Men have made women wise up.!!!


I'm looking for a wise woman. Or maybe I should say a wised up woman. Not looking for perfection, just one who understands that while neither of us are perfect, with effort we might approach it. But only together. Once the paths diverge, it's all over but the crying, in my experience.

Katie~Love ...

I miss you!! Wish you weren't a ghost! I love it when I stumble across one of your posts ... like a treasure ... hidden in an antique store.

I agree with you ... as always ...

Why is it that the legal piece of paper seems to change personalities so?

A dear friend of mine, once said to me ... as I was contemplating marriage ... "Why would you do that and ruin a perfectly good relationship?"

So true! So true!

Rock-on chickster!! I really do miss you!!

~Smiles
--------------------------------------
No more blues, delightful Suz! Like the indestructable Terminator... I'm back! lol

AND I'm no longer a ghost. I'm all moved and settled.

Also, I burned my posterior something fierce, peeled like a snake, and now could probably compete with Madmoiselle Butterfly in the tan department! God, you could have fried eggs on my forehead last week!

I'm back in the MM saddle ... uh ... chaise lounge again!

Let me tell you a little story about a friend of mine whose house caught on fire. She had 350 blouses, and more than that in suits, pants, dresses,Plus a couple of hundred pair of shoes. After she got the cleaning bill and the O2 smoke removal treatment bill for the shoes and clothes she had no insurance money left for replacing the furniture,etc. in the house. I think the cleaning bill ran over $60K. --- Just cleaning, not replacing the clothes. Just make sure you have plenty of insurance.

This reminds me of a favorite quote too, but unfortunately I don't remember it or it's author either. In fact, I don't even remember the quote.

If you knows what quote I am talking about, let me know.

lol

I liked your quote Ed. They were probably talking about me.

I am not picking on you, but that is the problem sometimes. You marry someone thinking; oh, they'll change, but they don't.

And I said "SOME" women, not ALL. And.. I included guys in the equation.

So take that!!!



I love this question because people more often than not, miss a really key reason why we marry jerks.

They weren't jerks when we said, "I do!!!!!"

The ones we dated before we married them didn't say to themselves before they popped the question, "I want to marry this one! I'm gonna show them what a big freak I am and how impossibly rejectable I will be once we tie the knot!"

Men only really pull out the big guns in their "excess gas arsenal" (pardon the pun) AFTER the ink is dry on the marriage certificate! Women only really start duct-taping the toilet seat to the bowl AFTER the throwing of the bouquet! Nobody ever shows their most disgusting, boorish, shrewish, biotchy side until the deed is done!

THAT'S how we end up hitched to Spous-zilla and THAT'S why people are silly enough to ask, "What the heck did you ever see in that alien abduction reject, anyway?"

Oh, BTW ... GoodLife Grl..... that's a very impressive ribbit response you inspired there! lol Good on ya!

YOU are spot on there..I dated for a very long time and never claimed any man 'my boyfriend' , most of them became great buddies and eventually married Mr. Right at 29..I think most of us have a sort of 'memory bank' where we store all the info about who we need and want for a soulmate, and when we do the quality control 'dating' circuit , that memory bank works unconsciously till we finally kiss the 'right frog' and it clicks 'bingo'! ..just relax and enjoy dating all different types..and you would be pleasantly surprised what you find...I adore the company of men but marrying them takes on a different agenda...wish more men understand that women can be great platonic friends too..and not see us as just marriage candidates...

Very well stated Mandalay..I share the same thought,and feelings that you stated..

Danny,


To me, it's not just the women but the men as well. There are many men on this site, in the same age range as you described but haven't found the right woman yet.

Settling down with someone in my eyes is just that, settling. Many people have certain criteria that are a "must." I know I certainly have them and I'm sure you do as well. Does it make us picky? Probably so, yes. I'd rather be extremely picky in a potential mate and have that person have the qualities I am looking for than someone who only has 75% of those qualities. The key is to communicate those must have qualities and keep an open mind. Some of the women you describe just may be someone you'd like to date once you find out more about them.

When you say, "they seem to have higher than average expectations for men.", I would disagree with that. I know I have very high expectations about someone's character and personality going into something. Physical attributes are just that, physical. Physical attraction only gets you so far, it's what's beneath that surface is what matters most to me. Show me intelligence, class, dignity, grace, humor and especially trust, the beauty of the individual shines even more brightly.

