Ready for Romance

My Aunt and Uncle were in town and they took us out to my favorite Chinese Buffet. At the end of our meal they gave us each a fortune cookie. Mine said, "There's a good chance of a romantic encounter soon." So I have my eyes open, we will see what happens.

This reminded me of a conversation I had about a month ago on what I am looking for in a wife. It is a somewhat supperficial list and it is not essential that my future wife has all or many of these attributes, but hey if someone wants to know what I would like, this is it.

Looks: Which of course come first, but after the initial attraction, her personality will either make her truly beautiful, or not attractive anymore.

Hair: I have found I prefer darker hair with a bit of curl.

Eyes: Blue eyes are nice, but I also like brown. More so than the color, she needs to have eyes that you can look into and see hope, knowing that everything is going to be alright as long as you are together.

Smile: This is very important, she must have a heavenly smile and a good sense of humor. I don't want it to be fake though, she doesn't have to be happy all the time. Plus I am really good at cheering people up. So every so often I need to have the opportunity to make things better.

Body Type: I do not want a twig for a wife. Someone who is going to get blown over if the wind picks up. I would much prefer someone who is athletic and has a little substance. I really enjoy sports, so if she enjoyed them that would be awesome. I don't want to take my kids to go kick a ball around and say so long honey, I would love her to be right there with me. She doesn't have to be amazing at it, I just want her around.

Height: Once again this isn't really important but the closer to my height the better. Anything between about 5'3" and 5'9" would be good.

Looks only go so far though, once I am attracted to someone and want to get to know them better, the only thing that matters is their personality and interests. First of all she has to enjoy roller coasters. I don't want to spend all of my vacations only riding the Merry-Go-Round, although that happens to be one of my favorite rides.

I also am a bit of a Jazz fan and she needs to accept that, or enjoy it, which would truly be a dream come true. She also needs to be good with money. I am not going to complain about how much money teacher's make, I made a conscious decision when choosing my profession. I am very good with money and I need a wife that is as well. I would prefer she didn't have to work, but if she wants to then that would be ok.

Music has always been a big part of my life and if she had a good voice I would love to sit around a piano and sing together. Talking about the piano, I am not very good, so if she could play that would be sweet.

She also needs to be someone I can talk to, that isn't afraid to share her opinions and have her own interests. I am very easy going and don't take life to seriously, so she needs to be laid back as well. Someone who is service oriented and who is my best friend. So for those girls a month ago who asked me what I was looking for, that is what I can think of off the top of my head.

I am ready for my romantic encounter. Bring it on!

haha the song you picked for this post is perfect.

She is fast, thorough, and sharp as a tack. She is touring the facility and picking up slack.

Very nice list! I'll keep my eyes open. How do you feel about older divorced women with children?

GrandmaBev said...

Nice list. I would add religion to my list also. She definately need the spirit and gospel background.

Lorraine said...

a good list...

It reminds me of something an older make friend told me once... "Men fall in love because they find a woman beatiful and women find a man beautiful because they fall in love with them.

I can't wait to someday meet the girl who wins your heart. I am sure she will be special!
