I was curious to know, what do you really look for in a man?

I'm a very strong minded, independent woman. And of course I want my SO to respect that. But I would also like for him to be that way to. A man who can hold their own and pull their own weight. Someone who COULD provide for the family solo if it came down to that. I've always been the one who wears the pants in the relationship, makes more money, remembers things for the BOTH of us... at least for me, it gets old. I'm tired of being the one that always holds things together, and the one in control. I wish I could find someone who I can trust to take the reigns sometimes, and let me sit back and take a breather once in a while...its discouraging to feel as though this will never happen for me.... =(

I would really like a companion that understands that I can take care of myself and my son. I just want a person that can freely give affection, love, and respect.  I'm not big on PDA, but I like holding hands and a smootch here and there. I like to spoon. It is very difficult to find a man that can handle my independence and still give me the affection/attention I want.  I can find guys that appreciate my independence but they don't want to hold hands or hold doors for me.

Ok, as far as men go, not my thing.  What I look for in a person, is someone who can respect themeselves. I believe firmly in mutual respect in a relationship.  I look for someone who is supportive. Someone who has a mind of their own. Someone who is understanding and compasionate. Last I have to be able to hold a conversation with that person. Sex is fine, but what's the point, if I can't talk to the person I with. Communication is key to any relationship in my personal opinion. It has to be there. As well, I am very independent woman, I am looking for someone who will respect that and not try to control me.

I want someone that I can have fun with, someone that gives me attention. I would like to be a SAHM. Someone that helps out around the house if I am working, Indepentent, not controling, loves my kids like they are his own, gets along with my family, clean cut, I love tattoos and piercings but I want them to look presentable not dirty. I want a 50/50 relationship, meaning cores/money all that should be 50/50. I want someone that can handle my nightmares and not get mad when I kick them in my sleep. :-)

I think what I want most is someone to be a really good friend.
