What We Want
Sun, 04-29-2012 - 2:31am

I should have been in bed an hour ago.  Indeed, I'm typing this from under the covers.  I went on a date tonight, of sorts.  Nice guy, maybe friends, similar interests, -20 chemistry scale.  Now I'm home alone and it's making me think about what I want.

Someone to cuddle with as we fall asleep

Someone who has a male perspective when I get far down a rabbit hole with some problem

Someone who cares enough to ask questions about my life

Someone who looks at me when I talk, at least occasionally

The kinds of compliments only men will say

Someone hanging around doing the bizarre, illogical things men do just because they are men

Someone who will not get swayed by my persuasive suggestions that we take radical action, but who will calmly and logically discuss them.


What do you want?

I don't know what I want. I met an absolutely gorgeous, charming, intelligent, kind, confident, and seemingly sincere guy tonight. I've tried, for the last hour, to post about the exchange...and what may or may not happen if he does what he said he'd do later today...and what might happen if I follow through...and I can't even commit to hitting the little blue post button.

I'm glad you met someone nice, Marina :smileyhappy:      That much, I can commit to...

I think you made a pretty good list there.  I'd like:

someone to do things with so I don't have to look around for a date or companion every time I want to go out

someone to be romantic with (and of course have exciting sex)

someone to talk to when I come home from work, who's genuinely interested in how my day went

someone to do the heavy lifting and manly things around the house (that I now make my 16 yr old do--but what happens when he goes to college?)

If I could really dream big, I'd also pick someone who likes to dance
