The Perfect Man

I’ve been tagged by Naomi from Organic Motherhood with Coolwhip to describe my perfect man. To be honest, I am happily married to the Big Guy for 11 years now and the idea of being single again is one that is so far removed from my brain that I’m pretty sure that I’ve forgotten how to do/be it at all. Not to mention, I’d probably rip my hair out going through that process again.I was young the first time.I was hot. It was easy:)However, before I was married to my Big sexy, world traveling, soul mate of mine I had much different criteria.I think hot, a pulse, and a bad attitude were the only requirements. Let’s leave it at the fact that I kissed more than my fair share of big, nasty, wart ridden, bad attitude having toads before finding my prince.

And so, without further ado, I will give you my list of qualifications for the perfect man. Obviously, the position is currently and permanently filled, but I do have two sisters and a plethora of female family and friends who would love a man who meets these criteria.

1. Must live in the same zip code.Long distance and traveling can no longer be tolerated on any level. I have had my fill.
2. Must love me unconditionally and blindly.I understand that there are other women out there, but you must never acknowledge their existence in my presence.
3. Must be willing to listen to my narcissistic and incessant ramblings about my blog, why my children are geniuses, how I am always right.Must be able to tolerate my acute case of verbal diarrhea that I have developed as a result of having children and being a SAHM. I am serious, you will be hit with a barrage of words upon your arrival..every day.
4. Must be ready and willing to please me at any moment, as my time is very valuable and you can only get in when I can fit you in.Must also be willing to not get offended if I am too exhausted to reciprocate:)
5. Must be willing to inform me when ‘Pedro’ is making an appearance, so that I can wax, as I am too busy to notice such things as facial hair because of the hecticness that is my life, plus all mirrors in my house are smudged with tiny hand prints.
6. Must know how to cook,bake birthday cakes, take out garbage, drive a riding mower,do laundry fold laundry,put away laundry, change the toilet paper roll and pick up your socks.
7. Must think I am a sex goddess even when I am being a raging hormonal bitch, am gestating a giant fruit of your loins, or have doubled in size due to water retention.
8. Must be willing to simultaneously film, photograph, hold my hand,look deep into my soul and tell me I am beautiful when I am giving birth.
9. Must not be afraid of a beautiful woman who has a Ricky Ricardo laugh and pees when she sneezes or laughs too hard..
10. Must be willing to laugh at life, cry with me, hold me when I am sad, and love me like you did back when we were in college….before gray hairs, love handles, breasts that fed, and child induced exhaustion set in.
11.Must be willing to take over all parenting duties the moment you walk in the house.
12.Must be adorable to look at and not make annoying sounds when breathing, sleeping, chewing, or talking.
13.Must be willing to reciprocate all that is given to you by me, emotionally, physically, and other!
14.Must like to cuddle on cold nights and go a little Prodigy Firestarter on me, when the occasion dictates.
15.Above all else, must head over heels love crazy, hot tempered, exotic, passionate, mouthy ME!

Thank God, I already found the Big Guy.I never knew I was so picky until I realized he was everything I never knew that I always wanted ( see aforementioned list). Please, tell me what your perfect man would be.Tag your it!

Awesome list. I'm saving it to show the Fiance where he's failing. ; )

It's true. I'm so glad I don't have to date anymore…

I don't know if I ever had any major qualifications. I just wanted someone to love me unconditionally, even if I got fat. Which I did. So, yeah I guess that means I had low standards. The good news is that I ended up with someone even more fabulous that I could have hoped for.

Hi, I couldn't resist the subject. Its an interesting read, my wife probably feels about the same way. Thanks all points noted.

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this!!! You are so hilarious and so awesome. Your hubs is WAY lucky to be with you. But I'm sure he knows that. My favorite? "Must think I am a sex goddess even when I am being a raging hormonal bitch, am gestating a giant fruit of your loins, or have doubled in size due to water retention." AMEN!

@Anna,
I think its a great list.it covers all the bases.

@Gini,
I am sure you are too hard on yourself and I am betting he got the better end of the bargain!Hugs!

@Hakim,
Take note my friend..it could save your life:)

@ OMWC,
Yes, yes he is! But I am equally lucky to have the Big Guy! Yes, the "must" you quoted..that is a deal breaker for me:) Don't really think too many men will fit the bill!Love ya!

I love this. Our wants are quite similar. 🙂

We have the same list, because we are both totally rad. My fav "Must be willing to listen to my narcissistic and incessant ramblings about my blog, why my children are geniuses, how I am always right." Amen sister.

I agree – you do sound rather picky! Ha, ha! 🙂 Good thing you have the Big Guy.
