as usual, i got this from the email:

actually it was in response to: http://www.ironworksforum.com/ubb/no...;f=10;t=019027

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the
question, "What kind of man are you 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 myself.
I pay my own bills. I take care of my household with out the help of
any man...or woman for that matter. 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 help
mate for man. I can't help a man if he can't help himself. When she
finished her spiel, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled
look on his face. He said "You are asking a lot."

She replied "I'm worth a lot."

High expectations sometimes leads to high disappointments.

Looking for a perfect partner takes a lot of luck and hard work. I will settle for anyone that clicks with me.

Is she truly? To search for someone who isn't satisfied with status quo? It is my feeling that one should always strive to better oneself in every sense of the word. Really, she's just looking for someone of a like mind.
However...

I think she has her priorities mixed up. Demanding all that, and then says she's willing to be submissive?
Somebody needs to sit that woman down and have a little chat. She's *almost* there, but needs a little nudge. Nothing a cup of tea and a viewing of The Vagina Monologues wouldn't cure right up.

Interesting text. Some I can relate to but some parts is, well, almost offensive. I'll let you figure out which parts fall into which category. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Hiero, an attempt at a joke. Or?

I don't think she's asking for too much: a man who can have intelligent convos with her, a man who has the same beliefs, a man who can look after himself financially and someone she can respect. Apart from the financial bit I thought that's kind of what most people want anyway.

Seriously though, almost the same expectations can be demanded by a man from a woman. I know plenty of women who thinks self-improvement is a perfume. As a matter of fact, if a woman demanded that of me, I would expect the same in return.
