ok props to me

(((PAT))) (((PAT))) (((PAT))) on my back.

Ultimate husband right here.

Cooks, cleans, vacuums, paints, does the car things, fixes things, does the romantic things, takes care of my lady, shopping etc.... and I do windows.

The wife knows it and that couldnt make me happier.

(I just always believed in being self efficient and self dependant. If you want it done right do it yourself)

Genius is sparked by other peoples ideas.

I can only say what impresses me, LT, but it's the little things that speak to your character. I notice when a man shows kindness and consideration for others. I notice simple courtesy. I notice how a man treats his parents. I notice when a man listens to me and to others when speaking. I notice when a man tries to take interest in things or activities his woman is interested in.

Here are some examples: Treating waitstaff with courtesy at a restaurant. Going to a musical concert he's not particularly interested in. Treating children and the elderly with respect. Visiting and calling his parents on a regular basis. Being kinder than necessary to all he meets, especially those having a rough time. Those things tell me about the man he is and will likely be the rest of his days.

Of course, if he can curl my toes with a kiss - that's icing on the cake!!!!

yeah my friend is a ball room instructor with his wife at BYU Utah and i asked him if he would teach me a dance or two. he said no problem. Dancing is not my favorite thing to do BUT i am willing to learn so that on my future weddin night, i dont look like a fool. But i have to be dating a girl first and i dont even have one picked out.

It's hard for me to answer the questions in poll....all of them could be impressive but also, all of them could be staged ploys with no depth of character, either.

What impresses me? Sincerity, courage, equality, humor, openmindedness, humility, thoughtfulness. If you are going about trying to impress someone, you're on the wrong path. Impress yourself and others will naturally follow.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I knew this thread was going to turn into this. Everyone is different and everyone is motivated by some, none or all of the poll questions. Have you thought of just becoming a Trappist Monk and not have to deal with all the emotional, touchy-feely stuff. Boyz and girls are different...end of conversation.

Time for a Bourbon and branch water (before I stick foot deeper into mouth).

My boy is dying to use the computer, so I wasn't able to read all the chat, but here's my take:
Don't try to impress. Just be you.
Remember, you're the only YOU there is.
Can you imagine trying to be someone you're not, and the perfect girl sees that and thinks you're not "the one"?

That would be a bummer for sure.

dh tried to impress me on our first date.
He showed me his brand new mustang. I didn't care - I'd had a mustang in high school and to me, it was just a car.
He had a Raiders sticker on it. I didn't care because I knew nothing about football (at the time)
What impressed me was when he started talking about his work. He was passionate about it. It was a career, not a job, but it was what he loved to do. His eyes lit up when he talked about it.

Bottom line: speak about what you are passionate about. If she couldn't care less, she's not your girl.

oh, and one more thing: fwiw, my cousin married the guy she met on eharmony.com
She said it's the best thing that's ever happened to her.

What gets my attention is a quick wit that makes me laugh. Hard to find.

I look for the deeper stuff later.

None of these things matter. But all of these things matter.
Treat a lady like a lady and don't try to put us into a slot.
Hope that helps!

I've never understood why you guys seem to have such a difficult time trying to "woo" us.. It's been said many times, but i'll say it anyways.. Just be yourself! What works for one girl, probably won't work for the next... be true to yourself, be faithful, and honest, and you won't have any troubles.. :)
