In a perfect fairytale the story of my man would be tall and handsome, bald or shaved head and light eyes. He would have a boat to take us out fishing in on every whim we wanted. A bike to whisk us away for that wonderful weekend of just us. He would have a 4x4 truck or jeep to go mudding in for a night of fun. He would like to get dressed up for a night out dancing. Someone who is willing to swing. He would have enough ambition in life to have a career that he enjoyed and was not living in the negative paycheck to paycheck every week broke and not able to do anything. He would not have a criminal record to have to hide from. He would accept me in all my faults without question as I would his. He would be playful at times and know when you have to be a responsible adult and get the job done. Be open and honest and upfront about everything. Someone to encourage each other in their endeavors be it a job, a relationship, a struggle, or even to get out and exercise together and eat right.
Now I do realize this is a fantasy dream, and I am not demanding a man to be my fairytale by any means. But if this fairytale life sounds like something you strive for then maybe give me a shout. I am not going to change a man, nor do I want someone to change me. I just see I have been a single mom and raising two wonderful young men, that its getting closer to the time of that empty nest and this mom is ready to begin a new chapter in life. I’m not seeking perfection, just one that works well for me – we all deserve to be happy.
