New Dating Rules

I'm on a self imposed dating hiatus.  I've written about some of the crap that I've dealt with and the games that guys play, so I decided focusing on me is more important than dating.  While I'm no opposed to going out with someone now if I happened to meet anyone, I'm not actively looking.  I've created a checklist for dating (for me) to determine if a guy is worth my while.  That may seem callous and cold, but life is too short to waste it on dumbasses and I've already done that.  So, here is my list

  1. Single:  You would think this is automatic if a guy is dating.  Turns out, not so much.  So, they have to prove to me that they are single.
  2. Employed:  I spent 25 years with an unemployed "man."  I'll never do that again.  It's demoralizing for both parties.
  3. Age:  My cut off is technically 45, but I'll entertain down to 43 if he is mature enough.  This means high school class of 1989 at the latest.  Younger than that is a booty call.
  4. Make same or more money than me: This might make me sound like a gold digger, but honestly, a man that makes less than the woman usually (I said usually) can't handle it.  He feels emasculated and it leads to problems.
  5. Genuine:  Seriously, don't play games with me and don't lie to me.  It's that simple.
  6. Spiritual:  I didn't think this would be that important, but it is.  I find that it is important to have a faith based relationship.
  7. Attentive:  By all means, both parties need to have outside interests, friends, and things to do. I don't need him to be constantly focusing on me, but he has got to pay attention.  By that I mean, know what I'm going through, talk to me about my day and about his day, do little things like flowers, dinner, movies, clean my car, etc. 
  8. Local:  Pretty simple-- a long distance relationship just doesn't work.

 So, those are my 8 little rules for dating me.  Any takers?  LOL!

Until next time, much peace and love.
