    we always think we know what we want, but in reality i dont think we do. Its easy to say that we want girls that are A,B,C and has 1,2,3 but you never know what you end up with. Thats why its always best to meet alot of different people and to tailor your taste into something you know very well what yo like/dislike. i write about that on my site

    I think it depends on the list. For example, I absolutely require a man who share my same religious/spiritual beliefs. And, I do not apologize for that.  My religious(Christian) beliefs guide me in all life decisions. For others, this may not be so important. For me, it is. Now, height and salary limits, etc., may be a bit much. But, some things should not be compromised. It depends on the list.

    Keep the list.  It weeds out the idiots.
