In a small group, describe the “ideal” partner for you. Think in terms of personality, educational and family background, socioeconomic level, job, and personal values and beliefs.
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Ed: Hey Rocky! You've been sitting around all night. Get out and dance with someone like that woman over there.
Rocky: I want a woman who's affectionate and fulfills my every need, and that woman over there is just not the right type.
Ed: Okay, but what are your household responsibilities once you get home from work? Rocky: Hmm. Eat, watch TV, and throw out the garbage.
Ed: Wait, wait, wait. I can't believe I'm hearing this. In fact, you're never going to get married. I recently read a news report that said 40 percent of women don't think their husbands do their share around the house, and you seem to be that type. Rocky: Well, that's the way I am, but what's YOUR idea of the perfect woman?
Ed: Hey, and if I stick with you, this is going to be a long, lonely night. Say hello to Rusty for me.
