Mmm Saturday's

It is days like this that makes me love the fact that I am single and have no kids.

I went to bed around 10:30 last night, got up at 8:20 (because someone texted me), did the daily bathroom things, cooked bacon, made french toast, and I have been lounging on the couch, watching NCIS, and drinking coffee since then. I do plan on getting some work done today but I just love this. I have no one I have to meet or entertain and just be blahh all I want.

People always ask me why I am single, or if I am looking for a guy while I'm at school, and my reply is always "No I'm not looking for a guy at school". My reasons are, I'm not paying thousands of dollars to get a boyfriend or to party, and I need to focus on school. I have always been super independant and I'll admit I don't always do well in relationships because I don't NEED a guy and I really don't like it when I settle into a routine with another person other than family.

But from the few people I have dated, I have made a "list" of qualities I would like in a guy and since I don't feel the need to have a guy, I think I am going to stick with these qualities.

  • Somone I can play games with and laugh, poke fun at, and just have the best time
  • Has to like camping and the outdoors
  • Would rather hang out with people and do things that doesn't involve TV, internet, or video games
  • Sense of adventure
  • Doesn't smoke
  • Someone who can fight with me, but not hold grudges
  • Accept my falts and flaws
  • Can have fun by doing nothing
  • Willing to try new things
  • Respects people and myself
  • Can give me my space when needed
  • Stand beside me
  • Willing to defend me (even if I am wrong)
  • Can express his feelings when needed
  • Can apologize when needed (but not apologize over every little thing)
  • Doesn't do drugs
  • Doesn't nag
  • Doesn't constantly feel the need to compliment me
  • Has dreams, goals, ambitions that go beyond a career and school
  • Has a crazy side that I can adore
  • Sense of humor (BIG BIG)
  • Knows when to be serious
  • Mature but can still have fun
  • Not insecure, but not full of himself
  • Won't freak out over little things
  • Can stay calm in situations and emergencies
  • Allows me to have a different opinion and won't hold it against me or think less of me
  • Can disagree but still respect me and others
  • Has to be able to handle and like my family
  • Family has to like him
  • Willing to pitch in and help with work
  • Competitive side, won't let me push him around
  • Can laugh at nonserious set backs
  • Trusts me and is open when there is a trust issue
  • Does not ignore me when issues, problems, or concerns arrive
  • Understanding
  • Won't just to conclusions all the time
  • Can sit back and just let me complain
  • Can tell me when I need to toughen up
  • Doesn't start unnecessary drama
  • Can come to me to vent
  • Doesn't feel the need to constantly be in contact
  • Likes the simple things in life
  • Doesn't mind having every day routines, but likes to be spontaneous
  • Won't shy away at the thought of commitment

So there's my list! I know it may seem long and some parts repetitive but it's my list and I'm sticking too it.

Frankly, I am just happy being with just myself, family, and the horses I work with. I'm not afraid of a commitment but I'm not about to jump into one.

Thanks for reading and happy Saturday!


  1. I like your mind set. I think people get in this trap of looking for someone so desperately that they scare people away. When the right person comes along, you'll know it. As for your list... seems reasonable to me.

  2. Thanks Dom :) I don't want to settle just for anyone.
