Again, we have the eternal theme of a female in search of her prince. Perhaps this is a joke, but I doubt it because many of my female acquaintances had similar lists in their 20's. A man must meet a number of specifications to even be considered as a partner, with some of the requirements bordering on absurdity. I think it's better to not have a list of criteria for a romantic partner. This limits your choices mentally, as it is highly unlikely any man will embody all of a woman's preferred attributes. More imporantly, there is no magic formula for passion or attraction. I'm a minimalist, so if I had to pick two criteria, the man must be (1) very adventurous; and (2) open-minded. I don't care about country of origin, skin color, profession, or income. Intelligence is also at the top of the list, but open-minded people are rarely dumb. They have a natural sense of curiosity and thirst for knowledge, which is highly attractive and arousing.

Did you create a list like this while searching for a partner? I've never once heard my male friends have so many preferences for a woman. Usually it is enough that she is breathing, spreads her legs, and doesn't nag too much. :)

Теперь мужчина, которого я считаю идеалом для себя, должен обладать следующими качествами:

1. Мой идеальный мужчина должен быть уверенным и мужественным. Таким, чтобы про него можно было сказать: настоящий мужчина.

2. Мой идеальный мужчина должен быть родом с сибирских бескрайних просторов крайнего севера. Его Родина: Красноярск, Норильск или Новый Уренгой.

3. У моего идеального мужчины нет автофобии (Автофобия - это типа: "Лисапед - экологичнее, чем машина, поэтому никогда не сяду за руль машины, только лисапед"). У моего идеального мужчины есть машина и хороший стаж вождения.

The funny thing is that regardless of how many lists a women makes, she somehow manages to fall in love with a man who is a complete opposite to at least half of her list's items. Then, when things go wrong, she wonders how in the world she could have loved such a moron. And the cycle goes on, until she realizes that all these lists are complete bullshit :-)

Yes, this is true in a lot of cases! :) I've definitely dated a few morons, but never fallen in love with one. I don't know how some of my male friends date such vapid and dumb women, but they do. And sometimes I must listen to their chatter and brain dead conversations when I join them for group dinners.

All these lists are total bullshit. The first-world birds like Shannon care most about the potential partner "coolness" or, if you wish, "awesomeness". It means a solid set of both physical and mental traits that make an "interesting" person with some unusual experience like painter, traveller, model and stuff. Good looks/style are strongly desired.

Whereas the third-world birds want THE provider and don`t care much about his looks, what he thinks, what he has recently read etc, to summarize. But the Russian whores are beyond the human understanding - they want everything at once as that stupid female user politichanka wrote. But the providers usually don`t have good looks, the painters are not that rich and the models are superficial - so, the Russian whores mostly end up with nothing which leads to mental disorders (so widespread nowadays) based on frustration. Fuck that. I wish I were gay...

Thanks! That was entertaining read. Smart reader won't have to go further than #3 to understand the level of the author and where she's coming from... She won't sleep with man who doesn't own a car! Not too demanding (didn't ask for an apartment) - just practical enough. Because car's a still luxury in the Russia's working class in regions - #3 dead give away of somebody who grew up relatively poor and now want to marry up. Real catch for real man. From Siberia :)))))

Skimmed her blog and that was pretty entertaining too.

классика:

