A wide sea of eyes…

A list of things I want in my next relationship

Two: A sense of humour

There is nothing more attractive that a guy who is funny.  Seriously.  It’s easy to overlook a bit of weight or receding hair if the dude makes me laugh.  Take Kevin James for example (Yes, the Mall Cop, the King of Queens, that’s the one).  He is sweet and funny and that is damn cute.


Adorable right?

When I looked for a picture of this guy I had a hard time finding one in which he wasn’t smiling.  I have a thing for teeth too but there’ll be more on that later…

There are different kinds of humour like there are different kinds of intelligence.  Check out this article


I don’t like a guy who finds humour at the expense of others – the prankster, someone who puts down others, sarcastic and mocking humour which is more popular in the media these days.  You can be funny without being nasty.

And I don’t like clichés or corny – how boring!   I want to scream, “Get some new material already!”

I do like a dash of silly, a bit of self-deprecation, some irony and a great story.  My humour is very situational – in the moment.  I like stupid comedies – done well.  I love witty one liners – a joke that catches me by surprise.

I believe that you can be the owner of more than one type of humour.  I am looking for that comedy cocktail that will keep things fresh and hilarious.

Although I am not about to hit the comedy circuit myself, I do make it a point to make someone laugh everyday.  So I want to be in a relationship where our sense of humour completely gels.

When we are old, fat and too tired to get off the front porch, I want to be able to laugh until our teeth fall out.  Then laugh harder because…well…our teeth fell out!


One: A Giver

Signs that he is a giver:

  • he donates to a charity
  • he volunteers
  • he stops to help people
  • he makes himself available to family and friends
  • he does nice things for strangers without telling anyone about it
  • he shares
  • he listens
  • you feel like you can count on him
  • he has a lot of friends (Givers tend to be the kind of people who attract others)

If a man gets a tattoo of “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein that has to be a good sign doncha think?

It is time for me to find a giver.  I am not looking for material things but someone who has a giving spirit.  It’s so important to me that I decided to make this characteristic the first post on this blog.  If both people in a relationship are givers then that is bound to create something magical.
