Guys, Whats the difference between dating, girlfriend and a wife material?

Why would you date a girl if she's not a wife material?


Most Helpful Guy

  • dating: attractive, not cazy, bearable personality

    gf: attractive, smart, fun to talk to and hang out with, similar interests/humor, sweet, trustworthy, makes me feel safe, classy, low partner count

    wife: to justify the risks of marriage, shed have to have all the traits of girlfriend but to the extent that I can truthfully think to myself "gee this girl is really something special, it would be near impossible to find another girl who possess the same combination of qualities that she does" also "I can really see us lasting more than 10 years"
