You are a sensualist—you enjoy a relationship that starts slowly and lasts a long time, and that is the same way you feel about sex! You need certainty in a relationship, and if you have that feeling, you are at your romantic best. You enjoy sex on a raw level, and you may easily get hung up on the physical side of desire. Your partner needs to understand that you express your love in real, tangible ways—by fixing things, solving problems, being there. Your motto may as well be, “Actions speak louder than words.” Not all lovers will understand this, and some may wish you were more openly romantic. However, the ideal lover for you will take comfort in your endurance and reliability, appreciate the fact that you lay down solid foundations for a relationship, and understand your matter of fact approach to romance.
A dedicated partner is of utmost importance to you. You can be quite possessive, and downright jealous if uncertainty in a relationship prevails. Sex is an elemental force in your life, and you need a partner who is accessible. You appreciate solid, long-standing, and reliable relationships. Although somewhat cautious about entering new relationships, once you do decide, you are generally in it for the long haul. You feel most loved with physical proof of commitment. You work hard at making your relationships work on a physical and practical level. Some partners may find your approach to love overly practical—perhaps even conservative. You are most receptive to solid expressions of love that are tangible and easily measured. Similarly, you express your love and affection in ways that are rarely flowery or grand. You require, more than most, physical presence, steadiness, reliability, and comfort in your relationships. Once committed, you quickly become annoyed if your partner demands proof of your love. You might say, “I’m here, aren’t I?” Physical expressions of affection and commitment are most appreciated, and you may view flowery romance and excitement as superfluous or even superficial.
