New love rules
I drove to Narrabri and back this week which was B.O.R.I.N.G.
Subsequently, I had plenty of time to think about Life (caps deliberate).
I think I’ve figured out what I’ve been doing wrong in the love stakes and have now devised the following criteria for selecting a mate. Read on, dear friends, for the the sort of wisdom that can only strike a person between Baan Baa and Boggabri.
Does this person meet my emotional needs or do I always feel like I am scrambling for attention, affection and affirmation? Am I the only one communicating? Am I doing all the inviting, organising and overall effort effort-making?
Is this person smart, interesting and creative? Are they going to teach me anything? Introduce me to new ideas? Have the intellectual rigour to debate their position?
Can this person hold their own socially? Will they get along with my friends and family? Will they be the life (or the death) of the party? Do they have their own established social network?
Does this person care about how I’m feeling? Do they care about making me happy? Is sex a one-dimensional experience or something more? What are their views about sexuality? Are they draconian or liberal-minded?
I have no idea if it’s even possible to find someone who can meet all of these criteria but dammit, I am going to try.
What are your love rules? Have you had to change them or install updates?
