you need to find your 'match', i'm sure there's someone out there.

however, from reading your post it doesn't sound like you're ready to settle down yet. enjoy your youth and freedom.

there's plenty of time to get married down the road when the right person comes along.

3. Bisexual on the heterosexual side, she only loves you. Magically gets along with every woman you like. Totally open to bring other women into your life - as many as you want and she will support them all.
4. Loves kids as long as they are yours

Did I miss anything?
Dream on sunshine!

You'll marry if you meet your counterpart. It doesn't seem as though it would be all that difficult because many men also never want to be fathers, and would enjoy traveling.
I really hope so. This would be my dream come true. I think I'll probably end up crying out of joy the day I get proposed to.
In the meantime, I have to focus on finishing my major.

- she's childless, and prefers dogs/cats to kids
- she's got a great sense of humor, even a slightly off-color one, or if not, laughs at a dirty joke
- she's willing to go to work
You rang?

Oh.

Sorry, but I'm already taken.

Yes, but some "fools" knock out grand slams when they try!

Hubby and I are case in points. We got married on our first official date, and that was almost 14yrs ago.

Things I do/don't do and qualities I might have or don't have
1) I don't really have too many characteristics of a house-wife (I'm useless when it comes to recipes or decorating/organizing the house but might hire a maid in the future, plus I can't use detergent nor do any heavy cleaning due to my allergies)
2) Have no interest in ever having kids and will be turning 25 next month.. it's ok for me as I'm slowly waiting for all the eggs to die
3) I'm focusing on finishing Turism & Travel management major (I'm paying for my courses)
4) I have plans on traveling to historical places, not staying home all day
5) But even though I'm different and like stated will never bear a child, I want to get married one day (I just want a husband, not add someone else in the picture)
6) I hardly ever dye my nails nor put make-up on (sometimes I wear the same clothes)
7) I'm sort of a bookish person and sometimes lack a sense of humor
8) Regarding my past: only an ex and that's about it but I think it's because I need to go out often

Or will many men still look for the woman with some household characteristics as well as one with nurturing urges towards kids?

Thing is I'm very different and it's probably gonna take me a while to find him. It's like they still want a woman that's kinda traditional in some roles. I don't fit them. I think that's why my ex bf never saw me as potential wife and so strung me along.

People in my family are getting married one by one and sometimes it makes me kinda upset that I still haven't found him.... the one that will accept me like this.
Men looking for a wife, are particularly interested in the nurturing aspect of having a wife. I don't see anything that indicates a willingness to be nurturing. But you sound as if you would make an interesting mate for a guy that doesn't need that and doesn't want children. You sound more or less like a female counterpart to a confirmed bachelor, to be honest, though.

the term wife material usually applies to socially acceptable to be your spouse and mother to your children. gets into values, customs, intelligence, manners, beliefs, stuff like that

A woman is wife material to me so as long as she carries her V card.
