You forgot the subservient part . . . . .
Seriously. the qualities I found most important in my future wife:
1. Hi I.Q.
She is practically a McGuyver, and when I met her, she was working 3 jobs! She can carry on a meaningful conversation on so many topics.
2. Sense of playfullness
More than merely a sense of humor. I mean, heck, Bill Maher has a sense of humor but I don't want to be married to him! My wife is "cute" when
she's being playfull. When she hears me come home, she and all the kids will hide from me. She loves to be tickled, etc. She makes a lot of
"private" jokes that are frequently raunchy, but that no one else catches. we share a private world.
3. She "presents" well.
She looks stunning in an evening gown and expensive jewelry, and she can eat off the good china and make conversation without it being forced. I've
never had to worry that Frau Dr. was going to start a discussion of Celebrities who eat placentas while we were sitting down to a meal with business
colleagues in a fancy restaurant. She knows what wine to serve with ham, etc. She can be droll and amusing without being artificial. Parties in our
home are well attended. The last dinner party was supposed to be from 6:30 - 9:00 p.m., and people stayed until midnight!!!
4. Competent and Interesting in her own right
My friends like being around her. Everyone enjoys time with her. If I died tomorrow, she'd be devastated, but she has her own career and already
"has a life of her own." Which is why I wanted to share it in the first place.
Now, I don't believe in love at first sight (although we had that). I think I'm good enough that I could be happily married to most
well-adjusted adult females. But I only wanted
to yoke myself to her.
Everything I ever wanted.
The only regret was that I was 30ish by the time I found her. She says I was killing time 'til she graduated from college!!
