What kind of man I'm looking for ... ?

She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking, "Do you really want to know?"

Reluctantly, he said, "Yes."

She began to expound... As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for me that I can't do for myself. I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man. I am in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table ?"

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.

She quickly corrected his thought and stated, "I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life."

He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked her to explain.

She said, ..."I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection mentally, because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don't need a simple-minded man.

I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection spiritually, because I don't need to be unequally yoked. Believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster.

I need a man who is striving for perfection financially, because I don't need a financial burden.

I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, but strong Enough to keep me grounded.

I am looking for someone who I can respect.
In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn't taking care of his business.
I have no problem being submissive...he just has to be worthy.
God made woman to be a helpmate for man.
I can't help a man if he can't help himself."

When she finished her spill, she looked at him.
He sat there with a puzzled look on his face.

He said, "You're asking a lot."
She replied, " I'm worth a lot."

PS :
I got this email from my old time friend.

The title actually is "What kind of man you're looking for "
But somewhere inside me, whispered in my ears, brought me to my imagination ..
So, I changed it anyway ...
When I read this, I just said to my self, true ... so true ...

I have difficulties to pour what I have in mind into words...
What kind of woman I'm looking for?
That's maybe the reverse question to your question...
Nothing's wrong with that question.
Is that ego?
It should not be.
I am not an expert in relationship, but ego should be put aside to make it works and definitely from both side.
It takes two to tango, it needs both your hand to clap...
I am smart, and I want my partner to be smart...
I am decisive, and I want my partner to be decisive...
I am financially secure, and I want my partner to be the same...
I am educated, and I want my partner to be educated... will never end...
Like magnet, it could only unite if positive met negative..
You don't need quality that you already have, but look for quality that you don't have...
But the most important thing, you do have love and trust in your partner..

Pepenks : Can't agree more than you, love and trust should be on top of that. But, at the other hand, we should understand ourselves first, otherwise the love and trust that we have will vanish ...
