    If he likes blondes and got with a brunette would mean there's something about you thats causing him so go against what is his normal routine, comfort zone, etc. Thats kind of huge compliment if he would do that. Even so most guys preferences aren't Deal Breakers.

    a lot of your requirements are quite frivolous. Do put this checklist on your dating profiles or send it over if guy asks for contact info? Has had more than 2 girlfriends or is a player? Well if he's a player Im sure he has more than two girlfriends...

    How many boyfriends have you had?

      I agree with your first paragraph, @kmg9150.

      I don’t go on dating profiles because I am old fashioned and not a frivolous person. If a man will try to woo me and pursue me relentlessly then I will marry him otherwise I will have an arranged marriage with a man who meets all my requirements because I am a very jealous person and can’t deal with a person’s past. Need a guy who isn’t for everyone.

    • Anonymous

      If a guy asks for my contact info I shut them down immediately and walk off. I am quite hard to get through to. I assume if he is asking me then he is asking everyone else too so umm I guess arranged will be the only option for me. 😂

    In my opinion you have unrealistic expectations. It’s good to create boundaries but I’m afraid with most of the stuff on your list you won’t find a guy like that or it would be like one in a million chances. Hey maybe you’ll be that lucky but no one is that perfect. You’ve created an image in your head that is just too unrealistic. At some part, if I were to be male, is a bit more judgmental than it is a preference because those are deal breakers for you as in you wouldn’t ever date them just because he has children or because he has been to clubs in the past or even because he isn’t a virgin. What guy these days around your age are still virgins? I can see your point on the low sexual body count but not the virgin part. You are only sabotaging your own dating life by these unrealistic expectations. Of course this is only my opinion from experience and not at all fact based.

    My deal breakers are:
    Signs of narcissistic behaviors such as compulsive lying, cheating, extreme selfishness, insulting me when they don’t agree or get their way, etc. everything is extreme with a narcissist.

    Aside from narcissism:
    Inconsistent communication (at LEAST talk to me twice a week)
    Emotionally unavailable
    Unkind to me and others
    Doesn’t want children (I have a child)
    Doesn’t want more children
    Won’t accept my child (not looking for a step father but that would be a bonus)
    Too jealous (small amounts of jealousy is healthy but not too much)
    Too controlling
    And mentally, physically, or verbally abusive (I’ve been in an abusive relationship and not willing to do it again)

    Do you see the differences between our lists?

    While for the most part I agree with your list it does seem a bit like you have a misunderstanding of what the gifts of the heart are that together comprise the process of unconditional love. There are 5 gifts of the heart i believe I have identified. We have been programmed since birth to think of a few of these as something that must be earned but this is incorrect. A gift is only a gift if it is free. Free of charge and free of condition. Note that the gift-wrap can be changed depending on what the situation and circumstances call for without changing the gift itself. Similarly the roles people will play in your life, and the manner in which you give the gifts are the domain of the mind. These are things that should be given much thought for however the gifts themselves are all heart in their making. No thought can go into the forging of these if they are to culminate in unconditional love. If you change or add one ingredient it is no longer the same recipe change or add one step and its a different dance.
    1:Acceptance-accept people for who they are as they are here and now. Noone can be who you think they are just as you cannot be whom someone else thinks you are. You will be you no matter who they think you are and they will be themselves. Your thoughts of them don't manifest into them.
    2:appreciation:appreciate who they are and the role they play in the world. For every bad there is an equal good. This is a realm of balance. Every action has an equal opposite reaction. What goes up must come down. There is an infinite number of possibilities but we are here and we're made under a divine intent with purpose. The name of the Earth is indicative of that purpose. Often when hiding truth in written form the first letter is moved to the end of the word instead so if you put the last letter in Earth back into the beginning you have Heart. Not necessarily proof but evidence for me of our divine purpose being unconditional love. Kids are born into this world doing this naturally. We program and teach them this is wrong and stifle it confuse them by teaching them to believe they know what love is when love is of the heart it is felt and made and shown not thought.
    3:Respect-respect people because they are people too. They have feelings and are also divine creations. Respect their power and ability. Be courteous
    4:Trust-trust everyone but don't trust them to be who you think they are nor to do what you think they should. This is folly and foolish. Trust them to be who they are and to do what they do. Don't trust that they will change because you are you. It does happen if they are open and ready with desire and the will to do so but trust that's nor the case.
    If you can give someone those 4 things you are loving them already. Gift 5 is unnecessary if you have the first four for others so this is for yourself. 5:forgiveness- forgive yourself your imperfections and mistakes. Learn from them get to know how strong you are give the other four gifts to yourself as well and you will know love unconditional. This doesn't mean you should be in a toxic relationship to have pure love. Like the giftwrap the roles someone plays in your life can change without changing your love for them. Only your expression of it needs to change befitting the role they fill.

    Being a heavy drinker was always a deal breaker for me and I do not drink at all. I think my current partner played down his drinking in the beginning, I told him it was a dealbreaker for me from the start. He also played down how political he is and far to the right 😒

      So drinking too much, doing drugs and being verbally abusive is morally synonymous with being shorter than you.

    • @wowop99266 it's a strong preference. The others are absolutes I won't deal with.

    Let’s see, a virgin at least 30 years old, a teatotaler, what fraction of 1% of men are we down to with just those requirements?

    Tell me how tall you are and I can see what percentage of men are between your minimum and 6’ 2”.

    • Anonymous

      I’m 5’7 and most men in my community are non drinkers anyway… it’s just the entirety of the list that is difficult to manage. I don’t want him to be exactly 6’2 - my preference is 5’10-6’ but as long as he is taller than me idm.

  • AsaKyo

    - Does drugs
    - Has a history of being a whore
    - Being morbidly obese (I'm talking like my 600 lb life big. Like you literally cannot get out of a chair.)
    - Hates traveling
    - Hates the outdoors in general
    - Has cheated in the past
    - Has a lack of respecting boundaries
    - Doesn't like cats (nah jk)
    - Makes me feel like shit about my appearance
    - Doesn't communicate with me about issues

    I can't be with a partner that expects to be monogamous with me. I don't believe in monogamy, so I'm not going to commit to one person. She has to know she's going to have to share me.

    1. Doesn't take relationships seriously, hot and cold, can't or won't commit.

    3. Doesn't show affection, acts embarressed to be seen with you in public

    4. Has a history of cheating

    5. Doesn't respect my faith in God/Jesus

    6. Aways stinky

    7. Flakey

  • Ladybugharp

    I think you should be kinder to yourself and start doing a little soul searching before diving deep into a relationship - the jealousy you mentioned you had, stems from insecurity/low-self esteem.

    Your list is very long; some requirements are sensible, but others are fetched and show a dis-trusting and defensive nature/behaviour.

    The impact of this; you’ll carry this behaviour over to your arranged marriage and completely do yourself a disservice by creating a miserable toxic relationship - where you’ll never be happy nor have a balanced, happy relationship because you’re unwilling to adopt a mature, attitude and compromise.

    Most men (i assume) will find this unattractive and resent you; worse off, you’ll be unhappy - which im sure you don't deserve!
