There is no better city in the world to choose for a festive getaway than Stockholm in Sweden.
At this time of year its covered in a healthy blanket of white sparkling snow. The city which dates back to the 12th Century is simply beautiful. Known affectionally as the 'Venice of the North,' it’s the jewel in the crown of the Nordic lands.
Famous for its museums, universities and art galleries, Stockholm is the most populated city in the region attracting a whooping 11 million visitors in 2013 alone. Picture perfect with the back drop of it's imposing 12th and 13th century architecture, Stockholm is the ideal destination for romantic couples, festive shopping, cultural escapes or just fun with the family.
Stockholm at this time of the year is especially special because the snow-globe setting is sure to warm the coldest of moods.
From visiting a Christmas market to enjoying some glogg and ginger bread, bathing under the glow of the beautiful festive decorations, to shopping in its narrow shopping streets, to enjoying a well deserved drink and meal at a bar or restaurant, Stockholm ticks all the boxes and will bring a smile to any face.
Stockholm is easily accessible on foot, bus, train and boat. Taking a reasonable two hours twenty minutes to get there by plane from the UK, and at the equally reasonable price of about £195 there and back, there really is no excuse not to visit Stockholm, even if you have or haven’t been already.
With over 1000 restaurants, 100 museums, a vibrant art scene and distinguished theatres, Stockholm is a truly wonderful city to visit. Spread across 14 islands, Stockholm's most popular region, it's old town is accessible by bridge, walking over the often frozen Lake Mälaren which meets the Baltic Sea in the South East region of the country.

With temperatures at Christmas well below freezing and snowing falling on any given day, it'll bring a smile to your face when you walk along their commercial shopping areas free from snow due to their under pavement heating, while walking further afield wading knee deep in crisp sparkling snow freshly fallen.
Night-clubs, restaurants, cinemas, cafes, casinos, you name it, you'll find it in Stockholm. Watching men fish salmon from the river, to marvelling at the royal architecture, Christmas lights, smells and sounds; Stockholm holds a certain endearment which will surely bring you festive cheer.

AN OPEN LETTER TO WARREN MORGAN: Please refund £719 fine or provide a two bedroom council flat for my sister and I....
Tuesday 24 November 2015
|Cllr Warren Morgan - Labour Council Leader|
As the leader of Brighton’s Labour Party and as such, the leader of the Council, I wish to bring to your attention an injustice and moral atrocity which I pray you can resolve for me.
I’ve been forced to pay £719.00 to get our family car returned; towed away because I hadn’t obtained the necessary parking permit.
Please allow me to put what happened into perspective. The family car, (a silver Renault Scenic Registration No' LV03 RYM) which is registered in my name but used by my ex-partner, is yearly insured, MOT’d and whose car tax of £260 is paid yearly.
A few years ago I received a letter asking for my opinion of parking permits being issued across the Moulsecoomb area in light of the vehicle congestion of Brighton and Hove Albion fans parking in residential streets on match days.
I replied, “No,” that I’m not in favour, but my opinion was evidently dismissed because weeks later it was degreed by Brighton & Hove City Council that all resident’s in Moulsecoomb must get parking permits.
I filled out the necessary form and took it down to my local resident’s office to get the necessary parking permit.
It was explained that I never had the appropriate paper and that I must obtain a V50 to complete the requirements and get the permit.
I confess I didn't understand what they required and got back to life. Earning a living, raising children, maintaining the house, keeping healthy and doing the other 101 things people do necessary to lead a law abiding existence.
So you can imagine my surprise when within weeks I got a parking ticket on my vehicle, when it was parked outside my home, fully insured, MOT’d and taxed.
I wrote to the parking enforcement team in Brighton explaining the circumstances and they deemed my circumstances reasonable and dismissed the parking charge forthwith.
Again, a few weeks later another parking ticket was issued against me.
Intent in resolving the matter I contacted the parking department by phone and letter explaining my difficultly in understanding what paperwork was required.
Perhaps it's because I’m dyslexic or perhaps it's because I’m mentally ill, but I simply didn't understand what a V50 was and having asked for help, none was forth-coming.
I begged my ex-partner for assistance but she said “no” with the excuse, “Everything to do with the car is your problem.”
I begged officials from Brighton’s parking enforcement team to come to my home and help me find the necessary paperwork, but they instead insisted I must visit their offices at Hove Town Hall on the weekend to resolve the matter.
I simply didn't have time to do so.
