From experience I would have to say, I would want the opposite sex to KNOW .... (not necessarily the love of my life as he would already have worked this all out for himself):
I enjoy being treated like a lady (good language, doors, manners, kindness)
I insist on being independent (don't assume you have to think for me or do everything for me) - wait for me to ask (except for the opening doors and offering to help with heavy objects needing lifting etc.) .
Wait for an invitation to my home, or ask if I'd like your company! Do NOT invite yourself over. This is basic respect for another person's personal space and sanctuary. If and when we decide to live together it is then your place too, but not until then.
Do expect me to still have some life without your knowledge.... Over-possessiveness and jealousy is like Hemlock to a relationship.
Live and keep yourself and your place in order, otherwise better invest in some classes or a maid!! Very few women want to become your "maid" or be your "mother" .
A good kiss starts at the base of the neck works its way to the lips and is soft and slow but not sloppy or slurpy or aggressive ..
A good sense of humour and the ability to make each other laugh is a must for a healthy relationship ... and good humour does not include: sarcasm, slapstick or mean humour at another's expense.
Take a lady out, keep the romance alive and stay interested in life and each other's needs and all will be well.
