Hmmmm…great question! I’m sure this will come across to many as being far too picky, but here’s what’s most important to me…
He must be a practicing and knowledgeable Catholic
He must love God before anything else in his life
He must be trustworthy and unfailingly honest
He must be good with children and have a sincere desire to be a father to as many children as God chooses to give him
He must be my friend first - the physical stuff fades, but friendship and love last forever!
He must treat everyone with respect, and earn the respect of everyone who knows him as well
He must get along with my Dad, my brother, and my Uncles
He must have a stable career (I’m not saying he has to be wealthy, just that I would like for him to be good at whatever he does, and happy in his chosen field)
He must be supportive of me in my career (my ex-fiance was really insecure as I became more and more successful at work. I never quite understood why, but I’m not going through that again)
He must be able to deal with disagreements in a calm and rational manner, and willing to at least listen to my side no matter how wrong he thinks I am
He must have a good sense of humor
He must be open to travel, new experiences, and adventure
And most importantly He must LOVE football, especially college football. This really is non-negotiable as my Saturdays are pretty much consumed by this 4-5 months a year!
