If there\u2019s one term I truly hate with a passion, it\u2019s \u201cwife-material\u201d. The reason I find that term so damn annoying is because it\u2019s rarely used as a personal measure of one\u2019s taste, but more so as a wholly-encompassing set of attributes that ALL men are suppose to agree with as if we all share the same needs and wants. Many times I\u2019ve found myself in discussions with dudes saying \u201cbruh, is straight-up WIFE material bruh!\u201d And when I disagree with their assertion (mostly predicated on the fact that I don\u2019t actually KNOW her), I\u2019m greeted with the same bullshit responses about how I don\u2019t know what \u201ca real wifey\u201d is, and how I\u2019m gonna be alone until Jesus returns . I really believe that everyone has their own individual tastes of what they want in a significant other, but the one constant between us all as human beings is our desire for someone who can treat us with the love and respect we all want. That takes someone beautiful \u2013 but it\u2019s NOT the type of beauty that 90% of us talk about, or even recognize in the people we go after. The problem with the dudes I referred to earlier, as well as most men and women I interact with on a daily basis, is that so many of us have lost sight in what beauty REALLY means. Dudes are calling women \u201cwife material\u201d based on which chick has the nicest\u00a0 titties combo on Instagram, or which girl has the nicest ass or which woman has the prettiest face. Then you have dudes who feel like they are intellectually above just wanting a woman with a sexy-ass physique, who list their must-have qualities as shit like being able to cook, be a freak in bed, have a solid education, and be gainfully employed. Some dudes even add solid qualities like her having a sense of humour, being strong-minded and being intelligent. But the one quality very few men and women ever look for in a significant other is BEAUTY \u2013 and that\u2019s not about raw physical attraction, basic character attributes or some corny-ass ideal of inner-sweetness, but finding someone with actual inner-beauty that changes you so deeply to your core, it naturally makes you actually want to be a better man. Inner beauty is NOT about how friendly someone is, or how nice they are, or how they encourage you when you\u2019re down. Inner-beauty is NOT something that\u2019s necessarily shared with EVERYONE (i.e. calling Mother Teresa a \u201cbeautiful\u201d person because of how she treated the masses), because the beauty I\u2019m talking about is based on the quality of love that someone is willing to share with the person they care for. The truth is, most of us don\u2019t even know how to RECOGNIZE beauty in someone else that goes beyond skin deep. Now this is NOT an anti-superficial rant, because I will ALWAYS want an attractive woman and you CAN\u2019T convince me that the world doesn\u2019t have women who are amazing inside and out. But this is more about recognizing something that most of us SAY we want, but no one really knows how to look for. Instead of solely searching for someone who hopefully has an amalgam of various individual character traits, maybe we should look more closely in to whether or not they make US a better person. Just a thought for the next time you start making lists about what you NEED your future wife to have.
