To you, romance isn't about surprise trips. A companion that shows up when they say they will and acts consistently and reliably so you never doubt their affections or devotion to you.
You prefer solitude to an unpredictable companion because you don't want to wonder where they are or what they're doing.
You feel uneasy when forced out of your comfort zone. Routines serve a purpose. Because they work.
You want advance notice if your partner is taking you somewhere new.
Predictability doesn't bore you. Shows maturity. You want that in a relationship. You want a spouse who keeps their word and schedule.
A partner who will text you instantly to inform you of any plan changes. Although you like adventure, you don't want a wholly unexpected spouse.
Your wildest romances were fun but unhealthy. When you didn't know what your spouse would say or do, you felt like you didn't know them.
That path is never again desired. You prefer being alone to being with an unpredictable spouse since you want to share everything.
