Being a survivor doesn't mean being strong - it's telling people when you need a meal or a ride, company, whatever.

I want someone that I can have fun with and laugh with. I love to laugh, and I'm really sarcastic, so it's important that she can take a joke. I think if you are going to be with someone for a while, you really need someone you can let loose with and let go of all the stress of the day.
