Everything Old Is New Again

The results of the Great Male Survey 2009 from Askmen.com are in. I eagerly anticipate this each year (no sarcasm, really) because it’s like getting a small peek into a cross-section of men that are in my dating pool. From what I can tell, modern men are still big on tradition: “When it comes to the romantic front, everything old is new again”  I feel that this is a great thing to hear, for the most part.  That doesn’t mean I don’t struggle with some of the ideas that come with that though.

The Dating & Sex part of the survey had a lot of great questions. I would be interested to hear some of our male readers to respond to the first five: Do you believe that you have a soul mate? What is the most important personality trait that makes a woman “relationship material”? Is it important for a girlfriend to have “wife potential”? Do you believe in marriage? How important is it to you for your future wife to sign a prenup?

Ladies, the Great Female Survey was given by Yahoo’s female portal, Shine. Same questions for you: Do you believe that you have a soul mate? What is the most important personality trait that makes a man “relationship material”? Is it important for a boyfriend to have “husband potential”? Do you believe in marriage? Do you want your future husband to sign a prenup? Would you sign one?

Some of the numbers surprised me, what do you think about the responses?

Happy Friday everyone!

Cee — Yup, we actually do have a Segway in the office. And Razor scooters. And a ping-pong table & Wii & Skee-Ball. Weird Al could very well have based that song on me… (except, of course, that I’m way cuter) ;-)

Swiss I’m feeling that Wii, all day! The Razor is blah unless it’s a RipStick. That RipStick is kinda cool.

Ping-pong…bong….enjoy that to break up a boring meeting or class for work. Yup, it wins for office fun too.

Even if he wasn’t born in the US, he is still american because his mom is American.

Jus Soli – citizenship through blood (child) is recognized in the US.

Otherwise, military kids born overseas would not be citizens.

LOL…Oh forget you Melo!

Alright, Melo – You’re a man of tradition. No doubt your woman must be as well. But she can’ be too passive. You’re turned on by her defiance, as long as she keeps it under wraps when in the public eye. She’s so much more than a woman wrapped in one. She can be lady-like, as long as she your lady. A freak as long as she’s your freak. A bytch as long as she’s your bytch…you get the gist. But she has to be articulate and able to express herself very well. Outspoken to a point. But as long as you have the final say on important matters of the household and she recogizes when/where this comes into play….well that’s the bottomline.
She may be the QUEEN…but You are the KING.

W8 – Oh, I know…but just in case she had to go back on her grind, she’d probably have to be just as competitive in the workplace as she would be in the home.
