MY IDEAL MAN CHECKLIST – ORIGINAL, REVISED ANND ASSUMED VERSIONS …

   When I was a teenager, I had this stringent list of what my ideal man should be: handsome, well-off, caring, understanding, God-fearing, intelligent – I could have gone on and on then about what qualities my partner should have. However, as I grew older, I realized that I could never really find a real person who met all these sterling qualities.
I began building my-ideal-man-list at age 20 and recently I made a revised version, while I was doing that I decided to make a sample list of what it would look like as my age increases.

     As funny as this might be, it is true” as you grow older, your original list of ‘requirements’ for an ideal man are revised. Now, all I am looking for in an ideal man is one who can be both a best friend and a partner in life, and someone who will love me as unconditionally as I love him. And what about you? What’s your perfect checklist?

Great post.Standards in Women are important to me and my ideal woman will be someone who thinks for herself but values my opinion. Also a lady I can share myself with and not be worried about anything but her opinion. If she is out there I don't care what she looks like I care how we make each other feel.
