Wanted: A girl with Ooooomph

It's not so easy to put into words what I am looking for. I can tell you what it's not - not some "Yes" girl, a baby maker and house cleaner who will agree dutifully with everything hubby says.

What is "Oooooomph"? It's a combination of character, personality, edge, zest, passion, intelligence, street smarts, confidence, bite, balls, brains.

I need someone who will debate, argue, criticize and joust with me intellectually. Someone who won't let me dominate conversations, who is well read and well versed, yet not an intellectual snob. Opinionated yet capable of seeing the other side. Full of conviction and moral fiber. One who has so much to teach me in so many different areas of life in such a short space of time. Who will join me on my spiritual, emotional and intellectual quest for truth, love and G-d during this fleeting existence.

Is that too much to ask?

Just find me one girl who is:
a "Yes" girl
a baby maker
house cleaner
dutiful agreeing to everything the husband says.

It doesn't exist. What kind of imaginary world do you live in? Those are called stepford wives.

TRK,

don't give up yet. She for sure exists somewhere and I will pray for you to find her (what's your name ? :) ).

Have you tried SawYouAtSinai ?

That's much clearer. There are girls like that out there, and by the way, rockofgalilee, there are also girls out there who are "yes" women, baby-makers. I can't stand to watch them. You'll find her, TRK, and hopefully it will be soon.

A girl with Balls?

Um, living in NYC we have em, but, lulei demistafina, we don't call it "Ooomph"!

Seriously, though, you are starting to sound like the women who say all they want is "nice" guy with "a sense of humor" who will "treat them well." Problem is, when the chips are down, that ain't what attracts them.

And the same is true of guys...I absolutely guarantee you, lulei demistafina, that if you met the very girl you describe, but she wore an A-cup, you wouldn't consider marrying her for a minute.

Furthermore, while I hated it when people told me "A wife isn't a chavrusa" there still is some truth to that maxim. Marriage is not a CNBC talk show--it's a lot more about changing dirty diapers. Yes you need a girl who passes the Billy Joel test--"I just want someone that I can talk to"--but beyond that, it's reality, not the girl, that bites.

ROG,

I'm afraid they do exist, maybe not quite as bad as I made out, but they are out there and many guys go for that kind of thing.

Hayim,

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm not (yet?) an internet dater - nothing against it, but I only browse jdate et al for fun.

Shoshi,

Right back at you girl! Glad I could help.

Malks,

If she has a brother and you get your swimming expedition over and done with, then we'll talk.

CJ,

1) Don't they live in Thailand?
2) I know the females from NYC
3) What do you call it?

And CJ,

I respectfully disagree - the A-cup doesn't bother me - whatever she has will probably end up going south after the football team of kids we plan on having! Didn't you read my post about once falling in love with a girl's mind?

OBVIOUSLY physical attraction has to be there. No doubt. But it ain't the be all and end all. Not even close. That was my point. Dating girl is nice, sweet, fairly attratcive, from a good family. If I was a normal guy I'd probably keep seeing her. But she doesn't have the Ooooomph. Gettit?

If I find a version of myself that's slightly less philisophically confused and 3-7 years older, I'll tell you.

TRK: I couldnt have put it better myself. When you find her, does she come with a twin sister?

Um, out of just plain curiousity - How old are you? I mean it is not usual to hear a guy just dying to get married, but you don't sound that old.

Bri,

Please go and post something flirtatious on Cloojew's site, otherwise he'll send Tony Soprano and his boys over to have words with my kneecaps!

Kish, behave.

Karl, shall we go on the prowl for twins?

TM,

I'm coy about my age, but I am very not dying to get married, I'm just aware 1) what kind of a girl I'm looking for and 2)getting married probably is the long term solution for frum single people's horniness (though definitely not a sufficient reason to get married). Thanks for saying I don't sound that old, but the name "Rabbi's Kid" is designed to throw people off. I have tasted the sweet waters of life, traversed the planet, plunged the depths of wisdom, but wish to return to the child-like wonderment and innocence of my youth.

so what is the plan? wait for fate to intervene? or have a well-planned strategy to execute? i am struggling with those same thoughts.

TRK, You may not be "dying" to get married, but your soul is, lulei demistafina, slowly wasting away as time passes and you don't reach your potential as a Jew, whatwith your need for sex and your need to behave and your need for companionship and your need for spirituatl advancement.

"Old" to me is over 25 in the sense that past that age, guys start to deteriorate spiritually and physically.

I'm sure you'll find someone like that, though you are asking a lot

 
At 6/05/2005 11:13 AM, Blogger TwennyTwo said...

Yo, insha'Allah, you'll find her.

When you do, can you send me her brother???

We women are looking for exactly the equivalent of what you're looking for.
