Just What do Women Want?

About 20 years ago, wow that makes me feel old, I broke up with a girl I thought I was totally in love with. I mean I felt like dying. Literally. I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t work. Her name was Terri.

Now Terri isn’t a strange or uncommon name like say Madelyn but its not everyday like Maria or Jane. Stop and think how many women you know named Terri. Let’s see there’s Terry Hatcher and theres…. Well you get the point.

I started seeing her name everywhere. It seemed like it was written on busses, on billboards, everywhere. It didn’t make me feel any better.

One of my friends came over to rescue me. He forced me to go to a bar with him. He wouldn’t take no for an answer. I didn’t want to go out. I just wanted to sit home and feel sorry for myself and contemplate suicide. It hurt that bad. Maybe thats why he dragged me out. Good friends are priceless.

I had been a good boyfriend. I paid for all our dates. I brought little presents unexpectedly. I sent flowers just because its tuesday, all that sappy stuff we think women liked. I never cheated or strayed. Yet I had been dumped. It was so painful.

For some reason I asked the bartendress. At first she thought it was a pick up line and believe me, even then I wasn’t that attractive. After she got over it, she said “maybe you are too nice”. How can you be too nice? She told me one of the biggest secrets I have ever learned about dating women. Women like guys that are a little dangerous. They don’t want guys like my dad who worked hard, came home every night precisely at 5:30 and took care of his family. They wanted a little excitement.

So we did an impomptu survey. We went around the bar and asked every woman in the bar if she had her choice between 1. A good guy who is always there for you and never even looks at another woman or 2. A guy who works hard and plays hard and makes passes at other girls now and then, maybe even cheats once in a while. Guess which one the really hot girls picked.

Go do this one yourself. If you don’t go to bars, ask the girls at work. Walk up to strangers in a mall. (this is a great opener by the way).

Hi, I’m taking a little survey. You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to, but I can’t believe the answers I am getting. And then lay out the questions. Let me know what you find.
