You need a partner in love who takes the relationship as seriously as you do, and you're willing to give up a little fun and romance in favor of qualities like reliability and security. Security is one of your deepest needs in a long-term, committed love affair, so you'll match up best with someone you can trust on a variety of levels: someone whom you know will always work hard and pay the bills on time, and whom you can trust to be faithful to you. Why the need for security?
Deep down, you are afraid of being betrayed; for this reason, emotional security is just as important to you as financial. Sometimes, though, you overlook it, or you try to make material security function as a stand-in for the emotional variety. You might end up with a lover who's a bit emotionally aloof, or who works so hard that they don't have much time left over for you or the relationship. But while this could be a bit of a lonely existence for you, you much prefer it to the alternative, as you see it -- a relationship with someone who might be a lot of fun, but whom you basically can't trust. For you, steady and dependable is far more attractive than wildly exciting and romantic but unstable.
