a quality meme

it's one week till valentine's day and already everyone's feeling its effects.

first, the star did a feature on why single women choose to be single. then, vincent wrote, in his usual blunt manner, about single women (and men) who claim they choose to be single because they can't hook up with anyone.

and now adeline's tagged me with this meme:

the tagged victim (haha...memes have victims now, lol) has to come up with 8 different points of their perfect lover. need to mention the sex of the target. tag 8 victims to join this game & leave a comment on their page saying they’ve been tagged. if tagged the 2nd time, theres no need to post again.


initial thought: why 8? this meme must have been created by someone chinese. hmm.

well, i don't like listing out qualities.

there will be tonnes of women out there who say that it's important to list out qualities so to remind yourself to never settle for anything less. oh you know, gender equality, girl power, feminism, yada yada.

but i don't think it's a good idea to list out qualities because, more often than not, those qualities we choose are influenced by characters we see on the telly or in romantic comedies.

and we all know that romantic comedies only serve to give women unrealistic expectations and put so much pressure on men that they'd rather just let the women drool over fictional characters than compete with mark darcy, top human rights lawyer.

actually i only have one quality to write down. i came up with it sometime when i was in jc, and it was from a poem i jotted down in my diary:

"Lord please send me someone who,
loves me just as much as You do.

multiply that by 8 and there you have it, another complete meme! =)

i won't tag anyone else simply because i have a feeling this meme will circulate itself as fast as any other meme. why? because that's what memes do. circulate. uh-huh.

alrighty. that's it!
