In a rational dating world, he continues, smart men discount smart women because of their call options.
But smart women don't appear to be discounting smart men in the same way.
Now, if you’re anything like me unless Paul Walker tags me in a note, I could careless about what any other man wants.
Men will get what I give them but if you’re not like me, you might be curious to the validity of my friend’s desires. I don’t like the girls who think their sh*t don’t stink.
This isn’t me telling you what men are looking for. He’s worked considerably hard to be a person of quality, character, substantial intelligence and he’s pretty cute. I’m no matchmaker but you shouldn’t have to settle when the men you’re looking for are also looking for you! That’s a really great question, one that I will answer tomorrow.
This is a MAN telling you what men are looking for. Do you think this woman exist or are these qualities unrealistic?
Recently a friend of mine tagged me in Facebook in a note, one of my least favorite things.
Slowly, I caught on that I knew about dating and women was wrong. You love computers, baseball cards, classical music, anime? Kindergarten teachers, we imagine, are unlikely to appreciate the implicit connection the hedge funder makes between their profession and an inferior degree of professional success. Or are me and the anonymous hedge fund guy onto something? CNBC's Nicole Lapin doesn't think Carney's onto anything.Smart women have the same incentives as less intelligent women to date smart men, she contends: "First, if there is indeed more competition for [smart men] ...Mainly due to the title: Why is it so difficult to find a woman with great qualities? To those I may have offended I’m sorry, and to those with an opinion, your comments are welcome.I thought about this whole-heartedly because I wanted to give a great answer not just to my friend, who concurs his friends’ grapple with the same dilemma constantly but to my readers. But before we get to that, I want you to read in his own words, what this man wants in a woman. In my opinion, he has a right to raise his standards when it comes to dating.Why you may ask do I list these qualities, well here is the reasoning. It was the only time in my life that I got depressed: poor sleep, suppressed appetite, Kafka. The next kiss didn't come for another 4 years, when I was in medical school. Turns out that the skill set required to navigate the tricky waters of romantic interaction wasn't in any book I had read or any class I had taken. As guys, a lot of what we did in physics and math class was to try to straighten crooked stuff out. Let’s face it, we all want a great partner but if we aren’t wonderful ourselves that aspiration is simply unrealistic. I am not your past boyfriends, I am not your future boyfriend, I am the present. The reality of being picky in today’s dating market is that; many people just can’t afford to be if they contribute less value than who they desire. We all have family issues, money issues, school issues, work issues, etc., but beyond that I don’t have time for baby mamas, baby daddies, children, and all other nonsense. By the way if you have any of the latter, I’m not interested. I’m sick and tired of meeting women who have preconceived notions and stereotypes about black men. To understate things, I was a late bloomer in the realm of romance. This is a serious omission, since our relationships with others are the biggest determinants of happiness in our lives. I know it's fashionable amidst the smart set to be dissatisfied with yourself and to keep striving for more, bigger, best. And it wouldn't be a stretch to say that most people's lives revolve around their primary love relationship. However, women will tell you that there's nothing more attractive in a man than self-acceptance (which is the same as complacency).
