LOVE || don't need a love song. . .

I was listening to the radio a while ago and they were discussing why women of color don't get married, or asked to marry. Different thoughts were thrown out including men not knowing what kind of woman they'd like to marry. On the other hand, it was pointed that women have no idea of what kind of person they'd want for a life partner.

I used to say I don't know what kind of man I'd like in my life, but I think it's a bit clearer now. It is interesting that what I'd want in a guy is what I'd like in any friend.
So here's my list. He should:

  • Be funny
  • Be genuinely nice
  • Be supportive of my goals and have goals that he's working on that I can be supportive of in return
  • Be open to new experiences, places, people, things.
  • Be interested in and appreciative of different forms of art.
  • Always be willing to learn something new.
  • Be more doer than talker. Life is short, talking about things can go on forever.
  • Be funny. Again. I love a good sense of humor.
  • Be a great conversationalist. I love exchanging ideas.
  • Find that being involved in the community is important and find a way to be involved. Large or small.
I don't think that list is too long. I mean, I can go on with even more specifics, like him liking coffee shops or posh bars for dressing up and chatting, or cooking, or other smaller thingsbut that's neither here nor there. So that just about sums it up.

Does anyone else have a list?

Thanks for reading.
