Could you guys elaborate on this sentence:
"I want a girl that knows what she wants"....
I was just wondering what exactly does it mean?
Like,right now...I KNOW I want an Oreo,but I have chocolate chip...And,I'm ok with that...
Does it mean that they don't want a girl that will settle for the chocolate chip,even though she KNOWS she wanted the Oreo?
It's just a confusing sentance.

You could look at it in two distinct ways.

Option A is when a guy actually means that "I want a girl that knows what she wants," meaning that he wants a female who doesn't pretend to be somebody she's not or doesn't play head games or is looking for a serious relationship.

Option B is when a guy says it with a hidden meaning behind it. In this view, it's not "I want a girl who knows what she wants," but rather "I want a girl who knows what I want." That means he's obviously looking for a chick who will submit to his wishes, whether it's sexual or otherwise.

She knows what she wants in life, and goes for it. As in; school, career, man, etc.

It's just a confusing sentence. 

It is somewhat confusing considering that our wants change over time. I wanted a Nutter-butter the other night, but was just as happy with my peanut better and Ritz. LOL..

Ok, ok, ok... being serious, which I hate to do, I dated a lady a couple of years ago... it started out as friendship but progressed quickly. But no matter what we were going to do.. she had to call her sister and ask her what she thought. Our first meeting, her sister was there, after that, while her sister wasn't there, the cell phone was, and she called her sister seeking her advise ALL the time. Everything we did was told to the sister... and I mean everything. It just got to be a little too strange for me. What I'm saying is... if you have to check with other people about what you want.. then you don't know what you want... hope that makes some sense... oh... I'd rather have the chocolate chips.. LOL

I think men who say things like this are struggling with women who dump them. Cuz when she finds out what she has (after a couple months), she gets gone! He is left think "I want a woman that knows what she wants". One the other hand it does seem to me that many people dont know what they want, or that their expectations are misdirected.

I think that can translate a couple ways in man language,like I want a girl who knows what she wants so that she will make the first move...

I want a girl who knows what she wants so I dont have to spend to much time figuring it out just to find out I am not it lol.

Or I want a girl who is gonna be wrapped with me and stay happy with me because she is confident with what she wants and I am it lol.

All that could be wrong though just a theory.

Yep, Jem nailed it.... She knows what she wants in life, in bed, emotionally, spiritually, etc and isnt afraid to go get it.

Well....Just because we know what we want in life,doesn't mean we are going to get it. I think everyone has a chance to go for what they want,but they shouldn't get discouraged if something doesn't happen like they planned. When one door closes...usually another door will open...

I am happy for you,Nighty. At least you didn't "settle" for someone throughout the 4 years and finally found the ONE.

i had almost made up my mind to settle. i thought i didn't know how to love anymore. i was just going to find someone nice and try to be content. i was lucky. i did find someone nice and he just swept me off my feet.

Good post Gama. Sometimes it takes a month or 2 to really get to know someone...You can think they are "all that" at first,and things they say or do over time can change your mind about them.

Ok guys,what about this one:
"I like the way you carry yourself."
Hmmmm....is it even POSSIBLE to "carry yourself"?? LMFAO!

I am guessing it is the way you walk. (???)

Probably more the way you act around others. Like, if you have bad service, you don't start yelling like a crazy bitch, but instead talk like a sane person lol. The way you portray yourself?

personally i hate that line "i want a girl/guy who knows what they want"
what does what i want have to do with anyone? hmm? <--is my response.
though i think i means eather that the person that posted that; don't know what they want in a person, perhaps someone who actually has goals in life like i know i'm going to open a coffee shop... so i know what i want, just gotta get there.

basically; vague, half-assed question.
