What does a women look for in a potential partner? – A Modern Military Mother

Dear Dr Date

I used to think I knew what it was that women wanted in a partner, but I seem to have lost touch a little over the couple of years I have been single.

What qualities does a lady look for in a man? It will help me with my Online Dating Agency application.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Singleton

Now there’s a question – what does a woman look for in a man?

In my dream life, there are two things that I would like:

1.) A dog that doesn’t poop
2.) A man that looks after himself

To be honest, I think neither of them exist. Is there such a thing as the perfect man? What’s perfect? It would be nice if there were men out there that didn’t judge a book by it’s cover. It would be nice if a man actually respected the contribution that women make and didn’t take a woman for granted. It would be nice if men didn’t think that women were simply put on this planet to serve their needs. Opening doors for people, being polite – this is just basic manners, which show a respect for people, not just women. At the end of the day manners don’t cost anything.

What do you think? What do you think the modern single woman looks for in a partner? You tell me. I have no idea.


  1. I thought, post divorce, I had met the perfect partner but over the last 6m the cracks started to show & we are no more. So much for shared values cos when you are taken for granted they Funny that.

    1. Being taken for granted is very disappointing. To be appreciated is a gift. I am sorry to hear about your two male disasters but it sounds like you are well rid. Men are very annoying and promise a lot but often deliver very little of any substance.

  2. I did srike the motherload because my husband takes care of himself and always puts the seat down after he pees. The downside is he does watch a lot of football but that’s pretty harmless. I am not sure what I would do if I were back on the dating scene. I think it’s a jungle out there full of men who pee on the floor when they pee!
