We want it all!!!
No, seriously, we do want and need many, many things. And there isn’t a damn thing wrong with that. I wish I could stand on top of a mountain and scream down;
“STOP LOWERING YOUR STANDARDS”
And all the women in the world would hear me.
The other day I was talking to a single, beautiful woman. She has no kids, a fantastic career, and a kick-ass personality, but she has a significant flaw. She said she didn’t want to be too picky about her ideal man.
I’m like, WHAT the hell do you mean by too picky?
She told me she didn’t want to seem too demanding by expecting her future husband to be able to check all of her boxes. She would rather come across as less demanding than to scare a man away by expecting him to have all of the following attributes:
- God fearing
- Light to Amusing personality
- Dress well
- Good job
- Heterosexual and not Bisexual
- Nice groomed haircut
- Family orientated
And that’s it! That’s all she had on her list of must-haves, or I should say to her, “I would like to have list”.
I told her I didn’t see anywhere on that list where she said he had to be perfect. If she had written that, I would have told her that she was now being foolish. NO one is perfect!
Women, we can have our ideal man; there isn’t anyone or anything preventing us from having exactly what we want. We can be picky, but we can’t be delusional. Of course, there is a fine line between picky and delusional, but as long as you state realistic attributes, go right ahead.
Ladies, it’s time for us to stop thinking that our shortlist is a long list and that we’re asking for too much.
So what do women want? We want what we want, the way we want it.
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

Yup, don’t ‘settle’!
I’m glad you told her there was nothing wrong with her list. I thought I was about to read a list that stated that the man had to be 8’2″ with a 10 figure job or something (LOL). What she’s asking for isn’t a lot.
Right!!!!! I thought her list was going to be insane and she was going to need a reality check. But her list was basic.
Right on! Nothing worse than settling ~ everyone ends up miserable 😖
That’s for sure!!!! Some Women settle and make a man their personal project.
Spot on! Love the thoughts.
Thank you KK🤍🤍🤍🤍
i have 5 on that list
Thank you 💖
They start out that way, meaning the list you shared, but sadly overtime they can often change.
I feel like the older we get the more the list changes.
Right!! Thank you Michelle!

My list list is burued too but I will remind him what was on it! LOL
This right here:
“We can be picky, but we can’t be delusional.”
I have a short list for the woman or man I seek, and I won’t deviate from it. I’ve seen what settling can get people. 🥺
Girl yes!!!! Stay true to your list! Settling is a pain in the ass!
Love the concluding thoughts of this fabulous piece: “We want what we want, the way we want it.”
Yes girl 😍😍😍 Thank you!!!!
Never settle, you deserve everything you wish for!
And then some!!! Stick to your list.
That’s why I’m single, I always stick to my list! Lol kidding 😂
I totally agree! I never settle for less than I deserve!
That’s exactly right!
Every woman, deserves to have it all! For her worth, a love so beautiful, her heart becomes the treasured!
Yes Warren I know you understand 💖💖
Nothing wrong with having a list.
I know that’s right!
I hear you!!! I WANT IT ALLLL!!!! – Di
Never settle…. Yes we want many things and there is nothing wrong with that. Marriage isn’t something you enter with the mindset of managing one another.
I know that’s right!!!!! I couldn’t agree more.
