The Boyfriend List.
It was the middle of November. The wind was howling, Christmas was fast approaching, and I did not want to be alone. I decided there and that I was going to bring a man into my life. No, not just any old someone. My soulmate..
I wrote a list of all his attributes and characteristics. He was going to be extremely tall with brown hair and blue eyes. He was going to be polite, friendly, funny, and athletic. In my mind, I needed to be very specific so that when he did come into my life, I would know it was him. So I decided he would be heavily into basketball which is kinda rare for someone in the UK as the men here usually prefer football/soccer.
At the bottom of my list, I wrote: Thank you Universe for bringing him to me by December 25th.
Two weeks later the list was forgotten and I was at home with my mother. Out of nowhere, she mentions that one of her co-workers had seen a picture of me on her phone and asked if I was single because he had a friend that he would like to set me up with.
Long story short, me and this guy exchanged numbers. We had been texting for a few days and then decided to meet up. We went for drinks and as we were talking, I was realizing that this guy was exactly who I asked for in my list. He was extremely tall, 6ft 7 to be exact. He had brown hair and blue eyes. He held open doors for me and paid for everything. And you can imagine how I almost choked on my drink when he told me he plays basketball! I couldn’t believe it.
This all happened within 2 weeks and while we are not yet dating, I definitely believe we will be together when the time is right. The Secret really does work.
