I’m pretty upfront when I feel there’s some issue in a relationship, and I need someone who shares this approach – You are able to verbalise your needs and feelings, and are willing to start a conversation about issues in a relationship. – To quote my favourite advice columnist Captain Awkward, “Introverts are welcome, but the strong silent type does nothing for me.” This goes for online communication too – I’m looking for someone who’s also interested in an ongoing daily conversation where we can build a repository of in-jokes, shared references, issues we feel passionately about, funny/cute things, etc. If this sounds stressful rather than exciting, we’re probably not a good fit.
