For a long time I was attracted to whichever guy would give me attention. It was not always good attention I was seeking, and I drew a lot of losers. However, as I got older, more experienced, and grew my self-esteem, I realized I deserved much better. I started making a list of qualities I cared about, and that would be good for my kids as well. But I also knew I needed to have some qualities on there I could be flexible with, as no one is perfect.

Then one day I came across this good-looking guy Sean, on Facebook. Not only was he good-looking, but he was Pagan, just like me. Through chatting with him a bit I found out he was also intelligent (not overly common in my area), and his sense of humor matched mine pretty well. So far, the qualities were matching my standards.
After a few months we met in person. I invited my mom over at the time he was expected to arrive, and made sure my kiddos were all amped up, playing outside. I wanted to put Sean through the chaos test! When he arrived he was a bit shy, but he met everyone and even joined in when I started playing with the kids out in the rain. Once we left for our date, I asked what he thought of the family. He was not afraid. So he passed the test!
We had an awkward date but it was informative. We did a lot of talking about ourselves and our lives. And we definitely wanted to see each other again.
So the qualities there were family-friendly/oriented, sense of humor, intelligence, very sweet to me, similar spirituality, honesty, and the obvious attraction to his looks. Over time I discovered many more, but that’s where it all started.
And I must say, I am satisfied. I found everything I wanted in Sean, and that is why I have committed to being his wife. ❤
