Knowing What You Want

During my recent trip to Denver my best friend and I were able to hang out with two friends (one guy - W, one girl, K) from high school. It was so fun. We went out in downtown Denver, boated in Frisco, walked around Breckenridge...just what I needed.

W was asking us all weekend what we wanted in a guy (why does this seem to be a theme). We each scratched our heads and tried to list some things we thought were important; a guy needed to make us laugh, smile, feel safe. There were also some things that were non-essentials; I want to date someone who can drive a stick shift, eats his steak medium rare and knows how to jump start a car.

But my best friend and I have continued to come up with new things we would add to our lists and a couple of days ago it dawned on me.

It was a country song. I want a relationship like Nitty Gritty Dirt Bands "Fishin in the Dark."

Comfort, no pretenses.

  1. Country music gets a bad rap, but honestly? I think it's got it right, for the most part. Simple.