Ah . . . why am I "still single?" Actually, I married real young (22) and the reasons for my divorce are too complex to explain here.

Since then I've had 2 (relatively) long-term relationships, so FINDING a good man isn't a problem . . . it's finding the one you want to marry . . . who wants to marry YOU!

Finding Mr./Ms. Right like finding a needle in a haystack . . . it's a wonder any of us marry at all . . .

Actually, I think the BIGGEST problem is we DON'T DATE ENOUGH. We meet someone we like, and then try to "make" it work, sometimes wasting years in the process.

Successful daters know this is a numbers game . . . we need to ride that rough edge of kissing a lot of frogs while somehow maintaining our (not literal) "virtue" through it all, in the hopes of finding our "prince."

I remain the hopeful romantic . . .

Well there are many different factors why there are beautiful women that are still single.

There are times in your life when it is peaceful and meaningful to get to know yourself which requires that you be by yourself.

Some men think beautiful women are too demanding and are too much work. This also breeds jealousy in men which ultimately end in a falied relationship. If you believe a person is too beautiful to be single in the first place, it is likely that they will not totally gain trust in that person when you (men) are feeling insecure, there goes the jealousy.

Most of all. Beautiful women have the same flaws and issues as average-poor looking women. For instance, Haile Barry. She is one of the most beautiful women alive yet she cannot sustain a relationship. This is not because of the way she looks, she's flawless, it's her and the men she encounter.

just my 2 cents

It's simple buddy. SOME, not all, toss men around like dishrags because they have an attitude problem. Or, some just think because they do look good, they can do whatever the he** they want.Or, they see ooooone little thing they don't like and throw it all away looking for the absolute perfect man. Show me a perfect person and I will show you an android. That's why they CAN'T find a man. Any man with any sense wouldn't waste his time with a person like that.

omg he is talking about me and he is soooooooooooooo right

z71 ... Maybe you should consider how old butter was when she made the decision to marry this guy. Probably in our 20's. She's now in her 40's...alot of wisdom is gained over those years. Also, at the time they married both were probably two different people from what they are today. Some people grow, others do not. It sounds like butter did alot of growing and coming into herself. Most people do not truly know themselves in their 20's. Most people (not all) learn who they are, their needs and wants, what's important to them in their early to mid-30's. The person I am today, is not the same person I was at 20 yrs. No one asked me to change, my personal development evolved over time with all of my life's experiences ... good & bad. Are you the same person today in your 30's as you were at 18, 20, or 25 yrs old? Did someone make you change? Or did it just happen. Couples grow apart sometimes because we evolve in different ways.

As a 42 Y.O. woman, I'm on MM because I want a man! And also because I have fun reading and contributing on the Forums.
Now, you can't just go out and GET the man who's picture you like best, so you have to play the games: send winks, send emails, send cell #'s,etc. I'm not particularly picky ... I want a man who's good-looking, sure! But one of the handsomest men I know is balding, wears glasses and has a little spare tire around the middle, but he's the sexiest man I know. So "looks" aren't tops with me.
A sense of humour really turns me on, especially if it's impromputu conversation ... not particularly Internet blonde jokes or some other FWD. That's uninspired and lazy.
I want a man who is financially stable because I'm not. I make a truckload of money sometimes and just live on that until it runs out, painting and writing and creating like the true starving artist that I am ... living for now, never worrying about the future.
Some men might snub me for being this way, but some day, (and I'm holding out for him) ... a man, perhaps a balding one with love-handles and glasses on, is going to say to himself, "That girl is maybe a little flakey and undoubtedly wildly creative! But I'm not going to let her get away from me just because I'm hesitant about one little thing about her! I'm taking her NOW! Poor math skills and all!"

That's the man I want. And I'll wait until he comes to get me.

Why do women or men not accept the person's character that they're dating? That's both a simple and hard question to answer.

Mainly, people are insecure. They look for other people to accept them and approve of their beliefs. If the other person isn't like their ideas, they need the other person to change so they can be right.

If a person doesn't love themselves first for who they are, there really isn't a chance they can love someone else for who they are.

Just a simple observation.
