<insert HeartlandGirl's response here>

It's about love, trust, commitment, faith, shared goals, shared interests, putting each other first, being best friends, understanding, allowing him (or me) to take off alone for some time to be alone, and communication. That all adds up to Emotional Security for me.




And he's hot!

So, many of you would consider a relatioship w/o sex healthy?
In my opinion, the absense of sex in a relationship is a big sign something is wrong.

emotional security and not fighting.

security is all fine and dandy until all you want to do is beat them over the head with a big stick.

Just because it isn't mentioned doesn't mean it is not going on.

The question in the poll has to do w/ priorities for a good long term relationship. I think if there are sexual issues, that indicates problems in the emotional area, unless it's a medical problem or whatever..

I think if sex is the most important aspect of someone's long term relationship or marriage, that is a big sign something is wrong, but that is just my personal opinion.

Well, the first time I saw my GF I wasn't thinking "boy, I'd sure like to trust her!" I was having dirty thoughts, which happened to work out as the other stuff fell in place.

Sex is an expression of love in a marriage - the relationship cannot be based on or sustained with sex. Love, trust, commitment, faith, shared goals, shared interests, putting each other first, being best friends, understanding (Martha's list) leads to great sex.

If all single women who are looking could find a man like nbcrusader (because he's already taken) I think they'd all be very happy

I mean that sincerely

I voted for sexual compatibility. Because I had all the rest, but something about our sex life never quite meshed. Sometimes it was great (for a little while) but then would not be again. I had all the rest. My best friend, the chemistry, everything. Now, after 6 years of marriage we're seperated.

It shore do!

But seriously, without feeling secure and loved, the sex will be worthless and hollow.

Sometimes in a longterm relationship all you want is worthless and hollow sex.