Или сколько стоит женщина. Не 16-летняя девочка, а ухоженная женщина лет 25-30, проживающая в засранном вонючем мегаполисе. Точнее, сколько стоит ее гладкая, щелковистая кожы без прыщей, шероховатостей, пятен и мелких сеточек кожа, густые блестящие волосы, мягкое и бархатное тело, аккуратные ноготочки на руках и ногах, и повседневный «незаметный» макияж. Ниже приведен базовый набор далеко не самых дорогих косметических средств, действительно необходимых для поддержания «товарного» вида внешней оболочки. Не супер-пупер юности, а обычного хрошего состояния. Марки могут быть другими (кому что больше нравится и лучше подходит), цены же приблизительно одинаковы.
Маска увлажняющая 500р:
Сыворотка от всякоразных проблем 3800р:
Защитный дневной крем от грязи, ультрафиолета, выравнивает тон лица 1300р:
Дневной увлажняющий крем, 1500р
Ночной питательный крем 1500р
Увлажняющий крем для кожи век 600р
Питательный крем для кожи век 1000р
Гигиеническая разглаживающая помада для губ 800р
Молочко для снятия макияжа, 400р
Увлажняющее молочко для теля 400р
Шампунь для волос 250р
Кондиционер 300р
Увлажняющий спрей для волос 350р
База под макияж 800р
Каждодневный тональный крем 1300р
Тушь для ресниц 800р
Пудра 1500р
Компактная пудра для ношения с собой 1700р
Блеск для губ 800р
Румяна 900р
Итого: скромнейшая потребительская корзинка, которой частично хватит на 2 месяца стоит 20 500 деревяных рублей, точнее что-то вроде 780 долларов (около 400 долларов в месяц). Прибавим сюда 2400 на маникюр (раз в неделю по 600р) и 2400 на педикюр (раз в две недели по 1200р) — 4800, или что-то около 200 долларов в месяц. Мы не считаем одежду, походы на фитнес, белье, чулки-носки, обувь-сумочки-уркашения, походы к косметологу и к парикмахеру мы тоже не берем в рассчет. Итак: для того, чтобы просто прилично выглядеть лицом, руками и волосами, без особых изысков, женщине нужно минимум 600 долларов в месяц. (женщине — это МНЕ, я ТАК привыкла, мылом хозяйственным не хочу) Это — прожиточный минимум, состоящий из продукции средней ценовой категории, а вовсе не класса люкс (мазать всякое говно на лицо — себе же дороже потом лечить).
По хорошему, в косметичке еще должен иметься ворох разнообразных теней, карандашей для глаз и для губ, помад, румян, тональных кремов, масок и прочих средств. Поддержание не приемлегого, но вполне приличного (см. жены и любовницы приличных мужчин), выхоленого внешнего вида (косметика, фитнес, парикмахер и так далее) обходится москвичке в 2000 долларов в месяц, по самому низкому прайс-листу приемлемых марок и услуг (косметолог, стилист, массаж, эпиляция, фитнес, шпильки-булавки) — не включая одежду, белье, обувь-сумки.
И мое глубочайшее убеждение таково: если к тридцати годам мужчина не может обеспечить своей жене/любовнице/сожительнице/подруге дней суровых эти самые две тыщи (ну илихотя бы полторы) в месяц на дамские расходы — то это некачественный мужчина, которого абсолютно не волнует благополучие жены/любовницы/сожительницы/подруги суровых дней. И тратить свое время, внимание, заботу, любовь и прочие нежные чувства на такого мужчину — просто не стоит. Если хочется, его можно ебать или держать в качестве друга-товарища для самовыпаса. Но тратить на него душевные ресурсы — не целесообразно. Раз его не волнует благополучие жены/любовницы/сожительницы/подруги суровых дней, то не исключено, что через энное количество лет он убежит греть тело к новой жене/любовнице/сожительнице/подруге суровых дней — но ваш внешний вид будет столь тосклив, что шансы обрести взамен улетевшего мужчины новую любовь будут мизерабельны. Так и запишите туда, где у вас всё записывается.
Вот такие дела.
упд раз вы все никак не можете успокоиться:
1. это ОЧЕНЬ скромный набор по сравнению с наборами моих подруг
2. нет ничего смертельного в том, что кто-то тратит на себя много, а кто-то обходится одним кремом — и это не повод метать говно
3. нет ничего станного в том, чтобы мужчина содержал свою женщину — так было много тысяч лет, и если вас душит жаба или не получается заработать достаточно денег — это тоже не повод метать говно
4. то то указанные 600 баксов у меня уходят на всякоразные притирки — правда (кто-то тратит на бухло, кто-то на притирки — каждому свое хобби)

I love this film Up in the Air! :) What woman doesn't like George Clooney? He's handsome, smart, humorous, and married to a very powerful and brilliant woman. She's one of the best human rights lawyers in the world. It says a lot about his character that he would pick a female like this. It means he's a strong man himself, not intimidated by successful women. :)

Haha, for most men it's true.

But for me the list was longer because I also thought how chidren would look like.

I wanted a European-looking girl, blue eyes preferred, tall enough to compensate my stature in children, with big enough boobs and butt (because skinny girls do not cause so much sexual arousal).

So ... that's it :)

This is a very risky strategy, to pick a wife based on predictions of what your children will look like. :)) Did the plan work? I don't really resemble either of my parents. I have blue eyes, and full lips. Everyone else in my family has very small mouths/thin lips, and no one has blue eyes. But I definitely inherited by dad's afro and unruly curly hair. :))

Please don't forget, that Ideal Men can persist only near Ideal Woman.
Nowadays, we have many emancipated and independent femmes. But not so many women...
You always want to have strong men. But please answer to very simple question - what can you give to the Strong Men? He doesn't need in your independency at all. He, probably need in someone, who can take care of him and love him. If you have some requirements, do you ready to to sacrifice something instead of this? The part of freedom for example?

P.S. Sorry for my English. I am just typical Russian sexist.

Feb. 2nd, 2016 10:12 pm (UTC)
Why do you think an independent woman can't also take care of a man? And what do you mean by "take care of?" I offer a man what I also expect to get from him in return--emotional support, companionship, physical intimacy/pleasure, and hopefully a lot of adventures and laughter along the way.

I'm expecting only two qualities in my man too: he loves me and he is independent (yes, it's tricky because if he has this quality then he is automatically: doesn't live in his mom's basement, has a job and some passion in life, so he is not boring!) All the rest doesn't matter much.
peacetraveler22
Feb. 3rd, 2016 12:37 am (UTC)
Agree! A man should have a passion in life and his own hobbies, other than me of course. :) They don't even have to be the same as mine, although a shared love for travel is pretty important for me.

Adventures does not just mean trips or travel. It means a certain spirit, which is willing to think outside the box and not get stuck in a routine, boring life. Try new things. This is very important to me. I also really like five o' clock shadow, goatees and beards on men, but they irritate my skin.
