QUALITIES THAT MAKE YOU DATEABLE

Inspired by @shannon's undateable list
  1. Enjoys watching my favorite TV shows and eating ice cream while doing so.
    Bachelorette, Silicon Valley, John Oliver, & Married At First Sight.
  2. Likes books and has book recommendations.
    Or just reads anything. Something. (Extra points if you wrote a book)
  3. Fixes/makes/builds/creates things
    Has ideas and wants to add creativity to the world.
  4. Has a goddamn sense of humor
    Isn't just funny, but clever and smart. I need to want to step up my joke game.
  5. Wears jeans that fit
    This is more important than you think.
  6. Plays sports/exercises regularly
    Not having competition for a game of horse is not how I want to live.
  7. Asks me if I'm okay
    Just for no reason, because they care.
  8. Is comfortable talking to my friends/family
    It makes me very happy when a dude can talk to my dad for hours about baseball.
  9. Enjoys 90s music
    If you switch the station from Third Eye Blind I will cut you.
  10. Doesn't look at phone in middle of conversation
    This happened to me and the only thing that can describe my reaction is the Butthead face.
  11. Is taller than me
    I'm 5'9.
  12. Doesn't talk about famous people
    I could give a shit if you know the guy in a Dairy Queen commercial or if you "worked on a project" with a dude on an episode of Breaking Bad. It's actually more of a turn off than anything.
  13. Is independent
    I love being by myself. You should too. If I don't return a text message within an hour, don't freak out.
  14. Likes food
    I love trying new foods and restaurants. Grilled cheeses are great and all, but occasionally I want to eat some crazy shit.
  15. Loves nature
    The outdoors and middle of nowhere makes me very happy. Lakes, mountains, grass, trees...
  16. Appreciates animals
    If you don't love my cat I don't love you.
