As far back as I can remember, I have always had a list. Ladies, you know what list I'm talking about. That list you have in the back of that head of yours. That list that you keep adding to regarding your specifications for a mate. Your next boyfriend. A future husband, perhaps.
Years ago, my list started off with "he needs to be taller than me". (I'm actually glad that Scott nailed that one!) And then my list continued on with, "he needs to have nice eyes... a nice smile... a job... money... friends besides me... good grades... a car...big muscles.... etc"
I mean, the list went on and freaking on.
We all have lists. All of us. Or at least, we did at one point, until maybe you just gave up. Maybe you put that list right into the paper shredder in your mind. Maybe you lowered your standards. Or maybe, you met someone who didn't fit most of the criteria, but yet fit so well with you, somehow.
The latter of those options, is what happened for me.
I met a man who didn't fit a lot of the "criteria" that I had for my so called, "perfect match" and I fell head over heels for him. I fell so hard. I still do.
& as much as I love writing the cheesiest, most sappy posts... I'm not going to do that to you today. Instead I want to say this:
To the girl who might be reading this who has a long list of requirements that her perfect man must be able to meet:
Maybe the perfect man only meets 99 of your 100 requirements. Maybe the perfect man for you meets none of your requirements. Maybe he's right under your nose, and yet... you don't even know it, because your list is getting in the way. Your list is blocking your view, of the most perfect man for you.
Take a look at your lists. Take a good look. And then, shred them. Let love come to you. Give people a chance.
