Be the Kind of Person You Want to End Up With

Want someone who takes care of themselves? Take care of yourself. Want someone who is kind? Be kind. Want someone who is educated? Be educated. Want someone who loves God? Love God. Want him to treat you like a lady? Act like a lady and treat him like a gentleman.
By cultivating those attributes within yourself, you’re more likely to attract people with similarities in those respects. You and your love should compliment each other, yes, but the term “opposites attract” is so misleading when it comes to love and often it is simply not true. If you want something from someone else, be willing to give what you’re asking for.
Be the kind of person you want to end up with. The side effect? You will begin to love and respect yourself more. That will give you confidence, which will in turn make you even more attractive.
This is my personal perspective, anyway. Not a doctor, therapist, etc.

All I want in a man is a worthy priesthood holder who takes the standards of the church seriously.

In my book, that means:

Don’t watch R-rated movies, TV shows that are the equivalent of R-rated, or play video games that are the equivalent of R-rated (please no shooter games, ugh); in fact, please stay away from distasteful PG-13 things as well. Don’t listen to vulgar music. Don’t swear. Keep the word of wisdom. Respect and keep the law of chastity. Respect women. Honor your priesthood and your role as a priesthood holder. Be honest. Love the Gospel.

I’m not asking a man to keep any standards that I won’t keep, and I’d rather be alone than settle.

I want someone who is willing to be the provider in the family, someone who understands my desire to be a stay-at-home mom. I'm not asking for him to speak a second language, sing well, play the piano, be rich or anything else outlandish, just for someone who is always wanting to learn and grow. I'm not asking for perfection.

I'll find that love someday, I know I will, I just have to be patient.
