Qualities In A Mate//Fix My Relationship

Morning Cyber Family!

How often do you consider your values/standards when considering a mate?  Is this a no negation type of situation?

Sometimes we can’t help who we’ve grown attached to. Maybe this person completely took us by surprise, and now we are left with a list of qualities that we believed we needed in a potential mate, but isn’t as necessary as once before.

I strongly believe that it’s important to have an idea of what you’re looking for. You need to be comfortable enough to know what you’d be willing to put up with. Even if you’re new to dating and haven’t figured out the specifics yet…you can eventually decide then what comprises you are willing to make for love.

I normally live a pretty structured life. What I mean is that I have an idea of how my weeks will look like. This helps keeps me grounded. Relationship wise, I could not be happier. The both of us had general standards that we used to make the decision of whether or not we’d even be interested in one another long-term. Initially, we had similar plans for the future, enjoyed one another’s company, and were and continue to provide support, love, and laughter for one another.

In honor of the Fix My Relationship series, a few people were able to provide me with some feedback on what it is they look for when considering entering into a new relationship.

Here’s the results from the mini interview I completed with those willing bodies. 

In my mate, I am looking for someone who is…

*God fearing, secure (don’t want nobody that’s not confident in themselves), comfortable to be around, funny, intelligent, goal oriented, and attractive.

*1.Intelligent (and by that I really mean insightful ) 2. Beautiful 3. Moral 4. Loves black people and culture. The 4th things is important because I may make personal/ career sacrifices to help black folk, and I would need a significant other who was cool with that.

*God-fearing, family oriented, has good morals, a job/career (LoL), has goals set for himself, someone who has a sense of humor! Someone who is spontaneous! Someone that I know can help me grow as a Christian! Someone I can talk to and confide in…The list can go on and on lol!!

*I would like for my mate to be supportive, trusting and family oriented with an ambitious never settle attitude. I’m a guy who wants to build an empire.

*Believes in God, well-mannered, smart and intelligent, has goals, respectful, humorous, handsome, well-kept (dresses nice).

*Takes a while to figure out the right formula. After a lot of trial and error…I think I have a pretty good list. I look for someone who on the same page with education and career goals. I look for someone who is intrinsically motivated to succeed not just get by. I look for someone who treats me well and makes me laugh. Someone who I can bet self around. If I’m not comfortable enough for you to see me without mascara and wearing a headcap…you’re not the one lol! I’m looking for someone who I can have a conversation with, not just a physical relationship. Someone who has similar interests and family desires. Preferably someone who is physically fit. Race doesn’t matter.

How likely are you to stand by your ideal qualities in a mate?

Did your current mate match your pre-determined list?

On My Nomination…

Hey Everyone,

I was nominated twice (in less than a week) for the Liebster award. This just means that some very lovely blogger friends of mine have taken the time to connect with beginning bloggers such as myself.  The award was created to give recognition to the nominee and thank them for their inspiration to others. I love this because it helps build relationships…something that I am already passionate about. So, thank you Cheyanne and Kerril for thinking of me :-).

I know there are specific rules for accepting this award (answer 11 questions, nominate 5 more bloggers), but I’ve always been a little bit rebellious lol. So, I plan to answer a few questions from each person who has so graciously nominated me. Also, I’ll keep my eye out for awards in the future, to be able to spread love and support all of you as well.

Questions:

1.What do you love most about yourself?

I love that I am able to remain optimistic (on most days) and find the positives about my day.  I remind myself constantly that I have wonderful family, friends, a boyfriend who still considers me a gem…I’m on cloud 9!!

2.Are you good at resolutions?  

How do you stay motivated to get them done?

I crave resolutions!! I admit that I feel somewhat unsettled when I leave a task partially completed. It’s a constant reminder that I don’t need to have. I’m motivated to have a clear head, so this is what keeps me pushing forward.

3.Where would you love to travel?

I would love to visit Paris. Anyone who knows me understands my fear of flying. I’m uncomfortable being on a plane for that long…but this is a sacrifice that I am willing to make. Visiting Paris is on my bucket list.

4.What is your favourite movie of all time?

Grease!! Hands down. I love everything about this movie. I love musicals, and I know every word to each song.

5.What is your favourite kind of music?

I love R&B.  Ne-Yo is my favorite artist.  So, if he changed genres…I’m sure I would too. 🙂

6.Do you have kids?

Zero. But, one day I hope to have like 6 of the little rugrats…lol. Ok, maybe like 3. I have five siblings, so I appreciate the relationships that can form from bigger families.

Here are the official rules if any of you are interested in participating in this Liebster award.

Link back to my site (or whomever’s), answer whatever questions you want to answer, nominate more people and create new questions for them.

Thanks again ladies!

Happy Connecting!!
