what if you just enjoy someone else's company, both physically and mentally?

That's what I'm saying, all I'm looking for is for someone who I can hang out with and talk to sometimes, have sex with, and is capable of respecting my independence and solitude. Likewise I would do the same for them.
However it seems that a lot of girls that I know have preconceived notions on what a relationship should be like, and expectations of what 'the man' should do and what 'the woman' should do.
Maybe I should just hang out with different people...
