My last boyfriend and I dated for 3.5 years. I have grown accustomed to a certain type of guy, so it's hard for me to settle for anything less. We just recently broke up (last weekend) so when my friends try to set me up, I am seldom pleased. Here, I'll tell you what I mean.
I am 5'11.5" so the first thing that appeals to me on a man is height. If I guy is not taller than me, It is a big turn off. I prefer dark hair, but am not "stuck" to that. A man I date has to be musical. Singing is a major part of my life. I have been a singer since I was 9, so a man I date must be able to sing and play an instrument. (I play piano). I also work out all the time, so I require someone who shares that interest with me. I don't mean he has to be a body builder or anything, but if I'm gonna kick my butt to make myself look good, I think he should too. I don't like a guy too skinny, yet not real big either.
I want a man who will support me emotionally and musically as I will do the same for him. He must be funny, caring, and a Christian. He must have ambition and a good work ethic. He has to respect my parents and me & can't be too pushy sexually. (When I feel it's time, he'll get it.)
He can't be a player or conceited and he has to want to spend quality time with me...not All the time, just QUALITY time.
Anyway, do I sound like I'm being too picky?

I wouldn't say you're too picky, but maybe you're standards may be a little to rigid:
Tall - good you're tall.
Musical - good; I play music; my fiance plays music; it's fun to have someone who appreciates music and shares that with you. My voice - let's put it this way you'd rather hear two cats f**king. If you found a guy with a good voice but didn't play well or vice versa, you should probably be a little flexible.
Works out - good; everyone should stay healthy. If you him attractive, that's what's more important than how many hours he spends at the gym. So, be a little flexible.
The degree of emotional and musical support - Definately be very flexible on that one. We love you, but we don't need to show it every minute of every day.
Funny, caring, and Christian - Be flexible with the funny and caring, and take him if he believes in God.
Ambition and good work ethic - If he has a job, an education, and somewhat successful. Take it.
Respect your parents - I don't know your parents, but good luck with that one.
Too pushy sexually - He should respect time; just not a whole lot of time. You're 22; he'll be the same age or older. Don't be a kid with the sex.
Maybe a little picky, but I don't think too picky. You might want to be flexible in some areas.0
