1- has a stable job and a handle on his finances. Debt is ok if he is making strides to pay.
2- a father. The real kind. Not afraid to discipline but still wilk get down on the floor and play.
Also has to want at least one more child.
3- wants me. I know it seems obvious but its not. I don't mean wants me around to do the housework and in the bedroom. I mean wants me just to sit there and watch the storm pass or to talk to.
4- has to communicate. No storming off in a snit or raging around because he's angry. Needs to have a grip on his temper and talk to me.
5- values time with family.. a man who would rather sit and talk to his wife and children than sit on the computer and blow money on video games.

Religion I don't care much about but I do want to add good hygiene! Lol


Quoting steviechick:

The dude has to be completely opposite from my ex and that would be......


1.  Financially stable.  NO debt.  Knows how to budget, save money and have money to spend.


2.  Honest, down to earth, outgoing and likes to do the same things I do.


3.  Likes to travel and watch very little tv. 


4.  Shows affection on the wim and is open about it.


5.  Knows how to cook.


6.  Knows how to clean - that means his own laundry.


7.  Charming and has a great sense of humor but not too overwhelming. 


8.  Fit.  No one overweight need apply.


9.  Likes to drink wine and go wine tasting.


10.  Is a good mentor to my daughter.  She has hardly any male role models. 


11.  No fear of commitment.  Is looking for a serious relationship and comitted to me and me only.


12.  Is religious.  Which means he will be good, decent and all around great guy.

I agree with pretty much all the post. Esp., the one about good hygiene.  Although,  I for one have absolutely no inclination to ever be involved with another man, guy, dude, boy what ever you want to call them.  I'm 34 been married for 10 years at one point.  Divorced.  Now, I'm single an pregnant with a wonderful daughter to be by a "man" yea right, who completely had me fooled.  So I'm done until retirement with men.  I'm perfectly fine building mine and my daughters life with out a manly disruption.  But that's just me..The ninja has nothing to do with it, I just thought it was funny..ninja

I had a list and only end up getting hurt in the end. When I met my bf I gave him my list and he said well am out I don't fit but his personality attracted and as we became from friends to gf/bf my list has dissapeared I learned that sometime we have to go outside the box our list in order to be happy and find the right guy:)

And he is even better than the list.

I definitely feel you on that one. I'm so beyond over men, I don't think I'll ever bounce back. Lol


Quoting lucasmadre:

Never thought I could say this but I am so over men. I couldn't think of a single thing I would want one to be!!! That could change I know but right now being single feels like the best deal in town. They are just too much work!!!
