Because I'm worth a lot

In a brief conversation, a man asked a woman he was pursuing the question " What kind of man are you looking for?"

She sat quietly for a moment before looking him in the eye and asking, "Do you really want to know?"

Reluctantly, he said "Yes."

She began to expound... "As a woman in this day and age, I am in a position to ask a man what he can do for me that I can't do for myself. I pay my own bills. I take care of my household without the help of any man...or woman for that matter. I am in the position to ask, "What can you bring to the table?"

The man looked at her. Clearly he thought that she was referring to money.

She 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 her to explain.

She said "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 to be unequally yoked... believers mixed with unbelievers is a recipe for disaster. 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, but strong enough to keep me grounded. I am looking for someone who I can respect. In order to be submissive, I must respect him. I cannot be submissive to a man who isn't taking care of his business. I have no problem being submissive...he just 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."

When she finished her spiel, she looked at him. He sat there with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "You are asking a lot."

She replied, "I'm worth a lot".

I LOVE IT! i'm printing and memorizing it.

cosimfree911 said...

well that sound good but is it real or can you find some one with all this maybe some or most of it will be fine and belive me evry women worth it and they must know that if they dont think so then they worth nothinnnnn that the worst thing can happen to any one

shady q80 said...

I find that what you are worth changes drastically as you age.

Sexist? Yeah, maybe. I find that some women stick to the assholes they're with cause they're worried that no one else might want them...

cheers.

Purgatory said...

Sarah, yes am a LEO

Papillona ® said...

Devilish maybe not ;)

m :)

e3younalbak, cool! but I wish I coulld know what your nick name means

cosimfree911, one should be positive in order to understand the "I worth a lot"

shady q80, isn't that called love?

Purg, I can see that

E3younAlbak said...

:) Sarah, when i was really young, like 11ish, my first ever Screen Name was E3younalbak21, because the my first love was #21 on his football team, he used to say 'ah ya e3youni' and i called him albi, so hence E3younAlbak - without the 21... because i always loved the name, he's married now and not playing football anymore... bas ma3alaina hahaha i couldn't think of a cool screen name and that one popped into my head so that's the story babe :)

E3younAlbak said...

oh and sarah, to butt in and answer what you asked shadyq80, that's not love, that's blinded one sided love, which only leads to hurt and heartache..

Spontaneousnessity said...

3afya :~) very proud of you, I always say think highly of yourself, you girls are smart, beautiful and succesful you're worth the bestest, good luck inshalla to all

Blossom said...

I think this post should be posted to every person male or female.



Very good one Sarah :)

samboose said...

Sarah thanks for the welcome!

Cosimfree911, it's not a question of being real or not. But i've found that if you believe in it you'll get what you're looking for. One thing though is you need to be equally considerate, thoughtful.....etc. You can't expect to get everything without giving in return.

Blossom said...

OMT, women are givers by nature ! I think it is time for men to learn to be givers too !

Papillona ® said...

e3younalbak, awwww soo cute!
I tried to read it this way:
E three you n albak (you & your heart) no sense I know!

and yes your answer is right, but LOVE IS BLIND!! and when a woman "stick to the assholes" it is not because she's worried that no one else want her, it's because she choose to be with an asshole, her choice and i'm sure she has her reasons, Love could be the answer.

E3younAlbak said...

hahahah you're so cute... over analyzing it :) yea i feel you

Papillona ® said...

sponta :* thank you

samboose you're always welcome

blossom, they can be givers too ;)

shadyq80,
if a woman chooses to be with an asshole, let it be, it could be a challenge to bring out the good man whithin. and it could be Love what makes her stick to one man even if he wasn't that good

E3younAlbak said...

hahahahaha i caught your mistake... ok its definatly time for bed

Papillona ® said...

e3younalbak, that's why I always say women are different, when blossom said "women are givers" I thought NO! what if I want to only recieve? lol

Spontaneousnessity said...

to only recieve!? lol tawni mad7etech!

Papillona ® said...

sponta! it was only a thought :p

E3younAlbak said...

hahahahahaha

samboose said...

hmmmmm Women are natural givers I think is a stereotype just as much as Men are insensative. Both are posibilities but not a general rule.

As for sticking to the asshole, well each woman's reasoning is unique to her own experiences. She's got low self-esteem and thinks that's what she deserves, or she's always been in those types of relationships that she thinks that's the norm you can go as far as that's the love she enjoys and feels any man that's nice is a sissy....who know why, it just is.

Spontaneousnessity said...

it's so true, and it's so sad, we have to face the fact that not all women know how valuable they are to theirselves, and it's the first step into not settling for less than she deserves, but she'll have to realize that on her own, it's what I call a poor unfortunate soul

Papillona ® said...

samboose, I totally agree

Great blog girls -i get the urge to say guys sometimes-

bs.. i wanna tel u not to be very pro-women.. but then again, u shud. its a women's blog. where else wud u find supportive posts.

the reason im saying this.. cz the post sounded like the guy is so dumb.. and narrow-minded.

i'm not 100% sure that i'm looking for a guy who's mentally challanged.. thu, every guy i've fall in love does posess that.. but to marry him?? madre.. that kind of hurts :D

Kay said...

wow! that taking the thoughts right out of my head and putting the words into them..! i'm so printing this out and tapping it to my mirror so i can read everyday.

samboose said...

Vintage.... you can always fall in love with the wrong kind of guy, women do it all the time. it's being strong enough to get yourself out of before you're in to deep is what counts. Your girlfriends' support is usually the best medicine.

Oh and I have a confession, I'm married. Going on 4 years almost. So when i speak it's really out of experience. Don't settle for anything less. Be concious of how you fall in love with.

Mr. Nice Guy is what lasts! The most important thing is to always be who you are.

Flamingoliya said...

Samboose, I like what you said. We need a whole post about this. Care to share?

samboose said...

Flamingoliya sure! i'm very open about these things because it makes me so sad to see many girls getting married for the sake of "just getting married".

It took Mr. Asshole to say one sentance that made me say "F*** You! you're outta here"

It took Mr. Nice Guy persistance for me to actually let my gaurd down because I had the mentality of "all men are assholes and are not worthy of me"

Wana do a whole post? I can write up a storm here! To all single women heed my advice!

Papillona ® said...

vintage, thank you dear :)
I don't think that the guy looked so dimb, the woman is smart, that's all ;)

wicked nice! :)

sam. I love your comments. keep them up ;)

samboose said...

Sarah, Thanks!!! Love your compliments...he he he!

Flamingoliya said...

yalla write that storm!
