One thing I have long admired about (smart) men is that when they decide to commit to a woman, they usually know for sure the value she brings to his life. They take calculated risks when it comes to determining whether a woman is an asset or a liability.
It may not sound all romantic and whimsical, but in reality it is. Once a man sees that his woman is an asset, his connection with her becomes deeper. I think women struggle with this concept sometimes. A lot of us determine asset/liability with different criteria then men do. It leads to us taking bigger risks then we probably should.
I am generalizing, of course, but I believe that women and men can both learn alot from each other when it comes to determining asset or liability of potential partners. For example, some women view a previous marriage as a liability, for whatever reason. If someone has been married before, they are probably more likely to realistic expectations about marriage. This could actually be helpful when they marry again.
Men, what do you consider an asset? Do you think you have taken more caution as you get older when it comes to taking a risk on someone?
Ladies, do you think women need to work harder to determine asset and liability of potential partners? Do you think our emotions get in the way or are they helpful? What type of things do you consider as assets?
Do you think you would be an asset or a liability in a new relationship?
