The Art Of Greatness...

I got this Top 10 traits of a great girlfriend off of askmen.com:

How do you know if she really is the right woman for you? If she possesses the following 10 traits, you better hold on to her for dear life or, before you know it, a guy who already knows where it's at will get his hands on your "goods."

10. She's Independent.
Once in a while, like if she's had a rough day at work, it's great to be her shoulder to cry on, but if she can't seem to function without you and is constantly after you, she will eventually make you feel like you're suffocating, which is a surefire way to get you running out the nearest exit. If she has her very own personality and opinions, can stand on her own two feet, both financially and emotionally, and is able to enjoy time away from you -- while still missing you, of course -- then she must be a great girlfriend.
9. She's Intelligent
An intelligent woman will constantly surprise you and keep you on your toes. She won't let you get bored of her. Besides, it's nice to have something to talk about between all that chandelier-hanging sex.

8. She's Sexual
Of course, this doesn't imply that she has to know all the right moves straight away; it simply means that you and she have an undeniable attraction towards each other, and are able to communicate your desires verbally (or with physical cues). It is important that you please each other in the bedroom, or on top of the dryer -- whatever the case may be.

7. She's Beautiful
You have to be proud to have her on your arm and enjoy the sight of her in any light. And this doesn't mean that she has to be a Heidi Klum clone. Remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if you think her full bottom or uncontrollable curls are beautiful, you're allowed.

6. She Respects You
A great girlfriend won't ever cause scenes in public or in front of your friends and family, and will always wait to discuss matters with you in private. If she respects you, chances are that she will behave in a tactful and diplomatic manner in most situations, which is definitely a good thing.

5. She Let's You Be a Man
She has to understand that men and women are different and should allow you to be yourself. Just like you wouldn't deprive her of going shopping with her best girlfriend, she shouldn't expect you to give up the guys for her.

4. She's Nagless
However, if you live together and you stay out all night without calling her, and she lets you have it, then you're setting yourself up for disaster. This is a situation that nobody would let slide -- not even a great girlfriend.

3. She gets along with friends and family
She'll actually empathize with your brother's getting dumped and suggest that you guys take him out to cheer him up. Not only that, but your friends won't roll their eyes and moan when you mention that she'll be joining you guys when she gets off work (yes, women like this do exist).

2. She loves you
Another way to know if she really loves you is by observing the way she looks at you and treats you on an everyday basis. If the sight of you doesn't seem to faze her either way, and she doesn't really seem to care about what you have to say, she's either playing very hard to get, or sees you as just some guy. But if a surprise visit or phone call from you makes her light up, there's no denying that she loves you.

1. She makes you want to be a better man.
Stop making that face... Any man who has a great girlfriend or wife will tell you that she makes him want to be a better man. She doesn't have to say or do anything; it just is that way. If you suddenly feel bad about how you treated your sister or find yourself trying to get your finances in order, you might want to think about your motivation for doing so. It could be love.

In conclusion, I find I'm a pretty good catch. Had I known this sooner, I might have played harder to get or something! Since we are in need of cash, I could possibly pimp myself out. Kinda like in Sweet November, only, I wont be dying. I can have a new man every month, but it'll cost him. No, not prostitution, cus I am not sleazing myself out, pimping....as in, maybe if you are gay and want to convince your parents you aren't. I'm the girl to do it! I've got the top 10 qualities needed!

#8. Attraction. Like if you can't even get inside the door before you are all over each other, and it happens in the car in your very own driveway!

Wow I have some work to do.

Tayray: yea, i had that once. someone who wanted me as much as i wanted them. *sigh* now i have to make the man want me. I sorta miss those days, but I cant say that CP gets offended.

Hey, I have/do all 10 of those, too! How come nobody ever told me I was so desireable? I guess my Dear Hubby was the first one to see it? :)

Celina: I think men try to keep it secret so we don't get full of ourselves. Askmen.com is a pretty interesting site!
