nothing is wrong w guys who are like tht *facepalm* i'm just saying tht OP isn't really asking for a lot and it's absolutely fine to have high standards. Why should she settle for less if there's a guy tht ticks all the boxes for her?
didnt say that she has to settle all I said was kind, funny and attractive men aren't the bare mininum.

Kind
Fairly attractive
Good at cuddling

I’m my opinion, There is no such thing as perfect partner or finding the one you want. You are one in billion if found one that is your type.
In life we like and dislikes a lot of things and life is full of compromising. So find the one that will love you and understand you. Rest the will come automatically as you have to spend your life together.

I also think that there is one always made for you and will be in your life. You just have to wait for the right time to come.

In all honesty, what you desire are 100% normal and not excessive in any way. Most of them are the basic things anyone would want in their partner. And it doesn't compare to some of the other categories people like I have:

His wage should be around mine.
Speak a minimum of three languages (Namely, Russian, German and English).
Be honest.
Be good with kids.

And the list goes on.

You require your partner to speak German, Russian and English? Seems like a pretty restrictive requirement.

there was slight subtle sarcasm in my original post..ofc it's not the bare minimum bcos the bare minimum is respect and decency.

It's a personal preference, since I know 4 languages myself and most of my immediate family at least 3, I would want him to understand our conversation and not feel left out. Because a lot of the things we talk about in conversations is not in English, I feel it would not be fair for him to miss out and feel awkward. I know it doesn't apply to all guys, but just to be on the safe side

Those 9 dealbreakers are not insane.
I have over 25 dating dealbreakers and date with a minimum 15 year age gap.
Some friends have even more dealbreakers, some very restrictive and want to have more than 7 children.

Surely he could just learn the other languages once you're in a serious relationship?

If he has the dedication, I'm open to the idea. But I won't hide that while German is fairly easy to learn, Russian would definitely take a lot of time, so that's why I'd prefer him to already know it.
