    What Women Look For In a Mate

    It's obvious women and their "Roles" in a partnership/marriage have changed. Women are more independent and are specific what they look for in a mate. Due to men saying they do not understand women, would the women please post here to respond and help men understand the 'gentler' sex. Men can post here if they have any questions.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I think women look for a man that will really listen to what she has to say.

    You must have had some bad times with the opposite sex. I don't believe most men or most women are losers. I think they make up the minority. I hope you feel comfortable enough with us soon and will tell us about yourself.

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I look for someone who is respectful, considerate, kind hearted, genuine, passionate but most importantly there has to be some sort of connection on a deeper level than there is with everyone else.

    What's scary about it, ferdley?

    I agree with you BB about the deeper connection. I get on well with people but often they don't really understand me and when someone does, I can usually tell straight away.

    That's JUST beautiful; and sums everything up nicely!

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    The most important thing I find in a mate is for him to live his life in a respectful way. He must be an honest and respectful individual. He must be supportive and he must be my best friend. I cannot be in a male/female relationship without the man being my best friend. I think there is too much practice of individualism in relationships these days instead of a man and a woman coming together to form one very special team.

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I am going to bump this one up just because. Valentine's Day just go over, Spring is in the air, what ever reason!! Ha Ha.

    I look for someone who I can talk openly to. Someone who will listen to what I have to say as well. I like humor and kindness. I look for someone who will enjoy doing the things I enjoy just because it is with me and I would do the same with them. I nice face and a cute butt help!!!

    There are but few quarterbacks who are qualified engineers (a certain common back ground will definitely help, especially as professionals often have a quirky sense of humor).

    I do know Georgia Tech has a football team. They tend to be quite lousy, unless they allow illiterates to play for them (which happened a decade ago) ...

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I went to a college that was primarily an engineering college and we had a football team. Of course we were not broadcast anywhere and no one bragged that they were on the team. If they did the response was, "good, now what is your GPA?" They were there for an education not a fast lane to the Denver Broncos or anything. Although some did have good butts!!!

    Re: What Women Look For In a Mate

    I look for someone who is intelligent and strong without being overly arrogant. I want someone who loves me for me and doesn't find things to change while I would do the same with him. A true soul mate, one that shows he loves me by spontaneous gifts and surprises once in a while when it is not even a holiday. I love a man that smiles readily and has a good sense of humor, but won't let others walk all over him.

    I also agree that a nice firm rear end is another plus.

    I like gentleness, that's very important to me.

    I like the gifts and surprises on impulse. That is a nice romantic touch.

    So, Vautrin and WDH, you getting some good pointers?

    Yes, too bad I don't feel like doing much at the moment.

    That's okay, too; a person needs time for oneself.
