Resolution #3: The LIST

Resolution #3 is to live my life in such a way that I am constantly moving toward my goals.  For example, I want to get married again (someday).  If that's my goal, then why would I waste my time dating men who just don't fit the bill?  How do I know if they fit the bill...you may ask?  Well...I have a LIST.

Yes, I have a LIST of the Ten Things I Require in a Husband (you may be thinking to yourself that it's possible I'm a teeny bit controlling, uptight and/or anal.  Think what you may...I still have my list).

Here it is:
  • He makes me laugh.
  • He has a stable career and his own home.
  • He likes my kids and they like him.
  • He is confident enough to do and say what he wants without worrying about what other people think.
  • He is well read.  I can share books with him.
  • He is intelligent and capable of conversing on any topic.
  • He follows, trusts and depends on the same God as I do.
  • He loves me more than he loves himself.
  • If the world fell apart, I would want him to be my partner.
  • He doesn't need me...but he loves me.
At times in my life I have dated men who meet most of these requirements, but never all of them.  My sister tells me I'm too picky.  She thinks I need to lower my standards.  I think I should never settle for less than exactly what I want.

  1. Ok, this list sounds great, but you and I both know that you are picky even beyond this list. For instance, you can't stand men who can't spell. (By the way, you spelled confident wrong :-P)
