    Hmm...interesting point of view. I believe it. I think women often do that while they are in relationships as well. They often think they could change them over time for what they truly want/need. In reality, men are the best they will ever be when you are dating them.

    well, it depends on the situation. Your gut feeling is generally correct... so go with that!

    May be true. After marriage, the man finds out that what he liked as she was wasn't what she is! The women too finds out that what she thought could be, could never be!

    Well, to completely tear down the wall of self incrimination, the two greatest loves in my life were not "love at first sight" romances.  It took several encounters before I was smitten.  the ones that I tripped over myself for, those didn't start or end so well...not sure how that plays with your theory.

    This may indeed occur.......but I was attracted to the qualities my hubby already had when I met him.  Thirty years later, I still appreciate those things.........though, I am also, aware of the 'rough edges'.

    I did not date very much so I really have no good comparison. I can speak for  the few I dated and the man I am married. One common denominator in my experience is that , men do like women for who they are.I am a woman and i can only speak for my own experience with what women like in a man. I can say, I like a man for who they are at the moment. Not for who they will become in the future.Chemistry at the initial stage of the relationshipm is also a big factor for me. You can be wined and dined and treated on a high pedestal but If i can sense that this is all a show, chances are the relationship fizzles out and will not stand a chance.LOL, they don't call it mental telepathy or woman's intuition for nothing.My husband's personality has been consistent as far as how he treated me at the beginning of the relationship until now.And I really appreciate that. It is not all bed of roses for sure but , overall , It has not been bad at all. The other guys I dated were also about the same,nice and decent , it just was not meant that I will be  married to them.
