supportive allows a person the freedom to be who they are, pursue their
interests, and share their dreams without adversity.

things sizzle in the bedroom. Just sayin...)
9) Does he/she make you laugh? Enjoy a good time?
Nothing is worse than being involved with a wet blanket! Red flags go up in the early stages of a relationship. Heed the warning signs! (The inability to enjoy life can be a sign of depression or serious personality issues).

he/she make reservations in advance? Buy tickets for events ahead of
time? Planning signifies commitment. Planning and commitment can lead
to a happier future!
