Two girls (9 & 6 years old) wrote down a list of things to look for in a boyfriend. One of their mothers uploaded it to the internet. Did the girls miss anything important?

They should be your best friend.

Is she stupid or just dumb?!?! She's all proud & posting them like progress reports -WTH?!?! They are NINE and SIX for Pete's sake! They have yet to hit puberty! Hell, they have yet to hit the double digits! smh

The person should dress good in dates

02/08/14 4:41 pm

Yes...they missed the fact that they are WAY TO YOUNG to be once rend with boyfriends!!!

02/08/14 4:42 pm

Concerned....not once rend.

Based on the handwriting, a 9 & 6 didn't write this!!!

02/08/14 7:05 am

It looks like 9 year old handwriting to me

Must be a born again God-fearing Christian.
That was #1 on my list. ;)

Why would you want your boyfriend to have a neurological disease?

02/07/14 2:54 pm

no mention about STDs on that list...

Does that fall under "good maners"?

They missed the most important ones: Fully committed to serving God and his family. And those in need. And believes marriage is a lifetime commitment, and that sex should be saved for our wedding night. Is gentle, with a well-controlled temper.

They're 6 and 9 they don't know about sex

02/07/14 10:42 am

Looks like the missed "faithful".

02/07/14 7:04 am

They missed "sexually compatible."

Although that'd be weird if they did list it...

Does that mean only have sex for procreation?

I don't understand why so many people take issue with this. I think it's important to have high standards - whatever standards are important to each individual - for the person one is going to spend every day and raise children with.

These girls expectations are too high.

That's a great list, actually. What bothered me is: where the hell does mom get off posting someone else's list to the Internet? Even if she asked them first, it isn't her "story to tell." IMO.

02/08/14 12:58 am

That was my first thought when I read the question.

I've always thought I was lucky, but now I know for sure. My husband has all those things and more! Well, he's not a good cook but I like to so that doesn't count.

Make sure he isn't M-F trans. That would be awkward.

I fail at all of these. Also...why does a six year old and a nine year old want to date a boy that doesnt live with his parents?

02/06/14 11:39 am

They've gotta be ambitious.. Be out there on their own.

Anybody else thing they're are especially negative in their outlook regarding men?

tayen Illinois
02/06/14 3:25 pm

Not if they think this is possible. If they thought that this would be near impossible, it would be incredibly negative. Otherwise they just know what they want.

My favorite - doesn't have a weird last name.

02/06/14 4:54 am

I know! When I married my husband (who has a VERY unusual name) I told him I wasn't planning to change mine. He said I had to take the bad with the good. :). It's actually kinda fun to have a different sort of last name.

It saddens me that these girls have some higher standards than a lot of "fully grown women" I know.

trav Instagram, travisdover
02/05/14 10:23 pm

Fully grown women have to settle for what they can get. These girls can dream.

tcadez Minnesnowta
02/05/14 10:30 pm

And why is that? Why do we "have to settle?" I mean obviously you won't find someone with all aspects you admire, but if you love the person, is it really settling?

trav Instagram, travisdover
02/05/14 10:35 pm

It's true, women don't have to settle. They could find someone perfect or more likely be alone.

But yeah, I believe the definition of settle is when you don't get everything you want. Nothing wrong with that.

Just trying to be realistic

tayen Illinois
02/06/14 3:27 pm

Women think "what they can get" is far lower than it really is. Also, if we would raise our standards (reasonably), men could step up a bit. What they're looking for isn't out of the question.

Laurie2133 Rural Southwest

"Doesn't lie, has integrity and is faithful" are pretty important, but they are young. They will realize that soon enough I'm sure, based upon the thought they put into their list!

pcox104 Florida
02/05/14 11:04 pm

Doesn't tattle tale.. Makes me wonder what these girls are up to! Snitches get stitches!

02/05/14 8:50 pm

Pretty much!!! Some SOH users should take notes!! Lol

02/05/14 8:30 pm

Those are some pretty high standards.

They'll be single for a really long time. Cats might fill in some gaps.

tayen Illinois
02/06/14 3:34 pm

Better to be single than with the wrong person. What they want isn't impossible. Having high standards isn't a bad thing.

#24 is a MUST! You should marry someone who makes you laugh. If you cannot laugh together, the marriage will not last.
