Getting Some Standards

Last night I was watching this programme called Girlfriends and basically what is about is 3 girls looking for boyfriends. The way they go about it is a bit like intensive speed dating and they all sit whilst 100 guys come through and tells them about themselves. As they are doing this the girls have to decide on the spot whether they want to date them or not, however they are only allowed to pick 3.

This is dangerous as they could potentially pick 3 and then find something better comes along or they could wait hoping for something better and find they end up with no one.

It got me thinking about relationships in real life (not that this isn't real but you know what I mean). For someone like me who isn't looking to settle with just anyone, am I in fact setting my sights too high or am I right to know what I want and only go for it. Whilst watching the programme I was mentally making a list of requirements if I could build my perfect man and so far I have come up with the following;

Tall - needs to be about 5ft 11 or above (I like high heels and I want them to be taller than me)

They like to keep in shape

They have a good career or have goals

They want to see the world

They can drive (you would think this was a given but you would be surprised the amount of guys I have dated who can't)

They are adventurous

They are clean (no hairy smelly people thank you - be there done that)

They don't smoke

They don't mind having a drink

They like to dance (they don't have to actually be able to but at least be willing to get up and try)

They are intelligent

They dress well

And most of all they have to have a good sense of humour and be able to make me laugh
Surely this isn't too much to ask or is it??

  1. I think a lot of people these days settle for just whatever because they don't want to be alone.

    I'm like you, my standards get higher after every man I meet. I think you have every right to know what you want and to not settle for less.
