We all have certain attributes that we look for in a person that we are interested in.
Some attributes mean more to us than others.
Some people are big on looks. Others are big on personality. Some are big on education...
I recently had conversation with an old college buddy who expressed his frustration with me about his wife's education...or lack thereof. He has been married for a few years and he knew that she only had a high school diploma. He has a college degree. His frustration has come because she has no intentions of pursuing a degree at this point.
"Man, she's different. She's not like the chicks that we went to school with. They have hustle and drive. She doesn't. I thought she did but she doesn't. She just wants to work at this little job and doesn't wanna better herself."
I tried to put a positive spin on it. But he wasn't hearing it. To him, he wanted somebody who is just as focused on their education as he was. She said that she was gonna get her degree after they were married. That was years ago and she has done nothing. In fact, she hasn't worked much during the time that they have been married.
I have a college degree. So does my wife. In fact, she has her masters degree. Could I have dated/married somebody who didn't have a college degree? Of course I could have. It's important but not as important as the other attributes that I would seek in a mate. For me, the one attribute that a woman that I'm interested in MUST have is intelligence. You gotta be smart. I'm smart. I never wanted a dumb chick. I'll take brains over beauty any day.
What about you? What is the ONE attribute that your mate MUST have? And why?
