      The problem I face is that everytime I conjure up the perfect mate I run into this problem. I respect and desire intelligence but if she is smart enough to suit me she is smart enough to have nothing to do with me. Bottom line is that my perfect match is too good for me and that sucks.

    Crazy in a cute sort of way, smart, common sense, a man's man, talented at something, looks good dressed up or down but definately has to be stylish, clean, handy, hunky, poetic, brown hair or blonde with brown undertones, brown eyes, about 5'10, broad shoulders, nice arms, strong jawline and chin, could really like to cook, this would be helpful and creative, maybe could own a Jeep, likes to travel, likes shoes but doesn't always have to wear them, clean fingernails, non-smoker, non-drinker, must love healthy food and lifestyle, would help if he was good at something that I'm not, and some guys really like to vacuum.  This is weird but that could be thrown in as a bonus.  Not too opinionated but good conversationalist, not a flirt or a show-off, doesn't have to prove anything.  Well, that's enough for starters.  Oh, and maybe British.  Aussies are ok, too.

        Perfect match dot com sent me to you. Don't ever trust that site again as you can see what the results are. Everything is a match except the financially secure by most starndards.part. My riches are measured in experiences and memories and I feel I am on the forbes most wealthy Americans based on this. I tried the buy a house, act responsible and stay in one place for the rest of your life routine, It didn't work. I have too strong a need to see what's over the next hill to spead my life in a valley/rut/socially acceptable lifestyle..

    We can daydream all we like, but if we've drawn a partner into our lives, it's the person who is meant to be there with us at this time.  She/He is our major catalyst in our lesson of learning how to relate with love.   That's my belief, anyway.  Oh, and we do have free will.  It's one of those Divine Dichtomies.  Fate and free will are both operating.  We can choose to walk away.

    That infinite intelligence we label under varying names such as God, Allah, Jehova and the like does not, according to Albert Einstein's quotation:  "God does not play dice with the universe," make any mistakes.  So why give yourself a hard time by fighting against WHAT IS. Make a choice.  Oh, yes, and choosing not to choose is also a choice.

    My perfect mate would be very compatable with me! We would have a lot of things in common. He would be able to almost finish my sentences because he knows me so well. And me finish his!

    We could talk about anything, no matter what it is and everything will always be okay!

    Looking in his eyes, I could feel his love for me! And when we talk it would never be boring!

    Oh wait! I've found all this!

    I could end up liking any girl if I talk to her enough. Some of very attractive ones usually get more unattractive as I talk to them more, since they never really learned anything and only get by on looks.

    At a party many years back, someone suggested that we describe our sexual fantasies.

    As it went around the room, various situations were put forward, with the expected stupidity from most of the men.

    When it came to my turn, I just looked at my wife and announced "I married my sexual fantasy."

    Which was and still is true, but it sure ticked off every other man there as their wives melted and cooed their approval.
