Should be smart, good looking and well educated

No I am not advertising anything for myself. I was going through some matrimonial websites to find the Indian grooms (not for me dammit!) and found this one as a common statement: What are you looking for? "The girl should be smart, good looking and well educated". The rest is usually stated in different ways but mostly obfuscated. The essence will be "To excel both in managing home and outside. And should be working. And should bring a huge dowry. And should be smarter than he is. And better looking than he is. And should listen to his instructions for the rest of his life. And he should be treated like a god etc etc etc...". May be they find this the only way to improve their own gene bank - Male chauvinist jerks. Not all of them though. There are some really good people out there who do not write themselves as being Executives in their matrimonial profiles. God knows how can one become an Executive with 5 years of work experience. May be some other blog on the resume pet peeves.
