      Number 8 gets me as well, it is rare that I meet a women that challenges me here. Not saying that I am an ass but the wits to ID when I am full of shit is really really attractive.

    My favorite is #10. I wouldn’t want to date “my perfect guy”—I like him to be his own person and have his own tastes and show me new things that I may or may not like. Sigh.

      I didn’t realize how important this is until I started to really analyze why my male friendships were so exceptional. They closest friends I have ever had have always pushed me in a direction I was lacking and vice versa. It never occurred to me that this was also the key to a wonderful relationship with the opposite sex.

    Love it, love it, love it! Once again, another fabulous list! And this one is my favorite. Great perspective.

    I’m a little wary of dating guys with kids, though. That’s my one grey area. I mean, on one hand: Instant family! ;) On the other hand, uh: Probably an ex-wife, custody issues, kids when you may not know if you want them yet (me!) and the societal expectation that you’ll step in as a mother figure when all you’re (initially) interested in is the guy!

    So, yeah, not sure about this guy. But I concede, it does give you perspective you wouldn’t otherwise have.

    Anyway, back to my original sentiment: LOVE this list!

    • Mike Masters says:

      The article was originally written for a crowd recently divorced. I might need remove the whole kid one. I feel the same way about children but I get hell for it. I want my own children not yours and if you are offended by that, get used to it!

      Thanks again for liking the article! I look forward to seeing your guest post.
      Stay tuned to for Friday, I might actually be serious in that post!

    Great list! I would say a bit NO to #3. If you’re divorced and have kids yourself, seeing a man that has kids and is a great father would be a positive trait for sure. But I don’t have kids, and don’t under any circumstances (even if you factor in millions and millions of dollars) want to inherit someone else’s kids! And I’m not afraid of offending anybody by saying it. It’s my life!

    I also don’t really see #2 as a plus. I prefer the ex to be completely out of the picture. Far far FFAARRRR out of the picture. Like Antarctica studying the penguins out of the picture. I would prefer he just generally dislike her because I would dislike her just on principle.

    I think my favorites are #4 #5 #13 and #15… #1 is good too, and #8 too… and #16 (really really good looking!)… and #17 (with lots of money)…

    Now, to find this magical man…

      Where would we be with out Princes T’s opinion!

      Like I mentioned above, this was written in the assumption that you have kids as well.

      2 is important if kids are involved

      glad you like the rest though!
      and thanks for adding the ones I was reluctant to share.

      • PrincessT says:

        Hehe :-) i like giving my opinions! :-P And I like hearing other people’s opinion’s too.

        I read what you wrote above, and I totally get it from the perspective of being divorced and having kids yourself. And having a sense that a man will be a good father is good for anybody who is thinking of having kids. But personally, I couldn’t accept a man’s children from another relationship. I’m sure there are other ways of seeing if he’ll be a good father… like if he has a dog or something. Oh #18 – is good with animals!

    i like #9…it’s the “just jealous enough” type…it can be endearing and flattering. however, i have dated a few who claim they never get jealous. is this ever true?

    • Mike Masters says:

      very simple, why would he insist/agree to sexual exclusivity if he were never jealous? This is part of human nature and to say “I never get jealous” is akin to “I never get angry” “I don’t really sleep” “I never masturbate” “I never look at other women” “I hate junk food” “I never smell my own farts”

    • Jersey Brett says:

      I used to say this too, until I started dating a girl I actually really cared about. At that point, I realized my earlier protestations that “I never get jealous” really meant “I don’t give much of a damn about you and what you do with yourself.”

    For me.. =)
    If a guy can’t handle that I have male friends that are just friends.. (even if at one time there might have been more..).. then he is too insecure for me. Exes are exes for a reason, and past is past, and I don’t have hots for a friend. (If I had hots, I would have done something about it before I met him)
    If a guy feels that he can’t trust me on that, then it is better than we go our separate ways.

    Likewise a guy who can’t get along with _any_ of his exes, there is definitely something wrong with him. I don’t want to get involved with someone who is so immature that he can’t get over his emotions any other way – or worse, thinks it is always womans fault that the relationship didn’t work.
    (I will be his next ex, whom he will blame for everything..)

    I had a pseudo-relationship for 3 years with a friend of mine who meets all these requirements except for #3 (no kids), but that was it: a pseudo-relationship. He didn’t want to commit and say “we are a couple” despite the fact that we ended up living together, with more people in a shared flat, yes, but we acted most of the times like a couple. Apparently, considering me a girlfriend was too much, though. He kept telling me that I was a wonderful girl, that he loved me deeply as a friend (and I know that’s true), but that he didn’t feel the same as me. Another eternal excuse was that he was terrible at relationships, that we were so different in that sense that our relationship would inevitably go wrong, that he was meant to be alone because he was too selfish to make such concessions to anybody, that I deserved someone better who could offer me whatever I needed and he couldn’t give me. The sensible thing to do would have been to cut any sexual contact and remain friends, but we didn’t and he didn’t change his mind either. The paradox is that he has shared more experiences and spent more time together with me so far than with any other of her other girlfriends (yes, girlfriends) and is actually in a relationship with someone at the moment, while I was just, well, a special friend. It hurt me that he didn’t even want to try.

    So, after all these ramblings (sorry about that), I would say that another good sign to add to the list would be being open and ready to let the rapport flow and see how it goes, not killing any possibilities of potential relationship from the beginning because, unless you’re just looking for casual sex, what’s the point?
