Trevor and Jason's 'Thing Wot's Sort Of Like An Advent Calendar', #24
24.) What might your character’s ideal romantic partner be?

Trevor has been down that road enough times by now to recognise that there isn't any such thing, particularly for someone in his situation; he's reached the point where mostly what he hopes for is someone who's enough of a grownup to cope with their own issues whilst giving him the space to deal with his own. (In practice this has translated into a couple of marriages that lasted, a couple where there was a bowing-out with varying degrees of grace when matters started getting into "and he's your... what, exactly?" territory, and a number of attachments of a so long as this is working for the both of us character, which he's actually come to prefer now that it's easier to be more above-board about sexual friendships.) He tends to be someone who meets many of his emotional needs with a few close male friends anyway, so he's never felt particularly compelled to try to fit a female partner into the 'central repository of ALL MY FEELINGS EVER' trap in the first place.

Jason has that little issue of not being particularly motivated by sex for most of the year and then all of a sudden being extremely motivated for a little while, so "someone who can live with that" is at the top of his list. (He might be happy with another were who's on a similar cycle, or just someone understanding of the situation.) When he is in the market for companionship he tends to go for a distinct type: confident of themselves and socially forward... come to think of it, he seems to end up dating a lot of Older Women.

As I was about to go to sleep, I just had a thought that I had to get back online for: A few close male friends, but female partners for sexual relationships? Oh my god, Trevor is John Watson.
