Did you have a list?

When you started dating did you have a list of requirements your future mate would need before you would go out with them?

I didn't have a list back when I started dating.  The only requirement was that he had to be attractive.  The more I dated the more I found what I liked and didn't like.  Now I  have a list a mile long.  When DH and I separated it became apparent that no man would fit my criteria.

 I'm the same way.

There were a few things that I knew I wanted in a guy when I first started dating. And over time, I realized some things I thought I wanted, it turned out I didn't. Some things I thought I didn't want, it turned out I did, etc. And by the time I met my DH, I had perfected that list and he fit it perfectly!

I didn't have a "list" really but I knew what I didn't want.  I didn't want someone that couldn't hold down a job.  I didn't want an alcoholic or drug user.  I didn't want someone who didn't like kids and didn't want to think about the future.  I didn't want someone that wanted to party all of the time.  I wanted someone already a bit settled.

 No smoking, no drugs, and someone who did not lean on liquor.

A well developed moral compass

Intelligent, treats others well, healthy, compassionate, has a dependable job, occupation, career, and knows how to put up with me... or is willing to learn ....lol.
