Looking for L<3VE

What do women look for in men?

What qualities do we search for to fill that void?

I googled this very question. Not that I don't already know the answer. I'm a single women. I had THAT check-list at 14! Along with the castle and horse drawn carriage.
I was just curious if they were different from mine. Nope!, all the same.


Someone who won't leave my side when the storm hits. A Shoulder to cry on. A Companion who will give me the shirt off their back. A Protector that will lay down Their life for mine. A Love that is forgiving, understanding, patient, true. Someone who makes me feel free & alive. Just the very presence of Him entering the room, makes it shake. A Love so deep, no matter how you search your heart, you can't deny it. A Prince that never stops believing or encouraging me. A Love worth fighting for.
As I accumulated my "wish list", I started to notice something heart warming & amazing. I did have this perfect Someone. He has been right in front of my eyes for so long. A Prince who waited until I was ready to love Him, because He loved me already. Jesus was all that, plus so much more. I yearned for a Love that I already was given. All I had to do was open up and receive it. When all others left, He was still there. To pick up the pieces and put me back together.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (New Living Translation)

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
