Newbe with no experience buys big boat
Since a lot of folks have chimed in about the lady issues in the book I will add my two pence.
Glenn, the problem is not who your looking for but were you are looking for them. I grew up in Maine and a lot of the reason I left was the women (on average) looked like cattle. Came down south and the prospects improved. The real secret is finding a good baptist southern girl. They tend to be intelligent and well educated and also take care of their looks. A bonus is they tend to look for a more traditional relationship with a man in that they expect a bit of an edge and not this new age metro sexual bs so popular today. Heck, a lot are even libertarians.
That said, good luck in your quest.
