free agency

The free agency period has begun!

No...I'm not talking about football. Not talking about baseball or basketball.

The new season is upon us. The season of love.

We often talk about what we want from our spouse or mate. But let's assume that we all are single right now. Assume that you are a free agent on the open market and you're looking.

What are you looking for?

As a free agent...what do you bring to the table? Aside from the obvious (someone's physical appearance), how would your free agency chart look? Mine would go like this...

Personal Attributes...
Smart, witty, good sense of humor, calm demeanor, caring, good listener, self motivated, confident

Intelligent, confident, good sense of humor, driven, self motivated, loyal, great personality

Using the same would your free agency list look?

No assumptions here, ya girl is definitely a free agent and I'm looking for a two-year contract with a lifetime option.
It's a lil' too late in the game for me to be dating just to be dating. The way I figure it, I got about 13 and a half good years left on my reproductive system so I need to get cracking in the next five. :-)
OK, I'm half serious about that.
Anyway, my chart reads as follows:
Personal Attributes ...
Employed, intelligent, laid back with high strung tendecies, outspoken, confident, patient, kind, good sense of humor, great personality and a good cook

Seeking ...
EMPLOYED, intelligent, laid back, confident not arrogant, patient, kind, outgoing, great personality, self-starter, take initiative, handy (in more ways than one)

I don't want much. :-D
