“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together… and I knew it. “ – Tom Hanks, Sleepless In Seattle

I’ve heard it said that some folks put more thought into what they want in a new car than what they want in a relationship. When asked what they want, the answer is often superficial— appearance, car, taste in music. Good stuff, but not durable.

Interesting relationship stories have character traits, values, and behaviors at the core. I think the same is true of an interesting relationship—1000s of tiny little things and an awareness of character traits and values exhibited in daily life.

All to ask, what do you want? What traits and characteristics do you most value in an intimate relationship?
