The List

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:

  • Nice
  • Respectful
  • Funny
  • Dorky/Geeky/Nerdy
  • 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!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!

  1. The weather has been crazy in Tennessee for about the last year, I think. Sheesh! It seems like it went from freezing to hot, with no in between.

    I’m envious of your upcoming New York trip. That will be SO FUN. 🙂

  2. Yes, the weather here is crazy! I think spring has lasted for less than a week and now we are starting on summer already.New York has to be one of my favorite places to visit and I still haven’t seen all of it. This time I am planning on getting a City Pass and making sure I hit all the museums. And it will be nice since I will be on my own for the first part, so I won’t have to worry about making sure a friend isn’t stuck seeing things that they are not interested in. And once The Queen (Marti) is there, we can hit up 5th Avenue. She can shop with the best of them!
