I was imagining a conversation in my head the other day (what I seem to do to work things out), and I figured out the sort of 10 words or less answer to what are the essentials I need in a man.

Comfortable with emotions (his and partner's) and bodies (his and partner's).

Comfortable is a loaded word and I could go on and explain more, but I like the 11 word answer for now.

There's no way I could limit what I want in a man to 10 words, but that whole comfort with emotions thing is HUGE for me too. I am so bored and tired of guys who are emotional retards. One of the reasons I put up with so much other crap from the last guy, was because he was emotionally available and could tell me how he felt about things without getting all weird on me. That was so refreshing...he was also really funny and sweet and those are two more must-haves of what I'm looking for in a guy.

So your dream man is a La-Z-Boy recliner? Because I can get you that chair.

Churlita - I tried to winnow it down to the bare essentials, but I understand what you are saying.

Stray Cat - if only... sigh.

MRT - that'd be great [promptly posts notice up on freecycle that recliner will soon be available]

I like the idea of getting to the essence of things. I tend to overthink things, so getting focused like that really helps.
