Bernice is an attractive, smart, funny, single woman who would love to be in a committed relationship with a man. And she knows approximately 1,700 attractive, smart, funny single women who would love to be in a committed relationship with a man.
Several times that I've visited my friend's wife, after talking with one of these women, she'll deliver a rant about how WRONG it is that that there are all these attractive, smart, funny single women out there and they CAN'T FIND A MAN. She has a theory about why this is, namely: Men are idiots.
She believes that men tend to have insanely high physical standards regarding the kind of woman they're willing to settle for. She notes that a guy can have tarantula-grade nose hair, b.o., that can cause migrating geese to change course, and enough spare tissue to form a whole new single guy, but this man can still believe that he is physically qualified to date Scarlett Johansson.
"What's wrong with these men?" She asks purely rhetorically. "Don't they have mirrors?"
It is true that men can appear to be superficial about what qualities they seek in the opposite sex, as shown in this scientific chart:
What Women Look for in Men
Intelligence, Kindness, a sense of humor,
a stable career, loyalty, honesty, integrity,
reliability, a willingness to share the load of
parenting and housework, good hygiene, and
a reasonable level of physical attractiveness.
What Men Look For in Women
But does this mean that men are nothing but a bunch of shallow low-life sex-obsessed horn dogs?
Actually, I'm not that shallow. Not by a long shot.
Read on if you have read thus far.
Confident, well-adjusted, fun guy looking for someone to share fun times and life's journey...I want our first meetup to be more entertaining than a cup of coffee -- being out with you has to be more fun that! How about an art gallery or taking in an event that's happening on the weekend nearby?
Good quote that I believe in:
Being MALE is a matter of birth,
Being a MAN is a matter of age,
Being a GENTLEMAN is a matter of choice.
I'm a divorced father of a wonderful girl, fourteen years old, who lives with me.
I like eating healthy, don't smoke - never have. Only wines for me, no beer -- except at someone's party/barbecue.
I love travel and each year try to go someplace special. Over the years, I've been to Bolivia, Columbia, Costa Rica, Egypt, England, Germany, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, Spain, Thailand, and Trinidad/Tobago. At one point, I lived/worked in Japan for five years as well.
I live within my means and don't owe anything but my mortgage.
I hope you will be real/be just who you are.
I hope you will be a woman that loves to talk but eager to listen as I am.
I hope you will be open-minded about other cultures, races and so on.
I hope that If you're only thinking of climbing the material or status tree, you will pass me by.
I hope that if you're looking for a deep, committed loving relationship that works each of the Five Love Languages (Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, and Acts of Service), that you won't pass me by.
