Re: What Are Women Really Attracted To?

"Women think with their vaginas"???? Puh-leeeeeeeze.... YOUNG women, maybe... who tragically, mistakenly think they don't have anything else to offer. Women with sense (and class) do NOT think this way AT ALL. Clearly, the author has unresolved issues, no doubt fueled by chasing some woman who didn't give him the time of day after he had his way with her and bought her groceries.

I know that's not funny, but it is. The last few responses reminded me of two extremely cool work friends from way back, Jenny & Malclom.

He also had a great sense of humour and was very left wing. Malcolm was 40+ when I met him. Both had had divorces and each had a teenage child. Malcolm hated elitism of any kind, so...

i really like this question... but I'm not sure how to approach it. My understanding is that African society is/was matriachal, whereas western culture is patriarchal. I don't see why societies can't be pamatriarchal?? For real, I can't understand why men and women can't work in unison as a partnership. My relationships have been that way and people cannot relate at all. Why the heck not? Why does it have to me male vs. female? Why can't there be balance? Are people afraid of that? I don't...

"Thank you" , he said with deep bow and a flourish of his cape and rapier... I agree. But, how is that different from men? Men have to use a mix of assertiveness and cunning to survive in a male-dominated world. Like my dad says, "Life's tough all over". I resent the idea that women have it harder just because they're women. In some areas, they will have a harder time, but it's not as if men don't have their areas of inexpertise, or down right incompetence. As do I, but a true partnership...

You can still have love, but that should not be the foundation that the relationship is standing on. The concept of love just does'nt have the muscle to carry the weight. Plus mutual respect (garnered from both people fullfilling thier educational, employment, and other goals)has proven to be way more effective. Relationships (in my view) should be processed as K=f(x); K= Relationships f=function x= all variables that will ensure a successful and rewarding partnership. After all, in the end...

Not so much "arranged" as a "true business partnership". Arranged marriages does'nt mean equal accountability between the two parties. My way, both people bring something in the relationship to "balance" everything. ie) One has a house, the other has a sizeable stock portfolio. Something like that. Me "feel"? That would ruin the relationship. We gotta good thang goin on.

Hate to say I admit that I agree with you, Gam, but you are on point.

Marriage is a contract that can be broken easier than any other, and it should not be that way. A partnership agreement (rather than a prenup) should be written after the engagement and prior to the wedding. It takes a fool to learn that love don't love nobody...

Marriage is a legal thing, not spiritual. You do not need a priest or a pastor to end a marriage, you need a couple of lawyers and a judge. You do not even need anything religious or spiritual to get married, you need a legal document signed by the county clerk, not a preacher. If that is your definition, you need a new dictionary (union of opposites my eye).