- I was in the middle of a parliamentary political campaign as the prospective MP for Brighton Kemptown and was under considerable stress and strain having been attacked at my election office in Peacehaven, and arrested by Sussex Police when I called for help.
- I was under stress and strain from my ex-partner as our relationship steadily deteriorated.
- I was under stress and strain with an impending mental illness manifesting in the belief that our Government are out to kill us through false flag events such as 7/7 and the Woolwich terrorist attacks.
READ MORE: SUSSEX POLICE ARE THE CRIMINALS.
All this was confounded further by the regular issuing of parking tickets upon a vehicle which was legally parked outside my property, fully insured, MOT’d and taxed.
The continuing harassment I was receiving made my feel suicidal. On one night in particular I walked to a cliff’s edge in Peacehaven with the intent of ending my life. It was only for the love of my children that I stepped back from the edge.
I am a law abiding citizen who works my hardest to provide for my children. I maintain the family car, ensuring it’s MOT’d, insured and taxed and all I got in return was a parking ticket every match day.
Before I knew it I was drowning in bureaucracy. I had nowhere to turn. My ex-partner said it was my problem and the parking enforcement office simply carried on issuing the tickets without understanding my predicament.
I simply didn't understand what a V50 was and how to get it. Suffice to say I eventually took it onto myself and rang the DVLA. They didn't know what a V50 was either but explained a V5 was a document which declared who the owner of the vehicle was. I explained that I hadn't got a V5 and asked for a replacement. They confirmed the vehicle was registered in my name and that a replacement V5 would cost £20.
I had reached the end of my tether. Unable to afford £20 and unable to afford or address the mounting balance of the parking charges against me, I fell into depression which continues today.
Bringing the situation up to the present, I was forced to return to the family home because the campaign office in Peacehaven in which I was living, was fraudulently occupied by criminals in partnership with the local authority and Sussex Police.
READ MORE: I'M BROKE, HOMELESS AND PISSED OFF.
The family home is a council house registered in my name but like the family vehicle, is predominately used by my ex-partner and children. I tried to get the tenancy signed over to my ex-partner but was unable to because doing so would make me ’intentionally homeless’ and unable to be housed by the Council.
My ex-partner is desperate for me to move out and to eventually sign over the tenancy to her, allowing her to get on with her life without any disruption to the children's life and schooling.
The £719.00 which I was forced to pay to get our car back was ear-marked for a deposit for a new flat for myself and sister, Emma Taylor.
Emma Taylor was made homeless in 2013 following a fire at 3 Widdicoombe Road in Mouslecoomb. Police originally accused her of arson which meant she was evicted by the Housing Association, becoming intentionally homeless and forced to sleep on the streets.
Since then Emma was housed at St Patrick’s hostel but has since been evicted and has been homeless and sleeping rough since July 2015.
The £719.00 was ear-marked for getting a flat in which my sister and I could share. Its worthy of note that we are both Brightonian, born and breed.
I now find myself back to square one, through no fault of my own.
- My sister’s girlfriend froze to death while sleeping rough on a shop’s doorway on Boxing Day 2013.
- My sister is presently sleeping rough in doorways now and I fear she is liable to die due to the cold weather we are presently experiencing.
Through no fault of my own I have been forced to spend £719.00 to recover a vehicle which is fully insured, MOT’d and car taxed, legally parked outside my front door.
I had no notice that I had broken any laws by not having a parking permit... What law have I broken by not having a parking permit?
I took all reasonably steps to acquire the necessary parking permit. I made numerous telephone calls at my own expense and time and I wrote a number of letters explaining my situation and difficulties in understanding what was required.
I explained my situation at every turn and on a number of occasions those parking tickets were dismissed in light of the difficulties I was experiencing.
I feel gravely aggrieved and harassed by Brighton & Hove's City Council’s parking enforcement team. I feel suicidal and depressed that I’ve been forced to spend my savings paying for a fraudulent charge which on moral grounds is null and void.
What laws have I broken and what notice was I given that my vehicle was to be towed away? Where is the court judgement which justifies this?
Nothing has been stated in Law and as such I consider the action of towing away the vehicle and impounding it, unlawful, illegal and immoral.
- My sister is sleeping rough on the streets.
- My ex-partner is in distress because I am living at the family home.
- My children are in distress having to experience the tension between their warring parents.
- And I’m depressed and suicidal because I am back to square one, having worked so hard to save money to get a flat for myself and sister.
Warren Morgan, I am applying to you directly to resolve this matter.
