No, I dine with wine. There is a difference.
How many bottles with each meal?
Not enough.

One thought if I may:

Has anybody here read "Nana" by Zola ?
She was not pretty, she could not sing or dance and yet when she appeared on the stage all men fell on their knees in adoration.

She must have had some incredible inner beauty or some charisma.

Men are usually attracted to gorgeous women, but permanently ? Or just for a moment and then they seek something more behind the outer beauty ?

Very true. Sometimes a beautiful woman will rely on appearance to get by and just remain self obsessed and superficial. Then when external beauty fades and inner beauty never developes, she is left with nothing.

A beautiful woman flatters the man´s ego.
He (or his genes) were good enough to impress her and to become her partner.

For some men this can be enough.

Some men could expect some other things as a deal: soothing qualities, amiable disposition, soft voice, suprising statements and insights, ...

The point is to find out what you really want. In your heart of hearts.

Unless she ends up with you and is left with less than nothing.

The ideal woman for the modern man has no inner beauty. if she does it is unimportant. Consider what the modern man wants. It is all on the surface. Depth is unimportant since he has been conditioned to lack the depth necessary to appreciate it.

What about what the modern woman wants? Whatever it is, I'm making an educated guess that you haven't got it.

I used to read Men'shealth, they had some interesting articles on nutrition, but psychology was not their long suit.

BTW, I probably wouldn't be considered as a "modern man" by their definition.
