I went out with a lady that I met on OKC on Friday night. We had a great conversation.

What got me was, she thinks she's a good catch because she: owns a home, has a job and keeps her hair and nails done.


I find a lot of women think "things" are what entitles them to being a "good catch"


Most guys don't care about that.

We pretty much focus on 2 things: Are you "attractive" to us and are you a "cool person".

Everything else is somewhat minor. As it relates to jobs/title, as long as you can take care of yourself without doing anything illegal, that's all that matters.


Your thoughts?

Depends on the whole package they offer, not just a few things here and there. They could be and couldn't be a good catch, depends on who's looking. Also knowing their bad traits is the key. The good stuff is easy to deal with, the bad stuff could be trouble....

Your thoughts?
(1) Is she at least cute? (2) Does she have a medium build? (3) Does she work full time 40 hours a week? (I don't really care where as long as it isn't the video store) (4) What kind of personality does she have? Is she wound tighter than a kite string and b*tchy or uptight? (5) Does she like men to be men or pretty boy impostors? (6) Is she a felon? If so, no thanks. (7) Does she smoke dope or do drugs? If so, no thanks. (8) Does she have a valid drivers license? If not, get one. (9) Is she anti-gun? If so, get lost ASAP! LMAO (10) Does she like sex? If no, get lost ASAP! LOL (11) Is she the type looking for commitment and long term thing as serious or maybe even marriage? I'm not looking to "have fun" thanks! Those are my basics!

The owning a house thing is pretty silly in and of itself. If the housing bubble taught us anything, it's that many people who shouldn't have become homeowners, did, thanks to excessive/wreckless mortgage lending. It's silly that in 2012, people still think home ownership is some lofty status symbol.

I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad thing, but if a person is poor due to their mortgage payment then they're not a good catch in my book. So, I guess I'd need a little more info.

Financially speaking, my view of a good catch is a girl who's not in debt, doesn't really matter how much she makes, just don't be a financial burden.

You guys all know what I mean. They still have the high school job and don't want to do anything about it. Go to the plywood factory, they will hire you as a office clerk or something better for double what you are making. You graduated high school. Stop messin' around!

You can really only speak to your feelings on the matter and for those you know who feel the same way. You can't speak for most men.

I know men who think this way and I know men who would agree with her. But it's not about "things". It's about having her act together, being financially successful and responsible enough to be able to buy a home, having the credit to do so. On the hair and nails, it would be about taking care of herself, caring about her appearance. Nothing wrong with any of that.

She sounds like a good catch to me as long as she's good looking.. you sound like you're intimidated and are coming up with this thread to somehow make yourself feel better.
