It all depends on the culture and the personality.
As far as physical appareance goes, it also depends on cultural influences. See women in Mauritania ie, where forced feeding is practiced for aesthetic reasons.

Yes, of course, because women are by default just overly emotional, overly hormonal, silly dependant creatures that must rely on the aid of the superior, dominant, logical males to make it through life.

Basically standards cannot be generalised between men and women, and just depends on the person rather than their gender. A bit like pretty much everything.

Having said that, this man is a legend. The rest of us should just shut up and take notes.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Do you think men or women have higher standards in the opposite sex?

GOAT=Fed

Anyways women have so many options and wants and needs to have in sex, we tend to want more variety and more satisfaction from men. However men tend to want to be the leader in every way, which is fine yes, but sometimes they expect way too much from a women to give them sexual desires. Sex has always been a trend for many many centuries i mean think about it, whats more fun than having sex, who doesnt wanna have sex, sex is a beautiful thing whether you're gay, straight, bisexual, transexual or any other orientation. In the end the women will always top the men when it comes to sex because women have more power to get men and/or women with their seductive tricks while the men will always have more power to spice up everything with men and/or women in the bedroom

EDIT: Any YES im off topic but i dont care

This.

Although it does vary a lot. Girls can afford to be more careless putting their trust in pills and condoms.

Re: Do you think men or women have higher standards in the opposite sex?

Like it's been said here, Men have high standards, but in the end they will settle for the medium/low "stuff".

Women are a bit different. They (like Men) will always look to your looks, but it can happen with many frequency that they don't get interested for that not that pysically interesting guy, but that same guy can turn around girls mind, with talking and being funny. The guy can't show too much interess in the girl, but have to show that he at least is interesting in talking with her. It's hard to explain, really, specially with english not being my first language.

Sometimes I agree, sometimes I don't. Specially when he generalize too much, it's the times I don't agree more. It's not like Bilbo is the male Oprah...
