I always see people on here and other places talking about women need to bring more to the table than sex.

I just want to know what you guys feel you bring to the table.

This is not a men v. women thread just the part about bringing more than sex led me to make this thread. So you ladies are free to answer also. 

I'm talking about outside the obvious like you dont' lie, cheat, or abuse you SO.

I'm talking about relationships here not just casual sex and #%#%.

You can go through the list of the regular stuff like you work go to school and have a good head on your shoulders but that doesn't necessarily mean you're great or even ready for a relationship.

This thread isn't about me but just a general question that I've always wanted to know how other people would answer.

Me personally, women always tell me how comfortable they are around me. I don't pressure them into anything they don't want to do. They are human with faults just as I am so I'm not quick to judge. I like to keep it as spontaneous as possible and keep the humor alive.

I don't press woman and they seem to like that. Most women especially younger women don't want to be crowded and a "clingy" man is never a good look. Plus I try to keep it fresh, and by that I mean dates are creative and I know when to be romantic without coming on too strong. I'm not gonna hop on here like i'm big daddy conk lol but I give respect where its due with women. If its deserved than u kno...

-I come from a good family and am very family orientated
-Highly intelligent with street smarts to boot
-Not cheap
-Never had a problem getting a job or being broke
-Not argumentative but not a pushover either, though I have no problem being the bigger person if necessary
-I'm cultured
-Excellent communication skills, verbal and non-verbal
-Emotionally stable
-Romantic but not mushy

Umm I could probably keep going but that's a start.

Well its only appropriate that I list some of the bad as well.

-I'm impatient
-I'm very sarcastic, sometimes to a fault
-I'm blunt, sometimes to a fault
-I can be unemotional sometimes
-I have a lot of pride
-I don't like to talk on the phone

Umm there's more of that too, I'm sure. But I do think that as far as husband material goes, I'm the pick of the litter.

*Easy to talk to. Women sometimes need somebody to just LISTEN. There are times when they aren't necessarily looking for feedback, they just wanna get some stuff off their chest. I'm a good listener.
*I'm good at making women (anybody, really) laugh. Women tell me all the time I don't "try too hard", and they like that.
*I hate arguing. And if I do argue, I'm not into that whole "I need to have the last word" %#!%. That's so pointless.
*HUGE family person.
*Smart. I didn't go to college and I don't have any type of secondary education, but I'm smarter than a lot guys my age who do.
*Hard Working. I don't complain, that's life


Negatives?

*Communication Skill could be better. I'm working on that, though.
*I can be selfish. But honestly, who isn't at times?
*I have a slight anger issue that I'm working on. It gets really bad. I'm not abusive or anything, though

*My love for family CAN be a negative thing. I starting to realize that your significant other can, at times, come before your fam in CERTAIN situations. It took me a minute to get that.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure their are some women who would add to that negative list, though

Besides my skills as a plumber.....

I give my wife the support she needs to tap her full potential and be an even better person.
