as mentioned in past posts we all have different values in relationships & its important to identify our highest value & ensure that our close personal relationships can provide us with what we need. For me I think the major value in a relationship is friendship. I’m a boomer & loved being part of a group of friends at high school & remember my mother who it could be said never had a close friend whilst I was growing up, said to me ‘You love your friends more than you love your family!’ It may have been true and friends & my community of friends (although spread across the world now, having lived on a few continents) are still extremely important to me.

this week I would like to focus on what men want from online dating? Obviously I do not know the answer to this first hand, being a woman, so need to rely on others to obtain this information. I read a great article on Live Science: ‘What Modern Men Want in Women’ by Sally Law which gave results of a current study:
Researchers at the University of Iowa find that men increasingly are interested in intelligent, educated women who are financially stable — and chastity isn’t an issue.
asking the big question today, if you are a woman: what do you want from online dating? The gender divide brings a complexity to real life dating & even more so to online dating.
‘The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is “What does a woman want?”‘ Sigmund Freud
