Am I just impossible to please, or what?

My 30th birthday is coming up (okay in about a year and a half, but close enough). I'm separating from my second husband. So I got to thinking... what would it really take for me to find happiness? I never realized just what a picky bitch I really am... until now. So here goes, this is my top ten list of what it would take to please me.

10. You gotta have a job. It doesn't have to be anything glorious. Just some kind of regular employment. Oh, and you have to actually show up at work and do your job too.

9. Use the money from your job to pay your bills. I don't want some wigged out credit card nut who will have to sell his soul and his left nut down the road to keep from being homeless.

8. Looks are not necessarily a top priority. But, if you are so fugly that when I wake up next to you I piss myself out of fear... it might not work out.

7. A sense of humor. That dark, brooding shit is overrated. Smile once in a while, alright?

6. You must have a car. Now by this I mean something to transport you from point a to point b. If your car is so polished that you can see your reflection in it... you need to get a fuckin life. And if you spend more on your car payment than on rent, it's a safe bet I won't ever be going back to your place (or inviting you to mine for that matter)

5. Which brings me to my next point. I understand that sometimes people move back in with the parents to get on their feet. Don't call me until you get you're own place. Not only do I want a man who can stand on his own feet, I want him to be standing fully erect.

4. Understand that I am THE woman in your life. I will not compete with your mother or that woman that you slept with 5 years ago but are really good "friends" with now. Not saying you have to cut ties, just remember where your priorities are.

3. Sex. Yes, shocking isn't it that this one didn't make the top of the list. I want it all... slow passion, crazy wild, and kinky rough. And you better believe I give as good as I get.

2. I need a man who can be my friend and companion. Someone that I can talk to and will actually respond. The whole talking to a brick wall game will do nothing but cause you to lose my interest fast. I want a best friend. I want to be the gal you can take to the pub and toss 'em back with the buddies. The woman that you can take anywhere and still have a blast. I will never be the chick who sits at home watching the clock. If you don't take me along... I'll find my own fun.

1. Love. Above all else I want the butterflies, I want someone that sees the incredible strong woman I am and just can't imagine life without me. I want someone that can tame me once and for all (well maybe not completely... after all that would be boring now wouldn't it).

So, how bout you... am i really that impossible to please?

I don't think you're being picky at all. I think that what you are asking for is pretty basic mature relationship stuff. I don't think that I could really respect a woman who didn't demand at least this much from me. Your thinking seems to be a bit ahead of your years, though. You know, that old "Boys don't mature as quickly as girls do" thing might be what's causing you some difficulty. You'll never get if youdon't ask. Good luck!

Mari, I know that I didn't really get my $#!* togeter until about 45. I'm 55 now, and nowhere near ready for bingo.

The reason I replied to your post in the first place is because I have a daughter about your age. She has echoed your thoughts on many occasions, so your post really hit close to home for me. I think that you and she and a lot of intelligent, mature younger women are faced with the same dilemma.

Age is a number. Who we are and where we are in life is much more important. I can really see my daughter married to a guy 20 years older. She's 32 going on 50. Good luck!

Hmmmm, now If I went through each one of these you posted I might actually pass one or two of your requirements. So of your top ten requirements if I pass 5 out of 10 do I get the job?
