List 8 traits about your perfect partner, and have to tell if they are male or female. Then tag 8 other people to do this.
Why only 8? What's so magical about that? I actually did a top 10 list on this on my old blog. But I'll go from scratch.
These would be female traits, although looking at Cinnamon’s list, some are simply universal.
1. Passion, as in sensual, intellectual, emotional and spiritual. Actually that's almost 4 things in one, isn't it? Okay, I stole and refined it from C's list.
2. Earthy. I'm weary of the "Ewww Factor" and someone trying to create a synthetically sterile environment. But this also has to do with how they relate to nature and natural things. Don't go all homeopathic and Wiccan on me, just recognize the natural order of things. Bugs, animals and plants have their place. Maybe a farm background would be beneficial. Yeah, someone who has been shit on and can still finish their chores before cleaning up.
3. Mastery of the Madonna/whore thing. Be respectful in public, but get freaky in the bedroom. Don't be afraid of being naked around me in private. Be a tease in public.
4. Physical appearance: non extreme and confident. Average suits me just fine. All women struggle with insecurities about their appearance one way or another and this is okay as long as she's confident with me and my assessment that she's #1 and God's gift to her gender. And to me. Save the shame talk for your neurotic girlfriends. I know you have moles, a pouch and thighs. I love them.
5. Acceptance. Nothing kills intimacy faster that a feeling that you will be criticized all the time. Or at least be willing to work with me on it where we can work with each other. This also means that bit in the serenity prayer: the courage of accepting things we can't change.
6. Perseverance and tenacity. Work through things instead of quitting and giving up. The first part of the serenity prayer: Lord, grant me the strength to change the things I can.
7. Kiss me deeply, passionately and often. And let me do the same.
8. Laugh with me.
While doing this, I actually came up with a companion meme of my own. Pay back is hell, isn't it Cinnamon?;-)
Okay, I'm supposed to bitch slap…er..tag 8 other people with this. Okay…
1. Dewdrop! Ooohh Dewwdrop! I'm sincerely interested in what you have to say on this. And I also know you will take it in the spirit its been given!LOL!
How about some different folks?
2. Summer Rose – Give us (and maybe CH) a clue as to what you're looking for.
3. So Gone – List the 8 and then let us know how BF stacks up.
5. Cassee – Need to get to know you better!
The last three don't have blogs of their own (yet), so they can answer here or start their own blogs with this one:
6. Broccoli Eater
8. Rob – the token male!
The good news is that you 8 will be exempted from my next round, unless you want to get in on it.
