QW 031012 “I'm not going to be the heartthrob”

This week’s Shields and Brooks reads a bit different, in a good sense, to me because of the following part:

I think it's time for Mitt Romney, Judy, just to say the following. “Look, I don't make your heart beat. I don't put a step -- sort of a life in your steps. And I'm not going to be the heartthrob that you have always wanted to give you an emotional lift or anything of the sort. What I am is, I am an incredibly dependable and competent person. I will be a great steward of this nation's economy. I have no vices. I am a good family man. And this is who I am. I'm not going to be touchy-feely.”
This is how Shields describes the Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Isn’t it a great line as a marriage proposal? I can tell this guy is going to be a good husband, a lovable father, and a dependable breadwinner. The thing is… whether the woman will know and admit that he’s going to be the one for herself. It’s not surprising for young women to seek everything they want in their future husband; boyfriend, husband, friend with mutual interests, advisor, playmate, companion, conversation partner, therapist, etc… It’s just IMPOSSIBLE. What we can do is to stop wanting everything from one person, and start wanting you cannot get from your partner from people around you. Please don’t get me wrong. I’m not rooting for cheating or open marriage or anything. I just want to say that you cannot expect everything you want from your loved one alone. You can have friends with whom you enjoy talking about your interests, from whom you get useful advice and knowledge, to whom you make stupid and nasty jokes, by whom you get constant encouragement, etc. Aren’t I a pragmatic type? No?
