To the ladies who want a traditional type man, what do you bring to the table, what makes you worthy of a man like that?

questions like this make me laugh. so much passive aggression in this question. i think the asker is one of those guys that feel like this; "women always want a traditional guy but don't bring much to the table." " they only wanna be traditional when it suits them." "after you marry the women she's gonna get fat and not want sex anymore."
to be honest, traditional life makes me ill. its cute when i think of it in my dreams but the reality is there's a lot that could go wrong. if i divorce him, i wanna make sure i already have my own money, so when i leave i don't have to worry about being broke. the comments i'm reading at the bottom sounds like some 19th century shit, sounds like something a paid mistress/servant is going to do for a bachelor whom never really wanted to settle.6

Well I'm not going to lie. My boyfriend is a way better cook than me. We usually prepare the food together but he tells me what to do and is teaching me. If there wasn't a dish washer then I'd clear the table as it's only fair. I'm lazy AF when it comes to cleaning though haha. We both are and agree to take it in turns.
He is traditional in the way of being the one to take the lead and looking after me though. He is a typical dominant, alpha male and I find that incredibly attractive. I wouldn't say I'm a traditional girl at all. I'm not sure what exactly I bring to the table in terms of "traditional" things to be honest. I think what I bring is what any relationship should: love, laughter, companionship and support.1

Well that depends on the guy and how they see things. Just because I think I bring something to the table doesn't mean I do and just because someone is my type doesn't mean I am there's... the same goes the other way around as well. Most of this stuff is perception and mine is bound to be different from his, it doesn't matter what qualities I think I have but what qualities he thinks I have (and what qualities I view him as having ) and if they are in line with what he is looking for. I decide if you are my type and are what I am looking for and you decide if I am yours. I don't try to find the type of guy I'm in then start selling my self or assuming I'm a catch... that is for him to decide.2
I bring my awesome sense of humor, I can be classy as fuck, I'm loyal, can cook like no other, and I'm very dedicated.2
Not "competing" here, but, if there was a traditional sort of man I was attracted to in real life, I don't see why I would need certain qualities to attract his attention, especially seeing as every man is different.
My elegance and eloquence may be attracted to some, may be snobby towards others.
My shitty cooking and may be amusing and cute to some, unacceptable for others.
My habit of cussing (as seen above) may be endearing to a few, and to others may be immature and rash.
Same goes for my cleaning not out of wanting to do it but to relieve stress, dancing in the kitchen in the middle of the night, my inability to do makeup, my love for books and the night, my bluntness and honesty, my sarcasm and realism, and other traits.
It really depends.3
I bring cookies and lasagna to the table? Is that enough?2
My obsession with having the floors spotless, bed always made in the morning, my love for music, and a type of love and respect for him that takes everything to a brand new level.1
Because I'm a traditional woman? I will cook, clean, let him take the lead / the decision, be always on his side, support him, stuff like that.1
I don t like labels
I am pretty moderate and I want a partner with similar views2
I'm more of a traditional woman. I have no problem staying home raising my kids, cooking, cleaning. Teaching my family, loving them, cherishing them. Just as long as my husband is pulling his weight.1
Being human is all it takes for someone to be treated best as possible x1
Food, clean dishes, my wonderful vagina2
I don't think thats how love and relationships work.1
Assuming you are talking about yourself, I guess she would have to bring your dinner to the table after she has cooked and cleaned all day. Good luck1
For me, it will be my loyalty to him.1
Id like someone whos a gentleman and honest0
