A Well Rounded “To-Do” List (Pun very much intended)

A Well Rounded “To-Do” List (Pun very much intended)

Today, a woman’s search for an ideal mate can be summed up with one simple phrase: “why settle for less”. In this case, the phrase can also apply when creating an ideal “To-Do” list filled with candidates to dream about while we wait for that perfect guy to come along. So, why settle for less, especially when a picture perfect (again with the pun) list of individuals can be created, that brings the qualities we love best about men into the limelight. Introducing the EXTREMELY irresistible:

The List

The List

My fiance and I do not have Lists.  You know, The List.  The crazy, irrational list of celebrities we get a free pass to sleep with should the opportunity arise? Yeah, like that's gonna happen.  Anyway, he knows who I find attractive, I know the same about him, but we haven't actually sat down and made lists, on paper, laminated or otherwise.

Should You Fantasize Over Celebs Or Real Men?

We all have a list of attractive celebs with whom we'd love to hit the sheets. These lists illustrate perfection in our eyes, the ones who, if we could have tailor-made mates, we would create to fulfill our wildest desires. But, that is not how the real world works.

The celebrity male, such as Matt Damon or Kenny Chesney, who falls for one of the normal girls is rare, and even then, we question the likelihood of such a relationship lasting. I admit that, much as I would love to have a shot at my Hollywood dream men, they are not available for me. I have to be more realistic, even in my fantasies.

If you’re in a serious relationship with a man, chances are you’ve nagged him about taking out the trash, throwing away his junk mail, making a dentist appointment or exercising. The list goes on and on with the same conclusion: Most men procrastinate. And they are even less likely to accomplish a task with a woman over their shoulder complaining. Although it may be tempting to fly into a rage next time you trip over your man’s wet towel, it’s best to keep your cool. Here are some ways to avoid acting like his mother.

Can You and Your Ex Be Friends?

Can You and Your Ex Be Friends?

I had been in a relationship for a year with a good man. I went back and forth trying to figure out if I was in love with him and it sort of drove me crazy. I like to analyze a lot and I think that drove him crazy. Anyway, I liked him and I liked being part of a couple and I thought our love would grow. When we first met, I was pretty sure he was smitten. Then I became smitten and he backed off. And thus that was how the year of our relationship went. We generally liked each other, but the love never fully manifested for either one of us.

5 Reasons Why Men Text Instead of Call

“Wanna go out tonight? ” may be a simple text that most men feel is harmless, but it’s something that drives women nuts.

8 Tips Smart Women Know about Living “Happily Ever After”

While most of us want to believe in the happily ever after ending, it sometimes takes a lot of work and effort to get there. With the news media feeding us frequent stories of celebrities who can’t seem to make their relationships work, it’s no wonder everyday couples who don’t have an abundance of money or fame are struggling to keep their marriage alive. With the national statistic for divorce in the United States still holding at 50 percent, we don’t have reason to believe that fairytale endings exist anymore.
