Let's just cut straight to the chase here, shall we?
What men want, prefer, or desire in a relationship is irrelevant. Men exist for one reason: to serve women. They accomplish this as follows.
-- Take the blame. The man must be the woman's personal scapegoat for anything that goes wrong. And his possible non-involvement in the situation is no excuse. If he were on top of things, he would have gotten involved and prevented the problem from occuring in the first place. Never mind that he was across town at the time.
-- Be the steppinfetchit boy. He must run around finding whatever object the woman has misplaced. If the object is not where she says it is, he should under no circumstances bother her, and should proceed to search every possible other place it might be hiding. Just keep looking, okay?
-- Put gas in the woman's car. She is very busy and gets tired and the smell of gasoline fumes makes her feel icky. The ability to fill up her car is a skill that a woman eventually loses not long after she gets a man.
-- Perform lawn care.
-- Manage the vehicle maintenance.
-- Pick up after the woman. It takes a lot of energy for her to spill stuff on the kitchen counter, drop the hair from her brush onto the bathroom floor, and strew stacks of paper hither and yon. By the end of the day, these activities have left her worn out. Be good, and just clean up.
Any other useful functions that a man may be able to perform can be accomodated through... other means. Hope this helps. Regards.
Wouldn't it be a great thing if all the women who have had experiences with lousy, inattentive, unloving men could find all the men who have had experiences with selfish, inattentive, boring women? There has to be a reason so many people are with the wrong people. Personally, I gave up, so I can afford to sit back and watch
