When I was a little girl, I began compiling a list of qualities I was looking for in a man. I don't know what happened to that list, but if I still had the paper, it would have crinkles, cross-outs, highlighter streaks and tear stains.

The attributes we desire in a partner change as we mature and reassess what really matters (such that I no longer seek a blue-eyed, French-speaking, caged-bird-freeing, Jewish guitarist with an aching desire to compose Grammy-worthy songs about me). Our priorities also change as we reflect on one failed romantic relationship after another. So how do we figure out what we want and what we need, and is the distinction between desire and necessity significant?
