Well a woman will always want her man to be a loving, caring and understanding one (whatever her age is). It is true that preferences change, rather dwindle to only a few in the list as you grow older. It is a funny mail and good that you shared it with all of us :)

That requires work, and effort. Love is like a trellis rose bush. It needs guidance and tender loving care.

Hahaha! This is funny alright! The sender definitely saw the worst in his man in those age brackets that's why she keeps on changing her preferences. Hmmm, this is funny but it is actually leaning on the truth. But well, we ladies alone does have that list, men can start their wishlist too and I bet it's funny as well

Most truly funny truisms are funny because they've more than a kernel of truth in them.

This is very interesting and true also for many girls out there I also find things I wish personally to have from the man in my life after 72 years old but I think the problem is with many men who just cannot see the toilet properly and do it a bit outside it. It is a funny list with facts inside.

It's too bad that um...urinating sitting down is considering unmanly, especially for the eyesight challenged of the male gender. Being a Ms. Short sight myself, I can relate.

It is an interesting list. Yes, there will be differnce in what women need from man according to age. I am 26. At this age what I want from man is: 1.Care 2.Remember birthdays and anniversaries 3. Fun loving 4. Keep me happy 6. Financial support 7. Romantic lover I don't care much about how handsome he is, but at the same time I don't want anybody to say 'look at him, he is ungly'. Thank you. This is a nice discussion.

Your very welcome. Also, we must consider that 'ugly' is in the eye of the beholder... What is ugly to one person maybe merely homely to another, and endearing to a third.
