I want a man who doesn’t play hard to get. A man who responds to my text message shortly after he reads it, rather than intentionally ignoring it and responding two hours later.
I want a man who is a go-getter and strives to achieve success in his career. I want a man who doesn’t assume I’m only supportive of his goals so I can enjoy his salary.
I want a man who will hold me when I cry and comfort me until I settle down. I want a man who will bring me back to reality, remind me how good I have it, and reassure me everything will be okay.
I want a man who is not fazed after I finish what seems to be a never-ending Chipotle burrito bowl and doesn’t expect me to go to the gym after.
I want a man to tell me I look beautiful because, after all, I dressed up for him.
I want a man who can’t keep his hands off of me and looks forward to our time spent in bed together.
I want a man who values family. I want a man who can create a healthy balance of both his family and his career.
I want a man who I can trust. So much, that even bachelor parties in Vegas don’t intimidate me.
I want a man who isn’t afraid to admit he wants to get married someday. Not tomorrow, but someday.
I want a man who can teach me new things. I want him to have in-depth conversations with me that stimulate my mind and broaden my sense of culture.
I want a man who will watch me fall flat on my face in a crowded room, yet continue to reassure me no one saw until I actually start to believe it. I want a man that will laugh with me and know I’m not perfect.
I want a man who realizes he cannot be perfect, either. I want a man whose ego doesn’t get in the way.
I want a man who encourages me to build my career. A man who does not expect me to be less ambitious because I’m going to be a mom someday.
I want a man who doesn’t have to tell me he loves me, but shows me. I want a man who shows me by giving me Advil to help my headache, handing me an umbrella because he knows it will rain this afternoon, or by making sure I made it home safely. I want a man who knows actions speak louder than words.
