I think it's interesting if you try to set two people up on a blind date, the man will always ask "What does she look like?" and the woman will ask "What does he do?". Thousands of years of evolution and we're all still hard-wired like we're in the stone age. Woman still looks for the best provider she can get and dolls herself up with make-up and implants to land the richest man she can, while the man furthers himself in his career to get the hottest babe he can, and keeps trading up as his salary increases.

Deal-breakers for men: she's homely, fat or said "no" on the second date.
Deal-breakers for women: he's poor, I can't trust him, no sense of humor.

Women say: He may be fat, bald and 78 years old, but he's a billionaire, so I'll take him. (eg: all Hefner's GFs and wives, Murdock's hot Asian wife Wendi, Anna Nicole Smith, etc.)

Men say: I'm a rich mofo and I want HER. (Trump, Murdock, that Lost actor who married the 16 year old last month, etc)



It's natural, predictable and nothing to be ashamed of. Male teachers probably screw their students all the time, but it's the Mary Kay Letourneaus of the world that make the news because it goes against type.

two thoughts:

*a man has millions of sperm. A woman has a few eggs. This demands a different strategy for each through the eons. Note that even if you do not plan to have children that you instinctively are guided by this anyway.

*regarding judging a man's wealth by his display of wealth, I'll relate only the last story I heard: a co-worker's sister ran into a man with a nice sportscar, house, and a purported six figure income. She got pregnant, but he doesn't marry her. As she sues for child support she finds he is in hock to his eyeballs and made about 40K per year when he is working. He doesnt always have work. Naturally my co-worker and I have been marveling at how women can be duped by these people.

I smoke cigars on occasion, does that count?



Ooo -- disgusting. However, if it is just once in a while it isn't a deal breaker, but would be strike one.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Sorry, Hotblond, but I cannot accept your premise that there are five qualities which are truly nonnegotiable.

EVERYTHING is negotiable.

Not too surprising, as a few thousand years isn't long enough to evolve away us being upright, naked apes walking around looking for berries and meat.

judging by this thread, evidently there is some residual instinctive urge to do something else while naked too [g]

Men are often duped too, but its so much easier for a woman to dupe a man. Women tend to be trusting and to base decisions on such items as: clothes, car, manicured nails, etc.

Perhaps we should all advise Hot Blonde to be certain to hire a private detective. I know one girl who was a minor when she married. She retained a CPA and a private detective first though.

Or as one comedy writer on a soap opera put it " Men like that are everywhere, you can spot them by their wedding rings".

I'd say to Hot Blonde: Never settle.

(Of course the contrary advice would be that cartoon featuring a spider-web bedecked skeleton sitting on a park bench and the caption "Waiting for the perfect man".)
