  • Well, I'm happily married for 22 years now, but I DID have a list of what I wanted in a man when I met my husband......and he's very different from the man I thought I wanted.....but it's been working for us for all these years, so, I guess it's okay to have an idea what you want, but I wouldn't totally disqualify guys who don't meet your never know if they'll be the one.....

  • I'm just looking for someone who is understanding, faithful, trustworthy, and who wants the same thing I'm looking for which is family, a lot of kids, and for us to be on the same level of maturity

  • While I am married, I had a short list of things I was looking for:
    1. He had to be taller than me.
    2. His hair could not be longer than mine (it was halfway down my back)
    3. His ass could not be smaller than mine

    I decided these 3 things were dealbreakers because my poor feminine ego couldn't handle it otherwise! :)

  • When I was single, I wanted a tall, well built, blond guy with blue eyes and who had a job and treated me great. I have now been married for 23 years to a dark haired, short guy with blue eyes who is a little overweight, but loves me and is a great dad. Once I stopped looking for that "perfect guy", the right one came along.