I am making you directly responsible to resolve this matter by either refunding the £719.00 spent on recovering the family car or alternatively I’m making you directly responsible to resolve this matter by providing a two bedroom council flat for my sister and I.
This is deadly serious Sir. I am at the end of my tether and while jumping over the edge of the cliff is no longer an option, knocking on the asylum’s front door is.
In the same manner you publicised an open letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, I too am making this letter public, demonstrating my desperation to resolve this matter with urgency.
Please refund the £719.00 or provide a two bedroom council flat for my sister and I....

Fantasist Matt Taylor, claiming to be the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner has publicly declared that if elected the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner in 2016, he would sack the Chief Constable of Sussex Police force Giles York with immediate effect.
Labelled a “self serving snake” and “court jester” by Nailtown Slim aka Snerper, Matt Taylor, once considered a leading writer in the alternative media has come under sustained criticism for publicly deriding the work of granddad Chris Spivey, himself recently found guilty of harassment against the family of murdered solider Lee Rigby in a Chelmsford court last month.
|Winner of the Short Amateur Film Category|
Winner of the short amateur film category at the recent Bases International Film Festival, Matt Taylor has been condemned as a “dreamer” who will “never make it” following his very public spat with the leading figures of the Alternative Media, who in Matt’s opinion have failed to act positively towards the Hampstead Case.
Speaking from his padded cell somewhere in England, Matt Taylor complains like the spoilt baby he is, “We should be singing from the same song sheet but we aren't and as a result, the kids are being abandoned to the satanists controlling the world.”
Clearly deranged, Matt Taylor, editor of the failing news agency Guerrilla Democracy News, has come under renewed ridicule for claiming a UFO caused the recent Shoreham air-show crash and that the famous crime novelist Peter James is a serial killer.
As Nailtown Slim writes on Chris Spivey's comment section:
|Nailtown Slim aka Snerper|
Re-affirmed by members of Spivey's inner team and supporters, Matt Taylor's standing in the Alternative Media has roundly been debased and thrashed.
“Don’t worry about what Matt says Nailtown, he has thrown his toys out of the pram because Chris hasn’t covered a certain subject, and he feels he deserves answers, but doesn’t have the time to do his own research…..Facepalm. Funnily enough, his recent comments have disappeared from the fb page. Not down to me either, may I add xx”
“No problems nailtown slim. Matt IS a strange man. Reading obviously not one of the prick’s strong points. He’s a prick, but not a very impressive one.”
“Very strange. Matt put me on to Chris’s site in the first place. I understand Matt has political ambitions, so, maybe, the worm has turned….I hope not, I like Matt.”
THE PRODIGAL SON RETURNS.
A broken man, destitute and homeless, Matt Taylor attempts vainly to maintain his dignity in face of the sustained onslaught by Nailtown Slim against his character and reputation.
Nailtown Slim writes following Matt Taylor's recent comment on Spivey's site with reference The Shoreham Plane Crash Part 1:
“So, the prodigal son returns, bring on the fatted calf, do it quickly though, before he fucks off again! Who actually voted you into being this all powerful shadow police crime commissioner? Was there an actual vote for you to take up this post? or did you just make up the position for yourself? Is there an oath you had to take?, or any talk of a salary from any ‘official’ body? In case you might be misled, I’ll spell it out Matt, I don’t like you, I certainly don’t trust you, you flit from hating the admin team on here, to creeping and arse licking around them, and I’ll tell you straight, I never mince my words, I’ve given you the benefit of the doubt before, but now I think you’re a snake in the grass!
I think you’ve hitched yourself to this Shoreham thing because you’re trying to get more public recognition by riding on the back of this site! When you thought Chris was going down you publicly distanced yourself from this site, the saying ‘a friend in need is a friend indeed’ doesn’t apply to you obviously! As you well know, I’ve told you before that you will nick anyone’s theories because you’re a lazy fucker that can’t be bothered to put himself out by doing his own research! When the time suits you, you’ll be jumping ship again, and bad mouthing everyone on here! I’ve had my say, and time will certainly show you for what you really are!”
To which Matt Taylor responses in tears and a broken spirit:
“No one voted me to become the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner, and while I may like to believe I’m “all powerful” I’m far from it.
Having stood in the 2012 Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner elections, I created the office of Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner to ensure an added layer of public scrutiny existed which held the elected SPCC to account. It's lucky I did to, because since then at least 6 members of the public have contacted me with their stories of police corruption which suggest Katy Bourne has failed in her duty to hold the Chief Constable to account.
