Owns a beautiful old estate in some rolling English countryside or something, inherited from his entirely deceased family (no in-laws to deal with), where we can throw garden parties when we tire of city life...which he only just found out about because he didn't know his insanely wealthy dead relatives and was raised quite humbly so there's not to much of a class-based culture clash between us, and he never forgets where he came from, and we sometimes have Abba dance parties and we can afford to fly first class when we take the kids to visit their grandparents, and we work because we want to not because we have to, and...

What?

#21?

Also, taking #11 into account, tsq's dislike of "woo-woo" fools would seem to preclude dating Ric Flair, amirite?

I got shot down at #4. I would go to a bar and drink myself into a stupor, if only I could find a way to climb onto the bar stool...

Re: list of boyfriend rules

#6 and #8 are also out...6 for obvious reasons, and 8 because I personally have a voice that sounds like the bass part from "Sussudio" and/or a 45-rpm single played at 33.

Re: list of boyfriend rules

Now that's what you call a list, tsq!

On a serious note, I think a lot of people don't realise that a long-lasting relationship needs a lot of compromise and constant maintenance. You never stop working on it, or it will die, no matter how long you've been together.

macloudt, married for 18 years yet living in a semi-detached house rather than a vast inherited estate

Edit: Stoo, my husband also wouldn't get past no.1, but then neither would I.

I drive, but my husband doesn't. Also, he does the gardening. Ah, I miss the Red Green show.

Re: list of boyfriend rules

If I had to make a list that would be a quite short list : someone I can tolerate. It's perfectly vague and it's really very limitative. That's certainly why I'm single

Actually, that's the most realistic list you could have.

My list is basically "Be a good person." Everything either follows from that or is negotiable.

Re: list of boyfriend rules

I'm quite surprised that, in the whole list, there's not one mention of cooties.

While the list itself may not be very practical, the cuteness factor is off the charts.

That's okay. These days good handwriting is overrated. This coming from someone who has exceptional handwriting.

Sounds about right.
