Did you miss this part of my post?

"And heck, I am not saying us average to attractive looking young ladies all deserve a Brad Pitt -- but just know that you can do pretty freaking good in today's dating market"

Basically my point is: young ladies, if you have a certain set of standards/requirements, go for the men that meet them. Don't settle for some guy who doesn't meet them. And no, I'm not referring just to LTR's... mostly casual dating, or something that could possibly turn into an LTR (you never know) Now, don't have a laundry list... unless if you are like a close to perfect girl (9+/10), you miiight find your man even with a laundry list, depending on how ridiculous it is.

This is a picture of my little sister and I (I'm on the right -- obviously I blurred out both of our faces)

here's my requirements:
-Don't be socially awkward, be able to carry a conversation
-Have a good social circle with friends who aren't tools
-Dress nice, smell nice
-Be interesting, have some neat hobbies/interests beyond just sports
-Treat me nicely -- and I don't mean shower me with gifts or pay for everything (I'm not a slouch - I am an RN and make good enough money to support myself)
-Preferably 6'+... and not balding (I know- I sound kind of superficial with this one, but really all my other requirements aren't too difficult)
-Good career/goal oriented
-Not too scrawny or pale

I had no problem finding men to date that met these requirements... and it's really not asking too much I don't think.

Knew I'd get slack for this. My dad is a member and he reads these message boards a lot, and I recently started lurking a lot... when I get bored I love checking over certain sections because I've actually learned a lot of things from reading them. Lots of great discussion.

*shrug* I don't care what women's "requirements" are, but I think people who create lists are missing out on a lot of really good people, and it's there fault.

I'm guessing you're in your early 20s? Yeah..live it up while you can. You're obviously above average in attractiveness and quite smug about it. Try living as a below average woman and see how many guys are hitting on you even in a club atmosphere. You can go months or even years without a date and definitely won't have guys lined up around the block to be with you...have fun in your bubble.

I'm 26, and I'm sorry-- I don't mean to come across as smug. Look at it this way: it is WAY harder for a below average man than it is for a below average woman.

The world according to an engaged 20-something.

Does it sound impossibly jaded if I say "check back in in a decade or so"?

This whole thread is pretty much why I wish I was in my 30s already.

Women who are engaged and marry in there early-mid 20s are are a lot like the OP, from what I've found.
