emotionally stable, and smart (as in critical thinking), and hopefully also is their friend and makes them laugh. Several of my friends are commenting on it, and saying how perfect it is, and that everything else isn't important. Does this seem insane to anyone else? I feel like those things are so basic they aren't even worth mentioning. All of my friends hit those basic qualifications, they wouldn't be friends otherwise. What I want in a partner is a heck of a lot more than that! I want love, sexual compatibility, financial compatibility, similar nurturing instincts, similar goals in life... And that is just off the top of my head!
