The Fruitless Search Meme

Since Kristine was either too lazy to pick up the phone and ask me this question…or I was too lazy to remember to bring my phone around with me to pick up her call, she decided to tag me with the meme. Although there are rules to this, being that I couldn’t be stuffed to follow them, consider yourself tagged if you would want to be tagged…except for you ChickyBabe, you might have written something like this before but since it’s not like I can just pick up the phone and call you to ask, I hope you try on this meme for size. So let’s get down to it.

Edrei’s 8 Qualities In A Female Lover:

  1. Smart:
    Now I don’t mean you actually have to be a part of mensa, it’s just that you’re smart enough to figure things out every now and again. Put two and two together and probably come up with some creative solutions to problems that we face. To me, it is the strongest criteria and the most important because it determines these next few.
  2. Practical:
    Goes along well with smart. Anyone who puts their needs ahead of their wants is a person that can get the job done no matter what the situation. For a girl to do this is not only uncommon, it’s a girl who will go far in life without much being bogged down by the little details. Which guy wouldn’t appreciate that?
  3. Independant:
    Most traditional men like women who are meek and follow what they do. Not me. I like someone who doesn’t wait to get the ball rolling and knows exactly where it’s going. Someone who isn’t a follower, but a rebel. Someone who has a mind of their own and knows their own mind. When you think about it this way, when they are with you, you know for a fact that they choose to be with you for themselves, not for you, not for anyone else. What could be better than that?
  4. Ambitious:
    It’s no secret. I have a weakness for women with power and know how to actually use it. Someone who will do what it takes to get things done to get what they want. When you’re practical and smart, there is no limit left to what you want but your imagination. Imagine what that would be like in a relationship. Nothing would be held back. Nothing at all.
  5. Honesty:
    And I don’t mean just honest with me, but also honest to herself. Yes, I like a girl who tells me exactly what the situation is so that problems, if any can be worked out the way it’s supposed to be. But you can’t get more security in a person than one who’s willing to admit where they stand in life. Cut through the pride, the modesty, the arrogance and the self doubt. A girl who can tell you point blank what she actually feels in a girl whose insecurities are just surface deep. The rest of it is just someone who’s in control of everything.
  6. Easygoing:
    Ambition and independance can take a toll on anyone, not just the girl who wields them. I should know, it’s taken it’s toll on me. Having a girl who’s easygoing, who knows how to sit back and chill when it gets tough is definitely someone worth being with. Someone needs to know and to remind me that there is more to life than the responsibilities I push myself to keep. How else can you enjoy the relationship you have when you’re chest deep in problems all the time? Being easygoing is the ying to my yang.
  7. Curious:
    They say curiosity killed the cat. Fortunately my preference happens to fall under human beings. The world may be a big place to explore, but relationships between two people can be an even bigger place to swashbuckle your way through. I’d never feel bored whenever I have someone who’s willing to explore the universe with me because they really want to find out things they never knew before. How could that be a bad thing?
  8. Conversationalist:
    You may be smart, independant, practical and what nots, but if you don’t really have tact in what you say, all the other qualities don’t account for anything. Communication being the key to any human relationship, if you don’t know what to say, what relationship is there at all? Whether we’re having a conversation into the wee hours of the night or you’re using your womanly wiles to get up ahead in life or even just having fun making new friends. Your words matter and yes, they matter a lot to me.

There you have it, now you know. Now you know why some thing could never have worked out. Now you know why some things are just so hard to find and why I would have done everything to hold on to them. The combination of qualities like in a person doesn’t just fall out from the sky. More likely than not, they were already there to begin with and it’s just up to you to prove yourself worthy enough to be with them.

If I was superstitious enough, I would say I was tempting fate by stating the kind of person I would like to be with. After all, how many times have you actually found something you searched high and low for? Then again, I’m not that supersitious and I don’t have to try hard to search for a girl with that kind of quality. I’ve already found her and all I have to hope for is that I have the qualities wants in a guy would love.

I just have to wait till she forgives me for mentioning that Japan lost.

  1. Well it completely slipped my mind that she was supporting Japan on this one. Then again, I’m secretly rooting for Australia to win. 🙂

  2. You don’t want much, do you? 😛

    I’ll have a think about the meme… can’t remember off the top of my head if I’ve done something like it in the past.

  3. What? The qualities? I would say I’m asking for a lot. Especially with qualities like that, you’re getting a bundle in the long run. Well, try it out anyway if you forgot whether you did it or not. I’m sure we would all want to know. 🙂

  4. This was such a sweeeeet post.

    Just to quote you:

    Most traditional men like women who are meek and follow what they do.

    Urgh. That’s so true!

  5. yes, now I know. And yea, the reason I didn’t ask you over the phone was cos you didn’t pick up

    *blows raspberry*

    Boohoo. Japan lost. Therefore I lost a bet. Bah

  6. Razzberry: Well…thanks, but there is nothing sweet about it. It’s really what I want. 🙂

    Kristine: Well, you always happen to call at the wrong times. How am I supposed to know? You should have consulted me before betting. Kinda like insurance there. 🙂
