mating habits

Someone once told me that you should not only know what you want, but also what you won’t stand for. There seems to be a grain of sense in this. For me, I was always been clear on what I was looking for in mate (intelligence, sense of humor, attractiveness, ability and/or willingness to read assembly manuals, etc.), but what I am definitely not interested in has always been a little fuzzy. It has almost been one of those cross-that-bridge-when-we-come-to-it kinds of things for me when setting off-limit boundaries. Should we begin a relationship by saying to ourselves “if he bites his toe-nails, there will definitely not be a second date”, or should we assume that with time and home training, we can break our potential mate of this disgusting habit? Should we accept the bad in order to enjoy the good, or are the some things which no amount of good could justify enduring? I see myself as being a pretty easy going kind of gal, but I too have my limits. I can’t stand a whiner. This trait is barely endurable in children under twelve and should not be exhibited by grown men or women. I also won’t tolerate pretenders (those self-proclaimed PhD’s and experts on everything from astrophysics to ass wiping) who present themselves as knowledgeable and understanding whilst having no freaking clue. If you don’t understand something, raise your hand and your question will be addressed promptly. Other than that I am pretty forgiving, although I am not keen on finding dirty sock in the couch cushions, or anywhere other than the laundry basket for that matter.

I won't stand for oversensitivity. This is the ability to take any little thing and create a mountain out of it. Give it a rest girls!

I am so tired of walking around on egg shells that I will gladly go without a partner for the rest of my life if these types of females are all that are available.

luck of the draw people... luck of the draw. You never really know what you are in for until you are in it. You never truly KNOW someone until you actually LIVE with them and that doesn't usually happen until after the first or second date... um, or third. You know what I mean... you won't be attracted to the obvious things that repell you.

Well so far it looks like I'm ok. But does that mean guys get picked because they have the fewest faults? You know, like taking a multiple choice test where you choose the answer based on eliminating other answers you know are incorrect? I'll go with "C" Regis, and that's my final answer!

Communicate what you're not comfortable with. Don't assume we men
do know what you want or are able to read it out of blue sky.

Many woman try to 'train', but you should not, as you will
fail miserably or repell your partner while trying to.

> Should we accept the bad in order to enjoy the good,

That's a start. Asking for more good is your right, but don't _demand_ things.
