For Woman - Get What You Really Want In a Man
My good friend had an uncanny knack for getting
what she wanted. Whether she was in the market for a particular
pair of shoes or a certain kind of man, she scored every time.
When she decided she wanted to get married, she wrote a detailed list
of the qualities she expected in a husband (I did the same thing,
but the qualities I chose were different from hers). She wanted a
Owned his own house
Possessed a college degree
Made xx dollars per year
Had to be willing to have at least four children
On top of that, he would buy her an engagement
ring of a minimum of two carats with a Marquis cut, set in yellow
gold with platinum prongs.
She also listed another goal. She wanted to achieve
a 22-inch waistline so she could stick it to the daughter of her mother's best
friend, a girl she had been compared to all her life, when she walked
down the aisle on her wedding day.
She did look smashing in her wedding dress, she did get the ring, the
house, the children, the salary--all of it. What she also got was a
man who works most of the time. When he isn't working, he does not help
her with the children, two of whom suffer from developmental delays.

When I drew up my own list, I decided the man I'd marry had to be
And those qualities sum up the guy I married (after years of dating losers, schmoozers, and No-Show Joes)
You, too, deserve to spend your life with a man who loves you, supports
your dreams, and makes your happiness a priority. Choose wisely.
