Men Are from Mars, Liberals Are from Venus
April 28, 2015
When asked what qualities they want in in a wife, American heterosexual men said they value “attractive” and “sweet” women, a national survey recently found. Only 34 percent, however, said they wanted a romantic partner who is “independent.”
But the story changes when respondents considered the qualities they want to see in their daughters. Beauty and a pleasant disposition, for example, mattered much less than strength and intelligence:
The results, gleaned from a survey of 881 men across the country earlier this month, show “an eye-opening disparity between the qualities contemporary men feel are paramount in a wife and/or partner and what they value for their daughters when they grow up,” said The Shriver Report Snapshot: An Insight Into the 21st Century Man, which was published Friday.
News flash: Men want the woman they’ll be in a relationship with to be “attractive”. A man doesn’t need to be attracted to his daughter, or his brother, or his mechanic. That’s what would be “disturbing”.
