Not Alone Series: Good Ol' Deal Breakers

Linking up with the faithful Jen at Jumping in Puddles and Morgan at Follow and Believe!

We have chatted about our deal breakers/non-negotiables before, but how do you keep from letting your standards fall? What prevents you from just dating any guy out there? What keeps you going?

Can we get real for this post? How many of us make this face when a TDH walks in?

Like, wowza. I would totally make that face if Benedict was in my vicinity, lezbihonest. 

But hold the phone - does that TDH love Jesus? Because no matter how cute he is, cuteness is not going to sustain a relationship for any amount of time. And neither does niceness or money or sweet wheels or a rocking job or a vacation home in Spain. Jesus is the best foundation for any relationship, and really the only One upon which I want to build a marriage. 

My list of deal breakers is pretty short, and so is my list of keeping up standards. It's all pretty simple, really. 

What about you? Join the conversation and the link-up over at Jen's

    Your confidence is palpable.

    And also... SHERLOCK!!! I freaked out inside when I saw the gif. I CANNOT wait for the show to start back up!!

  2. Is that a good thing, Jen? ;) Hope so!

    Augh! I keep hearing rumors of 2015 but I don't want to get my hopes up... maybe we'll get Benedict's wedding pictures instead?! :D no complaints here!

  3. Yeah, Jesus! That's one of mine, too.

  4. I like the simplicity. And I totally had to google search what TDH meant.

  5. Thanks, Natalie!
    Haha, it's one of my favorite nicknames for the future hubs :)
