Your 5 Love Non-Negotiables

If you watch Millionare Matchmaker more than you should as much as I do, you've probably heard Patti Stanger ask her clients for their 5 Non-Negotiables. This is is a list of 5 qualities or traits your partner must have. My girlfriends and I spent our Sunday morning discussing ours, and sometimes it's surprisingly difficult to whittle down what you need vs. what you want. However, I fully believe that you can't get where you're going without a road map, and that you have to know what you want in order to get it! (Sometimes you know what you want and still haven't gotten it. For example: my constant chants of "I want a Chanel quilted chain purse...I want a Chanel quilted chain purse" have failed to land a buttery lambskin handbag with interlocking C's on my doorstep, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.)

Ensley's 5 Relationship Non-Negotiables:
1. Makes me laugh
2. Adventurous
3. Thoughtful
4. Wants children
5. Has a job he is passionate about (or is at least working towards it)

What are your 5 Relationship Non-Negotiables? Are you currently dating someone who meets some/all/none of them? If you are in a relationship, are they all fulfilled? Leave me a comment and let me know!

my non-negotiables would be:

1) Has a sense of humor
2) Doesn't overdo it on alcohol (had dating experience with this, unfortunately. they have to enjoy it responsibly though! don't think i could date a non-drinker... i love going to breweries and wineries!)
3) Is flexible and easy-going
4) Loves live music, esp music I enjoy, and loves traveling to see music (I think in our first year, my boyfriend and I saw 20-25 shows together)
5) Is kind to everyone and everything

I love this! Couldn't agree more.. I'm a new follower! :) I found your blog when I saw your entry for my jewelry giveaway on Lori's Shopaholic blog (thank you, by the way!). I read your profile on the side, and I think you just might be my long lost twin! Haha. So glad I found you!

Your 5 Non-Negotiables are great! I appreciate specifics, since a lot of my friends came up with non-negotiables that are so general that 90% of the population would match them, or they are just straight up boring. Yours were neither!

I love how I talked to you yesterday and our convo about canal street and our desire for a chanel quilted chain purse was brought up...yet I hadn't even caught up with your AMAZING blog yet! Great minds think alike. Love your blog- it grown so much from where it started. Is it offensive or complimentary to say you're the next Chelsea Handler with a Martha Stewart twist? Love you! Visit me this summer :) xo
