When I was 18, my hairstylist told me to make a list of traits that I wanted in a mate. She swore that by putting the list onto paper and out into the universe, I was more likely to attract someone who was right for me. I was skeptical, but after a string of not-so-great boyfriends, I decided to give it a shot. Did it work?
Not at first. But a few weeks before my 19th birthday, Travis and I started dating. And, well, the rest is history!
Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find that list (though I know it’s somewhere). But I remember some of my must-haves (in no particular order):
1) He MUST be taller than me.
2) He has to make me laugh.
3) He has to like kids (and want some of his own one day).
4) He needs to be intelligent.
5) He has to be honest.
6) He should have a close relationship with his family.
There were more, though I don’t remember them all now. Fortunately for me, Travis meets every criteria on the list (and then some!) And it’s because of this that I wonder whether putting something out “into the universe” actually does work…
Have you ever made a list of traits that your future partner must have? What’s on it? If you’ve made a list, have you find a guy who meets many (if not all) of the criteria? Do you think that creating something like this really works? Tell me what you think in the comments!
