Hey Rimshots and Cowbells,
I don’t have a ton of intimate relationship experience in my life, but recently I’ve been doing a lot of work on myself, overcoming fears, smashing limiting habitual belief systems, and putting myself out there, and it’s been awesome.
What limited experience I’ve got so far has shown me that I appreciate someone who is a good communicator, and someone who is self-aware and improvement-oriented.
But what about personal interests? I’m turning 38 this year, and let’s just say I’ve had quite some time to develop a strong, defined personality and set of passions.
So I don’t yet know what is crucial for me to be able to talk about with a partner…sure they don’t need to be into the wizardry behind the Super Famicom graphics engine. Perhaps its not so much that they need to be “into” whatever I’m into, but that they appreciate how enthusiastic I am. I don’t know… any advice? any stories of success or of failure?
