13 Qualities I Want in a Husband
Wednesday, November 07, 2007
Thirteen Qualities I Want in a Husband

In no particular order. If there's a ** next to it, that means it's a MUST. Otherwise it's just a preference. I'm trying to keep this list specific, and not list down the generic things like "trustworthy, honest, caring, sense of humor, handsome, intelligent." I don't think people are as interested to read lists like that. Been there done that. This list is tailored for me, Daphne.

1) Taller than me. It's really not that hard considering I'm 4'11". **

2) Does not smoke/do drugs. **

3) Knows how to dress. I'm not saying super metro or that he needs to wear expensive brands. I'm talking about basics. Like knowing how to put on a tie. Or knowing that you don't wear white socks with black shoes.

4) Is Christian. Note that I didn't say Catholic, which is what I am. Although I would strongly prefer him to be Catholic, I'm not making that a must. But I am pretty religious and it plays a big part in my life. I'd rather have a good Christian than a bad Catholic. **

5) Isn't in that stage of his life where he's "figuring out what he wants to do" or can't seem to find any career path suitable to him. Nope, sorry. Daphne is not going to go there. I'm not trying to be an elitist. But I just don't want a man who is like my cousins, who will forever be waitressing while taking one unit a semester at a junior college that they should've been done with three years ago - all because they don't know yet what they want to do with their lives. **

6) Is somewhat geeky. What type of geek? The Star Wars loving, video/computer game playing, knows how to build a computer, and knows what I mean when I say things like l33t, w00t, pWn3d, etc. type of geek.

7) Puts family on the top of his list. I don't think I could be with someone who hated his parents (unless it was reasonable, like they abandoned him or something). And I also don't want to date someone who won't let me spend time with my family. **

8) Knows how to have a good time once in awhile with close friends, but is kinda over the whole clubbing/bar scene.

9) Wants children/is open to the possibility of children. I bring this up because my boss was suggesting I go out with his younger brother who is my age. I clicked on the link to his myspace and the guy said "I don't want children" in his profile. No thanks. **

10) Is clean and has good table manners. Yah, this one is kinda generic but it still amazes me how some guys still chew all loud with their mouths open. Or throw their clothes on the floor and leave dirty dishes in the sink. Seriously now. That's a sign of laziness.

11) Is not in major debt. School loans, fine. But being in debt because you HAD to have a new BMW or plasma tv. Nope. No, I'm not only after the richie riches. But after going through all the crap that I do with my brother, I just can't imagine going through it with a potential husband.

12) Gives me some alone time when I need it. Whether it be me wanting to read instead of watch tv with you, me wanting to have a girls night out, or me wanting you not to touch me because I'm on my rag. **

13) In the dating phase - respects the fact that I still live at home, and even if I did move out, no I'm not going to live with you before we get married. (Yes, call me old fashioned, but it's my preference) **

    On my 25th birthday I made a toast of all the things I wanted and needed in a relationship. Once I thought about it I didn't think I'd ever meet anyone like that who would also happen to, you know, like me back.

    Yeah, I was married before I turned 26. It's good to know what you want I think, or how else do you know what you DON'T want?

    Good list.

    Nice list :D I do agree with most of it; however, I'm wondering if we're asking for too much?

    That's a pretty good list Daph. He's out there somewhere. :)

    I don't think you're asking for too much. I lived at home until I got married. Joey loved it and it didn't bother him.

    Excellent list. We matched for 11 of them. :P

    (the ones we don't match are children and religion)

    Super cool!

    I think that's an excellent list, babe.

    Nath, I don't think you or Daph is asking for too much. It's important to know what you want in a man, and to not settle for less than you deserve. Daph's list isn't unreasonable. She isn't asking for the world, just for a steady man who loves her and shares the same interests as she does. That's a good thing. And I have faith that she (and you) will find what you're looking for..it just might take awhile.

    Rosie, Isabel, Holly - thanks guys. your real life stories give me hope. i'm secretly jealous of what you guys have. hehe, but i know you're all right. he's out there somewhere.

    nath, hey there! no, it's not asking for too much. we're good people. why settle for less?

    Thinking about it, Daphne, you're so right :D Why should we settle for less?
