I need to make an addition to my list of 'suitable boy' criteria previously mentioned.
Funny, attractive, right age bracket, male. SINGLE.
I kind of thought that one went without saying, but now I feel the need to clarify. Because I may find someone who gets shiny gold stars next to all those other points, with the bonus of great chemistry (and other plusses I won't mention to spare my parents), but then goes and screws it all up by having a girlfriend. Sure, it's just one item on the list, but unfortunately that one is non-negotiable.
