Having a debate about “types” and what women look for in a man and dude brings up the “women marry their fathers” Oedipal/Freudian thing…
(Don’t know what I’m talking about? Wiki it, I don’t have enough blog space to get into it)
So of course, when this comes up, I throw out my wild card: “what about women who didn’t grow up with a fathers?”
(Yes, I would be one of those women…)
Granted, I know that my father figures (my uncle and two much older cousins) have influenced my idea of what an ideal man for me is, but I’ve never been involved with a man who was equal parts goofy nerd and lovable asshole; a spotlight stealer working behind the scenes using his savant like intelligence to create his world (oh and who can cook…). It’s generally been one or two of these things and, yes, if I found a man who was all of this in one package, I’d get down on one knee.
(I said one knee you dirty birds)
So ladies, I ask you: for a man of significance (relationship material) do you think you consciously look for the qualities that remind you of your father (figure)?
Speak on it in the comments.
