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 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 missed "sexually compatible."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

"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!

Those are some pretty high standards.

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

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