Find Me A Man

Find Me A Man - Toni Braxton

I'm just a girl
That doesn't like the thought of being alone
I need to be loved and held real close
I'm the kind of girl
That needs to be caressed and kissed so soft, yeah
There's no better way to turn me on
I need a man who
Who's gonna treat me right
I need a man who'll be with me every night
So I've gotta

Find me a man
With sensitive eyes
One who understands
Love is stronger than pride
So I gotta
Find me a man
A sensitive mind
Not just any man
One of a kind

I know what I'm looking for, and I know
He's gotta be wonderful, cause I know
I am too beautiful, to settle for nothing less, ooh
I know what I'm searching for, yes I know
It's someone incredible, don't you know
That I won't give up until I've found the perfect man

Today's entry is kind of short and sweet.

Aside from the I'm just a girl part because well even though I'm gay and folks can tell it a mile away apparently (and I need to get over that...*LOL*) , those lyrics so mirror what I'm feeling at times.

My friend Huey was telling me that I should write down a list of what I want in a guy. Of course, there are things that you may have to compromise on...that's a given. But there should be three things that you absolutely must have in your perfect guy. And yes, I know there's no such thing.

I'm just going to list a few of my criteria at random. I'll narrow my top 3 another time.

1) He must be gainfully employed.
2) He should have his own apartment, condo, townhouse, whatever.
3) He must be between 5 foot 8 and 6 foot 4, weighing between 180-220 pounds.
4) He should be somewhere between 29 and 45.
5) He needs to have some common sense.
6) He should be considerate of other folks feelings.
7) His face should be pleasing to my eyes.
8) He must be a great kisser.
9) He needs to prove that he's into me without losing himself.
10) He should bring out the good qualities I have and strengthen the ones I lack.

Those are all I can think of right now. As Toni Braxton would say, I am too beautiful to settle for nothing less than the best.

I completely agree w/all of your criteria w/the exception of the weight. For me, if they are really tall like 6'3 - 6'4, they can go up to about 250. I like 'em thick ;-)

I can get with this list, because some gay men put some crazy MESS on theirs. " Fingers must next exceed four inches". I COULD NOT TAKE THAT ONE, AND THEN WHY THEY SAID IT.
