I get questions from time to time of what do I want in a mate and the response from those hearing it is, “Really? That’s all? You are not asking for much.” Yep, I am kind of easy like that. Of course, my list of qualities was much longer when I was younger but hey, after a couple of heartbreaks, you start to find yourself whittling the list down to the basics.
So here is my list:
- Bonus if he dresses preppy/classic but I have had Ken doll boyfriends before, so I can dress them
- Willing to go to church
- Wants to get married
- More importantly, wants to marry me
- Wants kids
That is it in a nutshell. I have a type, I can’t help it. It is what I am attracted to but Stacey’s husband did have a request the last time I was in Nashville, he must have hair. I don’t mind either way though.
The guy that comes into my life needs to understand I am not perfect, quite silly, burp often and that I have the humor of an adolescent boy. I can’t help it. My friend Ethan destroyed my brain growing up, so I do giggle at gutter humor. I like to have me time (reading and watching tv is my thing), spend time with friends and cook. So he needn’t not worry about his figure. I need to get into shape, so if that guy was willing to walk with me and coax me into jogging from time to time, then that is a bonus for me. I also want someone who isn’t afraid of trying new things, food or traveling but I think if I could get those basics from the list, the rest will work itself out.
Oh, while I am a girly girl, I love football but not the Tennessee Vols. Sorry, I can’t handle the orange and white. Had too much of that growing up. But I can bend a bit on that, just don’t expect me to go to a game. Been there, done that and I thought I was going to have to go take a long, hot shower to get the smell off. It’s my thing, hating Tennessee.
So there you have it, I used to have a much longer list, with details and all but if I could come home to a loving mate, who laughs with me and at me, understands that sometimes I will be grouchy and that my cat will be hogging the bed, please apply or send your applicants my way. I just want someone to share my life with and to grow old together. And the upside, when he starts to lose his hearing he won’t hear me burping all the time!
