What I've Been Looking For.

For days, I have been trying to come up with a good topic to blog about. Somehow, I ended up with this. A list. The list, you might say. I don't know how exactly I came up with this. It's probably been buried in my subconscious for the past few days. Or maybe I've been watching way too many romantic movies that I came up with this list. Then again, maybe it's because people have been hounding on me (yet again) on why I am still single.

Whatever the reason is, here I am blogging away, just so I can get this out of my system. I never realized that it's such a long list. Some imagination I have. Hahaha! Can I help it? I'm a hopeless romantic. Always have. Everyone who knows me can attest to that. So for those of you who are curious at to what my ideal kind of guy it is. The list.

Until that day comes, I'll be right here...waiting.
