I have discovered what it is I want. I used to be attracted to men who were “damaged”, “broken” in some way, like myself. I was attracted to men who needed saving, and needed someone to carry them.
But, I’ve relalized, I no longer want that. I am attracted to men who are artistic, creative, passionate, different, unique. I am also attracted to men who are noble, strong, dignified, gallant. Men who are honorable. Men who have a strong purpose, strong sense of self, men who have goals they strive to achieve. Men who have respect for women and themselves, men who believe in equality and goodness in the world.
A man who is creative, passionate, honorable, and kind, is the ultimate dream. And funny would just be an added bonus.
I am sure I have described a man who does not actually exist. But it’s nice to hope that maybe, just maybe, he does.
