Heck I’m already married but I’m not necessarily describing my man here.
1. Fear of God
I’m someone who values my religious beliefs so much. I also believe that a man will pass on his faith to his kids. I want someone who fears the Lord in a sense that he doesn’t want to go to hell = he doesn’t want to sin = he doesn’t want to do bad.
I believe that genuine fear and love of God makes a man. It builds, supports and maintains the character and gives him principles.
I’d like a man who can laugh at himself and see the funny things in life even if it gives more reasons to cry.
From humor stems optimism and hope. I don’t want a man who sulks and gets depressed all the time.
3. Sense of Responsibility.
A man needs to have genuine balls. You know the kind that not necessarily sweeps you off your feet. I want a man who carries me all the way steadily – that I hardly ever notice it.
This gives him a sense of direction and perseverance.
I cannot have a better example than this than my father-in-law. He started a company from scratch, and up to now, works himself at 5AM everyday. And yet he lives a simple life.
5. Street Smart
If he has a good brain, better. But I’d like a man who can survive. I guess you can say he needs to have high EQ?
Hmmm.. this is a little vague. But maturity can gather these traits: sense of commitment, non-judgmental, understanding, and all the things you see in a man who has balls.
7. Height and a Nice Smile (Throw in a Nice Pair of Teeth)
Contrary to what I say all the time that I love good-looking men, I’ve had my bad taste of them – not necessarily because they were losers, but they were just not that as nice looking. I just want men who are taller than me and has a smile that can throw beams of sunshine. Ooooh lalala. Aim that smile on me and I’m done baby.
8. Has a Genuine Sense of Self
I’m talking about my needs here. I’ve got a pretty strong character and I admit I sometimes step on the male ego more than I want to. My guy needs to know he wears the pants in the family even if I show otherwise. No space for insecurities.
9. Family Man
I’m all for my family.
10. Someone who loves me for me.
No exceptions. No clauses. No add-ons. Even if I was the ugliest woman in the world, he can still see right through me, and still choose me.