Let's be quite clear; I do this work voluntarily and have taken no oath. Unlike Katy Bourne who is paid £85,000 a year from the public purse, and who has taken an oath to hold the Chief Constable to account and who provably has failed to do so.
In my capacity as Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner I have done more than anyone in Sussex to expose the corruption that runs deep within Sussex Police.”
READ MORE: SHADOW SUSSEX POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER.
In response to allegations of being “a snake in the grass” and “hitching” himself on Spivey's research, Matt Taylor answers in defiance.
“I have been a staunch supporter of Chris Spivey since I heard of him in 2012. I have since gone on to support him in anyway I can, and was the only Parliamentary Candidate in the 2015 General election who publicly defended him against his harassment charges against Lee Rigby’s family.
I begrudge being called a “snake in the grass” and “a lazy fucker who can't be bothered to put himself out by doing his own research” because it simply isn't true.
I’ve uncovered very serious cases of police corruption in my capacity as the Shadow Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner and have helped people along the way who didn’t get help from any where else. As the editor of Guerrilla Democracy News, I’ve bravely put myself in the firing line of the Dark Forces who rule this realm by exposing the crimes of Queen and country and have been the leading voice in reviving the memory of King Arthur II and promoting King John Wanoa from New Zealand as an alternative Monarch to fill the vacuum of the fake Windsor royal family.
I’m proud to have put forward solutions to our world’s problems rather than just moaning about them. No one else promotes Moai Tidal energy as I do. No promotes King John Wanoa’s new world economy of £970 million trillion trillion as I do, and no one promotes Michael Reynold inspired Earth Ships, and Rick Simpson oil (the leading cure for cancer) as I do.
Nailtown Slim aka Snerper can hate me all he wants, the bottom line is that I have no idea who he is, and have never heard of him until someone pointed out he had mentioned me on Chris Spivey’s comment page.”
“I APOLOGISE FOR MY BEHAVIOUR, I HAVE NO EXCUSE.”
Having apologised for his behaviour to Chris Spivey, following Spivey’s latest expose of the Shoreham air-show crash, to which Lisa Pea (an administrator of Spivey Facebook page) responded kindly with:
“Oh bless you Matt, It’s ok, I forgive you, thankyou so much for publicly acknowledging your extreme dickheady behaviour. Your Ann Widdicombe article, was top notch old fella and instrumental to getting it out a little further, good show :) mwahhhh x”
He confronted Nailtown Slim's hostility towards him on Google+ with the message:
“You’ve got me wrong. I’m my own man in no one’s pocket. You can make all the allegations you want, but from the looks of it, no one is bothered or listening.”
To which Nailtown Slim replied with venom:
“No time for you Matt, you're a self serving snake who'd bite anyone to get himself noticed! At least Chris is really his own man, writes his own theories and doesn't borrow everyone else's! I won't be following your bullshit posts anymore, any further messages from you will be totally ignored, you are a dreamer who'll never make it, after all, look how long you've been trying! Such bullshit stuff like Shoreham air disaster, is Peter James a serial killer? you really are the 'Court Jester' aren't you?”
With an awful lot more to say about Matt Taylor littered across the web, take for example Nailtown Slims comment below:
“Matt Taylor was gloating about Ann Widercunt, on google+, I think Matt has turned, I honestly think that in desperation for fame and riches, he’s ‘Taken the Queen’s Shilling’! What still bothers me is how a soldier who went AWOL, then got arrested after being on the run, still managed to become a military policeman? It would be like asking one of the great train robbers to look after your 5 million quid lottery winnings for you! And also it shows me at any rate, the type of geezer he is to want to be in that military police career in the first place! He advertises himself on some of his websites as a bodyguard type escort and driver, U.K. or Continental driving, a life coach, a debt buster, life casting, spiritual guidance, speech writer, video director and producer, all this and he still manages to do some agency work! I.E. = pot washer / cleaner / barman!”
It would seem Nailtown Slim’s “hate” obsession with Matt Taylor is far from over.
