Nine Steps to Finding a Boyfriend

How to Find a Guy in 9 Steps

Matchmaker Samantha Daniels doesn't star in her own reality show, but she does have a formula that will allegedly help single women find boyfriends. She's identified nine types of women men fall in love with. Here's the list, which reads a little bit like tips for landing a job:

Men fall in love with . . .

  1. Women who seem special and different. She says: "Make sure to differentiate yourself."
  2. Women whom they are afraid to lose.
  3. Women who respect themselves and demand respect from a man.
  4. Women who are happy with themselves.
  5. Women who pick "the right time" to have sex. How do you know? "He will not be looking to 'lay' you; he will be looking to make love to you."
  6. Women whom they will be proud to introduce to their friends and family. The don'ts: causing a scene or drinking too much.
  7. Women who don't make his life harder.
  8. Women who are helpful and help them take care of things.
  9. Women who continually keep it interesting.

I see truth in this list — like you need to love yourself before someone can love you — and I think the ideas could apply to both men and women. But I'm not sure following it will guarantee love, since I'd like to believe it's something unquantifiable. What do you think?

I really hate this type of lists! I find them highly sexist. What they want is a robot not a woman.

7. Women who don't make his life harder. There's something to this, for any gender or sexual orientation looking for love with any other gender or sexual orientation! A man who plays computer games all day while I clean his house and run the errands and take care of the kid is not going to get any admiration, affection, or sex. A man who brings me coffee or clears off my car when it snows, though? I fall HARD for that kind of stuff.

That was a lousy movie that I got dragged to via a date... although I'm biased against Matthew McConaughey because he's such a terrible actor. Yeah yeah, women desire him and he's in much better shape than me, but so what. He's still a terrible actor that makes terrible movies (Dazed & Confused does not count!). I married my wife for a variety of reasons, but one that sticks out in my mind is that we are a very good team together.

So they like women who they see as exceptional, who help them do thongs THEIR way and who play hard to get. How very 1950's :rotfl: thanks for the tips.
