Anonymous asked: What do you consider 'a catch' in a woman?

heartsways:

Intelligence and a sense of humor is a must.  One of the things I love most about stormpickle is that we can discuss things endlessly and the topics run the gamut from the ridiculous (Girls Aloud, for example) to the intense and serious.  She’s a really smart girl who has strong views and it’s always fun hearing them.  She makes me laugh, too, which I LOVE because as a “funny” person, you can often feel like the onus is on you to be amusing all the time.  So when I find funny people who genuinely make me laugh out loud, I tend to cling to them.  Plus, if you find someone interesting, you can always, ALWAYS find something to talk about.

Compassion is also really important.  I don’t know whether you’ve noticed, but I can be a *bit* needy sometimes (understatement of the year) so having a woman who understands that and handles it is perfect, really.

I could spend all day talking about this (but won’t, don’t worry) but what it comes down to for me is that a real “catch” is a woman I can be friends with as well as have a relationship with.  And in all the ways you match, the ways in which you are different are important, too.  Because when you argue - and all couples do - and the relationship part suffers, you HAVE to have something else as a bedrock.  If you genuinely like someone as a person, then it becomes easier to relate to them in a lot of ways and honestly, that’s what keeps us together, IMO.

and they don’t even know it…and you can’t actually explain it to them…
the way you feel their absence even while doing something you’ve never done with them before…like watching a movie and going:”I wish they were here to see this, I bet they’d like this..” yeah, it’s always the small stuff
