Expectations and Criteria Romance

  • View author's info Posted on Mar 12, 2005 at 10:17 PM


    A little story about expectations and criteria. This is a true story. My friend Andy back in ?90 was pretty content with his life, except for one thing. He wanted to find a good ?ol lady. Andy was a 6?2? ?ol style biker, not that pretty, but he could get women, you know, the skinny, busty, good-looking type; he rode a Harley after all, lol. Just couldn?t find his true love. Well, one day a friend's gf hooked him up with her friend. Next day I asked him how it went. He said, oh, she was nice but weighed like about 300 lbs. She was big --lovely and big. I said keep an open mind. He said maybe he should lower his expectations and change his criteria. Turned out they saw each other again and again. There was something about Maggie that just made him feel really good when he was with her. On her part, well, she?d never dated or even been around a guy like Andy. She had a college degree and was an executive with a large company. Never had been around bikers before. Andy was a hard-working, good man but not what she was used to, no college degree, no business suits. Seems she decided maybe she needed to lower her expectations and change her criteria. As it turned out they slowly fell deeply in love, got married and are still together. They became each other?s best friend and devoted spouse. Seems when they both ?lowered? their expectations and changed their criteris, they each found a great love. Or maybe they just opened their minds and hearts? Wonder how many people have passed by a great love because of expectations and criteria.:)

    Yeah Eye, that inner beauty thing was just smooth talk in fine art form...too bad I've got brains and boobs and he has one less one night. Thanks for the assist and backup on naming him a stank pole cat, I like that! I changed his name to that in my cell so if he calls I can send to VM

    Upstate I dont see any extra pounds. To say what he did is a cop out for sure. He must not be man enough to look a woman in the eye and tell her. There is better guys out there and you will find one Im sure of that. Smiles to you

    Squirrelette:

    I've been told that a certain type of bodily secretion, when applied directly from the source, will go a long way towards clearing up a rash like mine. Hurry though, it's spreading.

    Eye wrot:

    "Thanks, but I'm not going to limit myself by expecting that they be able to move. Besides, a set of jumper cables hooked up to the coil output will take care of that."
    You know, this gives credence to the saying that all a woman has to do is show up and the guy's ready. Heck, I'm startin' to think a woman doesn't need to show up at all. LOL

    Happykitty and all others, just wanted to update you all..I had ANOTHER date. WOW, TWO IN ONE YEAR! That is a RECORD, but Happykitty more to what you were saying, this would not have been someone that I probably would have chosen to go out with based on "looks", but I set that aside and got to know the personality a little better first, and the person is very warm, affectionate, sensitive, etc., and once I got to know his personality a little better, his "looks" became more attractive. Now whether or not anything more will come of it, hard to tell. But I had a great time, made a new friend.

    I'm sorry, I thought most guys didn't really require brain waves, based on the eye candy they chose to date instead of bright, intelligent women...oh wait did I say that or did I think that??
