    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    It is like a job req listing. Companies want a person who can do it all but will be fine with someone who can do some of it really well and can work on the other things. I don't think every woman expects a guy with all her wants.

    I would like to see a guys list. I am sure we women won't be able to meet all your desires either but if we can come close maybe that is good enough. I would be happy with just a nice guy who tries.

    By the way, what did you consider impossible???

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I think a guys list is pretty short. 3 things...maybe 4.

    And I'll give you that not all woman can cook.
    I'm so much cooler online...

    Come to think of it, I must have described 90% of all marital problems.

    Are you sure it is not the "I don't feel like it usually" bit?

    You think so??? I think both sexes need to communicate more to each other.

    Had to chuckle a little at this statement..."someone" said to me in no uncertain terms that no one should have to "try".

    Guess that is why that "someone" is an x.

    I get what TKD is saying and would like to add that someone truly in love doesn't have to try. They want to please their significant other because it makes them feel good too. It just comes natural and spontaneous. Plus there is usually some great benefits to follow.

    I guess I didn't express that correctly.

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    And maybe if you have to "try"...it's because there are other forces at hand. In the end, I didn't have to try at all.

    I know what you both mean.

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    My list is too long, that's why I'm still single

    I also have an alarming tendency to ditch the list entirely and go for people who are totally unsuitable, another reason why I'm still single

    Any man would be lucky to get you Meanon! But it is my personal opinion that you should stay single and just enjoy life.
