LIKES AND DISLIKES IN A RELATIONSHIP:
likes: to have something in common, love to spend time with each other but have lives of our own as well; respect, trust, and honesty; to be a giver and provider of all that I can without expecting an immediate return, to see someone grow and flourish in their life because they know I'm there for them 100 percent of the time.
dislikes: her not vocalizing opinions soon enough, me having difficulty understanding what she really feels, a lack of trust, her not standing up to me when she feels strongly about something, her always having to have something done "special" when we go out to eat.., me thinking that she is complaining too much when maybe I need to realize it is these differences that make her unique and all the more special to me

denomination I am for sure right now, but I know that I'll probably have to be a
