Women, what do you want from men other than money ? Page 3 of 23    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23)
Hmm...I've had to think about this one to really figure out what I do want from a man. Any woman's list will probably include a guy who takes on trash duty, smooshing spiders, carrying heavy things, etc...

But this is what my list will include:
1) Intimacy - being able to reflect and talk about our day, while "spooning" together.

2) Honesty - a man who says what he means, and means what he says (I'm no mind reader and don't expect him to be either) unless those pants really DO make my ass look big - then a tactful response is required.

3) Kindness toward others, not just when he wants something from me

4) Integrity - a man who wants (not expects) to be treated well in his professional and personal lives because that's how he treats others

5) Someone who truly wants to grow old with me and to someday watch the grandkids play

6) A man who won't make fun of me when I cry at sappy movies, but will hand me the tissues and hold me until I feel better about the ending

6) And yea...okay...I'll admit it too - Great Sex! (yea, baby!)

And if he has money, fine. If he wants to share a bit of it with me, that's fine too. But I have my own money and shouldn't be the sole financial supporter of the relationship. In a perfect world, good relationships are built on equality - each person gives 110% of themselves equally. Now if I just had a map to that perfect world.

Happily ever after.
Romance is the only thing I want.
If we have that the rest works out naturally.

Well, not being a 'lady of the evening', I guess the money thing's out, so how bout a nice cupa tea, a foot massage, maybe a chocolate chip cookie and OH!.......when you leave, you'd close the lights and door?????? Seriously though, I'm no fool and I do talk to a lot of men (male dominated work place), and yes you are right. A lot of men do feel the same as you. Shame really, when the majority of women aren't all tied up in your bank balance, but more concerned about how well balanced you are as a person.

From the OP, Post #1:


OR ... is this a taboo subject? Maybe it is ... but stereotyping men appears to be allowed ......
One mustn't mention what a heck of alot of men feel .... but cannot say , because ... it's .... not .... PC.


In reading many of the female's comments, it that all we have to choose from is many females choose to have less or equal integrity to a prostitue?


No wonder Mary Magnalene and Rahab at Jericho were allowed into the Jewish congragation. Their integity and willingness to transform and change their life was greater than most females on the NA Continent. I'm not a frequenter, but is a woman who is an obvious prostitute with greater integrity than those pulling a con on the sly?


I don't know anything, but should a man Christian or not just *rent* one of these girls since so many have no idea what's going on?

Strange, I thought they printed 'In God We Trust' on some type of currency?????????

Where do they get that!

Sorry for not reading the entire thread. I hope I'm not repeating here.

I NEED a MAN who isn't afraid to show me how good he feels when I look in his eyes or when I...well...give him whatever he wants and everything he needs :) A man who can keep me under his SPELL

We WANT a good looking guy that owns his own home and car a good job and treats us like a queen,is a good lover and thoughtful, never forgets our birthday, takes out the trash and helps with dinner, takes us out once a week for a date night and never cheats or lies to us. Now what we GET........A guy that is to cheep to take us out and wants his food on the table when he walks in the door. Never takes us out to a movie and only rents red box movies and it must be something he likes. Never dresses up wears old dirty T-shirts and will not shave unless he is going to see his friends, lies to us and cheats when ever he thinks he can get away with it...........So what we WANT and what we GET are two different things.........

I would like a man to use the WD-40 spray and unhook the latch on my car hood.
I think it needs oil too, and maybe water. Not sure.

I don't want your $$. I also don't have any, so if you're looking to take mine, you're just S.O.L.! What I want/need, is a man that isn't afraid to be a man, let alone a human being. Be passionate. Seduce me and let me seduce you. Beat your chest when you need to, be gentle when you need to be gentle. Have emotions. Be happy. Get mad. Laugh. Love. Cry. Shout. Support me (emotionally) and let me support you. You be strong for me, and accept my being strong for you. Enjoy living life with me. Hold me. Hug me. Cherish me. Brush my hair from my eyes and kiss me. And I'll do all of this for you............................ That's pretty much it. It doesn't take $$ to make the world go round, it takes love. I understand $$ makes the tough times easier, but if I had to chose love or $$, I'd take love.

Wow for starters, NOT to lumped into the same group of goldiggers you've apparently tried to date in order to feel the need to post this forum...LOL

I do notice that you have a pic of you with an expense house on the water in the background, a couple pics of you possibly traveling, and you mention the restaurants you'll take 'her' to and all the flowers you'll bring "her".....

