Good men

Thanks for sending this on Errol ... I kinda feel that I was looking for the faults ... when you're looking for the faults, you just know it's not the person for you!

Good men are indeed all around us. We pass them on the streets,
In the malls and the halls at work. Most we can't see because we don't know
What a good man really looks like. He usually isn't flashy enough or rich
Enough to turn our heads.

He might not wear a suit or push a BMW. He might not have a
"body like Vin Diesel with a Brad Pitt face". But, as you mature, you realize
it's better to find someone who's got your back than someone who turns your

A good man doesn't agree whole heartedly with everything you
Say. He doesn't just tell you what you want to hear and do the opposite. He
Doesn't declare how sensitive, sweet, caring, sincere, yada yada he is (he won’t
Have to because it shows). He has his own opinions and you may clash,
But he doesn't have to degrade you to prove he's right. He even admits at times
To being wrong, especially if you are willing to do the same.

A good man is not going to meet every item on your checklist. He
Is human with frailties and faults mixed in with all of his wonderful,
Strong attributes. He needs your love and respect. He needs to feel
That you don't live to "catch" him doing something wrong so you can declare,
"Aha! I knew you were a dog!!"

A good man doesn't necessarily give you a huge birthday or
Valentine's gift. He shows his love in the ways that are comfortable to him. Don't
Judge him by TV standards (...Bold and the Beautiful...). No one lives
That fairy tale for real. You'll miss out on your own fairy tale by buying into
The myth that our men are no good. It's just not true.
Men, we salute
You, and thank you for who you are and all you've done.
