After a long period of ‘just doing me!’, I was speaking to Sonia about relationships and she asked me bluntly ‘Do you want to get married Jo?’ For the first time I acknowledged openly my true hearts desire that I would, but followed with a list of reasons why not to. She suggested I make a list of qualities and attributes I desired from my ideal man.
It was divided up into three simple categories: essential, desirable and can’t stand. I made my list which was pretty long and Sonia helped me to refine this. For the first time I was able to define what husband material looked like to me and revealed where I had unrealistic expectations that I couldn’t meet so why should he?!
The process challenged me initially, but I made a few adjustments, kept the faith and I am pleased to say in October 2015 I got married to the man of my dreams! Thanks Sonia for introducing me to ‘the list’ and helping me to meet my match!
