    Well when I was younger I had this requirements. And as I grow older (in my early 30's now) I have lessed or lowered my idealism. Of course there are non-negotiables like
    1. Must be a Christian and is active in church (because some are backsliders and dont rarely go to church and have fellowship. (Here one who loves God should I say prioritize God over earthly things)
    2. Spiritually matured
    3. I prefer older man than me but now I guess as long as he;s matured its ok

    Let me hear yours
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I only have two requirements, but don't be fooled, this is far from as simple and straightforward as one might think:

    1. She has to be a converted person that's spiritually compatible with me.

    2. We both need to be convinced that God wants us to become more than friends.

    I told my mom the other day that I'll know I've found the right woman when I meet a girl who can keep a baseball scorecard.

    Seriously.

    Also, someone compassionate, educated and independent, with a faith that's balanced between authentic emotion and rational thinking. Preferably someone on the introverted side of the scale, like me, so that when I want alone time she doesn't freak out and think I'm "pulling away".

    An addendum to my previous post, she must:


    • Be intelligent.
    • Have a strong and proper grasp of the English language (in both spoken and written forms).
    • Have realistic expectations religiously, personally, vocationally.
    • Be steady and responsible; as in doesn't have a "great new idea for an Etsy store" every six days.
    • Not have any weird ideas about Christianity and in fact is well-read on theology and church history with a penchant for historic churches like the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, Presbyterian and Lutheran Churches.
    • Have a sane family who exercise healthy boundaries with each other.
    • Have a relaxed demeanor regardless of the environment, doesn't get worked up.
    • Have a dirty sense of humor in private, but is well-mannered, polite and respectful when situations call for it.
    • Not just "tolerate" baseball and football season, but actively engages in it - maybe even dominating my Fantasy Football League.
    • Does not dominate my Fantasy Football League.
    • BONUS: Wants to change the world via practical means, such as clean drinking water or other humanitarian missions, and comprehends how those things matter to our lives as Christ followers.


    Hey you asked. This is my ideal chick.

    My ideal partner would be a strong in their faith, gentle and sweet, but also strong. They need to ambitious, even if they do not know why or want they actually want to accomplish, not just "I'm content doing nothing". I would also like them to share the emotional and physical intimacy that I desire.

    Ummmm, there are probably lots of specifics that I won't bother to get into, but the main thing is a man that loves me, but loves God more. :)

    1. They need to take mutual trust and respect seriously. It's something that takes a long time to build up and is essential in my relationship to anyone.

    2. Shares some of the same interests (I can't ask for all, but that'd be really nice, too! :p)

    3. Is totally OK and comfortable with my sexuality, which isn't geared towards physically intimate contact with real people. Would be best if they had the same sexuality so we're on the same level entirely in terms of not being interested sexually in each other.

    If I had to list these on a scale of hardest to easiest to find, I'd have an incredibly tough time. They all have so far been really difficult to find. I am not expecting it to be easy because of my unconventional needs, but unfortunately that's kind of what I'm stuck with.
