one more

This one from baldilocks:

Men want women they can love. Women want men they can respect. Any other good feelings that an individual may have for his/her mate are nice, but they're just gravy.

Women claim they want more sensitive men, but when they get one, hes deemed to be a wimp.

Men claim they want more logical, cool-headed women, but when they get one, shes deemed to be cold.

For all the lip service given to equality between the sexes, deep down inside, most men want a sensitive woman who takes care of their domestic needs, allows him to rescue her on occasion and lets him get a word in edgewise every now and then.

And most women want a man that she can count on to provide for her, cherish her, makes her feel secure that he will not abandon her (yes, even tough chicks like me) and actively listens to her on occasion.

Of course, these qualities vary with each individual. The trick is to find that other individual that balances out your own levels of these traits.

But the bottom line is this: all that most of us singles are really looking for is that person who understands us to a reasonable extent--that's never going to be a perfect amount--and one who is willing to put up with our BS on a regular basis.

That one reminds me of something my grandmother said after my grandfather died. They had been married for 75 years. "Of course I loved him. I put up with his bullshit for a long time."


Amen, amen. Such a very wise woman!

Thanks, BLK. And thank you, too, Rob (you know what for).

Let the rumors begin. :-)

Have I ever mentioned that Misha's quote about you is my favorite?

...the Dark Lord of the Southeast... the Lord of Corrosion"

Baldi, I'm not that dark, but I declared myself to be a black man today.

My nose works fine. It'll pass. But if I want AUTHENTICITY, which I do, I gotta do something about this hair. I ain't going to SHAVE it, because I did that once and discovered that I have an ugly bald head.

If I get a perm, I'm afraid that I'll look more Jewish than Black. See what a quandry I'm in?

I may suffer ethnic aftershock if I invent too many new personas in one day.

women want the highest man they can get who stoops the lowest for them
You all know in your heart this is true!
