Intelligent girls stay single until someone attentive comes along. Someone who notices when she gets a new haircut and wears a new dress. Someone who knows what mood she is in by the look on her face and can tell when she is not fine even though she swears that she is. Someone who sees her truth without needing it spelled out for him every time.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone expressive comes along. Someone who is unafraid of explaining how he feels and will admit when he’s upset, disappointed, scared. Someone who isn’t embarrassed about crying in front of her or leaning on her when he needs help. Someone who opens up to her on his own instead of making her force the truth out of him.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone consistent comes along. Someone who shows up on time and calls if he’s going to be a few minutes late. Someone who keeps his word, who follows through on his promises, both big and small. Someone who treats her right, always, not just when he feels like it.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone authentic comes along. Someone who will give his honest opinion instead of blindly agreeing with her. Someone who lets her see the darkest, messiest sides of him. Someone who has a strong personality and isn’t ashamed to show it.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone loyal comes along. Someone who will send her a quick text to let her know he’s going to be home late so she doesn’t stay up, worrying. Someone who will shut down flirting the second another person approaches him, because he is only interested in one woman. Someone who she trusts not to hurt her. Ever.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone respectful comes along. Someone who will shake her father’s hand and call him sir. Someone who will buy flowers for her mother during holidays and tell her how nice the house looks. Someone who she can proudly flaunt around at family functions without worrying about what will come out of his mouth next.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone responsible comes along. Someone who can handle his liquor. Someone who can keep a plant and a puppy alive. Someone mature enough, and independent enough, to take care of himself without begging her to do all the cooking and cleaning and laundry for him.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone supportive comes along. Someone who will support her decision to work her dream job. Someone who will encourage her when she loses her faith. Someone who will remind her how talented she is whenever she forgets.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone exciting comes along. Someone who can banter back and forth with her all night. Someone who can make her laugh until she cries. Someone who she can have fun with while waiting on line at the grocery store.

Intelligent girls stay single until someone worthwhile comes along. Someone who she believes is worth giving up the single life for. Someone who makes her stop being so afraid of falling in love, because she knows that this relationship is going to lead somewhere special. TC mark
