Through the Looking Glass
Travel back through the mist of time to when you were dating. In that mirror, how had you seen yourself as qualified for a mate?
From the typical male point of view, the guy wants the most beautiful and loving woman that God had ever created. Any number of attributes can be added.
The average gal wants a man who will love her with abandon.
