I seek counsel from my father; I come from a large family - I have 4 other bio siblings from my parents' 32 yr marriage. I've been deeply disappointed in my past relationships. Attraction is important...that magnetic "spark" needs to be there. I assess the character of a guy when we meet.Must treat his parents & older generation w/ respect.Displays tenderness w/o "coddling" or "fawning over" me. Has a "band of guy friends".Values truth & integrity. Has sense of humor. Manages money well, so he can be generous with it ~ I like to shop on designer items! Must be earning a good living at this stage in his life/current age.
