Ten on Tuesday

Thanks for welcoming me back yesterday and thanks for missing me!  I missed all of you, too.  It’s nice to be disconnected from the world for a bit but it’s also nice to come back and catch up.

And now on to today’s Ten on Tuesday.  The theme is 10 Traits  You Look for in a Romantic Interest.

And there he is, my romantic interest.  He’s at the beach and he doesn’t even like the beach but he goes because I love it.  That’s a pretty good trait, right there.

1. Good looks.  This may make me shallow but it’s what I notice first.

2. A great sense of humor.  Because some day those good looks are going to fade.

3. A nice ass.  TMI?  Sorry.

4. He must be a reader.  This one is a deal breaker.  I am a librarian, after all.

5. Financial security.

6. Zest for living.  He needs to be someone who never says no to a good time.

7. Support for my pursuits.  I want the space to pursue my hobbies and interests.

8. Romance is a nice thing.  Flowers for no reason, love letters, poems . . .

9. Kitchen skills.  I’d love for my man to cook me dinner now and again.

10.  Selflessness.  As in, he puts me first.  Ex:  a husband who goes on a beach vacation when he doesn’t even like the beach.

  1. Welcome home, Carole! Looks like you had a nice time. And I agree 100% with your list. I don’t think I’d change a thing!

  2. Re: #3 – It is very important. You’ve gotta have something to squeeze now and again. Or several times a day. 🙂

  3. well, I’m going to have to check out #3 next time I come over! but seriously, #2 and #6 are so important

  4. Excellent list, Carole. (My Bear satisfies every one of those criteria, inmo.) But dang, I could get the hots for your Dale, too. I think it’s the beard — I have a weakness for those…

  5. Wonderful list!

    Not shallow. Realistic. It’s nice to have something pretty to look at on car trips through boring landscapes.
