What do you want, and a sprinkle of gratitude.

So, yeah, I've been single for a LONG time.  Not intentionally.  There were extenuating circumstances (I was scared of Shelby's father) that prevented me from even trying really. 

Things have changed.  No he hasn't changed.  I have. I am now ready to test the waters.  I know that I am worthy of being loved.  For some that's a "given", for me, eh not really.  Yeah, we all have issues/baggage.  Mine was pretty heavy for a long time.  Now that I've lost FIFTY POUNDS (woo hoo!) I'm starting to feel better about my appearance (I didn't say my issues were all gone - LOL).

I've been thinking about what kind of man I think I would like to spend time with.  Tell me if I'm expecting too much:

Kind
Compassionate
Believes in a higher power
Loving
Affectionate
Patient
FUNNY (I can't believe I forgot to include this originally!)
Taller than me (I'm 5'2")
Under 50, unless he's super hot, then maybe I could be convinced ;o)
Hard working
Great smile (missing teeth is a deal breaker)
A good friend
A man of his word
Non-smoker (or he's going to quit)
If he drinks, it's just once in a while


So that list isn't too bad is it?  I have an issue with age.  Anyone who knows me, knows exactly why.  As for the teeth - missing teeth is just yucky.  I'd never be able to look at the guy if he was missing teeth because I'd be staring at the gaping hole in his mouth!  I know I've missed a few things, but that give you an idea of what I think would work for me.  Not really ruling out any "type" either.  I think it's a pretty darned good list!

Okay, enough talk about boys...

  1. Agreed on the teeth thing.

    Another thing to avoid is someone with a high tattoo to tooth ratio. They are usually difficult to live with and they are very hard to kill (either self inflicted or otherwise.)

    Good luck with the man search.
