Standards do benefit society. I don't think society would exist without standards.

Would you date a woman, who's not very pretty, but she's got a job, she's made up of fat, muscle, skin, and bone. Oh, she was born a male, but had an operation. But, still, all the organic materials are there.

No standards? Really?

Good post.

Having standards, you wouldn't know.

Come back to me when you relax your standards, and find out how much less stressful your life is.

And who just repped me saying "A woman's place is the home, my place is the workplace?"

Well, if that's the case, then thank you, TKramer. But you seem to be at odds with yourself regarding standards. You won't date a woman who works outside the home? Smells like a "standard" to me.

If this is true, we're getting a little closer to where your insecurities lie: POWER.

Your post doesn't make sense. I have my standards. I have a husband that meets my standards. Why lower my standards to do what, exactly? I don't get it.

Actually standards have benefitted society greatly. If you believe in Evolution, than you know that standards exist, so that the strongest reproduce.

You can't build a bridge out of crap. You need to meet certain standards for material and structural strength. I wonder if that will make more sense to you.

A woman who works outside the home wouldn't approach me for a date, would she?

It's not MY standard--I never chase.

Yea, it has to be no work at all. Any type of employment would result in trumping.
