    A bass boat, power tools and a pickup truck. Not necessarily in that order.

    My answer will be serious - be in the will of God. Simply put, if you are in the will of God, He will help you to cross paths with the man who is going to be for you.

    Padre do you really want a woman going fishing with you, taking your power tools out of the garage, or driving your truck?


    It would be better if the woman was simply rich so you could buy a new boat, a bigger more powerful saw, and a new truck.


    Ducking and running for cover now.

    Bingo! That's why I voted "be wiser than a serpent." It takes a lot of prayer and wisdom.

    If a man is looking for the things on the list, look for another man.

    Careful, Saggy! It's a bit like getting a puppy--they're cute til you get them home and you find out they're not housebroken!









    Running very fast now.....

    That works the other way too, btw. :tongue3:

    On another note, I always knew I married Miss Right.

    I just didn't know her middle name was Always. :wavey:

    What I like in a woman:

    - true Christian commitment and discipleship (not some breathy, fuzzy religiousity)
    - brains (I like women who challenge me to think)
    - respect for herself and others
    - comfortable with herself (not complaining about her appearance or body)
    - sense of humor
    - a rich inner life (pursuit and involvement in the arts)
    - the ability to love others

    Ultimately, it doesn't really matter what she looks like on the outside, these characteristics are very attractive and are or much more valuable that most of the other things on the list.

    My wife is not a great cook and, frankly, is kind of messy. Fortunately, I'm a good cook and can take the lead in keeping our house clean. Although I probably do more than half the housework, she contributes significantly.

    I have always been intrigued by the phrase, "Be yourself." It's not surprising that it is the 'leader' so far in the poll, but what's the deal about that little bit of advice? If you have a hangup, should you let it be known right away? If you typically use very informal-- bad, per se-- grammar, should you go to an important meeting talking the same way? If you once tried LSD and might have a spontaneous new 'trip' at some time, should that be one of the first things you tell a new acquaintence?

    But on the practical level of making an impression on someone-- that is, if you're not making an impression on the person (for whatever reason) you wish to be with-- you are already "being yourself" and it's not 'working.' So what is the deal about this 2-word proverb?

    If it's "not working" than it must be the wrong person.

    Being yourself does not mean revealing every detail about your whole life. It just means don't be fake.
    You probably aren't dating at the important meeting, which is basically what this topic is about.

    Be yourself. You don't want to pretend the rest of your life.

    Be in the center of God's will and He will send you a mate (if it is His will that you marry).

    Remember, you have to keep them the same way you got them.

    It's much better to want someone you don't have than to have someone you don't want.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The difference between a man and a puppy is that a puppy will eventually stop whining. (Ducking now.) :)