Take all that stuff out of your profile .....all of that stuff is a just a calling card for "any woman who wants to be pampered and taken around the world and given stuff, write me!"...

Ceratinly maybe none of that was what you were going for, but for golddigger women, that is what your profile screams...

I agree w/ Teresa!!! HONESTY is a BIG first, LOYALTY and if he is rich that is just a perk!!!! I thought that I had found that "LOVE" thing too, but I think in addition to what Teresa says Honesty and Loyalty MUST be part of the LOVE definition. Well, good luck to all of those still looking....(I think I'll be taking a break for quite awhile).

So a woman admits to wanting a man for their money
Posted: 7/22/2007 10:02:04 PM
The second reply to the orginal poster said either money or sex.

Thanks for being honest about the money part. No womder so many guys are dating y9ounger women who might like them for who they are before they get such a high opinion of themevles as they get older.

Or men go to another country in search of love.

American woman are not universally liked in other countries. Try reading the forums like czechtv.com.

And look ant the FAQ under expatriots. Then the sub post American women.

I have decided this site is worth what you pay for it-nothing unless you like to be insulted!

Wow Civic, your profile is as lovely as your comment......

Online dating is supposed to be a tool for dating , and not the ONLY effort that a person puts in....

With all the horrendous negativity posted, no wonder it's hard to find someone

The biggest reason I see for either gender for lack of success dating, is the freking insistence of stereotyping an entire gender based on your personal experiences……

I dated a guy for over two months and we saw each other almost every single day and after two months, he blurted out that his friends told him I must a very good liar if he’s never heard me be ****y or treated him badly. Then he said “I know you’ve not giving me any red flags yet but you will, you’re just very good at hiding your true self, better than any one I’ve ever dated…..you can fool me for awhile but someday I’ll see the real you because all women are ****es and gold-diggers”…can’t imagine why I stopped dating such a gem of a man!

It is a mans job to provide and support a female and children. Non supportive men, men who refuse to provide, who use the term gold digger are verbally abusive males, using the word gold digger, ho, biatch, eic. is done to verbally abuse women. Such verbally abusive men are most often robbers and purse theif men who also rob milk and cookie money from children. Such men do not provide for women or children, they run out when the bills are due, they refuse to put a roof over a woman or childs head and they are obvious verbal abusers and physical abusers of women, and very often physical abusers of children also. They are broke men, bust out men, greedy men, selfish men. exploitative men, men in deep debt, bust out men, mentally ill men, wanna be pimp men or cheapskate men who refuse to support a female. Such abusers will rob women blind or work women to death if they can. Such men are abusers and wanna be giggilos and very dangerous as they will lie, rob, con, rape and even kill to get money from women, children (think child sex porn peddlers) the elderly or other males. They are purse theif males, robbers, that get furious when a female or court insists they step up, be a man, do their husbandly duties, or fatherly duties and work and pay the bills. Men who call women names like gold digger, b-tches, ho's, etc. are verbal abusers who are pissed because those men want to rob any woman or children they can. Gold diggers as opposed to what...... Sh-tdiggers? These men would not know gold from sh-t or fools gold, they do not know sh-t from shinola, they are just cheapskate non supportive men who refuse to provide for females, they are female haters and women and child abusers that refuse to provide. They are undesireable males, avoid them and call 911, or use pepper spray if you meet one.
Women must have financial empowerment and administrative empowerment if only to avoid and reject non providers and non supportive men and make sure such men who abuse women and exploit children, (think men who exploit children as child slave labor, etc.) women are now empowered to reject such abusive men, and abusive men must be kept away from women and children and locked in prison cages where they belong. see ** Spam Link Snipped **

To be honest what I want most is a man that wants a real relationship. That means a closeness more then just sex. I want someone that can hold me and I can hold him too. Be there for each other and support one another. As for money Ijust want him to be able to support himself and be able to take me out every now and then. That is all oh wait change a my tire when it is flat.. I hate changeing tires lol

I think we should reverse this question in another thread. (Men, what do you YOU want from women other than money (and sex)?) H*ll, I just want a guy who can stand on his own two feet financially and has a j-o-b. Ooo such high expectations I have. Seriously in the new millenium I think the playing field has leveled out, and there are just as many men looking for women with money as vice versa.

That is just not right! I have dated very few men who do not expect me to pay! I have a decent job and all I find are bums who want free sex and their stomachs fed and to be taken care of! I have raised six children on my own and I really don't want to take care of another one so at this point, I am really not dating, go out see what they are about, usually buy my first meal and then I don't go back as they mostly want to be treated instead of even going dutch.
