    No, it can't be answered as asked. Just asking the question indicates that someone is living in the wrong century. The best answer to the question "What do women want from their man?" is "The same thing men from from their woman, Gay men want from their man and Lesbians want from their woman."

    Despite what lame stand-up comedians want you to believe, women don't have a shopping gene, they don't hate Science Fiction and comic books, they don't all want babies and they don't trade sex for intimacy. There is no "they." There are three-and-a-half billion individuals who happen to be women.

    I will second (actually third) Rhubarb's list and I will add a good sense of humour. Laughter is an incredibly attractive quality!

    And Shazam!, I make my own money, so that has never been a factor for me!

    Are you saying it would be if you didn't?

    Probably not. If I didn't make my own money I wouldn't have been able to move out on my own. If I hadn't moved out I would not have left the very small town I grew up in. If I hadn't left that town I believe I would have stayed single (my choices there would have been very, very limited...and I always knew it was up to me to build the future for myself that I wanted).

    So, I'm going to change that "probably not" into a firm "no"!

    One that cooks well (within Kosher guidelines), financially responsible and a good lover. That's pretty much it.

    The thing with words like "honesty" is they have nothing to do with personality. Everyone wants honesty in a parent, a friend, a sibling and if it's not there it erodes even relationships you are theoretically stuck with for life.

    I have no idea what my partner wants from her man, but apparently I have that. In plenty.

    So, yay. :D

    At this point I'd settle for an ETA. ;)

    At this point in my own immaturity, I'm really only interested in large breasts.

    This woman wants Rhubarb's list, plus kindness and a sense of humor. Oh yeah, cleanliness / good hygiene, too.

    Which, I feel reasonably confident, is not what most women want in a man. But I'm sure there are a few ladies out there with a moob fetish. Rule 34, and all that.

    Breasts aren't everything when it comes to the female body, not by a longshot, but I imagine more than a few guys on the Trek BBS would love a shot at the three-breasted chick from the original Total Recall.

    After all, that same actress played Ensign Sonya Gomez in two episodes of TNG. That's two different reasons and a total of five breasts.

    I imagine their species must give birth in multiples and need those extra milk producing glands. Yes that is what they are for :lol:

    That is way too cynical. And more than a bit insulting (to women AND men), IMHO.

    Tsk Tsk Teacake! How dare you shatter some people's illusions (that breasts exist for the purpose of sexual gratification) with the hard truth of lactation! For shame! LOL!

    edit to add: Thank you MLB!

    Mammals are bilaterally symmetrical and the number of mammary glands in a species is twice the average litter. An odd number of breasts would be unlikely.
