A List of My Own

While browsing through sexydisaster30's blog today I came across her post The list again. It reminded me that I, too, have a list of requirements for any man I date. My list isn't nearly as long or thoughtful as hers, but it does stem from past experiences.

MY LIST

1. He must have a job. It doesn't have to be a good job, but he needs to have a source of income. If he doesn't have a job then there had better be a darn good reason...

2. He cannot live with his parents. I can deal with roommates, but I'm real uncomfortable with the idea of his parents walking in on us in the throws of passion!

3. He must have his own transportation. I don't run a taxi service.

4. No drug dealers. Too much drama.

5. He must be closer to my age than my parent's age. I realize that age is nothing but a number, but I just can't get around this one.

6. I would prefer if he wasn't a father. I love kids, but I don't care for all the hassle and drama of dealing with the ex - and it's unavoidable. Given the right situation and person, I can make an exception.

7. He must be educated. A handsome man is very nice to look at and stand next to, but there's so much more to life! I enjoy good conversation!

8. He must be a kind person.


Well, there you have it. I'm sure I could add more, but those are the basics.

Do you have a list? What does your say? Is it an iron-clad list of requirements, or are you willing to make exceptions?

By the way, do you know that it's sexydisaster30's birthday week? I highly recommend attending her party! Visit [post 331771] for more information and to leave her a birthday wish!

I think you have the start of a great list. I've made many list, only to go back and modify them from time to time. And when they really make me mad, I blog about them. LOL - - now guys I meet say "I hope I don't end up in your blog". LOL - - it's good to know they can read.

Good Luck Sweetie {=}

Yeh, its small ,but also based on past experianes
1. No drunks,to much drama and self pitty
2. Absolutly no drugs ,been there done that .......never again.
3.Must have job, Im done trying support someone in the fashion they wish become accostomed to.
4.Intelligent, theres some room to move on this one as I may not be the most inteligent person, but there is more to life than sex,and there needs to be more than that in a relationship.
5.RESPECT,I dont think I need to clarify this one.
I think I can adjust to just about any thing else, but who knows lifes not over yet ,ask again next year

Nice to meet you

Ah! I forgot one thing! #9 - He must be literate! Thanks for reminding me!!!

I think it's only natural (and smart) to revise your list from time to time - not based on your mood on that particular day, but because over time people change. What you want now may not hold true 30 years from now. Good point!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Quoting Wordsmith2004:
    1. Must have a joy to them/twinkle in her eye

    2. Must be able to handle a Batting cage fastball without constantly scurrying away like a bee just flew up her bra ("Ahhh broke a naaail!"

    3. Must be able to take a joke/annoyingly loveable pet names from yours truly (This is MUY IMPORTANTE...so IMPOTANTE I'm going into my Telemundo "Count Chocula" Spanish annoucer's voice )

    4. Must ocasionaly watch something other than American Idol or MTV.

    5. Must not be a "I hate everything in the world/life is a big lie black eyeliner wearin' I think about suicide for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Tori Amos is my God" goth type chick. (not to say Amos sucks...just can't be completely obsessed with her music, savvy? )

    6. Must take care of herself enough that I'm not gonna have indespherible ziplock baggies of what looks like white powder float up from my stopped up toilet and the FBI going through my garbage

    7. No gold diggers and/or a size queen though the music of Queen is perfectly legal in Wordy country

    8. Must be smart but not a smarty snob either

    9. Gottta have a good heart

    10. Being a closet dork/nerd/ecentric genius/artist is a huge plus!

    11. I like at least one cute physical quirk in all my potential womenfolks...a tiny third nipple, has a laugh like a crazy clown, snorts when she laughs, makes a cute noise when she sneezes/farts a promient nose, elf ears lol etc. Perfect swedish model types tend to frighten me into thinkin' it's finally "Judgement Day" and the rise of the Arnuuld machines or something

    12. Sarstic and competive out the arse!

    and lastly...

    13. She got to be able to deal with the things about moi that she'll likely never change. (I'll never be a Vegan unless I've suddenly gone completely insane in the membrane, I have no interest in being the surburban family man, and probably never will be a 9-5 steady type guy etcy etcy.)

    I think that about covers it...everything else is probably negotiable....err...probably lol
Very good list, and funny too! I'm particularly fond of #10 - closet nerd here! Or is that something everyone already knows and I just don't realize it? Hmmm...

Thank you for visiting!

Good list - got me to thinking about my own:

1) she must be employed - I think it's important for both people in a relationship to contribute so we're not financially dependant on the other.
2) she must be intelligent - I really want someone I can talk to and exchange ideas with - great conversation is sexy.
3) She must take care of herself - I'm not looking for physical perfection (lord knows I'm not in that category) but she must care about her appearance.
4) We should share some common interests - Not necessarily all of them, it'd be great to learn new things from someone but it'd be nice if there are some things we can do together.
5) she should be outgoing or at least willing to warm up to people. We can't exist for just each other - social contact outside of the relationship is important.
6) I'd prefer if she doesn't have kids. I don't want any but I understand that kids come first no matter what. It's hard enough as it is to get a relationship off the ground, having kids I think makes it that much more difficult.
7) she must love dogs. I have 2 fluffy ones. They're my kids.

There are probably a few more but those are the big ones!
