We're all both simultaneously strong and vulnerable at the same time, in different measures. Positive mental attitude makes a big difference, especially to keeping the relationship going over time.
I'm also working on a plan to landscape the yard from local plants which should make the cost to us virtually nothing.
So despite the fact that I am not currently bringing money into my relationship I sure do things that save us loads of money plus that leaves me at home to be at my husband's and the dog's beck and call and since he works from home, he likes that.
A "positive mental attitude" simply means not being negative ... seeing the good in things and people and situations ... and what defines "good-looking" is unique to every man.
I personally enjoy a pretty face first and foremost, for example ...
Overweight is an automatic disqualification for attraction. Social skills are their own kind of intelligence (and you can be quite dumb but have great social intelligence and therefor be far more attractive than the brilliant nerd).
If you are smart, single and dating, I’m pretty sure this is the man you want to meet: the confident, interesting guy who knows what he wants and how to get it.
it is a reflection of what all early to mid-forties men want ... 1) Brazilian Wax Job I found it amazing how many of us men find a Brazilian wax job so incredibly important and sexy on a woman. ] The truth is - not all women in their forties are willing to get a Brazilian wax job ... The difference from a man's point-of-view is night and day ... 2) Financial Contributor to the Relationship Being a "financial contributor to the relationship" simply means that you earn an income, and are an economic asset (not a liability) to the male-female partnership. The truth is that we men prefer that a woman is capable of standing on her own financially ... We don't mind being the major breadwinner - but we also don't want to be funding any slackers. 4) Physical Attributes are Definitely a Bonus Not all men are pigs, but most of us are.
[If you don't know what this is - it refers to a completely shaved or waxed vagina ... and that is a shame because in today's world, there is nothing less attractive than a hairy woman. we absolutely favor the completely waxed look down there ... Perhaps this particular attribute is a sign of the times ... 3) Positive Mental Attitude Having a girlfriend with a positive mental attitude is really important to us men. [I am, for example.] We appreciate a good-looking woman ...
Women might not like that, but I've come to accept that this is the truth.
This does NOT mean than you are out of luck after a certain age - personally I've found my own attraction follows my age range (ok, it lags a little - I notice women in their thirties as well as forties).
That's a bit hard to define, but some are more so than others.
