I’ve been tagged by beaver

If you have been tagged, you are to come up with 7 qualities of your perfect lover. Do specify the gender. Then list down, and tag, seven other bloggers on their pages. If you’ve been tagged, you need not do this again.

This reminded me of a list I drew up when I was about 17 – in my first year of university. All the girls who lived on my corridor did and list and we stuck them to our doors, hoping that mr perfect would walk along and see them, realise it was him and come on in!

For some strange reason, I still have that list. It is in my shoebox of random papers I keep… so 7 extracts from that!

1. Ethusiastic to travel
2. Must be able to cook (or find good restaurants)
3. Taller than 5ft 6
4. Likes hot weather and beaches
5. Good teeth and broader shoulders
6. Not an American
7. Haircut within the last 3 months.

They all still apply, but here is a more updated list…

1. Intelligent and able to hold a good conversation
2. Interested in the wider world, cares about it and wants to see it
3. Able to deal with me in a bad mood – they never last long but can be bad while they are around
4. Wants children, and realises how completely it would change his life
5. Must have ‘it’ – doesn’t need to be mr gorgeous, but must have something that makes me go mmmmm
6. Must have a steady income – doesn’t need to be loaded but neither do I want to have to support both of us forever
7. Must be willing to try different types of food – I find that men who won’t try food are often closed minded in other ways and don’ have any sense of adventure!

Tag 7 other bloggers… beaver tagged most of the people I’d get!! So, anyone who feels like it, drop me a comment and I’ll tag you!

    HA! I like how “not an American” is in your first list.

    If I put your list and my list together then I think I’d have the ultimate perfect man. You seemed to hit the things I couldn’t fit into my 7.

    Good stuff K-Girl! This is a great list. Sorry about tagging everyone… finding 7 was indeed tricky :o)

    Very reasonable demands, I reckon. The food thing is an important indicator, as you say.
