    Whether you are still a Bachelor or now married, what would you consider the most important thing you have/had to have?

    I would say for me it was...microwave, deep fryer, breath mints and a small pocket size "little black book."

        Wow I have never met a virgin over 20 years old. Good on you, but I guess if you never had it, you don't know what your missing.

          Can I know, What am I missing?  I think that whatever, I am missing will be forever, since I am going to get married soon. But The main problem is to search for a suitable Life-partner.  By the way, I will never loss my virginity, any way other than marriage.

      I'd have to say it would be an accommodating girl friend! I can live without just about anything except love!

      Peace from all the disasters and financial nightmares of two divorces is what I've needed most.
      And I have that now.

      Rebuilding, I need a comfy bed and a great computer most of all.
      But if you get me started, the list gets long. I like a well-stocked kitchen and place to entertain and cook for family and friends. Other than that, it stays pretty simple for me.

    Definitely knowing enough different takeaways/ restaurants so you never have to make your own food. That way you never have to mess up the kitchen, and you never have to clean up the kitchen.

    Most bachelors would not manage without a mobile, no way... That smart device will help you when you're hungry (pizzaaaa!!!), when something's unclear in household matters (mum, what's the difference between bleach and ironing liquid?), when your mood is down (whazzup dude, go for a beer?), when you're lonely (can I invite you to dinner tonight, miss?) and in all other situations immaginable. big_smile

      lol, so you know of some of our secrets?
      Over the years men have changed, but in a lot of ways we are still the same. Being a bachelor, um, oooover 20 years ago is way different than today.

      1. Black Lilly profile image60
        Black Lillyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        yep, there were no mobile phones then, and no internet. In addition, we used to take colour tvs as a cutting edge technology - so how many channels in that 50" plasma you said?
        wink

    The best part of being a bachelor is the spectrum of possibilities!

    Paper and plastic! Lots of great cereal! When me and my son were baching it we ate lots of cereal!  The first time my son thought I was crazy, we alternated KFC, meatball subs and cereal for dinner. When she got home my son told his Mom and he loved it. My wife wasn't quite as kind she was hurt that all the effort she puts into meals at least when she's gone I could prepare a proper meal for our son, ow! I made it better by being a bag carrier at Foleys(Macy's) for a day.

    Let's see...

    Oatmeal & Instant Mashed Potatoes (This might save your life)

    Ramen Noodles (Cheap, just like Oatmeal and Mash)

    Cereal (Ditto for this too)

    Coffee (More important to me than soda)

    Deodorant, soap, shampoo (Don't go out unless your "sure")

    Chick flicks-at least 3 (What?  Yeah, if you expect some female friends, you can't be watching Batman and Terminator with them...Don't worry, if you know what you're doing, you won't get through the entire movie anyway)

    Internet (I wouldn't be able to post this if I didn't)

    Library card (free movies, like chick flicks, and of course books galore...Internet too, but it's limited)

    Milk (What do you use for cereal, water?)

    Computer and Cell phone (I don't have to explain myself)

    And finally...

    A Car!!!  It's gonna be tough going everywhere on your mountain bike, especially if you live somewhere that gets snow!

      For me it would have to be a sense of comfort within my own place and presence.  All the technology certainly helps though.

    To me, basic needs aside, a car, mobile phone, computer with internet access, a few close friends to hang out with and a compatible girlfriend are very important.
