I agree, ddaquila, and that's great to hear your good fortune to be with your best friend :)
Ddaquila: Do those "real qualities" that a woman admires in a male friend include...gullibility and long suffering? :0)
Don't get me wrong; You only really get to know someone when you let them in to this extent, and it gets hard, sure - but if it's with the right person, it's worth it.
CJ:Sometimes it's better to do the all or nothing approach. It can suck otherwise.
Thank you, stricktlydating.
Good stuff, Dashing. I think for the moment I need to avoid all love songs, especially Michael's.
CJ, That's too funny! It's always the heartbreak songs that resonate. :-)
Thanks for your insight, Dashing....I never thought of that song as a "friend zone" song but yeah, now that I see more of the lyrics, it seems best to avoid that one if you're stuck in the "friend zone" with somebody!
Thank you, abbykorinnelee.
Thank you for your input. I think you raise an interesting point.
Thanks, CJ. I think you have some very good points here.
You are focusing on the wrong type of woman, CJ! There are women out there that will marry for LOVE; not wealth, status etc. TBH I couldn't care less if I lived in a box as long I was with the person I love. It just comes down to who it is.
If that's truly how you feel, Deborah, then you are one in a million!!! It just seems that most women seek security, prestige and wealth but gamble on character, integrity and love. The first 3 are requirements, whereas the last 3 are negotiable. :0)
Oh, CJ! It looks like you've been hurt baaad. Ddaquila is not one in a million. I second her thoughts. It also comes down to how much each person wants to sacrifice for love of the other person.
Your answer is refreshing. Too many women are settling for men that "look good on paper" In fact there is a book for women titled "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough" Each of us deserves to be with someone who loves and desires us.
There's a disconnect, Dashing, because most women end up hating their relationships. 80% of divorces are instigated by wives and 90% of couples who have been married 10 years say they're not happily married. In romance...women often make poor choices
Thank you for your answer, ExoticHippieQueen.
