In fact, everybody should go and learn how to cook. You really should look out for a woman who knows her way around the kitchen (in the absence of sentiments).

Yet, one can easily observe whether the other has an understanding spirit at the early encounters. You need an understanding woman. It makes your life fulfilled, gives you peace, builds your confidence and encourages you the most.
14. Reasonable Intelligence: Intelligence here is not concerned with academic intelligence, although it may be concerned with emotional, environmental and otherwise. Intelligence here implies intelligence generally. This implicates one’s ability to reason, understand, contribute, operate, adapt and the list goes on.

We intentionally refrained from using the regular clause ‘an ideal woman’ because after all there is no such thing as ideal ‘human’. It is a concept that only existed in the mind. In effect, there is still no perfect woman out there. The above discussed list constitutes basically those qualities which when inhere in a woman, makes the man complete.
They are still those basic qualities expected of an average human being, gender regardless. Better put; they are those humanistic qualities we owe to each other, especially to those whom we are in close obligation and relation to. Absence of those items suggests some degrees of incompatibility and foresees possible difficulties with dealing with the person.
