Though I cannot (and most certainly would not presume!) to speak for all women, here's what we (read: I) want, or need, a man to be able to do:
Put. down. the. toilet. seat.
(for crying out loud YOU CAN POINT AND AIM! Why, oh why, do you so often MISS?!!)
Ok, seriously now.
Show me kindness. Show me consideration. Laugh at my (often lame) jokes from time to time. Give me a hug "just because". Or for no reason
at all. And realise that if we argue, it doesn't mean we don't love each other.
Know that I'm not perfect - and know that I don't expect perfection, either. You don't need to be Superman, or Supercute, or Supercool. I don't
care if you're 90 or 500 lbs. I don't care if you can build me a house from scratch, or if you'll be happiest living in a tent. I do care about
what you think, what you say, and what you need.
A man who looks good with a hammer, and can build a fence is great....but a man who can be my rock, my friend and
my lover will have my
respect, my love and my attention for a long, long time...
(though if ALL of the above apply.... that's not necessarily a bad thing...
