That was my first answer, but I did not want anyone to know I was that easily pleased.....

A sense of humor, intelligent.....I don't feel intimidated by accomplished women.

I don't want anyone (male or female) who uses the word "multi-task". To me that translates in to poor time management or doing several things with mediocrity instead of one thing well.

Physically....not going to open that can of worms. Wouldn't be prudent at this juncture.

I'm surprised the women aren't speaking up more here. Even if it is just to trash some of the posts (you know who you are).

I'm with Nickelback

I want a brand new house
on an episode of Cribs
And a bathroom I can play baseball in
And a king size tub big enough
for ten plus me

I'll need a, a credit card that's got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Gonna join the mile high club
At thirty-seven thousand feet

I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between cher and
James Dean is fine for me


Seriously - In my opinion almost all men are little boys at heart.

We want the best toys that don't break
We want to be praised all the time
We want to be forgiven when we screw up
We want to be admired when we try
We want to be comforted when we are sick
We don't want to be nagged when we make mistakes
Check that last one - We don't want anyone acknowledging that we are capable of making mistakes.

And trust me - Sometimes we really are thinking about nothing...

A beam reach in 15 knots on a sunny day and someone to share that with who understands why that's so special.

Perhaps like me, the other women just give a wry smile and move on

gender equity

We no longer subscribe to the archaic roles of "captain" and "first mate" on our boat. Rather, we've evolve two acronyms that fit our modern roles: TOWBT, and TOWFT. These stand for "The One Who Breaks Things," and "The One Who Fixes Things."

What do I want on a boat? Just once before I die and go to cruisers' heaven I'd like TOWBT to read an owner's manual.
