I'm going to add my own here:
What I am looking for
A man that will open a door for a woman, not because it's "socially accepted" but because he likes to make me feel special. A man that likes kids and can laugh at himself (and me). The kinda man that doesn't buy me flowers but sends text messages like "Morning Beautiful" or "Thinking about you". A man that likes to spend time with his family (and mine) but finds it equally important to spend time - without me - with his friends. The kind of man that knows when to be supportive and when to tell me I'm being over-dramatic. I want a gentleman but I also want someone who will tell me rauncy jokes, slap my ass, and flaunt me to his friends. A man who laughs - a lot. A man who is adventerous but not impulsive. A man that can be honest about how he feels and what he needs from me to make a relationship work. Someone who wants kids and quite a few. A man who can fingerpaint with the best of 'em. A man who appreciates my nerdyness - nose in a book, glasses, snorts when I think something is really funny - and my constant rambling (which I do a lot). Lol. I want a best friend. A man who texts or calls me wether or not it follows the "dating rules". I'm not looking to get laid - my showerhead suffices - I don't want a man that's here to "hit it and quit it". I want a man who tells me I am tan even when we both know that I am not. I want to be flattered - in moderation. Not to be all Cheap Trick but "I want you to want me", not just sexually, but mentally, and for the person I am. I like to do nice things for people and I would like to find a man that is the same way. And lastly, I want someone who is compassionate towards other people and genuinely cares about other people's well-being.
I would like to note that I don't expect a man to be ALL of these things - it's like my "bucket list" of dating. But for me, if I am serious with someone, I want to make them happy and if I can do little things that they appreciate that I wouldn't normally do, then it seems to me it's a win-win situation. Relationships are not 50-50. I dislike that expression. I'm willing to give 100%. :)
