Finding the Perfect Man

I think finding the perfect man or partner in life is one of the most difficult tasks you will ever have to undertake.

I came across an online article the other day – one of those Cosmo type checklists and I thought I would make my own list of things I find key in choosing the right man.

You can compromise on so many things but the following should be non-negotiable:

  1. If a man really wants to be with you, nothing will keep him away
  2. Slower is better – don’t rush a relationship
  3. Don’t ever settle – if you have doubts, move on
  4. Trust your instincts
  5. Accept that you will never be able to change a man
  6. He needs to let you be you
  7. You must share common core beliefs and values
  8. He needs to make you laugh – nothing is sexier than a man with a sense of humor
  9. Never let a man (or anyone else) define your worth
  10. Never let a man disrespect you
  11. His job, education and financial status does not make him superior to you and he has no right to belittle you
  12. You must be able to communicate and honest communication is key
  13. He needs to be your friend
  14. He needs to make you feel good about yourself
  15. You need to have a general sense of happiness when around him
  16. He needs to bring out the best in you
  17. Don’t stick around if he is manipulative and controlling
  18. You must share 3 things: Lust, Attraction, Attachment

Are there any points you would like to add?

  1. That's so true Lanthie. Every woman ought to know not to ever sell herself short. If a man has an interest in a woman then nothing will keep him from trying to get to know her for himself. A man loves a woman who has a mind of her own, knows what she wants in life and is not looking for a man to totally support her physically, mentally and/or spiritually. A woman should make a man's life complete and visa versa. I just loved the points you stated in your post.
