21 Things I Want In A Lover

Hey ladies!

The other day when I was reading comments on My A~Z List, I thought about what exactly I want in a lover (Thanks Deva you got me thinking!). Talking about the traits in a lover, I cannot help quoting the one below. Again it is going be another unoriginal post of me... But anyway! Happy reading! If you would like to check Deva's A~Z List: Here it is. It is really a good one!

21 Things I Want In A Lover
By Alanis Morissette

Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
Do you have a big intellectual capacity but know
That it alone does not equate wisdom?
Do you see everything as an illusion?
But enjoy it even though you are not of it?
Are you both masculine and feminine? politically aware?
And don't believe in capital punishment?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that I prefer

Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that
Loving someone can actually feel like freedom? are you funny?
la self-deprecating? like adventure? and have many formed opinions?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that I prefer
I figure I can describe it since I have a choice in the matter
These are 21 things I choose to choose in a lover

I'm in no hurry I could wait forever
I'm in no rush cuz I like being solo
There are no worries and certainly no pressure in the meantime
I'll live like there's no tomorrow
Are you uninhibited in bed? more than three times a week?
Up for being experimental? are you athletic?
Are you thriving in a job that helps your brother? are you not addicted?...curious and communicative...

This song... I do not have anything more to say. My thumbs and toes all up for what it says. But are the standards way to high? Perhaps should we ask the same questions to ourselves, too?

Yes we do set our standards high. They should be high.

Oh... one thing that you may not know about Alanis.
She shares my birthday. :o)

Wishing you all a happy ending/ beginning!

Much love,


Ana from far away! said...

the standards always should be high, because when you stop being strict about that, any a-hole will approach you, and you might fall... big time

Lisa said...

Love that list...and I completely agree: Ladies, keep your standards high! :)

I think that everyone should have expectations and I agree with Ana from far away, cos if you go down with your needs towards your guy, you will get an asshole.

A funny thing that I realized that the expectations are different received depends on a place you live. so don't come down with your expectations until you move to Canada and then maybe someone will make you a surprise!
Believe me I know what I'm saying. In Poland most men were/are afarid of me, here only some of them, the rest respect me and admire me and that's really nice. /p.s. I was talking about normal guy with a brain!!!/

best of love. deva.

@ Ana,

I agree. The standards should always be high. And I believe there should be someone there for me... For all of us!


Fran said...

@ Lisa, :o)

Yes! That list is awesome. I guess I can keep going. There could be a 1001 things list in the matter.

Have a great day!

Fran said...

@ Deva! :o)

I agree with what you said: people/ guys would be sort of afraid of you because you are cool, and you are "far away" and "inaccessible"- you know what I mean...

I will see if the landscape is any good in Canada although I do not know what it is like over there! :o) I'll see! And there should be some follow-up reports from me about it I suppose! Haha...

Best of love,
