*What I’m Looking For In A Date

I’ve talked quite a bit recently about being single, my foray into online dating and more than a few disasters. I think I’m a bit too nice, to be honest-I will chat away to someone as I don’t want to seem nasty, but really I should step away as soon as I realise someone isn’t for me. Maybe the way to do that is to decide what I’m actually looking for, and what better way to do that than to write it down here? Here’s my thoughts on what I’m looking for in a date. (And if you’ve not read my other dating posts, what are you waiting for? There’s some brilliantly terrible stories in there)

Obviously looks aren’t the most important thing, but I do need to be attracted to someone I’m dating. I really value someone who can make me laugh, though. That and someone who can teach me things-who has hobbies and interests I know nothing about, and who wants to tell me about them. Someone who wants me to learn about the things that are important to him, and who wants to learn about the things that are important to me. Ideally, someone who has enough patience to deal with me losing track of who’s who in every single film, who wants to sit through numerous box sets with me and doesn’t mind training to be my Instagram husband. He’ll love to travel as much as I do, he’ll want to buy a house, have children (eventually-not next week, obviously) and get married, oh and he’ll love dogs. I’ll look weird if I have to go up to dogs and cuddle them on my own! And he’ll be happy to come and do food reviews with me, of course. It’d be a big waste otherwise.

I do worry that I won’t meet this perfect person, but I like to think there’s someone out there for everyone. What about you-have you met the right person?

    Welcome to my world… I have done the whole ‘be nice and sit there for another two hours talking’ even when I know I do not like the guy but I am more cutthroat these days. My gut has never proved me wrong so far and if it says don’t go, it is generally right. I know I am looking for the impossible, but I also know I will find him one day 🙂 Get yourself out there and enjoy, don’t dwell too much about the little things… my list of ‘wants’ has reduced dramatically over the years… now I am simply searching for a guy who can spell and hold a conversation… that’s still quite a tall ask! :/

    I do think that it’s always good to know what you’re looking for, I was quite picky when I was online dating and thankfully it paid off x

    I am very picky fated to be honest, I tried being nice and didn’t work out too well for me. Now I know what I want and not wasting time on time wasters. Though my mother keeps telling me to stop searching for Jesus on earth aka perfect guy ‍♀️

    It has been such a long time since I was dating, I hated the whole dating game if I am honest. I met my partner when I was least expecting it via work and on paper he was not at all the type of person I would normally date but somehow we just work x

    I never really dated anyone when I was younger, so missed all the perils of going on dates. I got lucky and met my partner when I was 17 we were friends for a while and made it official when I was 20 x #bloggerclubuk

    I met the right person when I was least expecting it. In a Japanese night class, of all places!

    I have no experience in dating whatsoever, but I do believe that when the times right you will x
