Divorce, Dad and Dating

Divorce, Dad and Dating are three words that don’t mix very well. After being married for 11 years, I have a pretty good idea of what I want and don’t want. So, I’ve been making a list of preferences based off past experiences.

Now, I don’t want this list to doom me into being eternally single, so I want to be clear about something. Some of these “preferences” are serious. Some are very shallow and some are just silly. These are in no particular order.

I will go on a date with you if you meet the following “preferences”. Eh, I’ll probably go on a date with you even if you don’t:

  1. Single
  2. Sophisticated
  3. Self reliant
  4. Classy
  5. Smell like a girly girl
  7. Doesn’t have kids
  8. Wants kids
  9. 25 yrs old – my current age(35)
  10. Doesn’t think she da shit; knows she da shit!
  11. Makes me laugh
  12. Laughs at all my jokes
  13. Always horny(typical man preference)
  14. Wears high heels to bed
  15. Has a hobby
  16. Knows how to cook something that doesn’t come in a box and done in 12 minutes
  17. Believes in God
  18. Honest
  19. Has a political opinion
  20. Can pull a hook out of a fishes mouth
  21. Likes to drink beer
  22. Gets excited about a football game
  23. Spontaneous
  24. Doesn’t plan every second of your day
  25. Can drive downtown without freaking out
  26. Tech Savvy
  27. Gets along with my friends
  28. Has her own friends
  29. Doesn’t like country music
  30. Doesn’t make everyone else’s problems her own problems
  31. Doesn’t smoke cigarettes
  32. Phone number starts with (303) or (720)
  33. Doesn’t overanalyze and dissect everything you say and/or do!

*This list is fluid and subject to change in a moments notice.
