  1. Happy V-day….or D-day for the side pieces. Lol @ the list. I’ve already failed on playing house. I would add no kids before marriage, to eliminate being single with multiple baby daddies.

  2. Playing house does have some success rates though, I've seen many relationships work from it up close. But hey I'm just being devil's advocate I guess. I dig the list though.

  3. 1.I will not rush things…———-True
    2.I will make exceptions, but no compromises…—-True
    3.I will not make it about me…——-make it 50/50

      11.I will not consider what goes on in the bedroom quality time….——-Not the Alone

      16.I will not play house…——–This too is Subjective

      1. 17.I will not cheat: romantically or emotionally with another person….—–Personally, i don't beliee in Emotional Cheating

        22.I will not have a baby with someone who is not my wife/husband..——–Self Explanatory

  4. #20 is spot on, and women have become masters at using it, more so because men today have become weak and oft-times pu$$y pandering, brothers we got to stop that. I disagree with #22 because there are people who have had children out of wedlock and married later, or not at all and continue to raise that family, so with that one is different strokes for different folks. And as far as making a list, if you listed 10 things and a gentleman you meet has 9 of those, would you really cut him loose as relationship potential?
