Well I'm one of those women who has 'sex appeal' yet have knocked back a number of proposals from wealthy men over my life, not because they lacked
social or worldly qualities but because they couldn't convince me, that should I suffer some accident or illness that removed that sex appeal, their
affection and loyalty would remain.
Give me a just, kind man any day! To be such a man today takes wisdom, integrity and courage, qualities that can stand true against the greatest of
Also men who care too much about looks, worry me that any 'imperfect' children who come out of the coupling, may not be unconditionally loved by
them or grow with a sence of being an embarrassment, something that can rob their generation of qualities they lose the confidence to display.
I hate the way the word 'partner' is used today because unlike 'spouse' it has become a temporary term that draws peoples focus away from the
many unexpected conditions and high and low cycles of a "life long" partnership, that could include decades of caring for a bed ridden cripple and
any children you made together.
If you can't take comfort from someome under the worst of conditions, they aren't your partner, but a 'team mate' who could, at any time, sell
their 'loyalty' to any better 'paying' team.
Yep, I'm old fashioned enough to believe, "doing what's best for you" should never come before, "doing the right thing", so looking for a mate
you can 'get' the most from is the first step to being a taker and not a giver, the bane of modern life for all.
Think about it, "looking out for number one", means it's you against the world, everyone against everyone else; with impossible odds like this, how
did that idea ever take off?
To me a man with money, sans integrity, is no man at all.
