What does a woman bring to the table? Message Board

    I was talking to my friend, I'll call him George, and he asked me a poignant question, "If a man is wealthy, what does a woman bring to the table?"  I told him she might bring loyalty, love, affection, beauty, sex, and other needs for a man.  His answer was then all he really needs is a dog and a call girl to fulfill almost all his needs.  He then asked, "Is there anything else?"  I had to think about it but I didn't have an answer.  Maybe women here can help answer this question thoughtfully.

    Things a wealthy man does not WANT to get from anything except a wife. I.e.  he could get it from someone else, but prefers a single woman legally committed to him.

     

    1) Children.

     

    2) Bareback, no holds barred, kinky sex.

     

    3) More money - what, you think he has to marry below him?

     

    4) Good advice, connections, etc. (again, just because he has money doesn't mean he can't marry UP.

     

    5) Someone that can help them bury a body at 3 AM, no questions asked (or do other activities that require brains, trust, and no chance of being blackmailed.)  No, he can't do this with a friend - not if he is truly wealthy.

     

    6) Someone to understand and comfort him when he is at his lowest (a dog will comfort, but not understand - a friend my understand but might not be able to comfort him).

     

    7)  Someone he can trust will be there after the money is GONE.

    The right woman can compliment the man and viceversa!

    She can help the man the best he can be. Nothing else matters.

    I think I would be a better friend and more loyal than a dog lol that is for sure for the right man, I can bring a lot to the table, I am smart, give great advice, love to help people, I am honest and a great friend. I can have a great conversation with almost anyone, If a man is looking for an all around good woman, then I can bring a lot to the table and more. I am also graduating with a BS in biochemistry with a minor in biology in a little over 2 months from now, hopefully I will get my pHD in a few years so I will be able to bring even more to the table.

    Your friend is being over-simplistic. Now, I do know men that share his point of view. In theory, it makes sense that a dog and a woman just for sex could fill those needs. 

     

    Problem is that most men aren't built that way. They needs taken care of by beings that can challenge that man, can share experiences with that man. 

     

    I haven't had a girlfriend in a whileeeeeeeeeeee and I'm content. BUT, I know if the right woman comes along...I'll be thrilled to have her in my life. Human bonds can't be replaced by dogs and one night stands. It's like asking for an Incredible Hulk doll for Christmas, opening up the box and getting your sister's Ken doll painted green.

     

    It's just not the same.

    Quoting askmrknowitall:

     

    Women bring all of the things that men bring to the table PLUS the only things in life that really matter ,  beauty, joy, happiness, love, and most importantly they bring life, including the one your friend is apparently wasting.  The reason your friend doesn't know what women bring to the table is because he doesn't have any of those things that matter in his life. So your friend has resorted to the oldest trick in the book, pretending that MONEY is the only thing that matters.     

     

    Women control 3/4 of the wealth inside the United States.  Bring to the table, Hell, women own the table at which your unbalanced friend is sitting. You couldn't think of anything to say to him, well allow me to enlighten you and your friend. Your friend Sir is a sexist pig, and when someone make a sexist insulting remark such as he did, he should be called on it. And the fact that you didn't, makes me wonder about your taste in friends. Quick story !!

     

    ( oh no not another story knowitall please, smile ). When I was in college there was a girl who lived down the hall from me, she was about 4-11 tall, hair standing all over head, always dressed unfashionable, with thick glasses, on an academic scholarship with no money to spare , she was what men would call unattractive. We were friends, she was brilliant and I liked her (as a friend). So from time to time when my group was going out to party, I'd knock on her door and ask if she wanted to come. Her answer was always the same, I don't have anything to wear, and I don't have time for that foolishness. One night there was a big party and I insisted she come, same answer I don't have anything to wear.  I leaned over kiss her on the cheek and said don't worry about it, I'VE GOT YOU. I said there is a Good Will store on the corner we'll walk down and I'll buy you a dress. She agreed. We brought the dress, went to the party danced one dance ( she didn't know how to dance), she stated this is not my scene, I need to go study. I walked her back to her dorm, and went back to the party. Fast forward 40 years ( the length of time I hadn't seen this girl). I needed to have some medical test done. So I went to the City where her Clinic was located. Out walks this little  old woman ( hair standing all over head, dressed unfashionable, with thick glasses)   she has a PHD, a medical degree,  Showed me the operating theater, the school on the grounds where she teaches , the research center on the grounds. After the test were done, we went back to her office, I ask her, by the way, how much is all of this going to cost me. She got up from her desk, push a picture aside on the wall behind her desk, revealing a safe, she open the safe and took out a book, she open it up, said read this and handed  it to me. It read as follows:  Date 3-1-1968, Dear Diary, today my friend knowitall brought me the nicest dress I've ever had, he took me to the only party I've been to while in college, he's the only boy in college I've danced with, and he gave me the only kiss I've had in college. She then rose from her chair came around to my side of the table leaned other kissed me on the cheek, smiled at me and said don't worry about the cost knowitall I'VE GOT YOU. Tell your friend that his monetary net worth doesn't make HIM worth anything, only the things that he does with his monetary net can do that. If he's not careful someone may write the following about him someday . Here lies George, in life he was a sexist pig, now that he's dead he has more money than anyone else in the seminary, congregations George.

     

    So beautiful story! And reply

Orlando has, in a well-crafted manner put something out there with the hopes of eliciting a genuine response that might actually resonate with his spirit! Read between the lines ladies! He already knows the answer to the question. He’s fishing. I have a bit of an inclining of what I think he might be after here.  I’m new here. Don’t know him. But from one INFP to another… He very well may be the catch of catches. 

    It is obvious that he just works for this website to heat the forum and involve people to participate in conversations

    Ahh.. Yes. I hadn't considered that possibility. As I  mentioned I am new to MM.

    Quoting Smallest:

    I don't believe that there are stupid questions, but this is a silly one. Any man who has had a successful relationship with a woman, would never ask this question. However, looking at most marriages that I see, I don't think a lot of women are fulfilling their end of the deal. Realtionships should be mutually beneficial. I feel that when a man respects you and takes care or you, he should be respected in return and treated like a king. I may be a little old fashioned, but I believe that. A good woman should be a best friend, drama free, a confidant, beautiful, confident, generous, and a sexual goddess. Life is an adventure and is meant to be lived fully. Your significant other should be your playmate and partner in that adventure.

    Amen!

    Relationships are all about sharing life.

    Three things since the creation of man: Enhancement, Value, and Completion.  With respect, a man that have become bitter or do not know what he is looking for asks that kind of question and is simply probing. Trust this to be factual ... Men that are honest with themselves already knows what a woman bring to the table should she occupy his time on a regular basis. Wise men that are looking for quality over quantity quickly moves on should the person that they are spending time with doesn't add value, enhancement, and completion to their life.

    I feel a man or woman has to reach an age of maturity (or have an awakening) to realize what they want out of a partner or figure out what's missing in their life. You know, like that special connection with a person or religion.  A person who can enlighten you in many ways by sharing their experience and knowledge. Things you can share or teach each other. Share mutual respect and dedication to each other. Get lost in those deep conversations about life and why we are here or what is our soul purpose if any.  Someone to enjoy the last journey of your life with knowing they will be at your side every step of the way until that last breath of air.

    Ps, remember the 1990 film "Ghost"  with actors Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. It's the LOVE in your heart that goes with you in the end.

    An adult and mature man knows very well what womanbrings to him. Or to the table.

    Man and woman are two poluses, two dimensions - and that is why they are attracted to each other, as only in pair ( couple) they can reach harmony, they can fully realize themselves and each of them.

    Woman brings the energy to her man, fills him up, fills the space and the environment.

    Man creates the space, woman - fills it up .. with energy, warmth, love, emotions, whatever she has in herself.

    It has been like this from the very beginning - when people lived in caves - men were hunting and creating, women -guarding the inner space, filling, embracing, warming.

    How come people forget what the men and women are for ...?


    Makes me laugh -)))

    It absolutely depends on the type of woman:

    1.  GEORGEOUS no brain type => nothing!!  stay with the dog and the call girl.

    2.  NORMAL with brains and high moral values => support, sense of belonging, security, love, caring, and the possibility of forming your own family.

    The issue is that most guys always go with option 1 ... so intelligent for business but no so intelligent for other things ;)

    Best luck trying to go with option 2 the next time!!
