After spending seven years in the dating world, I finally have a criteria.
Criteria that isn't just, "dark eyes, dark hair, has a sister and is somewhat musically inclined."
I should've done that a long time ago.
But I guess when you don't love yourself, you feel you don't deserve to be picky.
And it's not even being picky. It's having standards because you love yourself and you don't think you should settle.
My person will:
+ Have opinions. And not all of them have to line up with mine. I like debates anyway.
+ Be passionate about something. Preferably, be an activist.
+ Like to go out AND stay in. Variety is good.
+ Be ready for and open to anything. But still have their limits of course, because we all do.
+ Appreciate and support my talents and interests.
+ Like that I have zombie dreams.
+ Not mind that I love Paramore and High School Musical and Gossip Girl.
+ Encourage me to be my best and let me know that it's okay to sometimes be at my worst.
These are things I believe to make up an actual long-lasting relationship.
Hell, all of my close friends are up to par, why shouldn't a romantic interest be as well?
