This is such a girly thing to do, but ladies have you ever sat down and made a list of all the qualities you wanted in a man? Basically, you’re trying to construct the “perfect” man on paper. I have to admit I did that shit in my early 20’s and I WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN. For those of you who’s ever done it be honest, did it help cause mines didn’t. Yo f*ck that list!!! *Brings it back to my inside voice* If you’ve sat down and wrote down a list then good for you. I hope the contents of said list doesn’t leave you disappointed, because I’ve found out you’re not gonna find everything you want in one person.
At 20 I felt like I was burnt out. I was seeing this guy off and on and it was starting to get on my last nerve. I was single again and wanted to get my ass back out there. I so didn’t want to experience what I did in my past relationship so I decided to make a list. I listed everything I wanted in a man down to the texture of his hair follicle. I was so damn proud of my list I read it over and over everyday. One night I went out to dinner with a few friends and met this guy. The minute I saw him my dumb ass got excited as hell. In the looks department he matched the things on my list. He was tall, the kind of hair I wanted, the n*gga even have the eye color I listed. I just knew this was my list guy. Over the past couple of weeks I started marking shit off of my list because he proved to be exactly what I thought I was looking for in a man. Fast forward to a damn month later. I realized that everything you want, yo ass sho don’t get. When you get something you wanted, you run the chance of getting something your ass didn’t. So all the things I had on my list, his bitch ass didn’t come near. I realized I was overlooking the major shit and was trying to make his ass “the one”.
So two of the things I had on the list was “a man who was honest, and can keep his d*ck in his pants*. Well one night I was at his apartment just watching tv. He told me he needed to leave the crib to pick his mom up from work. I’m understanding so we said our goodbyes, and I went over to my girl’s house. While chilling with her I felt like something was not right. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but something just wasn’t sitting well with me. So I asked my girl to come back over to his crib with me. Of course she came with me…you know an “in case shit” situation occured. So we got there and his car was sitting in the driveway. We left at the same time and it had only been like 15 min since we left, so I touched the hood and it was hot. We decided to tip toe our way on the porch because I just felt something was going on. I looked through the glass window and there I see his light bright ass sitting on the couch with some chick. Who looked like Donald Duck on 1982 crack by the way, but I digress. Now my ass got so mad, but I wanted to see what they were doing. They started kissing and shit and I guess I got pissed and knocked on the door. When he opened he was so shocked to see us. Do you know what I did? I went into his apartment said hi to the girl and my homegirl and I sat there and watched tv with them.
I know some of ya’ll thought I would go in there beat that dude a new asshole, but I didn’t. I was more embarrassed than anything. I put myself in this position over a f*cking list. I listed all the things I wanted to find in one person and when I found someone that matched at least two things of the vain things on there I ran with it. Instead of just hoping to meet someone I had things in common with and embodied what I was looking for, I made shit up and overlooked major flaws. So no… that list shit doesn’t work. I find that you fall in love with people you least expected to fever meet. Love doesn’t come in any particular shape or form…love isn’t vain!!! Love is how you feel when you’re with that person. How considerate you are to each other. Sure it’s great to find someone that has the qualities you look for, but not everyone is perfect. He can have a sense of humor, drive, and have good dick, but maybe he’s got the Brandy eyes where those jokers are sitting too far apart.Don’t count him out because he doesn’t fit everything on your list. Do you want to be that old bitch still holding onto that list just shooting every man that comes around because the things you feel that are important *looks*isn’t quite what you’re looking for in a man?
