Do Women Expect Too Much Of Men?

Or are adjectives standing in the way of love?

She just joined Match.com, saying she’s lost 20 lbs already (which could be Nick Cannon).

Donna says it actually makes her horny. Women’s horniness doesn’t fall out of a jar.

Men who are doting, caring, considerate and chivalrous could find themselves in the “friend zone” as opposed to the bedroom.

Yet, looking at dating profiles today, the adjectives still roll out of women’s profiles, with the added codicil:“I won’t settle, I made that mistake before!”

Could adjectives be going the same way? Or should we be tempering our expectations possibly down to “honest” and “caring”?

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
