How would you describe your ideal boy?

“Well, my ideal boy would be someone who is not afraid of giving his total self in a sacrifice of love for me. Oh, wait, that’s Jesus. Okay, my ideal boy would be someone who is constantly praying to be more like Jesus, than like anybody else. He would be someone who is not afraid of defending the truth, someone who loves Mary, going to Mass and praying the Rosary; someone who gives his heart totally to Jesus. A godly man willing to follow Christ no matter how hard it is in these times. Finally, my ideal boy would be someone who desires and works every day to become a saint.PS: It would be awesome if he also loves the Theology of the Body.”
