OP, perhaps you should have been more demanding in choosing a wife that was less demanding thus that would've saved you the headache of all the supposed drama & tantrums she threw at you for not getting what she demanded[
I can't speak for the authour of this but my guess would be that it's the wordplay involved in repeating the word "demanding" that might make it a bit funny. The use of the word "supposed" kind of makes it seem less funny and more of a dig but that's just fine. The funny thing is, this comment is a bullseye - I had so many opportunities to walk away but didn't. I like this quote because it reminds me that there is a balance between being true to yourself and your needs and being a Demanding Customer.
The person you're looking for in a date has to be compatible with you on an ongoing basis. You don't just swallow what's there; you have to find enough of what interests you mutually in life. It really isn't about cooking up drama by being too picky; it's about knowing what you want and not putting up with a simple solution, not just taking anybody that comes along
Compatible on an ongoing basis...would you be kind enough to share your secret with us? Such knowledge will not only make me rich, it will probably make me the King of the World! The fact that you seem to be able to do this with a keyboard is even more astounding. Nothing I've written should suggest that I think people shouldn't have standards or express their needs and wants when searching for a date. I use the word date to distinguish between those searching for a mate. The internet can help us find dates quite easily but it isn't possible to find a mate, without going out on dates. Lots of folks seem to think they can order up a Prince Charming or the female equivalent, and never have to leave their house. Maybe they can, who am I to say different? That certainly ain't my style though.
I think it's important to know yourself and your own needs enough to narrow and focus your search efforts but there comes a point where the Law of Diminishing Returns comes into effect. I don't know about you people but I most certainly have fallen in love with women I might never have expected to get involved with. In fact, every major relationship I've had was with someone that wasn't my idea of a perfect match. I don't even understand how a long list of demands has anything to do with love or relationships - I guess I just see people and the world around me in a very different way.
