Meeting guys who are worthwhile?

My friend says the guy I want does not exist. I want a guy who can support me and whom I can support. A guy with goals and honor. Too much to ask for?

  • Not asking too much, you just can't settle for less!

  • No!! Your friend is nuts!
    I have 2 wonderful sons who would make any woman proud to have them in their lives!
    I raised them right, lol

  • Not asking too much - you just have to make sure you keep asking for it. I've set very high standards for any guy I might date at this point. I know some people think my standards are too high, and even some guys have told me that. But I figure I see guys who could meet those standards married to my friends, my cousins, my dad is even one of them. So I know they exist. I just have to be patient and wait for an unattached one to come along. Don't settle.

  • Now granted, I'm a tad bitter, but yes it sure seems like it. I want a "non-exister" too, or at least I've been told.

  • They exist, although most of them have been scooped up already. They're rare, but not a myth!

  • No. That's not at all too much to ask for. I married a terrific man who is very supportive of me and my son. He has a professional job, is a leader in our Church and a great leader in our county/community...There are still some wonderful men out there and there is one for you. You just wait and see.
    A good tip: (Not to sound rude, just fact) If you want the best...look at the best places...

  • You can find that man, you just need to remember that those are the most important qualities and not limit yourself by piling on a bunch of less important qualifications on top of those. There are a lot of guys out there, all you have to do is find your favorite one. :D

  • No, you're not asking too much. I married my husband 5 years ago. He is an incredible father to my oldest 3 from my first marriage and we have 2 together. He has a great stable job and is very laid back. I am constantly amazed he wasn't already married!
    To be sure, if you expect less that's what you will get.
