    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.

    Gul Re'jal is suspecting she's on the wrong space
    The latter part would create a serious incompatibility between us ;)

    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.

    The list is half in jest. It's up to him to figure out which half is which.

    My jesting half is always the bottom half.

    Why? What did I say? :shifty:

    You know if i had a partner, I don't think I would mind if she earned more than me. We are after all supposed to be living in the 21st century.

    I have a few more likes than that, but in general I tend to agree. I used to be a lot more picky, but that didn't really help me find someone; it just made me unpleasantly judgmental. :lol: I still am, of course, but to a lesser extent. ;)

    I don't have a list. I think I am pretty easy to get along with, my reputation here notwithstanding. :lol:

    Obviously the cats are the most important.

    If I was dating and a man told me he "hated" cats (people do say this) I would get up and walk out. Indifference, okay. Prefer dogs, okay. Hate cats? No.

    I was doing well right up until you listed that one requirement, and then I was out.

    well, there's always room for improovement. ;)

    Also, having a perfect mate might backfire by making oneself feel imperfect.
    you don't happen to have a younger brother or a spare clone, do you? *plugs in halo*

    I'm propably as picky as the girls. Here are my 10 commandments for BFs (not sorted by importance) :

    1) has perfect manners under all circumstances
    2) respects everyone
    3) has a decent income and ideally a house with garden in a quiet area (I must think of my old age, after all!)
    4) needn't share my political views but must by no means be right-wing (that's a conditio sine qua non!)
    5) must be a non-smoker
    6) should not drink alcohol (at least not so much that he gets drunk)
    7) must be friendly to animals
    8) must be intelligent
    9) should act environmentally friendly
    10) must be honest (no white lies!)

    Don't give a shit..
    Nope, some people don't deserve respect (racists etc..)
    I have my own house so I don't care but I can see how this might be a strong preference for some. However "quiet area" is not my thing.
    Totally agree.
    I don't care, but if you do smoke do it outside kthx.
    Don't care, but please don't be either an alcoholic or an AA devotee.
    NO irrational domestic pet hatreds.
    Don't give a shit about this.
    Yeah. No spin, no bs, no soft sell, hard sell, any sell. Bald is beautiful baby.

    Wow, just like "RJDiogenes." :rommie:

    "They say it's wrong to generalize, but it's something I really enjoy." :rommie:

    All circumstances... except when I'm alone.

    Well, I respect everyone's Rights, but individual respect has to be earned.

    In good financial shape, but currently residing in the city; the intention, though, is to move to the country upon retirement.

    I'm about as far from Right Wing as it gets. I'm also about as far from Left Wing as it gets. :rommie:

    Oh, yes.

    I do enjoy the occasional Twisted Tea.

    I love animals. :adore:

    Me so smart.

    I'm even biodegradable.

    I would never, ever, ever tell a lie to spare someone's feelings. :angel:

    Todays Trek BBS top tip: matches. One thing we learned when me, my brother and my cousin where all three bachelors with not the best eating habits in the world (mine and bros habits have since considerably improved) living together, we sort of realized that it was inevitable that someone would let one off when we where hanging out on evenings in front of the TV. Hence, we learned to keep matches on the table. Whenever someone expelled some gas, he'd light a match and then extinguish it a moment later to cover the smell. Works wonders and saves your nose.

    I'll probably do a list tomorrow, just for the hell of it.

    I thought that was a pretty good list, given the ages of the writers!

    My own list would be:

    kind to humans and animals
    respects others
    not right-wing politically
    good hygiene
    no smoking, no recreational drugs, minimal alcohol

    Speaking as one who has actually heard your voice in real lifeā€¦ there is nothing wrong with it!
