Lessons learned

I recently was asked what I thought I had learned from my past relationships. I’ve spent some time thinking about the lessons I’ve learned and here’s my response:

I’ve learned that I’m able to balance my needs and wants with those of the person I love. I’ve learned that I’m willing to fight and work through conflicts in order to make a relationship work. But, perhaps most importantly, I’ve learned that the person that want to share my life with must be assertive, kind and outgoing. I’m interested in being with a guy who knows how to take control and is able to- for lack of a better term – lead me.
