The Perfect Girl?

Fred is 32 years old and he is still single.

One day a friend asked, "Why aren't you married? Can't you find a woman who will be a good wife?"
Fred replied, "Actually, I've found many women I wanted to marry, but when I bring them home to meet my parents, my mother doesn't like them."

His friend thinks for a moment and says, "I've got the perfect solution, just find a girl who's just like your mother."

A few months later they meet again and his friend says, "Did you find the perfect girl? Did your mother like her?"

With a frown on his face, Fred answers, "Yes, I found the perfect girl. She was just like my mother. You were right, my mother liked her very much."

The friend said, "Then what's the problem?" Fred replied, "My father doesn't like her."

Wait a minute!

Didn't the father like the mother when the mother was the girl's age?

Or perhaps he is acting with the advantage of hindsight?  :D

Lol - you know how too many people are very prompt to judge and compare the "package" rather than the contents.

You mean the 20-or-30-something girl looked like the 50-or-60-something mother?  :O

Or was the new 'girl' actually 50 or 60 years old?  :O :O :O

Lol - we can only assume that the girl was simply less sexy and looked probably too much like a devoted, perfect, but boring, conventional housewife - you know, the the kind of more or less humble or blushing "holier-than-thou" ...

@ Marianne:

But, but, but... I thought devotion and humility were supposed to be admirable virtues!  :O

Of course, sexiness counts too... :angel:

Lol - I asked that too - long ago; "no good deed goes unpunished" ...