“I believe that no man has ever set foot on the moon, but Matt certainly lives on a different planet to the rest of us! I’ve checked his posts when there was a full moon too, I think the word LUNATIC was well coined, he does go off on weird tangents, that’s a certainty! Brighton may be a city, but it’s also a small town as far as the rumour mill is concerned and it doesn’t take long for certain opinions on people’s tall stories to circulate! I really thought Hans Christian Anderson had died years ago! :=D”
Mind you Nailtown Slim isn't the only one who likes to waste their time talking about him. Take Wiggins for example:
“Matt has really got the ‘sour grapes’ bug now, he goes on about no one donating to him, he says he’s so desperate now he has to work as part time agency cleaner, dishwasher and barman, because he only gets £2.00 a month donated by A. SMITH ! He says he’s now split up with his family and homeless, but hopeful of getting an interview soon as a speech writer! When you jump on and off all and sundry bandwagons, write such bollocks as ‘UFO causes Shoreham air crash’ then try to sell a book of short stories about your life, with chapters on shitting your underpants in Washington D.C., working as a male escort, getting the highest score in a military police exam, only to be awarded the lowest score and ridiculed in front of the other trainee military police in his class! You’ve either reached an all time low, or badly need help from an understanding doctor! He deserted from the army at one stage and went on the run with his disabled mum after his drunken lesbian sister set fire to the family home here in Brighton. They ran off to Paris and Amsterdam, before finally being arrested on a Scottish island! All this is what he’s written in his blogs over the last few months, his words, not mine! He has changed so much since I first knew him, I certainly wouldn’t want him writing any speeches for me, he’d be better writing for Hollywood fantasy blockbuster movies! He has got political ambitions and told me recently that he gave himself twenty years to become a ‘SOMEONE’ that was eighteen years ago, so he has two years left and is becoming increasing more desperate! In his ‘Mathew’s world of websites’ he has sixteen websites promoting himself on all fronts, very sad, I genuinely liked him too, but over the last couple of years he’s really lost the plot, or been turned, with promises of ‘fame or fortune’! He has now turned on Chris and this site, this can easily be judged by his latest post on google+, so, fuck him!
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and we have to concede that fact, otherwise we’d all be as bad as the cunts who rule the world, but his opinions change with the wind, he’s totally ME, ME, ME in everything he says now and this I’m sure is all down to money and lack of donations that he keeps harping on about! It really is a shame that it’s all gone ‘tits up’ for him with his family and home life, but a lot of other people, even some on here, have similar problems and get through them eventually. Before I met my wife I’m married to now I kipped in an allotment shed for weeks until I found somewhere to live, thirty five years later I can laugh about it now but at the time it really was dire straits for me! I hold no animosity for Matt, but have decided that he’s no longer worth the effort of following him!”
While Paul, has clearly got Matt Taylor mixed up with another Matt Taylor from Brighton:
“Matty washing dishes? Lmfao. Only a couple of years ago he was “Official Photographer” for most, if not all of Brighton’s main clubs….bit of a pain in the arse with all his gob, but he got by l guess. Although lm guessing wrong here, he clearly didn’t get by did he. See, when you originate from Brighton (as Nailtown knows) you get to know one person, who knows another person if you know what l mean, you gotta watch the old spiel, it’s a case of “I thought you said……” I don’t wish the little guy any harm though!”

As someone with high self-confidence, you feel quite comfortable interacting with other people. Indeed, you find the company of others very stimulating and enjoy meeting new people. Your relaxed demeanor in groups makes people around you comfortable too. Perhaps because you feel comfortable talking about yourself, others tend to enjoy being around you and perceive you as socially competent.
The confidence that helps you feel comfortable talking to people also spills into your own personal beliefs about yourself. Although you have several strengths, it’s likely that you also acknowledge and accept your weaknesses. But unlike some people, you take full responsibility for your actions—you rarely regret things you’ve done in the past and are not embarrassed easily.
Perhaps the defining feature that sets you apart from most people is the exceptionally high standards that you set for yourself. Your competence in social gatherings as well as at work should provide ample evidence for this. With these characteristics, it’s very likely that people come to you for advice and generally think of you as someone with leader-like qualities.
As someone who is oriented to familial matters, you value the company of family-members and domestic life. If you have children already, you enjoy spending time with them very much and work hard to be a good parent. If you don’t have children, you very much desire having children in the future. And your preference for cooking and entertaining guests at home will likely ease the transition into parenthood.
You take pride in maintaining and cultivating a healthy family and work hard to achieve this. This natural tendency is easily illustrated by your preference for doing things around the house as opposed to going out to clubs and restaurants.
What really sets you apart from people that are low in family orientation is that you know how to manage your frustrations and work well on your own. This means that you are well-equipped to manage a family without letting all the work that is involved wear you down. However, as someone with strong family values, all the work that is involved in maintaining a tidy home and well-stocked kitchen might occasionally make it difficult for you to finish everything that you need to do.
