You know how when you are young you make a list of all the characteristics you want your future husband to have? (For some reason we did this in Young Womens when I was like 13. Strange) And then you have a separate list in your head that you create over the years that would look kind of ridiculous on paper.
My paper list probably went something like...
Nice, Loving, Smart, Hard working, Cute, good father,Spiritual ... you get the picture.
My secret list was something like this...
Super good looking and a Great dresser-surfer type, but in preppy clothes (got my east coast west coast thing goin on). Hilarious. Money Money Money Maker. Good Kisser. Gift giver, Spontaneous, Fun and creative, Edward Cullen esque(in the book, not the movie) Again- you get the picture.
And guess what I chose- Very smart,almost nerdy and very motivated guy. A mismatching, wears clothes 2 sizes too big, never surfed a day in his life kind of bloak. He is structured- not so spontaneous. He doesn't really do gifts and he is not the most romantic. I was his first kiss, soo... ya., His idea of fun is going to Barnes and Noble and browsing the finance section, I am usually laughing AT him and not WITH him. He is a genuinely nice,caring person. I haven't seen him be a father yet, but I am not too worried.
It is funny knowing now the guy I chose. I thought I knew exactly what I liked and what I didn't.
Now I find my nerdy husband in his professional attire dead sexy.
Throw your lists away girls. That's all I can say.
