What I don't want....

There was a "Sex and the City" episode about dealbreakers in relationships. Some of them seemed surprisingly trivial. Carrie had to give up smoking for Aidan, which she failed to do. Impotence was a problem for Trey and Kirstin Davis. Social status seemed to prey on the lawyer played by Cynthia Nixon. And commitment was an issue for Samantha.

Smoking is unhealthy and long term would be a problem for me, but short term I could accept it and try to help my partner quit. When she need something to suck on, I would be happy to propose a substitute...

I think a jaded and cynical attitude would be a deal breaker for me. I have done that in college, and it is too world weary for me. I am naturally upbeat and positive despite having a few setbacks in life.

I try to live by the notion stated by Samuel Johnson on hearing of a man's marriage after a bitter divorce: The triumph of hope over experience! There is much evil and depravity in this all too fallible world, yet I remain hopeful for the future.
