I was thinking this might be a good thing for us to do to not only boost our self-esteem, but to think about what we can give as well as what we want. And I think this thread and the other are a good way for people who always end up with the wrong kind of person or waste their time on incompatible people to really assess what they should be looking for and stop wasting time on the wrong people or trying to be someone they are not to please someone else.

I for one know if I read a personal ad asking for someone who is passionate, outgoing, and fully of energy. However, I can offer something to someone who would like a steady, thoughtful, practical person who won't find their homebody, introverted lifestyle boring.


2)honestly try to understand things from other person's point of view- want to learn to see things in new ways. I won't give a knee jerk reaction to an unusual idea or pov.

3)Will cherish any time with you, especially the boring stuff. I can sit quietly on the couch reading, go on long car rides and not feel I have to fill the silence every minute, grocery shopping on a Friday night with a lover so we can cook a meal together is my idea of a romantic night out.

4)intelligent conversation, and I will call you on your bullcrud

5)I love animals. I will buy your pets toys, play with them, care for them if you are out of town, and understand your devotion to them. I will offer the love of my own animal companions as well.

I'll have to think of the rest later.

1. I'm willing to give up chores, such as dishes, vacuuming, dusting, to you.

2. I will laugh when you fart instead of squealing "Ew, gross!" and hitting you with my purse.

3. I stay on my side of the bed (unless we're meeting in the middle), and never hog the blankets.

4. I'm really clumsy, so I'll almost always be amusing to you.

5. I've disowned most of my family, so you won't have to deal with uncomfortable family situations.

6. I won't spend any of your money.

7. I don't really care about most holidays, or my birthday, so you'll never have to get me presents, or even remember them. In a similar vein, I won't remember our anniversary, especially those dumb ones that girls do, like "We've been together three weeks!" or "It's been 4 months to the day since you tied my shoe for me that one day at Target" so you're welcome to forget.

8. I'll give you a free fur coat every time you come over. (Just sit on the furniture.)

9. I usually have some kind of soy ice cream in the freezer. Or four.

10. High libido.

11. I hate shopping in stores. I despise clothes shopping, period. You won't have to go for hours-and-hours long outings to the mall with me so you can hold my bags and purse.

12. You tell me where to go, and though I might leave to find it, I'll never let your head hit the bed without my hand behind it. (Tell me that ain't smooth.)

13. I'm too lazy to ever even get the desire to cheat.

14. I have too bad of a memory to even attempt to lie.








...I'll add to these as I think of them. Apparently I can't offer much right off the top of my head.

- caring, loving

- love cooking and make you a meal like every day (except if I have an exam the next day)

- I gonna clean up after you since I hate dirty apartments

- I would tell you every now and then how awesome you are

- honest (I do not keep any secrets from you)

- I cheer you up everytime you feel sad

- I don't drink, smoke or take drugs

- I share my vegan food with you (also my so beloved bean burritos and chocolate/peanut butter ice cream)

- I do your laundry (it just takes too long for me to get enough of my own laundry together, so I would have to wait forever until I can wear my fav shirts and pair of jeans again)

- I love spending time outside (skiing, running, or just lying on the grass looking into the sky)

- I am a good listener

- I gonna start talking about how bad eating <insert non-vegan crap here> is whenever I see you indulging in it

- sometimes I am extremely lazy

- I expect you to do your best (university/job) because I am a perfectionist and I hate seeing you not reaching your whole potential

- I would get really upset if we went to a restaurant with mainly vegetarian/vegan options and you would order meat (I probably won't talk to you for the rest of the day)

- you gonna freeze every night because I love stealing your blanket

to be continued...

Thalia, this is a great idea for a thread.

1. Honesty.

2. Independence. I like to be with you, but I don't shrivel up and die if we have plans that don't include each other.

3. Frugality. Expensive dates and presents do not impress me. Show me where your priorities are by spending time with me and giving your extra money to the poor/charities.

4. Inquisitiveness. Like a friend recently told me, "Skylark, you're such a reporter. You keep asking me questions!" It's natural for me to be curious and care about what's going on with you.

5. Going with #4, I'm usually pretty direct and forthright. I tell you straight and try to keep the guessing out of it.

6. (Stealing this one from Jess) I will laugh when you fart instead of squealing "Ew, gross!" and hitting you with my purse.

7. I give new ideas a chance. If it sounds like bull to me, I'll say so, and that's an invitation for a lively discussion.

8. I'm easy going about things that really don't matter. If we decide on a whim to eat in instead of eating at my favorite restaurant, that's fine.

9. All the trivia you could want. I have a wealth of relatively useless information. Unless we're talking sports, and then you're talking to a blank wall.

10. Lower social inhibitions than some people. In other words, don't dare me to do something, because I definitely will unless it's physically dangerous.

11. I'm someone who can walk into a room full of people I don't know, have you introduce me to all of your friends, and I will have a great time. Sure, I tend to have more fun with people I do know, but I don't let that keep me down.

12. I like animals, children and babies, but I don't go nuts over them. I can take them or leave them, depending on the situation.

13. I like senior citizens. If it's important in your family that Grandpa and Grandma get along well with your SO, never fear.

14. Long, straight brown hair.

15. A full figure.

16. No fear of sweating.

17. Physical affection.

18. I hate malls and department stores. I'm perfectly fine with thrift store shopping and garage saling alone, but if you choose to come along, you're welcome to do so.

19. An appreciation for all body shapes and sizes. It matters little exactly what you look like. If you treat me well, I will see you as sexy.

20. Since you obviously must be a wonderful person if I'm in a relationship with you, my family will welcome you. They're not overbearing, but they're always willing to have me and my friends over.

21. I know what it's like to live on my own. I'm not a spoiled rotten princess who has never paid a bill or cleaned the bathroom.
