100 (Yikes!) Qualities of My Ideal Partner

I wrote this list two years ago. My boss at the time was really into self discovery. I went to Landmark, found out I am an INFJ, and my spirit animal is a deer. I also met with a life coach. I stopped seeing him after a few sessions because he told me that I was being bad Sarah and needed a spanking. Before that, he asked me to create this list. I remember I sent it to my new boyfriend at the time and his response was, “Uh oh, you should probably know that I am a little terrified of spiders!” A befitting response for a ridiculous list?

Most “authorities” say to keep in mind 5 qualities. Here we go, in no particular order…as of today, I’m looking for:

  1. Tolerant of the fact that I apparently can’t count to 100
  2. Kind
  3. Open minded
  4. Man not a boy
  5. Makes me laugh
