Five things that are most important to you in a future mate
I had to really think about this! And I thought this was the fun question 🙂 but beyond the superficial, it’s kinda hard to think of the top 5. But here’s what I’ve got.
- Similar faith, values, and beliefs. I thought about putting “man of God” or “Christian” or something along those lines. But that’s not enough. Did you know Christianity has a lot of branches? And denominations have different beliefs? I want our core faith, values, and beliefs to be the same. This includes general values and beliefs, like in life or about family, etc.
- Cultural openness and independence. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a person uses his/her culture to explain away behavior. It bugs me when a person refuses to rise beyond cultural tradition. But it also bugs me when a person can’t appreciate tradition. Every culture has its good and bad parts. There are things in my culture that I love and embrace, and there’s also the opposite. It’s very important that he’s both open and independent of culture, whatever culture. Love and embrace the good stuff, the stuff we can incorporate in our lives and family. And rise above the bad stuff, be independent of traditions or norms that don’t work, displease God, damage other people, etc.
- Ability to dance. Literally and metaphorically. I want a dance partner. Someone who knows how to lead. Someone with a solid frame. Someone who knows how to enjoy the moment. Someone who knows how to flow with the music. Someone who isn’t afraid to get on the dance floor, command it and shake it. Because in life, we need to be able to take what is thrown at us with grace and strength. With flexibility and control. Ballet and Jazz. Samba and the Waltz.
And that’s it. I’ve got 3! Whoopee! Seriously, I can’t think of anything else except that he’s got to be taller and older (not significantly, mind you, but yeah). I don’t know why taller and older. It’s just a thing 😀
Your favorite “weird/funny single behavior” – Anything you do that is uniquely YOU and that living alone allows you to do (For example, I sometimes dance around the house with my cat to Frank Sinatra)
I watch movies at the theater by myself.
Now I review the movies on Examiner, but even when I didn’t, I have always liked watching movies by myself. I actually started doing this to step away from stresses and pressures. It was a form of relaxation and escape. But now, it’s what I prefer.
One, it’s cheaper when I go in the mornings. Used to be $6 at AMC, but they raised it to $7. Still cheap.
Two, it’s less hassle getting people together because it’s only me and I go on my own time.
Three, the theater isn’t crowded or noisy. Sometimes, I’m the only one in the room! Hahahaha 😀
I have to admit that it can get super awkward when I see people I know who went as a group and they’re watching the same movie I am. But hey, this is me!
