PSA: If your man does even one of these, you've got a keeper.
We are modern women.
We love being independent and making our own choices. And while we don't need a man to make our lives worthwhile, that doesn't mean we don't want one.
It just means we are far more careful and specific about the men we want to be with.
We are no longer satisfied with just any boy. We want a real man.
