    wow, the writer killed this…I’m a man, and everything stated in this article is true…guys will be willing to wait around for this…lol no tramps! but most of all every guy loves his attention cause in return, we’ll give it to you and treat you just as special, or visa versa. @05e9382885da624893cb508febd0e59d:disqus I think the author meant that the personality is to “be yourself” i.e. make your jokes, talk about what you enjoy doing or what music you like listening to etc. Some women can be self-centered, non nurturing, dishonest and insecure…but sex aside, isnt that what we want in any person?

    Simple rule…treat your man/woman-wife-husband as you wish to be treated..you want to be lied to or manipulated? Feel free but dont whine when it comes back to bite you on the butt..the biggest problem in relationships is thinking you can pull a fast one..and your partner is stupid..they may not notice at first..but the longer they (seemingly) don’t notice ,usually the bolder or sloppier the suspect gets..’til it’s boldly obvious….(beeeep) Game Over…

    If this is this is so on point then why is nearly fifty percent of educated,professional and successful black women in the U.S. Still SINGLE or dating outside of our race ???

    • MikeNike10001

      It is on point ,so many women get support in society for family, work, community, while men are hit from all sides..If a woman has a bad financial crisis, they can usually get some form of assistance. Men on the other hand are not allowed to be dependent..

    After reading this, it appears that I’ll be a SBF until I die. I’m emotionally immature, possessive(depends on how fine he is), scare normal men away with the things I’m into, and can’t cook rice properly…FML. I’ll create a robot like a lonely Japanese dude and give it extra hip thrusting strength. I’ll name it…Mendo Fukumi Fu Realz™.

        My rambling leaves everybody scratching their heads, hahaha. Pay no mind…

    LOL at the “return his calls in a timely manner” one…that would almost sound ok if it were coming from my EMPLOYER. As long as you have someone that isn’t into playing games then no need to say something like that, because only someone playing games would see that you’ve called and chose to wait a few hours to call back.

    It’s just so funny to me because I remember reading a “rules for dating” article that was on a website geared towards men, and one of the first rules was “don’t call her back right away because it will make you look desperate…”…smh at some of the “how to get a husband” articles on this site. I have no doubt that most of them are either written by some single man trying to find a perfect woman or by some single woman who has yet to find a husband herself.

    Okay I get where the writer is coming from with this article and it’s a good piece, but I couldn’t help feeling as though I was reading the rules to a game. Maybe it’s just the way the writer presented the points. I agree with Lyndon that these are traits a woman should have independent of being “wife material”. Not to mention the fact that these traits only summarize what some men (probably most) want. There was just an article on here about women wearing the pants in the relationship… Some guys like for women to be dominant. My point? There are no rules for stuff like this in my opinion. You have to be the person you want to be before you can be a person someone wants to be with…

    These are traits that all women should have naturally, especially the nurturing  trait. However, the number one trait is RESPECT. That means I must feel secure with who I’m with. And since I’m discussing respect, it is very critical that if I’m with someone that the majority of her friends/family loves me and supports our relationship.
    Games and puzzles are for fun, marriage is sacred and reality.

    Im lost. You suggest women be all the above and conclude the article with … “remember to ALWAYS be yourself”. What? No woman meets all these criteria after years of dating. Impossible. Every womans wiring will get crossed after a few rounds of f’d up realtionships. Sooo, how bout recommend they be “themselves” from jump without giving a script to manipulate a man based on what she thinks he wants. If she’s trampy, clingy etc. so be it. A man will marry every single type you listed if she’s genuinely trying to improve as long as she owns it.

    Pretty, check. Doesn’t talk too much, check. Has me wondering what she’s wearing underneath…, check. Can bring her home to Moms, check. Pause the DVD cause I gotta go “pay the water bill.”
