In a brief conversation a man asked a woman he was pursing the question,
"What kind of guy are you looking for?"
She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking,
"Do you really want to know?" Reluctantly, he said "Yes."
She began to expound, .... "As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask what he can do for me that i can't do for myself. I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man.. or woman for that matter. I am in a position to ask "What can you bring to the table?"
The man looked at her. Clearly he thought she was referring to money. She quickly corrected his thought and stated..
"I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life."
He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked her to explain. She said..
"I am looking for someone who is striving perfection mentally because i need conversation and mental stimulation. I don't need a simple-minded man. I am looking for someone who is striving perfection spiritually because I don..t need to be unequally yoked.. believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster. I need a man who is striving perfection financially because I don't need a financial burden. I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what i go through as a women but strong enough to keep me grounded. I am looking for someone who i can respect. In other words be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn..t taking care of his business. I have no problem with submissive... he just has to be worthy. God made a woman to be a help mate for a man. I can't help a man if he can't help himself."
When she finished her spill, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "You are asking a lot."
She replied,"I'm worth a lot."
So my girls .. remember never to settle. Somewhere, there's a guy that's going to appreciate you for who you are and will wake up every morning thinking "Damn .. I'm with her .. she chose me .." He'll realize how lucky he is to be with you and have you in his life and will try everyday to make it the best day you've ever had. Never settle for anythign less than that.
can i get an amen?
