6 Must Have Qualities To Look For While Dating

It occurred to me a couple of weeks ago that as I get older, my “list” significantly gets shorter. You know what “list” I’m talking about…where we write all of the reasonable AND UN-reasonable qualities we want in our future husband. In no particular order, we ramble down on paper this imaginary man in hopes of finding him one day…I looked at my list and realized I’d be better off finding a Unicorn… now my list looks exasperatedly like this:

* Be honest

* Be loyal

* Be AMAZING in bed

* and for God sake, pay for some sh*t!

Exclamation mark and all…but luckily I had the pleasure of running into a funny friend of mine in passing recently and she help me put it all into perspective… I call her Ms. “G”.

Ms. G is a fly, feisty cougar, who has seen and done it all honey! And I just love getting her witty wisdom on the subject matter of men and relationships.

I don’t even remember how we got on the subject , but please believe my girlfriend and I were all ears when she gave her six must have qualities in a potential mate:

  1. Can make you laugh
  2. Have a job!
  3. Good relationship with his Mother and/or sister(s)
  4. Good relationship with YOUR CLOSEST friends
  5. Can makes your panties wet when he kisses you 🙂
  6. Make sure he has a core of good friends of his own

Seems simple enough right? *sigh* …If only in a perfect world. According to Ms. G, if he doesn’t AT LEAST have these basic qualities…he’s not worthy of any serious, long-term consideration…truthfully I couldn’t agree more!

Her name is Brittany Knight, but you can call her “B” as everyone else does. She is a driven right brained individual residing in Atlanta, GA, and the first thing you should know about her is that she is a writer…period. Directly following that is dreamer.

    All of those are great qualities he should have! I’m so nodding and giggling at #5. Great article.
