The sort of commitment and union you'll both want to create together will be quite similar to where you should head as a couple, which is very good news! This means your bond has a strong chance of lasting long-term, if that's what you're looking for. Even if this is destined to be a short-term affair, you'll be moving in the right direction together by focusing on your partnership needs -- on what you'd like to get out of your shared connection.
Are you looking for an exciting mental connection? Lots of shared passion? Tenderness and nurturing? Whatever it is you hope to get out of this relationship, work on creating it. That way, you'll have a strong clue as to the direction that's right for your development as a couple.
