When I was in my twenties I had this list of qualities my future boyfriend just HAD to have – to be tall and handsome, with perfect hair and beautiful smile, to like the things I like, and so on, and so on.
You think a decade later I am living with my perfect Prince Charming? Guess again! My boyfriend does not have deep blue eyes, he’s losing his hair and has a “dad bod”. He is not that tall and he smokes (ew), he also tells “dad jokes” all the time.
But you know what? He makes me happy. He makes me feel like the most special person in the world. As annoying as he is, I would never trade him for that tall blue eyed Apollo from my stupid list.
