Okay, since the only kind of man I can seem to attract is a crazed maniac who wants to sleep with anything that happens to have breasts and a high-pitched voice, I'd like to introduce a bit of information to all the men out there. What Amy Renee Catherine, the beautiful redhead with aquamarine eyes with little silver flecks in them is looking for in a man. Crazed sex maniacs beware...this guide does not inculde you.
1. There are certain physically attributes I notice...they are:
A) Height: You better be taller than me, that's all I'm saying.
B) Arms: Do you have them? Sorry any interested armless bolks, but....I have this thing about being held.
C) Vision: I find eyes attractive, but I can't say what about them. I can say that a guy with vision correction of some kind has increased his sexiness by at least 25.67%
2. There are certain things going on inside that brain that I really take note of...inculding:
A) Are you up on current events? I don't want to debate ever second of the relationship, but I would really adore it if you knew who Tony Blair was or something to that extent.
B) Do you read? And I mean newspapers (more than just the sports section) and books. It doesn't have to inculde any fine literature but knowing Poe, Hemingway, and Austen will get you extra points.
C)Are you well versed in a multitude of subjects? This is kinda the catch all here. Now, I don't expect my future boyfriend to know the periodic table by heart or quote Dickens, but it would be nice if he would laugh about my "Schrödinger's Cat Is Dead" t-shirt or do more then bob his head politely while I babble for hours about various historical eras.
D) The laugh brings us to D. Do you have a sense of humor? Humor is the most important attibute in a man, at least I think so. Also, I expect humor to be more than making jokes, I want a witty guy. Wit is so much better than just straight funny, especially if it's a satirical wit.
E) What's your code of morality like? Okay, guys from recent meeting...you're out on this one...though most of you were out on the "Do you read?" question. Now, I'm not entirely basing this on religion, but I want our moral kinds to slightly align. I was born and raised Catholic so there are things I strongly don't believe in, but I don't go with my church 100% on all things. A lot of it, such as strong sense of loyalty being important, comes from a very loving and large Italian family. (thus making always very important for you to like pasta, so that the relatives will not have you stoned in the city centre.)
F) Can you put up with my weird quirks? I'm not asking you to go be in a chorus line with me, or Hell, even go see me in a chorus line, if you really don't want to, but if you're gonna cringe at Classical music and completely flip out and go postal about going to museums of art, I will be disappointed. You don't have to love it, but there are some oddities to who I am and if you can't take the fact that I'm fascinated by leave prints on cement enough to take pictures of them, or that I love to eat ice cream in the winter, then you're better off not bothering. Also you have note the fact that I may try to take you dancing. I like dancing, but it'll be swing dancing or something and I'll have taught it to you first so we don't look like a couple of epileptic hamsters.
3. And this is most important: Do you have something you are passionate about? I don't care what it is. Do you love football? History? Art? Cinema? anything. If it gets your blood going and you caring then it's perfect. I don't know why this is important, but it's the single most important thing.
Think you can tolerate spending time with someone who lives everyday with an unceasing passion that just may cause them to eventually explode? I'd love it if someone out there (other than someone who's just really desperate to get laid) would apply for the job. I may just have to pass out this as a flyer..cause I'm an old-fashioned girl. And as much as people tell me too. I probably won't say a thing until he does first.
