Well, the day came: Jenelle Evans' mom is ready to date

Teen Mom 2 fans, the day finally came. Barbara Evans, longtime woman with a plan and mom behind the scenes to Jenelle Evans' son Jace, got her own special.

Here's the list in all its glory: Evans wants a man "55 to 65 years old with a good personality who was moderately intelligent (but not too intelligent that she would be lost), had a decent job (so she didn't always have to bankroll their activities) and all of his teeth, and good personal hygiene (though that did not mean he had to shave his 'balls,' despite Kristen's insistence this was all the rage)."

She's willing to compromise a little: It's OK to be overweight, as long as her future suitor doesn't have "saggy skin." A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. We can't wait to watch this grandmama go on dates!
