Could the wrong man on paper be the right man in real life?
I know it's clichéd, but I'm a financial planner and I like lists. Except my girlfriends think that having a checklist for my ideal man is going a step too far.
It doesn't matter that I'm the only one of us who is still unattached. Or that I've always dreamed of starting a family and settling down. I'm not going to lower my standards.
I certainly wouldn't fall for a guy like Dave, who is opposite to me in every way. He's got bad boy written all over him, and his eyes are completely the wrong color. In fact, he doesn't tick any of my boxes.
I can still admire him, though. And maybe flirt a little—but not too much. I need to keep things professional now he's a client.
But the thing is, I've never met anyone like Dave before and I'm starting to wonder about the reasons behind my list. Reasons I've tried to leave in the past but are coming back to haunt me.
Am I brave enough to rewrite my list? Or worse—get rid of it completely?
