Dear Mr. Right,
When I was in college, I had a list of qualities I thought I needed to find in you. Things like the ability to bench press my weight. Have health insurance (I was quite practical for a 20 year old). Never wear flip flops. Know how to put your hand on the small of my back when walking into a room. Beat me in a game of 1 on 1. Have a job. Not believe in dogs sleeping in the bed. Wear cologne that made me weak in the knees. Propose in the correct manner. Know how to ride a horse and have branded calves.

And now? I think I'd throw that entire list in the trash so long as you really love me. I haven't lowered my standards, but I've grown up. Which is why it's probably good you didn't come along when I was 20. Because I might have missed you.
(But if you happen to ride a horse and smell really good, well I wouldn't mind that much.)
Waiting for that day,
