Clearly he thought that I was referring to money.
I quickly corrected his thought and stated,
“I am not referring to money. I need something more. I need a man who is striving for perfection in every aspect of life.”
He sat back in his chair, folded his arms, and asked me to explain.
“I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection mentally because I need conversation and mental stimulation. I don’t need a simple minded man.
I am looking for someone who is striving for perfection spiritually because I don’t need someone unequally yoked….believers mixed with non-believers is a recipe for disaster. And even if he is a believer, he needs to believe as I do.
I need a man who is striving for perfection financially because I don’t need a financial burden.
I am looking for someone who is sensitive enough to understand what I go through as a woman, and strong enough to keep me grounded when I do go through changes. I don’t need a man who is going to purposely bring me grief.
I am looking for someone who I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him and he must respect me.
I cannot be submissive to a man who isn’t taking care of his business or who is “messy” in his personal affairs. I have no problem being submissive..but he has to be worthy.
God made woman to be a help mate for man. I can’t help a man if he can’t help himself.
If he can’t help himself then he definitely can’t help me.”
When I finished my spiel, I looked at him.
He sat there with a puzzled look on his face.
He said, “You are asking for a lot”.
I replied, “I’M WORTH A LOT.”
