New Year’s Resolution for Single Women

The Man List – New Year’s Resolution for Single Women

I found this online and thought it was funny.  I know some of us might at some point written a list of what we would like in a man.  I wrote a list on December 2008 because a coworker of mine said to do this before the end of the year.   I thought it was lame then, but I still wrote it, don’t ask me where the list is at, but I kinda remember what I wrote, and I’m kinda happy I did, because it gives you that goal to go after, something to look forward to.

Lists are good so you don’t end up settling for any guy, you gotta have standards!Have any of you written a list?  Do you revise it every year? Do your man expectations change after time?

DISCLAIMER: the list below is not my list:
