Thank you for posting that. Never heard it put that way...just beautiful.
The problem is, the two qualities that the piece advocates women seek in men are pretty much the exact opposite of what most women seem to be looking for nowadays.
I have been married 32 years and I can tell you marriage is give take relationship. I give and she takes. Their is no perfect man since we are all born sinners.
“Many women believe their man reaches near perfection when they can get him to stop leaving his underwear on the floor and he begins putting the dishes in the dishwasher.”
I can confirm that is does not end there.
This is really, really good. Thank you.
I love to see the long lists of attributes women will come up with for what they want in a man. Because it gives me the opportunity of asking to see the long list of attributes of themselves that they offer TO the man, and ask what they want to GIVE him. The blank looks I get in response are almost as fun as the slow anger that replaces it in a moment or two.
What they don't realize is that if a perfect man existed, he would want a perfect woman - because he would want someone who has put in the effort to perfect themselves just as he has. Most women's utter lack of humility (these days) blocks them from realizing that the LAST person they would want to be with is a perfect man, because they could never keep up.
In fact, many relationships die because the women strike out at men who are more of what they know they should be, but fail at. They PICK the man for his superior attributes, and then ATTACK him because they can't live up to his standard - which they required of him in the first place. Then, because his excellence shames them, they blame him for "making" them feel "unloved" or "unsatisfied" in some way, rather than respecting his model and changing themselves.
That's why so many men are staying away from women - their following of feminist ideology has blocked them from the humility feedback mechanism human beings need to learn and improve themselves. Feminism declares that women can learn NOTHING about character from men, and so attacks any woman who tries to. But without that, they have to blame men for their own failings, and thereby destroy the relationships they actually want, in order to appease the tyranny of their Leftist Feminist Mistresses who run their "Groups" (secret or otherwise).
Throw in the added insanity of antidepressents millions of women take to deal with this self-sabotaging group network and American women are basket cases. And that's exactly what they must be, in order to NEED the women's groups they belong to, and obey their orders (especially who to vote for).
And THIS is how Hillary has destroyed more American women's lives than cancer, heart disease and car accidents - and she's still destroying them (what, you think she's not running? LOL!).
Whether or not a woman judges a man as “perfect” depends on her criteria of what makes a man perfect in the context of the type of relationship she is considering. It is easier to find the perfect man if her criteria are not strict.
If one is honest in one’s own failings and faults, the feeling of aggravation with the other will be replaced with gratitude about the loving of “wenches like me.”
Humility, gratitude, and acceptance is not most recognized let along appreciated in men and women today.