The self-control personality dimension captures the way in which a person regulates and directs him or herself. Being moderate in self-control can be both good and bad. People may be compelled to follow their intuitions and give in to their temptations, and your degree of self-control means that this may happen occasionally. This can be good in situations where focus and control are very important.
However, on certain occasions being able to give in to one’s temptations can be fun and even healthy (as long as it’s in moderation).
As someone who exerts a moderate amount of control of your actions, you may find that you exert too much stress on yourself sometimes. For example, you may be inclined to take more responsibility on projects, which may not always be necessary. This might be because you have a slight tendency to focus on the details and feel as though others may not be able to do as good of a job noticing such details as yourself. You might find it difficult to let others do certain jobs, and as a result, increase your own workload and stress level.
Having moderate self-control is generally a good thing. Although you have good control over your impulses, you also take notice of your emotions and sometimes take them into account while making decisions. This can be good when making important decisions because you acknowledge that your underlying feelings may be trying to tell you something important.
As someone high in openness, you have a strong appreciation for beauty, both in art and nature. Indeed, it’s likely that you are easily absorbed in music and art, as well as natural phenomena. Another aspect of your openness is your emotional insight; that is, you probably have good access to and awareness of your own emotions.
Another aspect of the openness dimension is the tendency to think about abstract concepts and ideas. This thinking style may take the form of artistic and metaphorical use of language, and/or music composition or performance. Thus, it is likely that, either in your work or spare time, you enjoy activities that get your “creative juices” flowing.
Your tendency to be open-minded can have advantages and disadvantages. For instance, when there are no clear rules about how to approach a particular problem, your openness makes it easier for you to identify new ways to solve problems that might not be very obvious to people that are not as open as you are. In contrast, you may be bored easily in situations that lack high amounts of intellectual stimulation. In such cases, you might have difficulty excelling on projects that do not provide much stimulation or require much creative thinking.
Easygoingness refers to one's ability to relax. Based on your score, you appear to “take things as they come” and enjoy having a good time. However, being high in easygoingness also has the potential to produce stress in a number of ways. For example, you may find it difficult to complete tasks thoroughly and efficiently. In this way, being high in easygoingness cannot only make your life difficult, but also the lives of the people around you. Another potential problem with being too high in easygoingness is that it can provide you with gratification in the short-term, but in the long-term provide undesirable consequences.
High easygoingness, even when not seriously destructive, may also diminish your effectiveness at work, for example. You may find it aversive and difficult to put in all the effort that may sometimes be needed to effectively accomplish certain tasks. For this reason, your colleagues might view you as forgetful and unfocused.
How does your personality affect your love life?
With your strong degree of self-confidence, it’s no surprise that you get along well with most people. Indeed, it’s self-confidence that allows people to feel comfortable interacting with others without feeling insecure and vulnerable. For this reason, you shouldn’t have much difficulty in romance, at least not initially. Your social skills will likely help relieve any anxiety your romantic partners might have on those first few dates. However, over time, the high standards that you have for yourself could potentially frustrate your partner.
Given how much you value family life, you probably get along best with people who share your values and beliefs. In fact, it’s likely that you maintain close connections with members of your immediate and distant family. For this reason, you would probably be most satisfied in a romantic relationship with someone who also values domestic life.
Being in a relationship with someone who enjoys going out to parties and staying-up late at night might be fun, at least initially; yet it’s likely that you will find this tiring over time. Thus, it might be easier and more satisfying for you to develop a long-lasting relationship with a person who also enjoys spending time at home and desires starting a family.
You may find it difficult to get along well with people that are too uptight or too impulsive. For this reason, you would probably be most satisfied in a romantic relationship with someone who also has a good degree of self-control. Being in a relationship with someone who has too much might be frustrating because that person might find it difficult to relax; whereas being in a relationship with someone who does not have enough self-control could be frustrating because that person may not always take your thoughts and feelings into account when making decisions. Thus, it might be easiest and most satisfying for you to develop a long-lasting relationship with a person who is equally capable of regulating his/her urges, but who also knows how to relax from time to time.
Your openness probably makes it easy for you to respect and appreciate people that are different from you. However, when it comes to romantic relationships, your openness might make it difficult for you to tolerate people that cannot appreciate diversity as much as you. Therefore, you may be happiest in serious relationships with people that share your open-mindedness. But, your openness might occasionally cause a certain degree of dependency on your end because you may be so open that you easily adopt the preferences and habits of your partners and gradually relinquish things that make you so unique.
