54 to 1 -- and the score is tied...!

sexydisaster30 posted a list on her blog {use the link to see the introduction, her list, and the comments} of the things that she wants, expects, and demands in a man; these things are non-negotiable for her. There are 54 things on her list. She wanted to know what was on our list, or if we didn't have one to make one. She seems to have found someone she truly believes will fit that list, at the age of 31 and still single. I'm happy for her, and I'm glad it's worked for her finally.

My reply to her was this:

Unlike my postings usually, my personal list is short: He must truly love me and know what that means.
*******
I believe in 'because of and in spite of'. I didn't 'settle' in my second marriage. I didn't 'settle' with my first 'real' relationship after he died. I may have 'lost' J for now or for forever as a lover and a partner, where our road parted in his current journey today. I have not lost my friend. I'm not changing my list. It doesn't need one more thing added to it.

I like the short version! "he must truly love me" Love can not be explained how it is felt!
I don't think I could express the feeling in a million words.

Thanks, both of you; I always appreciate someone agreeing with me, of course. I am happy for her, but in a way a bit surprised. That's an awfully long, detailed list to have for anything, much less something so personal {as in linked to someone's personality}. If that is what she wants and what she needs, who am I to say. On the other hand {as usual, playing devil's advocate, for myself this time}, I meant exactly what I said. Perspective and simplicity; my two keywords for a while.
