This is my idea of a perfect relationship. Although some of it is idealistic, I still think we need to aim high. I lived this way for the nineteen years that I was married to Julie before she tragically died of a brain haemorrhage. And I intend to live this way when I remarry.

My Perfect Relationship

I need someone who is affectionate and considerate, who eagerly desires intimacy, but agrees with me that sexual intimacy is reserved for life-long relationships.

In the early part of the relationship, you would want to spend a lot of time talking, walking, picnicking, getting to know each other (and each other's families and friends).

Most things are negotiable. After all, relationships are about compromise.

You would need to be a committed Christian. On that point, I cannot compromise.
