    Hard about this book on the Early Show

    I don't nevessarly agree with this book or the Author. I have not read the book but listened to the author on the Today Show. There were two people being interviewed about the book one a lady and a man the lady I think was the author and the man maybe a co author. Anyways, I disagree with the points the lady was making. What I agree with is the author saying how women want the "fairy tale" man and that he must be tall, dark, career oriented and make good money. I think those are such lofty goals that it set's so many women up for dissapointment especially the tall and dark. I think a great analogy is like a job is like when college kids have this mind set that a lot of professors say that oh once you graduate you can go get your job and they make it sound as though you can pratically just walk into a job, just grab the job and start making great salaries. It's not that easy and yeah it would be awesome if it were. But once college students graduate then you get the real shock of companies are not going to just give you a job and I am real guilty of this as well when you first graduate you feel as though you should just be able to get a job and get going and so on. But anyways, back to my point I think it's real similar to women having these lofty goals in dating a man that they think he must just must be super tall 6' and over the dark part I don't hear that much that he must be dark (I don't think that's a huge deal to woman), and also that he must have a job and make decent money. I completely agree with the having a job and decent money but I think one big catch that women have this way big expectation that he's going to make all this big sorts of money and life is going to be all hunky dorey and just "easy". I think women are learning especially with a bad economy now that it's not like that and it takes work and your not going to just be instantly make a huge load of money and life is going to be all hunky dorey all the time. It takes work and also what women are realizing is that everyone is sustable to being laidoff both men and women and it's a hard hard world and is not just all hunky dorey.

    The being career minded, educated start owning a house etc I completely agree with. What I don't agree with is the height issue being, dark and the expectation that you will immediately be with a man that instantly make boocoo money, dosen't work that hard yet has his career going and dosen't have a worry in his life. That is just pure fantasay and I think women these days are finally realizing with the economy that it is just fantsay and dosen't just simply work that way. Women are finding that the economy is very hard for everyone and one can't just simply fall into a career and start making huge loads of money and poof you got the sweet life instantly. Doesn't work that way period.
