      Man's view: The love of a woman.

      Respect.  If they have respect, they were raised well.  If they were raised well, then I'm sure they have a lot of respect for their mother and then of course love and adore her.  If they have respect for their mothers and treat her well.  They will definitely know how to respect you and treat you well.

      Nothing is more sexy to me, then a man who always treats me with respect and shows respect for himself through his choices and actions.

                  well, i can see the ability to listen complementing intelligence.  people can be intelligent but.....and listening skills may develop over time.  listening has to be there from the beginning now.

                  Now, the candy part, should just continue to get better with time.

      thats assuming they have integrity for a reason that would be commonly accepted as good.

      I knew a guy who truly believed he was right in all things, and he had a wacky set of morals, but he had alot of integrity for those beliefs. He held on and never gave up on his deep set beliefs. I am pretty sure he is still in prison.

      Justine76posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      compatablity is not a quality of a person. It is what happens when two people have the same set of values and beliefs.

      If a man had great amounts of integrity, but did not feel the same as I do about children, we would not be compatable.

    Hey Justine, I take it that you've met very few people with Integrity. And, I mean, people who understand the word and it's meaning.  A person with Integrity knows how to find balance, so you wouldn't have that problem about different views. Unless, your own integrity was in question or on the level of him.  Otherwise, it all falls into place.  wink

    in·teg·ri·ty [ in téggrətee ]


    noun 

    Definition:
     
    1. possession of firm principles: the quality of possessing and steadfastly adhering to high moral principles or professional standards


    2. completeness: the state of being complete or undivided ( formal )
    the territorial integrity of the nation


    3. wholeness: the state of being sound or undamaged ( formal )
    public confidence in the integrity of the voting process


    (I guess I have not met many who match up to definition 3.) every man I have ever met believes they are in line with def. 1. I might not have agreed with them, so therefore...we were not compatable.

  36. Cagsil profile image60
    Cagsilposted 6 years ago

    If you did not agree with them and you were honest with yourself in making that assessment, then apparently they were liars, because their integrity actually didn't stand up to what they claimed themselves.  Therefore, you are incompatible for that reason and no other.

    Integrity is the foundation of honesty and love. End of story!

      Justine76posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      hmm.....

      I cant quite say what I mean too here. Integrity is an amazing quality, I am not contesting that.

      I am saying, compatablity has nothing to do with a single person, it has to do with if two people get along.

      And I can promise you, I am nothing if not honest.

      1. Cagsil profile image60
        Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I can understand where you are coming from, but you have to realize that it really does come down to an individual's integrity.

        Because, if another person sees that a person lacks integrity, then ONE person can determine whether or not compatibility actually exists.

        You can tell the integrity of a person, via the words they speak and every action they do. You do not even have to meet this person. You could be overhearing a conversation, become impressed by the person's way of speaking. You could see someone do something that shows obvious integrity trait, and assume whether or not you are compatible with that person, even though you do not know them.

        I hoped that helped.

          aaaa...I see.  wink  without integrity first, there is nothing else after. BUT simply having integrity will not ensure compatability?

  37. SmilesDoc profile image61
    SmilesDocposted 6 years ago

    Integrity? That's a leader's quality of living authentically, of keeping promises. An almost forgotten word these days.

    I think what women fall for is the illusion of integrity. The real deal is much less charming.

    It's like honesty - everyone says they want it, but unfiltered honesty isn't exactly warm & fuzzy. It can be downright mean.

    When a woman asks a man, "How do I look?" before a date, that isn't the time for pure honesty. She wants to be validated so she can feel wonderful. (OK - I read Men are from Mars...)

    What women are really are really looking for is lack of deception. They keep falling for Prince Charmings that turn into frogs after the kiss.

      Justine76posted 6 years ago in reply to this

      when I ask "how do I look", I actually want to know. If I look awful, and dont know it, I would really like to be told before I go in public. If I don't want to know, if I am fine with how I look, I don't ask. Honesty is never mean. Mean implies an intention to cause hurt. Truth simply is what is. Yelling out what your opinion is, without being asked, can be mean.

      1. SmilesDoc profile image61
        SmilesDocposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Honesty and kindness are 2 different qualities. Of course you want the full measure of both, but kindness massages the truth to the point it barely resembles honesty.
