Your ideal mate.

I was watching Oprah yesterday and this woman had a checklist of what she wanted (and didn't want) in a potential mate. What would be on your list?

  • everything opposite of every other man i've dated. HA!

    a TRUE relationship with GOD, kind, funny, compassionate, spontaneous, financially stable (owns a house, no debts, steady job...), willing to be a LOVING father to my daughters... etc. being hot and musically talented wouldn't hurt either. lol.

  • I wouldn't ever have a list. Lists make it much harder on yourself to except people as they are. I betcha she will have a hard time finding the man who fits on that list & when she does, what if he doesn't like her? I think lists are a bad way to go. Had i made a list prior to meeting my DH, we never would have hooked up because he is %100 different than what i THOUGHT i liked. He completely blew my mind & blew all of my expectations out of the water. Love him so much!!!!!

  • My ideal mate is someone who does not yell me down and does not yell other people. Has goals and supports my goals and someone who has friends and a life. I am so happy with myself and the goals I have.

  • I actually made a list years ago in high school. It was pretty long and detailed. I found it going through some old things at my mom and dad's house a couple of years ago. DH meets all of them and then some.
