Without physical attraction, you could be describing your grandmother. Men and women want to be sexually satisfied.

OP... You make a good start but, really, there is sooooooo much more... and every man has his own unique wants and needs in a mate.

Samwiches, ham and cheese, egg salad, roast beef. All men ever want from me is my samwiches.


You must make good sammiches.

Is clear in her emotional needs.
Is a caring/heartfelt person.
She'd carry me down from the mountain if I got trapped up there. And I'd be there for her too.

Three things?

1. Real Mayo. None of the fake stuff.
2. French bread, never those fluffy stuff, it has to be hard and crunchy.
3. Good quality ham.

This is an interesting thread but how many men are writing what they think the female POFers want to here?

That sandwich is always special at the right time especially in the heart of a great game in football season, but grab one of the beers too. (oh how good it feels good to be spoiled).

Now after the game its for her.......

So what do I hope for mostly from a mate.
1. A caring best friend that respects and cares as I do for her.

2. A woman to drive me to be all I could be. (without any constructive criticism- argh) The motivation only a perfect mate can provide.

3. Oh yes - an always improving, creative, playful and exciting sexual relationship.

Live, laugh, love. Life is good.

I'm sure everyone wants that. Unfortunately, when it's in front of a person it's rarely seen. Why? I guess it's society in general. Too many to experience. I was told internet dating is like a fast food menu. Too many choices. I guess that is true for some. Most of us don't play those games.

Faithfulness seems to be missing from that list. What good is the first three without it?

Do you remember the good ole days when there were only books written by women for women about men detailing what it takes to get a man and keep him? Well now there are books written by men for women telling them what they need to know to get inside a man's head to keep him happy!

Spare me all this garbage ..It becomes a game and then once the ring is on the finger .. the worm turns so to speak. Both sexes get exactly what they deserve. Each and everyone of us is an individual and what works for you may not work for me. I believe I can send a fairly clear message to someone I am interested in what I like and don't like without hitting him on the head with it and if he choses to ignore what makes me tic ... well then not meant to be.

"slim waste"

Are you talking about those modern contraptions that compact your garbage into slim little squares?

Wow, I never really knew that that was a guy magnet, but I guess, men and their gadgets ;-)

Face it guys, we're beat. Enough of our part of the species have tried lying, misrepresenting, and in general bu11$hittin' for so long that the womenfolk are on to us ... they know the code of the man-cave.

We say: "kindness ... sense of humor ... honesty"
Their interpretation: "big boobs ... owns a bar on a golf course ... deaf/mute"

We say: "sincerity ... fun loving ... not into drama"
Their interpretation: "big boobs ... owns a bar on a golf course ... deaf/mute"

We say: "big boobs ... owns a bar on a golf course ... deaf/mute"
Their interpretation: "run"

Ladies, you have my sympathies.
(Yes, yes ... I know ... "big boobs ... owns a bar ... ...")

Duh...I just got it. He didn't say that's what a man wants in a woman.

He said, that's what a man wants in a 'mate'.

Now, that makes more sense. Don't most guys want their buddies to have a sense of humor as well as being hones. The kindness part may not be so usual, but it also explains the absence of looks. ;-)

Just when I think I have everthing figured out, I'm thrown a curve ball...
I just knew somewhere in the mix would be the old standby "twin sister".

A lover, a friend and an equal partner. (This premise doesn't really leave much room for development.)

Sex is always number one......but even better when you have two and three added to it...........

OT......Why do I have to limit it to three? Did a woman make up this rule????......

What I really want is an equal in every part of that relationship, and that alone will add up to much more then the numbers stated.

Just my opinion........

Abilty to communicate intelectually and effectivly
Ablity to fornicate with sensual abandon and feeling
Ability to manipulate me into thinking that everything she does is my idea in the first place and she loves it.

Sorry I love to cook so I can feed myself and if she don't clean I can hire a cleaning service. I don't need a mother I need a partner in crime.
