• Society's preoccupation with "passionate love"
  • Accepting my lack of passion (I don't generally have emotions that are that intense)
  • More focus on commitment (I never thought I would be the one wanting stability, but I want someone I can rely on). It is something I expected passion to take care of in the past. 
  • Looking for people who can truly be emotionally intimate (this is the most important aspect for me)
  • People who can trust and that I can trust
