Mindless

I am a computer programmer by day and philosopher by night. I post once or twice a week. I aim to prevent blogging from taking to much time, while allowing time to develop each idea before posting it. Each has some reference to human, universal, or societal truths, while presented in an organized, understandable & consise way -- this is the plan anyway. Results may very as what rings true for one may seem false to another. Also becuase sometimes I get things wrong.

Response to Layla's "Top Ten Qualities in a Mate"

Layla shared with us the things she was looking for in a man.

The more formal process is this: create a list of 10 things that you want in a mate and 10 things that you could not tolerate. The idea is that given this list of well thought out traits you will be less likely to settle for someone who you won't be happy with, and more effective at seeking out someone you will be happy with. It can really be hard narrowing down to just 10!

Here are my current lists. Subject to change without notice! (I still need to do some narrowing down as I have 11 items in the 'must haves.')

-------------------
Must have:
-------------------

Kind
Intelligent
Joyful
Patient
Accepting of self and others
Considerate/Open minded - Tolerant
Interested in solutions not victories - Conflict Revolver
Loyal
Strong Character - Honest
Genuine
Generous
Verbal Intimacy (sharing of thoughts and feelings)

-------------------
Can't stand:
-------------------

Mean
Superficial
Infidelity
Cheating (manipulative or taking advantage of other people)
Holds grudges (resentment, revenge)
Angry
Denial
Workaholic
Dependence
Uninterested


BTW, I've done some work on the second in a series of happiness posts, but it has required more thought then I originally believed.

BTW, I love Firefox's new built in spell checking!
